WAR AGAINST CELLULITE- part 1

Hey Girls,

Today I wanted to write about cellulite. I bet many of you know how hard it is to get rid of. Approximately 85% of the female population (and certain amount of men) suffer from cellulite. At least I’m not alone in the war!!! The appearance of cellulite, which often affects, buttocks and thigh area, can be very embarrassing and there is no doubt that the ‘dimpled’ look of the skin is undesirable. I mean how many of you looked at the magazine covers and wonder why I don’t look like her. Yes, we all know that every picture is improved in photoshop, but somewhere underneath you dream about a nicer body. Call me crazy, but many girls have some sort of complex about their appearance. I can say I’m one of you. I’m trying to change, but I find it hard to be really, really healthy. I’m 5,8 (1,77cm) and I weigh 66 kg (10,4 stone), apparently this is the perfect weight, I happen to have cellulite on my thighs. The most annoying thing is that neither my Mum or my Sister has it, so why me? I decided that there’s no point moaning about it, I have to fight against it!




Here are 7 tips to naturally reduce cellulite, by Casey McCluske:


1. Eat a clean, alkaline, unprocessed diet  

In order to remove the toxins from your body, you must first draw them out from where they have accumulated in your cells, tissues and organs.

The way to do this is to consume alkaline forming foods (meaning they leave an alkaline ash in the body). All fresh fruits and vegetables are alkaline and should make up the largest part of your diet.

The key is to gradually increase your fresh produce consumption (mostly vegetables) so that you don’t magnetize out more toxicity than the body can remove. Otherwise the toxins will just re-circulate and then re-settle. If you want to flood your body with alkalinity and minimize cellulite (and ageing and other symptoms) get into fresh vegetable juicing. 

2. Hydrate and flush 

You need to drink enough pure, clean water and organic hydration from fresh fruits and vegetables to keep toxins flushing through you. Water is essential to life and it is also essential to reducing and preventing further cellulite. If you don’t like your water straight up, some lemon juice or lemon slices. 

3. Swap your salt 

Seriously, it can’t get any easier than this: swap your refined salt (table salt) for Celtic sea salt or Himalayan crystal salt.

Refined salt is extremely acidic and leaches minerals from your body. It is also highly dehydrating (hello cellulite!) and so refined that your body will need to use its vital life force to try to assimilate this dead salt. Refined salt only adds to the accumulation of toxicity in your body. 

4. True detoxification – getting the waste out 

When you put clean, alkaline foods into the body as per the first three tips, the alkalinity of those foods starts to attract out old acidic waste matter deep within your body. This is brilliant and exactly what you want as once this stuff has come out your body will have a chance of showing less of the toxicity through your cellulite.The best way of doing this is to get into some regular colon cleansing through professional colonics or at home enemas. 

5. Skin brushing and massage 

Skin brushing can specifically target areas of cellulite. Using a skin brush in small circular movements over your thighs, butt and other areas with cellulite for a few minutes a few times per week will help to break down the fatty deposits that cause the dimpled appearance. It is best to start with just a minute of skin brushing and then work your way up to a few minutes at a time. This will help your skin adjust and prevent sensitivity. 

6. Moving and sweating 

When you do sweaty exercise you are not only helping stress relief and giving yourself an endorphin rush, you are also expelling toxins through your skin.  

7. Limit the use of skin thinning creams 

Instead nourish your skin with moisturising totally natural oils and creams such as coconut oil, olive oil or a gorgeous organic moisturizer.

One thing I thing is a bit odd- regular colon cleansing.... i think I can skip that.

I am a fan of one product: Biotherm Cellulite Laser High Precision Anti- Cellulite gel. It is designed to feel skin firmer. According to Biotherm research: 75% of women agree that skin feels firmer, 74% of women agree that skin feels smoother, 85% of women agree skin texture is improved.
 



In Part 2 I will tell you what home made body mask I use for cellulite and what kind of exercises I use.

Hope this post will help you girls to win in the war against cellulite.
Good luck
Ewelina
