Vitamin-E Soap Ingredients 1/4 cup Aloe Vera Gel (100% only) 30 ml vitamin E oil 1 drop of green soap coloring (optional) 340 grams of shredded basic soap Enough water when put together with the aloe potion for both to measure of 260 ml . Directions Start with the soap and put in a pan. Measure the aloe and put together with the water for both to make 260 ml . Stir this mixture into the grated soap in a pan. Heat and stir until melted. Add the vitamin E oil and coloring, stir well, and pour into molds. Herbal Hand Bath Ingredients 1 tbsp of herbs ( all or one of : chamomile, nettle, sage, coltsfoot, calendula) 1 liter of water Directions Bring the water to boil and pour over the herbs Let the infusion cool to 38-40 degrees Celsius soak your hands in it for about 15-20 minutes. Dry your hands thoroughly and apply a rich moisturizer Coffee Can Help If you spread coffee grounds on your cellulite (but don't drink it!), the caffeine will assist in stimulating tissue sludge and speeding cellulite removal. You will need to put down an old towel or some newspaper to catch the mess, and then all you do is spread warm coffee grounds on the areas you wish to treat and wrap them tightly to your skin. You should be as warm as possible as heat will always help the process. This mixture can be left for up to an hour, and can be used on the days you are not using your preferred seaweed mud wrap! Coffee Grounds and Baby Oil Using Coffee grounds to get rid of cellulite works, but can be messy. Try mixing the coffee grounds with a little Baby Oil and rub it in just before you take a shower. Much less mess and the ground simply wash off in the shower. Herbal wrap for cellulite Mix a cup of corn oil with 1/2 cup of grapefruit juice and 2 teaspoons dried thyme. Massage into hip, thigh, and buttock areas. Cover with plastic wrap to lock in body heat. For extra results lay a heating pad over each area for five minutes. Scrub the skin For cellulite, scrub the skin with a bristle brush or loofah. Brush in slow sweeps, always toward the heart. There are gloves and mitts available to do this, but they're not necessary. Try to do this at least five minutes every day. Effective methods of cellulite removal will include anything that can purify and stimulate your system. Let me remind you again about drinking lots of water here! Green Tea Drinking green tea is another little-known method of cellulite removal. At least three cups a day of this Chinese beverage should be consumed for an effective cellulite treatment. It is said to work by breaking down fat deposits under the skin. Lemon Liver Flush Often, performing a simple liver cleanse will boost the process of removing cellulite. An easy and safe way of cleansing your liver is to take a whole lemon, scrub its skin thoroughly and cut it into eight pieces. Place them in the food processor and add about a cup-and-a-half of water. Add two tablespoons of virgin olive oil and process until smooth. You can either strain the resulting drink, or drink it with the bits (some like them, and they're good for the digestive system). This will flush a lot of impurities out of your liver, leaving your system fresher for the job of cleansing your tissues. Cellulite Buster Blend half a cup of coffee beans with half a cup of salt, a teaspoon of kelp (seaweed) and four tablespoons of olive oil until it creates a paste. Apply the mixture over the dimpled skin and gently rub in circular motion with hands. Rinse well. Seaweed wrap Ideally use seaweed powder and baby oil to form a paste . apply paste over thighs and buttocks . raw seaweed should be wrapped around the area to detoxify. If you are unable to find lengths of seaweed at your health food store or supermarket, use plastic wrap. Wrap completely around the upper leg and let set for a few minutes. To intensify the treatment, take an old-fashioned rolling pin and roll the area to further smooth out the cellulite. Unwrap, wash & rinse thoroughly. Enjoy health and beautify yourself.
