Home Remedies for Cellulite...
Here's a list of the all-time best home remedies for cellulite removal in no
particular order. Use each of these stunning natural remedies and finally get rid
of that stubborn cellulite... for good!

Cellulite? Just the mere mention of the word can make many women shiver. Looking in the
mirror and seeing cellulite developing on your own body though can be nothing short of
If you’re suffering from cellulite right now (which is highly likely since you’re here looking for
natural and home remedies for cellulite) then you’ll know what we’re talking about. Fortunately,
you can get rid of cellulite quite easily (and for good) with the natural cures we are about to list.
And you don’t need to spend a fortune either! You do, however, need to invest a certain amount
of time, money and effort if you want real results. The ultimate reward of being able to finally
wear that short skirt or bikini (and actually feel comfortable showing off your body instead of
covering it up) will certainly make it all worthwhile though.

So What Is Cellulite and What Actually Causes It?
It’s estimated that around 85% of women suffer from cellulite, and in the over 30’s group, it’s up
around 95%. Of the women who do suffer from cellulite, it would be safe to say that 100% of
them hate it with a passion! This problem also affects women of every shape and size too, which
lays to rest the mistaken belief that you must be overweight or “fat” to have cellulite. The most
prone areas of the body are the thighs, back of the legs, hips, buttocks and stomach.
Cellulite is made up of free-floating fat cells that lie just beneath the skins surface (these lumpy
little fatty deposits look just like cottage cheese or cheesecake dimples). The “cellulite dimples”
start to become really noticeable when the connective tissues that hold the skin and muscle
together develop a thick layer of this fat between them. As this “free floating” fat accumulates
and expands in size, it pushes up against the skin, which gives the lumpy appearance and
dimpling effect. Hormonal changes and a build-up of toxins and chemicals in the body,
particularly in the fat cells, are the two most common causes of this condition. Here are some

Unhealthy diet.
Fad dieting.
Sluggish metabolism.
Lack of anaerobic exercise.
Poor circulation
Lack of collagen strength and health
Thickness and color of skin.

Treating Cellulite is Big Business…
Billions of dollars are spent each year by women on cellulite reduction. Costs can range
anywhere from $20-$30 for a cellulite reduction cream, to around $5,000-$7,000 for the latest
treatments such as Cellulaze and PelleFirm. There’s also the plastic surgery option of liposuction
if you have more money than you know what to do with! But the fact is, spending a fortune on
the latest medi-spa treatment, laser treatment, exfoliated massage or firming product is a just a
waste of your hard earned money. Although you may notice an improvement (sometimes) it’s
usually only minimal and doesn’t last very long (which many women fail to realize beforehand).
You also need to continue to have regular treatments all year round, which further empties your
bank account whilst filling up your beauticians or surgeons.
So our advice for anyone who’s even thinking about going down this expensive road is, firstly…
don’t do it! But if that isn’t enough then at least talk to five independent people beforehand (in
person or online) who’ve had the procedure done or used the product you’re thinking about using
and see what they have to say. Find out if the cost is worth the reward.
Secondly, don’t listen to any sales people, beauticians or surgeons that are associated with these
products or procedures. Of course they’re going to tell you it’s the best cellulite treatment on the
planet!! And the truth is, you don’t need their expensive methods anyway. You absolutely can
get rid of your cellulite using natural and home remedies, as long as you are willing to follow
some basic guidelines and put in some consistent effort. Here’s how…

Our Top 15 Home Remedies for Cellulite Removal…
“Natural Remedies for Cellulite” #1… Detox!

We are all exposed to numerous amounts of toxins and chemicals every day from our food, water
and air. In fact, there’s virtually no way to escape them (unless you move to the Antarctic!). The
problem is, these toxins and chemicals get stored in our bodies and accumulate over time.
Besides the health risks they pose, toxins also cause unwanted problems such as cellulite. The
human body is smart. Rather than allowing toxins to accumulate in our organs, it will instead try
and store as much of them as possible in our fat cells first. So of course, the “free floating” fat
cells that are causing your cellulite are going to be chock full of these toxins! The problem is,
toxins cause fat cells to grow and swell in size, so for someone with cellulite, this is obviously
not good. As these free floating fat cells expand and push up against the skin even more, your
cellulite becomes worse and more visible.
So giving your body a powerful detox is definitely the first thing you must do to get rid of your
cellulite. Start eating a clean, green, unprocessed diet as soon as you can. This means all refined
and processed foods (and junk foods) are out and fruits and veggies are in! Get yourself a
Nutribullet (or something similar) and start juicing every day. The investment you make in one
of these appliances will definitely pay big dividends in the long run. Not only will you rid
yourself of your cellulite, you’ll be a thousand times healthier and have loads more energy to
In addition, purchase a good quality green food supplement such as wheat grass powder,
chlorella or spirulina (you can also add any of these to your smoothie mix). These green foods
are some of the most powerful detoxifiers and cleansers on the planet!

“Home Remedies for Cellulite” #2… Hydration:
Dehydration is definitely one of the main causes of cellulite. It gives the skin a shrivelled, aged
and lumpy look that’s not attractive at all. Hydration, on the other hand, smooths the skins
surface to give it a healthy glow and texture. Water also helps with detoxification. So start
drinking, at the very minimum, eight to ten glasses of filtered water every day. Try and drink
your first two glasses first thing in the morning too, before you have anything to eat or drink.
And be sure to add a slice or two of fresh lemon or cucumber (or both) to your water as well.
Lemons and cucumber are powerful detoxifiers.

“Natural Remedies for Cellulite” #3… Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV):
Apple cider vinegar is an excellent and very effective natural remedy for cellulite. It contains the
essential minerals potassium, magnesium and calcium, which all help to detox the body and
remove excess fluid (retention). ACV also helps to build up the good bacteria in your stomach
and colon. This not only improves your digestion and assimilation of food and nutrients, it also
provides a further detox and cleanse by helping your body get rid of all the toxic crap (pardon
the pun) that now needs to be removed. In addition, apple cider vinegar helps with brown fat
metabolism (the main type of body fat) so it’s also an excellent weight loss and toning aid.
When you look to purchase your ACV, it’s important that you only buy the organic apple cider
vinegar which still contains the “mother” apple (very important). This is ACV in its raw,
unprocessed state. Never, ever use distilled or processed vinegars.
So there are two ways to use the apple cider vinegar for cellulite reduction. Firstly, (and most
importantly) as an internal remedy, and secondly, as an external remedy…

For internal use, mix two tablespoons of ACV in a glass of warm, filtered water and drink five
minutes before a meal. Repeat this process 3 times a day. You may also add a teaspoon of
manuka honey to the mix if you find yourself struggling with the taste. The better option,
however, may be to take the easy-to-swallow ACV capsules instead.
For external use, make an ACV body wrap by mixing apple cider vinegar and water in equal
parts, then rubbing this solution on the affected area. Wrap the area(s) in plastic wrap and a
warm towel for 1 hour before showering.

“Home Remedies for Cellulite” #4… Cayenne Pepper:
Cayenne pepper is definitely one of our favorite “cure all” remedies. There’s virtually nothing
this powerful spice can’t help with. And cellulite reduction and weight loss are certainly at the
top of its list!
Cayenne pepper is a strong thermogenic, which means it heats up the body so it naturally burns
calories (and fat). The other big benefit of cayenne pepper is it increases blood flow and
circulation in the body (remember, poor circulation is another major cause of cellulite). And it’s
also a very potent detoxifier as well!
So be sure to take ½-1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper powder twice daily and use it in your cooking
as much as possible. Or, add a teaspoon of cayenne pepper with one teaspoon of finely grated
ginger and the juice from one freshly-squeezed lemon to a glass of warm water. Mix well and
drink this twice daily. Be aware that cayenne pepper is hot, so if you struggle with the heat then
the next best and easiest option may be taking cayenne pepper in capsule form.

“Natural Remedies for Cellulite” #5… Boron:

Many young women find themselves developing cellulite during their puberty years as their
hormones are raging and bouncing all over the place. If their hormones remain unbalanced (due
to unhealthy lifestyle habits, use of pharmaceuticals such as the pill, etc) their cellulite will
continue to advance, even when they move into their 20’s and 30’s. Then once a woman hits her
perimenopausal, menopausal and postmenopausal years, cellulite can, and usually does,
accelerate even more. New research is now beginning to show just how much of a powerful role
unbalanced hormones actually play in body fat accumulation, fluid retention, and cellulite in

So balancing your hormones is absolutely vital for getting rid of cellulite permanently.
Unbalanced hormones don’t just cause cellulite either, they cause all sorts of undesirable
“womanly problems” including gynecological problems and emotional problems. This is where
the trace mineral boron comes in…
Boron is the most important and crucial nutrient for balancing estrogen and progesterone in
women and testosterone in men… hands down! In fact, if you are suffering from any of the
health problems mentioned above then there’s a good chance you’re chronically deficient in this
essential mineral. Boron is the main precursor for all of your hormones, especially your sex
hormones. Because of the farming methods used today, our produce is almost completely void of
boron so supplementation is crucial. There are two ways to do this…
The first is by taking a boron supplement every day. You can purchase boron in 3-6 mg liquid or
capsule amounts. Take 6-10 mg’s a day for best results and continue with this indefinitely.
Remember, boron is not just a temporary treatment for cellulite, it’s a lifelong health treatment.
You can also take borax (fit for human consumption of course) as well. Borax is basically 100%
boron and much cheaper to buy, but still does exactly the same job. We recommend you take the
time to read this terrific article on boron/borax for a complete understanding of its amazing
health benefits…. The Borax Conspiracy. You will also find specific dosages and
recommendations listed in there as well.

“Home Remedies for Cellulite” #6… Maca:
The maca herb is also fantastic for correcting hormonal imbalances. It’s been used for thousands
of years to increase energy, stamina and endurance and overcome fatigue, along with increasing
sex drive and balancing hormone levels in both women and men. You can take maca in
conjunction with your boron for an added benefit if you like (not a requirement though). Maca is
especially useful for women who are going through menopause as well as suffering from
cellulite and weight gain.

“Natural Remedies for Cellulite” #7… Omega-3 and Vitamin D…
The omega-3 essential fatty acid, along with vitamin D are crucial for balancing out hormones
and stimulating brown fat metabolism (the fat you don’t want on your body!). They also activate
the production of collagen and reduce inflammation throughout the body, both of which help to
reduce the appearance of cellulite. Best source of omega-3 and vitamin D is fermented cod liver
oil. Evening primrose oil is also excellent, especially for women. In addition, getting out in the
sun (for extra vitamin D) and eating plenty of omega-3 rich fish such as salmon, herring,
mackerel and tuna is also important.
“Home Remedies for Cellulite” #8… Green Tea:

The powerful antioxidants (catechins) in green tea fight off deadly free radicals and help remove
toxins from the body. Green tea is also a potent thermogenic, so it helps you burn body fat
(including cellulite fat) for energy. These two reasons make it a perfect natural remedy for
cellulite. Try and aim for at least 3-4 cups a day for best results.

“Natural Remedies for Cellulite” #9… Zeolite:
This is one natural remedy for cellulite that not many women have heard of. But don’t be fooled
because it’s actually one of the best! Zeolite is an extremely powerful detoxifier, and the real
benefit for cellulite sufferers is it seems to specifically target toxins within the fat cells and
penetrates deep within. The scientific evidence isn’t here yet (no studies have been done) but
many women absolutely swear by zeolite for cellulite reduction. And it doesn’t seem to matter
where the cellulite is located. Thighs, hips, stomach, and back of the legs all seem to respond
very well. The only down side... it’s not overly cheap.

“Home Remedies for Cellulite” #10… Gelatin:
Poor collagen strength and health is thought to be a major cause of cellulite. A lack of collagen
also gives you that tired, dry and wrinkled skin look (which no woman wants). Thankfully,
gelatin is rich in dietary collagen. And by taking a little gelatin every day, you won’t just notice
your cellulite staring to fade, you’ll also notice your skin, hair and nails all looking much more
healthier and youthful as well. Collagen is the protein that holds all of these things together.
Gelatin also contains excellent amounts of the amino acids, glycine and proline, both of which
are vital for fat and weight regulation and peak immune function.
You can buy gelatin from virtually any supermarket, and it’s not expensive. Use it to make bone
broths and stock or use it in your soups and stews. Alternatively, just add a tablespoon to your
detox smoothie every day!

“Natural Remedies for Cellulite” #11… Skin Brushing:
Dry skin brushing is the most popular home remedy for cellulite reduction. If you’ve already
been searching for cellulite treatments, you would have come across this one (on more than one
occasion most likely). The reason we’ve put it right down on our list is because dry skin
brushing is essentially useless unless you combine it with internal remedies. Done in the right
way, skin brushing helps to increase blood flow and remove toxins from the body by stimulating
the lymphatic system (the lymph sits just underneath the skins surface where your cellulite is
located). Using this external treatment with the internal treatments listed above is very powerful
indeed. So to give yourself a dry skin brush here’s what you need to do…


Make sure your skin and brush are dry first.

· Lightly brush your skin starting from your feet and working your way up to your shoulders.
Make sure you pay extra attention to the areas with the most cellulite. Brush from the left to
the right side of your body and keep your brushing movements focused toward your heart to
promote strong blood circulation.

Do this for five to ten minutes.


Have a nice warm shower to wash away all impurities and dead skin cells.

· Be sure to do a dry skin brush once a day (every day) before showering and continue until
you’re cellulite is either gone or reduced significantly.

“Home Remedies for Cellulite” #12… Coffee Scrub and Wrap:

Personal trainer and weight loss guru, Jillian Michaels, from Biggest Loser fame recommends
coffee scrubs and wraps for reducing cellulite. The reason they work so well is because of the
caffeine, which effectively increases blood flow and tightens and firms the skin. Coffee also
exfoliates to quickly remove dead skin cells and regenerate new healthy cells.
So for a coffee scrub here’s what you do…
Combine ¼ cup of good quality coffee grounds with three tablespoons of raw sugar and two
tablespoons of melted organic coconut oil. Mix well to form a paste then store in a glass jar.
Take a small amount then rub and massage firmly into the affected area for 2-3 minutes. Rinse
off with warm water. Repeat this 3-5 times a week and continue until your cellulite is gone.
For a coffee wrap here’s what you do…
Warm up ½ cup of coffee grounds and a dash of extra-virgin olive oil (enough to make a paste)
by placing in the microwave for 20-30 seconds. Evenly spread the mixture over your cellulite
and then cover it with some plastic wrap. Leave on for 30 minutes before rinsing off with warm
water. Do this 2-3 times a week for best results.

“Natural Remedies for Cellulite” #13… Detox Bath:

Detox baths are a great way to get rid of those awful toxins lurking in your fat cells. Of course,
getting rid of toxins means getting rid of cellulite too so be sure you give this one a go. At the
very least, a nice detox bath is extremely soothing and relaxing after a hard day’s work!
For your detox bath, dissolve ¼ cup of epsom salt, ¼ cup of baking soda, ¼ cup of sea salt and
1/3 of a cup of apple cider vinegar in a nice hot bath. Soak in and relax for at least 30 minutes.
Do this once or twice a week.
Note: After a detox bath you may feel quite tired and even light headed. This is normal (all of
those nasty toxins have just been pulled out through the pores of your skin). For these reasons,
it’s recommended you don’t have your detox bath while home alone or at the start of the day.

“Home Remedies for Cellulite” #14… Coconut Oil:
Coconut oil is one of the best all-round health elixirs on God’s green earth! There’s pretty much
not a single health problem that can’t be helped or fixed with a little coconut oil. And fat
reduction and cellulite reduction are definitely two of them!
Lots of women have had great success using coconut oil both as an internal and external remedy
for cellulite. For internal benefit, simply consume 1-2 tablespoons of raw, virgin coconut oil
three times daily. For external benefit, use in conjunction with grapefruit oil by rubbing on the
cellulite affected areas for 3-5 minutes after a detox bath or dry skin brush/shower. Coconut oil
helps hydrate the skin while the grapefruit essential oil contains high amounts of the antiinflammatory enzyme bromelain, which helps to break down cellulite. So to make all you do is
combine 30 drops of grapefruit essential oil with one cup of organic virgin coconut oil. Store in a
glass container and use as needed.

“Natural Remedies for Cellulite” #15… Aerobic and Anaerobic Exercise:

Cellulite is essentially a fat, so removing the fat from your body will help to remove cellulite.
There are two ways to effectively do this…
1. Burn the fat (aerobic)
2. Build and tone the muscle (anaerobic)

You really need to incorporate both of these if you want to completely remove cellulite. The
other bonus is you end up with a nicely shaped and toned body that you can be proud of.
So to burn the fat it’s easy… just get “huffy and puffy” for 40 minutes a day 3 times a week.
This can be any form of exercise… a brisk walk, cycling, aerobics, it doesn’t really matter as
long as you get yourself to a point where you're puffing but could still carry on a conversation.
Aerobic exercise is also best done first thing in the morning before you’ve eaten, so that way,
your body consumes body fat for energy rather than food. It is recommended that you have your
cayenne pepper and green tea about an hour beforehand though as these are potent fat burners
(thermogenics) and will also give you a nice energy boost.
To build and tone the muscle, it’s a little more involved. Weight training is the only real and
effective way to build and tone muscle. The other benefit of weight training is it burns body fat,
so it’s technically an anaerobic and aerobic type of exercise. So you actually get the best of both
worlds with this, which is absolutely perfect for anyone with cellulite. If you’ve had no
experience with weight training before then it would be advisable to find someone who’s
experienced in this or find a good gym that can help you. You have the option of doing free
weights on your own or group classes such as Les Mills Grit or Plyo. Both are excellent and
extremely effective. Once again, be sure to have a teaspoon of cayenne pepper and a pot of green
tea an hour before your workout for an extra boost and fat burning aid.

“Home Remedies for Cellulite” Final Word…
Well, that ends this article on natural remedies for cellulite. And yes we know, there are more
remedies and treatments out there for cellulite reduction, but we’ve found feedback to be quite
poor with these so we’ve purposely left them out. You have more than enough to choose from
here anyway. So try and utilize and use as many of the remedies listed above as you can for best
results. And please, make a decision to make the internal remedies we’ve listed a lifestyle (and
lifetime) choice rather than just a temporary fix for your cellulite. Remember, these home
remedies aren’t just about getting rid of your cellulite and giving you a smokin hot looking bod
(joke), they’re also about making you a much healthier and happier person as well.
So get out there and go for it!
Good luck and all the best.
