Can soaking in a hot tub reduce cellulite?


Heard the rumours about hot tubs reducing the appearance of cellulite? Want to know if it’s really true?! We’ve done a bit of investigation in to whether using a hot tub really does reduce cellulite, and how it can benefit you!

So, what even is cellulite? Cellulite is a very common, harmless skin condition that causes lumpy, dimpled flesh, usually on the thighs, hips, buttocks, and abdomen, but can also be seen on upper arms. The condition can be seen in men and women, and it has nothing to do with your weight either – even athletes can be affected by it! Although harmless, many people try to reduce the appearance of cellulite by losing weight, exercising more, massaging the area, or even using creams targeted at reducing cellulite. However, it has now been suggested that a regular hydromassage in a hot tub can reduce the appearance of cellulite too! Yay!

Cellulite has several causes; weight, muscle tone, blood flow, hormones and even genetics! Whilst hot tubs can’t change your genetics, they can help with tone and blood flow! The warm water and massage stimulates the blood vessels increasing circulation. It also helps tone the body tissue, reduces fluid retention, and relieves swelling. When you add all of these benefits together you may well find that the result is a reduction in the appearance of cellulite!

Top tip! To combat the more troublesome areas, use your Jacuzzi’s customisable jets to get the perfect hydromassage! 

But don’t just take our word for it! There have been scientific studies supporting this theory. An article from the New England Journal of Medicine described group of the people involved in the study had to soak in a hot tub for thirty minutes a day, six days a week for three weeks. Overall, they lost an average of nearly four pounds each! Proof that soaking in a hot tub can help you lose weight, tone your body, and reduce the appearance of your cellulite!
