How to fight with cellulite?
One of the things that women dread seeing on their body is cellulite – those annoying, dimpled little things that make shorts during summer time the bane of many women’s existence. Fret not though, for one does not necessarily have to accept this condition for there are natural ways (10, to be exact) to reduce that darn dimpling!
- Embark on an alkaline diet. The fight against cellulite always starts from within! Healthy food such as fruits and vegetables (especially if they are organic products) have properties that draw out the cellulite-forming toxins in the body, so get at least five servings of these every day and work your way towards more as you progress.
- Drink more water. Cleansing on the inside does a lot to fight the appearance of cellulite. Drinking the requisite 6-8 glasses of water a day will keep your cells hydrated and flush out toxins faster and easier.
- Make exercise a regular part of your routine. It’s an old tip that’s been told so many times, but it really does make a difference in how your skin will look: regular exercise stimulates muscles, which will reduce the appearance of cellulite. The reason for this is cellulite is partly caused by muscle atrophy, and so the more you move the faster you can bid them adieu.
- Scrub up with a cuppa Joe. Your morning cup’s residue can do double duty by turning into a yummy smelling and cellulite-nixing body spa treat come nighttime. Coffee stimulates blood circulation and lymphatic fluids to draw out the toxins from areas where cellulites appear. Simply make a thick paste with water and scrub-a-dub-dub all over those cellulites!
- Include essential oils in your beauty ritual. After a nice scrub, firm up all the more by massaging and hydrating cellulite-prone areas with olive oil or juniper oil, both of which penetrate deep into your skin and help firm up tissues to reduce the appearance of cellulite.
- Soak up with ACV. Apple cider vinegar also works to draw out toxins in your body. Simply add a cup or two to your warm bath and soak away.
- Use natural salt. Refined salt dehydrates your body big time, so this means your skin loses suppleness and further accentuates the appearance of cellulites. Switch up to the healthier alternative such as Himalayan pink salt or natural sea salt.
- Start a skin dry brushing routine. A dry bristle brush that you run in circular motions gently on cellulite prone areas will stimulate the lymphatic glands and release toxins trapped there.
- Choose a good cover-up makeup. For times when you have no choice but to bare some skin, cover up the dimpling with natural cosmetics that may also contain cellulite-reducing essential oils and ingredients in the same way you conceal and cover up pimples and other blemishes.
- Drink a lemon and cayenne pepper concoction. Mix these two ingredients in water and drink up to three times a day for a speedy way to detoxify, jump start your metabolism, alkalize your body and get your blood circulation going.
