Bad diet, stress and smoking are part of the factors that influence the appearance of cellulite. It seems like the weight does not affect its appearance. So, skinny or fat, according to some surveys, 9 out of 10 women have cellulite. Even men have problem with cellulite.
Here is some advice:
Try to see what type of cellulite you are dealing with so that you know what to do
Fibroses cellulite is hard when touched. It is easily recognizable because it has a specific look like a orange peel which can be seen with eyes. This kind of cellulite is harder to treat because it is often connected to aging of the skin.
The fatty cellulite is very soft when touched. It is mostly caused by bad diet and a lack of physical activity. It cannot be seen like the previous one, but can be recognized by touching the skin. It is not painful to touch.
A diet full of antioxidants will enable an efficient fight with the free radicals which partially affect the appearance of cellulite. Flavonoids in the food rich with vitamin C are part of the antioxidants that help in improvement of the look of the skin. For example, fruits and vegetables with red or orange color and green tea are exceptional antioxidants that need to be used as often as possible in fighting cellulite.
Massages have a great effect in the battle with all kinds of cellulite, because they help in its dissolving. Such is for example the buttocks massage from the outside to the inside with a firm pressure. But, it is good to know that you need to avoid using anti-cellulite creams that are often recommended, and have contrary effects with this type of massage. Until today, no products have been discovered and are very efficient, with positive effects. Anyways, complete loss of cellulite cannot be done just by this. If combined with specific food and physical activities, they may be more efficient and have more positive effects. Still, according to new research, it is expected to confirm this hypothesis. Also, you need to know that these creams did not have a direct influence to cellulite, but just with the change of the specific skin look.
The healthy food helps a lot in fighting cellulite and the fight against the bad look of the skin itself. The food rich with salt, glycoses (sugars) and lipids (fats), but poor with fibers, increases the possibilities for cellulite appearance.
If you wish to improve the look of cellulite it is necessary to balance the diet. Too much salt, for example, takes part in keeping the water in the organism which is one of the responsible factors for appearance of cellulite. You should also get rid of the white refined sugar to provide more room for the good meats and the use of whole grains, fruits and vegetables.
Muscle exercises will help you in burning fats and with that decreasing the possibilities for appearance of cellulite.
Stand straight with your back against a wall and bend down the knees to form an angle of 90 degrees. You need to be in almost sitting position and to stay like that for 30 seconds and rise again. Repeat this exercise for at least three times. Then bend to one side with the legs next to each other. Lift one leg and keep it in parallel with the other one for a few seconds. Do this exercise with each leg for at least 10 times.
Initiate the venous circulation
Physical activity is the most efficient method for fighting cellulite. Besides, it helps in getting rid of fats, better circulation of the blood – improving the overall look of the skin. If you are within the group of people that have poor blood circulation, try to avoid tight clothes around the waist and the legs, as well as baths with a hot water. Pick shoos with low heels and if you are working while sitting, try to change the position as much as possible.
