The prerequisite for smooth and firm skin on the buttocks and thighs is healthy, firm connective tissue. The network-like connective tissue consists of collagen and elastin fibers and functions as a support corset. The areas between the individual net meshes can form deposits, for example, due to fatty tissue, lack of nutrients, or disturbances in the lymph flow. In addition to the individual predisposition and lifestyle, hormones (especially estrogen) can also influence whether and to what extent cellulite and orange peel are formed. In addition, collagen production declines in the course of the natural aging process. The fiber strands of the connective tissue lose their elasticity and slacken, which in turn affects the firmness of the entire complexion. Endurance sports and targeted body styling as well as the right diet can effectively counteract cellulite.
First things first: If you want a rosy, firm complexion (whether on your face or body), you must ensure that the tissue is adequately hydrated. Specifically, this means: drink enough. About two liters a day are ideal, preferably water or unsweetened herbal or green tea.
A second basic rule is a balanced, vitamin-rich diet that is low in salt, fat, and sugar. Carbohydrates, especially white flour and farinaceous foods, should also be reduced significantly if cellulite is to be reduced in a few weeks.
A mix of different anti-cellulite foods is ideal so that the connective tissue is optimally supplied with those nutrients that are necessary for building up the fibers. These include, above all, foods that have been shown to stimulate (fat) metabolism and lymph flow and ensure a clean and firm complexion - above all, these include low-sugar fruits and vegetables that are rich in vitamins and minerals or have a dehydrating effect, such as grapefruit, Broccoli and asparagus.
Vitamin C in particular plays an important role in the fight against cellulite, as it has a positive effect on lipid metabolism, effectively stimulates collagen production, and is also a highly effective antioxidant (i.e. an anti-aging weapon). Oranges, grapefruit, kiwi, berries, and peppers as well as so-called superfoods such as ginger, cranberries, or dragon fruit are among the most reliable vitamin C suppliers. Grapefruits, kiwis, and some types of berries also contain digestive enzymes and/or are rich in indigestible pectin, which swells in the stomach and (like the bitter substances in acid) acts as a natural appetite suppressant so that you feel fewer cravings.
The ideal start to the day (in addition to fruit salads and smoothies made from freshly cut, sour fruits) is a bowl or an oatmeal-based on wholesome oat flakes. In addition to protein and fiber, the delicate flakes provide important trace elements such as zinc, iron, potassium, and magnesium. They are also rich in vitamins B and E and keep you full for a long time. Tip: Boil oat flakes as a classic porridge with water to a smooth pulp and garnish with fresh berries. Stimulates digestion, tastes delicious, and smooths out the cellulite as if from the inside out.
If you want to see the results of the anti-cellulite method as quickly as possible, you should do sports regularly (endurance sports at least two to three times a week, figure-shaping gymnastics, preferably daily!) And also use special skincare products that remove the annoying dents with caffeine, extracts of green Counteract tea, and a lot of moisture from the outside. By the way: Vitamin C, minerals, and collagen are also available as highly concentrated supplements.
