Tonight on TodayTonight they talked about a new treatment that promises to combat cellulite.
New age cellulite treatment
Despite the dozens of creams, lotions and treatments developed to combat it, cellulite still troubles the majority of Australian women.
The latest cellulite treatment to hit Australia may seem a little extreme, but those who’ve tried it say they are happy with the results.
The treatment is based similar to a lipo procedure
The TV Show gave me the impression that Cosmos Cosmetic Medicine was promoting their new technology but they also had other guests that mentioned that there is no cosmetic treatment that could completely cure cellulite.
I have gotten results with exercise and I observe how women that exercise regularly don’t have much cellulite.
What I found after doing my research is that the real exercise secret to reduce cellulite lies in one magic move: the lunge. Self Magazine explains.
How it works: The lunge is one of your best weapons against cellulite, because it builds lean muscle in your butt and thighs, two cellulite-prone zones. Think of your leg as a legal pad: The paper is your fat, and the cardboard back is your muscle, says Wayne Westcott, Ph.D., coauthor of No More Cellulite and research director at Quincy College in Massachusetts. If the cardboard is flimsy or missing altogether, the paper flops about, bulging inward and outward (as cellulite does); but if the cardboard is sturdy, the paper stays smooth.
To maximize the lunge’s dimple-diminishing capabilities, watch your form: Never let your knees creep past your toes, and be sure to press the heel of your front foot into the floor and squeeze your glutes throughout, says Liz DiAlto, a fitness coach in New York City. Her routine: Do three sets of 12 to 20 reps of lunges on each leg, three or four times a week. In as little as one month, you’ll see improvement.
Drinking lots of water also helps!
Water is a bloat buster that flushes away excess salt. But according to Howard Murad, M.D., a dermatologist and author of The Cellulite Solution, eating water-rich foods is a more potent way to diminish dimples. His top pick? Watermelon! It’s about 90 percent water, he says, and because it has only 46 calories per cup, you can gobble it down without worrying about weight gain. What’s more, like plums, mangoes or just about every other aguafilled fruit, it offers vitamins A and C, two essential antioxidants that help maintain skin’s thickness.
By fighting off free radicals, which are damaging molecules generated by exposure to sunlight and air pollution, these antioxidants prevent the breakdown of collagen, skin’s support structure, and preserve elastin stores. (They act like skin’s natural fillers.) When the dermis of the skin is thicker, it conceals lumps better.
Munch away: Enjoy watermelon off the rind, slice it into salads, or freeze it into chunks. One cup equals about 3/5 cup water. Aim for about 8 1/2 cups of water per day.
