90% of women are affected by cellulite at some point in their lives. Being slender does not make you exempt. Unfortunately, cellulite can run in the family, it’s one of those genes that can be passed down. It occurs when connective tissue is weakened by hormones, lack of exercise and muscle tone, excess fat, and poor circulation.
If you incorporate 5 things into your routine, you will see a vase improvement of your cellulite in just a few weeks.
DRINK AT LEAST 3 LITERS OF WATER A DAY! Drinking water first thing in the morning will also reduce your appetite. We suggest you drink this water at least a half-hour before eating, which will provide some time for the water to digest, and won’t dilute the stomach acids too much, which can impact how well enzymes in your stomach digest your food.
This is VERY important! Water flushes your system daily and drink it room temperature or slightly chilled! It will keep you regular and help pass the toxins that will be coming out of your body during this detox.
Proper hydration is absolutely essential to wellness and vitality, as well as proper function of every bodily process. Remember our bodies are made of 70% water. Chronic dehydration, however mild, pushes your internal environment towards one where disease conditions flourish.
If a person doesn’t drink enough water to balance the increased water needs, the kidneys produce more concentrated urine, which increases the risk of forming kidney stones.
DO NOT WAIT UNTIL you are thirsty to drink! Our thirst impulse lags behind the body’s needs, so you should not wait until you are really thirsty to reach for a glass of water because that means your body is already dehydrated.
The International Sports Medicine Institute recommends 1/2 to 2/3 ounce of water per pound of body weight per day, ingested periodically throughout the day.
Dry brushing is a centuries-old health practice that you may want to add to your daily routine. It’s an easy and effective natural beauty routine that as we grow older your body will thank you for! Cellulite is made up of trapped fat cells, by dry brushing you can help to release these trapped toxins and break them down, or at least reduce their appearance.
IcoOne Massage aids the lymphatic system. It is responsible for picking up practically all the body’s wastes as well as foreign objects such as viruses and bacteria, which it transports to the lymph nodes to be broken down by immune cells. The lymphatic system can get overwhelmed and backlogged, due to injury, illness, physical inactivity or tension, which can cause immune problems, brain fog, achiness, or swelling.
This is where the massage helps decongest the area and get the fluid moving again. The lymphatic system is located directly beneath the skin, so the pumping, circular movements are very light. Too much pressure actually closes the capillaries but it’s very effective at reducing inflammation and edema associated with injuries or surgery, auto-immune disorders, and allergies. IcoOne can helps the body heal from surgery, and aids in the body’s natural waste removal or detoxification.
You will need to start to exercise at least 2 to 3 times a week and possibly lose weight.
No getting around it, you will have to have some cardio in your life. My favorite cardio is walking. It works out every part of your body at the same time. Just a 20-minute brisk walk 5 days a week will do your body justice. If walking isn’t your thing, you can also:
Ladies, most of us are hit with cellulite on our backsides and thighs more than anywhere else. These quick exercises below are really thigh changing.
- Get on your hands and knees on the floor in an all-fours position.
- Kick each leg back behind you, concentrating on using your glutes and upper thighs.
- Lower each leg and repeat on the other side.
- Stand with your feet together.
- Lunge to one side at a time, squeezing both your inner- and outer-thigh muscles.
- Go back to center and repeat on the other side.
- Stand in front of a bench or a sturdy exercise box.
- Then step up on it, one foot at a time.
- Step back down in the same pattern.
- Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and make sure your toes are pointed forward.
- Lower your glutes as if you were sitting in a chair, making sure your knees don’t go over your toes.
- Squeeze back up to your starting position and then repeat.
This is a step beyond the regular squat with the added challenge of a jump at the end:
- Perform a regular squat.
- Instead of squeezing all the way back up to the starting position, make a small jump off your toes.
You don’t have to live with your cellulite another day. No better time to start getting rid of it than now.
