What if we say there is one remedy, a homemade cream, that will get rid of cellulite, without you having to spend a fortune on chemical products or having to drink any green sludge? Sounds too good to be true, right?
This herbal mask to get rid of cellulite does exactly that! That's right, no more, gnarly dimpled creases, and it's definitely going to be - hello beach-ready bod!
Cellulite happens due to fat and toxin deposits beneath the skin layer. This Ayurvedic mask to treat cellulite works by stimulating blood flow, flushing toxins, increasing skin cell turnover and promoting healthy skin!
Coconut oil, shaved beeswax, witch hazel, juniper oil and cypress oil are the ingredients included in this homemade cream. These are definitely the best remedies that you can use to get rid of cellulite.
Juniper oil is diuretic that stimulates blood flow. Cypress oil flushes out toxins from the skin and relieves water retention.
Witch hazel tightens the skin. Beeswax infuses the skin with much-needed moisture. Coconut oil is rich with antioxidants that treat cellulite and smoothen the skin!
As promising as this homemade cream sounds, the duration of time it takes for the mask to show results can differ with each individual.
So, here is a step-by-step guide on how to get rid of cellulite naturally.
Take a double boiler or fill a pan with water and place a glass bowl over it with the ingredients to melt in it. Add 3/4th cup of pure coconut oil and 2 tablespoons of beeswax. Let the mixture heat for 5 minutes, then turn off the flame. Allow the solution to cool.
Add three tablespoons of witch hazel to the solution, and using a spoon, stir it well. Witch hazel affects the skin on the cellular level, sloughing off the dead skin layer, closing pores and stimulating lymphatic flow.
Next, add 10 drops of juniper oil and 20 drops of cypress oil to the mixture, stir well until all the ingredients blend. Transfer the solution into an air-tight bottle and close the lid tight. Let the mixture hibernate for 24 hours.
Then, add 5 to 10 drops of grapefruit oil to the mixture. Its citrusy smell will instantly relieve stress, calm your senses and draw out impurities from your skin. It is optional however.
Take a dry loofah or loofah mitten, preferably boar-bristled one, and give your skin a thorough rub down, starting from your feet, working your way up to your neck. Do this once a week before shower. It will stimulate blood flow and treat cellulite.
Take shower as usual. Pat dry. Shower opens the pores, allowing the skin to absorb the nourishing cream better, accelerating the healing process.
When your skin is still slightly moist, massage the herbal mask to get rid of cellulite into your skin. Keep kneading your skin in vigorous movement to stimulate the flow and allow the solution to absorb better. This remedy can help get rid of cellulite faster if followed regularly.
Things To Remember
- Apply this solution twice, once after shower and once before going to bed.
- Store the leftover mask in an air-tight bottle and keep it in a cool, dry place.
- Tweak the ingredients to suit your skin type. If you have excessively dry skin, increase the beeswax content and vice versa.
What Will Happen?
Within a couple of weeks of trying these natural ingredients, you will notice a visible lightening in cellulite. Plus, your skin will become super-smooth and supple as well.
