Cellulite - YUCK!
I thought you might like some inexpensive and very effective ways to combat this common problem.
You know I'm a big proponent of nutrition - "you are what you eat". However, we all need a little extra help, especially if we've spent years eating less-than-wonderful food.
So WATER and VEGETABLES and FRUIT are your biggest friends when it comes to fighting cellulite. Get lots of all three. Whenever you feel hungry or tired, reach for water first then fruit or vegetables. There is no need to ever go hungry. Fill up on as much as you want of these three and watch the pounds and the cellulite melt away.
Meanwhile - jump-start the new you with a luxurious Herbal Bath . Simply follow the directions on the bottle and either wrap the problem areas or pour the solution into a nice hot bath and relax for an hour. You deserve it! You'll be amazed at how soft your skin feels afterward. Even more exciting will be the inches you can lose with every treatment. (see my other blog on the Herbal Body Wrap).
Then I make a mixture of sugar and olive oil or coconut oil. Keep it dry in a jar by the tub and rub it into dry skin before you shower. You will LOVE how your skin feels. Be sure to spend some time rubbing it into your cuticles on your fingers and toes as well as any rough spots on your feet.
You can even use very gently on your face - feels great and you'll positively glow!
Here are some other easy and effective remedies for cellulite. Please share you results.
This is going to be a FANTABULOUS Summer! : )

Try: Ground Coffee | Apple Cider Vinegar
"Ever thought of rubbing ground coffee and apple cider vinegar on your cellulite spots? Well, this is my secret remedy. First I use ground coffee. I dampen my skin, rub coffee grounds in an upward motion on my cellulite areas, massage and rinse. Then, I use apple cider vinegar. Just pour the vinegar in a bowl, soak hands in it, and massage onto skin. I know it sounds strange, but I have found it to work."

Try: Young Living Essential Oils
"Pure essential oils are great and healthy for your skin. There are several oils that aid in cellulite reduction. Lemongrass and grapefruit oils are both wonderful oils that help reduce the appearance of cellulite. You apply it topically up to twice a day and watch the cellulite melt away!! Beware of buying imitation products, that say they are "all natural" oils, because they can contain a high amount of olive oil or water. I recommend Young Living products, as they adhere to European Standards. By using essential oils I have visibly reduced the appearance of cellulite, naturally, and without irritation to the skin and cells. It is always best to take a natural approach wherever possible! "
