Essential oils can help prevent cellulite by removing toxins that accumulate in the fat calls. Combined with an exfoliant, they also help promote blood circulation, allowing the skin to regenerate. Look for essential oils that have antiseptic, diuretic and astringent qualities, renowned to flush toxins and improve the tone and elasticity of the skin, which are key in preventing and improving the appearance of cellulite.

The best way to use essential oils to help prevent cellulite is to dilute a few drops in your favourite carrier oil and massage into the skin using your hand or a brush. You can also add a few drops to a homemade body scrub and massage into the skin in circular motion.

Here are some of the best essential oils to help detoxify, tone and regenerate the skin:
