Cellulite is caused by fat stored in cells under the skin which push up towards the connective tissue and in this way create those bumps. This is how we get that uneven skin, orange peel like look. If you are like most of us women, you probably suffer from cellulite too. In fact, a huge majority of women do have cellulite. Thin women have it too.
Having cellulite can most of the times be a really big, frustrating and self-conscious problem. It can interfere with the way we see our bodies. Having cellulite can make us hate our bodies, feel uncomfortable in many situations when we need to wear less clothes and this can be really frustrating. Having to worry about going to the beach or wearing simple shorts because you are afraid that your cellulite will be visible – not funny!
What we desperately need is relief. We need a way to get rid of cellulite, and we need it now. There are millions of different types of products for treating cellulite out there, but let’s be real. Most of them do not work, and the ones that do work are way more than our budget allows. And those professional salon treatments or surgeries are too much of a risk, and too much money.
So what other options do we have? Actually, there are a couple of things you can do without spending a fortune or going through several painful procedures. You can do these things every day, in the comfort of your own home. These are some simple and cheap home remedies that can help you get rid of cellulite as much as any other expensive product.
When it comes to treating cellulite, coffee has to be number one on this list. Ground black coffee can be a perfect skin exfoliator that will improve the blood circulation in the affected part of the body and can make your skin firm and reduce the cellulite. Next time you drink coffee you can save the waste and rub it on the troubled body part.
This is a procedure of brushing your skin with those big, firm brushes. Although, it doesn’t need to be dry. You can instead try to oil your body with coconut or olive oil and then brush it. Many people have been satisfied from this home remedy and they claim that there has been a significant improvement.
Instead of buying some expensive and not proven exfoliating creams, you can do a product of your own. Exfoliation as a home remedy for cellulite can be done in many different ways combining many different cheap everyday products. For example, you can get any kind of oil (baby oil, olive oil, coconut oil) and some cane sugar or ground coffee.
Mix the oil with the sugar (or coffee) and exfoliate your skin with the prepared product. This is very good for your body and can help you get rid of cellulite and improve your skin condition. The oil will make your skin soft and tight, and the sugar will exfoliate your skin and remove dead cells. This remedy can be as effective as the ones you pay for. You can use this every day. Just exfoliate your skin with it a couple of minutes before taking a shower, and you’re good to go.
Although there are many opposed opinions of this one, there is no harm in trying. At least it will make your skin look good. Wrapping your cellulite part is a process which represents applying some cellulite reducing oil, cream, serum or exfoliator on your skin, and then wrapping that part with nylon foil or wrap. You can try wrapping your arms also with coffee grounds or sugar.
This process of wrapping can also be performed while exercising. This will enhance the results because when you are exercising you are sweating and this allows the cellulite affected part to soak the cream or serum more easily.
a mixture of apple vinegar, water and honey is another home remedy that is used for a long time. Although this is not a proven method, it is thought that one glass of this vinegar mixture every morning increases the metabolism and speeds the process of burning fat, which can contribute to losing cellulite.
Massages with honey
This is another method that is not proven, but massages with honey are thought to improve the blood circulation in the body and this is important for reducing the cellulite.
