Cellulite is one skin problem women around the world dread! If you do the 'pinch test' and there are unwanted dimples and bulges on your legs, then yep you guessed it - you have cellulite. Cellulite can appear in almost any place; legs, thighs, hips, stomach and bottom.
Cellulite is caused by uneven distribution of fat deposits under the skin, and can be very difficult to remove once it has started.
Check out our great range of discount Cellulite Skin Care products here at Chemist Direct.
There are many remedies marketed for this condition but at Chemist Direct we believe that it is best to be very wary of any claims to cure this problem. Many problems can certainly help to reduce cellulite, but exercise and a healthy lifestyle need to also be maintained in order to combat cellulite. The following are some helpful and practical ideas for reducing cellulite.
Gentle massage the area either with your hands or with the bristles of a brush to stimulate blood flow in the area. Increased circulation is believed to be very effective in reducing cellulite. Try adding some complimentary aromatherapy oils, for example grapefruit extract oil and fennel. Try out the Manicare Cellulite Bristle Brush for a go! We have it on sale at the moment.
Weight Loss and Exercise
A healthy body is must to keep cellulite at bay! Your fat intake should only be around 25% of your daily food intake. You should be eating loads of fresh vegies and fruits (the green leafy's especially!). Whole grains, seeds, nuts, and lean meat are ok too. Many people find huge benefits in eating raw foods as regularly drinking raw juices. (Yes, get a blender!)
Proper exercise is essential - keep your body moving! We recommend reading Sandra Cabot's The Body Shaping Diet Book as a fabulous way to get started with a healthy lifestyle and weight management.
Some herbal formulas are said to help with cellulite reduction, by targetting a healthy Thyroid. You can try Sandra Cabot's Figure Control Thyroid Tablets and see for yourself. We have them at Chemist Direct for $21.95, which is 24% off the recommended reatil price!!
