Be sure to:

  • Exercise
    Working out for at least 30 minutes five times a week firms up the skin by increasing muscle tone and keeping connective tissue fibers healthy. Exercise also increases blood circulation to these problem areas.
    Dieting has to be combined with regular exercise to be effective in controlling or reducing cellulite. The following dietary changes are recommended:
    Drinking lots of water. Water cleanses the digestive system and flushes toxins out of the body.
    Eating a low-fat, low-sugar, high-fiber diet with emphasis on fruits, vegetables, and whole grains.
    Refraining from smoking.
    Smoking causes poor blood circulation and contributes to premature aging of the skin. Avoiding highly processed foods, caffeine, and alcohol.
    Avoiding salty foods.
    Salty foods increase water retention and make cellulite appear worse.
    Maintaining a normal, healthy body weight.
    Obesity increases fatty deposits and makes cellulite much worse.

  • Allopathic Treatment
    Liposuction is the most widely used treatment for cellulite. Fat cells are removed by suctioning through a cut or excision in the buttocks or thigh. Then some of these fat cells are redeposited into areas of dimpling to smooth out the contour. While liposuction significantly reduces total amount of fat in the body immediately, it may not significantly improve skin appearance.

  • Body Massage
    Massage may have benefits by improving blood circulation and lymphatic drainage. Regular massage also helps maintain smoother skin.

The Dr Baumann Body Special Strong is recommended for cellulite treatment formulated to reduce the appearance of cellulite on the legs, stomach and arms.

Avoid:

  • Lack of exercise
    Cellulite may be caused by impaired blood circulation and poor muscle tone underneath the skin, which are caused by sedentary lifestyles.

  • High fat and sugar consumption
    This often leads to excess caloric and fat intake, which causes increases in body fat and thus, cellulite.

  • Food allergy
    Food allergy causes a variety of symptoms including food craving, weight gain, bloating and water retention, all of which worsen cellulite.

  • Highly processed foods
    Highly processed foods that contain preservatives, artificial sweeteners and other additives
    Heavy consumption of prepackaged foods causes build up of these toxins in the body.

  • Yo-yo dieting
    Yo-yo dieting causes a woman to lose fat in the upper body while increasing fat deposits in the buttocks, thighs, and hips.
    Therefore, this practice tends to make cellulite problems worse than before dieting.

  • Sun exposure
    Prolonged exposure to the sun accelerates the skin-aging process.
