1. Pineapple

Rich in potassium and vitamin C, pineapple is also chock-full of bromelain, which helps increase blood circulation. Bananas provide similar benefit.


2. Water

Drinking at least eight glasses of water each day will help plump the skin and make it look thicker and more supple to camouflage cellulite. Water also helps the body release stored toxins.

3. Asparagus

This healthy food strengthens veins and capillaries so that blood circulation is normalized. It also acts as a diuretic, forcing the body to release toxins.

4. Green Tea

Green tea contains catechins, which have been shown to help prevent the breakdown of collagen, a necessary component for strong, firm skin.

5. Sunflower Seeds

These antioxidant-rich seeds are said to help strengthen weak tissue, which can be linked to cellulite.

6. Chili Peppers

This spicy food increases the body's ability to produce heat internally, so that the body can burn fat faster.

7. Bananas

A good booster for blood vessels and great for assisting in healthy circulation, they're also a good source of potassium, vitamin B6 and magnesium.

8. Broccoli

Contains alpha lipoic acid, which helps prevent the hardening of collagen caused by sugar. It's also a good source of selenium and calcium.

9. Citrus

All are excellent sources of vitamin C. Orange contain methoxylated bioflavonoids, which can improve circulation and strengthen capillaries.
Oily fish

Salmon, sardines, tuna, trout and bass are all low in fat and high in cellulite-fighting proteins and minerals. Also good sources of essential fatty acids.
Pears

A good detoxifier, pears can help reduce the effects of pollutants in the body, assisting the lymphatic system. A good source of fiber and potassium, too.
