Combat Cellulite With A Good Lifestyle And Nutrition
No one, presumably, is ever born with cellulite. It is not something that can be controlled even though it is a known fact that cellulite can never be cured permanently. All the same, watch your diet and lifestyle, and everything should be okay in spiteof your cellulite.
You should never undermine the role your diet plays in controlling your cellulite even though you may wonder as why a skin condition should in any way be affected by good or bad food. However, the basic answer to your apparent query lies in the fact that overindulgence in food is always the fundamental cause of accumulation of excess fat. This excess fat – in the form of overgrown fat cells – strikes the surface of the skin and appear as Cellulite dimpling, especially in women (because of the inherent proximity of their fat cells close to the surface of the skin).
In order to make your diet reasonably balanced it should consist more of fruits and fiber-rich/green vegetables. You must always avoid junk and spicy food, at all cost, in case you are keen to get rid of your cellulite.
Give Up Your Minor Vices
If you are a smoker, better think twice about it. Smoking is obviously bad for health, but it is especially bad for the skin in the context of cellulite. Same with alcohol – alcohol is a contributing factor for cellulite. These vices not only weaken the skin by constricting the blood vessels, but subsequently damage the underlying collagens thus leading to appearance of cellulite dimpling on the skin.
Some experts also forbid too much of tea or coffee for people with Cellulite conditions. Coffee, however, can be used as a supplementary cure (when you use coffee grounds or powder too) for massaging the dimpled skin associated to cellulite.
Avoid Improper Medication
If you are used to take medicines such as birth-control pills, diuretics, sleeping pills and dieting pills regularly, you are most likely to raise the estrogen level in your body, which is known to be a major factor in developing cellulite. This leads to retention of fluid and that hinders your body to cleanse itself of toxins and as such, making you prone to getting cellulite. Medication, in general, upsets the natural rhythm of the body as also its capabilities in getting rid of toxic matters.
Whether you know it or not, unusual stress and tension can cause your muscles and the fatty tissues to considerable pain and a kind of seizure. This can lead to blockage in the tissues and inhibit systematic cleansing and discharge of toxic matters. All these tend to aggravate your cellulite.
Keep Fit through Exercises
If you lead a sedentary life style and are not inclined to undertake regular physical exercise, you will be more susceptible to the menace of cellulite, in addition to other health hazards. If you sweat yourself out through a regular regimen of exercises – swimming, walking, jogging as well as anaerobic exercises – you will burn your excess fat and greatly improve your overall circulation and the lymphatic system. Apart from providing you with a general sense of wellbeing, these exercises will also tone up your muscles, unblock the affected tissues and throw the toxins out. In other words, a good regimen of exercise will keep the cellulite dimpling away from showing on your body.
Drink Enough Water
Drinking enough water (plain, pure drinking water – not diluted with any other beverage!) is extremely important to keep your whole physical system, including the skin, healthy. Water also facilitates flushing the toxins very effectively from your body. As such drinking sufficient water is believed to help in reduction of cellulite.
Always Bear In Mind…
You can do a lot to keep cellulite away- or if at all affected, can control it effectively simply by regulating your dietary habits as well as your lifestyle. You must always bear in mind that these two factors can make a big difference in your appearance – depending on whether you have been successful in keeping away that darned cellulite!
Cellulite can affect people of all ages and body types and can be notoriously difficult to get rid of. While there are certainly no miracle cures, using specially formulated creams and treatments along with a healthy diet and exercise plan can reduce the appearance of the dimpled skin affected by cellulite. Creams and lotions that contain stimulating ingredients such as caffeine are particularly beneficial as they help move toxins out the body while other natural ingredients are used to condition the skin, giving it a firmer, tighter appearance which further reduces the look of the affected area.
