Most women aged twenty years and older are either very familiar with cellulite or live in fear of it.Cellulite, the pockets of fat trapped beneath layers of skin to create that bumpy “orange peel” look on the thighs, upper arms and abdomen, is non-discriminatory: it affects the thin, the obese, the old and the young regardless of race or even gender (although men tend to not be affected by its appearance as much as women). There are a variety of treatment options for removing cellulite, from low-cost home remedies using ingredients found in your pantry to expensive long-term treatments performed by certified technicians or physicians. If you have a can of instant coffee in your cupboards, you have the basic ingredient for removing cellulite. Coffee!

In fact, caffeine derived from Guarana extracts and Retinol A, a compound derivative of Vitamin A, are the primary ingredients in most advertised cellulite creams. You can see this Guarana extract is on ingredient found in our It Works Defining Gel.
Brush massages are another home remedy: using a soft bristle brush, gently massage the problem areas in circular motions. Brush each area for at least ten minutes to loosen trapped fat cells.
