3 Simple Tricks To Get Rid of Cellulite
A woman’s body is often genetically prone to the development of cellulite. Exercise, alone, does little to alleviate these unsightly, lumpy deposits of fat beneath the skin. It also requires continuous dedication to maintain results!
However, there are a few ways to reduce the appearance of cellulite, which do not involve strenuous workouts, expensive creams, or invasive liposuction.
Here are 3 tips to get rid of cellulite that actually work!
Tip #1: Improve Circulation
Few women realize that cellulite is directly related to blood circulation.
When cellulite is deposited as small fat pockets underneath the skin, those areas no longer receive proper blood flow. This allows toxins to build.
To improve your circulation, get moving! This doesn’t have to mean strenuous exercise. Thirty minutes of walking three times a week will get that heart pumping.
Deep breathing exercises are also beneficial for improving blood flow.
Lastly, massage or rub areas on your body that are prone to cellulite for about fifteen minutes in order increase the flow of blood to that area. (Hmmm, perhaps a good reason to treat yourself to a professional massage??)
Tip #2: Proper Nutrition
Knowing which foods to eat and which foods to avoid is key for reducing cellulite.
(You didn’t actually think you could get away with eating whatever you want, did you?)
Nutrition plays a role in how our blood circulates throughout the body.
Certain foods can act to thicken the blood, thereby reducing circulation. Other foods naturally thin the blood, thereby improving circulation.
An important nutrient to include in your diet to help fight cellulite is Omega-3 fatty acids, which can be found in flax seeds and fish.
Blood-thinning spices include cayenne pepper, ginger, and garlic.
Foods that contain L-Arginine, like nuts, oatmeal, green vegetables, and dairy products, also help improve circulation.
Tip #3: Reduce Fluid Retention
Chronic fluid retention is another factor that contributes to the development of cellulite.
Avoid trans fats, refined sugar, and high sodium foods in order to reduce fluid retention.
Eating foods rich in antioxidants, flavonoids, and phytonutrients will aid in reducing fluid retention.
