Get rid of cellulite with the most basic tips
Getting ready for bikini season? Looking to lose weight and beat cellulite for that matter? If the answer is YES, don't feel bad about it. Almost all women have cellulite on some part of their body. It doesn’t make a difference whether you are skinny or fat. Cellulite also happens when our blood flow slows down and collagen separates which allows fats to come up to the surface of our skin giving a not so appealing cottage cheese look to the skin.
These give our skin lumpy and dimpled look which can make us live a life of misery. Some of the causes of cellulite include age, hormones, a bad diet and poor lifestyle changes.
What are the best ways to prevent cellulite?
Of course there are a few ways in which you can prevent these fatty deposits to build:
1. Have an anti cellulite diet
The main reason for development of cellulite is poor physical health and accumulation of excess fat. Although weight is not necessarily a cause of cellulite, you should prevent adding excess fat on your body. You should eat whole foods, healthy fats, lean protein and foods filled with fibre.
These are also known as alkaline forming foods and can help you to draw out the acidic toxic matters from the cells.
Processed and fatty food products like cheese, sausages, cake, biscuits and other similar products must also be avoided. These products can cause toxin overload in our body because they contain additives, sweeteners and salts.
Oily fish like salmon and mackerel can also be consumed because these can help us metabolize our body fats. Consumption of fibre rich food is also very important because these can help us to both expel and digest our food efficiently.
And while we're still on the topic of a healthy lifestyle, drinking and smoking also cause cellulite.
2. Drink water to flush out toxins and remove cellulite
Water is the cheapest solution to all problems. Make sure that you drink enough water to keep your body hydrated always. Fresh fruits and vegetables can even help you to remain hydrated. Water can help you to flush out the toxins from your body and further can help you to prevent lumpiness.
Dehydration can give your skin with lumps and dull looking. Also, dehydration can lead to increase in hunger thus eating more. And we know what eating too much does to our body, right?
If you don’t like drinking plain water you can even squeeze half a lemon into it to give it some taste. You could also try some teas, I've already written on the topic of anti cellulite teas.
3. Use anti cellulite products
There are a lot of anti cellulite products filled with good anti cellulite ingredients. It's usually best to try some anti cellulite creams that contain Centella asiatica as their ingredient, for example. This ingredient will make your skin more elastic.
Another effective way is to use Ginkgo Biloba which is also a very powerful antioxidant to oxidize the fat cells and to increase blood circulation and in turn will prevent cellulite. Two other ingredients that must be present in cellulite prevention creams are retinol and caffeine. Caffeine products are known to shrink fat cells but these might show temporary results.
Retinol stimulates collagen production which can make our skin thicker and more elastic. Thicker skin is also advantageous because cellulite are less noticeable on them. These creams must be used regularly after taking some expert’s advice. Be cautious that you don’t use fake products because these might have negative effects. You can even consult experts before using them.
Along with this you can even wear bio ceramic coated neoprene shorts. You can wear these shorts just an hour a day to see best results. These known are known to have clay like substance that can help you to retain the body heat. These can also help you to open up the pores of your skin and in turn will increase the absorbent of active ingredients of anti cellulite creams and anti cellulite gels and lotions.
4. Lose weight to lose cellulite
The most important thing that you must remember when you think of cellulite prevention is reduction of excess weight. This can be done by exercising regularly.
Weight training is usually best for beating cellulite.
You can even join kick boxing classes because it has number of advantages such a reduction of excess weight, improving skin elasticity, etc. People suffering from obesity problem will see the results in just 4 to 6 weeks. Even slight reduction in weight can improve their skins appearance. We can even go for strength training to improve the tone of muscle tissues making our legs and butts look evener. High intensity training lessons can show us results just by doing it three to four times a week.
5. Be careful with thinning creams
This may come as a surprise but skin thinning creams actually make cellulite more prominent. These creams contain chemicals that make these more noticeable. Thinning of skin will not help you reduce, remove or prevent lumpiness rather they will make your skin look dull and aged.
What can you do instead? Try moisturising your skin with natural oils and creams such as olive oil, coconut oil or other organic moisturisers.
These tips will surely help you to get rid of your orange peeled skin. Make these tips an important part of your regular life and see the results. If still it does not help try consulting some experts before your figure gets distorted.
