According to studies, around 90% of women around the world have cellulite. So if you have this skin problem, keep in mind that you are not alone. Even ladies who have a slim figure may have it at some point in their lives.

The unsightly dimply effect of cellulite on one’s legs, thighs and arms are enough to lose your confidence and affect your fashion sense. You’d want to cover up affected areas even when it goes against your style.
But there is still a way to reduce the appearance of cellulite in your legs and thighs. You can do this by practicing a combination of the following methods:

Coffee grounds aid in exfoliation of dead skin cells, while promoting the regeneration of healthier ones. Coffee is usually a primary ingredient in cellulite creams, but you can enhance speed up the reduction of cellulite by using actual coffee grounds on your skin. Furthermore, scrubbing your skin often allows it to better absorb the cellulite lotion you slather on.
- Do yoga or stretching exercises.
The best way to get rid of fat is by exercising. Fat is expelled through sweating, and we know that cellulite is basically fat so more movement allows you to sweat more. Yoga is the most recommended form of exercise for cellulite removal because it works the arms and legs more. It further tones the areas where cellulite is apparent.
