Cellulite is the modification or alteration of the skin, often linked to hormonal secretions (during puberty, menopause, pregnancy, etc.). Have you ever thought about making your own natural anti-cellulite cream or treatment? Money saving and safe ingredients guaranteed!
1) Natural anti-cellulite cream
There are several ways of getting rid of cellulite, which is also called “orange peel skin”, for example, by doing more exercise (at least 30 minutes per day), doing targeted exercises or by making sure to eat a healthy, balanced diet.
Here is a natural recipe found on the website Health and Healthy Living which promises results in just 7 days:
- 20 drops of orange essential oil
- 100 mls of moisturising baby lotion (ideally organic and unperfumed)
- 3 to 5 drops of cinnamon essential oil
Pour all of the ingredients into an airtight resealable glass jar and mix them with the handle of a wooden spoon. Store your jar in a dry area for around 9 hours before using it.
Apply this home made cream to your thighs and massage it in every evening for four weeks, in order to see results.
2) Natural salt anti-cellulite treatment
Salt can naturally and effectively scrub the skin because it eliminates dead skin cells and smooths the skin. It is exfoliating (but abrasive) and promotes blood circulation, which in fact is an excellent natural remedy for cellulite.
3) Natural anti-cellulite treatment from coffee grounds
Did you know that the majority of anti-cellulite creams are made up of caffeine? Caffeine works on the dimples and destroys fats. Mix a little olive oil with your coffee grounds and massage your legs with this natural scrub. Leave it to work for 10 minutes and rinse it off with cold water (for better blood circulation).
