Below are the creams I personally use to reduce my cellulite. Any over the counter cream will work just fine compared to the more pricey just comes down to INGREDIENTS!! 

This is not a paid post this is just what I've found worked for me over time if used on a regular basis!!!

Yes,its not a permanent fix. It will come back if you don't keep up with it but it will be a noticeably big difference in smoothing out the skin texture. 
By the way ladies, don't be ashamed! Im at the thinest I've ever been and I'm admitting to having cellulite on the back and sides of my thighs! It doesn't mean you're fat. Its hereditary and part of life. You can also use these tricks to firm other areas and prevent.. like tummy and booty.

Before buying any cream look at the list of ingredients . Ive tried everything and Ive been in the beauty industry for over 10 years. I also have my esthetics lic so I've studied skin and product chemistry and ingredients. I know what I'm talking about.

First off, if you didn't know with any product you buy (even food labels) when you look at the ingredient list it goes in order of most potent to least. PAY ATTENTION to the first few mainly. If you see water or mineral oil.THROW IT AWAY! Its pretty much nothing. When talking about cellulite you want CAFFEINE. the closer up on the list the better. While other ingredients claim to soften and SMOOTH the skin we need something to help that bumpiness out. 

Choose a cream that works for you. At least once a day but its better used twice a day. The more the better. Especially because we sweat through the day so it rubs off. Im very anal with perfecting everything so I bought 2-3 diff types and I use one in the morning and massage it in.. the longer the better ( I often skip this step in the morning bc I don't have time but I try to stick to the night routine) then I use the other one at night fresh out of the shower when your skin is most absorbent! 

Massage hard and long. We won't always have time to do each step as perfect obviously but just so you know the hard massage helps to work the cream in and also helps to stimulate the lymphatic system. I won't bore you with getting more technical with how cellulite is created I'll just get to the point of this blog.  That is why cupping and other aggressive machines at med spas are available and work much better ! Theyre more expensive but Ive heard they work! I haven't tried yet but I will keep you posted because next month Im going to try it! Summer body here we come!!

I also recently got a DRY BRUSH ( photo below) google the benefits on this there are so many! It would be great to do this daily first thing in the morning or at night before apply cream. Its great to move the blood around under the skin. Again, I don't always find the time. It kind of hurts because you need to be aggressive but you will see results! See Below for photo reference.

The before and afters are not me but I wanted to show what you can achieve if you stay consistent. That is the main secret. I would say you can see results after a just a week. Its always diff for me but recently I started my routine up again and 3-4 days later I spray tanned and it hid it all! It was like a miracle. little TIPS AND TRICKS of the business! Working always in a bikini or half naked I have to look my best head to toe at all times. So, I'm constantly researching and trying different things out.

If you have other techniques or lotions that work please comment below I would love to try!

NOW next is my all time BIGGEST SECRET!! after buying all these creams and seeing CAFFEINE as the main working ingredient I thought of the idea to use pure coffee grinds. I googled it and people buy coffee scrubs for this reason so why not use PURE COFFEE OR CAFFEINE?! I keep coffee in my shower and use it after I wash every day! This is what I notice makes a difference in a few days. Scrub and massage it in then wash off.

Use this and lotions and dry brushing if possible and you will be set!

Try aiming to drink a gallon of water a day to flush toxins out of your system! water is the biggest beauty secret of all! If that sounds crazy then at least up your water intake by double of what you're drinking now! Mix all that with working out the areas you have cellulite.. for me its thighs. So, I hike a lot, squat heavy and do a lot of stair master. The tighter the skin the smoother the appearance ! If I slack i notice a huge difference. Take care of your body from the outside and also within!



I've been spray tanning for years and love it! I've gotten airbrush tans and they are great too but they're more money and often you need appointments so I prefer to just do the spray booth.

Its about 20-30$ and If you prep correctly It will last a week. Here is what I personally find works the best!!

1. Always shower RIGHT before .. you want to make sure you do not have any lotions, oils or sweat on you. Otherwise, the spray tan will not stick or be even.

2. Spray tan doesn't work well on dry skin. That is how it gets blotchy. Use a wash cloth or a coarse loofa to exfoliate your skin head to toe. Scrub really good. I even use a razor even if I don't have to shave because it will take off a layer of dead skin. I then use a body scrub to make sure my skin is as smooth and soft as possible. After shower I use the tower and rub my skin all over to exfoliate even more. This step is crucial for achieving a long lasting EVEN tan!! DO NOT USE ANY LOTION OR DEODORANT. 

3. I head right to the tanning salon before I get the chance to sweat
and wear a loose sundress always. I normally always get the DARK color as in my photos here. I feel for my photo shoots that color looks best on my olive skin. Sometimes I do medium for a natural look but its not much of a difference with my natural skin tone. Make sure to use the barrier creme they provide a little on the bottom of feet, hands and knees. ( extra dry skin areas) It helps to absorb less color. I always wear the hair cap and the foot booties. Make sure the hair cap is not touching your face. (lesson learned the hard way) Make sure you know the correct standing positions. This photo I look extra dark just because of the lighting! SEE OTHER PHOTO TO COMPARE. This is DARK shade.

4. Most machines have drying passes to dry your tan and that would be enough to get dressed. If not make sure you stand naked for a few minutes and air dry. I take a baby wipe and spray water bottle to wash off the bottoms of my feet and I was my hands in the sink. I take a tissue and blot my face lightly to get the extra brown color off. 

ALL DONE! I don't shower or sweat till the next day. Do not use any lotions containing oils. Mineral oil which is in lots of lotions will remove your tan. I made the mistake of using baby oil once and found that out! They make certain lotions that will moisturize and extend your tan. Moisturized skin will hold a tan better then dry skin. When I shower I use basic soap and try to not go over areas I really want to keep tan. Just let the water run down but don't use a loofa. Only use hands. Blot towels don't rub. My tan always last a good week!  Let men know if this works for you to!!
