How Fewer Toxins Can Lead to Less CelluliteYou’ve heard it a million times, but few clichés are truer than “your body is an amazing thing”. Knowing that the harmful substances in food are not good for you, your body fights to keep toxins away from your vital organs. Instead, it will store excess toxins (those your liver and kidneys can’t get rid of immediately) in layers of fat until they can be expelled later. But that means more fat is needed to store the toxins and added fat can add to your cellulite.
How to Reduce Toxin Intake to Minimize CelluliteBy making small adjustments to your diet, you can reduce your toxin intake and, in turn, your cellulite.
1. Eat Fresh Vegetables
Fresh vegetables are alkaline-forming foods. Not only does that alkalinity not add to the toxins in your body, but it draws out the acidic toxins already there.
2. Drink Lots of Water
Just like it washes the dirt from your, water helps to flush your body of toxins. And the added moisture in your skin helps to reduce the orange-peel appearance of cellulite.
3. Reduce Salt
Salt is essential to life, but you only need about a teaspoon of it every day. Any more, and it upsets the moisture balance in your body, contributing to dehydration and the wrinkled appearance of your skin.
With the addition of alkaline-forming foods and more water, tissue massage helps to stimulate the lymphatic and blood circulation systems to help get rid of toxins, and the fat that goes with it.Unfortunately, cellulite is a reality for most people. But by continuing to take steps to reduce it, you can look and feel your best.
