Cellulite Solutions: How to reduce the appearance of cellulite in five easy steps
Cellulite is something that many people will experience at some point in their life.
While some may experience cellulite from a young age, others don’t notice the dimples until much later in life.
As far as cellulite is concerned, no two people are the same. Whether cellulite forms at all, how much and where it appears on the body is dependent on many factors including lifestyle, age and the one we all love to hate…genetics!
Now it’s appropriate to point out here that at Biologi, we do love our dimples!
We wear our cellulite loud and proud and certainly don’t see it as a problem to solve. For many, though, we do understand that cellulite, while nothing to be ashamed of, can impact confidence. And we know this because our customer experience team receives many contacts from consumers asking how to get rid of cellulite.
What is cellulite?
To understand how to reduce cellulite, we need to work backwards and learn what causes it in the first place.
Essentially, cellulite is formed from little pouches of fat pushing through the muscle tissue to create a ripple pattern on the skin.
Cellulite is more common in women because the female skin is thinner making fat cells more noticeable. Men are also less likely to get cellulite because they have higher levels of testosterone which burns fat. While it’s less common in males, men are by no means exempt from cellulite making it a gender-neutral concern.
Cellulite commonly appears around the legs, thighs and buttocks because that’s primarily where the most body fat is held. Despite the correlation with fat cells, cellulite isn’t exclusive to those with a higher body fat percentage. Genetics and lifestyle are also key players in cellulite forming meaning that even the slimmest of people may be prone to cellulite.
While many products aimed at curing cellulite line the shelves, the proof of how well they work can be something of a grey area. If you’re living with cellulite and want to reduce dimples naturally, the following suggestions can reduce the appearance of cellulite without loading the skin with toxins.
Drink more water
A leading cause of cellulite is the build-up of toxins on the skin. Drinking more water (between two and three litres a day) and consuming liquids in herbal teas and smoothies will help flush toxins and hydrate skin to improve overall tone and lessen the appearance of cellulite.
Massaging cellulite-affected areas may improve lymphatic drainage and stretch the skin tissue. Pay particular attention to areas where fat is stored to help reduce the appearance of dimples on the skin.
Dry brushing can help stimulate the skin to promote circulation and aid lymphatic drainage. Regular brushing can also strengthen the connective tissue and break down the build-up of fat cells to reduce the appearance of cellulite.
If you’ve never used a dry brush before, start with shorter bursts to avoid damaging delicate cells before building up to dry brushing affected areas once or twice a week.
Focus on nutrition
Excess weight doesn’t automatically correlate to cellulite but the higher the body fat percentage, the more likely fat cells are to appear. A nutritious diet rich in whole foods will help reduce body fat and reduce the chance of cellulite forming.
Avoid sugars which are stored in fat cells and reduce salt intake to combat fluid retention which can enhance the appearance of dimples.
Biologi is powerfully pure skincare rich in high performing plant actives. As the world’s first (and so far, only) clean cosmeceuticals brand, Biologi serums are made from plant extracts in their purest and most natural form.
Bf Restore Face & Body Serum is extract of finger lime and a natural source of byangelicin. The flavanone contains anti-glycation activity that works to reverse the appearance of dimples and cellulite.
Bf Restore is also a potent source of plant-based vitamin C. When applied directly to the skin, the entirely natural nutrient can help build collagen and strengthen the skin cells making it more difficult for fat cells to push through to the skin’s surface.
Br Organic Rosehip oil is a natural source of vitamin A. Instead of applying retinol-based lotions laden with synthetics, Br Organic Rosehip Oil harnesses the power of vitamin A in its purest and most active form. Applying Br Oil to the skin helps reduce the free radicals that breakdown collagen to strengthen skin and reduce the appearance of dimples. Vitamin A applied regularly also smooths the skin to improve the texture and tone.
Br Organic Rosehip Oil is also a natural source of vitamin E which works to help flush the toxins and fat deposits from the body to reduce the appearance of cellulite.
To reduce the appearance of cellulite, apply Bf Restore Face & Body Serum to affected areas as often as required. Wait for the active nutrients to penetrate and follow with Br Organic Rosehip Oil. This combination is a powerhouse of natural active nutrients that work hard to strengthen skin, flush out toxins, hydrate skin and reduce the appearance of dimples.
