Most women will develop cellulite at some point in their lives – in fact, it is completely natural and normal to do so. With cellulite being so common, it is not surprising that it is also a widely experienced concern that numerous women look to treat and reduce the appearance of.
While the cause of cellulite has been attributed to a number of factors such as your lifestyle, diet, age, genetics and hormonal factors – there is no one magic cure to permanently remove it. There are however a number of different ways that you can reduce the appearance of cellulite and help improve your self-esteem and body-confidence.
Invest In A Balanced and Nutrient Dense Diet
One of the best ways to help minimise the appearance of cellulite, and overall improve your health and wellbeing is to consider a few easy diet swaps. Be sure to fill your diet with foods that are high in nutrients such as whole grains, beans, lean protein, fish, fruits and leafy greens. Another great tip is to keep an eye on your sodium intake, as excess salt can cause fat cells to swell and make them more visible. Try also replacing saturated fats with healthy omega-3 by swapping butter or margarine for avocado as a healthy and nutritious spread option, or incorporating more oily fish and nuts to your meals.
Arguably one of the most effective methods to reducing cellulite is to do more regular exercise. Why not try High Intensity Interval Training workouts such as thigh raises, high kicks, squats and leg lifts. All of these exercises target your lower body and engage your glutes, thighs and lower abdomen – and can all be done from the comfort of your own home – helping to firm and tone your muscles to give skin a tighter, smoother appearance.
Try Dry Body Brushing
Skin brushing is known as one of the best ways to help target cellulite as the circular movements help to stimulate the lymphatic system (the lymph sits just underneath the surface of your skin), increasing circulation and encouraging the elimination of toxins. Use the dry brush over your thighs, bottom, and other areas with cellulite for a few minutes a week to help break down the fatty deposits that caused the dimpled appearance on your skin.
