Signs and Symptoms of Cellulite

Cellulite Home Remedy

Cellulite is a skin problem that can affect anyone, including men, women and children. However, women are often affected the most, with 95% of all women suffering from this condition to some extent. It is visually characterized by bulging, pitted, wrinkled, and dimpled skin on the abdomen, buttocks, hips, and thighs which occur due to fatty deposits that are concentrated in these areas. Symptoms of cellulite include a feeling of sagging, tenderness, or tightness in the affected areas, particularly while standing. The image on the right shows a woman suffering from cellulite. The right side of the image shows the same woman after the effects of cellulite have been reduced.

Causes of Cellulite

The female hormones Progesterone and Estrogen are the main causes of Cellulite. The Estrogen hormone promotes the formation and expansion of fat cells around the buttocks, thighs and breasts while Progesterone leads to the development of weak veins, fluid retention, and weight gain. Other contributing factors include smoking, stress, pregnancy, rough and harsh massages, obesity, lack of exercise, and genetics.

Home Remedies and Natural Treatments for Cellulite

Cellulite Home Remedy Using Apple Cider Vinegar

The nutritional components of Apple Cider Vinegar have been known to help reduce the appearance of cellulite.

Oral Remedy

  • Mix 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar into an 8 ounce glass of water.
  • Optionally add a small amount of honey as a sweetener.
  • Drink this once each morning.

Topical Remedy

  • Mix 3 parts apple cider vinegar with one part of your favorite massage oil.
  • Gently knead this solution onto affected skin areas twice daily.
  • This massage treatment will help to reduce the appearance of cellulite.

Exercise to Reduce Cellulite

Since cellulite is fat, excess weight can contribute to it. Therefore, physical exercises like walking or jogging, swimming, jumping on a mini-trampoline, skipping with a rope, and even yoga are all effective ways to control stress and reduce the appearance of cellulite. Other beneficial activities include weight lifting, martial arts, and dancing. Make a habit of exercising for at least 20 minutes per day, 5 days a week. This returns your body chemistry to a balanced state in which cellulite is less likely to develop.

Eat a Low-fat Balanced Diet to Treat Cellulite

A low fat balanced diet plays an important role in getting rid of cellulite. Eat plenty of fiber and wholegrain foods (such as bran and oat cereals) since they help to remove waste and toxins from the intestinal tract. Fruits and vegetables such as asparagus, avocados, bananas, broccoli, and pears are all excellent foods that prevent the development of cellulite. Therefore try to eat at least 5 servings of such foods daily.

Other beneficial things to add to your diet include fish oil, gingko biloba, and soy lecithin. These are very effective supplements that provide positive effects such as improving blood circulation, enhancing metabolism, and protecting against cell damage.

Stay away from alcohol, sugar, smoking, and caffeine since these products constrict your blood vessels and may actually worsen the appearance of cellulite. Also, try to reduce your salt intake, since salt is known to contribute to water retention which promotes cellulite.

    Natural remedies do work, I had horrible cellulite and decided to commit to a healthy diet, a complete detoxification, (colon cleanse, liver cleanse, candida cleanse), and went on a 500 calories diet and got HGH injections under the supervision of a doctor and I am impressed at the results.

    Have you tried these methods? What have you tried?

    Hey! I am a thin lady and never eat any fatty foods or have been fat in my life. I still have cellulite. It never goes away. I don't believe all of these suggestions will make cellulite go away.

    And Brenda, the only practical solution for cellulite is exercise and good nutrition. When your body does not get required amount of nutrition, it focuses only on the most necessary body functions that your routine demands. I don't remember not having cellulite ever in my life but now with lifestyle changes it has started to improve because now body has oxygen ( thanks to the everyday walk) and necessary nutritions.

    Hi brenda. I can relate to your problem because I have had this problem for at least 8 years. I tried everything while realistically focusing on the long term health concerns. But nothing worked so I went to one doctor, then another and then another. And eventually after five years of consulting good doctors, I googled my problems thoroughly and figured out that I needed a pelvic and abdominal ultrasound. Imagine my surprise when I was diagnosed with endometriosis and multiple fibroids and my condition was very bad because of the long delayed diagnosis. So I had to go through a surgery after which I put on more weight. It's been a year since my surgery. The first 8 months I kept putting on weight regardless of healthy low fat diet and exercise but have finally started to loose weight and feel healthy as well. I hope your situation is not as bad as mine. But do get your thyroid, hormones and vitamin D3 and B12 tested. It will give you a pretty clear picture of the underlying cause. Also started using my fitness pal. It's a great free app to monitor nutrition as well as the calories. And remember that with good health and consistent effort, even people with genetic tendency to be obese can, and do loose weight. Good luck. And if you need any help, leave a message here for me :)

    Cellulite is actually fat stuck in there. If you massage and make sure you get the lymph nodes it will help with the circulation, causing fat to break down.
    You have lymph nodes behind the knees, the inguinal triangle, the armpits, by the breasts, and more, always massage going towards the heart.

    Could cellulite cause extra fluid retention? I have lost 25 lbs and still have cellulite.

    I exercise 6 days a week and eat very healthy. I'm even on a low carb diet and still having problem keeping my weight down. Also I'm having a hard time getting rid of cellulite.

    To Marin3: I just watched the video that you suggested. I am highly considering ordering the package, but I just wanted to confirm with you that it is 100% worth it. I am really tight on money, but my health and looks are important to me. Please respond when you have a chance. Thanks!
