What is cellulite? Cellulite is buildups of fat underneath our skin that cause lumpy, dimpled appearance. 80% of women (and some men even) have cellulite; it is absolutely normal and harmless. It is not a medical condition and if you love your body the way it is, then you go girl.
However, for some, this dimpled appearance on thighs, abdomen and upper arms may result into low self-esteem.
Different Remedies Available in Market:
There are many products and cosmetic procedures available in the market that claim to reduce appearance of cellulite as getting rid of it completely is not possible (as for now). Some of these products are:
- Masks: you have to apply these masks on affected area for a certain duration. Most of these masks recommend leaving them on for 30-40 minutes
- Scrubs: you have to scrub the affected areas with the product for 40 to 60 minutes. It is physically impossible to do it yourself and people mostly end up going to a spa.
- Massage creams: you have to massage these creams into skin for 20-30 minutes. Some you even have to leave on over a night.
- Wraps: you apply the product, wrap it in a cloth (or some products suggest using kitchen foil), and wait for 1 hour.
All these products do work up to some extent, but compared to the amount of effort you put in, those results are very mild. No one has time to massage or scrub for hours, and if you have cellulite on your butt then this whole massage situation can be very tiring and uncomfortable. Most people end up getting professional spa treatments for the massages, wraps and scrubs and one appointment can cost you around $150 to $300 depending on the quality of the spa.
The best solution available in market is cosmetic laser. Again, this doesn’t work like magic spell either, you have to take multiple sessions before you can see some results. Laser is effective, true, but not everyone can afford it. One session may cost you up to $500 and you may require anywhere from 4 to 15 sessions depending on the severity of cellulite.
An affordable yet effective solution:
Probably the most affordable and effective solution for cellulite is soaking salts and bath bombs. These products work like a charm and you can see visible results after regular use.
Composition of bath bombs:
Bath bombs and soaking salts that are specifically made to target cellulite usually contain
- Grapefruit oil,
- Coconut oil and
- Epsom salt
- Essential oil extracts
- Vitamin E, A and C
Flavors and varieties:
You can read about the exact composition of products on the custom bath bomb boxes they come in. There are variations available with cocoa, shea butter, seaweed and avocado. You can research which ingredients suit you best. These bath bombs come Is many shapes, sizes and colors, some may even contain glitter. The variety factor makes them very attractive for consumers as you’ll never be bored with the same product.
In addition to cellulite reduction, these bath bombs also help with fat burning, weight loss, detoxing, reducing inflammation and tightening the skin.
How they work:
These bath bombs add Emollients and softeners to the bath water making it an excellent medium for moisturization. Caffeine and grapefruit oil help with rejuvenation of skin and fat burning that in turn reduce appearance of cellulite significantly. Essential oils present in these bath bombs act as aromatherapy, helping with enhancing your natural senses.
You start seeing visible results after a couple months of regular use. Part of why these bath bombs are so effective is the fact that exposure time is significant. With creams and masks and scrubs, it is difficult to hold yourself for such long time. Most of us end up washing it off within 5 to 10 minutes.
Relax and rejuvenate at the same time:
But with salts and bombs you’re soaking in a relaxing warm bath, it’s easy to stay for longer durations. Ask me, I can stay in a bath for hours (you shouldn’t though, the results aren’t pretty). If you take warm baths with soaking salts and bath bombs every day for even just 20 minutes, you will start seeing results much faster than any other product in the market. This makes bath bombs highly effective for reducing appearance of cellulite.
Not just cellulite, you will feel your skin becoming more supple, soft and youthful. Healthy ingredients in these bath bombs help rejuvenate your skin and may have anti-aging properties.
These bath bombs come packing with goodness of essential oils; a big part of aromatherapy. Spending 20-25 minutes in a bath rich with scent of lavender, tea-tree, lemon or sandalwood can help reduce anxiety and stress. They also have a calming effect on nervous system that will help induce a good night’s sleep.
Bath bombs are highly effective but if you seriously want to get rid of cellulite and want to improve your health then making slight life style changes (along with using bath bombs) is the key.
it doesn’t have to be an extensive workout at the gym, just a simple walk for 20-30 minutes will do.
Try to eat cleaner, avoid processed food and extra calories. Also, incorporate healthy foods into your diet (veggies, lean meat)
Losing those extra kilos may lead to reduced cellulite, as it is just fat, when you reduce your fat percentage, dimply appearance minimizes automatically.
Use bath bombs with this improved lifestyle and you will start looking healthier, younger and prettier.
