Most women begin to take active measures against cellulite when summer days are approaching. But if you want to get rid of skin that resembles orange peel, you must take care for your body throughout the year.
Today there are various treatments and products that promise tight and smooth skin. Some of them give good results, others are just a marketing gimmick. However, in order to check their effectiveness, you need to do more or less investment into them.
If you are not ready to spend a lot of money on cosmetic products and treatments that will tighten your skin, then you can try some homemade treatments that often can be equally effective against cellulite as the expensive treatments that are available.
*** COFFE SCRUB***
Yes, coffee may help you get rid of cellulite, and not if you consume it, but if you use it as a scrub. Caffeine which is found in coffee is the active ingredient of many anti-cellulite creams. The simplest way to use the power of caffeine from the coffee is to use real coarsely grounded coffee.
10 minutes option:
Take about half a cup of coffee and go in the shower. Add a little bit of hot water to the coffee until it looks like a paste. It is best to shower with warm water because it will help the caffeine to penetrate deeper into the skin. Take some coffee mixture in your hands and using a circular motion, massage the affected areas (buttocks, thighs). Massage for about 5 minutes, then rinse it. The best effect is achieved if the coffee is rinsed with cold water. The cold water will shrink your pores and will make your skin tighter.
40 minutes option:
Take half a cup of coffee, mix it with hot water until it looks like a paste, then add 2 teaspoons of olive oil or rosemary oil. Put old newspapers on the floor to protect it and using a circular motion rub the mixture into the skin in places where you have cellulite. Then with a plastic kitchen wrap, wrap the areas on which you applied the mixture. Sit down and relax. Within 30 minutes while the caffeine is doing its job, you can listen to music, read a few pages from a book or see a favorite episode from some series. It is proven that relaxation helps against cellulite. Finally, wash the coffee mixture with warm or cold water. After this coffee treatment, you will immediately notice that your skin is smoother and softer, and over time you will notice that the cellulite is reduced.
! Important: Clean your shower as soon as you can, because coffee can darken it.
*** DRY BRUSHING ***
Brushing your skin is an effective and simple way to reduce cellulite. With brushing you improve your circulation, and you also remove dead skin cells from the upper layer of the skin. As a result you will get softer and smoother skin, and cellulite will start to decrease. Get a body brush with soft hairs and start to brush the skin while it is dry. It is best to do this before showering. Start from the feet and go up to the thighs and buttocks. Do not use strong pressure.
*** LEMON JUICE ***
Lemon juice helps in the process of melting the cellulite. In one cup put the juice of one lemon and to the rest add lukewarm water. If you have an intolerance to sourness, add a teaspoon of honey. Drink the prepared lemon juice 2-3 times daily. Consumption of lemon juice by itself will not help you get rid of cellulite, but in combination with massage, brushing and other methods it gives excellent results.
*** CIDER VINEGAR ***
It is proven that cider vinegar can help to get rid of cellulite: Orally. In one cup of water add 2 teaspoons cider vinegar (preferably vinegar from wild apples). If desired you can sweeten it with a little honey. Consume this liquid once a day. Locally. Mix apple cider vinegar and olive oil in a ratio of 3:1 (Example: 3 tablespoons of cider vinegar and 1 tablespoon olive oil). Massage with the mixture 7-10 minutes a day.
