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.

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.
