Sexy summer skin

It’s time to scrub up for the warmer months – starting with the cellulite fight. Summer is on its way and for most women, in fact up to 90% of women, that means it’s time to deal with the dreaded cellulite you’ve been covering up all winter. The orange-peel appearance of the skin is located in areas where excess fat is stored and water is retained – mainly the hips buttocks, thighs and stomach.

The new generation of cellulite creams no longer claim to melt away fat. They do, however, promise to firm and tone skin, drain away excess fluid and act as an anti-ageing treatment.

oy advice when trying any anti-cellulite products is to try a combination approach. An exercise plan and healthy eating will also go a long way to reducing the appearance of cellulite. Eat plenty of fresh foods. Potassium-rich foods such as bananas, kiwi fruit, nectarines, oranges, papayas, grapefruit and watermelon will help. Broccoli, cucumber, tomato and baked potato are also good.

Try to:

  • Cut down on dairy products.

  • Drink plenty of water.

  • Exercise at least four times a week. 

  • oassage skin regularly with cellulite-fighting body cream.
