Certain ancestral techniques have effectively proved their worth against cellulite. Massages with suction cups, herbal teas, natural lotions… Discover in this article 5 grandmother’s tips with formidable effectiveness against orange peel skin.

A coffee anti-cellulite lotion

You may have noticed it. Most commercial ‘anti-cellulite’ creams are caffeine-based. Indeed, this molecule limits the multiplication of adipose cells and also prevents the storage of fat… Now, it is a major ally, especially when combined with guarana or green tea. Two recognized fat-burning active ingredients.

The trick? So instead of buying a caffeinated product, make it yourself! Prepare 50 cl of very strong coffee. Put it in a bottle and add the juice of 1 lemon. Close then shake and leave for 24 hours. Massage the affected areas with this lotion. It only keeps for a week in the fridge.

A draining herbal tea with cherry stems

Often used in herbal medicine… The cherry stalk helps detoxify the body and thus promotes the circulation of fluids. However, adipose cellulite is precisely associated with poor circulation of the lymph. The fluid that carries toxins through our body. Same thing for aqueous cellulite. This is therefore none other than the famous water retention!

The trick? Prepare a draining herbal tea with cherry stems, to consume 3 times a day for 10 days. During the night, let macerate about 70 g of dried cherry stems (organic and untreated, it’s important) in 1 liter of water. And in the morning, boil for 10 min. Cover and then leave to infuse for 15 minutes. The mixture should be kept in the refrigerator for a maximum of 2 days.

An anti-oily massage with essential oil

Lemon essential oil is effective against many sores! Rich in limonene is also hypolipidemic: this means that it promotes lipolysis, or the breakdown of lipids – in short. It’s a competitive fat burner!

Attention ! Lemon essential oil is prohibited for pregnant and/or breastfeeding women as well as for people with epilepsy.

The anti-cellulite cupping technique

Suction cups: the best solution against stubborn cellulite. Used for centuries in traditional Chinese medicine, cupping stimulates the circulation of fluids in the body. They also break down cells that store fat. Cellulite fades after a few weeks.

The trick? We first start by applying an anti-cellulite cream to the area to be treated. Then massage vigorously with a lukewarm plastic suction cup. You can even put essential oils in it to boost the anti-cellulite action. For the massage to be effective, you have to put some elbow grease into it!

An anti-cellulite herbal bath
