It's normal for cellulite to start bothering us as soon as the weather gets warmer and we need to wear dresses and shorts. But today the conversation goes a little beyond the aesthetic part - it's that cellulite, like so many other things we see on the outside, can be a sign that something on the inside is not 100% right.
Have you heard of the fascia? This connective tissue present throughout our body, mainly made up of collagenconnects bones, muscles, tendons and ligaments. It protects our organs and muscle groups and enables us to do the simplest functionssuch as walking, sitting, standing...
What does fascia have to do with cellulite? Cellulite happens when the fascial tissues create small pockets of fat. Think about how an ironed shirt looks at the end of the day. The smooth, even fabric becomes uneven and no longer cohesive. This is what happens inside us. The causes can be several: spending too much time walking or sitting, making repetitive movements daily, having poor postural habits, insufficient hydration, or simply advancing age.
All this to explain that cellulite is not the problem itself, or the aesthetic discomfort that makes you feel it, but rather that we should interpret it as a signal from our body to improve our circulation and lymphatic drainage. Remember that cellulite is an inflammation of the cells, and we should interpret it as any other sign of inflammation, such as swelling, intestinal skin problems. This is the only way to keep the tissues healthy, which will translate into more radiant, glowing, and regular skin.
So what can I do at home?
Brush your body
A body brush is one of the best allies to stimulate lymphatic drainage, boosting the release of toxins and preventing tissue stagnation. It is a fundamental routine for healthy skin and to avoid inflammatory processes. You can use it before or after bathing, on dry skin and, you know, always with upward movements and toward the center of the body.
Massage with Gua Sha Body & Firm Oil
If you have tried Gua Sha facials, then you know what we mean when we say that this Traditional Chinese Medicine technique radically changes the appearance of your skin. Regular massages with the Gua Sha Bodyin synergy with Firme oiloil, with its slimming properties, completely changes the structure of our skin. It stimulates moisture absorption, improves skin texture and prevents irregularities, stimulates lymphatic flow and releases accumulated tension. All this is essential for our fascia to stay healthy.
