Getting Rid of Cellulite

Posted September 16, 2019 in Cellulite

Even though cellulite is normal and affects between 80 and 90 percent of women, many are still uneasy and displeased by its appearance.

Cellulite commonly develops on the legs (especially the thighs), buttocks, abdomen, or hips, and contributes to a bumpy and dimpled skin appearance. This is purely a cosmetic concern, as cellulite is not dangerous or painful.

Many women attempt at-home remedies for cellulite reduction like coffee scrubs, dry brushing, seaweed wraps, apple cider vinegar, and massages, but many of them also discover that these remedies do not provide significant or lasting results.

What Causes Cellulite?

While cellulite may be a response to excess weight, unwanted orange peel skin can also develop on a body with no excess fat.

Cellulite is caused when expanding fat cells cross through and become trapped in the fibrous tissues beneath the skin.

Cellulite is more common in women because women’s connective tissue runs parallel to the fat cells whereas men’s runs perpendicular, making it more difficult for the fat cells to pass through the membrane.

This unwanted skin condition may be worsened due to:

  • Genetics
  • Hormonal changes
  • Weight gain or weight loss
  • Sedentary lifestyles
  • Smoking
  • Poor diet
  • Age

There is no way to prevent cellulite, and while some exercises like squats are thought to reduce the appearance of cellulite, they are not guaranteed options.

Body Strategist Bagni Di Pisa Treatment

The Spa at Spring Ridge offers the Body Strategist Bagni Di Pisa cellulite treatment to detoxify the tissue and stimulate anti-cellulite actions.

Bagni Di Pisa is appropriate for all levels of cellulite, even severe cellulite.

This treatment applies a thermal mud created from the Bagni Di Pisa region of Italy to the cellulite-afflicted areas.

Thermal water has long been used for therapeutic purposes, including the reduction of cellulite. It is combined with fucus, luminaria (brown algae), powdered green tea, and essential oils like lemon, orange, and peppermint to make a therapeutic mud.

When Bagni Di Pisa mud is rubbed onto the skin, the ingredients work together to remove excess toxins, encourage the removal of fat, and loosen the fat cells that are trapped beneath the surface.

What Is Thermal Water?

Thermal water is mineral water that is taken from deep within the ground. Since this water is naturally processed, it is rich in mineral salt, iodine, carbon dioxide, calcium, magnesium, and sulfate.

These elements contain antioxidant properties and purifying effects and are free from bacteria and pollution. The benefits of thermal water and thermal spas are seen among all areas of skincare.
