Cellulite occurs in both men and women but is more common in women because women are more likely to have certain types of fat. Cellulite is more common around the thighs and buttocks but it can also be found on breasts, abdomen and upper arms. To be honest with my readers, the actual cause of cellulite is not known. However it is believed that hormonal factors, dietary habits, genetics, lifestyle and clothing have a role in the development of cellulite. In order to avoid the worst conditions, you should take necessary steps to treat your cellulite on early stage. Below are some home remedies for cellulite that might help you restore your self-esteem you just lost because of this orange peel effect.
Corn Oil Massage for Cellulite
Take 1 cup of corn oil, ½ cup of grapefruit juice and 2 teaspoons of dried thyme. Make a mixture of all the three ingredients and massage the affected areas. Next, cover the area with plastic leg covers and leave it for half an hour. Clean the area with warm water and a good quality soap. For best results repeat this process 3 times a week.
Papaya As a Home Based Remedy for Cellulite
Take one slice of mashed papaya and add ¼ teaspoon of brown sugar. Mix both the ingredients to make a paste. Massage the affected area with this paste for three minutes. The enzymes found in Papaya help reduce collagen and remove the dead skin cells. Brown sugar also exfoliates and reveals new firmer skin. Repeat this therapy two to three times every week.
