Orange peel, lipedema, cellulite, cottage cheese – whatever you call it, one thing’s certain: No woman on the planet longs for more cellulite. It may surprise you to learn that the term “cellulite” is not medically inspired. It gained popularity in French salons around the end of the nineteenth century, and it describes the bumpy, dimpled, inconsistent appearance of the skin above fat deposits.
Doctors say cellulite is actually quite natural – they say this uneven skin surface is found in 90 percent of post-pubescent females and that it simply indicates a breakdown in the connective tissue around fat cells. Cellulite is more noticeable on the female form because female skin tissue is thinner than male skin tissue. Still, it’s hard to convince women to simply accept their cellulite as a natural occurrence. Society has long derided “cottage cheese ” skin as ugly and undesirable.
Fortunately, those who wish to banish cellulite may do so by applying the techniques listed below.
Cellulite is exacerbated when one’s fat cells are swollen with extra sugar. Salt is also problematic because it encourages fluid retention, making cellulite look even worse. To limit the appearance of cellulite, eat no more than six teaspoons of sugar and 200 mg of sodium each day.
To see a noticeable reduction of cellulite, apply a firming lotion or cream. Of course, you’ll want to select a product that’s user-approved to firm skin and improve its structure. Nuxe Paris has created a lotion that fits the bill perfectly. Its Body Fondant Firming Cream includes barley sugars and Brazilian mimosa to instantly lift skin, thereby decreasing cellulite dimples. Nuxe Paris’ cellulite solution also contains rye flakes and Kigelia Africana to improve skin structure. After using this product for 28 days, 86 percent of users reported that their skin was more toned, while 82 percent said it was visibly smoother.
To prepare your skin for cellulite solutions from Nuxe Paris and other brands, apply a body exfoliator such as Fat Girl Scrub from Bliss. The Bliss Fat Girl Scrub increases circulation and is specially formulated for cellulite-prone areas.
Muscle is smoother than fat. If you lift weights regularly, your cellulite levels will drop. Lunges, leg presses and squats are particularly powerful cellulite-busting exercises.
Kim Kardashian has graced many a magazine cover and she has quickly become known as a fashion and beauty trendsetter for the tweens and twenty somethings. This Armenian beauty is rarely seen without makeup so it was interesting to see her bare it all for the cover of March's Allure magazine. Typically, Kim is always "done" and on her reality show Keeping Up With The Kardashians she is constantly seen getting primped to perfection by her own personal hairstylist and makeup artist. However, after her short lived nuptials to Kris Humphries, she secluded herself to the privacy of her family, cancelled bookings and made a two month vow to give all that up and just be her, au natural. Although she lasted a little less than 60 days, we won't hold that against her.
For someone who's face and hair is most of the time in the hands of someone else it was really interesting to read about Kim's favorite beauty products to use when she's on her own. Like clothes, Kim's fabulous taste also extends into the beauty realm where she mentions a few of her must have's such as Kevyn Aucoin's Sensual Skin Enhancer in SX 05 (which she uses as a concealer) and applies it with the BeautyBlender, an egglike sponge that gives a flawless and airbrushed foundation application. Bellisima!
