Cellulite is the one thing that come between you and that pretty mini skirt on a Saturday night. While cellulite can be genetic, it is also a result of many other factors like hormonal issues, diet and lifestyle choices. Even thin and fit people can have cellulite. We’ve made a list of home remedies for cellulite care. Take a look.
How to Get Rid of Cellulite
Here are some natural cures for cellulite.
Dry skin brushing can effectively open the pores of your skin. In Ayurveda, dry brushing is called garshana. When doing this, you should start from higher lymph node areas like the groin and move downwards from there. Dry skin brushing tightens the epidermis and helps breakup the toxic material that cellulite is made of. After you are done with brushing, always moisturize with a hydrating lotion or oil. We recommend extra virgin olive oil.
Use a coffee scrub to reduce your cellulite. The massage and exfoliation can benefit your skin by stimulating blood flow and the caffeine in the coffee has a tightening effect on the skin.
What you need
1/4 cup ground coffee
3 tbsp brown sugar
2-3 tbsp coconut oil
Combine the ingredients until it becomes a paste-like consistency. Store in an airtight container. Massage on your skin once a day and leave on for about five minutes.
Hormone imbalance plays a huge role in cellulite formation. Change to a healthy diet which includes the necessary vitamins and nutrients required by your body. Make simple lifestyle changes, exercise regularly, follow a fixed routine. All this will help get your hormones in balance.
Green clay can stimulate blood circulation, remove dead cells and absorb impurities. It also repairs connective tissue.
Mix 1 cup green clay, 1/4 cup lime juice, 2 tbsp water and 1 tbsp organic honey. Make a thick paste. Rub the mixture on your skin firmly in circular motions. Cover with a plastic wrap. Leave on for about 20 minutes. Follow this at least 1-2 times a week.
