Cellulite occurs when the fibers that connect skin to fat cells stretch, causing the fat cells to bulge, according to MedlinePlus. As a result, the skin develops a rippled appearance. Cellulite is caused by a variety of factors, including slow metabolism, poor diet and dehydration issues. More research is needed on the effectiveness of natural supplements for cellulite; however, some supplements may target fluid buildup, minimizing the appearance of this skin issue.

Step 1

Take a multivitamin that contains vitamins B6, C and E. A B6 vitamin may get rid of excess fluid buildup, improving cellulite’s appearance. Vitamin C, a detoxifier and skin strengthening supplement, may also improve the appearance of cellulite. Your multivitamin should also contain vitamin E, which improves circulation and promotes healthy skin.

Step 2

Boost calcium intake. Getting enough calcium may reduce body fat, minimizing the appearance of cellulite. Women and men ages 19 to 50 require at least 1,000 mg. People over the age of 50 years need at least 1,200 mg, according to the Office of Dietary Supplements.

Step 3

Consume more antioxidants. Antioxidants such as co-enzyme Q10, black pepper extract and cinnamon root extract may increase circulation and minimize the appearance of cellulite. The fatty acid conjugulated linoleic acid, or CLA, may also assist in burning body fat and minimizing cellulite, according to Consuming green tea, which is also high in antioxidants, may boost the body’s ability to burn calories, aiding with cellulite appearance.

Step 4

Use a dandelion supplement. Dandelion supplements, which works as a diuretic, releases trapped fluids under the skin. This substance is also high in antioxidants. Dandelion may combat fluid retention, giving the skin a smoother appearance.
