Actually, it does help with the 'appearance' of cellulite somewhat, but does it get rid of cellulite? No. I don't believe that cellulite can be approached as a single solution. I think in order to make a significant difference, you have to use every weapon in your arsenal and dry brushing is a good one, but that alone is not enough....
You need to reduce fat and increase muscle mass for starters. Dry brushing can't really do that.
You need to improve circulation to the areas which dry brushing can SUPPOSEDLY do, but I think massage is needed too and does a better job of it
You need to thicken the skin in those areas. Dry brushing helps with that for sure, but using retinol in that area in addition to dry brushing can really help...
After all of that effort temporary tighteners (cellulite creams containing caffeine for example) a fake tan (the only kind of "healthy tan") and reflective 'glowing' lotion strategically placed will help camoflage (sp?) what remains...
Do all these things with a healthy diet and you will see improvement, but will the cellulite go away? For some MAYBE...for most no...but less cellulite or the appearance of such is better than nothing....
So yeah, dry brush away...It will help but not cure....

Like Tigerlilly says, dry skin brushing can help cellulite, but it is actually very good for your lymph system. I always dry skin brush every morning before I jump into the shower (always in the direction of the heart). It really is a good boost to the system.

I dry brush every morning too! I don't know about all the other benefits (I'm kinda a newbie) but my skin is like SILK now.

thank you guys so much for your response. I know that it is effective for the facial skin and I was thinking that dry brushing could increase circulation in the skin on my legs which could possibly decrease the look of cellulite on my legs. I realize nothing can really get rid of the cellulite itself but if I can just reduce the look of it a little bit then that would be great. I'm just glad I had a positive response from some people. I'm not sure what happened to the sarcastic responses from the others but it made me feel pretty stupid when I was just trying to get some information. so thank you again for some positive responses.

The invigorating feeling it gives you, exfoliating the skin and its lymphatic circulation benefits are some wonderful reasons to try this easy beauty treatment. May help in cellulite breakdown. To find out more - Welcome to visit source- /beauty-care-skin-tip.html

Hi there,

Dry brushing is so good for skin and makes you feel good so I suggest you try it anyway.

It will certainly improve your skin tone and cannot harm cellulite. I think your legs will look better if you persevere with dry-skin brushing,

Best wishes,

redrose

I agree with Redrose. And I think skin brushing is more likely to help cellulite, than all the expensive lotions and potions that purport to do the job.

Do you guys think dry brushing would help cellulite on legs?
I am going to start dry brushing asap!! Have a look-- this page definitly says it will help:

I havent posted 15 times as yet-- so it wont let me put up the address... Google this: natural health dry brushing skin

Good luck! I am happy to improve my vasculitus (cold hands and feet!) why dont they tell you these things at all the doctors offices and specialists!!??

(I know why-- if they cured everyone they would put themselves out of business!)
Cheers,
mary

possibly...maybe... doctors don't push this idea because this is more of a simple/non-medicated approach to improving health. Just a thought.
