If you don’t already know what cellulite actually is, the next time you are changing into something do notice the irregularities in the fatty skin layer on your thighs because everyone in three brown persons would have it. These basically are fat deposits just underneath the skin and are caused due to an unhealthy routine and even hormonal imbalances. A dehydrated body may also add to it. Yes, cellulite is manageable and needs to be managed because it gets worse as your skin begins to wrinkle with age. Here’s how that can be done.
Dry Body Brushing
In this method, all you need is a natural thin bristle body brush that is easily available at most general stores specifically in the bath and body care section. If you still face any predicaments finding it, look for it near the loofahs and you would find it hopefully. Dry brushing, as the name suggests, involves brushing the part of your body with cellulite (the thighs for instance) in circular motions for at least five minutes but making it a regular practice. This highly improves the blood circulation and also helps you in getting rid of dry skin.
This is somewhat similar to the previous point but for scrubbing you do not always necessarily need to have a dry brush and a cream base is normally used, so it’s not dry. You can massage the thighs with shower gel using an in-shower body exfoliating puffy sponge that almost every store has in the toiletries section. Do make sure that once you are done, you should moisturize your skin.
No, this does not only include your morning coffee mug but is more than that. Coffee granules do not only act as exfoliants but also help increase and improve the blood flow in the body. Make a paste of coffee granules with coconut oil and work it into a massage on the targeted area at least twice a week. The granules help with the rejuvenation of new cells whereby the coconut oil makes the skin supple and soft. For added effect, you can wrap plastic wrap around the area after application of the coffee paste, before washing it off after ten minutes.
Apple Cider Vinegar
Little did you know that apple cider vinegar is not just to make your hair shine and for red velvet cake. It has properties that remove toxins from the body as well as help you get rid of any water retention in the body, therefore helping you with weight loss as well as cellulite reduction. All you need to do is mix one part apple cider vinegar with two parts of water and massage on the area, leave it on for around 20 minutes and rinse off. You can easily do this before showering.
Monitor your diet
Believe it or not, your diet does play a very significant role in building up of cellulite in the body. If you tend to consume foods that are pretty high in salty content, that contributes a lot in making the cellulite more defined and visible. Foods that are rich in fiber, however, need to be increased in your diet. Also, do check your water intake.
