Massaging is proven as one of effective methods for reducing the appearance of cellulite in various parts of the body, especially on the thighs and buttocks. As this is a natural treatment for the uneven texture skin resulted from fat build ups, massages do not have any bad side effects on the body skin. Massages can possibly improve lumpy skin caused by cellulite in some ways:
- By promoting blood circulation on the affected area. Proper blood circulation is essential in providing oxygen and nutrients required by skin cells in order to promote collagen production. Sufficient collagen is crucial for skin regeneration and may improve the cellulite-affected area.
- By removing toxin build ups beneath the skin. Toxic build ups affect new skin tissue growth and thus, may result in uneven skin appearance. Massages can stimulate toxin build ups and remove it from the body tissues.
- By reducing amount of fluids in areas containing cellulite. Excessive fluids among the skin connective tissues cause the tissues to be loosely plied to one another. This type of connective tissues ply causes bumpy look over the skin affected by cellulite.
How often should you massage cellulite?
Massages do not remove cellulite. Yet, it helps preventing and in some cases, lessening the appearance of cellulite on thighs, bumps, and legs. By giving the three above effects, massages get rid of lumpy skin appearance caused by cellulite. However, massages do not beat the cellulite by itself. There are some other remedies that should be taken to make the effects work effectively.

Although massaging your cellulite-affected skin can be effective, the effect will not be permanent, and any messages cannot eliminate the lumpy and bumpy appearance for good. Besides, it takes some massaging treatments before you are able to see the effect on the cellulite. Commonly, twice-a-week massages are required to do continuously within 6 weeks in order to reduce the lumpiness and bumps you find on cellulite-affected skin.
If you prefer to perform these massages at home, do it twice a day or before having a shower. This will promote proper blood circulation, which is not only give yourself some comfort, but also help reducing the toxins inside the body. Any kinds of massages can be beneficial for cellulite, but certain types aim directly to the structure of the tissues related to cellulite formation and thus, are more advantageous.

Proper massages for helping cellulite
All over the world, there are numerous massaging techniques delivered from many different cultures. While all kinds of massages will give benefit to the skin cells, certain types of massages are more recommended. Regarding cellulite formation, some beneficial massages are:
The Turkish Ha mam Mitts
This is a 600-year tradition from Turki, which uses bath mits made of silk and cellulose to promote smooth skin and reduce bumpy area. Massaging the cellulite using the mits will promote even skin surface, although the effect is not permanent. Using this mist or any standard loofah mits to massage cellulite-affected skin area will give your skin some benefits that will eventually reduce the sharp visibility of cellulite.
Deep tissues massages
Deep tissues massages aim at the skin tissues beneath the surface of the skin. Stimulating these tissues will promote proper skin cell growth that is beneficial in promoting even appearance of the skin. Deep tissues massage that aim directly on the fat tissues will loosen excess fatty deposits that result in cellulite. Eventually, these loosened fatty deposits will dissolve, reducing the lumpy and bumpy skin appearance.
In addition to fat deposits, cellulite is also triggered by toxin build ups in the skin cells. Lymphatic massage will stimulate the lymph to get rid of the toxins built up beneath the skin. Disposed toxins will eventually improve the skin health and thus, minimize the appearance of cellulite on thighs, bumps, and abdomen. Dry body brushing that is combined with lymphatic or deep tissues massages will give a lot of benefits to the skin appearance by reducing fat and toxic build up, and promoting proper blood circulation into the most affected area. Sufficient oxygen and nutrients will boost the appearance of dented skin surface affected by cellulite.
