7 Powerful Tips to Get Rid of Cellulite Fast
1. Be More Active
Many people think that walking around and moving doesn’t count as exercise, but it does.
The more you move, the better the blood flow you will have. Try finding an activity that you enjoy doing, such as walking, swimming, yoga, or even gardening, something that requires you to move a lot.
If you have a desk job, try getting up every 45 minutes and move for a bit.
2. Drink More Fluids
Proper water intake is something you hear people preach about so often that you take it for granted.
However, it is very important for improving blood flow, keeping healthy skin, and for your metabolism.
Besides helping you get rid of cellulite, drinking plain water can also be of great help for weight loss.
Try to get at least 1/2 ounce of liquid per pound of body weight per day. For example, if you weigh 200 pounds, you’d want to get at least 100 ounces per day.
Start your journey to losing 10-21 pounds in just 21 days.

A few things you can do to make sure you drink enough water each day:
- Carry a Gallon Jug of Water
Get a gallon jug and fill it up with water every morning (or the night before).
Take the gallon with you to work and don’t worry about what others think! (they probably won’t even care) Your health comes first, besides, you’re going to be the one laughing a few years later when their skin is super dry and wrinkly while yours is glowing with awesomeness.
- Drink a Glass of Water upon Waking
Another tip to make sure you’re getting enough water is to drink a glass as soon as you wake up. Make drinking water in the morning part of your daily routine.
3. Try Dry Brushing
I know, I know… Really? Dry brushing? But yes.
Dry brushing increases blood flow to the region being brushed. It also helps exfoliate the skin; it removes dry, dead skin cells and makes your skin more susceptible to moisture and hydration.
You can take a dry brush and gently rub the affected region in a circular motion.
Try doing this once a week for 3-5 minutes on each area, more than this is not really beneficial and can damage or irritate the skin.
Some experts say it’s better to do it before you shower and to make sure that your skin and the brush are both dry.
4. Reduce Sugar Intake
5. Consume More Omega-3 Fatty Acids
Omega-3 is typically found in fish like salmon, cod, and sardines. But they can also be found in other food sources like flaxseed oil and walnuts.
If you’re having trouble getting enough omega-3 from foods, you can always get it in supplement form. I personally take a high-quality omega-3 fish oil supplement every day.
6. Don’t Waste Money on Creams or Pills
I know, I know… We all want that magic approach that will get rid of cellulite right away and make all of our problems disappear.
Unfortunately, life isn’t that easy most of the time.
You can save your hard-earned money and skip the cellulite creams and pills that don’t work and often cost a fortune.
Instead, spend some time and commit to working on your nutrition.
7. Find a great program that helps you lose excess fat and prevents you from gaining it
Developing healthier eating habits and an overall healthy lifestyle will be the best way to preventing and reducing cellulite.
What is Cellulite?
Cellulite is fat that collects in pockets right below the surface of the skin. It typically forms in lower body areas, like hips, thighs, and buttocks, giving the skin a dimpling look.
Let me tell you that cellulite is completely normal and it is present in 80-90% of post-pubertal women (1) and around 10% of men.
Cellulite happens to skinny as well as overweight women and may worsen during high estrogen states, such as pregnancy, nursing, and chronic use of oral contraceptives.
While diet and exercise do not appear to be associated with its development, weight gain and obesity can worsen the appearance of existing cellulite.
What Causes Cellulite?
The lack of blood flow and inflammation could be caused by a few things:
- Not enough liquid intake
- Sedentary lifestyle
- Low estrogen levels
- Inflammatory foods
