The holiday season and summer parade is just around the corner, and the body is not ready to appear in all its glory and is intimidated by intimidating looks in advance? Then we know that you are most worried about and why there is always a place reserved for an opaque pareo in your beach wardrobe.
Taking into account the long winter, which every year plays with us the same cruel joke and accelerates our appetite to brutal turns, adding to this zero physical activity and a sedentary lifestyle, it’s easy to guess your secret – under a hollow dress you hide cellulite! We advocate active struggle and offer to never give up.
Moreover, there is a weapon against cellulite, it remains only to learn how to use it.
According to statistics, 7 out of 10 women sooner or later find cellulitis. Worse yet, even owners of ideal forms are covered with orange peel. So the absence of excess weight is not a guarantee that you will never find it in yourself.
By the way, contrary to popular belief, among the representatives of the stronger sex cellulite is also a frequent phenomenon. It’s just that men are more fortunate, because their skin is 4 times thicker than ours, and under such armor the treacherous tubercles and ruts are safely hidden from view.
But there are encouraging facts. Despite the fact that everyone around us asserts that it is extremely difficult to remove cellulite, and someone will never succeed because of heredity or irreversible changes in metabolism, practice shows the opposite. Yes, anti-cellulite creams are really not capable of removing three extra centimeters from your hips for a week.
But they are able to visually smooth the appearance of cellulite.
Every running wonder elixir will contain at least one active ingredient. Your task is to choose the one that is right for you.
After all, the silhouette spoils not only cellulite, but also sagging skin. And those who still can boast of perfectly smooth surfaces, you need to take preventive measures. So how do you make the right choice?
The most reliable ingredients are those that can act directly on fat cells. The first place among them is caffeine.
It has a powerful anti-cellulite effect and the ability to melt subcutaneous fat. The higher the concentration of this substance in the cream, the better.
The same principle works with caffeine derivatives: theine, theophylline, forskolin and phloridzin. They occupy the second place in efficiency, if we talk about the fight against cellulite.
Essential oils – a separate story. They have proven themselves well, but we are not used to them yet.
And in vain. It is very convenient to use these volatile and aromatic substances, as you only need to add a few drops to massage oil or to regular body lotion. Essential oils are valued for the fact that they do not dissolve in water and arrive at their destination unchanged.
Having absorbed into the epidermis, they penetrate further into the deeper layers of the skin, and get adipose tissue. And there they are actively taken to work and begin to fight cellulite. It should be noted that not all components used in the cosmetic industry are capable of penetrating to such a depth.
True, choose essential oils skillfully.
- To stimulate blood circulation and the lymphatic system, try the essential oils of cedar, lemon, geranium, mandarin, naioli, rosemary and sandalwood.
- The essential oils of grapefruit, rosemary, sage and juniper will help achieve lymphatic drainage effect and detoxify.
- To facilitate the excretion of fats, use the essential oils of cedar, lemon, sage and grapefruit.
- The essential oils of cinnamon, orange, orange, white sandalwood, ylang-ylang, as well as essential oil from orange stones (bitter orange) can compact and tighten sagging skin.
Anti-cellulite products have a bad reputation precisely because many of us, without a second thought, applied them like a regular lotion with light movements for a couple of seconds. If you are focused on the result, we warn you immediately: your hands will get tired, because it will take a long time to cast spells on problem areas.
To activate the formula of any means for losing weight, it is important to apply it during the massage. Otherwise, not even the most expensive cream will help you.
Massage with simultaneous rubbing of anti-cellulite products should be done for 5-10 minutes, ideally twice a day. And the course will last at least three weeks.
At the same time, it is important to learn special techniques. If you gently and lovingly stroke the skin, the effect will not be.
Anti-cellulite massage is a true art that requires some knowledge and active pressure, but a motivated beginner can easily master the basics.
First, stroke the stomach with the palm clockwise, and then work through the problem area with your fingertips, actively pinching the skin: this technique tones the epidermal cells and increases blood circulation.
Work on your hips, both the inside and the outside, by stroking them with your palms from the bottom up, palpably pressing your hands on the skin. Then, moving upwards from the knees, in circular motions massage the hips with the pads of the fingers folded together.
At the end, work the entire thighs with light pinching movements.
This area should be massaged with a fist, each time decently pressing it into the skin, as if pulling the fat from the depths to the surface.
Rub the cream into the skin of the hands with the open palm in the direction from the elbow to the shoulder.
