To completely defeat cellulite is not an easy task, for a number of reasons (including genetic ones). But to make it less noticeable is within the power of everyone!
What is cellulite?
In simple words, cellulite is a feature of the formation of subcutaneous fat. In certain parts of the body, collagen tissues have the shape of honeycombs, fat cells fill this relief. The skin is pushed to the surface, forming tubercles. These bumps become the "orange peel" that so upsets many.
The main causes of cellulite:
- Feature of the architecture of female skin;
- hereditary predisposition;
- Condition of the connective tissue;
- Slow metabolism;
- Violation of microcirculation of blood and lymph;
- Hormonal disbalance;
- Sedentary lifestyle;
- Improper nutrition;
- lack of physical activity;
- Enlargement and compaction of connective tissue.
How to deal with cellulite?
First of all, you need to review your diet. Body composition and figure are 80% dependent on lifestyle. Therefore, eliminate junk food and limit your sugar intake. Make sure that the diet is balanced and contains all the necessary components: complex carbohydrates, polyunsaturated fats and proteins.
Complex carbohydrates are rich in cereals, bran, vegetables and fruits.
Look for healthy fats in seafood, fish, nuts, vegetable oils, avocados.
Dairy products, meat, fish and eggs are rich in protein.
Be sure to drink enough fluids per day. If you drink little, it will seriously affect the condition of the skin. Possibly, the water balance has little to do with cellulite, but water accelerates the lymph well and speeds up metabolic processes.
Try to be as stress-free as possible. The fact is that regular stress negatively affects all aspects of our lives. Stress triggers the active production of cortisol, a hormone that drives people to the refrigerator. No wonder there is such a thing as “stress eating”. You start eating more, and hardly healthy food. Weight increases, extra pounds are deposited in problem areas, cellulite becomes more and more pronounced. Therefore, try to minimize the amount of stress in your life. We understand that it is not as easy to do this as it is to say. But meditation will help you!
Try to get good sleep.Sleep is one of the important components of a healthy lifestyle. When a person sleeps, the body is restored, a number of important biological and chemical processes take place in it. The breakdown of fats is one of them. But, sleep should be full and of high quality. Fat cells are only broken down during the deep phase of sleep.
Move more.A sedentary lifestyle is the enemy of a beautiful figure. Therefore, if you sit at the computer all day, and in the evening lie in front of the TV and go only to the car, store or the nearest bus stop, this will not solve the cellulite problem. We understand that not everyone has the extra time to go to the gym, dance, yoga or any other activity (although it would be just great!). But try to move as much as possible in everyday life: go a few stops before the house and walk, take the stairs instead of the elevator, do simple exercises at home. You can, for example, buy fitness rubber bands - this is an excellent and inexpensive tool for pumping the buttocks.

Dry brushing is another effective method against orange peel. The procedure improves microcirculation and oxygen supply to tissues, gently exfoliates dead skin cells, cleanses the skin well and breaks down adipose tissue. As a result, the skin becomes soft, smooth and velvety, firmness and elasticity return to it, the microrelief is leveled, puffiness is eliminated, the effectiveness of the use of cosmetics is enhanced, and cellulite also becomes less noticeable.
Check out our dry massage brush without handle. It is made from 100% natural materials and fits comfortably in the hand. Massage exclusively on dry skin, moving from top to bottom. Massage of the buttocks and abdomen is carried out in a circular motion.
And, of course, we must not forget about skin care in the problem area! There are special cosmetic products that contain active ingredients that activate metabolism, blood circulation, lymphatic drainage and metabolic processes. Plus, skin color is evened out, firmness and elasticity increase. On smooth and soft skin, cellulite is less noticeable. Be sure to try our coffee anti-cellulite scrub with red pepper. It intensively fights orange peel, smoothes and tightens the skin. The anti-cellulite effect is made possible by the warming properties of red pepper, which also accelerates the blood.
After the scrub, we advise you to do a light massage with Sri Lanka aromatic body oil. It has an amazing aroma, in which notes of lemongrass, lime, bergamot, cinnamon and ylang-ylang are clearly audible. The oil has a pronounced tightening effect, well restores and softens the skin, breaks down fat deposits and fights stretch marks.
Remember that the fight against cellulite should be comprehensive. We hope that our advice (and cool music in headphones) has already motivated you to do great things :)
