With the bank holiday and promises of sunshine this weekend, thoughts turn to our summer body preparation… We should look after skin all year round but after winter it needs our special attention. Cool temperatures can dry our skin and thick clothes are a perfect hideout for cellulite on buttocks and thighs. How to improve the skin condition before the beachwear season? Here are three simple methods, which will help you get rid of cellulite and have attractive skin just before summer. Try them all yourself!
1. Dry Skin Brushing
Your buttocks and thighs need it desperately! If you are regular, you can see the difference just after one month of treatment! This anti-cellulite method is considered the fastest one. You can brush your skin before having a bath or a shower. Choose a brush with natural bristles and – for your comfort – a long handle. Do it at least three times per week. If it becomes your every-day ritual, you’ll see the positive effects soon.
Start the brushing from your feet and hands toward your heart area. Dry brushing helps exfoliate skin by removing dead cells and stimulates the lymphatic system by increasing the blood flow. It is also a simple way to reduce the cellulite. You will love the softness of your skin!
2. Body Scrubs
In addition to dry brushing, you can also use body scrub. This is one of these cosmetics you can easily prepare at home. There are lot of benefits of regular peeling and it’s one of the easiest ways to improve the skin appearance. The exfoliation of skin makes it look smoother, younger and more relaxed. The dead cells are eliminated and active substances from creams and masks easily penetrate deeper layers of skin.
How to prepare a simple body scrub? It’s easier than you think. You probably have all the ingredients at home: olive oil (or coconut oil, jojoba oil, almond oil, etc.), sugar, salt powdered cinnamon, cocoa, coffee, citrus zest, several drops of essential oils (lavender, rosemary, citrus aroma, etc.). Mix the ingredients you like the most in a little bowl until creamy. Be creative. In a few moments you will achieve great results!
3. Massage at Home
Massages, as well as dry skin brushing or body scrubs, are skin treatments that you can do at home. A regular massage helps disperse fat cells, which are concentrated in one place as unattractive bumps under the skin. You don’t need to spend money on expensive beauty salon treatments. Instead, you can purchase one of new massagers providing advanced technologies, which fight cellulite like professionals. You pay once and you can use it whenever and wherever you want.
There is a wide variety of models on the market. The most effective ones provide up to three modern technologies in one tool. Massagers combining ultrasound therapy, radiofrequency and LED, are considered to be the most effective. Don’t forget that special gels, lotions and creams used during massages with anti-cellulite devices are necessary.
You can also try highly concentrated shots to get firm, smooth and young skin. The active substances used in these cosmetics (for example purified sandalwood seeds extract) are generally products of plant origin.
It doesn’t matter what method you choose to fight cellulite, don’t forget to drink plenty of water, eat a lot of fruit and vegetables and exercise regularly!
