It Works! Wednesday - Get Rid of those Saggy Baggy Elephant Thighs!

I don’t think there is anyone that is pleased with their appearance that suffers from having cellulite. Cellulite is tissue on the skin that makes your skin look dimply or lumpy. Most of the time, women are affected by it. Cellulite appears mainly on the bum and the thighs. There are different ways a person can go about treating the cellulite and reducing anymore from showing up on their skin. Thank goodness!! 

One way to reduce the the look of cellulite is by applying Defining Gel twice a day in a massaging circular motion to your affected area.  I use the gel in place of a moisterizer each day when I get out of the shower.  You will really notice a difference!!  I have also had clients say the gel helps rid them of pain in their joints or from fibromyelga.




Defining Gel is an intensive skin care gel that hydrates the skin, while also firming areas such as the abdomen, back, legs, and upper arms. When used regularly, Defining Gel minimizes the appearance of skin dimples and varicose veins. It's the perfect companion to our Ultimate Applicator.
Use Defining Gel twice a day to hydrate, soften, tone, and firm all over. Immediate and progressive results

This product is one of my daily staples!  You will LOVE it!!

Of course I had to research some of the other ways to get rid of the cottage cheese look.  Read below to find how what you need to do to your diet to get rid of the elephant in the room!

The most natural way to go about reducing the cellulite is by eating the right foods, and avoiding fatty junk foods that build up toxins and also cause you to gain weight.
Avoiding saturated fats is one of the keys to reduce cellulite on your skin. You will need to avoid things such as red meat, and diary products that have full cream in them. You will need to go with white meat products and low fat dairy products instead.
Carbohydrates, such as white flour, bread, and rice, will quickly increase your blood sugar level, and store excessive fat in your body, so you will want to avoid these foods. In addition to this, you will want to eat lots of foods that contain omega-3 fatty acids, such as avocado, fish, and nuts. These foods will aid in help the fat burn from your body.
You should have a great intake of antioxidants, as they will increase the chance you losing more weight, by expelling all of the toxins in your body that are causing the fat to build up. In this case it is good to consider eating some citrus fruits.
You will also need to be reducing the amount of fluids being stored inside your body, as having too many fluids is what can cause the cellulite to be on your skin as well. Celery, Parsley, and Dandelion leaves are some green veggies that can help absorb the extra water fat from your body. A good source of potassium will help you as well. Try eating some bananas!
Reducing sugary and salty foods is something that would be a must if you want to keep the water tissues from building up inside your body. Your health tissues can be highly damaged if you consume too much salt or sugar, which is crucial to having smooth skin.
Do not drink alcohol as it increases sluggishness and causes your blood flow to slow down, which is bad for the radicals in your body, and can damage your healthy skin cells.
There foods that keep you form having cellulite, and there are foods that make your cellulite worse. Be sure to reduce your intake of carbohydrates, and eat more citrus fruits, and green leafy veggies. Also eat fish, whole grains, and lean meats, white meat. By doing this, you will be on your way to healthier skin and a healthier body overall.
