It's time to take care of your body: in a month and a half you will just have time to put your skin in order, so that later you will not hesitate to undress on the beach.
Increasingly, experts recognize that the most effective way to combat cellulite is physical activity. For example, Len Kravitz, Ph.D. from the University of New Mexico (USA), insists that massage, weight loss and wraps have only a temporary visual effect, and in order to solve the problem radically, you need to train the muscle frame - trained muscles will not allow subcutaneous fat to show through into the dermis (which is why bumps form on the skin).
The most effective exercises are strength exercises: squats, leg presses, lunges. Aerobic exercise also works and is said to "create a satisfying calorie deficit." That is, they provide the process of burning fat. True, you need to do it regularly: three to five times a week for 20-60 minutes. Special attention - brisk walking, running, aerobics, dancing, cycling, swimming.
The task of anti-cellulite products is to improve the microcirculation of blood and lymph, normalize metabolism, help remove toxins from the cells of all layers of the skin and restore its elasticity. The most effective components of anti-cellulite products are seaweed, kaolin clay, ivy and horse chestnut extracts, sea salt, essential oils of lemon, oregano, grapefruit, juniper, vitamins A and E.
It is advisable to use anti-cellulite cosmetics in a course and according to the instructions, and not from case to case and on a whim - a systematic approach is important here. If you do body wraps, then two or three times a week for a month; if you use a cream, then apply it to the skin that has been previously scrubbed and warmed up by the massage.
Lymphatic drainage massage
Due to the destroyed collagen fibers and poor blood outflow, the skin in places where cellulite has appeared looks flabby. To improve her condition, an anti-cellulite massage is needed. It loosens subcutaneous fat, stimulates blood circulation and fluid outflow, strengthens blood vessels.
Naturally, for a quick visible result, it is better to consult a specialist. But if it is not possible, do the massage yourself: in 3 tbsp. tablespoons of coconut oil, add 10 drops of juniper oil, massage problem areas with this mixture, then wrap them with foil for 20-30 minutes. No need to rinse: the oils will be absorbed into the skin, moisturizing and nourishing it.
