Wow. That would be cool. Imagine just trying to live your life more at the moment, or being mindful, and watching your cellulite improve as you do.
Well, that’s not going to happen. There’s no single thing, like a caffeine scrub, brushing or applying creams - or positive thinking - that will reduce the appearance of your cellulite for much longer than how long it takes those treatments to wear off.
That’s because common cellulite treatments don’t actually do anything about the underlying causes of cellulite. Instead, they generally tighten your skin. Until they wear off.
Then it's back to orange peel skin for you.
The Best Way to Reduce Cellulite
Cellulite is caused by the accumulation of fat cells beneath your skin, which is attached to the underlying muscle tissue by fibrous bands. As more fat cells accumulate, they push against the underside of your skin.
Cellulite dimpling happens where the fibrous bands are attached to the underside of your skin. They pull your skin in, while the fat cells push your skin out.
The best way to reduce the appearance of cellulite is to minimize the fat cells beneath your skin. You can do this by lowering your weight through a healthier diet and more activity.
Back to Mindfulness & Your Cellulite
Mindfulness, which is being more mindful of everything around you and everything you feel. It includes simply paying more attention to your senses, living in the moment without worrying about the past and future, meditating and even focusing on your breathing.
The benefits of mindfulness, including lower stress, anxiety and depression; better sleep; reduced diabetes symptoms; and less hypertension, are where the connection to reduced cellulite is made.
Each of the areas of your body and mind that mindfulness helps to improve happens to also be areas that can contribute to weight gain, or at least make it more difficult to manage your weight.
So if you practice mindfulness, you’ll be taking steps to promote a reduction in the appearance of your cellulite.
