Is cellulite giving you nightmares? You stand in front of the mirror, and all you see are bumps and dimples on your thighs, abdomen, and buttocks? Nobody wants to see this reflection of themselves. If you are one of those and are on the lookout for methods to get rid of the cellulite from your body, you have landed on the right web page today. Let us show you how you can say goodbye to cellulite!

Cellulite is a condition in which the skin becomes dimpled due to the accumulation of fat cells, proteins, and toxins that have not been eliminated from the body. It is a problem that can affect anyone, including men, women, and children. It can even affect people who have relatively no fat in their bodies.

However, women are affected the most by this. An estimated 85% of women suffer from cellulite. Let us examine the causes of cellulite formation, and then we shall get into the details of different home remedies you can use to get rid of it.

What Causes Cellulite?

Cellulite gives a unique appearance to the skin, like that of the dimpled surface of an orange peel. Poor diet, hormonal changes, age, and genetic predisposition – all of these trigger cellulite formation. There is a common denominator for all these factors – the accumulation of toxins in the body. A staggering 90% of post-adolescent women suffer from this orange peel skin or cottage cheese look. Other contributing factors include smoking, obesity, pregnancy, lack of exercise, not drinking enough water and stress. But, these are not absolutes.

While weight gain can make cellulite more noticeable, the good news is that cellulite is in no way related to obesity. It affects skinny and overweight people alike. The key to cellulite reduction is to flush out the accumulated toxins from the body and prevent its future accumulation. Any step towards an ideal lifestyle can help to avoid and reduce cellulite.

One can get rid of the cellulite naturally by doing exercises, yoga, and by following some home remedies. These tips will not only reduce and prevent cellulite but will also pave the way for a healthy and fit life.

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) involves many disciplines of which acupuncture is definitely a fascinating one. It believes in the theory of activating the body and improving the flow of body fluids by using needles to activate specific points.

Back To TOC

The following tips can help you to prevent cellulite.

Preventive Tips

A. Keep Yourself Hydrated

Keeping your body hydrated will help the skin cells fresh and renewed, plummeting the cellulite. Water also aids in preventing cellulite accumulation. Drink at least eight to 10 glasses of water [1.6 l to 2 l]. Opt for clean, purified water. Include organic fresh veggies and fruits to your diet for added hydration. Drink plenty of water before and after a workout to reduce the toxin buildup. Drink a glass of water before having your morning tea or coffee and carry a bottle of water with yourself wherever you go.

Hydration is crucial for maintaining the overall health. Drink enough water to acquire a smooth texture and healthy glow in your skin.

B. Indulge In An Anti-Cellulite Diet

Diet is not as horrible as it sounds and there are numerous ones out there – Dukan, Paleo, 321 Baby Bulge Gone, GM diet, LCHF [Low Carb High Fat], and what not. Do not fall prey to any extreme diets. They will do no good but are sure to leave you harmed. The ideal way to enjoy a diet is to go in a balanced way. Pack your plate with loads of fruits and vegetables of various colors. Plus, add a lot of ginger, black pepper, long pepper, onions, fennel seeds, lemon, cloves, and cinnamon in your diet. These improve your metabolism, thus ensuring a better blood flow.

C. Consume More Alkaline Forming Foods

Eliminate the toxins from its source – this is the key principle that one needs to follow to get rid of the cellulite. And, this can be done by increasing the amount of foods that trigger the formation of alkaline ash in your body. The ideal sources of such foods are raw veggies and fruits. The alkaline nature of these food items attracts the acidic toxins, aiding in flushing out the latter from your body.
Nevertheless, take baby steps, when it comes to inclusion of fruits and veggies. A sudden increase in alkaline nature may, in fact, cause adverse effects. The toxins, instead of getting flushed out, will be retained within the body via recirculation and resettling. The higher the quantity of raw food intake, higher your weight loss will be. And, as you lose weight, your cellulite levels will look diminished.

D. Eat Healthy

Eat low-fat delights, lean protein, Indian cottage cheese, skimmed milk, and honey. You can opt for fresh fruits and veggies when you crave for a snack. The inclusion of junk in your diet will only increase the toxin levels, which in turn will aggravate cellulite formation. Avoid cellulite by following a healthy diet.

1. Improve The Skin Tone

Adopt a proper skin care routine to make the skin tight and healthy. This would not reduce the cellulite but will go a long way towards reducing its appearance. Take a bath in lukewarm or cold water, instead of hot water. Cool water tightens the skin and makes it look more toned.

F. Chuck Out Your Tight Fitting Clothes

There are countless slimwear and shapewear products available in the market with many of them claiming to have a positive impact on cellulite in a certain period. However, the facts suggest something else! While these body-shapers of the right size might help you, wearing overly fit dresses could have negative impacts on your body. Wear loose clothing to promote the blood flow in the body and make sure to pick the right size for you.

Also, if you are using any shapewear, make sure you do not wear it beyond six hours a day, as there will be some undesirable side-effects shortly.

G. Move Around

Increased physical activity will surely make a difference in the appearance of cellulite. Every extra step you take will help you deal with cellulite. Walking for 30 minutes daily will help to lose weight while mellowing down your cellulite. If you are working in front of the computer, then make sure you walk for 10 minutes for each 60 minutes of sitting. The better the flow of blood is, the more effective your cellulite reduction will be. So, just walk for half an hour more every day and see the difference.

Skip the elevator, use the stairs, and walk to the nearest store, instead of driving. You can also go swimming once or twice a week. Swimming not only burns the fat but also massages the thighs and hips, reducing cellulite. Aerobic activities like running, jogging, and bicycling can also help to reduce cellulite. Include these cellulite-reducing exercises in your daily routine for a firm and fit body.

H. Cut Out On The Salt

Swap your refined salt for Celtic salt or Himalayan crystal salt. Refined salt is extremely acidic and leaches minerals from the body. It is also highly dehydrating, which can cause the accumulation of toxins in the body. Moreover, the excessive sodium present in it causes fluid retention that makes the cellulite more conspicuous. Crystal and Celtic salt are alkaline and come packed with beneficial minerals, giving you a healthy body.

E. Detox Regularly

Colon cleansing is an essential part of the detoxification program. Get a colon cleansing done from a professional colonic to reduce the cellulite. Detoxification eliminates the toxins from the body, reducing cellulite. It not only clears the existing bowel problems but also prevents other intestinal diseases.

1. Chuck Out Sugar

Sugar is one of the leading causes of cellulite. It causes fat accumulation, premature skin aging, and inflammation, triggering the formation of cellulite. Avoid consuming sugary foods like glucose, high fructose, corn syrup, maltose, and/or brown sugar. Ditch all sweeteners such as sucralose or stevia. Artificial sweeteners perpetuate the cravings for sugary and comforting foods. Sugar also increases insulin levels and blocks fat release from muscles during exercise. Thus, avoid consuming sugary foods to minimize the appearance of cellulite.

Replace the sugar-laden foods with berries like blueberries, strawberries, or blackberries. Berries contain a high amount of flavonoids that support the connective tissues in the skin and keep it firm and smooth.

K. Include Essential Fatty Acids In Your Diet

A diet rich in essential fatty acids prevents the fat cells from slackening, thereby reducing the dimpling effect. Essential fatty acids strengthen the connective tissue around the fat cells, helping to reduce cellulite. Fish like salmon, mackerel, sardines, and trout contain high levels of unsaturated omega-3 fatty acids, which can help to reduce body fat. You can also include olive oil, flaxseed oil, and walnut oil to increase the levels of fatty acids in the body.

L. Restrict Using Skin Thinning Creams

Despite the claims that tons of chemical products make to banish cellulite, researchers maintain that there is no cure for cellulite. Avoid using any chemical product that claims to thin the skin and reduce cellulite. This will make the cellulite more obvious than before. Moreover, it will also make the skin’s imperfections more prominent. Nourish your skin with natural oils and creams like coconut oil, olive oil, or an organic moisturizer. Moisturize the skin with products that contain caffeine as an active ingredient. The product should contain at least 5% of caffeine. This will help to improve the skin tone and reduce the appearance of cellulite.

M. Sleep Enough And De-Stress Yourself

Stress may also increase the risk of cellulite. It causes a spike in cortisol, a hormone associated with the development of cellulite. It also slows the production of growth hormones that create healthy skin. Thus, it is critical to be relaxed in your life and keep the stress away. Practice meditation and deep breathing exercises, and make sure you get enough sleep every night. Sleep properly for 6-8 hours a day. A healthy sleeping routine is the solution for a multitude of health and body related issues.

N. Quit Smoking

Smoking is highly toxic and is one of the underlying causes of cellulite. It can have detrimental effects on the elasticity of the skin, thereby worsening cellulite. Smoking can also cause premature wrinkles and sagging. Thus, quit smoking to get a smooth and supple skin.

These tips for cellulite prevention (and reduction) can be your path to achieving a beautiful, healthier skin. Here are some more questions on cellulite answered for you.
