Warm weather is here! The days are longer, the sun is shining, and it’s realy heating up out there! You know what that means: BATHING SUIT SEASON! For most women, this time of year brings a bit of anxiety at the thought of getting into that bathing suit. The good news is that PRIORI® Skincare and Body Treatments can help get you bikini ready and looking your best this summer. So put on that cute little suit and follow these tips for cellulite prevention!
Cellulite affects 80-90% women, even supermodels! Cellulite is caused by a combination of both internal and external factors. Internal factors of cellulite are weakened vessels, excess fluid, toxins, over-inflated fat cells and slow metabolism. External factors of cellulite are poor diet, poor sleep habits, external oxidative stress and sedentary lifestyle.
Monitoring your diet and increasing daily activity through exercise, can help prevent cellulite from forming and improve the look of your body overall. Add clinically proven CoffeeBerry® Body Shaping Complex to your daily skincare regimen, which is designed to help smooth the appearance of cellulite. Clinical studies show that in 8 weeks, when used twice daily, Body Shaping Complex results ranged from -0.25 reduction to an -1.25 with an overall average reduction of 0.55”. With PRIORI®’s current “Slim & Smooth Body Kit” promotion, now is a perfect time to try Body Shaping Complex! The kit includes it, along with CoffeeBerry® Body Emulsion, with special savings for a limited time! Contact a US PRIORI® partner near you for this kit that will help you get bikini ready even faster.
Diet: We have all heard time and time again that “you are what you eat.” Good nutrition not only helps you feel good, it helps you look good too. To reduce the appearance of cellulite, there is no need to banish carbohydrates or start a fad diet. There are no miracle foods or magic diets that can make cellulite vanish. The best way to prevent cellulite is to:
- Eat lots of vegetables and fruits.
- Pick whole grains instead of refined.
- Choose lean proteins.
- Avoid overindulging in alcohol and caffeine (both can affect your metabolism and cortisol levels, causing your body to hang on to fat).
- Supplement with antioxidants! Cells have a tight membrane protecting the components of the cell, just like a “moat” around a castle protects from the enemy! Cellular aging is caused by free radicals and oxidative stress. Cellular functions keep good things in (lipids, water, nutrients), and bad things out (inflammation and free radicals)
Exercise: Get MOVING! Start a workout routine that focuses equally on cardio, strength training and flexibility. The look of cellulite will be improved by burning overall body fat and increasing muscle tone. Exercise also releases “feel-good” endorphins, boosting your mood and increasing your self-confidence!
Spa Treatments: Treat yourself to PRIORI®’s Naturally Slimming Body Treatment, a targeted, naturally slimming treatment for the hips, abdomen, thighs and other problem areas. This treatment helps to firm the skin, reduce inches and minimize the appearance of cellulite. When combined with prescribed home care and smart lifestyle choices, you’ll see revitalized and remodeled skin with a smoother texture. Treatments are most effective when done in a series of six treatments and will deliver serious results in just three weeks.
Get Glowing: A little color can make cellulite lumps and bumps less noticeable. If you will be getting a faux tan this summer, get your skin prepped and baby soft with Advanced AHA Invigorating Face & Body Scrub. You can incorporate a body brush with the scrub in the shower and perform a circulatory massage on hips, thighs and abs to increase circulation to these areas prone to cellulite.
