In most cases, getting rid of cellulite is a lot harder than losing weight. Even people who have lost a lot of weight still tend to battle to budge the cellulite. Here I have researched some tips for getting rid of cellulite.
What Is Cellulite?
Why do over 90 percent of women have cellulite and what is it?
Cellulite is a gel-like substance which is made up of water, fat and waste products. This water, fat, and waste are trapped in lumpy and resistant pockets beneath the skin.
Unfortunately, these pockets are like sponges as they can absorb more water and bulge out even more so that you get that orange peel or cottage cheese look on your thighs and buttocks.
Women are more prone to cellulite than men, as they have more fatty tissue and more estrogen in their bodies than men.
Here are some great and inexpensive tips for getting rid of cellulite in the most effective way possible.
Watch What You Eat
This is the biggest and best tip I can give you. What you eat makes a huge difference to your outer appearance over time.
Try adding these foods to your diet as they will help you to speed up your metabolism and also flush out those toxins that much faster.
- Brown Rice
Also eat foods such as apples, fennel, pineapple, sage and grapefruit are really good diuretics. If possible try to go organic and avoid the excess pesticides.
Also, try and cut out these bad culprits from your diet as they all put more pressure on your body’s lymphatic system:
- Animal Fat
- Excess Alcohol
- Fried Foods
- Over processed foods
- Diet Soda’s
- Excess Salt and Sugar
Drink Lots Of Water
At least two liters a day of water should be taken in if possible.
Try to do at least 15 minutes of exercise a day or 35 minutes three times per week.
Regular Skin Brushing
Brush your skin daily before your bath or shower with a natural plant fiber brush. This will improve your circulation, brush off dead cells and encourage new cell growth.
It is also an easy and inexpensive method that seems to work quite well over time. When brushing your skin, start at your feet and then make sweeping movements up the legs making long, light brisk movements. All brushing movements must go towards the heart to encourage lymphatic and blood flow.
Take A Supplement
Glucosamine is a good supplement to take as it helps your body repair the connective tissue.
Maintain A Constant Weight
Yo yo, dieting is the worst thing for cellulite. Maintaining a constant weight is the best thing for cellulite.
If you follow the above advice, you will over time notice your cellulite disappearing as your body starts to flush out all the toxic waste that it is harboring just under the surface of your skin.
