Help – I’ve Let Myself Go!

You’ve let yourself go? Or you are unfortunate enough to naturally gain weight, have issues with weight gain, cellulite, body image issues, the list goes on and on.

So, will exercise get rid of cellulite? Well don’t sit around on your cellulite, give it a go and see for yourself – surely that is really the only way to find out whether it will or not.

It has been proven that exercise can get rid of cellulite in certain individuals – I get emails from women every day with their happy success stories – but everybody’s makeup and situation is different – so you really have to “suck it and see”!!

If you are going to try to get rid of your cellulite with exercise, then it is recommended that you do a combination of both cardiovascular and anaerobic or strength training exercises. In addition to exercise, you should start (if you haven’t already) a low-fat, well-balanced diet plan as well as drink plenty of water throughout the day. Daily recommendations for water intake is between 2 to 3 litres, however if 3 litres is really out of your reach, 2 will suffice.

Your diet should include lean protein such as white meat (chicken) or fish, vegetables, pulses and healthy fats such as olive oil (although in moderation).

So, back to the exercise. If you would like to try the following exercise routine, I am sure you will see some satisfactory results in less than 3 to 4 months.

Try this amazing new diet – best way to lose fat and still eat all of your favourite foods.

Don’t bacteria apply too much pressure – this can rub the make-up off Do be wary if you have long nails – you could scratch your skin Don’t forget powder formulas absorb oil from skin – so use a very light touch Do wash your hands after blending to avoid staining clothes Don’t give up on brushes completely – they’re great for more tricky applications Step-by-step blending with fingers Before you begin, make sure your nails aren’t too sharp or have any ragged ends. File them neatly to prevent scratching the skin’s surface. LITTLE FINGER Perfect for: eye liner Use a soft kohl pencil to draw tiny dashes along your top lid. With the pad of your little finger, smudge the colour together, keeping it close to the lash base. Work from the inner to the outer corner, taking care …
