Dorra Slim how to get rid of cellulite large size

For many ladies, second to jiggly thigh fats, the thing that bothers them the most when wearing shorts is cellulite ! Now, slim ladies, don’t think you’re spared from this agony! Cellulite doesn’t discriminate; it affects both full figured ladies and skinny ones. In fact, cellulite affects approximately 90% of women!

Check out these tips to remove the annoying cellulite on your thighs, hips, tummy or even arms!

Keep a healthy diet

One of the most important things you can do to get rid of cellulite is to eat as healthily as you can. Eat plenty of fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, fiber and whole grains which help to flush out wastes and toxins from the intestinal tracts.

On the other hand, avoid high sugar and high calorie foods as well as processed foods with lots of processing and preservatives, as these can increase fat formation which worsens cellulite appearance or causes new cellulite to form. Remember, the less fat you have on your body, the less cellulite appears.

Drink plenty of water

Another way to get rid of cellulite is to constantly keep your body hydrated. Doing so gets rid of water retention and strengthens the collagen in your skin, helping to reduce the lumpy appearance of cellulite on your thighs. Also, increasing your daily water intake helps your body to shed its excess fat, including the fat stored as cellulite.

A good guide is to drink at least 8 glasses of water a day. To see the effect of more fresh water on reducing cellulite, try cutting down on tea and coffee too.

Wear loose fitting clothes

As a poor lymphatic circulation is one of the main causes of cellulite formation, it is important to ensure good circulation that prevents toxins and excess fluids from accumulating in the body. Thus, if you want to reduce the appearance of cellulite, avoid tight panties and clothing, especially around areas where you tend to have cellulite.

Besides, cellulite will also look worse if you wear tight fitting clothing. Wearing loose fitting clothing can help you to hide the unsightly cellulite, rather than draw attention to it.

Dry Skin Brushing

Another effective way to get rid of cellulite is through skin brushing. The massaging effect helps to stimulate skin cell rejuvenation and improve lymphatic circulation to flush toxins out of the body, making the skin soft, even and radiant, free from cellulite.

Alternatively, you may opt for body scrubs containing caffeine, which can help to reduce water retention, enhance fat metabolism, dilate blood vessels, improve lymphatic circulation and release toxin buildups, thereby reducing the appearance of cellulite.

Exercise

Regular exercise is not only beneficial to your overall health but it also helps you to get rid of cellulite effectively. Since cellulite is a type of fat, cardio workouts such as walking, jogging and cycling can help you to burn it off and expel toxins from your body through your skin. Once you have successfully reduced the fat in your body, toning exercises such as leg and butt training which target your problem spots are especially helpful.

Needless to say, cellulite will not disappear instantly. Allow yourself at least several weeks of regular exercise before you see visible reduction in the cellulite on your thighs and buttocks.

Avoid rapid weight loss

It’s a myth that weight loss can cure cellulite. While being able to lose weight fast is a dream come true for many ladies, it may not be good news for women with severe cellulite. Cellulite becomes more pronounced on loose skin, which is typically a result of rapid weight loss or ageing. As cellulite is nothing but pockets of fat that are pushed through the connective tissue under the skin, the bumps become more apparent naturally when your skin loses its elasticity and/or become thinner.

For a quick fix to get rid of cellulite, apply some skin firming cream. This helps to create a thicker skin cover that can help to cover up the bumps.

Quit smoking

Another inconspicuous way to remove cellulite is by quitting smoking. Cigarette smoke reduces the blood flow to deeper layers of the skin and affects the production of collagen, an essential element of our skin’s connective tissue. As a result, the tissue becomes stretched thus making it easier for underlying fat to show through, causing your skin to have a rough, bumpy appearance.
