Cellulite. It’s a word we don’t like to hear—or think about for that matter.
Let’s face it; we all hate the idea of cellulite. There are more creams and potions and treatments out there than I care to count. So what do we know about cellulite and how do we get rid of it? Heather Hunt, esthetician at Solutions has the info you need.
Are you suffering with excess baggage, cellulite, dehydrated dull-looking skin, lack of tone and firmness? You are not alone! Most of us (no matter our size) suffer from some form of cellulite. Most of us are also at a loss when it comes to dealing with these issues also. There is hope! In my research, I have found that with a combination of internal and external care, these symptoms can be reduced.
One of the most important things to consider, is keeping your skin properly exfoliated and hydrated. Two ingredients to look for are alpha hydroxyl acids, which help exfoliate the skin and stimulate collagen production, and retinols, which increase skin cell turnover revealing healthier skin. Body lotions that contain these stimulants (we like Eminence Organic Cinnamon Paprika lotion) act to increase blood flow, which in turn revitalizes and firms the area. Moisturizing your skin is one of the easiest ways to improve the look of cellulite-laden areas.
Diet can also play a huge part in combatting cellulite. Back to moisture, drinking the recommended 8-10 glasses of water is imperative. Maintaining a diet full of fresh, not processed foods that are rich in vitamins and minerals can be beneficial. Vitamin A, B complex, C and E, omega 3s, biotine, kelp, flaxseed, gotu kola extract, and horse chesnut extract art just a few that have been shown to improve the overall health of skin and reduce cellulite. Most importantly, studies have shown that getting your body moving everyday is vital.
We do offer several treatments at Solutions that can aid in cellulite reduction.
