2 common skin problems; cellulite and stretch mark home remedies.

Problem number one is cellulite.

 

Ninety per cent of women experience cellulite one way or the other in their life, I myself is not left out. Let me make this clear, cellulite has nothing to do with age, it can show up at young age and it doesn’t only happen to overweight people, skinny women can have cellulite as well.

And it is true cellulite can worsen with age, because after the age of 30, we begin to lose about 5% of muscle mass per decade and increase in body fat.

This is especially noticeable in people who are inactive, especially people that smoke, cigarette smoke contains a toxic mix of chemicals that can disrupt the body’s ability to produce collagen, making the skin less elastic and prompt the underlying fat to show through.

Here are few natural ways to reduce cellulite.

Method number one is dry brushing;- dry brushing technique is a very traditional technique to improve circulation, remove toxins from the body and in return reduce the appearance of cellulite.

First thing is to buy yourself a body brush made with natural fibre, it is better to get a brush with a long handle to make sure you can reach every part of your body.

And because dry brushing also re-energises and stimulates the body. You should make this part of your morning routine, dry brushing your body for five minutes before shower. How to do this? gently brush upwards by starting at your feet and work up towards your heart, bringing the circulation up to the body.

While doing this, we should focus on areas with more cellulite and always remember to brush from the left to the right side of the body. Once you have done the lower part of the body, then move on to the midsection, brush your stomach in a clockwise motion to ensure good digestion and of course not forgetting the lower back, especially the love handle areas.

Method number two coffee scrub.

Coffee scrub is another proven natural way to reduce the appearance of cellulite, coffee scrub can improve circulation, remove dead cells, regenerate new healthy cells and make your skin more firm, tight, soft and hydrated.

So to make your own coffee scrubs, you will need 1/4 cup of grounded coffee, three tablespoons of sugar and two tablespoons of melted coconut oil. Mix them together in a jar to form a paste, start by wetting your entire body then apply the mixture onto your skin and massage in a circular motion, focusing on the cellulite area.

Rinse it off and have a warm water shower, follow this remedy 3-4 times a week until you have seen results.

The last method is omega -3.

Omega-3 is your secret to beautiful and youthful skin. It helps preserve collagen, muscle mass and skin elasticity through its anti-inflammatory properties. So add foods that are rich in omega-3 to your plates, such as salmon, flax seeds, chia seeds, avocado, walnuts, spinach and edamame or for convenience take a fish oil pill on daily basis.

It has been proven that adults who take omega-3 fatty acids supplement on daily basis slow down the decline in muscle mass.

Problem two is the stretch mark.

Stretch marks happen when your skin changes shape rapidly due to growth, weight loss or weight gain. They are not a sign that anything is wrong with your health, some of us can’t just wait to get rid of them cause some look unattractive.

Both men and women can get stretch marks, pregnancy and puberty are the two common times in life to get stretch marks, in some cases, people get stretch marks after using some harsh products on their skin.

At first, a stretch mark will appear as a thin red or purple line on your skin that takes on a different texture than the surrounding skin layer. Eventually, most stretch marks fade and take on a lighter or almost translucent colouring and become shiny.

 

Getting rid of stretch marks in a completely natural way isn’t likely for the deep and wide ones, they are the type of scarring that rarely fades enough to become invisible.

However, there are some remedies that can help minimize the appearance of stretch marks and help them to fade more quickly.

Since stretch marks are scarring from skin damage, the key ingredient in this recipe which is coconut oil will help heal the appearance quickly.

Though there are many stretch marks creams in the market, today on this topic, I will talk about just 3 effective ingredients that work magic. If you follow the steps carefully you will see great results in no time.

The three ingredients are;

  • coconut oil
  • vitamin E capsules
  • brush

Coconut oil;- why did I choose coconut oil instead of any other oil? Because the fat layer on our skin is the same as found in coconut oil, that is why it is easy for coconut oil to penetrates and absorbed much better on our skin.

Vitamin e capsules;- vitamin e is a good choice when it comes to healing and repairing skin damage, it is very beneficial to our skin.

Brush;- this is for the massage.

How to achieve this? First, clean the stretch marks area and make sure it is completely dry, then apply the coconut oil, followed by the vitamin e oil, then use the hairbrush or comb to massage the area in a circular motion. This will increase the blood circulation in this area and in return heals and repair the damaged skin.

Make sure to repeat this every day until you get your desire results, I guarantee you will see great results in no time.
