Cellulite is the bumpy, dimpled, orange rind appearance of fats beneath the skin. Almost all women have cellulite and eradicating cellulite is a 12 million dollars per year industry. That’s how much women spend every year trying to get rid of cellulite.
In most cases, the methods are neither effective nor long-lasting. They’re just a drain on finances, time and emotional well-being. Many women get depressed and disappointed when the cellulite creams, massages, detox cleanses, etc. do not work.
Everything just seems like a waste of money and time. The women start hating their bodies and develop a negative self-image.
The reason for this is that they have been lied to. They were made to believe that cellulite is a special condition that needs special creams, massages or other dodgy products to treat. The truth is that cellulite is just fat. Normal body fat.

The fat just appears clumpy and awful because of the structure of the underlying tissues in the body. These tissues are connected in a way where the body is able to store fat. Once the fat stores accumulate and start pushing up against the skin, cellulite appears.
Men have tissues that connect differently from that of women and their skin is also thicker. This is why they do not have cellulite.
Now that you know that cellulite is nothing more than fat, you will be able to deal with it like normal body fat. Cellulite is not water retention or trapped toxins or any other weird explanation. Let’s keep things simple. Fat is fat and fat can be burned off with a good diet and exercise.
Your diet will need to be clean and wholesome. Consume foods that are unprocessed. Avoid white flour products and white rice. All these foods have a high GI. That means, they cause spikes in blood sugar levels and increase insulin production will lead to fat gain.
You will want to consume more protein. Any carbohydrates you eat should be slow digesting and complex. Examples would be oats or wholegrain bread. You may also get your carbs from vegetables. Your diet will also need to be low in salt. Too much sodium causes water retention and gives you the bloated feeling.
Drink lots of water daily. Consume collagen supplements and other supplements that will keep your skin supple, elastic and healthy.
Exercise will be crucial to losing the fat. You will need to combine cardio sessions with resistance training. Many women neglect resistance training because they are afraid to get muscular. This is very far from the truth.
Resistance training will make you leaned and toned but it will not make you look like a he-man. That takes years of training, supplements, etc. Even men struggle to gain muscle. So, no worries there.
You will want to focus on compound movements for the lower body. Lunges, squats, leg presses, deadlifts, calf raises quadrupedal movements, etc. All these will increase the lean muscle mass in your body while your fats are burned off. It’s awesome.
Cardio sessions should be about 20 to 30 minutes. The higher the intensity the better. Cycling, running, stair climbing, etc. are great cardio workouts.
If you follow the advice above, you will burn your fat stores and be lean in no time. Once your body fat levels drop, so will your cellulite. You will have toned legs and buttocks that will be the envy of other women. Not to mention the extra attention from the guys. Life will be good.
Cellulite affects lots of us. So if you have it, just know that you are not alone! It doesn’t matter if you are overweight or not – many women who are slim and fit have cellulite too. Just because you are slim, doesn’t necessarily mean you won’t get cellulite. It’s actually a fact that 90% of women will get cellulite in their lifetime! :(
This blog post isn’t really to talk about the cause of cellulite, because it seems that the pros aren’t 100% clear on what causes it. Genetics, lack of exercise, poor diet, poor circulation and hormones are thought to be the main culprits.
But anyway, back to what I want to talk about – how to get rid of cellulite naturally.
Resistance training is thought to be better than cardio for treating cellulite. Resistance training builds muscle, increases blood flow / circulation and can improve the appearance of cellulite. It won’t cure it completely, but it will make it look better.
Exercise may also help prevent cellulite. Connective tissue is weakened by excess fat and lack of muscle tone, and this can be prevented by exercising and improving your circulation.
I would aim to do some form of resistance training 3 times per week to get your muscles moving and blood circulating. It doesn’t need to be super strenuous – any form of resistance training is great!
Everywhere I read seems to mention the fact that hormones play a role in causing cellulite. Hormone imbalances may affect the way your body stores fat and can also affect your circulation.
Improving both your hormones and circulation is thought to improve the appearance of cellulite.
I have had many issues with hormones imbalances so I have written a blog post on how a hormone imbalance can cause weight gain if you want to have a read to find out more.
You may be more susceptible to a hormone imbalance if you are taking the contraceptive pill or if you are going through menopause. If you think you have a hormone imbalance, it would be a good idea to see a doctor or naturopath to get your hormones tested and get the appropriate treatment.
For anyone out there who smokes! Smoking causes premature ageing and affects your skin in numerous ways. As you get older, your body’s collagen naturally decreases. Smoking speeds up this process. It will cause the skin to lose it’s elasticity and cellulite will appear worse.
I don’t know if smoking actually causes cellulite but it will definitely make it look worse. Stopping smoking may not make the cellulite look better, but it will hopefully stop it from getting worse over time.
It is thought the dry brushing increases blood and lymph flow to an area, which can help with cellulite. There’s no scientific evidence to prove it, but it could be worth a try! All you need is a dry brush, so it’s cheap. Plus improving your circulation wouldn’t be a bad thing :)
The idea behind massage and foam rolling is the same – improves circulation which can help with cellulite. I’m not 100% sure if it would work, but again, it’s worth a try. Plus who doesn’t love a massage! If you don’t like massages (crazy) or can’t afford them, you could always get a foam roller and do it at home in front of the TV.
Fitness wise I love having a foam roller for when my body is really sore. I know I should use it after every workout, but I don’t. But anyway, it’s a great piece of equipment to have and you should try to use it everyday if you can!
Again, eating a healthy diet will not cure cellulite. But it may help prevent it, and improve the appearance.
Eating lots of fruit and vegetables and natural, high fiber foods will help you lose weight (or maintain a healthy weight), reduce inflammation and keep your connective tissues strong.
Also make sure to drink lots of water!
I actually didn’t know this, but apparently underwear with tight elastic limits blood flow and can contribute to the formation of cellulite! So try to avoid really tight underwear.
I’ve done a lot of research on cellulite and it is clear that there is no “cure” or treatment that is 100% effective. None of these things that I’ve mentioned are really cures, but are things that can help prevent cellulite or improve the appearance of it.
I’m sure they will develop some type of amazing procedure in the future to get rid of cellulite. But at the moment, it seems like the best thing to do is take care of your body – eat well, exercise, don’t smoke, massage or foam roll, and make sure your hormones are all balanced!
I will write another blog post next week on cosmetic procedures, creams and scrubs and do a review of what works to get rid of cellulite and what doesn’t. So stay tuned for that! xx
Cellulite is a collection of subdermal fat stores that gives skin that signature ‘orange peel’ texture. Although it’s completely normal (even supermodels get it!) and is in no way harmful to your health, many women wish they didn’t have it. There are several ways you can reduce its appearance and not all of them are expensive surgical solutions. Here’s how to get rid of cellulite naturally.
Before we begin, let’s dive in with some quick-fire facts about cellulite.
Now that we’ve covered that, here are some natural ways to get rid of cellulite.
Dry brushing is considered by many to be one of the most effective natural remedy for cellulite and has been since the 1990s. It involves brushing your bare skin with a soft-bristled brush in order to give it a smoother, more radiant appearance.
Dry brushing helps to exfoliate your skin. According to Dr Mona Gohara, member of the American Academy of Dermatology, exfoliation helps to remove dry, dead skin cells and makes it easier for your skin to rehydrate itself.
In addition, the motion of dry brushing helps to boost circulation and the lymphatic system to increase the flushing of waste products and toxins from the body. Poor circulation and lymph drainage can cause swelling of the skin which can aggravate cellulite and make it even harder to get rid of. It can also inhibit the healing of connective tissues and collagen that play vital roles in the appearance of skin. Dry brushing helps to combat that.
Many women have reported success by mixing coffee grounds with warm water to create a scrub and using it on cellulite areas to reduce its appearance.
The motion of massaging coffee scrub on your cellulite areas stimulates blood and lymphatic flow. This helps to send nutrients particularly to that area of the body and remove toxins at the same time. This aids cell renewal. In addition, the caffeine in the coffee can be absorbed by the skin and has a tightening effect - which helps to reduce cellulite.
Juniper and rosemary oil can help to moisturize and strengthen the skin. They can also have a positive effect on blood circulation which can reduce the appearance of cellulite.
Applying a daily moisturizing mix of juniper and rosemary oil can help to detoxify, hydrate and strengthen the skin. The motions of rubbing the oil in will stimulate blood circulation and lymph drainage, which prevents the buildup of toxins in the body. The moisturizing nature of the oils promotes healthy skin and will naturally help to reduce the appearance of cellulite.
While sudden weight loss can actually make cellulite appear more pronounced, weight-based, resistance exercises can help tone the body, increase muscle and make the skin appear smoother.
Resistance exercises build muscle that act like fillers in your skin’s layers. If you lose weight and replace the spaces with muscle, your skin won’t be as lax and pull on your septae. This means it’s less likely for the fatty pockets (that cause cellulite) to push through.
Cryotherapy is a form of cold therapy that involves briefly exposing the body (or localized areas of the body) to subzero temperatures. This can have a number of beneficial effects on the body.
Cellulite is best treated using localized cryotherapy. By suddenly and briefly exposing certain parts of the body to subzero temperatures, you can activate a number of different reactions. Firstly, collagen production is stimulated, which helps to repair any broken connections found in the skin, strengthening the skin and helping to reduce the appearance of cellulite in the process.
Secondly, cryotherapy has been known to stimulate metabolism. When the body’s exposed to sudden cold conditions, it activates the fight or flight mode. This means the body gets itself ready for survival which results in a series of chain reactions - such as adrenaline rushes, boosted blood circulation and nutrients rushing around the body, ready to heal the body if it becomes injured.
In addition, the cold temperatures also trick the body into thinking it’s going to freeze. This means you start shivering and internal processes start speeding up to help raise core temperature. Metabolism increases and fat is burned more quickly as your body needs energy to help raise core temperature.
Because more fat deposits are burned, cellulite appears much less pronounced.
Although cellulite is completely normal and happens to women of all shapes and sizes, many people try to reduce its appearance as much as possible. Contrary to popular belief, not all of the remedies for cellulite are expensive or surgical. For instance, cryotherapy is known to help to significantly reduce the appearance of cellulite which contributes to its popularity.
