HOW TO GET RID OF CELLULITE

It is reported that 80-90% of women have “orange peel” skin known as cellulite. It can appear in women of all shapes and sizes, even Victoria Secret Models! There is no need to feel alone! Cellulite is a result of pockets of fat that has been squeezed between bands of tissues called septae. These fat cells cluster together, poof up with liquid and move towards the surface of the skin causing lumps and bumps. The more fat that you have the more likely you are to have significant dimpling. However, even thin women can have some fat between their muscle and skin, and that’s all it takes for cellulite to appear - after all it is completely normal.

How can you get rid of Cellulite?
The ugly truth is that unfortunately because cellulite is a structural problem and possibly caused by genetics there is not a way to cure it! Despite there being no need to feel hatred towards your cellulite - which has now become extremely common thanks to the media photoshopping, airbrushed models - if you want to reduce it's appearance, there are ways to reduce your cellulite! You can make it look significantly better and much less noticeable through firming and toning the muscles. This will help to tighten the skin and reduce it's appearance - every woman's goal! Cellulite normally appears around the thigh and buttocks area and targeted resistance exercises such as lunges and squats will help to make your muscles more defined, and your skin smoother.

Diet
As we age, collagen levels decline which causes skin health to deteriorate. The skin slackens and becomes weaker which makes the bulging fat cells seem more visible. We can strengthen the skin to help fight cellulite by including the following in your diet:

Vitamin C: Helps to strengthen the skin’s connective tissue and therefore reduce the appearance of cellulite. It is also a precursor for collagen.
- Citrus Fruit, Broccoli, Bell Peppers

• Protein: Helps to strengthen the collagen fibres and decrease cellulite.
- Chicken, Lean Red Meat, White Fish, Beans, Legumes, Slender Blend

Omega 3: Stimulates collagen production and reduces inflammation, which will help with the reduction of cellulite
- Oily fish (salmon, mackerel), Flaxseeds, Chia Seeds - try our Omega 3 Capsules

CLA: Science shows eating fat could help with cellulite. Yes, really. But not just any fat - a special kind of fatty acid known as CLA(conjugated linoleic acid). CLA has the potential to increase the amount of body fat burnt during diet and exercise - and to increase the amount of lean muscle mass (which will help disguise cellulite) in the system.

Exercise The key to reducing cellulite is losing body fat, firming the muscle underneath the skin, following a healthy diet, and boosting circulation and blood flow. You can enhance your circulation by getting massages and doing regular exercise that involves strength training and cardio. Interval training - which involves varying the intensity of your activity - is a great way to burn body fat. Strength training helps to firm the muscle underneath the cellulite which help smooth the skin's appearance. Try to focus on strength-training moves such as squats and lunges that build up the hamstrings, quads, buttocks and hips - as this is where cellulite appears the most. Aim for training the lower body at least two times a week, increasing the weight over time to challenge your muscles. Learn To Love Your Cellulite No matter who we are, we've all done it at some point: stared at our reflection in the mirror and focused on our cellulite or stretch marks. Sometimes, we tend to forget that everyone has so-called flaws like these, including celebrities and models. Celebrities sometimes hide their cellulite, as we all do, but others have accepted and embraced it. We should learn to take note of celebrities like Demi Lovato and PW's own Karina Irby (@karinairby) who embrace their cellulite and bring about a healthy discussion about body positivity. Try not to think about these tiny “flaws” on your body. In fact, try not to even think of them as flaws at all, they are just part of you. Own your body with pride, every single part of it. Because as long you take care of it, and know that it’s fit, healthy and happy then a little dimple should not change that.
