The skin is your body’s largest organ, and this is the area where any signs of imbalances or toxic elements come out. Furthermore, with a lack of exercise or muscle tone, dimples on the skin tend to become very evident. These imperfections on the skin are called cellulites, and the following are some techniques that can help eliminate these concerns.
- Stimulate the blood and detoxify through dry brushing
While cellulite occurs due to muscle atrophy, these issues can also occur when there are too much toxins in your body. Simple scrubbing of your entire body during bath time is not enough since you need to go deeper to the root of the problem. With this in mind, it may be worth considering using a body brush with bristles designed to detoxify your body naturally and easily. This tool also helps stimulate lymph and blood flow, and pores are also opened up to remove toxic elements thoroughly.
To begin, simply use the body brush to gently scrub the legs in a light and brisk movement. Work your way up towards the stomach in a circular motion going to a clockwise direction. After wards, brush your arms with sweeping upwards motion until you reach the heart area. These movements facilitate efficient lymphatic and blood flow to facilitate healthy skin from the inside and out. Just be sure to perform this technique at least 2 to 5 minutes in a day to achieve outstanding results.
When you look for a body brush, choose one that is made of purely natural materials. If you can find vegetable-derived bristles, these would be even better because they are not synthetic and loaded with chemicals. As for the bristles, go for those that are relatively stiff without being too hard and painful on your skin. A brush with an attachable handle also works perfectly since this can reach areas that are usually hard to scrub.
Generally, this technique will not only renew and improve blood flow, but it can also eliminate dry areas on your skin such as your ankles, elbows and knees. When performed regularly, you will notice significant improvements on your skin as it becomes smooth, supple and radiant. The entire procedure is also very simple and easy to do before or after bath once your skin is dry.
- Schedule a myofascial massage at least once a week
There are some people who claim that cellulite typically forms in the connective tissue layer found just below your skin. This area is called the superficial fascia, and it is where fat cells are stored. Since this layer of connective tissue is fibrous by nature, injury, poor exercise and inactivity often result in the rippled appearance or dimpling of the skin. In addition to becoming coarse and less flexible, the superficial fascia may tend to stick to the underlying structures of the skin and cause it to slide over.
With all these things in mind, there are skin treatment services offered at spas such as the myofascial release or massage. This technique smoothens the superficial fascia, as well as support other muscle types and addresses joint issues linked with imbalances in your fascia. In case you have no time to undergo this type of massage, you can always get a foam roller that massages your deep tissue to achieve similar benefits.
- Discover the benefits of coffee scrub on your skin
You can also use coffee scrub in eliminating cellulite naturally. Keep in mind that this technique should be supported by exercise and skin brushing to work as expected. Coffee scrub supports natural exfoliation while the gentle massaging movement stimulates lymph and blood flow while tightening your skin. You can also use coffee wraps or scrubs to reduce loose skin and dimples, and these can help exfoliate while making your skin smoother.
To perform this technique, simply combine certain ingredients such as half a cup of coffee grounds, 3 tablespoons of coconut oil, and 3 tablespoons of brown sugar to slough away any toxins on your skin. Stir and mix these ingredients well until you create a substance that comes with a thick and paste-like consistency. Just massage the mixture on affected areas while applying some firm pressure on it. Then, wash the coffee scrub mixture thoroughly just as you normally would with soap.
Ideally, you should consider applying this mixture at least twice or thrice a week. You should be able to notice visible results in a matter of weeks. As for the excess mixture you have made, you can always place this in a glass container and put in the refrigerator for future use.
