Cellulite home remedies are a more affordable way to lessen the look of orange peel-like skin on your thighs and buttocks.
To find out whether you have cellulite, do this simple test: Press the skin of your thigh together, and look for “ripples” on your skin (much like an orange peel). Do you see them? These are telltale signs of cellulite – fatty deposits hidden under our skin.
What are the cellulite home remedies that may help in improving the texture of our beloved thighs? We need to move more and eat less carbo-saturated foods, in order to speed up metabolism and burn fat. Check out our 10 cellulite home remedies list:
Seaweed body wrap. This can get tricky since it is totally not relaxing to do this on your own! You'll need to ask a close friend to assist you with this. There is the seaweed mixture to prepare ahead of time, the wrapping itself, which is the most tedious part, preparing the warm bed. If you've got an entire day to relax, the seaweed body wrap procedure will just fit in.
Cellulite cream. One of the easiest things to do. Just rub the cellulite cream on daily for as long as a month to see the smooth effect. Not all creams provide excellent results. Creams containing algae or seaweed extract, green tea extract and caffeine have shown promising and incredible potential.
Cellulite soap. Again, like the cellulite creams, the seaweed's nutrients and minerals enter through the skin.
Exercise. There are specific exercises targeted at the cellulite-prone areas of the body such as the thighs and buttocks. Exercising regularly helps at firming up the muscles in this area making the unwanted cellulite disappear.
According to Dr. Lionel Bissoon of Cellulite Cure, choose your undies well! If you're wearing tight elastic in your panties, it impedes with blood circulation. Go for comfy panties when you sleep at night. this is one of the easiest cellulite home remedies to do!
Improve diet by eating more vegetables and fruit. Understandably, we do suggest you add more seaweed as these give our bodies a lot of nutrients and helps in detoxing your body. Hopefully, when we say eat more fruits and veggies, you're also staying away from junk food and have stopped with your regular soda fix.
Sea vegetables or seaweeds have the most naturally occurring antioxidants than any other food in the planet! They have high concentrations of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and enzymes that help increase the body’s fat burning ability.
Here’s how the super nutrients in ocean vegetables work: the detoxifying qualities of sea plant algin, stimulate drainage of fat cells and discourage cellulite build-up. Ocean vegetables help your skin tissue and fat cells to absorb minerals. The minerals act like electrolytes to break the chemical bond that seals the fat cells. The fat cells open temporarily, to allow trapped wastes or toxins to “escape” to the lymph system and be eliminated by the kidneys and the bladder.
Massage. Alcohol and smoking provides you with high levels of toxins. It is best to stay clear of these habits if you want to get the cellulite off you. Or, if you're having a hard time on clearing with habits, try some massage! Go for a good half hour massage on your legs to improve the circulation. Hey, even five minutes of massage daily will help in smoothening out the cellulite ridges.
Cellulite dry brushing is similar to massaging but in this case, there is no massage oil and you use a brush to stimulate the blood vessels to improve circulation. use long strokes and start from the feet, working your way up to the thighs and buttocks.
Keep your body hydrated by drinking water and other healthy drinks. Some juices may contain lots of sugar so please be aware of this. Tea (like bladderwrack tea) helps in cleansing the body and helps reduce cellulite.
Seaweed bath. Including a seaweed bath weekly helps with improving your blood circulation and detoxing that these assist in helping in smoothening out the skin where cellulite is happy to congregate.
So, go ahead and pick which cellulite home remedies you'd like to try.
