CELLULITE is that plump dimpled fatty tissue that many of us have on our hips, stomach, butt and arms. We hate cellulite!
Here is a wonderful product that can bring you smoother, firmer and less dimpled skin. It may take a few months to see the difference but with consistent and daily use it is possible.
First, where does this look come from and how do you control it from forming or decrease the chances of it looking so…so bad.
This pesky condition occurs when large pockets of fat gets deposited under the skin and pushes through the tissue fibers causing this dimple effect.
Many believe it comes from being overweight but that is not so; even thin people have this problem with cellulite. This CELLULITE affects almost 90% of women and 10% of men.
Cellulite forms when estrogen decreases, as in menopause, prolonged sitting or inactivity. You can reduce the appearance or halt the progression with natural options, exercise or medical interventions.
Some natural options are a blend of herbs, minerals and special compounds. Our cellulite cream has blended ingredients that are specifically used to work synergistically together.
Here is our list:
Gotu Kola is an herb used for centuries in India, Africa and China for its medicinal purposes. It has a concentrated compound, called saponins, that gives this herb powerful healing power. It is helpful for:
- It speeds up wound healing.
- Reduces signs of aging in the skin. It improves the appearance of scars, wrinkles and dimpled skin.
- It boosts cognition by bringing more oxygen to the brain.
- It increases circulation by strengthening the walls of blood vessels. And increases the flow of blood.
- Acts as a detoxifier and a diuretic. This releases excess toxins, salt, water and even fat.
The herb, Horsetail, is high in silica, this helps with calcium function. Horsetail has been known and recommended by Galen, a Roman physician, for its kidney, bladder and arthritis problems.
It is the minerals in Horsetail, which help repair the bones, collagen and tissues of the body. It possesses a great capability to reduce excess water or edema in the body.
Caffeine has been researched; one study reported in Medical Science Sports Exercise, 1982; found that epididymal fat cell size reduces by 25% with caffeine intake.
Green tea antioxidants, catechins, increase metabolism. This stimulation then causes more fat burning, especially, when done with exercise.
Hyaluronic Acid is a clear lubricating substance found naturally in the body. It is found in the skin, joints and other tissues to retain collagen. Collagen is needed for moisture, flexibility and elasticity.
Almond oil softens and dislodges dirt and toxins from the skin. It prevents oxidative stress to the skin bringing more suppleness and helps slow down deterioration of the collagen layers of the skin.
Pink grapefruit essential oil can help detoxify the liver of toxins and waste. It activates the lymphatic system and helps control fluid retention.
Increasing Exercise along with all other options is very beneficial and can give you even better results.
There are cellulite FDA approved treatments at most spas and clinics. Unfortunately, even though it does work for a while, it requires a time commitment, since you do have to continue with occasional treatment. It can be very expensive.
Other recommendations are Dry Skin Brushing which helps move lymphatic system, increases circulation and exfoliates skin cells.
Coffee scrubs which temporarily reduces appearance of dimpled skin.
Use of Foam rollers as a form of myofascial muscle release; this releases the tightness in the connective tissues.
