At home cellulite treatment we all need to know- 9 Natural Remedies
Cellulite appears to be a problem that many women are dealing with these days. I'm guessing that cellulite remedies are still a problem we haven't solved based on the number of times they appear in women's magazines, websites, and blogs.
The dimpled appearance of cellulite is caused by problems/imbalances in the connective tissue and fat in a person's body, according to most sources, but there are many theories about what causes this imbalance. Hormones, diet, lifestyle, and genetics all appear to play a role, but they are not absolutes. While those who are overweight are more likely to develop cellulite, many thin women also experience it. So what natural at home cellulite treatment should you use? Read on.
What Is the Best Way to Get Rid of Cellulite? (Naturally)
Natural remedies that I've tried or that trusted sources have recommended are listed below. They should all help to balance the body's connective tissue/fat and address the various causes. In any case, these things are beneficial for other reasons as well, so give them a shot!
1. Using a Dry Brush
There is a lot of anecdotal support for this cure, even though there is no scientific evidence that it works. In either case, it feels amazing and promotes the body's blood and lymph flow. Here are a few details:
How often: Dry skin brushing is an efficient way to open up your pores. This is something you can — and should — do on a daily basis, if not twice. Because your skin should be dry before you turn on the water, the best time is in the shower. Please remember not to get the brush wet.
Brushing should only be done in the direction of the heart. Avoid back and forth, scraping, and circular motions by using long sweeps. Begin from your feet and work your way up both sides of your legs, then make your way up your arms to your chest. Direct the brush counterclockwise while lying down on your stomach. Also, don't scrub too hard: the skin should be stimulated and energised, not irritated or red.
Brush type: Natural, not synthetic, and ideally vegetable-derived bristles are preferred. The bristles themselves should be firm but not excessively so. If necessary, look for one with an attachable handle for hard-to-reach areas.
Body brushing stimulates tighter skin, cell renewal, and blood flow in addition to sloughing away dry skin on places like knees, elbows, and ankles. This also assists digestion and kidney function by assisting the lymphatic system in the removal of toxins. You'll also notice that your skin is glowing and smooth.
2. Gelatin Consumption
Gelatin is mostly made up of the amino acids glycine and proline, which many people don't get enough of because they're found in animal bones, fibrous tissues, and organs, and we don't eat these components as much as we used to. These amino acids are required not just for healthy skin, hair, and nails, but also for good immunological function and weight management!
The multiple health benefits of gelatin, according to several sources (which I go over in this piece), include:
Skin, hair, and nail growth are all aided by this supplement.
It is beneficial to the joints and can aid in joint rehabilitation.
Can aid in the tightening of loose skin (such as the kind that develops after having four children in five years...)
Because it naturally binds to water, it aids digestion by allowing food to pass more readily through the digestive tract.
It's supposed to aid in cellulite reduction.
Collagen is a great source of dietary collagen (side note: collagen is too big to be absorbed by the skin, therefore skin treatments are pointless... ingest it and use coconut oil as a lotion!)
Although not a very high-quality source of protein, its specific amino acids can aid muscle growth.
According to one idea, the decrease in gelatin-containing items in our diets has resulted in an increase in cellulite because we lack the necessary building blocks for healthy connective tissue. In any case, it's another cure worth trying for a variety of reasons.
A natural bristle semi-firm brush with a handle appears to be the best option, and I keep mine in the shower to use every day shortly before showering.
3. Massage of the Myofascial Tissues
Cellulite is thought to occur in the superficial fascia, a connective tissue layer underneath the skin that contains fat cells. Adhesions (scar tissue) in the fascia can occur as a result of inactivity, injuries, and incorrect exercise, contributing to the bunched-up or rippling appearance of the skin. The superficial fascia not only becomes more fibrous, thicker, and coarse, and less flexible, but it can also stick to underlying structures that it normally glides over.
Some therapists are able to give a type of massage known as myofascial massage or myofascial release, which smoothes this layer of connective tissue and may also help with muscle and joint disorders linked to fascia imbalances.
If you don't have access to a regular massage, it appears that utilising a deep tissue foam roller on a regular basis can be very beneficial.
4. Scrub with coffee
Coffee scrubs can also help with cellulite reduction. The massage and exfoliation stimulate blood and lymph movement, while the caffeine in the coffee tightens the skin. Coffee washes and wraps have been reported to help reduce cellulite and loose skin on Pinterest, and like the other cures, it's worth a shot. At the very least, coffee smells wonderful, and this scrub will exfoliate your skin:
You'll need the following items:
a quarter cup of coffee grinds
3 tablespoons sugar (brown sugar)
2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
What you should do is:
To make a paste-like consistency, combine all of the ingredients in a mixing bowl (note that it will harden if cooled if you are using unrefined coconut oil). Keep it in a glass container.
How to Use:
Massage for several minutes into skin with strong pressure, then wash as usual. Use a couple of times a week. Within a few weeks, you should see some results.
Kettlebells are one of my favourite ways to exercise, and they're particularly beneficial to the hips, thighs, buttocks, and stomach (don't believe me? Do one kettlebell workout and report back to us the next day on how your thighs feel.)
Kettlebells are one of the most effective ways to develop muscle and burn fat, and increasing blood flow to these areas can help reduce cellulite (both which help minimise the appearance of cellulite). They are inexpensive and take up little storage space. You must, however, ensure that no children are around while you use them!
6. Omega-3 fatty acids
Another idea proposes that eating the improper type of fats causes an imbalance in the fatty acids required by the body for healthy skin and tissue. Consuming enough omega-3 fatty acids and fat-soluble vitamins has been shown to help minimise cellulite over time. In any case, omega-3s and fat-soluble vitamins are vital for a variety of other bodily functions, so it's worth a shot!
7. Baths for Detoxification
Although I enjoy detox baths because they are soothing, another theory suggests that toxin build-up in the skin and fat tissues causes cellulite. Although there is no scientific proof to support the toxin claim, detox baths can be calming and beneficial to the skin in other ways, so they are worth a try!
8. Moisturize your skin naturally
Detox baths may help remove toxins that cause skin problems (and possibly cellulite), but repeatedly reintroducing toxins to the skin in the form of chemical-laden cosmetic products is unlikely to help much! If you haven't done so before, try using natural skincare and moisturising products. Coconut oil can be used as an all-purpose moisturiser.
9. Hormone Balance
Many sources seem to agree that hormones play a big role in cellulite production (one of the reasons why women develop it and males don't) and that achieving optimal hormone balance can help minimise cellulite. Even if it doesn't get rid of cellulite, regulating hormones has so many other benefits that it's well worth the effort!
