Treatments for cellulite are wide and varied and consist of everything from at-home scrubs to advanced spa treatments. We believe the best approach for permanent cellulite reduction and for an overall improvement in skin tone is to combine regular home care with a healthy lifestyle and a course of highly effective targeted cellulite treatments at a day spa.

What is cellulite and what causes it?

Scientifically speaking, cellulite is a group of fatty cells, separated with fibrous strands, which form together in the skin’s middle layer and pull on the skin’s connective tissue, which is what causes cellulite’s bumpy, dimpled appearance.

But what causes these fat cells to group together and wreak havoc on our tums, thighs and bums? Well, the jury is still out on that. For some women it’s lifestyle. An unhealthy diet and lack of exercise means excess weight, and inevitably, cellulite. For some women it’s hormonal. Fluctuating levels of estrogen and other hormones throughout lifecycles can make drastic changes to our bodies. But for many women cellulite seems to be a genetic trait. Women of all ages and sizes are simply predisposed to having cellulite because it’s been handed down over generations.

Whatever the cause, cellulite is a fact of life for most of the world’s women. 90% of women over 35 have cellulite.

The only way to deal with the ‘orange peel’ curse is to take matters into our own hands!

Here are a few popular ways many women deal with cellulite both at home and at the spa.

Home Cellulite Removal

  • Apple cider vinegar – It’s believed that drinking a mix of pure apple cider vinegar and water every day or mixing the vinegar with massage oil and rubbing onto the skin can reduce the appearance of cellulite.

  • Coffee Sugar Scrub – Mixing ½ cup of coffee grounds, ¼ cup of brown sugar and massaging with olive oil is believed to enhance fat metabolism and remove fat and liquid from skin.

  • Bathing rituals – Brushing skin with a natural plant fibre brush before getting in the bath or shower helps stimulate blood and lymph flow. Finish the shower with a burst of cold water to improve skin tone. After bathing apply an essential oil blend on key circulatory and lymphatic stimulation points including the top of the thighs and back of the knees.
