Regardless of age or weight, cellulite affects most women. It is no secret that exercising and dieting are essential to combat cellulite, but you can also try at home natural tricks that will help you have beautiful and toned skin. Here are some of them:
Use a stiff brush made of natural fibers, to dry brush the areas affected by cellulite. This will remove dead skin cells, stimulate circulation and lymphatic drainage so that cellulite will be reduced.
For best results, dry brush the skin for five minutes before the morning shower.
Peeling with coffee grounds
Another cheap and handy solution to fight against cellulite is using coffee grounds at every shower. By massaging with coffee grounds you removed the dead skin cells, improve blood circulation and stimulate lymphatic drainage.
This peeling helps to improve skin texture and diminish the appearance of cellulite.
You can use the coffee grounds leftover from your morning coffee.
Massage with essential oils
Essential oils such as cedar, rosemary, patchouli, juniper, lavender, lemon or eucalyptus are recognized for their anti-cellulite properties.
Mix 2-3 drops of essential oil with a tablespoon of olive oil and massage the areas affected by cellulite. You can put a few drops of essential oil in your bath water, as well.
Seaweed scrubs are among the most effective and inexpensive treatments against cellulite, and seaweed powder is the perfect base for an efficient homemade scrub.
You can mix seaweed powder with lemon juice or honey to get a cellulite treatment and to also hydrate the skin, at the same time.
For scrubbing away the cellulite appearance you can also use polenta flour and even fine sand.
It is also recommended to follow a detoxing diet. The accumulation of toxins in the body is actually the main cause of cellulite appearance. If you’re serious about getting rid of cellulite, you must also get rid of your bad habits such as smoking, drinking alcohol regularly or eating fast food and fried foods.
