5 Tips and Tricks to Get Rid of Cellulite

How to Get Rid of Cellulite

DIY Cellulite Firming Scrub Recipe

We all know 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 cellulite patches on your thighs, it will.

You must eliminate every other piece of fat on your body; you must wait and keep exercising and eating right. That's what traditional diet and fitness advice tells us, but it's incorrect.

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 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.

Supplies Needed:

  • Pyrex or glass bowl
  • Spatula
  • Sterilizing Solution (Rubbing Alcohol or Vodka)
  • Wide Mouth Jar with Lid
  • Organic Coconut Oil
  • Coarse Salt, any type, Dead Sea, Pink Himalayan. Etc.

How to make a Cellulite Firming Scrub

  • 3 oz. Organic Coconut
  • 2 oz. Sea Salt
  • 8 oz. Coffee Grounds

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. Rinse off with water once the exfoliant begins to dissolve and your skin absorbs the moisture (about 30 to 60 seconds in one area).

Then, pat dry. Follow up with a moisturizer for extra hydration. Super simple. Try it today.

How to Get Rid of Cellulite

Massage Problem Areas

Believe it or not, you can significantly reduce the appearance of cellulite through massage. Deep tissue massage stimulates blood flow to the skin's surface. 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. Tools like a dry brush or hand-held wooden roller with beads are great options.

Get Plenty of Omega-3s

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. So you can do a lot for yourself by switching to these healthy fats and saying no to others.

Now that we've discussed what you can do to rid yourself of cellulite- let's find the best products for your skin.

Coffee is the most effective at smoothing and rejuvenating your thighs, legs, abdomen, arms, and any other body part you want to target for cellulite reduction.

You'll need to know what ingredients to look for to find the right product. 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 organic 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. However, if you don't need to get rid of rough areas, you can skip the sugar or sea salt and look for an excellent oil-based cream or moisturizer.

Rev-Up Your Lotion With Caffeine or Ginseng

If you want to kick your cellulite cream into high gear, you can stimulate your skin the same way you wake yourself up in the morning. For an at-home mixture, you can use coffee grounds or look for a product 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.
