Common Question: How Do I GET RID OF Cellulite?
Cellulite is a normal occurrence, affecting almost 90 percent of women and 10 percent of men during their lifetime.
On the surface, cellulite appears as lumpy or dimpled skin.
However, the process of developing cellulite is more than skin deep.
The puckering of skin happens when the layer of fat beneath the skin pushes against connective tissue and bulges, causing the characteristic orange-peel or cottage cheese appearance.
For women, the risk of developing cellulite increases with age and peaks near menopause.
Hormonal changes, specifically a decline in estrogen levels, may contribute to changes in circulation and a reduction in the production of collagen. A combination of fat cells becoming larger or increasing in number, a thinner collagen layer and change in blood supply may lead to cellulite.
What Can You Do to decrease the effects:
✅Sit Less, and Move Around More
Prolonged sitting and an inactive lifestyle may change circulatory patterns and increase the risk of developing cellulite
Dry skin brushing may help to soften hard fat deposits below the skin while distributing fat deposits more evenly. This may help to diminish the appearance of cellulite.
The technique also stimulates the lymphatic system, exfoliates the skin, increases circulation, improves digestion and may help relieve stress.

I USE THIS ONE:
✅ Myofascial Release (Foam Rolling)
If getting a weekly massage is not in your budget, you may want to try using a foam roller. This may accomplish both myofascial release and deep tissue massage, reducing muscle immobility and pain.
They are inexpensive and often recommended by physical therapists to achieve results at home.
I use This One:
✅ Coffee Scrub ☕
Caffeine also stimulates blood and lymphatic flow to an area, may be used to exfoliate and may help tighten the skin.
Scrubs may be made with coconut oil and finely ground coffee beans as a facial mask to tighten and brighten your skin.
The effects may last for several hours.
Coffee is a rich source of antioxidants, which some believe can penetrate the skin and increase your natural production of collagen and elastin, thus reducing the appearance of cellulite.
Why ❤ Coffee. So many Benefits....
✅Grapefruit Essential Oil
One of the most recognized benefits of grapefruit essential oil and other citrus oils is their positive effect on the lymphatic system.
Using grapefruit oil may help boost the activity of lymph glands, thereby preventing problems like poor circulation and cellulite.
Mix one to two drops of grapefruit oil with carrier oil and massage into cellulite in a kneading pattern.
