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.

    With the right exercise plan, you can reduce your cellulite and make your lower body look smoother and firmer. The trick is working all your lower body muscles from every angle, reducing the underlying fat stores and replacing lost muscle tissue to give the area a taut, toned appearance throughout.

    Hey girls! My name is Marine and I'm 33 years old. Like most of you I suffered the annoying cellulite problem and I can say that it's really hard to have it because you feel really unconfortable with your body...

    That's why I put in my head that I had to finish with this issue to feel confortable with my body again. After trying some creams, products and treatments (that doesn't gave me any effect)... finally, searching trought internet, found a method that worked! It was amazing. After 4 weeks doing it I had some good results and I was very happy with it!

    As an ex-cellulite sufferer I want to share with all of you the method that changed my life because I know how hard it's to be affected with this problem. That's the site I found: http://truthaboutcellulite.co.nf

    Now that I'm a "cellulite free" girl I can say that It's really easy if you know how to attack the problem! If this could help only to one of you (I hope that more) I will be happy to having shared my history :)

    Kisses!

    I have lost all of my baby weight from having my 3rd daughter and of course being a 32 year old mother of 3, there can be areas that needa little extra help. I read a review that if you use the Lady Soma Berry Masque on cellulite - it would work. This is a glyolic mask.

    This mask will not replace proper diet and working out. However, in conjunction with, it is excellent. Decided to try the Lady Soma Mask on my stretch marks - I apply it to the area I want to treat and I wrap myself in saran plastic wrap. I see beautiful smooth results. I've even noticed a HUGE decrease in the creases on the skin on my neck. Which has been a proble since I was young. Anyway, my BUT is, you have to still work out, eat right and drink lots of h20. Enjoy the results!

    I have been taking ACV due to my ph acid levels were on high side . Been taking for 6 months .. And it is going. which is a good thing, but i HAVE NOT noticed any change with my cellulite. I'm going to start a cleaner eating plan and start some yoga to see if that helps.. Good luck ladies..I also think there isn't any magic liquid in any bottle for cellulite. You could be losing water weight..

    @concerned - there's no harm in taking or applying Apple Cider Vinegar during pregnancy. It actually helps with indigestion and acidity during pregnancy. I took it throughout my pregnancy. Good luck!
