How to Target Toxins to Reduce Cellulite Naturally

How to Target Toxins to Reduce Cellulite Naturally - TheBlackPurple
Our understanding of what is a ‘toxin’ is evolving. Technically speaking, a toxin is a naturally-produced poison, like snake venom. But that definition has been stretched to include manufactured chemicals that are ‘poisonous’, or harmful to us, including those found in the foods we eat. So your de-tox diet isn’t aimed at getting rid of things like snake venom, but the harmful substances in the foods you eat. Reducing the level of toxins in your body and how many you consume is generally considered an integral step in living a healthier lifestyle. But it can help you in other ways to, including a reduction in the appearance of cellulite.

How Fewer Toxins Can Lead to Less Cellulite

You’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 Cellulite

By 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.

4. Massage

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.
