Need to Combat Cellulite?

Cellulite is a “cosmetic condition” which results from weakened connective tissue structures just below the surface of the skin.  It affects women 9 times more than men.  It affects mainly the buttocks and thighs but can also appear in the lower part of the abdomen, the nape of the neck and the upper parts of the arms.  It’s something we’ve all experienced or have experienced in our life and can often be a cause of anxiety for us.

To help reduce the appearance, we need to make sure we are a healthy weight for our height,  looking at either a paleo or ketogenic diet (if needing help in this area) is a good place to start as well as enjoying regular exercise, which pumps the lymphatics, which helps with removal of extra fat, helps to strengthen and tone the muscles.

Make sure you have a massage regularly either dry brushing or with a massage oil.  With dry brushing do this at least every time before you have a shower with a loofah or soft brush starting from the feet and work your way up to your heart and arms down to the heart to remove dead skin cells and improve circulation of blood and lymph.  We would recommend our Refreshing Massage Oil especially due to the citrus oils within, especially the White Grapefruit which has been shown to help with cellulite in particular.

Using a scrub regularly will have a similar affect to the above…Salt or Sugar Scrubs are very good at improving the circulation & lymphatics.  Our “Lemongrass & Sea Kelp Salt Scrub” have been shown to help in particular, kelp has been shown to have soothing, softening and toning effects to the skin.

Internally ensuring enough water is drunk daily, along with Omega 3 Oils such as cold water fish (salmon, sardines) in the diet, Flax or Cod Liver oils.  Herbal teas can also help, our Cellulite Tea Combinationincludes Gotu Kola, Ginger, Schizandra & Calendula…shown to help with improving circulation, lymphatic clearance, enhancing connective tissue integrity which in turn helps with overall appearance.

We recommend any treatment that you endeavour to follow to stick with for at least 3 months for a decent amount of improvement and to then try and maintain your results by including the above as often as you can within your daily routine as well as including a foods such as cucumber, watermelon, berries, green tea, pineapple, grapefruit, lemons, limes, beetroot, cruciferous vegetables, onions, garlic, apple cider vinegar & even looking at using a rebounder in your exercise routine for 5 – 15 minutes daily.  Click on any of the above links to view products or email me at if you want to chat about anything further.
