Any woman will agree that cellulite makes the skin of the body unattractive, and along with excess weight, distorts the contours of the body (especially the legs and buttocks).
This is extremely unpleasant on the beach, in the sauna, pool and in other situations when you want to draw a figure. From this article you will learn how to deal with cellulite – in the salon or at home..
Cellulite deposits occur in the hips, buttocks, legs, abdomen, sides, even arms. Although they arise from impaired lymph flow and cellular metabolism, they themselves do not harm health, which means they are a cosmetic defect.
But if you start intensive anti-cellulite therapy, it will not only give cosmetic results: the general condition of the body and metabolism will improve, immunity will increase, vigor and good mood will appear.
An integrated approach – the key to success in the fight against cellulite
The cellulite layer does not appear on the body in one night, and in order to get rid of this problem forever, you will have to work hard. Where to start and how to remove cellulite on the legs and other parts of the body, if before that you did not pay any attention to it?
First step – start the process of updating the skin of the body. The main stimulant of this process is a shower with a body scrub and care for problem areas, daily for 3-4 months.
The first results will be noticeable almost immediately: the skin of the legs and other areas will become soft, warm to the touch (blood supply to the capillaries will improve), after several procedures – elastic, toned, silky. And over time, the unevenness of the fat layer will go away.
The next step – add to daily grinding sessions of massage (or self-massage, if you decide to save on a salon), lasting 30-40 minutes, using anti-cellulite oils.
These two methods will give excellent results in the first 10 days, and cellulite will decrease before our eyes..
We pay special attention to the fact that at the same time the diet should be followed:
- excludes: canned food, smoked meats, marinades, pork, offal, salty snacks (crackers, chips, crackers), alcohol, smoking, sweet soda;
- minimum quantity: pasta, bread, potatoes, onions, garlic, cheese, nuts, rich broths, fatty gravy, pastries and cakes, strong tea, coffee;
- basis of the diet: fresh and stewed vegetables in oil, cereals, lean meat, fresh fish (baked or stewed), low-fat cottage cheese, kefir, fruits, salad and spicy greens, natural spices, mineral water without gas.
Then you should complicate the program and add physical activity to the muscles of the legs and other problem areas, as well as warming (or cold) wraps. Below are the basic exercises and homemade cellulite body wrap recipe..
You can fight cellulite intensively with courses (3-12 weeks), alternating them with periods of supporting training and procedures – 1-2 times a week.
How to deal with cellulite at home
The anti-cellulite complex, offered in beauty salons and massage rooms, is burdensomely expensive. An alternative can be a home course conducted by one’s own efforts.
You will need the following anti-cellulite kit:
two or three types of massagers: a shower brush, a plastic or wooden massager with “fingers”, a pair of silicone massage jars;
essential and fatty vegetable oils;
coffee or salt scrub (can be prepared at home);
means for wrapping (purchased or prepared independently – read below);
milk or body oil (after wraps);
suitable clothing for thermal wraps (knitted leggings or shorts).
The approximate procedure is as follows:
- physical exercises (muscles of the legs, buttocks, abdomen should be especially actively involved);
- shower with scrub; you can also visit the sauna once a week;
- self-massage with oil against cellulite;
- wraps (every two days, after a shower with a scrub);
- do not forget about the diet.
How to do anti-cellulite massage yourself
The main conditions for the effectiveness of massage against cellulite are duration (30-40 minutes), regularity (every day for at least 10-15 days, without a break), intensity (massage should be deep, which can be painful at first).
Remember the most important rule: this type of massage is performed along the lymph flow (from the knees to the pelvis, from the elbows to the shoulders).
This direction of movement provides the best outflow of lymph, getting rid of swelling, improves the movement of lymph throughout the body, stimulating the immune and metabolic processes..
It is better to start with a massage of the body (for example, the abdomen and sides), then the buttocks and, finally, the problem areas of the legs – from larger to smaller areas to stimulate lymph outflow.
Massage is best done in several types: manual, canned, using a massager – their effect is mutually enhanced. Those who are interested in how to remove cellulite on the pope should certainly be familiar with numerous hand massagers – with “fingers”, three balls on the rods and electric massagers.
However, remember that there are contraindications to can massage – varicose veins, fragility of capillaries, dermatitis. Before removing cellulite from your legs with an intensive massage, consider whether any acute or chronic illnesses prevent this.
It is good to combine a massage session and other anti-cellulite techniques with drinking cleansing tea. It helps to quickly remove toxins and excess fluid from the body. But you should not drink these teas constantly to prevent dehydration.
Wraps: fight cellulite at the cellular level
Wrapping components can be found in pharmacies, cosmetic stores, and even in the kitchen, using natural products as a source of fat-burning substances..
Purchased wraps are warming (composed of red pepper and other irritating components) and cold (the main component is menthol). The alternation of these opposing procedures strengthens blood vessels and tones the whole body.
A home remedy can be made on the basis of ground coffee, clay (blue or black), lemon juice, natural honey and essential oils.
Honey Wrap Recipe
In 100 g of honey add 1-2 drops of essential oils of your choice: grapefruit, lemon, lavender, rosemary, juniper, pine, geranium, oregano, cypress, bergamot, cinnamon. Combine three to four essential oils well.
Enriched with honey in this way, apply on problem areas of the legs, abdomen, buttocks, wrap with cling film for 30-60 minutes.
A slight tingling sensation is normal, but a strong burning sensation means that you need to stop the procedure and wash the mixture off the body.
Before using honey or essential oils, make sure that you are not allergic to these substances by applying a small amount to the inside of the elbow and waiting 36 hours.
After wraps, you need to apply milk or cosmetic oil (grape or almond) to the skin of the legs and other problem areas. But you can’t take sunbathing, go to the pool or sauna immediately after wraps.
Performing all these simple actions, you will soon be able to get rid of the orange peel on your legs!
