Dimples look cute on cheeks but not as much when they are on thighs, hands, tummy or tushy. The dimpled looking skin that occurs on the back of our hands, thighs, belly or buttocks is known as cellulite.

Cellulite form due to the accumulation of fats, proteins and toxins which were not eliminated by the body. These fats stored deep inside the body pushes up against the outer connective tissue (i.e. the epidermal layer of skin or epidermis) and gives a dimpled appearance.

It doesn’t matter whether a person is skinny or plump, most of the women out there are plagued by cellulite.

Although you should cherish your body and accept the natural flaws that come with it, if you are one who desires to have a leaner and firmer body, try out these natural ways to reduce your dimpled skin (i.e. Cellulite).

Brushing and Massaging:

Dry brushing and massaging your skin with essential oils can increase blood flow in the particular region which has higher cellulite content. This, in turn, stirs up lymphatic drainage and slowly reduces the stocked-up cellulite. Just take out a few minutes every day from your daily schedule and use a skin brush with thick bristles to slowly massage the particular area.

Exfoliation Is The Key:

Regular exfoliation or practicing it on alternative days increases the blood circulation in the affected parts of the body. It rejuvenates the skin, removes dead skin cells, stimulates blood circulation, makes your body susceptible to absorb the moisture and in turn smoothens and tightens the skin. You can try some homemade scrubs like coffee or sugar scrubs to get that smooth look.

Regular Workout:

Try to shed a few extra pounds. You may opt for regular exercises like a cardio workout, high-intensity training or simply sweat yourself through zumba dancing or enjoy an outdoor sport like tennis. This will help in toning and tightening the cells containing cellulite and giving an overall healthy appearance.

Healthy Dietary Choices:

Imbalance in hormones and toxins flare up the cellulite in the body. Maintain a well-balanced diet by adding whole grains, fresh fruits and vegetables, which will gradually help to balance the hormones, check your calories and reduce cellulite.

Hydrate your body:

Dehydration can make your skin look dull and shrivelled and can increase the dimpled appearance of the cellulite. Drink plenty of water to keep your body hydrated and flush out the harmful toxins from the body to enhance a healthy glow and strengthen the immune system.
