One clove of garlic, half a teaspoon of jojoba oil and two drops of tea tree oil. What does that spell? An anti-acne spot treatment. DIY skin care recipes are wallet-friendly beauty solutions. “You get to control what goes into your skin care products and tailor what you make specifically for your skin type, which is helpful [if your skin] changes with the season,” explains Stephanie Gerber, a beauty blogger turned author of Hello Glow, a DIY compendium of fresh, organic and effective spa recipes. The most overlooked ingredient in the pantry? Coffee. Use it as a cellulite-busting scrub, a puffy eye mask or to reduce buildup in your hair. But beware: It may temporarily deepen your skin and hair color.

 Coffee cellulite scrub recipe

½ cup (100 g) fresh coffee grounds

2 tablespoons brown sugar

¼ cup (60 mL) olive oil

Combine the coffee grounds and brown sugar in a small bowl. Apply the olive oil to any areas of your body that have cellulite. Then rub the coffee and brown sugar mixture into the oil in circular motions.
