2 Easy and Effective Ways To Get Rid of Cellulite

No panting, no sweats involved.

Cellulite is the stubborn fat that causes your skin to dimple on thighs and hips. Since it's fat essentially, exercising to melt it is a viable option. However, the beauty Gurus have found some easy and effective(may we add, unusual too!) ways to get rid of cellulite.

1. Dry Brushing

A remedy cannot get simpler than this. There is no scientific study to back up this technique, but a lot of satisfied users who can vouch for it. As the name suggests, one needs to brush the cellulite affected area and let the bristles take care of the rest. The movement of bristles on dry skin helps to remove the toxic build-up and dead skin as well. This process improves blood circulation and lymphatic drainage.

Dry brushing also gives a boost to cell renewal and promotes tighter skin. And the technique helps lymphatic system to release toxins and aids in digestion and kidney function.

Type of Brush to be used: A brush with stiff bristles would be better suited than the one having hard bristles. Also, pick natural bristles over synthetic ones.

2. Coffee Grounds

This morning tonic is slowly making its way into our beauty stash, and that too for good. A simple coffee scrub can do wonders to help you get rid of cellulite because of its magical properties. The caffeine and antioxidants rich coffee helps to release toxins which impacts cellulite and makes skin healthy. Also, the skin becomes smoother and glows after using this scrub regularly.

The reason why it works is that the caffeine dilates blood vessels which results in a tightened and toned tissue. And then the massage using coarse coffee grounds increases the circulation and makes the skin look plum, thereby making the dimpling skin look smoother.

Scrub recipe:

  • One-fourth cup of coffee grounds
  • Two tablespoons of sugar
  • Coconut oil

Mix these three ingredients to form a thick paste. Apply this paste onto the affected area and massage by applying firm pressure. Wash it off using lukewarm water. This scrub should be used twice a week.

As it takes time to get rid of cellulite completely, we suggest you flaunt it like a boss in the meantime.
