Surveys have shown that 4 out of 5 women suffer from cellulite at some stage in their lives. It’s extremely common, so if you suffer from the cursed orange peel effect on your skin then you are by no means alone. The majority of women continually battle cellulite and women are a lot more prone to it than men, which is all down to differences in skin composition.
Cellulite results from enlarged packets of body-fat which is deposited underneath the skin, pushing it up against the connective tissue, which in turn pushes up against the top layers of skin creating that visibly dimpled look on the surface.
Cellulite occurs due to hormonal and weight changes. Now there is evidence to suggest the condition also tends to run in families and there is a direct link is with a lack of exercise and poor diet.
So now we know how our derrieres are have become so dimly how do we whip them back into shape? VOYA suggest the following points to help battle cellulite the natural way.
HOW TO FIGHT CELLULITE THE NATURAL WAY
Cellulite is caused by a build of toxins, and one of the best ways to thoroughly detoxify is seaweed bathing. When seaweed is steamed the polymers in the seaweed act a carrier for minerals vitamins, proteins and polysaccharides.
These luxurious oils surround the body, which is acid by contrast, and through the process of osmosis the body is detoxified and minerals are replenished. These oils are naturally suspended in the water and as heat has opened the body’s pores, these oils are readily absorbed. For years seaweed baths have been used as a way of relaxing, relieving pain and in more modern times as a way to unwind and de-stress. This is largely due to the detoxifying effects of the seaweed and recuperative effects of its high mineral content.
Seaweed baths act as an amazing detoxification for the body. Quite simply it is a large poultice, quickly removing toxins, whilst transferring these amazing nutrients to the body. This is why seaweed is used as a treatment for cellulite as it has anti-ageing capabilities.
Don’t forget to drink plenty of water!
Treat yourself to a Lazy Days once a month! You and your derriere will feel better for it.
Following an anti-cellulite detoxifying seaweed bath remember you have to also work from the inside out. This means no more junk food, the party is officially over. Wholegrain foods, fibre and roughage will aid digestion and get rid of bad food from the inessential tract. Fruit, and soya rich foods help release water build up from skin cells. Plenty of water, fruit and vegetables will boost circulation and flush out toxins that may be hiding in fat tissues.
Choose herbal teas, over caffeine based drinks and avoid alcohol. VOYA’s teas are naturally low in carbohydrates, calories, free from caffeine and can help slimming as part of a calorie controlled diet. All our products are made with non GM ingredients and are gluten free.
This is key, inactivity especially for those that sit down all day, means cellulite is more likely to occur. Regular exercise will help burn calories, tone muscles and dramatically improve circulation, so the more aerobic and toning workouts, the better.
4. DRY SKIN BRUSHING
Daily dry skin brushing may help with skin circulation. You can use a long handily brush or a specific exfoliation brush like VOYA’s Exfoliating Body Brush, brushing upward from your feet, from the hands to the shoulders and from the abdomen towards the heart. Another tip is rinsing off your body using alternating temperate to help stimulate blood circulation.
Then dry your skin and use products with essential oils like almond and jojoba. We suggest using our luxury body oil after brushing.
