Orange peel. Bumps. Dimples. Lumpy bits. Whatever you want to call it, cellulite is something that 90% of women suffer from. Yes, 90%!!!
With Summer right around the corner, there is no need to start shopping for a sarong yet. The most important takeaway from this blog is that cellulite is very solvable.
Feeling healthy and energised is all about feeling confident in your body. Confident in how it feels. Confident in how it looks. There’s no doubt about it cellulite is one of those things that hugely affects our confidence as women.
Millions are spent each year on magic potions, creams, products, and invasive cosmetic procedures that promise to get rid of unwanted cellulite. Not only do they cost a lot but they are often highly toxic.
I’m here to tell you that banishing cellulite boils down to 3 key areas:
- Detox the body to get rid of existing toxins
- Reduce more toxic load going into the body
- Reduce inflammation
In this 2 part blog series I want to give you my best practices for smoothing away cellulite such as foods to consume, foods to avoid, proper hydration, certain supplements, and even fun things to do such as detox baths, skincare products to use, dry brushing and body scrubs. Plus of course, there’s the B-Fit 21 Day Plan.
In part 1 I’m going to cover the basics on cellulite, and in part 2, we get to the remedies. Let’s jump straight in …
What Is Cellulite?
It’s fat beneath the skin that appears bumpy because it pushes against connective tissue, causing the skin above to pucker. It tends to appear mostly in the arms, legs, and stomach area.
It’s not harmful but let’s be honest none of us like the look of it and want to minimise its appearance and get rid of it period.
As many of you know, it tends to be more common in women than men. There also tends to be this notion that just overweight people get it but that’s not the case, thin people get it too. Albeit loosing weight can help its appearance.
- Lack of exercise
- Excessive body fat
- Faddy diets
- Poor diet
- Sluggish metabolism
- Hormone changes
- Family genetics
Cellulite tends to be less noticeable on darker skin. If you have light skin applying a self-tan will help the dimples appear softer and less noticeable.
