Cellulite treatment information and resources.
Cellulite is a change of your skin surface, which shows skin dimpling, and it’s caused by the elimination of fat within tissue.
What Causes Cellulite?
There are many causes that lead to cellulite formation, some of which are hormones, diet, lifestyle and genetics. It occurs mainly because of swelling in the sub-dermal fat cells. This accumulation of fat makes the skin pucker and look lumpy. It is common in women during hormonal changes, such as puberty, pregnancy and menopause. A woman’s hormones are usually responsible for regulating the flow of blood, fat, connective tissue and lymphatic drainage. Cellulite occurs also because of excess toxins and waste products remaining in the body, which are not removed in the digestion process

We all hate cellulite and work hard at removing it or at least diminish it, but I came across a really cute picture which I wanted to share….how can you not smile at the poor citrus fruit what happens to our favourite citrus fruit in the ‘after’ photograph? We might never know………
While cellulite treatment creams don’t remove cellulite completely they can reduce the appearance dramatically.
Cellulite is basically fat, and the way to get rid of fat is through weight reduction and exercise (and not just weight reduction, notice how many ‘slim’ women have cellulite) you really need to do some specific toning of the area.
Anti-Cellulite creams can be extremely helpful in the fight against cellulite and they are so easy to apply that the choice of incorporating it into your beauty routine makes sense. They create firmer and smoother looking skin while helping tighten the skin’s elasticity and so reducing that orange peel look. You can get a free sample of a cellulite cream which we tried and found to be amazing. Click HERE to try it! It’s a quick fix and great for Summer!
Reducing the appearance of cellulite, temporarily, is actually pretty easy. The top 3 quick and dirty tips you should swear by if you are heading to the beach and need to quickly disguise your cellulite are:

Could Dry Body Brushing be the lazy girl’s way to eliminate toxins, reduce cellulite and smooth skin in one simple sweep?
Just to clarify ‘one simple sweep’ is actually many simple sweeps, The concept of eliminating toxins, reducing cellulite and smoothing your skin has a name: ‘Dry Body Brushing” and it’s an ancient technique which means brushing your body with a loofa or body brush in order to eliminate dead skin, promote circulation to problem areas (usually the bum, thigh and stomach) but best of all it eliminates toxins.
While we’ll leave the workout and nutrition advise to another day ‘dry skin brushing’ is the best way to detoxify your skin.
Noella Gabriel, skin expert from the UK beauty brand Elemis, a hardcore body-brusher: ‘Skin is the largest eliminative organ of the body, Dry body brushing for two minutes every morning before showering ensures the skin is working at its peak’ ‘Body brushing can eliminate one pound (nearly 500 grams) of toxins from the body a day’.
When your body is sluggish (due to too much champagnes or party pies) it leads to cellulite , toxins and lethargy, which is why daily dry body brushing is so beneficial. It works in reducing all these elements at once.
Step 1: Start at the soles of your feet. Stroke the brush in sweeping movements from your toes to the heel. Repeat the process several times. Move to the top of the foot and again begin at the toes and sweep the brush to the ankle.
Step 2: Continue to brush up the leg, from the ankle to the calf and shin, up to hamstring and quadriceps.
Step 3: After the legs start moving the brush over the top of the buttocks and hips. Always sweeping towards the heart. You can spend a bit more time here as this is where the cellulite tends to accumulate
Step 4: Once you hit the lower back, glide your brush from the spine out to the torso, all the way up to the shoulder blades. Repeat on the other side.
Step 5: Almost there. Abdominal area, always brush upwards but for this area you also start at the navel and brush in in small circular clockwise strokes, not leaving the skin. Now gradually increase the circular stokes until you reach the outer abdomen.
Step 6: For your arms start at the palm of your hand, stroking towards your heart then the top of your hand and continue up the arm. Finish by stroking over the armpit with light strokes.
Step 7: The final zone is the decolletage. When brushing this area use lighter strokes as it’s very sensitive.

This is my own recipe for the best cellulite fighting protein shake, it has been tried and tested and I think it’s now pretty perfect.
It packs a three punch because you can use it as a meal replacement for breakfast and lunch and by substituting just two meals a day and then having a normal dinner you are pretty much guaranteed to lose weight, which is the most important thing you can do to get rid of cellulite, combined of course with specific exercises to target the problem areas.
It’s full of antioxidants from the berries which together with the flax seed oil will help support the skin giving it a firm appearance.
Including protein in every meal is vital to maintain and keep muscles, which is very important in the fight against cellulite, the more muscle you have the more calories you burn even when you’re sitting still, plus the skin which covers muscle looks a lot better than skin which covers fat.
Combining a healthy diet and including specific exercises is the best anti cellulite treatment there is… one more thing.. having protein in every meal helps you to feel fuller between meals.

This cellulite cream recipe is similar to the caffeine wrap we posted about previously, however it is just a slight variation that makes it a cream rather than a wrap. Many expensive creams have caffeine in them as caffeine is widely known to temporarily and superficially make the appearance of cellulite diminish.
