Time to talk about something we all hate, cellulite. One of the most frustrating things a woman can deal with. It seems to appear out of nowhere. Right? Like one day, you are rocking the booty shorts feeling cute- next thing, you are trying to make an extra-large men’s t-shirt look cute at the pool to cover cellulite areas.
From my personal experience, if I don’t drink enough water then I end up with cellulite on my triceps and under my buttocks which is two very common areas for women, because women tend to store fat in triceps (back of the arm), low belly, hamstrings (back of legs) as well as our hips.
No matter how much cardio you do and how much spinach you eat.. it still sticks with you. Has that ever happened to you? That’s because you need to switch to these tips.
So, what is cellulite!? It is when the fat cells congregate under the skin and create a dimple-like appearance above the skin. Some cellulite is just in our genes, but most of it can be treated by these following tips.

If you don’t drink enough water, you will end up holding more water which can make your cellulite look worse. Staying hydrated will keep things flowing and will be able to help the appearance of cellulite. So, try to drink at least 8 glasses of water daily. I personally try drinking a full gallon a day, especially if I eat bad.
2. CLEAN UP YOUR EATING:
Having bad eating habits will never do us any good. Its ok to have your cheat meal or cheat day but on a normal basis, try getting at least 3 good meals of good, clean whole foods. I recommend a lot of greens, fruits, whole grains and lean proteins to keep your body good on the inside and out.
3. LIFT WEIGHTS:
When you lift, your muscles will grow and help tighten the skin, which will help diminish the appearance of cellulite. Don’t be scared to go heavy, the heavier the better but always remember good form over all! I do recommend a mix of isolation and compound movements to really get all areas and push yourself.
4. FOAM ROLL/MASSAGE/ DRY BRUSH:
Working on breaking down that hard tissue and flushing your system with water right after will help get the toxins out so you will get your smooth appearance back. I recommend to foam roll after your workout and massage cellulite areas in the shower with warm water. Be sure to drink water after this to flush out the toxins.
5. ESSENTIAL OILS:
This is something I actually just decided to try out. I got sick of buying all the creams that have a bunch of chemicals in them. So, I took the natural route and decided to order grapefruit, rosemary, fennel and lemongrass. I mix them together with a little coconut oil and massage it in, where it is needed.
Try these tips for at least 2 weeks and you will see the difference!
