1. Lose Weight if You Need To
First thing’s first: you have definitely got to lose weight if you are overweight or obese. The goal here is to get to a healthy weight, but certainly do not assume that you have to be stick thin. Many people who are very thin do, in fact, also have cellulite. But if you are very overweight or clinically categorized as being obese at this point in time, then you should consider losing some extra pounds.
This is because cellulite is essentially fat, and when you have fat on you, then that can compound the problem. To lose weight, follow steps 2 and 3 below, but try to eat a 1200 calorie diet for women and a 1400 calorie diet for men.
2. Revamp the Way You Eat Food
In addition to losing weight if you need to, anyone and everyone should start this cellulite treatment plan by changing the way that they have always eaten. Many people eat tons of processed and packaged goods each day, and this causes a lot of bodily issues, including cellulite.
Packages foods include those like chips, cookies, pre-made frozen meals, crackers and even some granola bars. Processed foods include those like processed meats, some cheeses, ice creams, cakes and other goodies. Cut these out of your diet! And replace them with healthy options like veggies, fruits, nuts, beans, whole grains, and lean meats (these include fish and white poultry).
3. Start a Daily Exercise Routine
Everyone will also need to start exercising, and there are two types of exercises that you will want to start doing immediately. You can start slow if you want to, but the faster that you start to build up stamina, the most results you will see with your cellulite!
First, you’ll want to include cardiovascular exercise. Cardiovascular exercise includes any type of exercise that gets your heart pumping. You can try swimming, jogging or running, biking or playing sports. You should aim to do cardiovascular exercise about 5 to 6 times each week for 30 minutes each time.
You’ll also want to start strength training to build up muscle in your body. This will help to replace fat, and it will make it difficult for cellulite show up at all. You can build up your muscles with strength training by using your own body weight, for you can use dumbbells or hand weights. Medicine balls, kettle bells and resistance bands can also help.
4. Use a Daily Cream With Alpha Hydroxy Acid
Using a daily cream or serum with alpha hydroxy acid in it will help to tone down the cellulite also. Alpha hydroxy acid breaks down the top layers of skin and smooth them out like an exfoliator. In addition, you will notice genuinely nicer skin where are you used to have cellulite. Use the cream once in the morning and once at night.
5. Start Dry Brushing Twice Per Day
Dry brushing can help a lot as well. Buy a dry brush at your local health food store or on the Internet. Use your dry brush once in the morning and once at night for the best outcome. Make sure you are using small circular motions and applying gentle pressure. You should also try to always move the brush towards your heart.
6. Use a Coffee Grounds Scrub Every Other Day
A coffee grounds scrub can’t help to exfoliate your skin and get rid of dead skin cells that maybe complicating your cellulite. To create the scrub, simply mix coffee grounds with some coconut oil or olive oil and rub it on the skin while you are in the shower or bath.
7. Start Self Massaging or Get Massages
Self massage or getting a massage from a professional can also help to reduce cellulite because it stimulates the fat and skin near where you have cellulite. This actually agitates the skin and fat so that it becomes smoother overtime, and you will no longer have any dimples or lumps.
Other Ways to Hide Cellulite
- Wear Slimming Clothing Items: Slimming clothing can go a long way to reduce the cellulite that you see. While you are doing all of the things above, try to wear leggings and tight fitting jeans if you really want to look thin and cellulite free!
- Get a Tan: Having a tan (weather it is real or from a spray bottle) will definitely help to blend your cellulite and make it less obvious.
- Drink More Water: Finally, drinking water will help to detoxify your body and essentially flush out any of the toxins that you have so that you can go cellulite-free.
Remember to use all of the methods above for reducing cellulite together as opposed to just picking and choosing among them. This comprehensive should put you directly on the path to seeing no more cellulite on your body! Good luck!
