Some of these natural cellulite treatments might help you improve the appearance of your skin.

You may be able to improve the appearance of your cellulite. And you don’t have to spend absurd amounts of money on expensive products that will empty your wallet. No, that’s completely unnecessary because there are lots of natural cellulite treatments out there.

In today’s article we’ll tell you everything you need to know to prepare some popular homemade cellulite treatments. But you need to keep something very important in mind: in order for these natural treatments to work properly, you have to thoroughly exfoliate your skin before you apply them.

Frequent exfoliation of the areas where you have cellulite may help you. Some say it helps keep these toxins form being absorbed by the bloodstream. The body is then able to remove them.

So the message is clear. Any home treatment for cellulite must always be accompanied by an exfoliating massage.

First step for cellulite treatments: exfoliation

Loofas used for exfoliating.
This is simple. All you need is a little olive or sunflower oil to rub onto the areas affected by cellulite. Leave it on for 15 minutes and then take a shower, using hot water (unless you have spider or varicose veins, in which case you should only use warm water). Scrub the area well using mild soap and a loofa or natural bristle brush.

This exfoliating massage removes dead skin cells and opens up your pores. This helps cellulite treatments better penetrate the layers of the skin. And remember, after you exfoliate you always need to moisturize, and regenerative oils like olive or rosehip oil are ideal.

Step two (option 1): lemon and olive oil

Some olive oil in a stainless steel spoon.
Peel several lemons and place the peels in a jar, covering them with olive oil. Seal the jar and let this sit in a cool, dark place for a week. Make sure the jar or bottle you use has been sterilized previously to keep your oil from becoming contaminated with the traces of other substances.

After a week you can open the bottle, strain off the oil and add a little more plain olive oil to dilute it.

Recall that lemon should always be diluted because it’s highly caustic due to its astringent properties, and it could irritate your skin. You should also only use it at night because citrus oils may be photosensitive and can cause the skin to burn more easily if you’re exposed to direct sunlight.

Step two (option 2): avocado pit

One of our cellulite treatments involves avocados.
You can also make an oil for this treatment using an avocado pit. Cut four large avocado pits into small pieces – the smaller they are, the better. Remember that avocado pits are very hard, and you’ll need to cut them very finely to avoid damaging your food processor. If you don’t have a food processor, you can use a cheese grater.

Now put the chopped or crushed seeds in a jar and add some olive, almond, or sunflower oil – whatever you prefer or have on hand. Cover this mixture and let it sit for three days in a dark, cool place. Once this time has passed, you can place it in the refrigerator to keep it from getting mold.

Step three

The last step is to apply one of these treatments to the areas of your skin where cellulite appears for a few minutes, and to repeat them often – at least once a week.

Now that you know how to make these simple cellulite treatments, you have some valuable weapons for your beauty routine.
