How to get rid of cellulite
80-90% of women have cellulite (source), everyone on our Yoom team included! It's really common and chances are most of your friends have it too, regardless of weight or body type. Beyond being a cosmetic concern for women (cellulite is a concern for only 10% of men), cellulite indicates a clogged and congested lymph system.
Should we pay attention to a sluggish lymph system? The short answer is: yes! Because our lymphatic system is our body’s internal filtration system, filtering our blood and flushing its acidic and toxic waste. When clogged, our cells, tissue and organs become overloaded with toxins which lead to a weakened immune system, chronic fatigue, bloating, weight gain, poor digestion and eventually… a build up of cellulite due to the accumulation of fat deposits in the subcutaneous skin layers causing that orange peel appearance.
How to say ‘aurevoir’ to your cellulite?
Because our lymphatic system does NOT circulate on its own, it needs us to stimulate it, daily, with muscle contractions through exercising along with dry brushing and massaging to trigger a drainage of the fat deposits and toxins that create cellulite.
Focusing on our problem areas like our thighs, buttocks and stomach, follow the routine below before your shower for just 5 minutes a day as part of the self-massage routine that Ayurveda recommends doing every morning (read Self body massage with oil). Doing it in the morning before you start the day can help with morning grogginess, making you feel fresh & revitalized. Within a couple of weeks to months you can expect to see real improvements on your problem areas.
Repeat the steps below on each problem area like your stomach and buttocks. Aurevoir cellulite!
