9 tips Natural Remedies for Cellulite

Cellulite seems to be one of those problems that plagues many women these days. Based on the number of times remedies for cellulite appear in women’s magazines and websites, I’m guessing that this is also a problem we still haven’t solved.

Most sources agree that the dimpled appearance of cellulite occurs due to problems/imbalance in the connective tissue and fat in a person’s body but there are many theories about what may cause this imbalance. It seems that hormones, diet, lifestyle and genetics all play a role but are not absolutes.  While those who are overweight tend to have a higher chance of getting cellulite, many thin women complain of it as well.

Below are natural remedies I’ve either tried myself or had trusted sources recommend. They should all help balance the connective tissue/fat in the body and address the many possible causes. Either way, these things are beneficial for other reasons too so they are worth a try!
1. Dry Brushing

This is one remedy that there may not be any scientific evidence that it works but that there is a lot of anecdotal support for. Either way, it feels great and helps stimulate blood and lymph flow in the body. Here are some specifics from this article:

“How often: Dry skin brushing effectively opens up the pores on your skin. This is something you can — and should — be doing daily, even twice a day. Your skin should be dry, so the ideal time is in the shower before you turn on the water. Just a reminder, don’t get the brush wet.

Direction: You should only brush towards the heart. Making long sweeps, avoid back and forth, scrubbing and circular motions. Start at your feet, moving up the legs on both sides, then work from the arms toward your chest. On your stomach, direct the brush counterclockwise. And, don’t brush too hard: Skin should be stimulated and invigorated but not irritated or red.

Type of brush: The bristles should be natural, not synthetic, and preferably vegetable-derived. The bristles themselves should be somewhat stiff, though not too hard. Look for one that has an attachable handle for hard-to-reach spots, if necessary.

Benefits: In addition to sloughing away dry skin on areas like knees, elbows and ankles, body brushing promotes tighter skin, cell renewal and blood flow. This also helps the lymphatic system release toxins and aids in digestion and kidney function. You’ll also notice a glowy, smooth complexion. We love it because it’s one of the easiest, cheapest and most effective things we can do for promoting healthy skin.”

It seems that a natural bristle semi-firm brush with a handle (like this one) is best and I keep mine in the shower to use daily right before showering. Here is a tutorial video that explains the specifics:

2. Consuming Gelatin

According to Nourishing Traditions and much of the information I’ve read from the Weston A. Price foundation, there are various health benefits to Gelatin, including:

    Gelatin supports skin, hair and nail growth
    It is good  for joints and can help joint recovery
    Can help tighten loose skin (like the kind you get after having four babies in five years…)
    Can improve digestion since it naturally binds to water and helps food move more easily though the digestive track
    Rumored to help improve cellulite
    Great source of dietary collagen (side note: collagen is too large to be absorbed by the skin, so those skin creams are pretty useless… get it internally and use coconut oil for lotion!)
    Source of protein (though not a spectacular one) but its specific amino acids can help build muscle.

Gelatin is largely composed of the amino acids glycine and proline, which many people don’t consume in adequate amounts as they are found in the bones, fibrous tissues and organs of animals and as a population, we don’t consume these parts as much anymore. These amino acids are needed not only for proper skin, hair and nail growth, but for optimal immune function and weight regulation!

One theory is that the decline of gelatin containing foods in our diets has led to an increase in cellulite as we don’t have the needed building blocks for healthy connective tissue. Either way, it is another remedy that is good for other reasons and worth a try.

Here are 12 ways I use Gelatin.
3. Myofascial Massage

One theory is that: “Cellulite forms in the superficial fascia, a layer of connective tissue below the skin that contains fat cells. Superficial fascia is fibrous and due to inactivity, injuries, and improper exercise, adhesions (scar tissue) in the fascia can form contributing to the bunched-up or rippled look of the skin. Not only does the superficial fascia become more fibrous, thickened and coarse, less flexible, but it can also adhere to underlying structures that it normally slides over.”

Some therapists are able to perform a type of massage called myofascial massage or myofascial release, which smoothes this layer of connective tissue and can apparently also help with some types of muscle and joint problems that are related to imbalances in the fascia.

For those of us who don’t have access to regular massage, it seems that using a deep tissue foam roller (like this one) regularly can greatly help as well.
4. Coffee Scrub

Coffee scrubs can be beneficial in reducing cellulite as well. The massage and exfoliation benefits skin by stimulating blood/lymph flow and the caffeine in the coffee has a tightening effect. Pinterest is speckled with accounts of coffee scrubs and wraps working for reducing cellulite and loose skin, and like the other remedies, it is at least worth a try. If nothing else, coffee smells great and this scrub will exfoliate skin:

You will need:

    1/4 cup coffee grounds
    3 tablespoons sugar or brown sugar
    2-3 Tablespoons of melted coconut oil

What to do:

Combine the ingredients to create a paste-like consistency (note that it will harden if cooled if you are using unrefined coconut oil). Store in a glass jar.

To Use:

Massage in to skin for several minutes using firm pressure and wash as usual. Use 2-3 times a week. Results should be visible within a couple of weeks.
5. Kettlebells

Kettlebells are one of my favorite ways to workout and they are especially good for the hips/thighs/buttocks/stomach areas (don’t believe me? do one kettlebell workout and let me know how your thighs feel the next day!)

Increasing blood flow to these areas can help remove cellulite and kettlebells are one of the most effective ways to build muscle and burn fat (both which help minimize the appearance of cellulite)
6. Omega-3s

Another theory is that consumption of the wrong kinds of fats leads to an imbalance of the fatty acids that the body needs for smooth skin and tissue. There is some evidence that consuming enough Omega-3 fatty acids and fat soluble vitamins will help reduce cellulite over time. Either way, Omega-3s and fat soluble vitamins are important for many other functions in the body, so it won’t hurt to try it!

Personally, I take fermented cod liver oil daily for skin health (and for many other reasons).
7. Detox Baths

I love detox baths because they are relaxing, but yet another theory proclaims that toxin build-up in skin and fat tissues lead to cellulite. I couldn’t find any scientific evidence to back the toxin claim, but detox baths can be relaxing and great for the skin in other ways, so they are worth a try!

Here are three of my favorite detox bath recipes.
8. Moisturize Naturally

Just as detox baths may help remove toxins that can lead to skin problems (and maybe cellulite), constantly adding toxins back to the skin in the form of chemical-laden beauty products probably doesn’t help much! If you haven’t already, try using natural options for skin care and moisturizing. Simple coconut oil will work as an all-purpose moisturizer, but if you want to get a little more sophisticated, these are a few of my favorite recipes:

    Perfect Silk Lotion Bars
    3-Ingredient Lotion Bars
    Homemade Luxurious Lotion

9. Balance Hormones

It seems that many sources agree that hormones play a large part in cellulite formation (one reason that women typically get it and men don’t) and that working toward proper hormone balance can help reduce cellulite. Even if it doesn’t get rid of cellulite, balancing hormones helps in so many other ways that it is worth working on!

What Causes Cellulite

Cellulite plagues many, many women all over the world. Men can also develop cellulite, but it is more common in women. There is no cure for cellulite and anyone can develop it, whether they are skinny or fat. What causes cellulite has been a question in our minds for years, and it has been found that cellulite is made up of little pockets of fat deposited just under the skin. It generally occurs around the thighs, buttocks and hips and creates a bumpy surface on the skin. Everyone has fat layers under the surface of their skin and collagen fibers that connect the fat to the skin will begin to stretch causing little fat cells to pop out creating the "cottage cheese" look.

Some people think that cellulite is an inherited trait, since it does not discriminate between fat or skinny people. Not eating the proper foods can also contribute to what causes cellulite. Having a slow metabolism and not drinking enough water is also thought to be a cause. Losing weight, body wraps and body firming creams are just a few of the products that are being advertised to cure cellulite. Unfortunately, because of what causes cellulite, there is no long term solution to this very unattractive problem. Thousands of dollars are spent every year to eliminate cellulite, but it has been clinically proven that once you have cellulite, not even surgery will make it go away forever.

Preventative Measures

Because there is no effective way to determine what causes cellulite, there is no way to cure it. The only thing anyone can do is to take preventative measures to keep cellulite from ever occurring in the first place. You can start a preventative program by eating a healthy diet rich in fiber that includes lots of fruits and vegetables. Always drink plenty of water to stay hydrated, because dehydrated skin is a prime candidate for cellulite. Regular exercise will help keep your muscles toned so as not to allow the fat deposits to build up in the tissue. Try not to have your weight fluctuate too much. Fad dieting is a major factor in what causes cellulite, because all of the gaining and losing weight will cause the skin to stretch and break down allowing the fat cells to form. And last, but certainly not least, avoid smoking at all costs! It is the worst possible thing you can do for the health of your skin. Smoking adds the harmful toxins to your body that contributes to the formation of cellulite and makes it exceptionally hard to treat because you are constantly adding fuel to the fire.

The Natural Ways to Get Rid of Cellulite for Good

Cellulite is what causes those unsightly dimples that can be seen on most adult's thighs, buttocks and pelvic area. Even slender individuals might have cellulite, since the weight of the person is not the basis for cellulite, but the amount of superficial fat in the person's body. There are many solutions to cellulite appearance; many
of these solutions are medication or lotions that are synthetically manufactured by many companies to meet the demands of the clamoring public for an effective cellulite solution.

Cellulite Creams and Anti-Cellulite Lotions

WARNING: This article is by no means an endorsement of any specific cellulite cream or anti-cellulite lotion listed below. Nor is it an indication or hint that any cellulite cream or lotion will actually get rid of your cellulite. Because they can’t and won’t.
I have a really good feeling you are going to deeply appreciate today’s article – so let’s get right into it…
Bizarre Ingredients and Twisted Claims

If you were to analyze all these cellulite products individually – you would find a bizarre array of ingredients ranging from horse-chestnut to dimethylaminoethanol.
You would also see an assortment of claims ranging from “removes waste and toxins in the skin” to “speeds lipolysis of fats stores and tones skin as result”.
So here they are – in no specific order:

The Top Selling Cellulite Creams and Anti-Cellulite Lotions

1 – Revitol Cellulite Cream
2 – Bliss Fat Girl Sleep
3 – Clarins High Definition Body Lift
4 – Bliss Fat Girl Slim
5 – L’Occitane Almond Delightful Shape
6 – Cellex-C Body Smoothing Lotion
7 – Estée Lauder’s Body Performance Slim Shape + Anti-Cellulite/Anti-Fluid
8 – Nivea Good-bye Cellulite 30-Day Body Beauty Program
9 – Murad Firm and Tone Serum
10 – Tarte celluFIGHT

18 – BioLabs Anti-Cellulite Formula
19 – Dermitage Anti-Cellulite System
20 – Cellulean
21 – Adonia Leg Tone
22 – Dermology Cellulite Solution

Why So Many Cellulite Creams and Anti-Cellulite Lotions?

Yes – that’s a long list and there are also many, many more I didn’t list. …….BUT – Why are there so many?

Here’s the reason: Since none of them work – women keep trying the next one, and the next one, and the next one… All out of desperation – thinking “one of them has to work for me…”
Here is a quote pulled from an ABC News feature on cellulite treatments:
Top Professor/Doctor of Plastic Surgery Speaks The Truth

“Women who believe that they can eliminate cellulite through creams are likely to be disappointed. So-called cellulite is the natural anatomic characteristic of many women’s thighs and buttocks,” (especially women who have let their muscle structure become atrophied and saggy) Brody said.

“It is unrelated to weight gain or body-fat loss, or the skin. There is absolutely no surgical or medical solution to women’s dislike of this bumpy and dimpled appearance except for the psychological self-deception of wanting to believe the ads and deceiving claims.” said Dr. Garry S. Brody, a professor of plastic surgery at the University of Southern California.

Studies “Quietly” Involve Exercise/Fitness During Cellulite Cream Tests

Now, here is the sneakiest move of them all (besides the fake before and after photos) – some companies will sponsor studies where the users of the product are also “prescribed a healthy eating plan and an exercise routine to follow during the study period” … and when these women see any kind of improvements at the end of the study, the company claims the changes came from the product.
Yes – Crazy, but true.
What this all points to is certain exercises can work to get rid of the appearance of cellulite (the bumps and dimples of the skin). But – what most women, even medical and fitness professionals, don’t know is this…
There are exercises and movements which are specifically targeted at reversing the muscular atrophy, saggy-ness and mushiness in the lower-body trouble spots and problem areas of the female body.
The Better Targeted the Exercise–The Better the Cellulite Reduction Results
When those exercises cause the muscles under the dimpled and bumpy skin to get lifted, sculpted, firmly toned, strengthened and healthy – they push outward against the loose and bumpy skin – making smooth, tight and sexy.
This CANNOT be achieved with any cellulite cream or anti-cellulite lotion.
It’s scientifically and physiologically impossible.
So if you have finally come to a point of realization that the only thing which will work for you are the right muscle stimulating movements – then now is the time for you to start.

Body Wraps Make Cellulite Worse
NONE Get Rid of Cellulite: Herbal, Cloth and Plastic Body Wraps

There’s no question, some of these can be beneficial. For example, the herbal/sea-weed body wrap can be great for skin care and skin feel.

But none of these have the ability to get rid of the appearance of cellulite. Furthermore, they can be extremely dangerous and they can make cellulite look even worse.

Here’s an expose which was featured on ABC-News.

Wrapped in Big Promises

Body Wraps Come With Many Strings Attached

NEW YORK, July 26th — Body wrap spas offer the allure of shedding inches off your waistline and are an increasingly popular beauty procedure. But critics say the only thing you’re guaranteed to lose is money.

Consumer correspondent Greg Hunter found the mummy-like procedure might not live up to its promises. Furthermore, the Food and Drug Administration Web site says body wraps can be dangerous.

One spa that offers the body wraps, Suddenly Slender Body Wraps, boasts that body wrappers can get a trimmer body by getting it wrapped with bandages soaked in minerals. Its ads guarantee that body-wrapped patrons will lose 6 to 20 inches from various body measurements in their first one-hour wrap.
“It’s not uncommon to take someone down a dress size or two in two weeks,” said Victoria Morton, who founded Suddenly Slender and says she has 1,300 franchises worldwide. But experts say the wraps can cause severe dehydration and circulatory problems.
“It’s all pseudoscientific gobbledygook,” said Dr. Victor Herbert, a doctor at Mt. Sinai Veterans Research Center who is also on the board of Quackwatch, an organization that debunks false medical claims. He says any weight loss that results from getting a body wrap is temporary, because it is water loss.
Doctor Claims Wraps Dangerously Dehydrate
“Be 6 to 20 inches slimmer today by dehydrating yourself? Sure,” Herbert said. “And you can also kill yourself … because you can throw somebody into what we call hypovolemic shock. That’s low blood volume shock by dehydrating you.”
But Morton insists the wraps do not just remove water.
“It’s the waste! The stuff that builds up in the body and makes us old and makes us tired and quite frankly, makes us sick,” she said.
One of Morton’s operations came under legal scrutiny several years ago. In 1998, the Texas Attorney General’s office said that one of Morton’s Texas franchises made false and misleading representations. Morton agreed not to make unsubstantiated medical claims, and paid a $35,000 fine to the state of Texas, without admitting any wrongdoing. (This happens frequently still. Just look at your local advertisements for these services. The problem is so widespread it is simply impossible for governing agencies to control the sheer volume of fraudulent advertising.)
Ann Schmid, a Good Morning America intern, and Cheri Knoy, a tourist from Plano, Texas, volunteered to test the wraps for Good Morning America’s investigation.
At her New York City location, Morton demonstrated how a body wrap is supposed to work on Schmid and Knoy.
Schmid and Knoy were wrapped up like mummies, and danced to a Richard Simmons video as part of the exercise portion of the wrap. While wrapped, they were told to tighten their muscles. (Yes – very, very ridiculous.)
“Special Formula” Does the Trick
“Pull your stomach in hard,” Morton instructed the body-wrapped patrons. She says the wraps are soaked in a secret mineral solution.
“It is the formula, the Suddenly Slender formula, that makes this work,” Morton said. ( ONE BIG LIE )
Both Schmid and Knoy were worried that wrapping their bodies so tightly they could be risking their health. But Morton assures her clients there is no need to worry, and a week after the wrap, both Schmid and Knoy were fine.
Morton claims she has done millions of wraps without any problems and denies there is a health risk.
“This not only does not dehydrate you, it will re-hydrate someone who is dehydrated. It’s good for you,” Morton said. “This is a safe … non-invasive [procedure] and I’ve wrapped babies.”
Morton’s clients must exercise for an hour while tightly wrapped. Bags on the hands and feet fill up with liquid and are emptied repeatedly. (SICK)
Morton took before and after measurements and claims both and Schmid and Knoy lost at least 6 inches each. She says the initial inches lost during the hour-long body wrap will stay off, provided the body-wrapped patrons participate in a diet and exercise program that she provides. ( Deception and More Lies )
A Matter of Inches
Morton says Schmid lost almost 3 inches from her waist. ***But after looking at the videotape, Hunter found a big discrepancy: the before measurement was taken just above Schmid’s belly button. The after measurement was taken several inches above.***(Sleazy Trick to Fool Customers)
The next day she went back to Suddenly Slender to have them remeasure, and there was no change in Schmid’s waistline.
Also, looking closely at some of the before measurements on videotape, Hunter found that Morton measures with her finger behind the tape, creating slack and a bigger measurement. On the after measurements, Morton’s finger is above the tape, and it is pulled tightly, so the measurement is smaller. (Dirty and Low-Down Tactics)
Morton refused to comment on the measurements, and the owner of the New York franchise, Liz Adams of New York Body Wraps, accused Hunter of playing games with the measurements.
Meanwhile, the body wrap volunteers questioned the wraps’ effectiveness.
“She said I lost 3 extra inches in my waist,” Schmid said. “But there’s definitely not 3 extra inches in my skirt. It’s not falling down. It’s still sitting nicely up on my waist.”
Knoy believed she may have lost a couple of inches, but wasn’t sure.
“I’m wearing a dress. It’s hard to tell,” she said. Body Wraps says they have plenty of satisfied customers who have lost inches off their waists.
But Dr. Herbert says any weight loss is temporary, and the only thing customers will surely lose is the $125 they paid for the wrap. Those who get body wraps take a risk. The only way to lose inches, he says, is through exercise and good nutrition.

Dr. Herbert sums it all up very nicely there. But the key to remember is this…

Since the body wraps dangerously pull excessive amounts of water from the body, the skin has even less of firm support base under it – and because of that, any woman with the bumps and dimples we call cellulite, will have even more bumps and dimples with saggy, droopy skin. Not a pretty site and not a good feeling.

There’s only one way to reverse the cause of cellulite bumps and dimples. When you tone, firm and lift the muscles which sit under the cellulite zones – the muscles then gently push outward against the skin layer – smoothing it out and giving it a tightly toned look.

Simple and real – it just takes a little bit of targeted work on your part. The guidance you need is right here. If you haven’t seen this video yet – then you’ll want to do it now so you can start getting rid of your cellulite ASAP (just press play)…

What Is cellulite?

The Question:

“Why Do I have Cellulite and What Is Cellulite Anyhow?”

The Answer:

Cellulite. It doesn’t discriminate. Many women have it and want to know what is cellulite and why do I have it. You may be fit, unfit, slender, or curvaceous. It just doesn’t matter. Saying cellulite is fat is too simple…and it’s wrong.

Here’s The Straight Scoop

Most women have it. Some men have it too. It doesn’t discriminate between the fit and unfit, the slender and the curvaceous. If you’ve got it then you want to know, “What is cellulite and why the heck has it decided to plant itself of my thighs!”

It’s like an uninvited guest that has refused to leave long after the polite smiles and small talk have been exhausted. You’ve tried to melt it away, squeeze it away, cream and lotion it away, and even knead it away with very little lasting satisfaction. What is cellulite powered by anyhow? Why can’t the best of the best seem to get rid of it once and for all?

Well, those other treatments, potions, injections, and concoctions don’t work because they were never designed to target the underlying reason for why you have cellulite.

Their well-meaning scientific explanations are a little lacking in the facts about what is cellulite.

Before we get to what is cellulite, let’s talk a little bit about how your lower body is structured. This, after all, is most often where cellulite decides to plant its flag.

There are layers lying just below your skin. You skin, the epidermis, is the wrapping. Just below that is a deeper layer called the dermis which lies on top of your subcutaneous fat. Then, beneath that fat is a layer of muscle tissue. Think of it like a skin parfait! And, holding all of this up is that muscle tissue.

That muscle is important when you want to know what is cellulite.

Now, many definitions point directly to fat and target it as the evil culprit for cellulite. In those definitions, that fat must be destroyed or dehydrated in order to get rid of cellulite. Sounds reasonable, right?


Your body actually needs that layer of fat. Without it, you would not be able to survive. And, cellulite is not fat so the whole explanation is not based on how your body is put together.

Want proof? Just look at a slender person with cellulite…

The correct answer to, “What is cellulite?” is that it is a condition. It’s the result of muscle atrophy which is just weak, flabby and mushy muscles that do not have the ability to support the layers above it (epidermis, dermis, and fat) like it was meant to do.

Now if you are sharp, you will wonder why a fit person, one that has some muscle tone, can still have cellulite. Great observation, and there is a great explanation for that.

The area between your waist and your ankles has 90 muscles both large and small. If these muscles are not properly challenged and strengthened with targeted, multi-dimensional exercises then some of them will not be strong. Many of the traditional exercises are only two-dimensional. This is great, but it’s not the answer when you want to get rid of cellulite. To do that, you have to reach those smaller muscles as well. That can be done with multi-dimensional techniques.

Enhance the Atrophied Muscles to Reverse the Cause of Cellulite

Now that you have a real answer for what is cellulite, your next step is to work those neglected muscles with the right technique so that you can achieve the beautiful skin that you deserve.

When you understand what cellulite is, and how your body works, then you can treat it with the right stuff to get rid of cellulite. You don’t have to live with dimpled skin, and you don’t have to spend a fortune on shallow promises that don’t work and may actually hurt you.

Cellulite Reduction on Back of Legs, Butt and Thighs

Muscle Layers to Stimulate On Back of Legs, Butt and Thighs for Cellulite Reduction

One of the most often asked questions I get from women who’ve watched the main Truth About Cellulite Video Presentation is this…

“Joey, in the video you show a great diagram of all the muscles of the front of my legs and thighs. Can you help me better understand the backside (legs, butt, thighs, etc…) muscle layer structure and cellulite reduction with your method?”

That is a great question – so I’ve put together a great answer :-)

First, I’ve created a list of the muscles on the back side – so here they are; starting from the top (hip area) and working our way down toward the ankles:

Gluteus maximus
Gluteus medius
Gluteus minimus
Tensor fascia latae
Biceps Femoris
Tibialis Posterior

That’s 14 right there - and I didn’t even list the ones which are at a deeper level. Nor have I listed the smaller muscles which play a critical role in your biomechanics and are the muscle layers which can be stimulated for toning, lifting and smoothing the skin layers which cover all those muscles.
But I want to go even deeper with you here. So, I have several anatomical diagrams showing the muscle layers in the back of your legs, butt, hips and thighs…
Here is the first one. It shows the larger, superficial muscles:

Muscles to Stimulate for Cellulite Reduction
Muscles to Stimulate for Cellulite Reduction
Again — this all ties back into structural cellulite reduction – by changing the muscle layers from an atrophied/mushy (deflated) state – to an enhanced, toned and nicely shaped level of form and function.
This second photo shows some of the deeper and smaller muscle fiber layers:
Deeper Smaller Muscles to Stimulate for Cellulite Reduction

That is the essence of The SYMULAST Method… Synergistic Muscle Layer Stimulation
Now that you see where the reversal of the cause of cellulite takes place – you understand why it’s now possible for you to get rid of the cellulite issues on your trouble spots and problem areas. So, watching the TAC Video Presentation will make a lot more sense to you now.
