Cellulite – it isn’t pretty and with swimsuit season right around the corner – there is no need to start sarong shopping or hiding indoors when you can eat these skin-firming foods and feel sexy and confident at the beach this year!
One huge factor in the appearance of unwanted lumps and bumps most commonly found on the hips, butt, and thighs is HYDRATION. It’s not only important to drink water throughout the day (spring water is best and avoid water in plastic bottles!) but to also consume foods high in water content. Cucumber is a great choice – it’s 90% water!
Other water-rich fruits and vegetables include: celery, watermelon, lettuce, tomato, broccoli, and cabbage. Enjoy them organic and raw to maximize nutrient and water content and watch how your skin becomes more elastic and supple!
Blackberries and blueberries can enhance collagen production which creates new skin tissue improving the overall tone and texture of your skin. Dark berries of any type are also high in antioxidants that will help break down the fat attached to connective tissue and get rid of that uneven appearance of the skin.
And last but not least….my FAVORITE choice – dark chocolate!** Yep, dark chocolate is full of antioxidants too! You can break down the fat found in cellulite AND improve the function of the cells in your body all while satisfying your sweet tooth! Eat 1 oz of dark chocolate a day to keep YOUR skin – firm, smooth, and toned!
