Practical Tips on How to Treat Cellulite at Home

Everyone wants to know how to treat cellulite. But to effectively get rid of it, one must get to the root of the problem and know exactly what causes it. Heredity, lifestyle, poor blood circulation, diet and gender are considered major factors in the formation of cellulite in the body. There are ways and means by which we could reduce or prevent cellulite. These are worth considering if we wish to eliminate it altogether and regain back the flawless and smooth skin everyone wants.

Cellulite Creams of all kinds abound in the market today because of the demand for it. The promise of a cure is much too attractive to pass for women who are desperately seeking a solution to the problem. But what creams do actually work? Checking the active ingredients contained in the creams is an essential thing that has to be done. For instance, it is well known that caffeine is an all natural cellulite fighter and most cellulite creams contain this ingredient. Aminophylline (an asthma medication) as an active ingredient in cellulite creams has been proven to be an effective cure when used topically. It is found in the top selling brands of cellulite creams today. But what can work for one may not necessarily work for another.

Some practical tips on how to treat cellulite that you can do at home, are as follows:

1. Have a coffee wrap or coffee scrub

Heat some coffee beans. Place in a plastic wrap or cloth and wrap around the cellulite area. Leave on for 10 to 15 minutes. The warm coffee beans open up the pores in the skin which help the caffeine to absorb in. You can also rub ground coffee into the skin for about a minute before you take a shower. Coffee scrubs in most spas worldwide go by this principle. Coffee has been proven to reduce the swelling of fat cells thereby making the skin smoother.

2. Have regular massages

Massaging is an effective remedy for cellulite. It breaks down the fat cells and increases blood circulation. Regular massages could be a luxury for some. In cases where regular massages are impossible, Dry Brushing could be an alternative. A shower brush with soft bristles is the perfect tool to achieve this. A daily 10 minute brush to the cellulite area is required. This improves blood circulation and tones the muscles as well.

3. Drink water at room temperature rather than ice cold

It is always best to drink any beverage at room temperature. Water that is closer to body temperature is best. According to some Asian health experts, cold water or any cold beverage, solidifies the oily stuff that has just been consumed. It slows down the digestion. Once the “sludge” reacts with acid it will be absorbed by the intestine faster than the solid food thereby lining the intestinal walls and turns into fat. Is it any wonder that most Asians prefer to drink warm tea with their meals?

These are just some of the many practical tips on how to treat cellulite that you can do at your home. If followed, one has nothing to lose but everything to gain.
