Strengthen blood vessels/ boost circulation. This is a key step in reducing cellulite, as blood vessels are the pathways by which nutrients important for healthy skin reach the dermis (the layer of skin which is damaged, causing cellulite). Strengthening blood vessels and increasing blood flow helps to nourish skin cells and help remove toxins.
Promote the production of collagen, elastin and healthy connective tissue. The reason collagen is so important is because healthy, youthful looking skin depends upon it. Collagen found within connective tissue is the main structural protein of the skin and when it becomes damaged, it’s not pretty. Firm, strong and healthy collagen provides structural support. It prevents fat cells from breaking through the lower layer of skin (where it belongs) and reaching the top layer of the skin where they cause the skin to become lumpy and uneven.
Hydrate and lock water into cells. Hydrated cells are strong and firm, and act as barrier stopping fat cells from pushing to the top of the skin where they become visible and cause dimpling associated with cellulite.
Prevent and repair free-radical damage, which can damage skin, predisposing it to cellulite.
Decrease inflammation, which if prolonged (chronic) can cause free-radical damage and cell membrane deterioration, increasing the likelihood of cellulite.
Rebuild cell membranes. Stronger cells membranes means your cells are better able to keep water in and remain hydrated.
