Cellulite is considered normal and very common. Cellulite is actually caused by fibrous tethers that run through your fat and pull on the fascia that lies underneath your skin resulting in lumpy, bumpy thighs and buttocks. It effects up to 90 percent of women and approximately 10 percent of men. Getting rid of those pesky dimples takes a dedicated routine. Ideally dry brushing and caffeine based scrub should be done 3 to 5 times per week to smooth the appearance of cellulite.
Dry brushing is good for glowing skin, manual lymphatic drainage and also helps to remove cellulite from the body by boosting oxygen into the blood.
There is a right way to dry brush. Make sure to research the proper techniques and always brush towards the heart. Dry brushing helps to remove cellulite from the body by boosting oxygen into the blood. Dry brushing is not recommended for the face!
Realistically, most people will not be able to do a full body dry brushing 5-10 minutes 3-5 times a week. I suggest targeting the buttocks, thighs and belly for 30 seconds each directly before bathing.
Once you are done with your regular bathing routine, apply a coffee based body scrub. It is important to do the scrub last before ending bathing. The oils in this scrub do make the tub/shower slippery, so take caution. Caffeine tightens and provides antioxidants when applied to skin topically. This will leave your skin soft, glowy and moisturized.Here is a wonderful DYI scrub recipe.
