Does Body Brushing Get Rid Of Cellulite?
Cellulite poses a real problem for many women, and while we would all love to have perfect, flawless skin, the reality is that cellulite is very common condition that can be difficult to avoid.
Because of this, there’s a wide variety of ‘treatments’ and ‘solutions’ on the market – and this includes everything from costly liposuction and laser surgery to various ‘miracle solution’ creams that supposedly reduce the appearance of cellulite (but are rarely as effective as they claim to be).
Amongst all of these treatments, you’ll also find something known as ‘body brushing’. The idea behind this is that you use the a special ‘body brush’ along your thighs, buttocks, and any other problem areas – and this brush is supposed to ‘remove toxins’ and increase circulation, in an effort to give the skin a smoother, dimple-free appearance.
For this to give results, many women find that it’s important to use a very firm brush, which should work better to increase circulation and smooth out the dimples.
However, while some people believe it removes toxins from the skin, others disagree. In fact, some of the initial results you see from body brushing may simply be due to the swelling effect that the brush can cause when it’s brushed vigorously against the skin.
While this may smooth the appearance for a few hours, it’s rare to see long-term or permanent results with this type of treatment. The people who do make this work tend to be very dedicated to using the brush often, but you’re still going to struggle t see results that last for more than a few hours after the treatment.
The reason why many treatments tend to be ineffective is because cellulite is a skin structure problem which can’t be ‘cured’ by topical creams or special body brushes, especially if you want long-term results.
But one thing that can improve the tone and texture of cellulite is to start a workout program that targets your problem areas. These workouts don’t have to be too taxing, but you do need to cover specific movements for the best results.
One of the best guides I’ve found for this is the one created by Joey Atlas, who is the creator of the The Truth About Cellulite program. This goes into great detail on various exercises you can do in the comfort of your own home, and these movements target and focus on the underlying muscle tone which can help to tighten up the skin and smooth out the dimpled areas.
These exercises aren’t the usual gym workouts you may have tried before – they’ve been specially created by Joey to reduce cellulite in the most common problem areas. These exercises are simple and straightforward to perform, and they really help to reduce the appearance of cellulite and tighten up the appearance of your skin – so it’s something I’d certainly recommend instead of body brushing.
