The dimpled look known as cellulite is caused by fat underneath the skin pressing against connective tissue, and just about every woman will deal with it at some point.
You can blame it on genetics, hormones, lifestyle or the way your body distributes fat, but you cant cure it. However, there are several things you can do to minimize the appearance of cellulite and enjoy smoother skin.
1. CHOOSE CLEAN FOODS
If the majority of your diet consists of junk, youre probably carrying excess fat. The more fat you have around the hips, buttocks and thighs, the more visible cellulite will be. Switching to whole natural foods increases your intake of nutrients and fiber while reducing how much refined sugar and fat you consume.
As you eat more fiber, you should also drink more water to help your body stay hydrated and flush out waste. Adequate water intake reduces bloating to further decrease the visibility of cellulite.
2. DITCH THE SALT
Processed foods are notorious for their high salt content. Eating salt dehydrates the body and can lead to uncomfortable bloating that also increases how much cellulite you can see.Instead of adding salt to your food, try different spices that will add flavor without sodium.
Changing your diet will automatically knock down your salt intake, but you still need to be a careful label-reader. Some healthy foods, such as canned beans and tomatoes, may still contain high levels of salt that can stress your body as it tries to assimilate what amounts to a highly processed, nutrient-poor substance.
3. BALANCE YOUR EXERCISE PROGRAM
Doing hours of steady-state cardio can increase levels of stress hormones, particularly cortisol, which in turn stimulates fat storage.
A balanced exercise regimen that includes strength training, circuit or interval training and moderate amounts of steady-state cardio builds muscle and sheds fat. Over time, youll develop a slimmer, tighter physique and cellulite will be less apparent.
4. APPLY GEL-V HOT BEFORE BED
Eating well and doing the right exercises are key components to smoothing cellulite, but to accelerate the anti-cellulite process you should apply Gel-V Hot every night before you go to bed. Gel-V Hot is made from a proprietary mineral and essential vitamin complex that is enriched with caffeine to smooth cellulite and support skin regeneration at the cellular level.
You’ll know Gel-V Hot is working by the warming sensation you feel when it’s applied. Upon contact it penetrates the skin to intensify your cellulite treatment.
You can apply Gel-V Hot with your hands (it’s best to use your knuckles) or you can use the V-Glove which has nine rotating spheres that deliver a stimulating massage to targeted areas that have cellulite. The ergonomic palm-shaped design and 360-spin range of motion on the spheres kneads the dermal tissue over your cellulite helping to smooth it out.
As shown in the pictures above, Gel-V Hot can be used on the stomach to tighten the skin there in addition to being applied to areas that you have cellulite.
