From: Top Tips from Elemis,
“The statistics show cellulite was non-existent in China before they introduced the fast food chains. Air hostesses are known for having a higher level of cellulite from constant imbalance in the body, being hydrated one minute and dehydrated the next. Taking these statistics into account, cellulite production is not about weight, it's about lifestyle management. Poor circulation, fluid retention and congested digestive systems of a poor diet, stress, drinking, smoking and lack of exercise are all by-products of a toxic lifestyle. These all progressively encourage the advance of cellulite, resulting in the skin's inefficiency over time to eliminate toxins and break down of fat. The good news is, we now have products that are proven to work."
You can do an awful lot at home and we gravely underestimate the home spa experience. The body responds well to a little TLC, so the best way to approach diminishing those dimples is to take things into your own hands with these three simple steps:
1. Breakdown Combat the appearance of dimples by using a firm cactus body brush daily on dry skin before taking a bath or shower. Using continuous movements, this will stimulate circulation and lymphatic flow. Apply Elemis Body Sculpting Lipo-Refining Serum to help breakdown cellulite and help long term prevention.
2. Smooth out Finding the right product for example our Cellutox Active Body Concentrate will help smooth out the appearance of the orange peel effect.
3. Build up Keeping the flow of circulation onto the area is the key to preventing the build up of cellulite. Taking body enhancement capsules is a great way to stimulate the lymph and metabolism and help maintain good skin and body functions and remember to use our Body Sculpting Firming Cream to help firm the skin.
After your warm bath, you can naturally stimulate tissue drainage and redefine the silhouette using massage techniques on problem areas such as hips, thighs, buttocks, backs of arms and inside of knees.
