Unfortunately, cellulite is a very common problem women face. Cellulite affects the young and the old, the skinny and the heavy, and can be almost seemingly random at times.
While genetics and other factors come into play, there is no woman who cannot get rid of it. With the right program and plan, cellulite is reversible.
Stand up. Get up. Start walking around. Start moving your body. Find a hobby or activity that REQUIRES lots of movement. The more you get up out of that chair and move, the better blood flow you will have and the quicker the cellulite will go away.
A simple rule of thumb is to not spend more than 1 hour sitting without getting up.
2. DRY BRUSHING WORKS
“Dry brushing” have a powerful effect on cellulite reduction.
This makes sense because dry brushing causes a direct and immediate blood flow increase to the region being brushed.
Take a dry brush and slowly rub the effected area in a circular motion. Do this 1 time per day for around 5 minutes. Any more is unnecessary and can be damaging to the skin.
3. GET A COCONUT OIL MASSAGE.
Put your husband or boyfriend to work on your body. The key here is to let them be a little bit rough with the body. Not that you should be in pain, but the deeper the massage, the better effects it will have.
The point is to increase circulation in the skin. Using coconut oil will also better moisturize the skin and help with the healing process. 10 minutes minimum for best effects!
4. HYDRATION IS KEY
Circulation and hydration are best friends. By getting more water into the system, you’ll be naturally improving blood flow, increasing skin quality, and helping the metabolism.
However, while most people know the importance of water intake, the majority of people also struggle with sticking to it. Here are a few ideas that will help:
Use a half gallon jug of water. Buy a half gallon jug and fill it up with water every morning when you wake up. Yes, you’ll become “that person” at the office, but that’s ok. Being that person is often a good thing when it comes to being healthy.
5. FRUIT-INFUSED WATER BOTTLES WORK.
Hate the taste of water? Get a fruit-infuser water bottle to mix things up. This way, water doesn’t have to be boring and can be fun and tasty!
Drink a warm glass of lemon water immediately upon waking every morning. The key to getting the right amount of water is to make it a habit. By far, one the the easiest healthy habits that makes a MASSIVE impact on health is drinking warm lemon water in the mornings.
Use the rubber band technique. Wrap a rubber band around your water bottle every time you fill it up. Try to get in 100 ounces per day!
6. ELIMINATE SUGAR
Sugar is one of the primary food villians that causes cellulite. It causes:
– Fat accumulation
– Premature skin aging and reduced elasticity
These 3 things are some of the primary factors involved in cellulite production. If you need a sweet tooth fix, try gum or fruits instead!
7. EAT MORE OMEGA-3 FATTY ACIDS.
Omega-3s are one of the only nutrients out there PROVEN to increase circulation and blood flow in the body. And it’s not by a small margin either. The increase is sometimes by as much as 30-50%.
Eat lots of fish like salmon and halibut to get in natural omega-3s. A second tier solution would be to include flax seed oil and walnuts into the diet for omega-3s.
Finally, if neither of those work for you, supplementation is key. Get a high quality omega-3 fish oil, and supplement on the days you’re not getting in omega 3’s naturally into the diet.
8. DON’T WASTE MONEY ON CREAMS, POTIONS, OR “CELLULITE PILLS.”
That stuff is garbage when it comes to removing cellulite. None of those things can treat the real cause of cellulite (lack of blood flow) and are therefore, a complete waste of your money.
