The Easiest Way to Reduce Cellulite for the Summer

It’s Officially British Summer Time!

Here it is Summer Time! and what doe’s it call for! shorts, skimpy skirts, swimsuits and bikini’s and if you’re anything like me we all know how dreadful it can be when we look down and all you see is dimple, dimples and more dimples! I found the easiest way to reduce cellulite permanently is by using my Derma Roller.

What is Cellulite?

Cellulite is something many of us may suffer from through weight gain in their life.  Cellulite is an unevenness of the layer of fat beneath the skin, underlying fat deposits begin to push through the layers of collagen fibres and connective tissue under the skin (often in the buttock, stomach & thigh area) so unless you are a man or a female body builder there’s no getting away from it!

Temporary & Permanent Solutions to get rid of Cellulite

Dry Body Brushing:  Is one of the oldest methods to get rid of cellulite quickly.  It helps smooth the dimply areas of the body, thighs in particular by reducing water retention.  It can also help with lymphatic drainage and shift those fat deposits if used regularly.  See my post on Guide to Dry Brushing here!

Firming Body Lotions: Look for an iridescent finish that will reflect the light off your problem areas.  If you don’t want to invest in expensive firming creams you can create your own by using your regular firming cream and adding highlighter or illuminator to it, preferably liquid!

Opting for Fake Tan: When look for fake tan lotions or mousse, go for the caramel or olive toned as they will compliment your skin tone better than the orange ones, who wants to look like oompa loompa! My recommendation is Skinny Tan, it smells absolutely gorgeous and you can build it up gradually, plus they have every thing you need on their site.

Derma Roller:  A Derma Roller Kit is what you should invest in.  It is a roller with microneedles that will bring collagen back up to the surface of the skin.

Regular use (twice a week) will thicken the skin that will make it harder for fat to protrude resulting in a less ‘orange peeled’ effect.  If you are going to invest in a firming lotion then the Derma Roller will improve the absorption by 400%

Natural bigger lips in under a minute. 

Natural Bigger Lips

GUEST POST – By Sarah Scotford

Want bigger lips naturally? Get yourself a dermaroller.
MAKE SURE you use 0.5mm for best results, anything larger can be damaging.

And ALWAYS ALWAYS sanitize your needles before and after use. Using needles without sanitizing can lead to infections!

First apply a serum. I like to use straight up Hyaluronic Acid. It’s a gel like water holding molecule that is the space filler & cushioning agent found in all mammals joints and skin. It improves hydration in the skin and stimulates the production of collagen.

Stretch your lips so that the needles get right in there. Roll vertically, horizontally and diagonally until you’ve rolled all over.

Results won’t happen overnight.. Be patient and do them twice a month or before a big night out.

Microneedling creates tiny “injuries” in your skin thus creating your natural defences to waken up and create more collagen. Creating pillowy plump lips

Treatment

It looks daunting doesn’t it? like some sort of medieval torture weapon! I suppose the last thing you would think about in your skincare regime is running tiny needles over your face!  With my love of Ancient Therapies did you know that ‘micro-needling’ has been used in China for centuries, not only did use they for beautiful skin but they also believed that it had a positive effect of the Qi (Chi) life energy of that person. While Western Medicine is finally catching up, Chinese Medicine has known this for centuries: that micro subcutaneous injuries to the Epidermis (most outer layer of the skin) stimulates new collagen growth and renew skin cells to produce smoother, healthier skin, it has now been scientifically proven, though it doesn’t account for the Qi .. give it time though!
