I hate cellulite even more than I hate gray hair, and you all know how much I dislike those silver strands of hair I find. Other than wearing jeans all year long to cover it up, I’ve been searching for tips to reduce cellulite to make it less obvious.

Tips to Reduce Cellulite
Cellulite is fat that is under the skin that causes your hips and thighs to have a dimpled appearance. It’s most commonly found on women. I started noticing mine after the birth of my first child. Research has shown that there is a connection between hormones and cellulite.
While I haven’t found a way to make it disappear entirely, you can use these tips to reduce cellulite to make it less noticeable.
- Use a coffee scrub on your skin in the shower. The exfoliation caused by the scrub stimulates blood flow and caffeine has a tightening effect on your skin.
- Get healthy. Cellulite is found more frequently in people who smoke, have sedentary lifestyles and do not exercise.
- Eat a healthy balanced diet. While it won’t eliminate the cellulite, it will help you lose fat that will make cellulite less noticeable.
- Wear thongs or boy shorts. Some evidence shows that tight elastic around your hips and thighs can cause the appearance of cellulite.
- Drink lots of water. Staying hydrated can improve your skins’ appearance overall.
- Skin brushing or massage may help. Improving the circulation in the area you have cellulite may contribute to reducing the appearance.
- Eat foods with antioxidants. Antioxidants help fight free radicals that cause damage to skin cells.
- Omega-3 Fats – Substitute less healthy fats with Omega-3 fats like those found in flaxseed oil. Omega-3 fats help improve circulation that can help lessen the appearance of cellulite.
Cellulite may not be something you can ever get rid of entirely, but by following these tips, you should see an improvement in how obvious it is. Why not try this DIY cellulite massage soap and learn how it can help.
