Cellulite affects most of us at some point! Let’s be honest, we all have some areas that aren’t as smooth as want them to be.
As our lifestyle changes and we get older, our bodies change too.
Body fat under your skin causes nodules or skin dimpling often on the buttocks, legs, and abdomen.
Cellulite is most prevalent in adult females and makes most feel self-conscious or inadequate physically.
The appearance ofthese butt dimples is common for many women and be caused by skin issues, diet, hormone issues or it could simply be hereditary.
But that doesn’t mean that we have to just accept cellulite!
It can even happen to people who lead a relatively healthy lifestyle, too.
Luckily, there are a lot of great ways to remove cellulite that you can try on your own. Each one aims to balance problems in your connective tissue that can be causing the appearance of cellulite.
How To Get Rid Of Booty Dimples
#1 – Use A Cellulite Cream
There are a few creams and oils that contain ingredients to combat cellulite and tighten skin. I personally use the M3 Naturals Cellulite Oil which works great for me. This is my number one tool when it comes to attacking cellulite!
Check it out below.
I think one of the reasons that this oil works so well is because of the collagen ingredient. So, I also add collagen to my diet too…
#2 – Add Some Collagen/Gelatin to Your Diet
Gelatin is a flavorless food and is a cooked version of collagen from animal protein. It’s used in foods, vitamin capsules, cosmetics, and pharmaceutical drugs but it’s also something that many people lack in our modern diets.
Collagen and gelatin come from animal bones, tissues, and organs that aren’t consumed in normal western diets.
You may have heard about some of the many health benefits related to consuming collagen, gelatin on a normal basis or using a collagen moisturizer. It can reduce wrinkles, support healthy nails, improve the gut, and hair; can help your joints; tighten loose skin; improve digestion, and it is also scientifically proven to help improve the appearance of cellulite by building healthier connective tissues.
I simply add a scoop of Collagen Peptides to my morning coffee every day.
Check it out below:
After a couple of weeks, not only did I notice an improvement in cellulite, but the fine lines on my face appeared smoother and I had less stomach bloating issues.
In general, gelatin is made up of amino acids (proline and glycine) that are found in animal bones, tissues, and organs which aren’t consumed in normal western diets. These amino acids are apparently also beneficial for your body in terms of weight control.
#3 – Balance Your Hormones
Your hormones are believed to be the biggest factor in cellulite production. For this reason, balancing your hormones might help get rid of cellulite visibility in your body.
You should speak to your doctor about doing this properly or if you already know about a hormone imbalance in your body you can find over-the-counter supplements that can help balance your hormones naturally but do your research and be mindful of possible side effects.
#4 – Coffee Scrubs
A popular choice for removing booty dimples is a coffee scrub. This is exactly what it sounds like, a body scrub made up of coffee grounds and other natural ingredients. This scrub works in a similar way to the many butt creams and is beneficial in reducing the appearance of cellulite and can also tighten your skin and stimulate lymph and blood flow thanks to the caffeine and antioxidants in the coffee.
There are a lot of different methods for coffee scrubs and wraps that can reduce bum dimples. The simplest form of this is to combine two or three tablespoons of coconut oil (melted) with three tablespoons of brown sugar and ¼ cup of coffee grounds. It will form a paste. Keep it in a clean glass jar tightly closed. When you’re ready to use it, take some of the paste and massage it into your skin for a few minutes, applying firm pressure. Wash off as you usually would. To remove cellulite, it’s recommended to use this two or three times a week to see results within two weeks.
#5 – Detox Baths
Toxins build up in your body and are believed to have an effect on your subcutaneous fat cells and lead to cellulite. Detox baths are meant to help relax you and remove the toxins from your body. There are a number of different detox bath recipes but a common one is to mix ¼ cup of Himalayan salt with ¼ Epsom salt, ¼ cup of baking soda, and 1/3 cup of apple cider vinegar along with 10 drops of your favorite essential oil (lavender is great for relaxation!). You dissolve the salts and baking soda in boiling water and let it sit.
You then run your bath with warm to hot water and add the apple cider vinegar then pour in the salt mixture and then add the essential oil for you. Soak in the bath for at least 30 minutes. You might feel tired or even lightheaded so don’t soak too long. You may also need to have someone else around to help you if you’re too tired or dizzy.
#6 – Dry Brushing
This is the act of brushing your dry skin with a dry, natural-bristled brush as a means to open your pores. It has a number of benefits including helping with circulation and stimulating blood flow as well as lymph flow in your body. Dry brushing also helps remove dry skin and can help keep your skin tight. There are also theories that say this technique can detoxify your body, help improve your kidney function, and help you digest your food. The blood stimulation and detoxifying effects of dry brushing are what is believed to help get rid of cellulite in the body.
It is recommended to do this daily or twice a day (best to do before jumping in the shower). Move the brush towards your heart using long, sweeping motions instead of back and forth motions or circular scrubbing. Start at your feet and legs and work your way up to your arms. Then, move on to your stomach and brush in a counterclockwise motion. Avoid brushing too hard. You want to stimulate your skin, not irritate it and make it red. Choose a brush with stiff bristles and preferably a long, detachable handle so you can reach all parts of your body easily.
#7 – Kettlebells
Exercise usually isn’t listed as a way of getting rid of booty dimples and even relatively thin people can have cellulite. However, kettlebells, which are used to strengthen your stomach, hips, buttocks, and thighs, can help reduce dimples on your bum. Doing exercises and improving your fitness with kettlebells can stimulate blood flow to those parts of your body which are prone to cellulite and can smooth out the connective tissue and build muscle in that area while burning body fat.
#8 – Myofascial Massages
With the belief that cellulite is made in the superficial fascia layer of the connective tissue under your skin, it is also believed that any trauma to that layer of tissue from injuries, scar tissue, improper exercise, or simply inactivity could contribute to the dimpled skin caused by cellulite. This is because the superficial fascia is fibrous and can become more fibrous and thick which increases the appearance of the butt dimples.
Myofascial massages can be performed by massage therapists and are believed to smooth out the connective tissue that makes cellulite. It can also help with joint and muscle pains that are also related to the fascia in your body. While it might not be as good as a professional massage, adding the use of a deep tissue roller to your routine can have similar effects for you when you use it at home on your own.
#9 – Omega-3s
It’s possible that eating too much of the wrong fats can cause a fatty acid imbalance in your body that is causing the bunched up connective tissue giving you cellulite. There are some theories that state that eating more Omega-3 fatty acids or supplements can help erase cellulite in your body over time. Luckily, Omega-3s have many other benefits for your body including cardiovascular health so increasing consumption of these fatty acids can only be a good thing for you.
Any of these ways to get rid of cellulite can help you reduce the appearance of dimples or nodules caused by the bunched up connective tissue in your body. Try one or more of them at home and see what works best for you.
