cellulite is mostly genetics, although if you tone the areas really tight it can definitely help the visible parts of cellulite, stronger muscles underneath your fat deposits can help smooth out the area overall. it's not something that people can easily fix.
Found few things online that claim to help, but I'd avoid most spa treatments, creams and other things mainly cause I've had friends try it in the past with no luck but with excess bills of thousands of dollars. These things seem like it's a good idea to do for health even if it doesn't help very much. Also I'd probably recommend a good exfoliating shower scrub product like Salux towels for bathing.
* Go on a home detox diet. This means eating lots of fruits and leafy greens. Make them organic when possible.
* Avoid junk food, diet soda, processed food and saturated fats such as butter and animal fats.
* Avoid toxins like excessive alcohol and cigarettes.
* Drink a lot of water to hydrate your body and flush out toxins. Eight to ten glasses a day are recommended.
* Brush your skin daily, preferably before bathing. The best is a Tampico Skin Brush (compare prices) made with natural agave plant fiber. This simple technique stimulates blood and lymph flow, removes dead skin cells and encourages new cell growth. (Skin brushing is also inexpensive. You can get a good quality body brush for $6-$8.
* Maintain your healthiest weight.
* Finish your daily shower with a cold rinse to tone your skin.
* Take Glucosamine supplements (compare prices), which helps your body repair the dermis and connective tissue. (also great for joint support)
* Bathe in a comfortable, warm (not too hot!) seaweed bath to re-mineralize and increase circulation, ideally three times a week.
While regular treatment cannot completely rid the body of cellulite, it can help prevent further deterioration of the tissues and reduce both pain and swelling.
