Cellulite Reduction Treatment

A cellulite reduction treatment doesn't have to be high tech or invasive. If you want to reduce the appearance of cellulite in your skin, these cellulite treatments are natural, affordable and easy to follow.

Caffeine
You don't always just get your caffeine from drinking coffee. In fact, caffeine is an ingredient that many cellulite creams include. However, you don't have to buy that cream in order to get caffeine to work for you. You might try using coffee grounds on your cellulite. First, line your bathroom floor with newspaper. Then, take those grounds while they are still warm and rub them onto your cellulite. Next, wrap the areas in plastic wrap and sit for a few minutes. Remove the plastic wrap from your legs and rinse.

Glucosamine
You may want to consider taking a glucosamine supplement. Glucosamine is thought to strengthen connective tissues. While glucosamine is not available in foods, our bodies do manufacture the substance. However, as women age, their bodies produce less glucosamine. Glucosamine may also help prevent osteoporosis and help with arthritis.

Massage
Try massaging the areas of your body that have cellulite. This may help increase circulation to the area as well as force those fat cells to break down. If you prefer, you can use a soft brush on your damp skin for a change, brushing towards your heart.

Essential Oils
You might also like to massage your cellulite-intense areas using essential oils. For example, the essential oils of rosemary or cypress are thought to reduce water or fluid retention. Juniper, which can also help reduce fluids, is good for detoxifying those areas. Try oils such as avocado oil, rosehip oil or grape seed oil as carriers for the essential oils that can attack your cellulite.

Natural Cellulite Reduction Treatment Effectiveness
None of these natural therapies have been clinically proven to reduce the amount of cellulite that you may have. Some of them may work on a temporary basis because the treatments have induced swelling in those areas, making your skin appear to be smoother.

If you decide to add supplements to your diet, make sure that you consult with your physician. Any supplements, natural or synthetic, may have side effects. In addition, supplements may interact with any other drugs or supplements that you may be taking.
