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.

    Check your thyroid levels too ladies. I went to doctor to see what was causing weight gain. No matter what I did (nutrisystem, weight lifting, cardio and drinking a gallon of water a day), I wasn't losing weight. My doctor did bloodwork and found out that I needed thyroid medicine.

    Have you tried Apple Cider Vinegar and found that your stomach can't handle it? I was just wondering because it actually helps settle my husband's stomach.

    Don't use endermologie unless you can continue it for life. I went through this treatment for about 6 months then they stopped providing that service. Now my cellulite has gone form mild to severe.

    @ Ruth - Maybe she was on the HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) diet.

    If you have stomach issues like me, apple cider vinegar is a no can do. I would suggest, stop eating oils, red meat, fatty or processed foods and no smoking, and no alcohol. Do exercise everyday either treadmill or whatever you like. That's the only thing that improved my Cellulite.

    Soy isn't always GMO....look for non-gmo soy products.

    I have also heard that apple cider vinegar may work for Cellulite and it also has many other benefits to keep you healthy. Be careful when using soy lecithin because this product is made with GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms).
