Cellulite is one of the problems that stressed many women these days. It is agreed that the appearance of cellulite is due to problems in the connective tissues and fat in the body. There are several factors causing it, such as hormones, diet, lifestyle and genetics. Women tend to believe that overweight people only suffer it but actually many thin women complain of it as well.
There are several natural remedies to help balance the connective tissue/fat in the body.
1- Dry brushing: there is not any scientific evidence that it works but a lot of women swear by it.
3- Coffee scrub: it reduces cellulite effectively, regular massaging and exfoliation will benefit the skin by stimulating the blood circulation and the caffeine has a tightening effect. Here is a natural way to prepare it at home: 1/4 cup coffee powder, 3 tablespoons sugar or brown sugar, 2-3 Tablespoons of coconut oil. Mix the ingredients to create a soft paste consistency (note that it will harden if cooled). Store in a glass jar.
Massage in to skin for several minutes using firm pressure and wash off with lukewarm water. Use 2-3 times a week. Results should be noticed within a couple of weeks.
4- Omega 3. There are many evidences that claim that consuming enough Omega 3 fatty acids should help reduce cellulite over time.
5- Balance hormones. It is agreed about that hormones do play a huge part in the formation of cellulite (one of the reasons why women get it and men don’t) and thus working towards proper hormone balance can help reduce cellulite even if it doesn’t totally get rid of it.
