If you’re looking for a natural, vegan solution to help get rid of your cellulite, the beauty team at Teami is here to help with our incredible Green Tea Scrub!
Everyone has cellulite, right? Right! So it shouldn’t be some secret, shameful thing no one wants to acknowledge. We want to help you love the body you’re in, cellulite and all, but if you’re just looking to feel a bit more comfortable in shorts or a bathing suit this summer, we can help there too!
First off, let’s start out by answering what cellulite is, anyway. Cellulite is totally normal and happens when fat deposits (usually in the thigh and buttocks areas) push through connective tissue beneath the skin. This can cause a dimpley appearance in the skin and affects 80-90% of women.
Cellulite is nothing abnormal or strange, it just happens to a lot of women because we tend to store more fat in the hips and thighs than men.
But if you want to reduce the appearance of cellulite, there are some tips and tricks that can help!
A Scrub with Caffeine Helps Reduce Cellulite
I’m sure you’ve heard about scrubs that help get rid of cellulite, but does that do anything? Well, actually, yes! Exfoliating scrubs that are packed with caffeine and antioxidants can very well prove to reduce the appearance of cellulite on the thighs.
Caffeine helps to dilate the blood vessels in the skin to smooth out dimples caused by cellulite, and there have also been extensive studies in which scientists tested the efficacy of caffeine within skin care.
One of these studies showed that when caffeine is included in skin care, it can help to thicken the epidermis, which definitely improves the look of cellulite.
In another study, caffeine used in a scrub specifically helped to reduce the circumference of cellulite in patients over time. So the research of caffeine in skin care definitely backs helping with cellulite if that’s what you’re after!
So can rubbing coffee grounds on your skin help cellulite? Well, sure, it can, but we here at Teami prefer a much more convenient, less messy scrub that doesn’t waste that precious coffee. Our Green Tea Scrub is packed with cellulite-fighting caffeine and full of more antioxidants than coffee grounds! So why are antioxidants important?
Free radicals are the number one cause of skin breaking down, becoming less elastic, and causing an increase in the look and diameter of cellulite. And one of the best ways to fight free radicals is through antioxidants!
Antioxidants freely donate their electrons to free radicals, which keeps the free radicals stable and stops them from taking electrons from other places like your skin or other important organs. When fighting free radicals, antioxidants are a must.
One of the most powerful sources of antioxidant power is quality matcha green tea, so if you’re looking for a scrub to help reduce the look of your cellulite, a matcha tea scrub is the way to go! Coffee scrubs contain some antioxidants, but not as much as green tea, so we’d suggest going with the green tea scrub every time.
Massaging Motions Help Reduce Cellulite
The physical act of massaging a scrub into your skin can also help reduce the appearance of cellulite. Along with the caffeine, regular massage stimulates blood flow in the affected area, which helps the look and elasticity of your skin while reducing the diameter of cellulite.
So get in there with our all-natural green tea sugar scrub and keep consistent with it! The massaging, caffeine, and antioxidants can totally help reduce the appearance of your cellulite so you feel like your best self!
But either way, if you have cellulite on your thighs when you sit down or not… just get out there and rock that cute pair of shorts anyway!
