Before talking about stage three cellulite it is important to differentiate it from cellulitis. Cellulite is not hard to spot, and it can be mostly found on your legs.
Here are the four basic types:
Cellulite Type #0
You know that it’s there, because it is made out of fat, and you know that if you don’t pay enough attention it will appear, but at this present stage you can’t see it and it won’t appear if you pinch your skin.
Cellulite Type #1
Type one cellulite is only visible when you pinch your skin, you can’t see it when you stand nor lie down.
Cellulite Type #2
Type two cellulite is visible when you stand, but as you lay down it disappears.
Cellulite Type #3
There are visible dimples on the skin regardless of whether you sit or stand.
Now that you have determined what type of cellulite you possess you need to do these massage techniques on each leg for five minutes.
If you’re doing it on your own, it would be best for you to do it standing up. You can put your leg on a table or a chair and you add a bit of massage oil. If you can find the one that affects cellulite, it would be great. Just ask your pharmacist and they’ll recommend something.
So the secret weapons are vacuum cups. You go to your local store and then try and find some silicone cups that look like this:
You can also find them online (they are quite cheap, about 10 Euros/US Dollars).

So, after applying the massage oil, you press the cup against your skin in order to create the vacuum and then you gently move it as if you were shaving your skin.
As said above, you need to do this for five minutes on each leg. After that, your skin will look red (that is good) and then you can apply more oil or a cellulite cream. But the massage doesn’t stop there. After 10 minutes, as your skin calms down you will be able to take a better look at your skin and see where the big lumps are. Cellulite cupping treatment is good to get rid of small lumps of cellulite, but for bigger ones, you need the pinch and pull technique.
Pinch and pull technique for cellulite is basically what it says it is. You see where the big lumps are, you pinch it and then you pull it. You can determine the amount of pressure you need and then apply it where necessary.
It would be best to avoid this technique in the inner thigh as the skin is soft, but if you feel that your skin can take it, feel free.
After two minutes of pinch and pull technique on each leg, you’re done. Apply the same soothing oil and you can lie down and watch your favorite TV series or read a book.
The most important thing is to remember to do this two times a week, just two times a week find 15 minutes to do these massages and you’ll see results pretty fast.
