3 cellulite-fighting products you can make at home

19 Mar

celluliteCellulite, also known as “orange peel syndrome” and “cottage cheese skin”, is a condition that gives the skin a dimpled, lumpy appearance. It is most often found on the thighs and the buttocks and is more common among women than men.

The causes are still unclear as to how cellulite is formed but some of the theories point to: hormonal factors, genetics, lifestyle, and clothing.

Many cellulite treatments are available in the market but, to date, none of them have support in the scientific or medical community.

And, since commercial anti-cellulite therapies may be pricey yet ineffective, it may a good idea to try out remedies that have been reported to work but won’t wreak havoc on your budget!

Here are three cellulite-busting products that are super easy to make and…
…right in the comfort of your kitchen.

DIY Product #1: Moisturizing Caffeine Scrub

What you need:

1 cup of sugar

2 cups of any of these terrific oils: coconut oil, olive oil, sunflower oil (There are other oils you can use if you do your research!)

1 cup of ground coffee

Between 5 to 15 drops of essential or fragrance oils of your choice

How to make:
  1. Mix all ingredients in a blender and blend away at medium speed.
  2. Once you get an even mixture, your cream is ready to use!
  3. Put in pretty jar and label.
How to use:

Pat yourself half dry with a towel after your shower and then massage your caffeine cream on problem areas. Pay special attention to your tummy, thighs and buttocks. Use every day for best results.

DIY Products #2: InstaCoffee Lotion

What you need:photo1(1)

2 tablespoons of coffee

½ cup of lotion (choose one with a scent that goes well with coffee)

How to make:

Just mix the ingredients together until you get an even consistency. It just can’t get easier than that.

How to use:

Use just like you would any other lotion but, again, paying special attention to problem areas! Of course, if you don’t want to step out of the house smelling of coffee, it may be prudent to stay at home.

DIY Products #3: Massage Oil

What you need:

1 cup of olive or almond oil

3 tablespoon of fennel

3 tablespoon rosemary

3 tablespoons of cayenne powder

1 teaspoon jojoba oil

How to make:

Mix all the ingredients (except the jojoba oil) together in a jar. Make sure the jar lid is tightly closed. Shake the jar at least once daily for at least one week (you can go for two weeks if you like) and, once the base oil looks fairly infused with the other ingredients, use a cheesecloth to strain the oil into a clear container. Add in the jojoba oil to stabilize your mixture.

How to use:

Use as you would any other massage oil but paying attention to your trouble areas.

Now that you have products that you can make at home, don’t forget to also add in having a good diet and regular exercise to minimize the appearance of cellulite.
