Cellulite treatments that work for you during the fall
We remember about cellulite with a sort of sadness by the time spring has come and we are nearly desperate when summer is just around the corner. Those are natural feelings giving that you start to wear less and less clothes, you change that warm, not necessarily figure hugging clothes of winter with short skirts and pants and you start looking for a new bikini.
That's the time when an aggressive battle with the appearance of the orange peel begins. Most times we are defeated, because in just a few weeks you can not obliterate cellulite accumulated and accentuated throughout the cold season.
Therefore, if you really want to initiate a serious and effective fight against cellulite, you have to start early. And fall, even if you might think that hiding underneath pants and coats will be just enough, is an ideal season to declare war to uneven skin. Don't let the cottage cheese look ruin you good time by not taking care of it beforehand.
How to get rid of cellulite before summer
Here are some tricks that you can put into practice starting this fall for spring so you can boast about an enviable body:
1. Up your omega 3 intake to reduce cellulite
You have surely heard many times about the benefits of the omega 3 fatty acids. Besides the highly beneficial effects that they have to protect the heart, brain and skin, it appears that omega 3 fatty acids are essential even in our beauty regime. Cellulite is exacerbated by unhealthy fat consumption (those trans fats do you no good for health or appearance!) and increased consumption of simple carbohydrates (bread, pasta, white rice, sweets and white flour in general).
Therefore, it is necessary to replace harmful fats (refined oils, fats from cookies, cakes and sweets in general or margarine ) with healthy sources of omega 3 oils such as extra virgin olive, sesame oil, hempoil etc. Avocados, fish and seafood are also excellent sources of omega 3 fatty acids.
2. Dry brushing
Dry brushing the body, in addition to getting rid of dry skin and dead skin cells, stimulates the lymphatic circulation and helps eliminate toxins from the body. Use a natural bristle brush, not too rough with gentle massage to your body. The movements must be inverted, from the feet to the chest. Do not use circular motions, the proper movements are from starting up or down, towards the major lymph nodes of the body.
3. Stop using underwear that's too tight
Poor blood circulation in areas where cellulite usually makes its appearance can be caused by underwear that is just too tight. That makes pretty much sense. Therefore, take care to wear thongs and underwear that's loose enough so that you blood flow is not impeded.
4. Detox Baths
Cellulite is caused, among others, by the accumulation of toxins in the body. And detoxifying baths, that make use of natural substances known for their beneficial effects, help eliminate toxins. Fill the tub with warm water and add two cups of Epsom salts ( magnesium sulfate ), which you can easily find in pharmacies and health food stores. Sit for at least 10 minutes in the tub. You can add herbs such as sage, lavender or chamomile so that the bathing experience is even more pleasurable and relaxing.
5. Choose the stairs
Physical inactivity is a major cause of the appearance of cellulite, more to say, lack of exercise makes cellulite invade your thighs. And if you want to get rid of it, moving around and doing exercise are required. And if you say you don't have time to go to the gym, you can just make small everyday changes that can really make a difference – go up and down the stairs instead of taking the elevator, stand up when you use the public transportation, choose to walk to work or go on a bike.
