Tried and Tested Cellulite Solutions
Hey ladies, we all have it in one way or another and with summer just around the corner many of us feel apprehensive about getting into our swimwear due to cellulite.
What is cellulite? Here’s the science!
Cellulite is fat beneath the skin that causes a dimpled effect due to it pushing against connective tissue. It is totally natural and really nothing to worry about! Around 90% of women will experience having cellulite no matter how slender they are but despite it being harmless it can still cause insecurities when it comes to getting your kit off.
What causes it?
Cellulite is caused by many things including a poor diet, high salt intake, dehydration, hormone changes and lack of physical activity. But how can you reduce the appearance of it?
1. Move more - Being more active is an obvious solution. Resistance moves such as squats, donkey kicks and lunges can help firm up your lower body and tighten everything up.
2. Sort out your diet - Eating less saturated fat is a good place to start. Fad diets won’t help so try and make healthier lifestyle choices such as lowering your alcohol intake and cooking from scratch with less oil.
3. Try firming products - While they are not scientifically proven to help they will make you feel more confident and can often help even the skin’s appearance. Our favourite picks are from the Spa Find Sculpted Silhouette range. The range contains three solutions to cellulite that all help to sculpt the body’s contours and improve firmness the natural way. Combining a powerful blend of Caffeine, Carnitine and Spirulina with Hyaluronic Acid, the treatments infuse the body with hydrating and reviving minerals.
4. Watch your salt intake - Too much salt in your diet can mean that your body will retain water which will in turn cause cellulite. Limit salt in your food and drink plenty of water to flush what you do take in right back out!
