It is well known, worldwide, that cellulite is the most powerful enemy that all the aged women are always fighting with. With aging, we are facing many skin, hair and health problems that might seem to be really hard to get rid of. Even if it is, for sure, normally to get frustrated and disturbed by these natural problems that are coming along with aging, you should not go ahead and run through all the cosmetic stores and pharmacies to spend a lot of money on expensive products.
What is cellulite?
For a better understanding of what cellulite is exactly, let’s start this explanation with a review of skin’s anatomy.
The outer layer of the skin is called epidemis. Just below it, there is the dermis, which is rich in hair follicles, sweat glands, blood vessels, connective tissues and nervous receptors. The next layer of tissue is the first from the three subcutaneous layers (which means under the skin – fat). This is where our discussion will focus acutely in the description of the cellulite. The topmost subcutaneous layer has been described as a ‘chamber of fat cells’ separated by the connective tissue. From this room with fat cells, small projections of fat cells are appearing in the dermis. The degree of unevenness and irregularities of the subcutaneous fat, gives to the skin the ‘injured’ aspect, called cellulite.
Cellulite is kind of uncommon to men (obese and non-obese), because the epidermis, the dermis and an upper part of the subcutaneous tissue are different at men. Men have in the epidermis and in the dermis tissue, thicker layers of tissue in the thighs and buttocks. The subcutaneous structure differences of fat cells between women and men occur during the third trimester of fetal development and it is manifesting at birth. The variations in hormones between the sexes, largely explains this skin structure deviation. It has been shown that men who were born with the deficiency of male hormones will often look similar to subcutaneous fat of the women’s.
How can you get rid of cellulite with a homemade remedy?
Here you could learn how to prepare a 100% natural recipe in order to get rid of cellulite, at home:
All you need is coffee and honey. Mix 1/2 cup ground coffee and a few tablespoons of honey. After you mixed all the ingredients together, rub with the resulting paste on the areas with problems, in circular motions, for about 30 seconds, 1 minute and then just rinse off. Caffeine improves the circulation and will visible reduce cellulite if you will keep use this recipe, for as long as needed.
Why can those specific ingredients help you?
-Coffee: this ingredient is accomplishing, better than any other, to stimulate the cell’s regeneration and to activate the blood circulation, while having a toning role, as well. The result? The skin remains supple, while fats are burned. -Honey: Nectar itself is composed mainly of sucrose and water. Bees add enzymes that create additional chemical compounds, inverting the sucrose into fructose and glucose, and then evaporate the water so that the resulting product will resist spoiling. Hence, honey is a source of carbohydrates, containing
– 80% natural sugar — mostly fructose and glucose. Due to the high level of fructose, honey is sweeter than table sugar.
-18% water. The less water content the honey has, the better the quality of honey.
-2% minerals, vitamins, pollen and protein.
The vitamins present in honey are B6, thiamin, niacin, riboflavin, pantothenic acid and certain amino acids. The minerals found in honey include calcium, copper, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, potassium, sodium and zinc. I learnt that “conductivity” is an indirect way of measuring the mineral content of a honey. Manuka honey has a higher than normal conductivity – about 4 times that of normal flower honeys. The higher the conductivity, the better the value of the honey.
