5 tips to beat cellulite
Cellulite is a problem for many and is seemingly incurable.
This is in fact a myth, and while it might be difficult to prevent or budge, it’s not impossible with a few healthy living and natural beauty tips.
1. Exercise regularly
Even athletes can have cellulite, but working out regularly will help improve circulation, removing excess fluid and toning muscles.
Skin will therefore look smoother, regardless of any cellulite.
Aerobic exercises that boost circulation and lymphatic drainage are particularly helpful when undertaken between 30 and 60 minutes five times a week.
2. Dry body brush
Dry body brushing is not only great for removing dead skin and exfoliating, it also helps improve circulation.
This is useful in getting the blood flowing around the body, tackling problem areas and breaking up cellulite.
Use circular motions and a body brush two or three times a week and the effects should be noticeable.
3. Try nutritional supplements
Nutritional supplements can be used to ensure that you’re getting the correct levels of vitamins and minerals, each of which is picked especially to tackle your particular issue - in this case cellulite.
4. Watch your diet
Your diet is perhaps the most important thing you’ll need to reassess if you want to combat cellulite.
Foods high in saturated and trans fats, are best to be reduced, as well as overly sugary food, excess salt and too many starchy carbohydrates.
It’s also best to cut down on caffeine, as this has been linked to increased or stubborn cellulite. More than three cups a day of tea or coffee is generally not recommended.
5. Drink enough water
Water is nature’s miracle cure, helping to flush out nasty toxins and keep the body functioning well.
Drinking around 1.5 litres a day will assist in maintaining a healthy lymphatic system, to remove waste products.
Too much water, however, can cause swelling under the skin, making cellulite appear worse.

- The Great Pomegranate Seed Oil Hi Kianouche, Thank you for your message. I would recommend to mix pomegranate oil with Marula oil for what you are looking to treat. A few drops of antioxidant-rich Marula oil mixed with Pomegranate oil can boost efficacy and help restore your skin’s functions in perfect equilibrium. Long term use may visibly minimise pores, brighten the skin, protect it from the oxidative damage caused by pollution, tones down pigmentation and assists with scar tissue healing. Hope this helps :)
