Getting Rid of Cellulite:
No woman likes cellulite. Cellulite is very common and most women have at least a little cellulite somewhere on their body. But that doesn’t make it any better, nor does it make you feel any better about yourself when you look in the mirror and see the little dimples on your otherwise smooth skin. So we look for ways to get rid of it. But cellulite is very stubborn. Exercising can help some, but not much, and it takes a while to see any effect. It matters more what you put in and on your body, if you want to encourage the cellulite to disappear.
Here are some things you can take to help reduce the appearance of cellulite:
Vitamin B-6 helps because it helps your body metabolize nutrients that increase your skin’s elasticity and get rid of excess liquid in your body that can make the appearance of cellulite more severe.
Fiber Supplements to help flush out toxins and waste also help get rid of cellulite.
Collagen supplements help increase your skin’s elasticity and firmness and decrease the appearance of cellulite. (Side note – collagen can also help with hair growth and strengthen hair strands)
Vitamin C is responsible for repairing red blood cells and producing collagen in your body which decreases the appearance of cellulite.
Other things to do to help get rid of or decrease the appearance of cellulite are:
Get your lymphatic system moving to keep flushing waste out so it doesn’t build up and turn back into fatty deposits (cellulite).
Massage your skin with a good lotion – preferably one that contains collagen, elastin, Vitamin A (Retinol), Vitamin E, and/or Vitamin C to keep the circulation moving and skin hydrated. But don’t overdo it on skincare products. You don’t need 14 million different things for your skin. One lotion that has a couple of the above listed ingredients in it will be better than using 4 different products every day.
Coconut oil is great to use as a massage for the skin in place of lotion. It’s natural, hydrating, and will help reduce the appearance of scars, stretch marks, and cellulite.
Use a coffee/sugar scrub a couple times a week, using coffee grounds. The caffeine in the grounds is great for tightening up your skin and improving its elasticity and the scrub helps improve circulation and remove dead skin cells and open up your pores, leaving your skin soft, able to breathe, and more welcoming to the lotion you will be using.
Drink water – stay hydrated. If you don’t give your body enough water to work with, it won’t be able to break down and flush out the cellulite. Flavored seltzer water and un-sweet tea are great alternatives to plain water. Just make sure there are no sweeteners in the seltzer water, including artificial sweeteners. Those are extremely bad for fat deposits.
