But unfortunately almost 90% fall prey to the orange-peel like skin on their lower body (don’t worry,you are not the only one). It’s not that only fat people get cellulite, in fact many slim and sexy celebs have admitted to having cellulite on their body.
What is cellulite and why do you get it?
Cellulite is a condition in which fat gets deposited under your skin, giving it a dimpled and a lumpy appearance. Yeah, know you know why your thighs and your butt looks so odd? Say hello to cellulite. It usually occurs after puberty and is referred to as cottage cheese skin and orange peel syndrome.
Well now you must be wondering where the hell did you get it from? Just try to imagine all the processed food that you must have eaten till now (thinking it’s ok just to have one this time), the salty fries, processed meat products, refined sugars and salts, alcohol and cigarettes. All this stuff is obviously not present in your body at this moment, but it has left behind something dreadful known as ‘Toxins’ in your body.
Your body is not able to eliminate all these toxins and they keep on accumulating while you keep on having the same old stuff every now and then. Do you even think that your body needs to be detoxed from time to time? Well when you don’t, that’s when the cellulite starts appearing gradually.
So it’s a no brainer that to remove cellulite form the body you must get rid of the toxins first. Let me share some easy and cool tips to get rid of your cellulite naturally.
Detoxify Your Body
Cleaning up the toxins from the cellular level is difficult but with proper steps this can happen gradually. Consuming foods that are rich in anti-oxidants is the 1st step that you should be taking to fight cellulite.
Green tea is one magic potion that you should include in your daily diet. Green tea is rich in anti-oxidants and it helps to speed up the metabolism, inhibits fat absorption and regulates glucose uptake. It contains an ingredient called theobromine which helps to stimulate the release of stored fat in your body. Drink minimum 3 cups a day to start getting rid of toxins as well as fat.
Increase the intake of fresh fruits and vegetables in your daily diet. These fresh fruits and vegetables which are naturally alkaline in nature attracts the acidic waste the body produces. This will help to get the toxicity out from deep within your cells and tissues.
If you have not been that great in eating a variety of vegetables and fruits then don’t rush into it as your body needs time to adjust to the change and remember that the toxic waste that is pulled out of your cells and tissues also needs to be flushed out properly.
Gradually increase your intake your veggies and have a proper diet plan in place. Don’t over do it, minimum 2 servings per day should be good enough to start with and you can have fruits for breakfast and before dinner. What you need the best is just not to think of having any junk food all this while. I know, it’s going to be a bit difficult, but you need to start somewhere.
Flush Out The Bad Stuff
The toxins that are pulled out from deep within your cells and tissues needs to properly eliminated from your body. What do you think will happen when the toxins are not flushed out? Yes of course, they will resettle and all your efforts to flush out those toxins will go in vain.
Make sure that you are not dehydrated even for a moment. Drink enough water and if you are not in a habit of starting your day with water then start doing it! Better late than never. If you really dislike how your mouth feels when water is the first thing that you have in the morning then add some squeeze some lemon drops into it and try. Which ever way it is you will get used to it, trust me.
Water along with fluids from fruits and vegetables will help in flushing the toxins out of your body. Keep this healthy habit to prevent further occurrence of cellulite.

Women as such are not muscular in nature and it’s easy for cellulite to appear on the back of the legs and below buttocks where the muscle concentration is poor.

Even if you are not going to the gym then you can do some free squats at home and some lunges as well. It’s always fun if you have a good partner along, so try to get your girl friend in who is also having cellulite trouble.
Brushing Your Skin Helps Too
It’s all about releasing the toxins from the deep within. When you are having a bath, use a loofah or some skin brush and brush your thighs and buttocks in slow circular movements. Start form the lower thighs and work your way up. This also helps to breaks down the fatty deposits and thus restructures your skin and helps to improve the appearance.
Don’t miss out on the opportunity to massage your thighs in the same manner while applying creams while you are getting ready to sleep.
