Cellulite

Wednesday, March 03, 2010

Hydrating the skin from the inside out is one key component to preventing or even reversing the signs of cellulite. A great start is to strengthen blood vessels, as well as support the collagen and elastin fibers in the skin. In addition to staying hydrated and drinking enough water, consider supplementing your diet with certain nutrients that are particularly effective in the fight against cellulite such as grape seed extract, glucosamine sulfate and gotu kola.

As ironic as it may sound, another tip to help combat cellulite is to ensure your diet includes an adequate amount of essential fatty acids, or EFAs. Not produced naturally by the body, EFAs must be obtained through the diet. Luckily, they are easy to consume-and tasty! Try cold-water fish such as salmon, trout, and tuna as well as ground flaxseeds, raw nuts, walnut oil, sesame oil, legumes and grape seed oil. EFAs not only build muscle, regulate immune and inflammatory responses, normalize blood pressure and improve brain function, but they also manufacture and repair cell membranes, attracting water back to cells and preventing it from weakening connective tissue.

Coco butter smoothes the skin gently. It will take longer, but over time by using twice a day it’s a better ingredient for a fair skin tone (which will cause less redness and irritation).

I think in so far as cellulite (ugh) is concerned, one must not forget regular toning exercises. You know the ones that tighten and lift.

Be sure to try out natural homemade facials. They are not only cheap and easy to prepare, but also enhances your skin tone . A good set of facial strokes gives a lift to your skin and makes it look healthier.

I love the tips about reducing cellulite. Even at a young age, girls with a little extra padding have to deal with it. I love cocoa butter and didn't know it would help with this. I guess I'll be smelling like chocolate a lot more often now that I know! Thanks!!
