Did you know that apple cider vinegar is currently the most widely used form of vinegar in the organic health community?
Purported to provide a plethora of health benefits, many such claims have been supported by medical research.
Moreover, apple cider vinegar has been used for hundreds of years for cooking as well as cleaning purposes, and it can also help people burn off unwanted belly fat and lose weight as well.
Here, we will focus on how using apple cider vinegar can help reduce the amount of cellulite formation.
How to Use Apple Cider Vinegar for Cellulite Reduction
Apple cider vinegar, combined with bentonite clay can help reduce cellulite. Bentonite clay has the ability to extract toxins and oily grime from the pores.
In terms of preparation, it will only take 5 minutes to produce the remedy. As far as procedure is concerned, begin by focusing on the problem area.
Then, take a sufficient amount of bentonite clay to cover the cellulite area, and then add a sufficient amount of apple cider vinegar in order to create a paste.
Next, apply the paste to the target area and allow it to dry for twenty minutes to half an hour.
Then, soak the area in some water that is lukewarm and then slowly extract the cellulite mask.
The aforementioned treatment works because it destroys the bacteria that causes cellulite and will also extract the toxins so that the skin layer that is being affected by the cellulite will be shredded.
Next, simply apply the treatment once a day until the cellulite is gone, and it is best to apply the treatment before you bathe.
Finally, make sure that the area is devoid of dust and dirt and that it is kept clean in order to prevent an infection.
Coconut oil and apple cider vinegar may also help.
It will take only 2 minutes to prepare the mix, and you will need a warm towel, some plastic wrap, a cup of extra virgin coconut oil, and half a cup of apple cider vinegar.
To prepare the treatment you will need to pour the apple cider vinegar and coconut oil into a bowl and then amalgamate them to form a smooth blend.
Then, sterilize the target area and then rub the smooth blend onto the cellulite area. Proceed to wrap the cellulite with some plastic wrap and then cover the plastic wrap with a warm towel.
Allow the blend to sit for at least an hour before you take a shower. Perform the treatment routine at least once per day, and you can do so at a time that is convenient for you.
Honey and apple cider vinegar is yet another popular treatment for cellulite.
To create the remedy you will need a tablespoon of natural honey, a cup of water, and two tablespoons of natural apple cider vinegar. Begin by heating the water until it reaches a warm temperature. Then, add the apple cider vinegar to the pot or container and stir vigorously.
Proceed to add the honey and mix it in well so that the concoction will have a sweet taste. The final step is to drink the apple cider vinegar/honey blend while it is still nice and warm.
You should drink the mix once a day for several months, and it is best to drink it on an empty stomach. Best of all, it will only take 5 minutes to create this fat burning and cellulite reducing drink.
Olive oil and apple cider vinegar is another popular cellulite reducing remedy.
You will need 5 minutes of free time and a warm towel, some plastic wrap, a tablespoon of olive oil, and three tablespoons of apple cider vinegar to prepare the remedy. Begin by adding the apple cider vinegar and olive oil to a bowl and then mix until a smooth blend is formed.
Then, apply the blend to the cellulite area for at least fifteen minutes and then wrap the area with the plastic wrap, followed by the warm towel.
Apply the remedy twice a day, once before your morning shower, and a second time before you go to sleep.
There are also some home remedies for cellulite that you can try. Such as eating foods that will get rid of cellulite, such as green coffee or coffee grains. An infusion of horsetail can also help reduce cellulite.
