Whether or not you’ve found ways to be more at ease about your cellulite, it doesn’t mean you have to give up trying to look your best. Fortunately, many of the things that help you reduce your cellulite also contribute to your overall health. But, instead of focusing on the ‘after-the-fact’ idea of improving cellulite’s dimpled-skin symptoms, you can take steps in your day-to-day routine that will help stop your cellulite from appearing or getting worse.
1. Get Up, Stand Up
If your job has you sitting at a desk for extended periods during the day, it could contribute to the build-up of fat cells that make cellulite look worse.
Sitting reduces your circulation, which reduces the amount of strengthening oxygen and nutrients that get to your skin, and the amount of toxins that are flushed away from your skin.
In addition to taking frequent breaks to stand, walk around and stretch, look for every opportunity you can to get up from your desk, including during phone conversations and whenever someone stops by for a chat.
2. Get Rid of the Junk
It’s not called junk food for nothing. The ‘junk’ in junk food includes chemicals, impurities, unhealthy fats, salt and sugar, all of which can make your cellulite look worse. By simply switching your snack habits to include healthier foods, you will be taking a big step to improving the strength and appearance of your skin.
Just like water washes away dirt and debris, so too can drinking more water help to flush away the toxins that make it more difficult for your body to metabolize fat cells. And just like rain makes a garden look healthier, drinking water helps strengthen your skin and makes it look smoother.You just want to look your best. Just a few new habits can help stop cellulite from happening in the first place, and wearing comfortable, cellulite-fighting shapewear will not only improve your figure as soon as you put it on, but it works to slim-down your thighs, hips and tummy for as long as you wear it.
