The superficial fascia is a layer of connective tissue under the skin that includes fat and it is where cellulite forms. Due to injuries, improper exercise and inactivity, adhesions in the fascia would form contributing to the rippled look of the skin.
Thus, the superficial fascia becomes more coarse, thickened and less flexible. Some therapists perform myofascial massage, which is a type of massage that can soothe this layer of connective tissue and can help with some joint and muscle problems that are associated with imbalances in the fascia.
Coffee scrubs are beneficial as well in reducing cellulite and loose skin. The massage and exfoliation stimulate lymph/ blood flow and the caffeine in coffee benefits the skin with its tightening effect.
For the coffee scrub, you will need quarter a cup of coffee grounds, 3 tablespoons of coconut oil and 3 tablespoons of sugar. Mix the ingredients to create a paste and massage into your skin with firm pressure for several minutes, then wash it. Do this 2 or three times a week and you will see results within a week or two.
Kettlebells are one of the best ways for workout; they are good particularly for the stomach, thighs, hips and buttocks. They increase blood flow in these areas, which can help get rid of cellulite. Kettlebells are very effective in burning fat and building muscles, and this leads to minimizing the appearance of cellulite.
There is a theory saying that consuming the wrong fats is the main cause for the imbalance in the connective tissue leading to the occurrence of cellulite. On the other hand, consuming enough omega 3 fatty acids help reduce cellulite. Another good remedy for cellulite is detox baths, which are relaxing and very good for the skin because toxin build- up in the skin tissues results in cellulite.
