Easy Ways to Get Rid of Cellulite Naturally
Cellulite is a bit of a taboo subject, and understandably so. Women’s bodies are often scrutinised using derogatory phrases such as “cottage cheese thighs” and “hail damage”. Not to mention, there are countless celebrity gossip magazines that take unattractive photos of celebrities during their vacation on the beach with horrid headlines about their unattractive cellulite. No wonder so many celebrities end up resorting to plastic surgery techniques to try to adapt to society’s definition of beauty.
If you’re gearing up for spring and trying on some new bathing suits at the shop, you may have had that shocking moment when you notice some cellulite on your bottom or thighs. Your friends might try to soothe you by letting you know that, “It’s just the lighting in those dressing rooms!”, but unfortunately, the truth is that you have cellulite. In fact, most women over the age of puberty have cellulite, and it’s really nothing to be ashamed of.
The first step here is to embrace your body, and really practice the act of unconditional self-love. Embrace the fact that your body is carrying you unconditionally throughout life. Your body is a vessel that must endure the test of time and the struggles of life. Whether you’ve had a baby, or two, or three, bear in mind that your body is a warrior, and has brought you through so much.
With that being said, it never hurts to maintain your body, and take good care of that vessel that has seen you through so much. Everyone wants to look their best, but don’t resort to plastic surgery or other dangerous techniques. There are ways to reduce cellulite naturally, which is better for your body, mind and spirit. Below, we’ve outlined our top 5 tips for reducing cellulite naturally. Please let us know in the comments if you know of any other natural remedies for cellulite.
Top 5 Tips for Reducing Cellulite Naturally
1. Make your own coffee scrub
Coffee is not only fun to drink, but also an amazing natural way to reduce the appearance of cellulite. Coffee contains caffeine (as well we know all too well), and caffeine is actually one of the main ingredients in expensive anti-cellulite creams. You can easily make your own coffee scrub by combining coffee grounds, salt, sugar, and oil. Then, just use the scrub in the shower or bath like you would with any other scrub, and rinse. Be sure to wash after scrubbing to cleanse your skin, and use a natural soap like our delicious, and affordable, French Milled Soap.
2. Eat healthy unprocessed foods
Eating healthy is another way to reduce your cellulite. Processed foods like meats, crackers and biscuits only add to the toxins in our bodies. Instead, try eating non-processed foods including a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables. You’ll notice a difference in your skin’s texture, and appearance after only a few weeks of healthy eating.
3. Moisturise your skin naturally
Dry skin can also contribute to the appearance of cellulite. Therefore, be sure to moisturise every day using a natural moisturiser. Virgin organic coconut oil is a great product to use on your body before bed, as it will lock in the moisture in your skin, and you’ll wake up smelling like the beach.
You’ll also want to be sure that your soaps aren’t stripping the moisture from your skin. Conventional soaps that you buy at the supermarket are often made from harmful chemicals and harsh ingredients, whereas our all-natural French-milled soaps are made from fresh, gentle ingredients. You could try our French-Milled Shea Butter soap for heavenly soft skin after showering.
4. Stay hydrated
Are you drinking at least 8 glasses of water a day? Dehydrated skin also contributes to the appearance of cellulite. If you find that you forget to drink water, simply set an alarm on your phone for every 1.5 hours. When the alarm goes off, simply drink a 350ml glass of water, and you’ll stay refreshed and alert. You’ll be surprised how gorgeous your skin will look after only a few days of consistent hydration.
5. Exercise regularly
If you’re not squatting, get squatting! And I’m not talking about living rent-free in an abandoned house. Thigh and bum exercises are a quick and relatively easy way to get rid of that cellulite. Try doing 20 squats a day and increasing the amount by 10 each week. You’ll have a beach body that you can be proud of in no time!
