5 Tips and Tricks to Get Rid of Cellulite

How to Get Rid of Cellulite

We all know that there’s no way to target exercises or diet on a problem area. No matter what you do, if your body wants to hang onto those patches of cellulite on your thighs until it's rid itself of every other piece of fat on your body, you just have to wait and keep exercising and eating right. That’s what traditional diet and fitness advice tells us, but it’s not exactly correct. You can get rid of cellulite and get smoother, firmer skin, and you can treat problem areas before you rid your body of all of its other fatty deposits. No, you can’t do it with diet and exercise, but you can do it with a few beauty tricks. 

Use a High Quality Firming Cream or Scrub

You may not be able to wipe away your cellulite with a magical beauty product, but you can create smoother, firmer skin with a good firming cream. A cream with the right ingredients will add moistuHow to Get Rid of Cellulitere, stimulate collagen production, invigorate the tissue in the affected area, and smooth your skin. A high quality firming cream won’t actually make the fat in the target area melt away, but it can certainly make it appear that way. We’ll get to a few of the key ingredients to look for and use in your at-home cellulite treatments. You can also create your own cellulite firming scrub at home. If you have ever thought about trying to make skincare at home, this is your chance. You can find natural ingredients in your pantry.

  • Pyrex or glass bowl
  • Spatula
  • Sterilizing Solution (Rubbing Alcohol or Vodka)
  • Wide Mouth Jar with Lid

In a pyrex bowl, add the salt, coffee and coconut oil. Mix well with a spatula. Scoop into a wide mouth jar and lid. In less than 5 minutes, you can have an invigorating cellulite firming scrub! Wet down the skin you want to exfoliate and rub the oil and sugar mixture over the skin. Once the exfoliant begins to dissolve and your skin absorbs the moisture (about 30 to 60 seconds in one area), rinse off with water. Then, pat dry. Follow up with a moisturizer for extra hydration. Super simple. Try it today.

Massage any Problem Areas

Believe it or not, you can significantly reduce the appearance of cellulite through massage. Deep tissue massage stimulates blood flow to the surface of the skin. More blood flow promotes more collagen production and brings more collagen and elastins to the area. This can smooth the area and help the tissue become firmer and appear more youthful. Using tools such as a dry brush or hand-held wooden roller with beads are great options.

Get Plenty of Omega-3s

While you reduce the appearance of cellulite with topical cellulite cream, you can actually also reduce its occurrence and get it to start melting away by changing your diet. Omega-3 fatty acids are the “good” fats you’ve been hearing about. By consuming more of these and less food that’s heavy in omega-6 fatty acids, you may actually notice a significant change in your body composition. Omega-3 fatty acids are also great for your heart and liver function, too. You can do a lot for yourself by switching to these healthy fats and saying no to others.Leading Causes of Cellulite Formation

Now that we’ve talked about what you can do to start to rid yourself of cellulite, let’s talk about how to find the best products for your skin that will be the most effective at smoothing and rejuvenating your thighs, legs, abdomen, arms, and any other part of your body you want to target for cellulite reduction. To find the right product(s), you’ll need to know what ingredients to look for, and of course natural ingredients are always better than synthetic ones. As you may have already guessed, cocoa butter, avocado oil, sugar, and sea salt are all great ingredients to look for in a cellulite reduction cream or scrub (or to add to a homemade one). We recommend a scrub if you want to exfoliate dead and damaged skin cells at the same time that you’re buffing away the appearance of cellulite. If you don't need to exfoliate, though, you can skip the sugar or the sea salt and just look for a good oil-based cream or moisturizer.

Rev Up Your Lotion With Caffeine or Ginseng

If you really want to kick your cellulite cream into high gear, though, you can actually stimulate your skin the same way that you wake yourself up in the morning. For an at-home mixture, you can use coffee grounds, or you can look for a cream that advertises caffeine content. If you don't want to use caffeine, you can also use products that contain ginseng to give your skin that extra boost, too.
