Reducing the appearance of cellulite – and keeping it to a minimum – takes some dedication. Cellulite is stubborn, unsightly and affects women of all shapes and sizes. While there is no magic cure for this natural build-up of fat, there are several natural, non-invasive ways to fight it.
While diet and exercise affect deeper body fat, they fail to act on the underlying cause of cellulite in the superficial tissue of your skin. Even women who exercise regularly and follow a healthy diet may still have cellulite. And because excess salt contributes to water retention, the reduction of salt intake in your diet may help to reduce cellulite.
Endermologie®, one of the most unique and successful cellulite treatment options, is an excellent method of reducing the appearance of cellulite while bringing a radiant glow to the skin. But a healthy diet and exercise should be always be partnered with your Endermologie treatment program.
Crash or trendy diets are not the answer, though. While it’s possible you’ve read about them, thought about them or tried them, all they are is a quick fix that does little to nothing for you physically. Without regular exercise, your muscles become flaccid. Once you begin eating normally, your body will quickly return to its original shape or worse. This means you will still have or gain more unwanted cellulite.
The best way to hold cellulite to a minimum while keeping your body fit is usually a matter of common sense. Here are a few suggestions on how to help you feel your best while your Endermologie treatments help you look your best:
In this world full of magical sports drinks and super juices, people tend to forget that the best hydration comes from simply drinking 8 to 12 cups of water every day. Water flushes toxins from your body and improves blood flow.
Salt, sugar and processed foods enlarge the fat cells present in everyone’s bodies. While no one expects you to live on rabbit food, adding several servings of fresh fruit and vegetables to your daily diet will provide you with additional vitamins and nutrients.
Most people know the important benefits of exercising on a regular basis, but often have unrealistic expectations. Don’t get frustrated if you don’t see immediate results. Stick with it and you’ll have more energy, lose weight, tone your muscles and sleep better. Toned muscles help to smooth the skin.
If you smoke, give it a rest. It’s not doing your skin or that cellulite any favors. Smoking not only affects the texture and tone of your skin, it constricts blood vessels, which contributes to the appearance of cellulite.
Dedicating yourself to your Endermologie treatments is great, but maintaining the results means starting or sustaining a healthy lifestyle. Endermologie works best as a complement to a healthy lifestyle, not instead of one.
