Heard of ‘cottage cheese’ and ‘dimples’ that are commonly found on the hips, thighs, buttocks and back of arms? Ugh! That uneven appearance might come in the way of wearing a clingy swimsuit. Well considering the sedate lifestyle of today, cellulite is a lifestyle ailment that is plaguing women above 35 years. How does one go about reducing that orange-peel look on thighs that shows its effect on other parts of the body? Check out how.
Adopt Liquid Green: Shun your morning cup of milk tea for Green Tea or Dandelion Leaf Tea, forms of herbal tea that are known to reduce cellulite. Being a powerful antioxidant, Herbal Tea is very effective in preventing free radical damage thereby halting excess of body weight.
Chow down on Anti-Oxidants: Reduce unwanted dimpling by including antioxidant-rich foods such as veggies, citrus fruits, salmon fish, dark berries such as acacia, red chill, saffron that help flush out toxins and stress hormones. They also help increase the muscle tone under the skin, getting rid of the valleys under the skin for a stronger, smoother look.
Chomp on Healthy Fats: Gorging on fast food can be the biggest enemy to having lean and well-toned skin. Include healthy Omega -3 fats found in oily fish, flaxseed oil and nuts; low glycemic spread hummus, dark chocolate and apple cider vinegar. The best thing about them is that they not only help improve blood circulation, they also metabolise fat thereby keeping skin dimple-free.
Skin Brushing: Body brushing is a sure shot way to break down fatty deposits under the skin and reduce cellulite.
