A healthy lifestyle should be always the first option when looking for ways to stay healthy. Saying that only fat people have cellulite would be a lie, but it is true that a lot of it can be prevented and attenuated with less carbs, salt and fat, and more exercise. This is because by taking care of your body, your skin will stay elastic and your blood flow will increase.
Here we will talk about some delicious food you should add to your life if you want to keep your skin from dimpling.
First, you need to stay hydrated. You might be tired of hearing that you should drink at least 8 glasses of water a day, but doing this will help you stay healthy in a lot of ways, including staying cellulite-free.
Being hydrated helps plump the skin, attenuating dimples. If you are not a fan of drinking water, try eating fresh fruits and vegetables with higher water content, like melons or cucumbers.
After you wake up, add flaxseed to your breakfast. It supports oestrogen levels and collagen growth, so eat them by themselves or sprinkle a few tablespoons on cereal, yogurt or oatmeal.
For lunch, go with tomato paste. Studies have shown that lycopene, an antioxidant found in tomatoes, helps reduce sun damage. This preserves collagen in your skin and keeps your skin healthy and thick. However, we say tomato paste and not fresh tomatoes because the latter contains higher doses of lycopene than the fruit. Plus, it is delicious with almost everything! Try pouring it on top of some roasted veggies and enjoy.
After these meals, sit back and relax with a cup of tea. Green and white teas contain molecules called catechins. These decrease fat cell insulin resistance. Insulin and cortisol are hormones that rise with stress and affect the way fat cells work.
Something as easy as this will help your skin stay smooth, so why not try it and stay healthy?
