The Dreaded "Cottage Cheese" Thighs! June 19 2014

Did you know that 90% of all women will deal with cellulite? Cellulite occurs when the connective tissue pulls down on fat causing the fat to bulge under the skin. Diet and exercise play an important role in reducing the appearance of cellulite.

If you want to reduce cellulite you need to detox your body. Stay away from nicotine and caffeine, reduce your intake of salt and fat and drink plenty of water. Eat nutrient rich foods like berries and nuts and add plenty of glucosamine, B vitamins and essential fatty acids to your diet. Onions are also a great food to combat cellulite because they act as a natural diuretic releasing water buildup from skin cells.

Don't forget to exercise. The less fat and more muscle you have will make cellulite disappear. Muscle will stretch the skin and smooth out the dimpled appearance.

Increase circulation and break up the fat by doing daily massages to troubled areas using a cellulite reducing cream and using a body brush in the shower or bath to help increase circulation. Use aromatherapy oils in your bath to stimulate your system: Sage, cypress, and juniper essential oils added to your bath aid with cellulite reduction by stimulating your system.
