Christmas Countdown Tip No. 14
Try foam rolling to help get rid of your cellulite
If you don’t already own one, perhaps it’s time to ask Santa for a foam roller? They really are a fantastic tool to help with general mobility and are great to relieve stiffness/ soreness after a workout. There are millions of you-tube tutorials, pinterest pins and fitness pages dedicated to helping you foam roll efficiently, so I won’t go into details here, but it’s definitely worth exploring more. Here’s a good place to start: http://www.foamroll.net/fitness-tips/get-rid-of-cellulite-with-foam-rolling/
One of the lesser-known side-effects of foam rolling is that it can, temporarily at least, help with the appearance of cellulite. Foam rolling is designed to stretch out your body’s soft tissues, especially your connective tissues (aka fascia) to break down any fibrosis or “knots”. Regular, effective rolling will help to restore elasticity and allow freer muscle movement. It’s basically like giving yourself a deep tissue massage.
This massage also helps to stimulate increased blood and lymphatic circulation. And we know that any increase in blood flow to the skin will help maintain a healthier skin as the blood carries oxygen and nutrients to keep the skin cells healthy. Plus a boosted lymphatic system means that you’ll have less build-up of lymph fluid, leaving you feeling lighter and more rejuvenated, as well as experiencing the long-term benefits of a healthy lymphatic system.
If Santa needs some help choosing a roller, then a medium to high-density roller is best. You can start off with smooth rollers, and work your way up to using one with deeper ridges that will really help with that myofascial release and fibrotic cellulite.
