10 Foods That Beat Cellulite

Fill your shopping basket with these cellulite-fighting superfoods

Cellulite affects 90% of women and pays no heed to shape or size. But that doesn’t mean it has to ruin your summer. That dreaded dimpled texture is often the result of a sluggish lymphatic system – predominantly caused by poor circulation, a slow metabolism and an unbalanced diet.

Processed foods, especially those loaded with salt and sweeteners, are particularly liable to cause cellulite by encouraging the build up of toxins in the body. Some studies also indicate that caffeine may promote cellulite, so try to limit your daily tea and coffee intake.

But just as some foods will make it worse, others can reduce or improve the appearance of those dreaded dimples. Combined with daily body brushing, a few dietary changes may be all it takes to kickstart your circulation and eradicate those hard-to-shift fat deposits.

Enter the Cellulite Diet – our pick of the best foods to reduce cellulite and reveal a smoother and sleeker you.

Acidic fruits are great at breaking down and flushing out toxins which cause fat deposits to become trapped under the skin.

  • Many sufferers are hailing grapefruit juice as a breakthrough in the fight against cellulite, whilst beauty experts have suggested fighting the problem from the outside in by massaging grapefruit oil (diluted in carrier or vegetable oil) directly onto the affected area.
  • Rich in methoxylated bioflavonoids and collagen-boosting vitamin C, oranges can improve blood circulation and rebalance cells.
  • Similarly, lemons alkalise when digested by the body, which may restore your body’s natural PH levels, support healthy bacteria and assist in the removal of toxins. Kickstart your Cellulite Diet by beginning the day with a few slices in a cup of hot water, or try this roasted new potato, fennel and orange salad.
