Necessary and life-saving as it was, the lockdwon has not been kind to our figures. For most of us being stuck indoors all day simply meant more snacking and less exercise.Luckily the weather is now improving and the lockdown is being gradually lifted, which means we can nourish our bodies and minds with more sunshine and exercise out in the open.To help you get into shape faster, skin tightening and cellulite specialist Georgios Tzenichristos of LipoTherapeia shares his tips on how to improve your figure naturally, based on his 19-year experience.
Lose The Sugar
Yesterday. Sugar is the number one cause of cellulite today.
Interval training boosts metabolism and stimulates circulation and skin firming more than any other form of exercise.
Start Vegetable Juicing
And have berry fruit smoothies – to get the ultimate anti-cellulite nutrients
Forget About It
Dry brushing and coffee scrubbing only scratch the surface.
Have seriously wholesome anti-cellulite meals, such as non-farmed salmon, seaweed salad, green tea and black rice
Quit While You’re Ahead
Quit smoking, one of the major causes of cellulite
Process of Elimination
Eliminate hydrogenated/fried fats and oils from your life. They short-circuit your metabolism and cause ageing, inflammation, free radical damage and, of course, fat accumulation.
Have lots of water, still or sparkling (contrary to popular belief sparkling water does not cause cellulite).
Learn to love decaf (coffee, tea, green tea) and cocoa. Polyphenols in these foods are highly effective against cellulite.
Detoxify Your Life
From plastics and BPA. Endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDC) / xenoestrogens, are a major risk factor for cellulite.
Polyphenols and carotenoids, the most important anti-cellulite nutrients (both found in fruit and veg).
Get Hot and Cold
Introduce daily contrast (hot and cold) showers on your legs, the easiest and best circulation and metabolism booster.
For faster results after the lockdown ends, you can have a course of deep tissue radiofrequency treatments or strong cellulite-specific massages, Georgios’ recommended treatments (treatments are not available until July 4).
