Cellulite – Wavelet, dimpled skin surrounding the buttocks and the thigh area.
If there is one skin misshape that we all can agree on, it would probably be cellulite. Its so unwanted, unattractive and despised, by practically every woman on the planet earth, but the frequently asked questions that come along with cellulite is what really causes this and how to get rid of it? Cellulite is believed to develop for many reasons. First and foremost, heredity is the root. Your makers could partially be the ones to blame, however your diet plays a huge role in this as well. Eating processed foods can be tough on our digestive system, causing our bodies to have a hard time digesting these foods. So rule number one, across the board: Stay away from processed foods.
Cellulite tends to form when blockage occurs around the areas where our bodies store fat. Once these areas become blocked, the surface of the skin is now stretched, which causes that light, rippled effect; cellulite. Now that you know its causes, you’re probably wondering how the hell do you get rid of it? Well, unfortunately there are no special creams to banish this, however there are ways to reduce it.
The 3 steps
1. Break it down
2. Build it up
3. Smooth it out
The break down stage consists of body brushing, and lots of massaging. So get ready to put those hands to work and in motion. For the build-up stage, it’s quite simple, eliminate all processed foods, caffeine and slow down on the booze. When it comes to smoothing cellulite, an exfoliate paired with a good body cream will do the trick. Two products we’d recommend are the Organic Olive and Green Tea Body Scrub by Shea Moisture and the Resist Retinol Skin- Smoothing Body Treatment of Paula’s Choice. Both products are inexpensive and blended with natural ingredients that will leave the skin supple and firm; totally needed for smoothing out cellulite. If you’re unfamiliar with retinol, it’s just another word for Vitamin A. When applied topically, over time it can increase the elasticity in the skin where cellulite has made its appearance.
So lets say you follow those 3 steps to reducing cellulite. What can you look forward to? A healthier body, a firmer skin surface and a radiant complexion; something everyone wants. Right?
