Cellulite is simply fatty deposits stored under the skin therefore giving the skin a ‘dimpled’ appearance. Statistics show that the dreaded ‘orange peel’ affects more than 80% of women over the age of 20.
Factors such as age, lifestyle, diet and genetics can contribute to the amount of cellulite we have. Even something as simple as tight underwear is said to cause cellulite to form – as if our Bridget Jones knickers weren’t trouble enough.
The good news is – there are things we can do to reduce the appearance of cellulite, (without the budget of a Hollywood A-lister) the key is to remove the accumulation of toxins from your body.
Hydration is essential! Drinking enough water and hydration from fresh fruit and vegetables will help flush toxins through your body. Eating a healthy organic diet and avoiding or limiting toxins such as alcohol, tobacco and coffee will prevent any further build up of toxins. A good work out routine will also help to tone and bring blood flow to the affected areas.
Regular massage with Organic Body Care products can help to improve the appearance of cellulite by increasing circulation and stimulating the lymphatic system in the affected area.
Before bathing or showering, use a Body Brush on dry skin, this can be effective in reducing cellulite and improving skin tone. Long sweeping movements should be used in the direction of the heart, this helps move lymph fluid into the lymph nodes and aids in digestions as well as leaving you with a silky smooth complexion
Our award winning organic Vanilla Sugar Body Scrub will boost circulation as well as remove dead skin cells and improve skin tone. Massage the scrub into your skin using circular movements, especially on cellulite prone areas to help break down the fatty deposits. Rinse away with warm water, then turn the shower to cold for 1 minute then back to warm again.
For a revitalising morning bath or shower, try our May Chang, Lime & Blackpepper Bath Soak and Body Wash, with its diuretic and detoxifying properties, which is also effective on cellulite, and a great way to boost your circulation.
Regularly moisturising the areas will leave the skin looking smooth, supple and hydrated therefore making the overall appearance of cellulite look better. When applying moisturiser work from the ankles up to encourage the flow of toxins to the drainage points. We recommend our Elderflower & Orange Blossom Body Cream
