Posted on 27 June 2018

Cellulite is a stubborn frustration experienced by many women. The condition often makes the skin appear dimpled and also causes an “orange peel” impression to the skin. It usually plagues hips, thighs, and buttocks but can also occur in other areas like, breasts, upper arms or belly. Unfortunately, it's more susceptible in females.

Cellulite is also one of the more common unwelcome side-effects associated with pregnancy. The hormonal changes or the diet followed may contribute and results in the formation of cellulite. Below are some of the ways you may be able to get rid of or prevent post-pregnancy cellulite in a natural way. From doing the right exercises, to making some major changes in diet, to the use of creams like Revitol Cellulite cream, all of the methods are worth a try.

  1. Exercise

Burning calories and increasing muscle mass is a must when it comes to elimination or reduction of cellulite. Both strength training and weight training will prove helpful. It's recommended to spend 30 minutes lifting weights/day at least 3-4 times/week . Of course, women who had a c-section should be sure to consult a doctor before resuming or beginning an exercise routine post-pregnancy.


healthy diet for reducing post-pregnancy cellulite

  1. Diet

Diet plays a pivotal role in the reduction of cellulite. Post-pregnancy too, every woman should follow a healthy, nutritious, and balanced diet. There is evidence that consuming salmon, omega-3 fatty acids, and fat-soluble vitamins are important for the body and can help to reduce cellulite. Also, avoid consuming processed and packaged beverages + drink lots of water and keep your body well hydrated. You must have an appropriate diet in order to cellulite. It is highly advisable to consume foods that are rich in fiber and Vitamin C and give up on foods high in saturated fat. If needed, consult a dietitian for help with a proper diet.

  1. Use of Cellulite Creams

Using cellulite creams is also an effective way of reducing the appearance of cellulite. Not all creams can give you a permanent solution. However, Revitol cellulite cream is specially designed to enrich the skin and also reduces the appearance cellulite. It works for both men and women, is odorless, and is very easy to apply. Results should be visible within a few weeks.


dry brushing for cellulite during pregnancy

  1. Dry Brushing

Another remedy that can help you reduce the appearance of cellulite is dry brushing, because it helps in stimulating blood and lymph flow in the body. Dry brushing opens up the pores on the skin. This is something that you must do in order to get rid of cellulite. Softly and gently brush the affected part of the body for at least 5 minutes at a time. Remember, don’t get the brush wet, and the bristles of the brush should be natural, soft, and non-synthetic.

  1. Coffee Scrubs

Coffee scrubs are another effective method that can help in eliminating or reducing the appearance of cellulite. Mix dry coffee grounds with 2-3 tablespoons of sugar and about 2 tablespoons of coconut oil. Mix the ingredients well and massage in to skin for several minutes. Do it about 2-3 times a week, you could see results within a few weeks.

  1. Consuming Gelatin

Gelatin contains the amino acids glycine and proline in large numbers and these are necessary for healthy skin, hair, and nail growth.  It is another good remedy that you must give a try. We love the Vital Proteins brand!


  1. Moisturizing Naturally

Detox baths may help remove toxins that can lead to skin problems but it is really very important to keep our skin moisturized. Constantly adding toxins back to the skin in the form of chemical-laden beauty products probably doesn’t help much in reducing cellulite. It is really very important to use a good quality moisturizer. It not only provides moisturization but also helps in reducing the appearance of cellulite.

  1. Drinking Enough Water

Hydrating the body is very important as well, and the need for hydration cannot be overstated. Water does not only helps in the flushing of the fat being stored in the body (including cellulite) but it also helps in keeping all the nutrients circulating in the body.


omega 3 to get rid of post-pregnancy cellulite

  1. Consuming Omega-3s

Consumption of the wrong kinds of fats leads to an imbalance of the fatty acid composition in the body. The body needs important fats for smooth skin and tissue, among many other things. Consuming enough Omega-3 fatty acids and fat soluble vitamins can help reduce the appearance of cellulite over time. As mentioned before, Omega-3s and fat soluble vitamins are not only important for your skin but also helps in many other functions in the body, so it definitely doesn't hurt to try it.

  1. Liposuction

Liposuction is invasive and a plastic surgeon usually sucks out the fat using a small hose. This should be the last option and should be considered after all the other methods have failed. It is a very costly method and is the most permanent of all the above mentioned methods.
