The bane of shorts season – cellulite. It’s a common problem among women everywhere when the warm weather comes out. You want to bare some skin, but your cellulite is showing. First of all, EVERYONE has cellulite. Literally, everyone. It’s not something you can naturally get rid of (unless you resort to surgery, but that can be evasive and expensive). So rest easy knowing it’s not just you, everyone deals with cellulite. Luckily, there are some natural ways to smooth and reduce the look of cellulite. This method in particular is inexpensive and such a simple DIY, you can easily do it at home! Check out the technique below and prepare to rock a bathing suit come June.
There are some extremely impressive techniques to banish cellulite (that heat method – woah) but this one requires no fancy equipment! All you need are leftover coffee grounds (which I’m sure you have in abundance), peppermint tea leaves, flax-seed oil, and…hemorrhoid cream.
Yes, weird. Hemorrhoid cream works wonders on reducing inflammation and tightens skin, making it the perfect secret weapon.
STEP 1: Mix the grounds, tea, flax-seed oil and cream in a bowl. Mix to combine.
STEP 2: Slather the afflicted area with the mixture. Make sure to not rub it into the skin.
STEP 3: Wrap the area in plastic wrap and an elastic bandage.
STEP 4: Let sit for a few minutes before removing.
Sounds a little crazy, but it really works to reduce the appearance of cellulite in a pinch!
