Tips To Get Rid Of That Lumpy Bumpy Cellulite That’s Making You Miserable

Cellulite is caused by fat deposits that build up like little marshmallows under the skin and cause a dimpled effect or cottage cheese appearance. Fibrous tissue connect your skin to a deeper layer, creating the pockets of fat cells. When these fat cells grow in size they cause a dimpling effect on your skin.

Cellulite forms mainly around your stomach, hips, thighs, and buttocks. A cure for cellulite has not been found however there are some ways to make it appear smoother. Here are some natural cellulite remedies for you to consider (just remember to consult with your doctor prior to any change in supplementation or beginning a diet, detox or exercise program):

Drink Plenty Of Water

Drink plenty of water, take garlic and iron supplements to help you with water weight and help flush out fat. Of course, always check with your doctor before beginning any supplement, diet or exercise program.

Eat Leafy Green Vegetables & Healthy Fruits

Detox your body by consuming fresh fruits and vegetables everyday. Fasting is also a great way to detox however be sure to have a full physical before trying to fast for more than one day to be sure your body can handle it.

Spring is often considered the best season to detox as the weather is more favorable on an empty stomach when it’s not too cold or hot. Some believe, however, that a detox should be practiced multiple times each year. Many experts suggest green foods, including chlorella, as they are said to be excellent for the liver. Be sure to eat lots of leafy green vegetables including broccoli, spinach, dandelion greens and kale. Eat them steamed, raw or juiced and enjoy the reward of healthy, beautiful skin.

Essential Oils Cellulite Massage

Apply an essential oil recipe for cellulite¬†or one of the quality cellulite creams available to your problem areas to improve the appearance of your skin. Do not use essential oils or cellulite creams if you’re pregnant without consulting your herbalist or doctor as some oils can stimulate uterine contractions.

Coffee Ground Cellulite Smoother

Use warm coffee grounds and rub them into the thigh area. Rinse off after 10 minutes. You can add a little oil to the coffee grounds to make it more of a paste. Most of it falls to the ground so have the floor protected with plastic or newspapers. Many cellulite creams have caffeine in them. If you make coffee every morning anyway you now have a free source of cellulite treatment.

Don’t leave this on for more than 10-15 minutes unless you can handle caffeine well. I know someone who used this on her friend and although the results were visible, they got distracted and left it on about 30 minutes. Her friend was bouncing off the walls from a caffeine buzz. Be careful and don’t use this method at all if you’re caffeine-sensitive.

Consider A Healthy Exercise Program

Exercise for beautiful skin. Try adding 20-30 minutes a day of aerobic exercise to increase blood flow. Also consider muscle building moves for firmer, better looking legs and hips. Make sure to shower right after to wash off sweat or oil from perspiration.
