After giving birth to your first child, maybe you can’t remember the last time you incidentally or accidentally expose your tummy. You don’t work out, but you got bulges in your triceps area. Since then, you avoid wearing sleeveless tops. Well, you might just want to protect yourself from embarrassment, but if this already prevents you from wearing what you want, it is a concern you have to address. Better stop hiding those bulges under your clothes, and give yourself some love. By the way, you are not obese; those are just cellulites. You can try to use an aromatherapy cellulite treatment.
Cellulite and Causes of Formation
Cellulite is a collection of inorganic substances trapped underneath the skin. These inorganic substances come from your consumption of partially or non-hydrogenated oil, MSG, gluten, food coloring and certain fluids. The body is incapable of breaking down and getting rid of these substances and these cause deposits in the lymph glands, hardening of the fat cells and dimpled and lumpy skin surface. Cellulite usually appears on thighs, buttocks, abdomen and back of the arms.
Theories say that inactive lifestyle, poor diet and even genetics contribute to cellulite build up. Some studies, on the other hand, say that the fluctuations in the female hormone estrogen play a significant role in the development of cellulite in the body. Because men’s body do not produce as much estrogen as the women’s body does, only ten percent of men suffer from cellulite; the bigger percentage goes to women. Menstruation may prompt cellulite formation, and more of it shows up during pregnancy.
Aromatherapy Cellulite Treament – How To Take Advantage Of This
Several procedures and medications have been introduced through the years to remove and get rid of cellulite. Unfortunately, none seemed to work magic on this worrying condition. However, why try the financially draining treatments when you can have a heavenly approach in cellulite removal – aromatherapy.
Using aromatic oils has been known as a form of alternative medicine that can revitalize the mind and body. What people do not know is that its effect extends to being a natural remedy for cellulite. As a matter of fact, essential oils can help those puckered skin areas become even. Never mind the cost because aside from the oils, what this treatment needs from you is just effort and commitment, as this will form part of an everyday routine.
How Aromatherapy Eliminates Cellulite
The causes of cellulite formation provide the baseline on how to get rid of them. Select up to three essential oils that will fight off the causes. Some essential oils can induce blood circulation, and diminish fluid retention. Other oils stimulate hormonal balance, flush toxins from the lymphatic nodes and even suppress appetite. The most common anti-cellulite oils used are pine, petitgrain, juniper and grapefruit. Essential oils may irritate the skin though, so they have to be diluted by blending them with carrier oil. Any carrier oil may be used, but it is important to choose one that will allow the oil to sink deep into the skin.
Massage the blend into the thighs, buttocks, abdomen, back of the arms and other affected areas twice a day, ideally in the morning and evening. Use firm circular strokes until the area becomes warm and relaxed, or until the skin has fully absorbed the oil. Again, you have to do it day after day to eliminate the cellulite and prevent further build up. As a supplement to this treatment, you may also add few drops of the blend to your bath once a week.
It is impossible to get rid of cellulite but it can be reduced to almost invisible. Aromatherapy cellulite treatment does not work overnight; the results take time to manifest. If you want to expedite the process, you may want to modify your lifestyle and diet. Go for fruits over pasta. Drink enough water and exercise every morning. In no time, you will get back the confidence that your cellulite once stole from you.
