Cellulite spends the sleep of many women. It turns out that you can get rid of it – and with home remedies. How to do it?
Cellulite, or so-called orange peel, is a huge complex for many women. Some, for this reason, avoid, for example, visits to the pool or beach and other places where they would have to show their exposed thighs. It even happens that the complexes take a toll on relationships, as the woman is ashamed of her body and feels unattractive. Fortunately, this can be remedied, you just need to know how.
1. Coffee scrub
Coffee is the beverage that most of us drink in the morning. It’s a great stimulant and improves the mood for many. It can also be used externally. Caffeine dilates blood vessels. Studies show that the use of treatments with ground coffee helps to stimulate the breakdown of fat cells and firm the skin. On top of that, the latter also becomes smoother and tighter, and cellulite is reduced.
A coffee scrub can be made by adding a few tablespoons of ground coffee to 2-3 tablespoons of sugar. Add a little olive oil or coconut oil (enough to make a thick slurry). Apply the mixture to the thighs and buttocks and massage thoroughly in circular motions for a few minutes. Then rinse the whole thing off with cold water. It is worth doing the peeling every few days. After 2-3 months of regular treatments, the first results should be noticeable. Cellulite should significantly decrease and be less noticeable.
2. Proper diet
When fighting cellulite, diet is also key. It is important to limit sugar and fat intake. Therefore, sweets, fast food and fried dishes should be put aside. Fruits and vegetables should dominate the plate. Specialists also recommend drinking freshly squeezed juices and smoothies, which speed up the metabolism. After a few weeks of such a diet, the skin will look much healthier, and cellulite should be much smaller.
3. Cold showers
Few people know that an excellent method for fighting cellulite is cold, even ice-cold showers. Of course, this doesn’t mean that you have to wash in cool water. However, it is worth taking ice-cold showers on the parts of the body that you want to firm up, in this case the thighs and buttocks. Cold water and high pressure improve blood circulation and stimulate fat cells to burn. You can also pour the skin alternately – very hot and very cold water. Later, it’s also a good idea to massage in a firming cream or coconut oil.
Physical activity also promotes the fight against cellulite. In the case of orange peel, it is worth betting on Pilates and yoga. Exercises that rely on micro-movements fantastically stimulate the metabolism, massage the thighs and buttocks and strengthen muscles. These are especially recommended exercises for people with sedentary lifestyles.
There’s no way to beat cellulite without consuming plenty of fluids. There’s a reason why experts recommend drinking at least 1.5 to 2.5 liters of water every day. In turn, sweetened carbonated drinks should be abandoned. It is also inadvisable to drink flavored water from the store, which is actually a huge dose of sugar.
