Cellulite and how to fight it
It is one of the unpleasant phenomena of aging: cellulite. And eventually the little dents form on the thighs. As a rule, this happens shortly after the 30th birthday. But what can you do against orange peel skin? In the drugstore there are many products that promise miracles. But most of the time they do not help, and the creams are also really expensive. However, there is a simple remedy that can be used effectively against the dimples: a sea salt scrub. You can easily do this yourself. The peeling costs less than one euro.
How does this peeling work?
In order to understand how the effect of the sea salt cure comes about, it is first necessary to clarify how cellulite develops in the first place: After all, the dimples are not caused by sagging skin alone. Rather, they are a kind of disease of civilization. Every day we humans are surrounded by toxins, this fact is impossible to escape. Harmful substances are deposited everywhere in the body, including under the skin. They cause inflammation there, which leads to weakening of the tissue. Water can then be deposited at these weak points. This is how the depressions are created. You can’t fight them with pure sports. After all, the dents have nothing to do with fat, but with water.
Successes can already be seen after the first few weeks
And this is where exfoliation comes in. This effect is countered in three ways. First of all, the salt crystals themselves are very coarse-grained. This means that they remove dead skin cells and widen the pores. This is necessary so that the active ingredients of the salt can develop their effect. They have a disinfecting effect. Thus, they effectively fight the inflammation that is to blame for the dents. Surely you will not see any effect after the first application. But if you use the natural product regularly, you will see the first results after a few weeks. The inflammation heals, fresh tissue forms – and the dimples are reduced.
Other effects during the application
But rubbing with sea salt has a third effect: it really boosts blood circulation in the treated areas. This means that the blood flows faster here for a while. In the process, it repeatedly takes unwanted substances with it and disposes of them. If you stimulate your blood circulation in this way, you will effectively prevent cellulite. In this respect, the application is also suitable for people who do not yet suffer from the visible consequences of inflammation.
Preparation of the sea salt scrub
For one application you need the following ingredients:
Peeling with sea salt, buttermilk and olive oil
- 1 cup sea salt, as coarse as possible
- 3 tablespoons buttermilk
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
Simply mix the three ingredients in a bowl and the scrub is ready for the first application. If you wish, you can also add a few drops of essential oil. This does not affect the effect, but provides an extremely pleasant scent.
Coffee scrub with vegetable oil
Mix some coffee grounds with vegetable oil. Spread the paste on the affected areas and gently massage the skin with circular movements. You can take up to 20 minutes to do this. Shower off the scrub and simply pat the skin dry, leaving some oil behind. The oil is absorbed by the skin and gives it extra care.
Peeling with sea salt, honey and milk
- 2 tablespoons sea salt
- 1 tablespoon natural honey
- A little warm milk
Simply mix the three ingredients in a bowl and the scrub is ready for the first application. Especially for pimples or a few days after shaving the legs, the sweet peeling is particularly suitable, it has a cleansing and soothing effect on the skin. In addition, the honey has an anti-inflammatory effect.
How to use the natural product?
The scrub is very easy to use. Remove a small amount of sea salt scrub from the bowl and rub it on the affected areas of the body. Be very thorough in the process. Work on the areas with circular movements for about a minute. Then simply rinse the mixture. Since it contains oil anyway, you do not need to put cream on the skin. However, there is no harm in doing so. Especially if you tend to have sensitive skin, a dab of moisturizer never goes amiss.
