When my wonderful colleagues from the photography department put together a collage of star pops, the girls in the editorial office choked with righteous anger: “We admire their thin bodies and try to be like them, but it turns out that under chic evening dresses they hide THIS!..” Having concluded that no self-respecting Russian woman will allow her body to turn into a pile of cellulite, I decided to figure out what is the reason for the appearance of this disgrace on the thighs of the most luxurious actresses of our time.
I don't know about you, but I, for example, have been fighting cellulite for as many years as I can remember. And I must say, has achieved certain results. At least, if he is hiding somewhere on my body, then he does not expose himself to the public! But for some reason it seems to me that as soon as I relax, he will immediately make itself felt. And the blame for everything is estrogens (female hormones, which we all have), which activate special enzymes - metalloproteinases, which change the structure of collagen and accelerate the formation of hard tissues. Cellulite lives in collagen, and not at all in fat - therefore, the fight against the "orange peel" must be approached in a complex manner. One is not a warrior in the field: even the daily use of an anti-cellulite cream as the only fighter against this scourge is unlikely to help.
Strategy and tactics
Have you noticed that the day after sitting with champagne, cellulite becomes more obvious? The same picture can be observed after the evening abuse of salted and smoked. Control over the modifications of your own body is better than any specialists to tell you what you can and should eat and what foods you should avoid. Believe me, even if you regularly attend anti-cellulite procedures, you cannot do without proper nutrition. Please also note that strict diets aimed at fast weight loss only exacerbate cellulite. This discovery was made by specialists from the American Association of Plastic Surgeons, who followed 30 women with cellulite and overweight. I recommend paying attention to "strategic nutrition": Demi Moore and Sharon Stone eat prunes to combat puffiness,Heidi Klum and Cindy Crawford - Vinegar Salad Before Dinner; Oprah and Rachel Rae Drinking Wulong Slimming Tea; cleansing herbal teas are drunk by Denise Richards, Jessica Simpson and Michelle Williams. The ideal anti-cellulite diet is five meals a day, 80% fruits and vegetables and 20% animal protein. Raw vegetables are preferred and balsamic vinegar should be used instead of salt. Freshly squeezed juices and food supplements with calcium, water with a pH of more than 6 and a mineralization of more than 300 mg / l, green tea and teas with caraway seeds, peppermint and anise are welcome.five meals a day, 80% fruits and vegetables and 20% animal protein.

If your anti-cellulite cream is in the farthest corner of the toilet shelf and you only use it when it catches your eye, don't waste time and money! It makes sense to use it only on a regular basis (ideally, twice a day). This is despite the fact that the latest generation of creams have an amazingly high concentration of active ingredients! Pay attention to concentrates and serums - they act faster (again, only with regular use). It's nice that cosmetics manufacturers do not stop for a minute and anti-cellulite preparations are becoming more and more effective. Remember at least one of the latest novelties that shook my imagination - Body Shaping Supplement, Clarins. The contents of its ampoules can be added to any body cream. Effectiveness guaranteed. By the way, as before,an unconditional victory over cellulite can be achieved using products based on caffeine - and the higher its concentration, the better.
Mesotherapy, ozone therapy, ultrasound … There are more than enough techniques to fight cellulite. It is difficult to say which one is the most effective. Everything is very individual. For example, I went through an inexpensive course of ozone injections, the result from which I was simply shocked. But much more expensive mesotherapy did not give such results. While my friend's picture was radically opposite! Plastic surgeons unanimously repeat: “Among the mechanical methods of action, endermology has proven itself, allowing for deep massage and drainage. Infrared light in combination with ultrasound and radio frequencies has a positive, but short-term effect, and, moreover, these techniques are quite expensive. Mesotherapy is being replaced by a laser. And we do not recommend fighting cellulite with the help of monopolar radio frequencies”.
