Natural anti cellulite remedies and techniques which anyone can do at home to eliminate those nasty cellulite and stretch marks.
Cellulite is an ever more frequent aesthetic problem that affects women starting in teenage years. Pregnant women also face cellulite and stretch marks, caused by hormonal changes during pregnancy.
Factors contributing to cellulite development include inadequate nutrition by eating foods rich in saturated fat, refined sweets, synthetic additives, insufficient hydration, hormonal changes, stress, sedentary, circulatory and lymphatic drainage disorders, obesity, weight loss diets, excess alcohol, coffee, and cigarettes.
The first step is to give up the unhealthy eating habits.
First of all, you need to adopt a balanced, varied and moderate diet by eliminating fast food, processed foods, drinks made from synthetic compounds, and sausages.
You should eat low-fat meats, fish, dairy products, fresh vegetables and fruits (papaya, pineapple, grapes, berries), whole grains, oil fats, and oilseeds. Daily exercise and gymnastics are recommended 3-4 times a week (aerobic exercises, underwater gymnastics).
You should try the anti-cellulite massage.
There are also some procedures that can improve the appearance of the skin. The condition is to be performed regularly and accompanied by a healthy lifestyle.
The first procedure is massage, which can be done at home, using creams that contain natural extracts: ivy, rosemary, nettle, marigold, chamomile.
You should use cocoa and shea butter because they have visible effects. You must massage the affected areas, with circular, vigorous but not harsh movements, using your hands or with brushes or rollers, for 15-20 minutes.
Daily massage using a vacuum pump, for 15-30 minutes, provides satisfactory results.
You can also try anti-cellulite packs.
After applying the natural anti-cellulite cream, wrap a foil, and let it work for 30 minutes, after which take the so-called Scottish showers.
Scottish shower involves the alternation of warm and cold water streams during the shower session. The showers are recommended only for people who have no health problems.
If you suffer from a chronic condition, it is necessary to ask your doctor for advice as to whether or not you can use this type of showers.
Scottish showers aim to increase circulation, so they are most beneficial.
Lymphatic drainage reduces stress and cellulite.
You need to do 1-2 manual lymph drainage sessions.
Recent studies have shown that stimulation of the lymphatic system contributes to the reduction of cellulite after a series of treatments. Also, the technique is also beneficial in reducing stress. You must repeat the method at home, and, in addition to the drainage, you need to drink plenty of water, take walks and do not eat processed foods. In lymph drainage, it is not the intensity of massage that stimulates the lymph flow, but the position of the lymph nodes in the body.
