Sick of cellulite, but feel like there’s nothing you can do about it?
Tired of feeling self conscious about the skin you’re in?
Well don’t be!
Cellulite doesn’t have to ruin your life. There are so many ways you can combat it, so stick around while we show you everything you need to know on how to get rid of cellulite.
What is Cellulite?
Cellulite forms when fat deposits and nasty toxins build up deep down in your deepest layers of skin. It can also begin to form when there is a lack of oxygenated blood to that particular part of your body as well. Poor circulation or the aforementioned fat deposits can be the culprit.
The good news is, once you notice cellulite forming, it can be easily managed. If, however, you ignore it, the dimpled skin can become permanent.
Get Rid of Cellulite Naturally
If you want to get rid of cellulite naturally there are several options available to you. Here are a few of our fave DIY’s and home remedies for getting rid of cellulite naturally.
Anti Cellulite Scrub
- 1/2 cup ground coffee beans (fresh or used)
- 1 tablespoons raw honey
- 2 tablespoon almond oil
(Multiply quantities as necessary – may need more depending on how much of your body you will be rubbing down)
To make this scrub all you need to do is combine all 3 ingredients in a bowl and stir.
Using it is just as easy. In the bath tub, dampen your skin then begin to massage the scrub into your cellulite areas using gentle circular motion. If you scrub too hard you can rub your skin raw and that will not help – be nice to yourself!
Massage into your skin for 5 minutes then rinse off using warm water. Always apply a deep moisturizer after this process.
Why it Works
We love this scrub because it’s easy to make, but also because it works. Coffee is rich with antioxidants that tackle fat cells for smoother looking skin.
Honey is a natural humectant, which means it locks in moisture to give your skin much needed hydration for firmer looking skin.
Finally, almond oil helps rid your skin of dirt and bacteria that is clogging your pores, while also maintaining your skins natural moisture barrier.
We know, we know – it may sound counter intuitive, but oil actually helps cleanse, not clog.
Homemade Cellulite Cream
You will need:
- 3/4 cup Coconut Oil
- 2 tablespoons shaved Beeswax
- 3 tablespoons Witch Hazel
- 10 drops Juniper oil
- 10 drops Rosemary oil
- 30 drops Grapefruit oil
- 30 drops Cypress oil
Making this is easy. Simply add all ingredients together EXCEPT the beeswax and coconut oil in a bowl and stir.
On the stove over low heat, melt your beeswax and then add in your coconut oil. Once everything is liquified, pour in the oils from the bowl and stir until well blended.
Store this cream in a glass jar and set aside to let it cool.
The beeswax and coconut oil harden when cool and should give a lotion-y, cream like consistency to it.
Why it Works
Juniper, rosemary and cypress essential oils are all great for increasing your blood flow and helping to flush toxins out of your body. They also aid in managing fluid retention.
Witch hazel is a great toner and skin tightener, which can help reduce the appearance of cellulite. It also hydrates, so when combined with beeswax and coconut oil, your skin will get a nice dose of moisture, making it look plumper and healthier.
Cellulite Massage Techniques
Did you know that giving yourself a little massage can help increase your circulation and help you reduce cellulite? Here are a few techniques for doing your own cellulite massage.
- Use a massage oil or lotion — or coconut oil if you want to be 100% natural. Oils and lotions designed specifically for massages are best because they don’t soak into your skin too fast, making it easy to actually massage your skin.
- Use Ayurvedic techniques, meaning massage towards your heart. Using firm, circular motions, massage your cellulite zones starting at the furtherest area from your heart and work your way towards your core. This cellulite massage technique stimulates circulation and really zones in on fat buildup that is causing cellulite.
- Spend quality time on all affected areas. Yep, this isn’t a quickie solution. You need to spend at least 5-10 minutes massaging each cellulite zone on your body. Knead your skin and give it the TLC it deserves.
Now that you know how to give yourself a nice anti cellulite massage, make sure you follow it up with a deep moisturizer — like the one we mentioned above!
