Juicing for Cellulite

Cellulite is skin that looks dimply and uneven, and somewhat resembles the skin of an orange. It is something that a lot of us have ourselves or have seen on others, even on healthy people.

Cellulite is more prevalent in women than men and is commonly found on hips, thighs, buttocks and breasts.

Cellulite can be caused by many factors, such as:

A poor diet – High sodium foods like processed meats, bacon and cheeses cause water retention which will cause excess swelling. Salt is known to be one of the main causes of that rippling effect we see with cellulite. Processed products often contain inflammatory foods such as sugar, fat, and salt. So, these should also be reduced if you wish to reduce or avoid cellulite – that means soft drinks, crisps, baked goods and snack foods.

Inactivity – For many of us our work life may involve sitting at a desk for extended periods. However, regular exercise and movement can help you reduce body fat, which makes cellulite less noticeable. It’s important to make being active a daily priority. Starting with a brisk walk, joining a gym or choosing a gym or yoga class you can book in for and commit to which will get you moving.

Hormones – It’s worth checking out your hormone levels if you find that you are both active and lead a healthy lifestyle and still struggle with cellulite. Hormones such as estrogen, insulin, prolactin, noradrenaline and thyroid hormones all contribute to the development of cellulite. So perhaps liaise with your doctor to rule out any underlying issues.

 

How can you treat/reduce cellulite?

 

Juicing for Cellulite – Along with a balanced diet, juicing could be an effective method to help reduce/avoid cellulite. Juicing daily will enable you to include certain fruits/vegetables into your daily diet. Try and choose ingredients with antioxidant and cleansing properties to facilitate the removal of toxins.

Pineapple and Cucumber Juice

2 slices of fresh pineapple
1 cucumber

Pineapple and cucumber will both help to cleanse your colon in a natural way. Both

ingredients are diuretics and so can help to eliminate toxins that accumulate in your body

and cause the appearance of cellulite. They also repair skin tissues which have been damaged.

 

Classic Celery Juice

Celery acts as a natural diuretic, stimulating the kidneys to flush excess water from the body. It is often recommended to help eradicate cellulite as it encourages the exchange of carbohydrates in the body. Due to its high Vitamin B content it also has a soothing effect on skin, hair, nails and eyes.   Just cut up your celery and juice!

 

Carrot and Orange Juice

 

1-2 large oranges
2 carrots

Oranges contain high amounts of methoxylated bioflavonoids. These are natural chemicals that help fix imbalances in cell development and fat distribution, which could eventually lead to cellulite development one day. Studies have shown that carotenoids found in foods like carrots inhibit fat accumulation and may also help fight inflammation and protect collagen. This means consuming carrots can help to promote healthier, firmer skin leading to less cellulite.

 

Drink plenty of water

Hydrating your body keeps your skin cells looking fresh and renewed, which can reduce the appearance of cellulite. Start by drinking a glass of water first thing in the morning, before anything else and then continue throughout the day to ensure you remain hydrated. You can also add lemon too

Dry Body Brushing

Dry brushing has been part of Ayurvedic traditional medicine for centuries. Many dermatologists also agree that dry body brushing 2-3 times a week can assist circulation, lymphatic drainage, and visibly reduce the appearance of cellulite.

‘Envirocare’s Body Brush’ is made using natural ingredients

In addition to dry body brushing, using a body scrub like ‘Giovanni Sugar Scrub’ while you’re in the shower or bath can be helpful for extra exfoliation.
