A healthy lifestyle for healthy skin without cellulite
In the first part of the article we've talked about why women get cellulite, what are the causes of cellulite and what hormones influence the appearance of cellulite. Now we're going to explore some methods of banishing and reducing cellulite.
Do anti cellulite creams and anti cellulite gels work?
Haven't we tried them all? Anti cellulite creams, anti cellulite gels, anti cellulite wraps, we're willing to pay just about any amount we can afford in order to reduce cellulite
Unfortunately, there likely are no topical solutions on the market today that will make much of a difference when compared to an improved lifestyle, diet and exercise plan.
Nowadays, a good marketing plan can sell just about anything, miracle skin products included. I'm not here to bash on all the anti cellulite products out there but, let's face it, most of them are useless. Plus, there's no need to spend high amounts of money on inefficient beauty products if you don't plan on shifting your approach on your lifestyle.
Reduce cellulite with a changed lifestyle
It's true that there's not much we can do to reduce cellulite but the basics are: exercising regularly and a healthy diet. As we've previously discussed, when it comes to cellulite, you either have it, or you don’t, and your environment can improve or exacerbate its appearance. If you have it, you can make it look less pronounced even if you can never really get rid of it.
First and foremost, start moving! As mentioned in the previous article, exercise lowers insulin levels, especially if you work out at high intensity for about 20-60 minutes daily. Even household activities burn calories (such as cleaning your house, working outside in your yard, shopping for groceries or clothes, and standing to cook food) can all decrease your body’s insulin levels and make your muscle cells more receptive to burning up carbs and fats for energy. The sad part is that many of us just sit for most of the day and miss this opportunity to be active and move our bodies.
It’s important to realize that sitting on your behind all day long doesn't do much for improving blood flow to our thighs or making our butt look more shapely. Areas that are prone to cellulite are known to have reduced blood flow already, so anything you can do to increase circulation may help.
Make it a goal to get up and move around as much as you can every day. Even consider investing in a stand-up desk, so your booty can get a break when you’re working or just surfing the web. It's said that you shouldn't stand on your behind for more than 50 minutes and that fat deposits appear after only 30 minutes of sitting!
