Recently we uncovered the truth behind the beauty myth that what you eat doesn’t prevent cellulite. We know eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly are both ways that will help prevent the formation of cellulite… but how do you treat cellulite that is already present?
One way to treat cellulite is to get a massage. Massages play an important role in improving circulation and helping with the complete detoxification and oxygenation of your skin’s tissue. Specifically, massages that incorporate seaweed can help restore a youthful shape to your body. Particular types of seaweed, such as Ascophyllum Nodosum has been found to help balance blood cholesterol levels, provide broad support in all bodily functions, strengthen the immune system, and expel fats, heavy metals, toxins and pollutants. It is also known to regulate blood pressure and aid in digestion and bowel action. Another type of seaweed, Spirulina, is known to enhance physical and mental well-being, and helps to detoxify the body naturally.
Another way to treat cellulite is to kick dirty habits that lead to cellulite – such as smoking. Smoking is an overall major health risk to our body, and results in poorer quality of the skin. Smoking loosens the skin, damages the skin’s connective tissue and negatively affects the resiliency and strength of the skin and body – all of which can impact the development of cellulite. So if you don’t have a long enough list of reasons to quit, here is one more.
If you want to accelerate the cellulite busting process, head to the spa for a Repêchage Peppermint Sea Twist® Treatment. This treatment combines peppermint oil with freshly harvested seaweed to increase circulation and to help reduce the appearance of the dreaded “orange peel” look. The Repêchage Peppermint Sea Twist® also rids the body of accumulated toxins and reduces water retention while hydrating and nourishing your skin.
Topical care can be used as well, and are a great follow up to a professional seaweed treatment. A contouring cream, such as Repêchage Vita Cura Body Triple Action Slimming Body Cream, combined with seaweeds, Bupleurum, Caffeine and Coenzyme A, help to activate the combustion of fatty acids at an appreciable rate, and fight cellulite.
