Fighting cellulite is right in the center of the beauty trend world. It seems like every day there is an advertisement for some new miracle product that gets rid of cellulite as I scroll down my Facebook or Twitter or Instagram. But do these trendy products really work? Some do and some don’t.

As with anything, people tend to believe anything they read on social media, or jump at the chance to buy a product endorsed by their favourite celebrity.

Before we can attempt to combat cellulite, however, we need to know what it is. If you don’t understand what cellulite is, you can’t understand how to reduce it.

What Is Cellulite?

Cellulite occurs when fat deposits push through the connective tissue beneath the skin. This causes the lumpy, dimpled appearance we are so desperate to get rid of.

Cellulite can have multiple cause factors, including:

Diet and lifestyle – people who eat too much salt, fat, carbohydrates, or not enough fiber are more likely to have cellulite

  • Metabolism – having a slower metabolism can affect the production of cellulite, whether you eat a proper diet or not
  • Hormone production – estrogen, insulin, noradrenaline, thyroid hormones, and prolactin are all active in the cellulite process; one factor that has visible effects on the hormones that are related to cellulite is age, especially in women

Now that we know a little bit more about cellulite and what factors can cause it, we can make a more educated decision on how to get rid of it.

Below, we’ve outlined some of the most popular, new ways to get rid of cellulite.

Natural Remedies

  • Coffee Grinds
  • Rosemary and/or Juniper Oil
  • Water
  • Healthy Diet and Exercise

Okay, so maybe drinking water and maintaining a healthy diet and exercise routine aren’t exactly new, but they are some of the most effective ways of preventing and combatting cellulite.

Coffee grinds, rosemary oil, and juniper oil are all substances that aid in revitalizing the skin and increasing circulation.

Products

  • Dry Brushing/Massage Bars
  • Silicone Cupping

Both of these act as temporary fixes. They will reduce the appearance of cellulite after using them, but do not actually get rid of the cellulite.

Treatments

  • Xiaflex
  • Cellfina
  • Cellulaze

Each of these procedures are unique, and can offer the reduction of cellulite. However can be quite costly and may not appeal to everyone while other still like the Venus Legacy Treatment should be performed by trained professionals.
