Cellulite is the presence of persistent, subcutaneous fat deposits that can cause skin to clump and create an uneven texture, typically present on women’s hips and thighs.

What causes Cellulite ?  As fat cells increase in size, they can push against each other and the outer skin layers. Strong, long connective cords of tissue pull downwards which can further result in uneven surfaces or visible dimpling, identified as cellulite. Cellulite is a very common, harmless skin condition that causes lumpy, dimpled fleshy areas on the thighs, hips, buttocks and abdomen.

How can we prevent Cellulite ?  Cellulite cannot be prevented but you can help to minimise the chances of it developing or becoming worse by burning fat with exercise and improving greater muscle tone in affected areas. This will help improve the skin’s tone and appearance over time, plus there are topical options to twin with exercise that can support tackling cellulite externally too.

OUTSIDE IN – Natural, topicals to target CelluliteIn addition to increasing the natural blood circulation and lymphatic drainage within affected skin (with moderate exercise and gentle exfoliation using natural organic loofah sponges and free from skin-nasties herbal shower gel and artisan soaps during bathing), an anti-cellulite wooden massager can be useful when used in conjunction with Really Good Cellulite Oil, especially after bathing.

Really Good Cellulite Oil is an expertly blended mixture of high-quality, organic oils and active botanicals, designed to help reduce the appearance of cellulite, boost circulation, tone, firm and promote smoother skin texture. A COSMOS Organic Approved product. Using Really Good Cellulite Oil, massage into affected areas with warm hands (in circular movements, always sweeping towards the heart) and then swop to using an anti-cellulite wooden massager for deeper tissue massage, lymphatic drainage and effleurage (morning and night for a minimum of 2 weeks) to really boost the circulation and water drainage within affected skin. Once improvements are seen, use daily for maintenance as needed after bathing (as warm, clean skin will be most receptive for the ingredients to work optimally).

In general, using a whipped body butter to not only moisturise and hydrate affected skin, also gives you a further opportunity to gently massage in naturally beneficial essential oils to enhance targeted cellulite efforts. Two highly popular, natural whipped body butters are St Clements (if you love fresh, Sicilian lemon oil and need an intense skin moisturiser) or Lavender with Rose Geranium (if you need a hydrating moisturiser with essential oils for that aromatherapy spa experience!). Both products are very popular.

For a lighter body lotion, Bringer of Peace Herbal Body Lotion naturally compliments its sister, Bringer of Peace Herbal Body Wash as a winning shower and moisturising duo.

INSIDE OUT – Natural supplements to help target cellulite by improving skin texture and firming cells.

CELLUFIRM complex is a unique blend of vitamins, minerals, botanicals and amino acids designed to help promote the natural breakdown and dispersion of cellulite and increase circulation within affected skin.

Cellufirm contains Capsaicin which helps to boost the removal of accumulated toxins from fatty tissues and Green Coffee bean for its diuretic properties, to help remove excess water retention from tissues. Yerba Mate contains a variety of potent antioxidant polyphenols such as flavonoids; Quercetin, Rutin and Phenolic acids. Yerba Mate is renowned for assisting weight management and contributing to the healthy metabolism of fats. Fennel has been shown to stimulate liver cell regeneration and also has beneficial anti-inflammatory properties. Green Tea contains four primary polyphenols which are referred to as catechins, that are powerful antioxidants, known to help support the body’s defence against damaging free radicals.

A key concern with increased cellulite, is the lack of effective blood circulation to affected fatty tissues. Regular detoxification of the body can also help to prevent too many sluggish fats and toxins building up in skin tissues. For best results it is recommended that this product be taken in combination with a healthy nutritious diet (rich in antioxidants, essential fatty acids, pre and probiotics), massage of tissues with cellulite oil and a suitable exercise regimen.
