Using Coconut Oil to get rid of Cellulite
Cellulite affects about 9 out of 10 women to some extent. Cellulite is actually fat that lies underneath the skin that causes the ugly lumpy appearance. There are numerous services, products and plans out there that will claim to eliminate your cellulite entirely and although some plans may work, a lot of them unfortunately do not. There are many factors that go into reducing cellulite and this includes frequent exercise, a healthier diet, and drinking lots of water.
Still another reason for cellulite is genetics and unfortunately this really isn’t some thing we are able to move away from. Fortunately, there are actions we can take daily to decrease the look of cellulite, one of the most effective is eating and applying coconut oil topically. Eating coconut oil increases the amount of calories we burn and gives us more energy during the day. With that being said, taking 2 to 3 tablespoons each day will certainly make your fitness program that much more efficient and will allow you to get to that slimmer body quicker. This notion of burning fat is called ketosis, and can be a safe and effective method to rid the body of toxins and stored body fat. Dietary considerations should also be taken into consideration, for example removing sugar and starch out of your diet. By taking those precautions and implementing coconut oil into your daily routine you can be on your way to reducing your cellulite.
Applying coconut oil to the cellulite also helps decrease the appearance of those not too pretty dimples. Rubbing coconut oil frequently onto these areas will basically split up the fat deposits that are the main cause for the cellulite. It’ll also do a great job of nourishing the region and developing a softer appearance and smoother since coconut oil is quickly absorbed through your skin. I work-out six times per week, eat very balanced (no processed carbohydrates or sugar), and have still had some additional dimples lurking around. Although over the last year of adding this oil to my skincare routine and daily diet I’ve watched the appearance of the cellulite diminish greatly and I realize coconut oil should take all the credit. The next time you’re in the grocery store, do not forget this nature’s wonder. Just make sure to choose the unprocessed, natural coconut oil and you’ll be getting rid of your cellulite in no time!
