Now I should point out, this is a quick fire way of smoothing out those lumps for the short term. If you want a long term solution to the problem, a cellulite cream is something worth trying out.
But if you don't want to spend any money, then I totally recommend giving this DIY a try.
Here's What You Need
All but one of these ingredients you should be able to pick up from your local grocery store. The other can definitely be found from any health food store.
Ground Coffee (primary ingredient) – 1/2 Cup
What most girls don't know about cellulite is how it actually forms in the first place. Most people think it's a result of excess fat, which yes can play a small part in causing it to appear, but the main reason is due to an overload of toxins in your body.
It's these toxins that force the existing fat cells to take on water expanding up to 500 TIMES their original size!
The antioxidants found in coffee, combined with the caffeine to help stimulate blood flow, should help to remove any of the free radicals causing your fatty tissue to swell and expand.
Plain Sugar – 1 Tablespoon
I'm going to be honest, rubbing ground coffee into your skin doesn't feel the best. That's why throwing a little sugar into the mix can help smooth out your skin, while the coffee does its thang!
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
EVOO restores any lost moisture from the coffee and sugar. If you don't reapply moisture to the problem areas, the likelihood is the problem will return and in a much worse fashion next time around.
Vegetable Glycerin – 1 teaspoon
Adding a little extra glycerin to any skin care remedy, helps retain a lot of what would normally be lost moisture. Glycerin acts as a humectant, which is a product that has the ability to attract and absorb moisture.
If you can't find glycerin, then another option would be to substitute it with honey instead.
Vitamin E Oil – 2 teaspoons
Supplying your skin with some vitamin E, will help to repair any of the damage caused by the same free radicals responsible for the expansion of the fatty tissue that led to cellulite.
It's so important to get your skin cells back to their healthy selves again so as to prevent problems in the future.
Making And Applying Your Anti Cellulite Scrub
I'm going to make it nice and simple for you. All you need to do is follow these quick and easy steps to making and applying your scrub.
Step One: Have a hot shower to help open your pores a little wider.
Step Two: Taking a medium size bowl, add in all of the ingredients above in order from top to bottom.
Step Three: Using a wooden spoon, stir the mixture until it's nice and even.
Step Four: Using your hands, apply the scrub to the parts of your body most affected by cellulite. Make sure you really rub it in nice and hard. This process should take you at least 5 minutes and once you're done, make sure you don't wash off the scrub yet!
Step Five: Take some saran wrap and wrap it around the parts of your body where you applied the scrub. Leave it on for about 10 minutes before taking it off and washing it away with warm water. DON'T USE SOAP!
Step Six: Apply some moisturizer and you're all done!
Once the redness from the scrub goes down, you should start to notice the difference almost immediately.
As I already mentioned, this remedy is certainly not a long term solution to cellulite, but it definitely is great if you want your legs looking nice and smooth before a hot date.
