While you can’t get rid of cellulite, there are a number of ways to reduce its appearance. Many of them, like a balanced diet and exercise, not only helps affected areas look better, but they are good for your overall health too.
If you use essential oils, you know their many health benefits, including anti-inflammatory properties, improved sleep and soothing skin irritation. But few people use essential oils for cellulite reduction.
How Essential Oils Help with Cellulite Reduction
First, many benefits of essential oils, that might not be directly related to cellulite, can still help. For example, if you use oils to help you sleep, you’ll be better able to manage your weight and that can shrink cellulite dimples.
Second, there are a number of direct benefits for cellulite from certain oils. These include reduced fluid retention and improved lymphatic and blood circulation, especially when oils are used in conjunction with dry brushing.
