As the season of travel and festivities approaches, our hearts fill with excitement, and our minds with thoughts of adventure. However, sometimes the aftermath of all the fun can leave us feeling bloated, puffy, and noticing the appearance of cellulite. It can feel as though our metabolic processes have ground to a halt. What can we do to minimize these symptoms?
Let’s explore some effective ways to combat water retention and cellulite while traveling. First and foremost, consider wearing compression socks, preferably knee-high or tights, during long periods of sedentary activity. Secondly, try raising your legs for 4-5 minutes every hour or so. If this is not feasible, self-massage can work wonders. Our lymphatic system responds well to muscle contraction, so make rhythmic upward movements with your hands and fingers to stimulate your muscles. Stretching your legs also supports blood and lymph circulation, so take regular walks, even if it’s just up and down the aisle of your airplane.
Taking food supplements can also help your body fight water retention. Always consult your doctor if you are taking any prescribed medication. Electrolytes can be especially beneficial if taken at least 3-4 days before your travel. Calcium Citrate 400mg with lunch or during the day with food, but not with any other electrolytes. Potassium is recommended with your evening meal and should not be taken along with Calcium. Magnesium, of any form, is best taken before bedtime, and 1gr is usually sufficient. Organic Apple Cider Vinegar can also support electrolyte absorption and balance.
It might also be wise to reduce your carbohydrate intake since each gram of carbohydrate retains at least 3-4 grams of water. Here at Cellulite Slayer, we’ve developed an amazing natural product called “Lymph-Drainage” (£30 per 90 capsules) that aids lymph flow and gradually decreases water retention. It contains Cleavers Leaf Extract, Celery Seed Extract, Dandelion Leaf Extract, Bladder Wrack Brown Seaweed Extract, and Parsley Root Extract, all wrapped in a vegetarian-friendly shell. A course of 3 months is recommended for the best results and is available in-store and online.
Have you ever wondered why you have cellulite or why it’s becoming difficult to touch your toes as the years go by? The answer is hidden in fascia, a connective tissue that surrounds body parts from organs to muscles to blood vessels. It connects all connective tissues, holding the entire body together. Fascia mostly consists of collagen and lies between your actual skin tissue and fat cells. Therefore, a stiff or thinning layer of it makes cellulite more obvious.
Cellulite is one of the symptoms of unhealthy, thinning, and tight fascia. Our thoroughly designed massage technique loosens the fascia, stretches it, and evens it out. We work with the deeper layers of the epidermis to offer our clients the best possible results. Our Signature Massage Treatment reduces the appearance of stretch marks, increases blood and lymph flow, breaks down scar tissue, reduces the risk of injury, and lessens day-to-day pain. We offer a range of treatments, including our Signature Cellulite Slayer, Lymphatic Drainage, and Body Contouring treatments. Hydrotherapy is another beneficial treatment that works wonders. Dip into our luxury hydro bath, and our well-qualified and experienced therapists will work wonders on your body. You will see an instant inch loss and skin tightening effect, and the next day you are sure to “feel” it—your muscles will love it too!
Of course, everything works better in combination, so here are some recommendations to achieve the best possible results on your way to a healthier you. First, stretch for 5-10 minutes a day. Hold your stretches for at least 30 seconds without forcing yourself. The key here is to be regular. Stretching elongates your muscles and releases tension. Second, after you’ve had your portion of cupping during your treatment with us, it’s always a good idea to prolong the results by doing it at home. Cupping cups are available for sale in our clinics for only £15, as well as online, exclusively through our website.
Third, try our Infrared Sauna by Sunlighten. Sitting in the sauna for 30 minutes increases levels of human growth hormone, which helps our bodies break down fats and reduce inflammation. Our infrared sauna sessions start from £60. They work well on their own, or you can try adding them just before one of our body treatments. Fourth, hydrate accordingly. Our bodies are mainly made up of water. Lastly, it’s worth looking into taking some vitamins and microelements to support your health, such as Vitamin B, C, and D. We offer a range of Skin Boosters and Vitamin Drips performed by our Dr. Maryna Svyrydyuk. See more information online or book a free consultation with us.
Merry Christmas and Happy and Healthy Holidays!
