There’s no point beating around the bush. Cellulite can be a frustrating problem to deal with. Whether it’s on your butt, thighs, stomach, or arms, the dimpled lumpy skin is a far cry from the firm and smooth skin that we all wish we had.
Before we can get rid of it, we first need to know what cellulite actually is. Cellulite is subcutaneous fat that is pushing up against the skin and creating all those lumps. You’ll find it in areas of the body where there is a lot of subcutaneous fat, like the thighs and butt. And while it’s easy to point fingers at fat for those unsightly dimples, hormones are also partly to blame for the appearance of cellulite.
This means, that there’s really no clear cut solution to completely get rid of cellulite. The best you can do is minimize its appearance or try to prevent it from appearing in other parts of your body. Here are 5 simple ways to help you deal with your cellulite problem.
Rub coffee grounds on the affected areas
Coffee grounds contain caffeine, which stimulates lipolysis, or the process of breaking down fat. Rubbing it on affected areas may not get rid of it completely, but it can improve the skin’s overall appearance over time.
Use a buffing mitt daily
Rubbing coffee grounds can get quite messy so if you prefer to keep things simple, you can use a buffing mitt instead. The mitt improves blood circulation and buffs away dead skin cells, so you get healthier skin in an instant.
Watch what you eat
The more you weigh, the more your fat cells will grow and show themselves to the world. Although it’s not exactly a cure, keeping a healthy balanced diet with plenty of water will help keep cellulite at bay.
Keep an exercise routine
If you want to minimize cellulite, you need to shrink those fat cells. And the only way to do that is by sticking to an exercise routine.
Get a massage regularly
Massaging skin stimulates the lymph flow and helps the blood circulate better around the massaged area. It also promotes fluid drainage from areas with cellulite, making it less visible to the naked eye.
