Cellulite is a naturally occurring phenomenon that typically happens as we age…but that doesn’t mean we have to like it! In addition to a healthy diet and exercise routine, incorporating collagen-loving phytonutrients like vitamin C and lycopene can help us ameliorate the appearance of this stubborn reminder of the passing of time. Learn how to flush out cellulite with citrus for a tasty way to tackle it!

Oranges are the poster child of vitamin C, a free-radical remover that boosts collagen production. What makes collagen key to reducing the appearance of cellulite? It’s the reduction and weakening of collagen in the connective tissue found in the skin’s dermal layer that contributes to the wavy, dimpling effect we know as cellulite. So by repairing and restoring this connective tissue we help our bodies stay smooth, naturally.
Lycopene-rich grapefruit help reduce the appearance of cellulite over time by also preventing the degradation of collagen, doing the same as vitamin C to reduce the appearance of cellulite by supporting strong, healthy skin. Lycopene also improves blood circulation while correcting cell imbalances that can lead to cellulite. Also higher amounts of fiber (even in the juice) helps to keep you feeling full, reducing overall caloric intake, which aids in the reduction of the fat that causes cellulite.

The Juicer: PURE Juicer
I made the Cellulite Melter on the PURE Juicer! This machine is the tip-of-the-top in juicing technology!
The magic lies in the hydraulic press this machine employs, which gives the best juice yield and nutrient extraction in the industry. For home and light commercial use, the PURE sits at the head of its class.
Because of that hopper, it’s super fast and easy to use. But that speed doesn’t reduce the quality one bit. As a true cold-press juicer, you get great nutrient extraction and a good yield. It’s also very easy to clean, which is a real bonus. I recommend this machine for any home juicer, from beginner to master!
