You can treat yourself to the amenities of a spa without the extra cost by making your own coffee body wrap at home. Coffee body wraps are utilized at spas because of their ability to tone and even out skin texture. The treatment also has a slimming effect on the body. Your coffee wrap will also help to protect your skin from the sun's damaging rays and leave it feeling smooth.
Finely grind your coffee with the coffee grinder until you have enough grounds to measure ¾ cup. Put the coffee grounds into a large Crock Pot.
Bring four gallons of water to a boil in a large soup pot. Pour the water over the coffee grounds in the Crock Pot. Add the towels and let them soak for 20 minutes.
Spread newspaper over the area where you will be wrapping your body. Place your Crock Pot of towels at one corner of the newspapers.
Massage the coffee paste into the areas of your skin you would like to wrap. Begin wrapping the body by starting at the lowest area. Wrap a towel up each leg by starting at the ankles and moving toward the heart
Wrap the hips and stomach with another towel or two. Pull the towels tight, but do not cut off your circulation. Wrap a towel around each arm, starting from the wrist and working toward the chest.
Relax for 30 minutes, and then remove the towels and rinse your body in a warm shower to remove the coffee grounds. Wash your towels and reuse them for your next coffee body wrap up to twice a week.

Here are some great recipes for dry skin. I replace the olive with Organic cold pressed Coconut Oil rather than Olive oil. I believe Olive Oil is sometimes compromised in its quality!
With the countless rows of jars, bottles, and tubes of lotions, creams, and fancy moisturizers, can a natural remedy really be a better choice? The answer is yes, says Christine Lopez, MD, a dermatologist and assistant program director in the department of dermatology at the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio.
Natural oils and remedies tend to be pure, says Dr. Lopez, which makes them a better choice for many people. "Other over-the-counter products have a ton of ingredients in them,” adds Lopez. “Not only will they contain the active moisturizing products, but they can also have preservatives," That’s a given with water-based products. Alcohol and fragrances are other common ingredients in commercial products that can cause irritation or an allergic reaction, or be just more drying to skin.
It's often a good idea to keep it simple when it comes to beauty care, especially for people with allergies or a very sensitive complexion. Unlike lotions and creams with a water base and preservatives, pure oils have a natural base, making them great dry skin remedies.
The Basis of Dry Skin Remedies
Your skin naturally produces oil (sebum) which helps to protect the skin from moisture loss, but actions we take every day — forgetting to put on moisturizer or washing our hands in drying soap — can strip skin’s natural oils. Using beauty oils can help restore your skin’s sheen and put back a protective barrier against the elements to stop skin from losing its own natural moisture.
There are many ways to use natural oils, both on their own as a simple moisturizer and mixed with other ingredients to make a nourishing mask or exfoliating rub. Castor oil, lavender oil, and avocado oil each make a good natural remedy for dry skin, says Lopez. Aloe vera, a plant with natural healing properties, can also be infused in oils and used as a natural moisturizer. In its purest form, you can simply drizzle your favorite oil into warm bath water and treat yourself to a short soak; pat skin dry afterward to avoid rubbing off all the oil.
Try these dry skin remedies that use oils and other natural ingredients:
Use a rich moisturizer to protect skin and keep it from drying out. Make moisturizing part of your daily skin care routine each day as soon as you step out of the shower — slather your skin from head to toe with a rich, creamy product (the thicker it is, the richer it is). Other tips to keep skin in top shape: Avoid very hot showers, limit baths to 10 minutes, and opt for a mild body wash rather than a drying bar soap. You can also boost your water intake to hydrate your body and moisturize skin from the inside out.
