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.

- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you Emiliano for your comment. In this blog we are referring more to oils, more so than butters and while we agree with you Shea is an excellent emollient for hair, it's consistency is more buttery and it is used more as a leave-in remedy to smooth hair texture. We have suggested Coconut oil as it helps slow down hair loss by penetrating deep into your hair shaft to prevent protein loss, which in turn prevents breakage. When applied to your scalp, it simultaneously moisturises and removes build-up around your hair follicles to encourage hair growth and is one of base oils always used in Ayurveda for hair treatments. As this post is more focused for hair and not for skin, the comedogenic scale applies to skin/pores and not hair follicles. Thank you again for your feedback.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Hello Zu, yes hair loss can be very stressful and this in turn amplifies the cause almost.. Perhaps with Covid, your system may have been depleted of nutrients and fighting the virus can take its toll on your immune system, so sometimes our hair and skin suffer when we have been ill. We really believe in oils for scalp massage as the best way to revive the growth and help regenerate the follicles. It may be also worth at looking at internal supplements and making sure you are getting enough of omega oils, perhaps plant based such as nuts and seeds in your diet. For external oil treatment, would recommend the Really Good Hair oil which we create with Brahmi, this herb is known to help bring the scalp back to health and improve growth. Biotin is also a good vitamin to take as a supplement to help with hair growth so do look into that. So hope these tips will be helpful for you.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?I, am very surprised that your article did not include Organic Shea Butter and that coconut oil, is your number one choice for hair growth and thickness. According to the comedogenic scale, coconut oil, has a rating of (4), on a scale from (0), to (5), on clogging your pores. Why would anyone put coconut oil, on their hair or skin knowing the pores will get clogged up. Shea Butter, on the other hand has a (0), rating on the comedogenic scale, which is great for dry hair and skin and won't clog up your pores.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you for your very informative article. I suffered COVID in December, 2020, and in February I started experience extreme hair loss and all my hair jus falls like a person who is under going Chemo therapy. It's very depressing. Had to cut off all my hair and even the little that is left is falling off daily not sure what to do. Please suggest something.
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) You can use carrot oil only in small drops on your skin in the morning/during the day since it is highly potent. Carrot oil is rich in vitamins and is a very effective moisturiser. You can also mix a few drops of Carrot Oil with your favorite face cream. You can do that at least twice a week or include it in your daily skincare routine. Hope this helps.
- Carrot Oil for Face Can I use the carrot oil in the day time? Because I am using Vitamin c serum in the night. Please advise. Thanks
