Best ways to get rid of cellulite
Judging from my own experience and my friends' experiences, I now know that we all have problems with cellulite. Whether it shows up on our thighs legs or even on the abs, cellulite is unsightly an might just signal a health problem.
I think that just about each and every one of us went through a stage where different cellulite treatments gave us a bad headache or at least bored us to death, without ever seeing some results. The thing you have to bare in mind is that cellulite is a problem to which you must constantly pay attention and not address it only when we know that the short skirts season is near.
Causes of Cellulite
In general, cellulite occurs after you've led an unhealthy lifestyle for some years, you lack an exercise routine, you drink a lot of coffee and, one of the worst perpetrators, you include tobacco in your life. So smoking, no exercise, bad eating habits and probably dehydration are the basic causes of your cellulite.
What is cellulite?
Cellulite is the result of abnormal fat storage, leading to uneven skin, enlarged pores and loss of skin elasticity due to the degeneration of collagen fibers. Although it may sound pretty scary when you read this definition, know that you can get rid of cellulite if you really want to.
“All you have to do” in order to get rid of cellulite is to change your usual diet, begin exercising regularly and put into practice a few tips that you continually avoid, I'm guessing.
The best proved ways to really reduce cellulite.
1. Adopt a healthy lifestyle.
Bottom line, you can't do it without changing you unhealthy life choices, you can't get rid of cellulite if you don't integrate healthier life patterns in your day to day life. It is crucial to include more fruit, vegetables and whole grains in your diet. Cherries, oranges, spinach and broccoli are one of the greatest foods recommended to fight against cellulite.
You also need to reduce high-fat foods, especially trans fat foods like refined oils, anything that's sweet, from cookies, to cakes, pies, frozen pizza, popcorn, margarine, different spreads etc. and foods that are high in simple carbs like bread, pasta, white sugar, you get the point. Upon waking up, you should drink some nettle leaf tea on an empty stomach. This tea will help you detoxify the body. Also, two liters of water a day are mandatory!
2. Start an exercise program!
Whether you make a subscription to the gym or decide to just run in the park, it is important that you turn this into a habit and try to move and pump some blood into those veins daily. Also, you can also choose to do even some simple exercises to tone buttocks in your own bedroom.
For this purpose, I recommend lunges. Stand straight with hands on hips and feet slightly apart. Put your right leg forward and place it on the floor on the entire sole. Then lower yourself until your back leg almost reaches the floor and return to starting position. Be careful that your front knee is bent at a 90 degree angle.
3. Cellulite massage for removing cellulite results
Cellulite massage relaxes the skin and stimulates the circulatory and lymphatic system, destroying the fat tissue. Also, massaging your skin will increase blood flow in the problem areas. It is one of the most effective ways of the treatment for cellulite. If you find it expensive to opt for a professional massage, you should know that you can try to do the cellulite massage on your own, with a special cream or shower gel. It is done with both hands or with a special brush.
Start by rubbing skin with rhythmic movements, going up and down on the areas with the orange peel look. Then continue with rapid friction, pressure with your palms or add some pressure with the fingertips or fists. Just be careful not to cause any bruising if you have a sensitive skin.
4. Cellulite creams to burn cellulite
Using cellulite creams can be another solution because they contain substances that help to "burn" fat cells, help eliminate toxins and drain water from the tissues. Usually, it's indicated that you do a cellulite massage with a cellulite cream, but there are some creams on the market that promise to give your good results on removing your cellulite without needing a certain massage technique.
5. Sea salt tightens your skin
Sea salt massage helps strengthen connective tissue in cellulite affected areas. The massage is done in the shower, but be sure not to rub the areas very hard, because it can be harsh on your skin. After you finish the exfoliation in the shower, use a moisturizer to nourish the area.
6. Exfoliate your skin to get rid of cellulite
Exfoliate your skin twice a week, especially on the problem areas. The process not only removes dead cells, but it also stimulates lymphatic circulation. Take a shower before peeling the skin with ground coffee and some egg whites and gently rub your thighs, legs or abs with this mixture, then rinse with warm water. You will immediately notice that your skin will become smoother.
7. Don't take hot showers to reduce cellulite
When you shower it's recommended that the water is not too hot. Alternating hot water with cold water stimulates the skin toning by improving blood flow to tissues.
8. Wraps are recommended because they increase skin elasticity and prevent inflammation.
You can try wrapping clay and chamomile, even at home. Mix clay powder with warm chamomile extract until they reach a smooth texture similar to a paste. Spread the mixture on the cellulite affected areas, let it dry and after 20 minutes remove it with warm water. This is also a wonderful homemade treatment for cellulite.
