How to get ready for beach season
Hot rays of summer beams put some thoughts about tropical beaches and emphatically remind that in order to be ready
for beach season it is necessary to prepare not only summer clothes, but also body. And now, facing a mirror in a beautiful
swimsuit, many of us are horrified by deposited excess fat on belly, cellulite on hips, insufficiently elastic breast skin,
areas of dry, scaled off skin on elbows and knees an so on. It is obvious that in order to meet the beach season in a good
form one must take care of his appearance and do it quickly enough.
Those, who have time and money may take a course
of keeping his figure in a beauty salon or SPA. Usually these procedures include usage of biologically active substances
which speed up splitting fats in fatty cells, strengthen vessels, stimulate blood circulation and increase the skin elasticity.
The procedures include also massage (manual or apparate) which stimulates blood circulation and splits fats. There are also
other methods for softening fibrous tissue and excretion of excess fluid from the body.
Here are the following kinds
1. Thalassotherapy – treating and
prophylactic procedures (bath, wrapping, peelings and so on) on the basis of sea mud, plankton, algae and sea salts
2. Wrapping – an active cosmetic product and/or mud and algae are applied
to problem skin areas. Then these areas are wrapped in polyethylene film or elastic bandage and are covered with a blanket.
As a result the skin is warmed up and effect is increased.
with anticellulite preparations. Usually these preparations include algae, plant extracts, containing alkaloids (caffeine,
theophylline) or pure caffeine and also a substance, stimulating metabolism and fat splitting (carnitine)
4. Lymphodrainage (manual or apparate) , stimulating fluid outflow from problem
5. Mesotherapy – microinjections of biologically
active substances into skin
6. Endermology – roller
apparate massage over a special suit which effectively softens fibrous tissues and stimulates fat splitting
if you have no time for all these procedures – don’t loose hope. In many cases simple procedures at home allow
to give the body well-groomed and attractive appearance on condition that these procedures are regular, preparations are selected
correctly and the diet is well balanced. It is significant to remember that in the struggle with overweight and cellulitis
the dominant position occupies physical activity but not expensive procedures.
Let’s start with a diet as there are no cosmetic products whatever that are able to fill up the shortage of
important substances in the body in case improper diet. First of all in order to improve the skin appearance one should avoid
any diets, based on restrictions as these diets only aggravate disbalance of nutrients and very often end in compensatory
overeating. Instead one shoul not restrict but, on the contrary, add necessary components to the diet. As the diet is enriched
with wholesome products unhealthy products will be gradually replaced and their consumption will go down in itself. So, vegetables
and fruits must be present on your table without fail – three or five times daily. Never mind, be it salad, vegetable
soup or only apple. The main thing is that these products must be always present in our diet, several times a day.
The next obligatory components in our diet are the products from whole grain.
It can be wholemeal bread, brown rice or porridges from millet, oat and so on. And finally, a source of fatty acids –
vegetable oil, fish, nuts, flax or hemp seeds. As a rule, people, living in civilized countries, do not suffer from proteins
shortage. More likely, excess of animal proteins, typical for the diet of people, living in prosperous countries, results
in accumulation of toxic metabolic by-products in the body. Besides, it must be kept in mind that the legislation
of many meat exporting countries (for example, USA, Canada, Argentina) allows usage of hormone-containing products, stimulating
weight gaining in animals. The same substances may also lead to weight gaining in people, eating these products. Therefore
it is strongly recommended to those who get used to eat much meat to include more often fish (except grown in ponds) in their
diet, forcing out meat.
Physical activity must not be exhausting,
it must be regular. Daily walking is more useful as compared with training once a week. One-time intensive loading forces
the body to consume more nutrients which are deposited on belly and hips. And on the contrary, regular and not exhausting
load stimulates depletion of fat deposites. Besides, such a moderate load stimulates blood circulation without risk of vessel
dilatation on face and legs.
The third constituent of success
is correctly selected cosmetic products. Even a single very good moisturizing body cream, regularly used after every bath
or shower, is able to considerably improve the skin elasticity and make less visible the signs of cellulitis and aging.
The reason is the following: in well-moisturized skin the exchange of signal molecules, responsible for “cellular dialogue”,
goes more effectively, stimulating the processes of skin renewal and regeneration. Besides, well-moisturized skin looks more
elastic in itself. The effect of such a product will be still more visible in case this product contains active ingredients,
stimulating collagen synthesis, speeding up lipolysis and normalizing blood circulation.
Peeling and scrubs are used
for speeding up skin renewal. As their applying is accompanied by a massage, they also stimulate blood circulation and provide
accelerated lipolysis. Scrubs, containing in addition to sequestrants biologically active substances, counteracting aging
and cellulitis, are particularly useful.
