6 Simple Steps To Minimize Cellulite
Cellulite is dimpling of the skin or orange peel effect, especially on a women’s hips and thighs. It’s inevitable most women will experience some form of cellulite but the good news is……You can take steps to make cellulite less noticeable. Here are 6 steps to minimize cellulite:
1. Eat a healthy diet
Replace saturated fats with healthy omega-3 fats(good fats) such as oily fish like salmon or mackerel, flaxseed and nuts. These help with blood circulation. Foods rich in vitamin C are also excellent cellulite-busters because they boost levels of collagen in the skin.
2. Drink water
Drink a minimum of 8 glasses of water a day. Drink your water! Drinking water helps to flush out toxins and waste. Not to mention, drinking water helps to keep skin hydrated and soft.
3. Wear Sunblock
UV rays breaks down collagen. Sun exposure is one of the greatest causes of collagen breaking down. Be sure that your sunblock offers broad-spectrum coverage
, which will protect you from both UVA and UVB rays. UVA rays cause cancer and premature aging and UVB are the tanning and burning rays.
4. Dry brush the body
Dry brush the body(with a long handled body brush) before you step into the shower each morning. This will stimulate lymphatic drainage. The light brushing motion against your skin and the direction in which you brush helps move lymph fluid into the lymph nodes so this waste can then be eliminated.
5. Use body scrub
The massaging motion boost circulation for a smoother looking skin. Also after, your skin will absorb nourishing moisturizers
even better. Mix coffee grounds with your favorite sugar of salt scrub and watch how much firmer you will feel. Who would have thought! Coffee increases circulation.
6. Exercise and walk
Exercise can help reduce the appearance of cellulite and improve your health, muscle tone, strength and body shape . Weight loss can reduce the appearance of cellulite. Having firmer muscles under your skin can help the skin to appear much smoother.
Try aerobic and muscle toning exercises.
