Let’s talk about those little bumps on our skin that we could all wish away.. Some people are more prone to cellulites than others (🙋 who is with me on this one?), we can only blame genetics for that…
I’ve learnt to not obsess over it and I’ve learnt to accept that it’s alright to have them. It’s funny how when you’re not intentional about something, everything just falls into place. And that’s my story with them cellulites.
I noticed the change and the reduction when I started adopting these habits. The sole purpose of incorporating them into my lifestyle was to take better care of my body and my health; cellulites reducing was just the cherry on top. I enjoy many other benefits from these habits that are far more important than that.
Habit #1: Eat Real Food
No joke, but as I started eating whole food and less processed food many years back, I’ve seen a tremendous change in my skin and those dimples. One thing I’ve learnt over the years when it comes to anything is, there’s never a shortcut worth taking. I’ve gone down that path of shortcuts one too many times and this is what I’ve learnt 👇
“Shortcuts may work, but the results are never here to stay”
And don’t we all already know this: the beauty is always in its journey, not the outcome.
I’ve touched a little about eating “real food” or whole food in my previous write up here. I thought today I’ll get into it a little more. Many get confused with the word “whole food”. It just means food that is not processed and in its original form. They are mostly not in a packet. Anything you see in the “FRESH” section of the supermarket is the whole food.
“Whole food = The food itself is the ingredient, and the ingredient itself is the food.”
Eg: sweet potato, orange, pink Himalayan salt, salmon, etc. No adulteration of any kind on them!
You can enjoy delicious meals just by using whole food or food that has only whole food in its ingredient list (yes, check those ingredient lists people!). For those of you who aren’t used to cooking, it is definitely not a daunting task, don’t sweat it. Here are some of my favourite recipes that you can try if you have no idea where to begin…
Habit #2: Dry Brushing
This habit is a little more current to me, but oh boy do I see the difference! You know when they say dry brushing is for detoxification? Whoever they are, they got it right… When I explored wellness a little more last year (yep, I did all that homemade scrub, homemade mask, and even DIY facial steam!), that’s when I got onto the whole “Dry Brushing” wagon. These are some of the health benefits I found when I looked it up:
👉 Clean pores and minimize pores
👉 Get rid of dead skin cells (exfoliation)
👉 Lymphatic support (detoxifies!)
👉 Energy Boost
I mean, how can anyone resist that? 😅
I started doing it daily before a shower and the reduction of cellulite happen pretty quickly with this one. Check out how to dry brush effectively and go try it out y’all, you can thank me later 😆
Tip: Always lather up with moisturizer after a shower if you’re dry brushing to keep skin moist and smooth.
There you go, the 2 habits I’ve adopted that has helped in reducing my cellulite over time. I hope they will help you with yours too. But remember, don’t obsess over it. Take care of your health first, and everything else will fall into place. Cellulite or not, you’re just the way you should be, nothing more and nothing less. #perfectimperfections #loveyourdimples 😉
Have a good week ahead! As always, remember to love, share, encourage, listen and give 😘
Lots of love, Erina
