The Secret to Reducing Cellulite Naturally and Some Fun DIY Recipes
Cellulite affects a large number of women, even as young as twenty, and it doesn’t spare even the very skinny! It is the result of fat cells that are very large pressing up against the skin, creating a dimpled effect. Up to 80% of women will suffer from it and there isn’t much you can do to prevent it. Men don’t suffer as much from cellulite as women do because they have a thicker top layer of skin and their skin is structured differently. Read on to find out how to reduce the unsightly appearance of cellulite so that you can feel super confident in that bikini!
While there is no cure for cellulite, some treatments have been shown to be effective at reducing the appearance of cellulite. Many people swear by dry brushing, which exfoliates the skin and increases blood flow.
Another popular remedy for cellulite is coffee, not drinking it but scrubbing it into your skin. It works like dry brushing in the way it exfoliates and promotes circulation, plus coffee provides caffeine and antioxidants. This dilates the blood vessels, tightening the skin, as well as reducing water retention. The antioxidants fight any toxins or damaging free radicals in the skin as well as increases collagen production, which firms the skin.
Coffee only works temporarily, so make it a regular part of your routine to keep the cellulite at bay, using it about weekly.
