Are you plagued with those unsightly bumps on your bottom and thighs? I know how that feels and it’s not nice as it can ruin your confidence and self esteem, AND make beach holidays a nightmare.

In this post I will show you how to banish cellulite for good, with tried and tested, and effective methods to help you to get rid of cellulite fast on thighs, legs, bottom and anywhere else it may be plaguing you with its unwanted presence.

Cellulite affects up to 90% of women, and also to a lesser extent men, and it’s something we would all love to know the cure for. Well, there’s no ‘instant fix’ that’s for sure, but if you use some of the methods in this post then you can pretty quickly see results.

 

Your cellulite busting action plan –

I have devised a plan of action for you that’s been tried and tested on myself with amazing results.

Cellulite is basically just harmless deposits of fat that have pushed their way through the connective tissue beneath the skin, leaving unsightly lumps that mainly affect thighs, legs and bottom; but sometimes any area of the body.

Getting rid of cellulite for good may involve hitting it from a few different angles, and as with most things worth doing in life will take a little time and effort.

 

FACTORS ASSOCIATED WITH CELLULITE: 

1. HORMONES AND AGE

Many different hormones can play a role in the production of cellulite, but age is also a risk factor. This is because the reduction of estrogen in the approach to menopause decreases the flow of blood to the connective tissue under the skin, and this plays a role in the formation of cellulite.

 

2. WATER

Staying fully hydrated is very important when it comes to cellulite, so this means lots of pure filtered water/herbal teas. Keeping hydrated is not only essential for every system in your body, but it will also plump up the skin (in a good way) all over the body, therefore making cellulite much less visible.

Proper hydration will also make fine lines and wrinkles on your face seem much less visible, almost like a much cheaper version of BOTOX!

 

3. DIET

I know, you knew I was going to say it, but your diet plays such a massive role in cellulite prevention that I have to mention it. Cutting down on dairy for a start would be helpful, as it is full of hormones such as estrogen and as we already have a ton our own hormones to deal with, taking on more can cause cause cellulite to form on your legs and bottom.

Eating a highly alkaline plant based diet will do wonders not only for cellulite and detoxification, but also for every other aspect of your health.

Eating an unhealthy diet full of saturated fats, sugar and salt will absolutely NOT do you any favours in the cellulite department either. Instead you should try to add as many as possible of these top cellulite busting foods every day, which. These will help eliminate cellulite for good:-

  • Chillies and cayenne; or anything that is hot!
  • Oily fish such as salmon, mackerel, trout; or if you can’t eat fish then try omega 3 supplements
  • Sunflower Seeds
  • Fruits – mainly blueberries, oranges, watermelon, grapefruit, bananas, apricots, apples, and lemons
  • Vegetables – mainly asparagus, broccoli, garlic, beansprouts, cucumber, celery, fennel, beetroot, and cabbage
  • Wholegrains, such as wholegrain bread, pasta, spelt, buckwheat, quinoa, millet and rye
  • Cacao (yes I mean chocolate, but the dark stuff with over 70% cacao solids so there is not too much added sugar). 
  • Green, Nettle, and Dandelion teas in abundance.
  • Extra Virgin Olive and coconut oils.
  • Apple Cider Vinegar (with the mother). ‘ACV and weight loss benefits’.

 

It would also help you immensely to incorporate some fat burning foods into your diet. The foods on this fat burning foods list will help to flush those toxins out of your system in no time. These foods are easily incorporated into your everyday diet and will be another angle with which you can hit that cellulite with.

 

4. EXERCISE

This is another biggy to consider on your cellulite busting mission. Having strong muscles and definition will go a long way to hiding those lumpy, bumpy areas. Squats for example, are a great exercise for reducing the appearance of cellulite on the bottom and thigh area, but ANY exercise is good as it will get your lymphatic drainage system working, thus flushing out toxins and reducing cellulite.

 

 

5. DRY SKIN BRUSHING

Skin brushing is a highly effective way of boosting lymph drainage, which in turn will release stored up toxins and help break down cellulite. It also buffs off dead and dry skin cells, tightens skin, promotes cell renewal, and boosts circulation, giving you an all round glow.

How to do it –

Invest in a good body brush with natural firm bristles and use it every day, right before you get in the shower ideally. Start at your feet and brush in firm, upward and swift strokes towards your heart, then continue to do the rest of your body – always stroking towards the heart (this is the best way for circulation).

Make sure the room (or you) aren’t steamy or wet, as the idea is for you and the brush to both be completely dry.

 

6. ESSENTIAL OILS FOR CELLULITE

The best oil by far for cellulite, both orally (for its fat burning qualities) and externally, is the good old inexpensive coconut oil. You can either use it alone, or as a carrier oil for other anti cellulite essential oils such as cinnamon, cypress, grapefruit, and lemon.

 

7. DETOXIFICATION

Another angle to hit cellulite is through helping your detoxification systems to do their job properly, and adding in certain detoxification foods into your diet can help with this.  

 

8. MASSAGE

Massage can be REALLY good for helping reduce cellulite (though this can be temporary, so be sure to do it frequently for long term results). Use your coconut oil and really give problem areas a vigorous massage with the fingertips for at least 5 minutes – this really helps to get things moving.

 

GET RID OF CELLULITE FAST:

FANTASTIC COCONUT OIL AND COFFEE SCRUB

This scrub is cheap, easy to make, and HIGHLY EFFECTIVE alongside the massage. You simple need to mix 1/4 cup of coffee grounds (the caffeine in coffee is great for cellulite), 3 tbsp of white or brown sugar, and 2-3 tbsp of melted but not too hot, coconut oil.

Mix this together to form a paste, then apply to troubled ares during a shower. (Stand away from the water as you don’t want it wash straight off as it needs to be massaged in for a couple of minutes).

Applying all of the above should get you seeing the results you desire in the quickest time possible. The more effort you put in the better the results – this is especially true when it comes to diet and exercise.

Yes, I would like to get rid of cellulite fast. I have not found any one cure, pill, or lotion that really works. The only thing that has worked for me is diet and exercise. And yes, lots and lots of water. I do also do the brushing, and the jacuzzi jets are great for massaging those areas. I had heard of coffee and I am ready to try the mixture you have here with the coconut oil. Can’t hurt to try, that is for sure and I have heard that coffee does wonders.

    Hi there,

    Thanks for reading and enjoying the article. I have tried all of the things on the list and have found, like you, that the best things for cellulite are exercise, diet, body brushing and massage.  If you do a combination of all of these things on a regular basis then you are going to see results.

    I did however find the coffee scrub helped and is well worth a go.

Hi,
Thanks for this interesting information! My big problem is that I don’t drink enough water or anything else. My mouth, eyes and skin are always dry. So I think I’m going to try to drink enough water and try those coconut oils internally and externally. I have never used coconut oil in the kitchen, but I will do it now if it can help.
Thanks.
Mary Jo

    Hi Mary Jo,

    Thanks for reading my post and I’m glad it was helpful to you.

    Yes you definitely need to drink more if your’e so dehydrated that your eyes and skin are dry then that is not great. If you don’t like water then you can flavour it with something like lemon juice or sugar free juice.

    Another fantastic alternative would be to drink coconut water as it is full of electrolytes which makes the fluid much more easily absorbed into your cells, therefore hydrating you more than water.

    This combined with the coconut oil should have you glowing in no time.

    Good luck and please feel free to ask if you have any more questions.

    Thanks

Hi,
The first thing i will say is wow look at that bum, i hate the fact that i have cellulite and would love to have a bottom like that again, like you say the menopause really doesnt help so im glad i have come across this as we all like to try and look after ourselves.
I have used the coffee as a scrub on my face and it works wonders a bit messy but good.
How long would it take to see a difference?.
I am also going to try the dry skin brushing looks easy enough, how many times a week would you say i should do this?
Thanks for this info.

    Hi there Sharon,

    Thanks for reading and enjoying the post.

    Yes I know, cellulite can literally be a pain in the butt! But in answer to your question, I think if you applied all the principles (especially the dry skin brushing) every day you should start to see improvements at least, quite quickly.

    And definitely make sure you are eating a healthy diet incorporating as many as those anti cellulite foods as possible and also the fast fat burning foods (https://zestforever.com/super-…which is in the link on the page). If you start making these things a habit then things will change for you, not only the cellulite problem but you will also gain great skin and oodles of energy.

    Please let me know if you have any more questions and I will be happy to help.

A really informative post, thank you! I’m the mature side of 30 and my cellulite is much more obvious/worse than even a few years ago, and I’m no heavier! So age definitely plays a part. I religiously body brushed my thighs every night for about 3 years back in my early 20s when I didn’t have children so had more energy to do things like that! I found that hugely effective and it’s reminded me to start it up again! The 5 minutes of effort can make such a difference to how you feel about yourself!

    Hi Alice,

    What a great comment!

    I know it gets worse as we get older but I think hormones play a part in that, especially after having babies. But yes it’s so true about the body brushing, it makes such a difference as does diet. I hope you get back into it again soon.

    Thanks

More great information, and I think all of us women have some form of cellulite. I like the scrub I can do in the shower. I coincidentally ordered coconut oil today for my scalp. Now I can use it for the scrub as well. Definitely worth a try!

    Stefanie Taylor · 03/04/2018 at 9:10 am

    Yes you should definitely do a coconut oil scrub too. In fact, there are SO MANY uses for coconut oil that I did a whole post on it that you may well be interested in But when it comes to cellulite, diet and exercise also play a huge part – as do genetics. So make sure your’e eating clean healthy plant based foods.

    There are some that are specifically good for cellulite and I think I shall do a whole post on that in the future as it is such a big area with so much to cover. But good luck with your coconut oil.
