Homemade remedies to get rid of cellulite
Although as we already all know, almost 90% of all women are experiencing problems due to unsightly cellulite. Unfortunately not all of us can afford to go to expensive spas and very fancy wellness centers equipped with all sorts of gadgets and sophisticated devices approved by the medical world that promise us to help us get rid of cellulite for ever and for always!
Easy to prepare at home remedies for removing cellulite
If you've decided to start fighting your cellulite and your unpleasant stretch marks and want to accelerate the pace at which this is happening I am going to offer you some effective treatments that you can easily do at home.
Cellulite remedies that actually work
So let's see what are the homemade cellulite treatments that are really going to help you in your quest for perfect looking and feeling skin.
1. Coffee and olive oil against Cellulite - Packaged Coffee
We've all heard of the wonders that coffee promises us on the matter of removing cellulite and I'm pretty sure that you've already tried a peeling session or some other type of coffee treatment for cellulite like a cellulite wrap. Caffeine is one of the key ingredients of all cellulite treatments, creams and lotions. To make your own effective cellulite treatment you need a cup of ground coffee and a little olive oil. It's as simple as that to prepare your own cellulite treatment.
Mix the two ingredients until they turn into a sort of paste. The product thus obtained must be spread on the affected areas through a gentle massage. It is extremely important to do a cellulite massage because that really enhances the ingredients' abilities to get you rid of cellulite.
After that, use some clingfilm to wrap the areas to which you've applied the combination of coffee and olive oil so that the elements incorporate better and get activated in a more efficient way, besides of the fact that you are going to prevent making a mess in your whole house!
If you have the opportunity to spend a few minutes in bed it's even better. Cover with a warm towel or some blankets to keep your body at a higher temperature. Try to sit like that for about 30 minutes and then rinse the composition off alternating some lukewarm and cold water.
I'm guessing that you could use this spare time in order to do your nails or apply some moisturizing hair mask, just so that you get more things done at the same time.
2. Spirulina cellulite treatment
The ingredients in this blue-green algae called spirulina help regenerate tissue, improve blood circulation and, what we needed to hear, skin appearance. For all of these reasons, spirulina has to be one of the most effective remedies against cellulite.
Buy some spirulina under the form of capsules, grind them until they reach a powdered form and a dustier texture. Mix the fine powder with some oil or a chilli based body cream. Rub this mixture for a few minutes onto the areas where cellulite has struck.
For a more intense and effective result, let the cream be active for 20 minutes and then rinse off with warm water.
3. Clay body wrap against cellulite
You've probably used clay face masks before and you know how beneficial they actually are. But did you know that you can use clay as a treatment for cellulite? Besides being a cure for cellulite, clay also provides you the added benefit of helping you with weight loss! It is rich in active ingredients that help detoxify the skin and improve its appearance.
Before applying clay on the problem areas with cellulite, it is recommended that you exfoliate your skin (maybe with the coffee grounds mentioned above) to get rid of the dead skin cells.
You can make this clay paste with two clay packets used in cosmetics, the juice from half a lemon, a tablespoon of olive/almond/coconut/jojoba oil.
After you apply the paste on the cellulite struck areas, wrap yourself in cling film and just sit in bed covered as warm as possible, so that the treatment takes action on your cellulite. Wait about an hour or more, if you have the time, then rinse with warm to cold water. After that, apply a cellulite cream and you're done.
