Treating Cellulite at Home

Who likes to cover up at beaches and ignore the sassy miniskirts? None of us I guess. Cellulite is undoubtedly a growing concern amongst all the women belonging to all age groups and most of us think it is incurable whilst some of us assume that it can be depleted only by using expensive creams and having surgeries, which is not true, I mean the process of combating cellulite may be tough and it may take time to reduce, but it can surely be done.

This article will give you some tips on how cellulite can be reduced if not vanish them completely.

Massaging: Massaging helps in reducing cellulite, it is a great way of breaking down fat cells and it also increases the circulation of fat cells. Dry brushing is a massage technique used for getting rid of cellulite. You need a shower brush for dry brushing, and ensure that the shower brush has soft bristles. All you need to do is dry brush your cellulite affected area for about 10 minutes every day, ensure that the motions of the brush are circular. Your skin has to be dry too, no damp or moist skin. A dry brushing increase blood circulation and also tones the muscles.

Coconut Oil: Coconut oil supposedly increases the metabolism of your body. You can use coconut oil to decrease cellulite. There are many ways of using coconut oil to combat cellulite. You can either massage the cellulite affected area with coconut oil, or simply add coconut oil in your daily meals, or even consume a spoon of coconut oil directly. Coconut oil also has anti-aging properties and also moisturizes the skin.
Rosemary, almond and Sunflower oils: Massaging with rosemary, sunflower and almond oil loosens the cellulite thus reducing it. A frequent massage with these oils increase the lymphatic flow of the body and reduces the formation of cellulite.

Using Pantyhose: Yes, you read it right, wearing a pantyhose does reduce cellulite and it does so by increasing circulation of blood and compressing the fat. The market is full of tights which are specially made for reducing cellulite. These tights have in built caffeine in them, which penetrates into your body with the temperature variations of your body, this also breaks down the fatty tissues in the body which further results in reducing cellulite.

Coffee Scrub: Studies reveal that coffee apparently reduces the swelling caused in the fat cells, which makes the body skin appear smoother. Many cellulite creams do have caffeine as their key ingredient but you can use a coffee scrub made at home too. Roast some coffee pods on a β€œtava” and then put them in a cloth and wrap it around the cellulite area you can use a plastic wrap to do this too. Leave it on for around 10-15 minutes. The warmth of the coffee beans open up the pores in the skin hence allowing the caffeine to absorb in.

Body Wrapping: Body wrapping also reduces cellulite. There are a lot of varieties of body wraps available in the market. Herbal and mineralized body wraps are great for combating cellulite, as they help in stimulating the discharge of contents from the fat cells.

Diet: Diet also plays an important role in reducing cellulite. Fatty food stuffs anchor storage of more cellulite in the skin. A control on the fat intake reducs chances of more stcking up of cellulite in the body. Avoid fried snacks and sweets, also include lean meats in your diet and bake you food instead of frying it. Increase the intake of fruits and vegetables in your diet. Have a fiber rich diet, and cut down on your alcohol and caffiene intakes. Avoid salty food too.

Apple cider vinegar: As we all know Apple cider vinegar aids weight loss, this is also very effective with reducing cellulite. All you need to do is gulp down like 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar with a lot of water. You can even dilute the vinegar with water and honey. Massaging the cellulite affected area with apple cider vinegar also reducing cellulite.

Detoxification: You need to detoxify your body to get rid of cellulite. Particularly the colon and the liver needs to be detoxified if you need to get rid of cellulite.

Exercising: Work out your muscles at least 3 times a week. Remember, more muscle and few fats equal to reduced cellulite.

Hope these tips helps you all in combating cellulite.
