Natural Cellulite Remedies

The 'cottage cheese' or 'orange peel' appearance on skin is the cellulite. It is simply the lumpy, dimpled skin which appears mainly on hips, thighs and buttocks. It is nothing but fat deposit under the skin that shows on it. It is a woman specific disorder and 'not a disease'. Just follow some natural home remedies for cellulite reduction.


Home Remedies for Reducing Cellulite


You can apply one or more home remedy for cellulite removal from among this list based on your specific problem.


  1. Massage the cellulite affected region with a mixture of rosemary, fennel essential oil and almond oil daily.
  2. Weight loss is the mantra to reduce cellulite. Have low fat, high fiber diet with a lots   of green vegetables and fresh fruits.
  3. Limit the intake of alcohol, soda, carbonated drinks and caffeine drinks like coffee       etc.
  4. Quit smoking.
  5. Exfoliate skin regularly with home made scrubs. Mix gram flour with milk and make a   thick paste of it. Rub on skin to exfoliate skin.
  6. Combine salt or used coffee grounds with some olive oil to make a similar exfoliating   scrub. Use these scrubs to exfoliate the skin once or twice a week.
  7.  Exercise regularly. Yoga is good for reducing cellulite. The 'yoga asanas' or postures     like Dandayamana, Dhanurasana, Ardha Chandrasana, Utkatasana, Supta-Vajrasana,   Dhanurasana, Salabhasana are particularly meant for reducing fat and cellulite.           Learn these yoga asanas from expert yoga guru or teacher.
  8. Drink freshly squeezed lemons in 1 cup of water with a pinch of cayenne daily.
  9. Onions, chlorophyll-rich foods, wheatgrass, green tea, vitamin A, amino acids, all are   great help for reducing cellulite.
  10. While watching TV or reading magazines, news papers etc., keep your legs elevated.
  11. Massage the affected area with a mixture of dried thyme, grapefruit juice, and corn     oil to reduce cellulite.
  12. Take Ayurvedic massage that is done with dry powder made of herbs. It helps in         both- weight loss and cellulite reduction.
Follow a healthy lifestyle. Eat healthy and exercise regularly. Watch your body weight- fat is the culprit for cellulite formation.


Causes Cellulite

Its name makes it sound like a medical condition. But cellulite is nothing more than normal fat beneath the skin. The fat appears bumpy because it pushes against connective tissue, causing the skin above it to pucker.
Cellulite isn't harmful. Many people, though, would like to get rid of it because of the way it looks.

Causes Cellulite

Having cellulite doesn't mean you are overweight. Even thin people can have it. If you are overweight, however, losing weight may reduce cellulite.
Cellulite is more common among women than men. If other women in your family have cellulite, there's a good chance you will too.
Other factors that influence how much cellulite you have and how visible it is include:
·         Poor diet
·         Fad dieting
·         Slow metabolism
·         Lack of physical activity
·         Hormone changes
·         Dehydration
·         Total body fat
·         Thickness and color of your skin
Cellulite tends to be less noticeable on darker skin. If you have light skin and plan to be out in a bathing suit or short shorts, applying a self-tanner may make the bumps and dimples on your thighs less noticeable.

Cellulite Treatments

There are many products and treatments that promise to get rid of cellulite on thighs and buttocks. But there is little evidence that shows that many of them work well or for long. Here is what you should know about some of the options:
Cellulite creams. These creams are said to dissolve fat and smooth the skin. But many cellulite creams contain aminophylline, a prescription drug approved for treating asthma. There is no scientific evidence that these creams are effective against cellulite, and for some people, they can be harmful. Their apparent effect on cellulite may be due to narrowing blood vessels and forcing water from the skin, which could be dangerous for people with circulatory problems. Aminophylline can also cause an allergic reaction in some people.
Liposuction. This is a surgical procedure to remove fat deposits from the body. Liposuction, though, removes deep fat, not cellulite, which is just beneath the skin. The American Academy of Dermatology warns that liposuction may actually worsen the appearance of cellulite by creating more depressions in the skin.
Mesotherapy. Mesotherapy is a therapy originally developed in Europe to relieve pain of inflammatory skin conditions. It involves injecting substances such as vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and enzymes into the tissue just beneath the skin. Mesotherapy may break down fat and bring a slight improvement in the appearance of cellulite. But it also carries risks, which include swelling, infection, and irregular contours.
Massage and spa treatments. Massage and other spa treatments may have a temporary effect on the dimpling appearance of skin. But they do not remove cellulite. Any effect is short-lived and probably due to the removal of excess fluid.
Laser treatment. The FDA has cleared the use of a device that uses laser energy to treat cellulite. According to the manufacturer, the device can melt fat under the skin, break up the fibrous bands under the skin, and stimulate collagen production.

What Lies Ahead in the Treatment of Cellulite

Although reviews of current therapies are mixed, doctors are always looking at new treatments for cellulite. One procedure involves using red and infrared light emitting diodes (LEDs) to emit certain wavelengths known to disrupt fat tissue, causing it to shrink. This procedure is combined with rollers and suctions to soften the fibrous bands of connective tissue that cause the dimpled appearance.
Although such procedures may hold promise for the future, for now, the best option is exercise, and, if needed, weight loss. Experts agree that the most effective exercise routine for cellulite is one that incorporates aerobic exercise and strength training along with a diet rich in fruits, vegetables, and fiber.

5 ways kill Your Cellulite


5 Critical Keys to Kill Your Cellulite


One of our contributing experts recently put together a kick-butt article that is the “Do This – and DON’T Do That” rule-book when it comes to getting rid of unsightly cellulite dimples, shadows and ripples. It’s a quick read with some eye-opening tips and a helpful video that you’ll want to see while it’s still up.
———————————————————————————————————————-
-contributed by – Joey Atlas, Womens’ Body Enhancement Specialist — M.S., Exercise Physiology"

"Ask any woman on the street what the definition of "cellulite" is and you'll get a confused variety of answers. From “toxic fat pockets caught in the skin” to “bands of fiber pulling down on the skin” and many odd things in between…"
no more cellulite orange bikini
Cellulite Gone – Bikini On
The truth is: most people really don’t know what “cellulite” actually is, or, what causes this odd appearance of the lower body trouble zones…"
This is no surprise as there actually is no such thing as ‘cellulite’… So how do we get rid of something which doesn’t exist?"
Here’s the answer:
"The word, “cellulite”, was cleverly made-up several decades ago, in a European beauty-spa, to DESCRIBE the bumpy, shadowy and dimpled appearance of skin in the lower body trouble zones of the female body. (butt, hips, thighs, legs)"
The beauty spas then started cashing-in and profiting big-time by marketing "beauty" services and products to get rid of "cellulite". And if you're like most women who've been challenged by this issue, then you probably already know all of those passive and superficial beauty treatments do not get rid of the dented shadows and mushy dimples on your buns, legs and thighs."
In order to make your lower-body smooth, tight and attractive, there are 5 steps to follow.
Here they are:

5 Critical Keys to KILL Your Cellulite

1: You cannot get rid of the dimples and shadows (cellulite) by rubbing an odd gel, weird lotion or goopy cream on your trouble zones and problem spots.
So, stop using them – as some can actually make your cellulite worse.
Despite the fact that there are dozens of supposed ‘cellulite reduction creams’ on the market, there is no possible way for any one of them, no matter how expensive, to get rid of your cellulite. Cellulite is not a skin problem. Its an underlying structural issue, that can only be corrected by reversing the cause of atrophied muscle fibers directly beneath your “cellulite” trouble spots."
Since the squishy dimples and shadows are a superficial symptom of a problem below the surface; it’s impossible for the creams, lotions or gels to have any physiological impact on the cause of the issue…"
2: Risky and expensive ‘medi-spa treatments’ can only reduce your bank account – not your cellulite problems. And there are many consumer reports about women being seriously scarred or injured as well.
Stay away from these as the FDA reports show women who’ve been scarred or injured for life.
Painful, dangerous and uncomfortable services ranging from endermologie to body-wrapping have been proven to be totally ineffective when it comes to treating cellulite. However, advertising and marketing loopholes allow these services to be cleverly marketed to desperate women who are at wits end with the unattractive dimples and shadows on the lower-body problem areas."
3: The unattractive dimples, shadows and saggy ripples known as cellulite are not ‘genetic’ and you are NOT stuck with them forever if you have them.
Falsely believing this will prevent you from getting rid of your cellulite. So, don’t entertain this nonsense for 1 second.
These two ridiculous myths are often passed around by ‘neighborhood know-it-alls’ – and many women actually believe these 2 myths – especially if they haven’t found the right way to get rid of the cellulite. Whats even more alarming are the number of doctors who also believe in and foster these 2 demoralizing falsehoods.
Yes – it is common to see a mother and daughter, both with the lower-body "orange peel" look, BUT this doesn't mean cellulite is genetic – it simply means both women have not found a way to lift, tone and firm the muscle layers under the dimpled, saggy skin."
4: You can get rid of cellulite, regardless of your age – or when you began to notice it."
Since cellulite is a structural issue (muscle) – it can be fixed with simple and unique body movements which target the cellulite areas."
These types of moves can be followed by any woman, regardless of her age or fitness level. And it doesn’t matter if the cellulite started in the early teen years – or after pregnancy – or after menopause – it’s still a structural issue that results from soft, un-toned muscles underneath the saggy, dimpled, shadowy skin."
5: The only proven way to permanently get rid of the dimples and shadows of cellulite is through a series of simple, yet specifically targeted lower-body movements"
These unique movements focus on lifting, shaping and toning the muscle layers so they gently push outward against the skin – to bring back the smooth, tight and sexy appearance, while burning off any excess flab, if there is any."
This is how regular women reverse the cause of cellulite dimples and shadows… AND, if there happens to be any excess fat in those zones – it will be burned off as fuel by the muscles. This bonus of losing any unhealthy excess body-fat is nice because it reveals a great body and it works wonders for your health profile."
BUT you won’t learn about these unique slow-tempo movements in the gym or your local health club."
These body movements are NOT done with typical weights and machine type exercises." "Most regular fitness instructors don’t even know about this type of targeted cellulite-killing method. (click to watch video)
"
These muscle-stimulating movements can be done right at home, in total privacy."
The female lower-body has over 90 muscles…"
Picture those 90 muscles BENEATH your skin’s surface in your legs, butt, hips and thigh zones. That’s where the magic happens in regards to true removal of mushy dimples and saggy shadows in the trouble spots and problem areas…
Despite what most women have been led to believe, there is a critical difference between a ‘general workout program’ – and a laser-focused, cellulite removal method. The sweetest benefit of this is; you don’t need access to a health club or fitness center." …"Just click PLAY on this video by Joey Atlas, (M.S., Ex.Phys.) and get it started now:" (it opens in a bigger screen so you don’t miss a thing)
These are simple, unique moves you can start doing today, right in the privacy of your own home. And if you start this type of targeted muscle stimulation method today – you will start feeling results within 2 weeks and seeing results within 3 to 4 weeks."

Cellulite (also known as adiposis edematosa)

This article is about the appearance of dimpled skin. For infections of the skin and underlying connective tissue, see cellulitis. Not to be confused with Celluloid.
cellulite

Cellulite (also known as edematous adiposis, dermopanniculosis deformans, status protrusus cutis, gynoid lipodystrophy, and orange peel syndrome) is the herniation of subcutaneous fat within fibrous connective tissue topography manifests as skin dimpling and nodularity, often in the hip area (especially the buttocks), legs bottom, and stomach Cellulite occurs in most women postpubescent.


History
The term was first used in 1920 by spa services and beauty to promote their services, and began appearing in English language publications in the late 1960s, with the earliest reference in Vogue magazine, "Like a rapidly migrating fish, the word cellulite has suddenly across the Atlantic. "[4] existence as a real disorder has been challenged, and the prevailing medical opinion is that it is a" normal condition of many women ". sales prospects create incentives for disease mongering. Based on recent research, it is more likely that cellulite is a natural part of the human body from disease.

Epidemiology
Cellulite is estimated to occur in 80-90% of post-adolescent women. There seems to be a hormonal component to the presentation. It is rarely seen in males, but is more common in men with androgen-deficient states, such as syndrome, hypogonadism, Klinefelter postcastration state and in patients receiving estrogen therapy for prostate cancer. Cellulite becomes more severe as the androgen deficiency worsens in these males. [Citation needed]

Cause
The cause of cellulite including changes in metabolism, physiology, diet is too hard or too much, sexual dimorphic skin architecture-specific, changes in connective tissue structure, hormonal factors, genetic factors, microcirculatory system, the extracellular matrix, and subtle inflammatory changes.

Hormonal factors
Hormones play a dominant role in the formation of cellulite. Estrogen is an important hormone possible to initiate and aggravate cellulite. However, there is no reliable clinical evidence to support such claims. Other hormones, including insulin, the catecholamines adrenaline and noradrenaline, thyroid hormones, and prolactin, which are all believed to participate in the development of cellulite.

genetic factors
There is a genetic element in individual susceptibility to cellulite. The researchers, led by Enzo Emanuele have traced the genetic component of cellulite to particular polymorphisms in the angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) and hypoxia-inducible factor 1A (HIF1a) gene.

Predisposing factors
Several factors have been shown to influence the development of cellulite. Gender, race, biotype, the distribution of subcutaneous fat, and the propensity for lymphatic and circulatory insufficiency have all been shown to contribute to cellulite.

Life style
A high stress lifestyle will cause increased levels of catecholamines, which are also associated with the evolution of cellulite. certain dietary practices can also reduce the levels of these chemicals [citation needed], and a decrease in body fat usually results in the reduction of cellulite.

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.
