Cellulite is a common and frustrating problem. Especially with summer now here, most of us want to be out wearing shorts, swimming costumes, and bikinis.
However, if you, like many thousands of others all over the world, suffer from unsightly cellulite, you may feel a little more resistant to wearing very revealing clothing.
Is there any way to get rid of cellulite in just a couple of days without having to do anything stressful, painful, expensive or even dangerous?
What causes cellulite?
To know how to battle cellulite, you need to know what causes it in the first place. Cellulite isn’t necessarily complicated.
It is caused by the presence of subcutaneous fat that causes the skin to look dimpled. It isn’t dangerous, but it doesn’t look particularly attractive, either.
A lot of what causes cellulite is to do with what we eat. Because it consists of fat, eating foods that are high in fats, sugars and salts can help to cause cellulite.
This means that cutting these fats out of your diet is going to help reduce your cellulite straight away, right? Well, not necessarily.
Look into superfoods
Although cutting the bad stuff out of your diet is certainly going to help, it isn’t the only way to tackle cellulite.
In addition, eating a good diet and exercising regularly is going to take a while to affect the cellulite you already suffer from.
Isn’t there a quicker way to get rid of that unsightly dimpling? This is where superfoods come in.
Science is discovering all sorts of incredible foods that can help your health and appearance, and many of them are the things you eat every day without even knowing it.
By eating more of these great foods, you can tackle cellulite quickly and effectively in no time at all.
Try using superfoods in smoothies
The most effective way of getting all the right superfoods into your body quickly and easily is by blending them up into smoothies.
This is a delicious and nutritious way to keep feeling and looks great. Simply take all the best foodstuffs out there and combine them to make delicious smoothies, ideal for the summer, that can help you burn your cellulite in just a couple of days.
Superfoods to consider for your smoothies
The most popular superfoods that are added to smoothies are the following:
Honey – this sweet and sticky treat is not only delicious, but it is packed with all-natural good stuff.
Naturally high in antioxidants to help your skin rejuvenate (and therefore strengthen the subcutaneous layer where the fat deposits usually break down to make your skin appear dimply and bumpy), honey also contains oligosaccharides which can aid digestion.
Strawberries – these are a favorite in any smoothie, and they are so good for you! The daily of intake of vitamin C that you get from just a handful of these delicious berries are a great boost for the health of your skin.
Bananas – a classic flavor combination with strawberries, adding bananas to your smoothie can also give you an extra shot of potassium, which can help with high blood pressure, and with fiber that helps your metabolism get up and go.
With a higher metabolism, your body is better able to process fats, which means no more ugly build up beneath the skin of your thighs and buttocks!
Almond milk – most people know how good nuts are in a balanced diet, but did you know that adding almond milk, as opposed to cow’s milk, to a smoothie, is a really healthy choice?
Packed with potassium, vitamin E and magnesium, even just a little splash of almond milk in your smoothie can really speed along the cellulite burning process.
Oranges – yes, everybody knows that oranges are packed full of vitamin C that is absolutely essential for the good health of your skin, but did you also know that they are jam-packed full of B vitamins, fiber, and calcium, too?
All these things combine to help not only your general health but also help your skin to recover from cellulite.
Raspberries – these delicious berries, which combine deliciously with bananas and strawberries, are naturally high in antioxidants and also contain ellagic acid, which has been proven to help fight cancer.
So, not only are these berries delicious and healthy, but they can also help to reduce the appearance of cellulite in just a couple of days, especially in combination with other ingredients from this list!
These are just a few of the amazing superfoods that are currently available on the market and that taste great in smoothies.
However, adding any sort of berries – blackberries, blueberries etc. – to your daily smoothie can also have an incredible effect on the appearance of cellulite in just a few days.
