Do you want to know more about cellulite, aromatherapy and essential oils?
The one skin condition that most women can agree to dislike the most is cellulite. These unsightly lumps and bumps are generally located in the upper arms, thighs, hips, buttocks, inner knees and weight-bearing areas, giving an uneven and lumpy appearance. Cellulite is not necessarily related to obesity and very often appears on slim women. Cellulite is not just “fat”. When toxins and metabolic wastes are stored in connective tissue, a water retention “pouch” is created around the adipose cells to protect them against the toxins. The surrounding connective tissue is compressed and the cellular exchanges are disturbed, collagen and elastin fibres are damaged and the fibrous tissue hardens. More toxins mean more water retention, which means more compression, which in turn, means harder cellulite.
Each day we ingest/inhale toxins and chemicals from various sources – food preservatives and chemicals, polluted air, water etc. From the time we are born our body tries to maintain homeostasis or balance. If our ingestion of toxins and chemicals is greater than can be excreted each day our body stores these in the fatty tissues of the body and surround its with water to protect it from being excreted too quickly and overloading our body. The development of cellulite can also be attributed to the role of the female hormone system – birth control pills are responsible for the onset of cellulite in many women.
To begin combating cellulite, toxic wastes and impurities must be expelled from the body’s four major organs: kidneys, bowels, lungs and skin. Next, resistance and elasticity of the supportive connective tissue must be strengthened and the functioning of the body’s own natural drainage and circulation systems must be improved.
Aromatherapy combined with massage is a powerful tool to help prevent the accumulation of toxins and fluid build-up. The blood circulation is improved, the secretion is removed from the sebaceous and sweat glands, the subcutaneous adipose tissue and fat are removed, the metabolism is strengthened, i.e. the flow of nutrients in the tissues is speeded up, the oxidation of the tissues is improved and the lymph swelling disappears since the skin gets a stronger tone, becomes more elastic, looks healthier and has a younger look.
BE LITE for Cellulite & Fluid is an aromatherapy product that helps reduce fluid retention, assists with blood circulation as well as providing additional benefits such as stimulating digestion.
