Cellulite: Six essential tips!

Did you know that 9 in 10 women have cellulite? It’s actually a normal part of life, since women have more body fat than men.

The more fatty tissue there is, the greater the build-up of toxins in the body. Toxins block blood vessels, causing blood to flow less freely. This, in turn, hardens the tissue. The result is orange-peel skin.

So let’s stop feeling guilty and start working on solving the problem or preventing it!

  1. Your first question: Are you at a healthy weight? Being overweight or obese is the number 1 enemy when it comes to cellulite. You’ll want to keep an eye on your body mass index.
  2. Exercise on a regular basis: jogging, walking, cycling, swimming and toning exercises for the thighs, buttocks and abdomen.
  3. Watch what you eat: plenty of fruit and vegetables, limited fat, sugar and salt intake. And most importantly, drink lots of water!
  4. Avoid combining carbohydrates with fats especially at the evening meal. Instead of rice, pasta or bread, try serving a side dish of vegetables.
  5. To eliminate stored fat, give yourself regular massages using the “palpate-roll” technique on affected areas. It’s a great way to stimulate circulation.
  6. Use anti-cellulite products every day, ideally on a regular basis throughout the year.

How do you choose the right product?  In the list of active ingredients, look for caffeine, ivy and/or xanthoxyline. And to get the results you want, remember to always exfoliate the skin before each application.
