Castor oil may prove to be a successful home remedy for cellulite. It promotes the production of collagen and elastin, and penetrates deep into the skin. Castor oil is a terrific moisturizer that helps treat cellulite.
- Take some castor oil in a bowl and lukewarm it in the microwave.
- Apply a generous amount of warm castor oil to the affected area, and gently massage in circular motion for 10-20 mins. This helps to increase your lymphatic drainage and get rid of trapped toxins.
- Wrap the area with a thin, cotton cloth. Using a heating pad or hot water bottle apply heat on the area to allow the castor oil to penetrate the skin.
- Wait for one hour and have shower with lukewarm water.
You can also blend castor oil with grapefruit, lemon, cedar and lavender essential oils and rub the mixture into your skin for an efficient treatment to reduce cellulite.
