Despite how challenging it is to keep cellulite away for good, there are things that you can to do minimize its appearance. You can combine diet, good lifestyle choices, and some natural products to say goodbye to major signs of cellulite â€“ for good.
For those of you who want to completely banish cellulite, we want to honestly tell you that it may not be possible. Sometimes, the metabolism, skin, and genetics we've been given don't make for an absolutely flawless look. But you know what? That's OK, because we want you to embrace who you are on the inside, and then do your best to keep your body as healthy as possible.
That being said, by following the advice in this article, you can get your skin and body in the best shape possible, which means that you'll naturally get rid of most signs of cellulite.
Drink Lots of Water
If you increase your daily intake of water, your body will begin to shed fat and stored water, which will in turn break down the fatty complex that appears outwardly as cellulite. Also, water is great for improving collagen in the skin. It makes skin stronger and less prone to curving around fatty lumps.
Eat a Plant-Based Diet
People who eat a plant-based diet typically take in less fat. To get rid of cellulite, you need to lose body fat. Fortunately, there isn't any fat in most fruits and veggies. The more fat you have in affected areas, the more dimpled your cellulite will look. If you lose fat, you take pressure off of the surrounding tissues, which means you don't see the unsightly exaggerated pitting that comes with cellulite.
Get Enough Sleep
When you don't get enough sleep, your cortisol and glucose levels increase, and that's bad news if you're trying to combat cellulite. Hormone imbalances lead to water and fat gain, which makes cellulite worse. Also, lack of proper sleep leads to higher levels of the hormone ghrelin, which is the hormone that controls appetite. If you don't sleep, you may feel hungrier and end up overeating, which will cause you to pack on fat.
Stress causes hormones to go haywire, and drastic hormonal changes weaken the fibrous tissues surrounding fat cells. This can negatively affect the skin's support structures, which makes cellulite look more prominent.
Dry Brush Your Skin
Some women swear by dry brushing skin as a means of decreasing cellulite. If you try this method, be sure to use a dry body brush with natural bristles. Dry brushing areas affected by cellulite stimulates the lymph system, helping it to carry toxins out of the body and improve the health of skin and other tissues.
Use a Coffee Scrub
The caffeine in coffee tightens up the skin and provides it with much-needed antioxidants, which gives it a more desirable appearance. You can make a coffee scrub with ground coffee and coconut oil, and the coconut oil will moisturize the skin as you scrub.
