What is cellulite?

Often referred to as orange-peel skin, cellulite occurs as a result of enlarged fatty tissue pressing against the upper layer or skin or the epidermis. The result is a cottage-cheese like effect as the surrounding skin puckers visibly, a nightmare scenario for aspiring escorts in London. Our bodies naturally have a layer of healthy fat below the skins surface which acts as connective tissue to join the skin to our muscles and bones. This subcutaneous layer is an essential part of our body and is part of our heat regulation system as well as providing protection. No matter how well toned your body is there will be a layer of fat within the skin.

Normal fat cells in this layer do not produce the effect of cellulite but when these cells become enlarged as a result of poor diet, nutritional deficiencies or when blood flow is constricted then these cells push against the upper skin layers producing the trademark orange-peel dimpling.

Cellulite tends to be more visible in those areas of our body with more underlying fatty tissue such as thighs, buttocks and the stomach.

Cellulite should not be confused with cellulitis which is a skin infection and should be treated by a GP (usually with antibiotics).
How to prevent cellulite

The primary way to combat the appearance of cellulite is to start from within. Eating a diet that is rich in lean protein and avoids unhealthy fats and sugar will help reduce the fat cells in your subcutaneous layer of skin. It should also be noted that smokers tend to suffer more with the appearance of cellulite as a result of the skins diminished elasticity. Regular cardio workouts and targeting exercises to tone those problem areas will all help to prevent the onset of cellulite, escorts based in London should consider joining a local gym or take up jogging outdoors.

Staying hydrated and boosting your metabolism are also excellent ways to combat this dreaded skin condition.

How to treat cellulite

But what if you already have cellulite and the changes in your diet and lifestyle aren’t improving the appearance of your skin? Well, there are some proven ways to help target those problem areas which may help.
Body Brushing

Using a dry body brush made with natural fibres you can perform a full body brush from your toes to your shoulders. The process of brushing the skin is thought to encourage a healthy circulation and improved blood flow which results in plumper looking skin. If your skin is more plump then the visibility of underlying cellulite should diminish. This can be done before taking a shower on a daily basis and should be done from the left hand side of your body to the right hand side, brushing towards the heart to aid circulation.
Exfoliating Scrub

A method favoured by many professional escorts, with similar purpose to the body brushing exercise an exfoliating scrub will invigorate your skin and leave it refreshed and more plump looking. You can try any number of products on the market place or mix your own scrub together using natural ingredients such as sugar or coffee grounds.
Juniper Oil Massage

Juniper oil can help reduce water retention and the process of massaging this in to the skin can help break down the build-up of other toxins within the skin.
Drink Green Tea

What could be simpler? But how does it help? Well, Green Tea which is easily obtainable from many London stores has natural but potent thermogenic properties meaning it burns fat. Reducing the fat content of your subcutaneous layer will improve the appearance of cellulite.
Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV)

Proven to help the body dispose of ‘brown’ fat ACV can help boost metabolism and aid with weight loss and toning. Simply drinking two tablespoons with warm water three times a day before meals can help.
