Cellulite can seem inevitable – many women will develop the dimpled “cottage cheese” or “orange peel- like skin on their thighs, butts, hips, and arms as they age. Although cellulite is treatable in reducing its effects, there are ways to prevent cellulite from accumulating on your body.
You can live an anti-cellulite lifestyle. How? It’s simple! Below are the top lifestyle changes you can make now to prevent cellulite:
The Anti-Cellulite Diet
What you weigh and what you eat affects how cellulite looks and feels. If you watch what you eat, you can prevent cellulite. Make sure that you are eating the right amount for your body – not too much or too little. Eat lots of fresh fruits, vegetables, and protein.
Vitamins such as vitamin D, vitamin C, and herbs such as verbena, green tea, lemon, kola nut, fennel, algae, ivy, barley, strawberry, marjoram, and sweet clover nourish your skin and prevent cellulite. On this diet, your skin will be firm, smooth, and healthy. And, as a bonus, you’ll feel great.
Work-out to Prevent Cellulite
Regular exercise every week can keep the cellulite away. Not only does exercise burn calories and help you get better, more restful sleep, but exercise also tones the muscles under your skin where cellulite collects. Keeping your weight down and muscles toned is the trick to preventing cellulite and attaining smooth-looking skin.
Protecting Your Skin from Cellulite
Ultimately, the skin is where the cellulite is, and it’s up to you to protect it. Sunburns damage the collagen fibers that keep the skin taut and firm, this can lead to skin cancers, and premature ageing. Damaged collagen is more likely to let the fat cells beneath it poke through, creating the dimples and bumps of cellulite. Protecting your skin from the sun is a big way to prevent cellulite from accumulating.
Be sure to lather up on the SPF the next time you head outdoors!
Wrap-up to Prevent Cellulite
If your cellulite is extra stubborn, and you need some extra recourse, head to your local provider to try a FIT Bodywrap session.
FIT Bodywraps use far infrared therapy to deliver heat to a wrap around your body, providing both a gentle pressure and a gentle heat that helps the body detox and lose weight. Infrared body wraps also compress the skin, pushing the layers of the skin – including cellulite – smoothing the skin from the inside out. If your body was starting to develop cellulite, then a FIT Bodywrap should stop it and hold things back.
