Cellulite is caused when fat deposits itself in the deepest layers of our skin, this pocket of fat then protrudes up to the higher levels of our skin causing that dimpling, lumpy, orange peel, and cottage cheese looking appearance. One of the best at home cellulite treatments is using fresh coffee grounds. The effects from this home remedy to get rid of cellulite have worked for many people for many years. If you are a skeptic, let me explain how coffee grounds to get rid of cellulite works and how to perform this cellulite treatment at home.
How Does Using Coffee Grounds Work to Reduce Cellulite
Cellulite is most often found on the parts of the body that receive the least amount of blood circulation. If you lead a sedentary lifestyle, you are more likely to notice cellulite in the areas of the buttocks, legs and stomach. To get rid of cellulite, reduce the appearance of cellulite, or to prevent cellulite you should use the home remedy to get rid of cellulite with coffee grounds.
The reason fresh ground coffee beans work as a great cellulite treatment is because of its safe concentration of caffeine. For the maximum benefits, freshly ground coffee grounds are the best. About a half cup of these coffee grounds that have been activated by hot water will release the most amount of caffeine.
How Caffeine Works to Reduce the Appearance of Cellulite
The caffeine is a stimulant and will stimulate the blood to circulate more to that area. It will help move out the toxins in the area, push out the fatty deposits, and help bring necessary nutrients to the cellulite affected area such as Vitamin A. You cannot get this effect from drinking excessive amounts of caffeine. The topical application of the caffeine rich coffee grounds works to stimulate blood flow and reduce the appearance of cellulite as well as smoothen and tone the skin that is being treated.
How to Use Coffee Grounds as an Effective Cellulite Treatment
Many women do this treatment at least three times a week and add it into their beauty ritual. To continue having the beneficial results of the reduction of cellulite you must continue doing this cellulite treatment.
The first thing you want to do is gather about a half cup full of coffee grounds and add either lotion, olive oil, or baby oil to the coffee grounds to make a mixture that can be applied to the cellulite. Use the mixture to rub into the cellulite affected area. Some people prefer to wrap plastic wrap around the cellulite treatment area for around 10 minutes before removing whereas others apply the homemade cellulite cream without plastic wrap and leave on their skin for about 30 minutes.
Once the time is up for the treatment you can either wipe clean the area or jump in the shower to remove the coffee grounds and the lotion or oil used in the cellulite cream you made.
Why Using Coffee Ground Cellulite Treatment is Better than OTC Cellulite Cream
Many cellulite creams are currently on the market that contain caffeine and promise the same results you would get from the at home method. The reason, for many, that the at home cellulite treatment with coffee grounds is better is because it is cheaper and safer. Over-the-counter lotions containing caffeine are rather expensive and have other ingredients that may be harmful to your body overall or to your skin in general. The downside to using coffee grounds cellulite cream is that it can be messy. The perk to using the cellulite treatment of coffee grounds cellulite cream made at home is that it is practically free.
