How to fight cellulite

Cellulite is due to excessive development of adipocytes (fat cells) stored under the skin tissue, which deforms it, the skin taking an "orange peel" appearance. Cellulite almost exclusively concerns women, and the vast majority of them. There is no magic formula to get rid of cellulite definitively, but we still manage to alleviate it. To do this, you have to strengthen your musculature a little, especially in terms of legs, which makes it possible to correct the skin of orange somewhat. The ideal is to do so with endurance sports, which allow, in addition to muscle strengthening, to burn some fats if they are practiced beyond 45 minutes. Bike, Nordic walking, swimming, aquagym are well suited. To treat it, we use diuretic, draining, depurative, circulatory or lipolytic plants (“burnt-burning”). The juniper, by its diuretic actions, detoxifying and depurative, is completely suitable and very frequently used in anti -hululitis care. It is often associated with more circulatory plants such as cypress, immortelle (Helichrysus) or peppermint as well as officinal sage for its lipolytic properties.

** Internal cure ** In parallel of muscle strengthening, perform an internet cure of juniper hydrosol, at the rate of a tablespoon 3 times a day, diluted in a glass of water

** Massage ** Make a massage session of "unsightly" areas in the evening, to promote the elimination of toxins and blood circulation and thus reduce cellulite. To do this, I prepare an emulsion in a 100 ml bottle, mixing 30 ml of calophyll (draining) vegetable oil and 30 ml of juniper hydrosol. Shake the bottle to emulsify the phases, aqueous and fatty, and I use this preparation in "palpate-roll" massage on the thighs, for about fifteen minutes.

The juniper is above all a “diuretic” plant. As a precaution, its oral use will therefore be not recommended in the event of renal insufficiency. On the other hand, friction with juniper hydrosol are safe to fight against orange skin and refine the silhouette.
