Let’s face it – there’s nothing more crippling for your self-esteem than to look in a full-length mirror and see cellulite staring back at you.
Ugh, even the name – cellulite – sounds gross. Wouldn’t it be great if there was an easy way to get rid of it for good?
Well, there’s good news. While cellulite affects as much as 90% of women, there are steps you can take to minimize – or even eliminate – its appearance, and they don’t require spending hours at the gym or undergoing dangerous cosmetic procedures.
Before you can beat cellulite, however, you have to understand what it is.
What Is Cellulite?
Cellulite is caused by pockets of fat that exist just underneath the surface of the skin. Because these fat pockets aren’t firm, the skin ripples over the top of them, causing the “dimpling” that we associate with cellulite.
While hitting the gym is a great way to get rid of cellulite, it’s not a complete solution. In fact, even extremely fit women can still suffer from this embarrassing condition, which is why merely working out won’t solve the problem on its own.
Not only do you need to reduce the fat pockets, but you also need to tighten the skin, so that it has a taut, uniform appearance. And because this is a problem that starts deep inside your butt and thighs, that’s exactly where you need to target it.
Here are 5 tricks for reducing the appearance of cellulite – fast.
1) Drink more coffee
I know, I know – you already think coffee is the greatest thing ever invented. After all, it’s the only thing that tastes great and helps you get through your day.
But the caffeine in coffee is also excellent for stimulating blood flow, which can stimulate your skin cells to reproduce and improve their overall health. This helps iron out any dimples in your skin.
Of course, beyond taking more trips to Starbucks, you can also rub caffeine into your skin for even faster results – but more on that later.
2) Eat asparagus
Asparagus has long been a closely-guarded secret for stars in Hollywood and models on the catwalk. Many of them chow down on asparagus before a photo shoot or red carpet visit.
Why? Because asparagus is fantastic for reducing bloating, which can contribute to the appearance of cellulite. Too much water under the skin never looks good, but asparagus can act as a natural diuretic, helping you look your best while also getting valuable vitamins and minerals.
3) Add more fruits and veggies to your diet
Many people believe that toxins in your body contribute to the formation of cellulite, because your body uses fat deposits to store toxins instead of putting them in your vital organs. The more toxins you have, the thinking goes, the more incentive your body will have to keep those fat deposits around.
Fruits and vegetables are filled with antioxidants, which can neutralize and eliminate those pesky toxins. Plus, they taste great and can keep you filled for longer, improving your weight loss efforts in general.
4) Get those healthy fats
It sounds counter-intuitive: you’re trying to get rid of fat, so why would you eat more of it?
Simply put, healthy fats – like those found in fish, nuts, and flaxseed oil – improve circulation. This removes waste from your cells, brings them nourishment, and promotes cell growth.
The end result is healthier, more toned skin – great for hiding cellulite.
5) Give your skin a little help
What you eat has a big impact on the appearance of your skin, but for fastest results, targeting the problem areas directly is the best course of action.
There are several cellulite-targeting creams on the market, but unfortunately not all of them have the necessary ingredients to make a difference.
If you decide to see how quickly a good cream can make a difference, we recommend Revitol Cellulite Solution. It’s filled with proven ingredients like caffeine, skin-boosting Retinol, and algae extract, which is packed with antioxidants.
When paired with a healthy diet and exercise, a quality anti-cellulite cream can really jump-start your results.

You should never be embarrassed to wear shorts in public, or to go out in a swimsuit on a day at the beach. With these tips to finally beat cellulite, you’ll be able to show off your gams any time you feel like it.
And to think, all it took was eating right, drinking a little more coffee, and a slather or two of Revitol Cellulite Solution. Who knew looking great could be so easy?
