Did you know only 2% of women worldwide do not get cellulite? You will be pleased to know that we are all a part of the majority of ladies globally who suffer from the dreaded problem. Cellulite is nothing more than a layer of fat beneath the surface of the skin. The only reason it appears dimpled is because it pushed against the connective tissue giving it that unsightly appearance.
Lymphatic drainage massage, anti-cellulite massage or simply any sort of body massage once a week or even twice monthly is a great way to keep skin smooth. A full body massage will not remove cellulite permanently but it has a dramatic temporary effect on smoothing skin out. Perfect if you’re planning to hit the beach or go on an exotic getaway and want to flaunt your latest bikini purchase.
What stage of cellulite are you at? If you are standing or lying down and your skin is smooth, then you are at the initial stage. At this phase, it’s easy to get rid of it via healthy eating and increased physical activity in your daily life. Also invest in a massage mat and sleep on it for 10-20 minutes a day for 4 times a week to get rid of those nasty cellulite bumps. If your skin is not smooth whilst standing or lying down, then your cellulite may be a little more stubborn to handle. A Body Wrap can be perfect for this stage of cellulite as well as rubbing in anti-cellulite creams and indulging in hot baths and sauna to get that blood circulation up and running.
If cellulite is clearly visible both when you’re standing up or lying down and the dimples are very deep, you may be at the last stage of cellulite. Although it sounds dramatic, it’s nothing more than cellulite that plainly will not budge. It will require a lot of your time and effort and a combination of a tricks and tips to see effective results.
Use a holistic approach and opt for something like an Aromatherapy Massage or a Deep Tissue Massage at this stage. The essential oils used in Aromatherapy Massage will mix with the blood stream and reduce your stress levels, where as a Deep Tissue Massage will melt fat deposits under the layer of skin and get rid of any kinks of knots.
Slow metabolism, hormone changes, dehydration, total body fat, thickness and colour of your skin are all factors that play a vital role in the appearance and development of cellulite. If you religiously invest time and effort, cellulite is a problem that can be battled over time. For a quick fix however, slather on tanning creams, lotions and sprays on your stomach, thighs and arms when planning to bare skin as the deepness of the skin colour will help camouflage cellulite.
