Natural treatments to get rid of cellulite

Dimples on the face are usually considered attractive; dimples on your thighs and buttocks, not so much. Cellulite is very common for women and has been for years. That's why our grandmothers found ways to deal with it.

Cellulite shows up when a pocket of fat beneath the skin pushes on the connective tissue, creating a cottage cheese effect. Women are particularly prone to cellulite because their connective tissue is softer than that of men. Usually the troublesome bumps appear on the buttocks, hips, and thighs.

Home remedies to treat cellulite

There are a number of methods for fighting cellulite, including some which use potatoes, sea salt and oils.

  • To make an effective massage oil, pour a little more than 200 millilitres (3/4 cup) of wheat germ oil over a handful of fresh ivy leaves and let steep for two weeks in a sealed container stored in a warm location. Strain and mix in two drops of rosemary oil. Rub into your trouble areas daily using circular motions.
  • Other oils such as cinnamon, lavender, chamomile, clove, rosemary and sandalwood can be mixed with a base oil (such as almond oil) to create a massage oil for cellulite patches.
  • Potatoes possess remarkable healing powers, including the ability to tighten your connective tissue. To take advantage of this, peel one raw potato and spread thin slices onto the skin affected by cellulite. Cover with a cotton cloth and let it work for 15 minutes.
  • Create your own mixture to tighten the subcutaneous tissue by boiling about 45 millilitres (three tablespoons) of ivy leaves in two litres (quarts) of water for two minutes, then strain. Moisten cotton cloths with the cooled liquid and apply to the affected areas once a day for 20 minutes.
  • Massaging sea salt into your moist skin can also be effective. Do it after taking a shower, then rinse off with warm water.
