Anyone who has dimpled fat on her mid-section, buttocks and thighs has felt JUST THAT!
It’s easy to understand why. Cellulite leaves women feeling less attractive, which lowers confidence and self-esteem. Who needs that??? Seriously!
What’s more, the unique physiological make-up of cellulite makes it more difficult to reduce or eliminate than fat in other parts of the body.
Check out these five tips that will help you FINALLY get rid of cellulite.
1. Back to the basics: Drink plenty of water.
Dry, dehydrated skin magnifies the appearance of cellulite “dimples”. Keeping your body hydrated plumps skin cells. This helps smooth bumps and ridges.
A good benchmark is to drink AT LEAST eight glasses of water a day. This will help ensure your body has an adequate supply to keep skin hydrated.
- Drink a glass of water every morning BEFORE having your coffee, tea or juice. It’ll start your day off right.
- Carry a water bottle with you, keep it filled and drink from it ALL DAY.
- Take a ThinkitDrinkit Hydration BOOST daily to help optimize your body’s hydration level.
2. Massage or brush affected areas.
Cellulite is often associated with poor circulation. Massaging affected areas — or using a skin brush on them — is a good way to improve blood flow to the tissues below. It can also help stimulate fat cells, break down fat deposits and release toxins.
Start by massaging or brushing your cellulite using small circular motions for a few minutes several times each week. Begin with a light touch for a short period of time and work up from there. It’ll allow your skin to adjust, avoiding irritation and redness.
3. Eat healthy.
Eating a reduced-calorie diet based on healthy fruits and vegetables, proteins and grains can help you lose weight — which could reduce cellulite over time.
Many women depend exclusively on diet to get rid of cellulite. However, this will likely lead to failure. While diet is a key component of a cellulite reduction plan, it MUST be combined with the other techniques outlined in this article to be successful.
Use this checklist as a guide to the types of foods you should AVOID if you want to cut cellulite:
Fried foods including:
- french fries
- fried chicken
- onion rings
Packaged snacks, such as:
- corn chips
- potato chips
- cheese puffs
HIgh-sodium processed foods, including:
- canned soups
- salad dressings
- baked goods
- sugared soda
- alcohol, especially combined with sugary mixers like sodas and juice.
Tip: Adding ThinkitDrinkit’s Cellulite Reduction BOOST to your diet daily is a proven way to reduce the appearance of cellulite.
4. Exercise more.
If you don’t have a regular exercise routine, get moving!
If you DO exercise regularly, it may be time to adjust your program to focus more (though not all) of it on affected areas — especially the waist, hips and thighs.
A sound exercise routine should include:
aerobic activities such as walking, running, bicycling and dancing that can help increase blood flow and burn fat
weight training to build muscle mass
stretching, including pilates and yoga, which is particularly important as women age to maintain a lean shape and form.
Tip: Consult with a personal trainer regularly to set-up and refine an exercise program that’s right for you. This relatively small investment will help ensure that you’ll balance eliminating your cellulite with developing an overall healthier YOU.
5. Avoid creams that make skin thinner.
Certain chemicals (such as steroids) are known to thin the skin. (They’re often used to combat conditions like eczema.) If you use creams and lotions that contain these substances on the skin over your cellulite, it could make bulges more pronounced and visible.
Of course, if your doctor or other health practitioner prescribed them for you, don’t stop using them without a consultation. Instead, have a discussion about alternatives which could help heal your skin that won’t make your cellulite worse.
Tip: If your health care provider isn’t aware of alternative ways to heal your skin conditions, it could be time to seek out a second opinion. Some practitioners are better educated about natural solutions to these common dermatological problems.

When it comes to non-medical skin moisturization, nourish it with natural coconut or olive oils or all-natural organic products.
Is it time to take control over your cellulite? Don’t let previous failed efforts stop you. Take a balanced approach to start seeing results in months.
