Effectively reduce cellulite and water retention
Taking good care of yourself and paying close attention to the factors that trigger water retention in the body should help you avoid or alleviate the problem of cellulite.
In fact, water retention is one of the main physiological causes that contributes to the development of this skin problem.
Although it isn't directly responsible for those cellulite dimples, water retention can have physiological effects that lead to the appearance of those fatty ripples, also known as orange peel-skin, that women hate so much, on one or more parts of the body.
Considering that water is vital for our body and that any excess water is expelled naturally, it may seem strange that it can be one of the causes of cellulite.
But it is.
Let's find out why.
The physiological causes of water retention
Many things can lead to water retention in various parts of the body.
For example, poor circulation or lymphatic drainage dysfunction can lead to muscle stiffness and water retention.
Here are some of the main causes of water retention:
- the weakening of the walls of the blood and lymphatic vessels
- blockage in blood or lymphatic vessels in the upper parts of the body
- higher than normal blood viscosity
- heart or kidney problems
- hereditary factors
- hormonal problems
- an accumulation of water between tissues and cells as a result of an inflammation or infection.
There are a wide variety of triggers, such as poor diet, an unhealthy lifestyle, lack of exercise, an accumulation of toxins , poor body posture, the improper use of drugs, or insomnia.
Water retention is also a common problem during pregnancy in most women.
How to alleviate the problem of water retention
It’s clear that you should try to find out which factors may be causing your body to retain fluid and lead to the appearance of cellulite, and then eliminate them.
There are various things you can try in order to alleviate the problem:
- Have a manual lymphatic drainage session, a massage that restores the natural lymphatic flow;
- try to raise your legs occasionally. This will help the blood circulate from the lower limbs towards the upper parts of the body;
- maintain a healthy lifestyle with a healthy and balanced diet, keep physically active and get the right amount of sleep.
How to reduce the problem of cellulite
The advice given above can certainly help prevent cellulite from forming. Cellulite is just an irregular-looking fatty deposit under the skin's surface.
The vast majority of women have some cellulite, especially on the thighs, hips, buttocks and stomach.
Unfortunately, maintaining an optimal weight, eating healthily, staying active, and getting regular exercise may not be enough to get rid of cellulite.
One way to help is to combine these solutions with Tisanoreica anti-cellulite products or with Decottopia products, such as our Slimming Tonic.
Through the action of algae, such as kombu, combined with 17 herbs, it helps the body to regain its lipid balance, reducing the imperfections caused by cellulite.
As you can see, there is no magic elixir to get rid of cellulite, but you can certainly find some allies in the fight to minimise it.
