How to treat cellulite

What Causes Cellulite?
In the past decade, there has been extensive research to clarify the possible causes of cellulite, and many agree on the following points:
-fat cells swell due to fat storage
-capillary walls become excessively permeable causing localized accumulation of fluid
-inadequate lymphatic drainage slows the removal of excess fluid
-fat cells cluster and are bound by collagen fibers
-connective tissue strands stiffen, pulling down on their anchor points
-the changes in blood flow, lymphatic drainage, fat, and connective tissue result in cellulite-a bumpy or dimpled appearance on the skin

How to treat cellulite
Unfortunately, there is no cure for cellulite, but you can take measures to improve its (and your) appearance.

Prep/Cleanse
Our newest addition to the fatgirl-family is fatgirlscrub, a skin-smoothing, circulation-stimuating body exfoliator for less-than-perfect parts. Formulated with:
Himalayan pink salt that exfoliates for a smoother skin surface and helps re-mineralize skin, balance skin moisture levels, improve circulation to improve skin repair vitality, enhance penetration of cellulite treatments and detoxify skin surface.

Red Algae: clinically demonstrated to increase circulation to enhance skin repair functions and help diminish the appearance of excess fluid retention

Grapefruit Extract: provides antioxdant protection and refreshes the skin

Peppermint Extract: refreshes,invigorates and cools skin surface

Treat
We make the best cellulite creams! Our cellulite creams target the main causes of cellultie. FatGirlSlim targets cellulite with encapsulated caffeine to diminish the water retention that makes cellulite look even worse and fatgirlsleep tagets cellulite with lavender and sacred lotus flower extract which helps you snooze while you lose!

Camouflage
Everything looks better with a tan, but harmful UV rays? I don’t think so! My best cellulite secret – self tanner!! Spray the ultra-fine mist of my favorite self tanner, A Tan For All Seasons (not smelly, not streaky, not orange, dries fast – amazing – yes, I just sang that last word!) from waist to ankles for a toasty bronze, yet natural, goddess glow. Watch all those flaws that reveal themselves on doughy fluorescent winter white skin blur and disappear with a touch of tan!

Bliss Kisses!

About karenglidden

My name is Karen Glidden and I’m the web content coordinator for Bliss. I will be the primary author of Bliss n Tell. For all your beautification needs, please refer to blissworld.com My background is not beauty related at all. I graduated from Boston University and worked at Starbucks for many years climbing their corporate ladder. Pre-Bliss, my idea of a milky cleanser was the residue left on my face after making cappuccinos all day. I’ve been with Bliss since October 2007 and have been converted into a product worshipper. I’m the MacGyver of skincare. I love inventing new uses to beauty products. You’ll find me putting toner on my legs to help with dry skin, wearing my glamour gloves on the subway to smooth my hands, and using skincare in my hair to tame flyaways. Oh, did I mention that I’m totally frugal. Yes, this little Bliss girl is a ‘recessionista’ for sure (hey, I still have student loans to pay off!) My skin type is normal. I’m not particularly breakout prone unless it’s stress related or hormonal. I’m not too oily, but sometimes dry all over depending on the weather. I’ve got an even skin tone and not too many fine lines, wrinkles, or hyperpigmentation. I have some sun damage from years of sun-worshipping sans SPF, my greatest skincare regret in life. My biggest skin concern are fine lines/wrinkles around my eyes and laugh lines around my mouth. Oh, and some uh….cellulite on my bum/thighs. Yes, I am human (you can stop pointing and laughing now, thanks!). My Favorite Bliss Product: I can’t choose just one. It’s a tie between Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask and A Tan For All Seasons Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask is my five minute beauty fix for just about everything (breakouts, dull/tired skin, dryness). A Tan For All Seasons is my best friend. It’s a stink-free tan in a can. I cannot live without a sun-kissed glow all year (without the UV damage, of course!)
