Cellulite is an accumulation of fat under the surface of the skin that is mostly seen on female thighs and hips. It is merely an aesthetical problem, but it can ruin a women’s self-esteem.
Cellulite appears in the form of small dimples and makes your skin look similar to an orange peel.
In general, cellulite is caused by unhealthy lifestyle or genetics. It’s pretty difficult to remove, with even expensive treatment not doing a thing to it. However, there is one natural recipe that can remove the cellulite from your legs and make them look smoother than ever before.
Here’s how to prepare it:
- ¼ lemon
- 1 grapefruit
- A small piece of ginger
- 2 oranges
Peel the ingredients and put everything in a blender, then mix until you get a homogenous substance. Drink the smoothie a few times a day to detoxify your body and cut through the cellulite. Besides treating it, the smoothie will also improve the quality of your skin and reinforce your immune system as well.
Here’s a great anti-cellulite DIY cream you can also try:
- A cup of olive oil
- A cup of sugar
- A cup of ground coffee
Mix everything in a blender, then rub the cream on your hips and thighs a few times per day. Massage it in nicely with small circular motions, and you should see the cellulite retreating soon. Rinse with water in the end, and use the cream at least 2-3 times per week.
In order to prevent cellulite, you should do cardio exercises 3-5 times a week, and include some weight training in your regime as well. In this way, you’ll activate your resting metabolism and make your body burn fat even when you’re not physically active.
