Must-Read: DIY Recipe to Reduce Cellulite

CoffeeHow many of us suffer from embarrassing and unsightly cellulite? Unfortunately, it’s impossible to completely get rid of it, but there are things we can do to temporarily minimize its appearance.

Indie Lee, founder of the all natural skincare line Indie Lee & Co has shared one of her DIY recipes with us. This at-home scrub not only works as a natural exfoliant, but will help reduce the appearance of cellulite as well.

For this recipe, you’ll need:

  • 1/2 oz sweet almond oil
  • 2 tbsp coffee grinds (Lee recommends espresso roast)
  • 5 tbsp coconut oil
  • 3/4 cup arrowroot powder (a natural alternative to talc)

Directions:

1. In a large bowl, combine coffee grinds and sweet almond oil until thoroughly mixed.

2. Add the coconut oil; mix well.

3. Fold in the arrowroot powder, making sure to get rid of any clumps.

Bonus Tip: Indie Lee recommends keeping the mixture refrigerated for one day to make it easier to scoop out.

That’s it! With just a few ingredients and a little time, you can have a home-made recipe to help exfoliate skin naturally while minimizing the appearance of unsightly cellulite.

Avon ANEW CLINICAL Professional Cellulite Treatment Reviews

I just received ANEW CLINICAL Professional Cellulite Treatment from reps at Avon, so I can test and review their new cellulite treatment!

I’m ALWAYS up to try out cellulite creams and treatments. I have used several that worked really, really well and I had almost no cellulite left to treat. And then I got pregnant…

I’m now 37 weeks pregnant, due August 24th, and boy do I have cellulite now!!!!!! YIKES! I tried so hard to stay in shape, eat right, etc with this pregnancy, but it did not seem to help me avoid cellulite on my thighs… UGH.

So I’m anxious to start using this as soon as I pop this little baby out so I can try to get my body back in shape. I feel like a beached whale right now…

Avon site says…

Transform your legs and look good from any angle! Dramatically reduce the visible depth and intensity of cellulite.* Women agreed look of cellulite on legs appeared reduced even when sitting with legs crossed.* 2 revolutionary formulas in one: CelluRefine Cream: rich cream designed to help reinforce skin’s structure. Smooth Suction Gel: cooling gel with tightening polymers is formulated to enhance the cream.

Price: $30

I read the reviews of this product on the Avon site and it sounds like this one is a winner! One reviewer said...

    “I have used cellulite cream in the past and never really saw much difference. I am thin and toned but have always been uncomfortable with the severity of my cellulite (thanks mom!). I got this product and it sat in my bathroom for a while, but last week I buckled down and decided to see if it actually works. Last night I decided to finally look in the mirror and see if there’s been changes, and voila! It was sooooo much better! Before I used to look at my cellulite in that same mirror and be so self conscious. Last night I looked almost normal! Still have some ways to go, but this has seriously changed my outlook already. Bikini here I come!”

Sounds great! I can’t wait to start using it in a few weeks. I’ll use it for at least 4 weeks before I write a review so I can see if I get any improvements.

Have you tried any anti-cellulite treatments or creams? Would you try this one?
