Nobody wants cellulite, but approximately 80%-90% of women have it. If you’re reading this, you likely fall into this category. There is no way to get rid of cellulite completely, but you can apply techniques to make it less noticeable – significantly. We share tips, products, tools, and exercises in this 4-step anti-cellulite routine.
Water for Firm Skin
To reduce cellulite, you should always stay hydrated. So many celebrities say it's their secret to beautiful skin. Whether you believe them or not, hydrated skin is firmer and more elastic, which reduces the appearance of cellulite and prevents future scars from occurring. According to dermatologists, water also flushes the system to help you achieve that dewy look.
If you aren’t a fan of water, consider adding fruits, like lemon and strawberry; veggies like cucumber, or herbs such as lavender and mint. You can also consume coconut water, which is both flavorful and packed with electrolytes.
Use a Good Anti-Cellulite Treatment
Topical treatments can do wonders to reduce the appearance of cellulite if you know which brands and ingredients to look for. You’ll love Life’s Butter’s anti-cellulite creams and coffee scrubs, made from powerful plant-based ingredients and Kona coffee. Best of all, these products are safe for all skin types – dry skin types don’t need to fear the nourishing ingredients from Life’s Butter Coffee Scrubs (when applying in the shower, apply it safely). Combination and oily skin types can fully embrace the luxurious ingredients from Life’s Butter Anti-Cellulite Cream.
Remove Cellulite with Dry Brushing
No anti-cellulite skincare routine is complete without dry brushing. There are many tools on the market for dry brushing, but we recommend using a fine-bristle brush to prevent irritation. Even the most sensitive skin can benefit from Life’s Butter anti-cellulite dry brush, formulated with fine, natural bristles.
Now for the million-dollar question: do you need an anti-cellulite cream, coffee scrub, and dry brush?
Each of these products works differently to achieve a common goal.
Start by applying the coffee scrub to damp skin in circular motions. This will help slough off dead skin cells that make it difficult for products to absorb into the skin.
Use the dry brush for better exfoliation and to help stimulate blood flow.
Rinse off the product and follow up with the anti-cellulite cream. By now, your skin is fully prepped for the potent ingredients and scientific formula this product has to offer. Apply the cream to your skin gently and in circular motions.
Exercise for Cellulite Reduction
The final step in your 4-step anti-cellulite routine is exercise. Even if you hate exercising, it is an effective way to minimize cellulite. Lower body exercises improve strength and build muscle, which can help prevent and reduce cellulite. Some moves work better than others, so we’ll share the 5 workout moves that are tried and true:
- Curtsy lunges for glutes, calves, and core
- Lateral lunges for glutes, hamstrings, and calves
- Reverse lunges for glutes, hamstring, and core
- Glute bridge for hamstrings and core
- Squats for glutes, hamstrings, core, abs, spinal muscles, calves
Incorporating these four steps into your routine will not completely eliminate cellulite. Nevertheless, if you are consistent, you can reduce these unseemly scars from your body with this effective routine.
