Celebrities happily drop $405 on the Ultimate Total Body Hydra-Dermabrasion Resurfacing treatment at the Ole Henriksen Face/Body Spa in Los Angeles. Ole adapted the recipe for Redbook magazine — and it costs only $10. (Much closer to my pay grade.)
2 oz wet coffee grounds
2 oz Epsom salts
1 ripe avocado, mashed
2 oz plain Greek yogurt
Sunflower seed oil
In a medium bowl, mix coffee grounds and salts. In another, mix avocado and yogurt. Combine the contents of both bowls, stirring thoroughly. Mix in just enough oil to make a smooth — not runny — paste. Now step into the shower, get wet, and turn off the water. Here comes the fun part: “Using the entire palm of each hand, vigorously scrub your body from feet to neck for several minutes,” Henriksen says. When you’re done, just rinse and glow. Bonus: “You’ll feel an immediate lifting and constricting of the skin from the coffee — and incredible smoothness too.
That is too much for me but I don't think so for the celebrities.

Sounds like fun and I have heard it really works. Thanks for this I can wait to try it.

Now this is what I like! Taking the celebrity treatment and making it affordable for the average girl. This sounds like a good face and body scrub to replace an expensive microdermabrasion treatment, thanks!
