If you suffer from cellulite you’re not alone. It’s a problem that a massive nine out of ten women struggle with at some point in their lives.
While some women choose expensive and risky procedures in an effort to reduce the unsightly dimples on their thighs and buttocks, most really just want a way to get rid of it naturally at home, without having to spend a small fortune. And the fact of the matter is, invasive and costly treatments such as liposuction don’t even work for cellulite reduction anyway and can actually make it worse.
If you have been trying to remove the orange peel look from your skin, you will no doubt have come across some of the home remedies that have been passed around for years… and like many women you may have even tried some of them yourself. If you have, you’ve probably already discovered that most of them don’t solve the problem of your “cottage cheese” thighs either… at best they will just temporarily reduce the appearance of it.
The problem with all these remedies, is they mostly only work on the skin. They don’t target the real problem which is the saggy untoned muscles beneath the skin.
Cellulite isn’t a skin problem… it’s a muscle problem.
There really is just no way around it… the only way you can truly eliminate the dimpled orange peel look is with the right kind of exercise, which specifically targets the lower body trouble spots, combined with an effective anti-cellulite diet. (Don’t worry it’s not a deprivation type diet)
Some of the home remedies do have some value however, because although they don’t actually do away with your cellulite, they can at least temporarily reduce the appearance of it. This can come in handy if you have something coming up where you want to look your best in a hurry.
So are these home remedies worth trying?
In an experiment run by the Huffington Post, 12 anti-cellulite home remedies were put to the test for 30 days. While some of the treatments made no noticeable improvement what so ever, others did at least temporarily reduce the appearance of the dimples.
Home remedies that showed best results in 30 days :
Coffee Scrub : Mix coffee grounds with hot water and rub vigorously into the affected areas for 10 minutes at least twice a week
Cayenne Pepper + Lemon Juice : Mix cayenne pepper and lemon juice together in warm water and drink several times a day. Not only is this good for reducing the appearance of the dimples, it is also good for giving your metabolism a boost and will therefore help you lose any excess weight you may be carrying as well.
Juniper Oil + Olive Oil : Combine juniper oil and olive oil and massage into the affected area daily. This is a great moisturizer too and will leave your skin feeling silky smooth.
Dry Brush + Coconut Oil : Rub coconut oil into your problem areas and then massage with a dry brush. This is also another excellent skin moisturizer.

So while some home remedies can temporarily reduce the appearance of your dimpled “orange peel” skin, for genuine long term reduction you do need to embark on an exercise routine which is specifically designed to actually eliminate the cellulite itself, not just the appearance of it.
The good news is, the right type of exercise can also produce visible results quickly, within 30 days, which is even better than the home remedies above because this is REAL cellulite reduction, not just a temporary reduction in the appearance of the pits and dimples. That is the important difference… that is how you REALLY get rid of the problem once and for all.
