Ah, the C word.
Cellulite is nothing to be ashamed of—because let’s face it, most of us have it.
Seriously, it’s believed to occur in roughly 90 percent of post-adolescent females. A number of variables factor into the development of the unappealing dimpling, but none of that matters when you just want it to go away. These two remedies for cellulite may seem weird, but they’re actually pretty effective.
Reasons to love cucumbers: They’re hydrating and rich in vitamins. Applying slices directly to the skin allows phytochemicals in cucumbers to tighten collagen for a firm complexion. This can result in an almost-instant reduction of cellulite appearance.
Caffeine dilates blood vessels, which tightens the outer tissues of the skin. Used on skin, it also lets your body release toxins and metabolize fat. Making your own coffee scrub is super simple—just combine unused grounds with some of your favorite skin oils—like almond or olive—and you’re done!
