For as long as women have existed, they have suffered from these unsightly thing called cellulite. Usually, these spots would appear around the thighs, but it’s not unusual to find them sneaking their way around your legs, buttocks, and stomach.
In a nutshell, cellulitis is described as free-floating fats that stubbornly deposit themselves underneath your skin. You know it from the minute you look at it because it looks like the rough surface of cottage cheese or orange peels. It doesn’t matter if you’re skinny or fluffy; if you’re ‘destined’ to have cellulitis, it’ll stick to you like glue. Thankfully, there are ways for you to get rid of it and stop the formation of these fats altogether.
The Dry Brushing Method
This move is a classic for women with cellulite all around the world. Essentially, what you will need to do is use your body brush to:
- Increase the lymphatic drainage
- Improve your blood circulation
- Get rid of the toxins that have accumulated in the upper layer of your skin
The actions above will function to reduce the appearance of cellulite on your skin and also reduce its formation on the long run. However, you need to make sure that the brush was made from natural fiber, to prevent any irritation. Dry brushing for 5-10 minutes every day for a few months will help your skin look much better.
Remember that delicious drink you probably consume every morning? Do you also remember the grounds that remain after you have your fill? No? Well, that’s because you’re probably throwing it away every time. From this point on, you may want to rethink that, because coffee grounds are a great exfoliating agent. As a result, they work wonders in the fight against the dead skin and fat cell formation.
To make a great exfoliating mix, combine ¼ cup of ground coffee with three tablespoons of sugar and two tablespoons of coconut oil. It can be applied as a paste and massaged for a few minutes, but it can be used as a wrap which you will leave on for 30 minutes.
Cayenne pepper is perfect when it comes to fat burning. This spice has the ability to increase the temperature of your body, boost your metabolism and improve your overall circulation. Studies also show that there are active agents in cayenne pepper that can help you eliminate the bad skin cells and replace them with healthy, new ones.
Not only will cayenne pepper eliminate the toxins from your body, but it will also reduce the apparition of cellulite as well. By making a detox drink using this spice as the main ingredient, you will start seeing results in just a few weeks. Mix about 1-2 teaspoons of cayenne pepper (powder) with one teaspoon of ginger (grated) and the juice of a lemon in one glass of warm water. Drink daily for best results.
Combined with exercise and a fair intake of water, these three will help you effectively get rid of cellulite.
