We all know that there’s no way to target exercises or diet in a problem area. No matter what you do, if your body wants to hang onto those patches of cellulite on your thighs, it will.
You will have to get rid of every other piece of fat on your body; you have to wait and keep exercising and eating right. That’s what traditional diet and fitness advice tell us, but it’s not precisely 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.
You may not be able to wipe away your cellulite with a magical beauty product, but you can create smoother, firmer skin with an excellent firming cream.
Cream with the right ingredients will add moisture, stimulate collagen production, invigorate the tissue in the affected area, and smooth your skin.
A high-quality firming cream won’t make the fat in the target area melt away, but it can certainly make it appear that way. Next, 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 a 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.
Sanitize your supplies. If you have never made skincare products at home, watch our Beauty Blending 101 video to show you the proper techniques for sanitizing your work area and supplies.
In a Pyrex bowl, add 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 surface of your body. 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 Problem Areas
Believe it or not, you can significantly reduce the appearance of cellulite through massage. This is because deep tissue massage stimulates blood flow to the surface of the skin. More blood flow promotes more collagen production and brings more collagen and elastin 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.
While you reduce cellulite's appearance with topical cellulite cream, you can 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 heard about.
By consuming more of these and less food that’s heavy in omega-6 fatty acids, you may notice a significant change in your body composition. Omega-3 fatty acids are also excellent 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.
Now that we’ve talked about what you can do to rid yourself of cellulite, let’s talk about finding the best products for your skin.
Coffee is 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, you’ll need to know what ingredients to look for. Natural ingredients are always better than synthetic ones. As you may have already guessed, cocoa butter, avocado oil, sugar, and sea salt are great ingredients to look for in a cellulite reduction cream or scrub.
If you are making a homemade scrub, opt for the organic versions of ingredients when possible.
We recommend a scrub if you want to exfoliate dead and old skin cells at the same time that you’re buffing away the appearance of cellulite. If you don't need to get rid of rough areas, though, you can skip the sugar or the sea salt and look for an excellent oil-based cream or moisturizer.
If you want to kick your cellulite cream into high gear, though, you can 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 look for a 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.
