Sooner or later, cellulite creeps into every woman’s life. It’s a great inconvenience, but most people don’t even consider that men can have cellulite as well. This fat and water build up under our skin can be caused by a variety of factors such as genetic predisposition, hormonal imbalances, bad eating habits, and a sedentary lifestyle. Cellulite can become an aesthetic issue because it causes your skin to appear wavy and dimply, like the skin of an orange. Fortunately there are natural alternatives that can significantly reduce the appearance of cellulite when paired with exercise and healthy eating habits. In today’s video we’re going to concentrate on two plants that are great for anyone dealing with cellulite issues: artichoke and horsetail.
Artichoke has diuretic properties that can help fight water retention, one of the main causes of cellulite. Furthermore, this plant can also aid in weight loss by reducing our intestines’ ability to absorb lipids. Just like the artichoke, horsetail also has diuretic properties, as well as antioxidant properties that detoxify your body. It’s great for anyone who has cellulite because it improves your body’s lymphatic and circulatory functions, which helps eliminate unwanted fat. In order to benefits from the properties we just explained, the best thing to do is drink artichoke and horsetail tea.
This tea will help your body get rid of accumulated toxins, reduce fat and improve skin elasticity. Here’s what you need: 1 artichoke; 2 cups of water; 2 tablespoons of horsetail; 1 teaspoon of lemon juice. Now all you have to do is: Cut the artichoke into pieces and put them in a pot to boil. Whenever the water starts boiling turn down the heat and add the horsetail. Let it boil for 2 or 3 more minutes. Turn off the stove and let the mixture cool for 15 minutes. Once the time is up, strain it and add the lemon juice. It’s recommended that you drink this tea for 2 weeks, once in the morning and again at night. After the two weeks are up, stop for one week and then start back up again. It may be a while before you see any results, but it’s definitely worth it. .
