Apart from football and the Amazon, Brazil is known for producing gorgeous beauties such as supermodels Alessandra Ambrosio, Gisele Bundchen, Adriana Lima and Camila Alves. While many women crave the curves of Brazilian women but may be stumped about how to keep the curves and nix there cellulite.
Cellulite is a condition in which the skin appears to have areas with underlying fat deposits, giving it a dimpled, lumpy appearance. It is most noticeable on the buttocks and thighs. A diet consisted of high-fat, high-carbs and sugar is the main contributor of the “cottage cheese” appearance, but genetics can also be a factor.
So how does the Brazilian get their bum and thighs look oh-so-amazing? The answer is right below our feet– Sand! Yeap, beach sand to be exact.
They can often be spotted rubbing sand on their bodies while at the beach to smooth and stimulate the skin in an effort to reduce cellulite. The sand acts as a pumice to the skin, sloughing off dead skin cells and stimulating the skin to produce a new and fresh surface.
Brazilian women use the exfoliating property of the sand to boost circulation in their lower limbs and combat cellulite. But that being said, they also took the time to get a little exercise by playing volleyball or jogging by the beach, as well as eating a balanced diet.
Alternatives To Sand
Living in the city and has no extra beach sand around? Fret not, there’s a myriad of products that imitate the cellulite-busting benefits of the grainy stuff.
Lush, a fresh handmade cosmetics line, has created a soap product designed to work in the shower the same way sand works for Brazilian women on the beach. Lush added sand to their Sandstone Soap product to exfoliate the body, in addition to other moisturizing products, to leave your skin soft and smooth.
Other substitutes could include bath salts or body exfoliators to help increase the skin’s stimulation and promote circulation, like Shimizu Body Slimming Salt, which will flush out toxins from the body and firms it up, just as beach sand would.
However, bear in mind that the ridged lumps won’t disappear unless you include healthy eating habits and cardio into your workout regiment.MYNEWSHUB
