Cellulite Reduction Tips
Although there are many products and treatments on the market designed to help reduce the appearance of cellulite, just shy of a trip to the plastic surgeon's office, there's nothing better and longer lasting than lifestyle changes....and these changes won't cost anywhere near as much.
Here are 6 healthy lifestyle changes you can begin implementing today...
Eat right and take your daily vitamins - You do not have to be overweight to get cellulite and it is not unusual to see some girls who are quite slim with cellulite on the back of their legs. This is a sure sign that their lifestyle is out of balance or their nutrition is not good. So for starters, you should always eat fresh food and eliminate where possible any processed and packaged foods. Replacing fatty foods and foods that are high in sugar with food that is higher in protein would reduce your storage of fat. You should always be eating a certain amount of fresh fruit and vegetables each day. Supplementation with a good multivitamin and mineral tablet daily also improves your health and in doing so will help to reduce the build up a fat that is causing your cellulite.
Exercise and burn fat - Slimming and toning is the most important step to getting rid of cellulite. Eliminating excess fat and flushing your body with lots of water to remove toxins will help to reduce the appearance of cellulite. Exercise also helps to encourage circulation and lymph flow which will help with the removal of toxic buildup and cellular health. If you are already slim, then concentrate on toning and muscle strength, which will help burn away fatty deposits that even thin skinny people have.
Dry brushing and massage - These two practices help improve lymph flow and propel fluid in cellulite affected areas. You need to get the bad stuff mobilized and moving out of the body and as your body becomes congested. Massaging and dry brushing help to get your body systems working more effectively and get rid of the build-up. You can try home massagers, have your spouse be your personal masseur, and even regular visits to a massage parlor. Dry brushing is usually done in the morning before showering. Just spend 5-10 minutes using a soft bristled brush all over your body, using upward strokes towards the heart. Afterwards you can take a shower to wash off exfoliated skin...another benefit of dry brushing.
Get rid of toxins in the body - One theory suggests that cellulite is caused by excess toxins in the body. Having well hydrated cells washes away the toxins and keeps them from building up; so drink plenty of water. Some people have found improvement after wraps and other treatments designed to remove toxins from the skin. You should also avoid adding new toxins to your system; cut back on caffeine, additives, preservatives, artificial colorings, and unnecessary medications.

Balance your hormones - Cellulite is linked to hormone production. The woman's reproductive hormones and in particular estrogen are one of the reason why women get cellulite. This is also one of the reasons why you'll rarely see men with cellulite unless they are overly obese. It goes without saying then that any changes that are made to the woman's reproductive hormones will also affect the production of cellulite. If you have signs of a hormonal imbalance, see your doctor for an evaluation including blood or saliva testing.
Get regular - It is not uncommon for women who have cellulite issues to also have issues with irregular bowels. In general they seem to struggle with releasing waste matter the way they should be. Start eating a balanced, organic diet with lots of fiber. Green smoothies in particular are wonderful for regularity. Just add a couple handfuls of spinach or kale and a couple frozen bananas to a blender with a few cups of water and enjoy! Many natural living enthusiasts also swear by using Colema boards, which are basically fancy home enema systems. Also drink lots of water and perhaps do a juice fast one weekend a month to help regulate your bowels.
Of course, these changes are in addition to drinking a sufficient amount of water each day which will not only help you to maintain good health but will reduce the possibility of getting cellulite.
Try these techniques for a few months and marvel at the results. Nothing in a bottle can even come close.
