    While Cellulite does not pose a real health risk (although it can be an indicator of poor health habits) it’s still not something many of us want to see when we look down our body!

    Have you ever scratched your upper arm in the filtered light of a window at dawn only to look down and see – fingers pressed into the skin -  faint evidence of burgeoning cellulite?


    That would sure stink, wouldn't it?

    Ways to Get Rid of Cellulite Without Breaking a Sweat

    1. Coffee for Cellulite – On Your Body, Not In Your Mouth.

    So here’s a conundrum for you. Coffee in your mouth could be a cellulite culprit, but coffee on your body is definitely a cellulite buster. Doesn't seem fair, does it? Let’s pretend I didn't say anything about how drinking coffee could cause cellulite, okay? Because never, ever, no never would I ask you to give up your coffee. However, here are two things you can do with it that don’t involve drinking.

    • Turn the Coffee into a Shower Scrub: After you've made your morning pot, place the grinds in a bowl and cover them with olive oil, sweet almond oil, grape seed oil (or any kind of oil you’d like, really … just try to stick to cold-pressed and avoid ANYTHING that’s partially-hydrogenated). Stir the mixture and let it sit for a few minutes to allow the coffee time to infuse into the oil. In the shower, scrub your body with this mixture, focusing on the tricky dimply parts. Rinse well.
    • Kick Your Lotion Up a Notch with Coffee: Take some dry coffee grounds and toss them back into the grinder or food processor. Let them grind into a fine powder. Add this powder to your favorite lotion and apply to troublesome areas. This is best used at night or anytime you’re going to be home for a good block of time. Otherwise, the coffee might show on the fancy little white dress you chose to wear for date night. You’re so hot.


    2. Make Your Own Massage Oils

    This is actually super easy, and all you need is an essential oil or two and a carrier oil (like jojoba, sweet almond, olive, or coconut oil). For every 1/4 c. of carrier oil, use 10-12 drops total of essential oil. Combine them well in a glass jar or bottle and massage into icky cellulite-y spots for 10 minutes a day.

    Essential oils that treat cellulite most effectively (the top two are the absolute best):

    • Juniper
    • Fennel
    • Grapefruit
    • Rosemary
    • Sage
    • Lemon
    • Cypress

    3. Dry Brush Your Body Daily

    Invest in a good body brush. You’ll be glad you did. Make it a daily habit to give yourself a good body brushing, starting at your toes and always moving upwards (you want to brush toward your heart to really help with revving up circulation).

    This is, perhaps, the most helpful, healthful tip I’ve given. Ever.

    Dry brushing detoxifies like nothing else, exfoliates all the bad stuff of a HUGE portion of your skin, gives you energy, aids in skin cell renewal,  increases circulation and, of course, helps your body break up cellulite.

    Just like any habit, it’s one you have to consciously form, but doing this daily will seriously – and I mean this – change your life for the better.

    I don’t have a particular favorite. I bought a cheap body brush at Walgreen about two years ago. It seems to work fine, but I’m open to recommendations if anyone has any.
