Gymnastics and anti-cellulite cosmetics

The whole complex should include: proper nutrition, massage, the use of special cosmetics, gymnastics, as well as rubbing, wraps and baths, which we will talk about later. Today, store shelves are literally littered with various anti-cellulite products.
These are lotions, gels, mousses, creams, etc. But is it worth spending money and time on them? Yes, it’s worth it.
But, these funds will help only when your cellulite has not yet started, and, in addition, when these funds are used not by themselves, but in combination with other methods of struggle.
All funds work according to the same scenario. They improve the metabolism in cells, thereby increasing the elasticity of the skin. They should not only be applied to the skin, but also rub in thoroughly, which, at the same time, provides massage. Apply anti-cellulite products from the bottom up.
Do not forget about the regular use of a variety of scrubs and peels for the body, as a result of the removal of dead skin particles, there is a better oxygenation of the skin, which in turn increases the tone of the skin.
When fighting cellulite, regular exercise is necessary. Only in this case all your efforts will not be in vain. Gymnastics should be done daily, devoting at least twenty minutes a day to this activity. You can choose the time yourself. Running, swimming, cycling and walking are also great help for cellulite.

Nutrition and massage in the fight against cellulite
Do not think that only women who are overweight are susceptible to cellulite. This is not at all the case. It has long been proven that cellulite can also appear in those who are clearly underweight. But this trouble can be fought. If you throw all your strength into the fight against cellulite, and fight it in a comprehensive manner, then you are guaranteed success.
Let’s talk about how to eat and what kind of massage you need to do to forget about this problem.
In order to get rid of cellulite, you must first completely revise your diet.
Avoid eating foods that contain various colors, flavors, artificial additives, including sweeteners. In addition, it is necessary to limit the consumption of the following products: sugar, salt, instant coffee, alcohol, dairy products, carbohydrates, various carbonated drinks, animal fats.
The diet of a person who
decides to defeat cellulite should mainly consist of vegetables and fruits, especially cabbage, green salad, greens.
It should be noted that fruit should be eaten separately from the main food.
The development of cellulite is prevented by cereals and grain bread. Seafood and fish are also healthy. And if you cannot deny yourself the use of poultry, then eat it at least without skin. Of all types of tea, it is better to choose green. It is very important to have plenty of fluids in your body, so drink up to two liters a day.
Massage helps to improve blood circulation. It can be done with your own hands, using various gels, creams and mousses, or you can use “improvised means”. The improvised means include electric massagers , special massage mittens, etc. It will not be superfluous to visit the massage therapist’s office, who will professionally perform anti-cellulite massage.
Rubbing, wrapping and bathing are important components of the anti-cellulite program
Rubbing, wrapping and bathing are also important components of the anti-cellulite program. Let’s talk in more detail about how to carry out these procedures. Baths are a common remedy for many ailments. Baths will also help with cellulite. In this case, use sea salt baths.
For a bath, you need three hundred and fifty grams of natural sea salt and water at a temperature of 37 degrees. The procedure should take no more than fifteen to twenty minutes. This bath will have a great effect on the condition of your skin, and, moreover, it will have a calming effect on your nerves.
In order to carry out rubbing, you need to purchase a special anti-cellulite brush.
It should be a long-handled brush with very stiff and short bristles. This procedure is effective both for the treatment of cellulite and for its prevention. This is explained by the fact that during the procedure, the circulation of lymphatic fluid and blood microcirculation improve.
Rubbing should be done with a dry brush, preferably after taking a bath. It should be noted that in order for the results to become visible, rubbing must be carried out daily for five to ten minutes. After completing the procedure, an anti-cellulite cream should be applied to the skin. It should also be noted that roughly the same result can be achieved by rubbing with a terry towel immediately after a bath.
Do not think that wraps can only be carried out in beauty parlors. It is quite possible at home as well. For the procedure, you need to purchase various aids, for example, almond or olive oil, mud, seaweed, blue clay. You will also need plastic wrap for wraps. In order for the procedure to be more effective, it is necessary to take a bath and peel the body before it. This will help the anti-cellulite ingredients to penetrate the skin better. After the bath and peeling, immediately start applying the product, wrapping the treated areas with plastic wrap.
After that, you need to put on something warm and lie under the covers for at least twenty minutes. At the end of the procedure, the product must be washed off with warm water, and then applied to the skin with a moisturizer. It should also be noted that before carrying out the procedure, you need to consult a doctor.
