You probably know that the way of eating largely impacts the body’s functions, which implies and defines the physical appearance of every organism. For that reason, it’s crucial to know which food to avoid or at least to consume in a reasonable quantity.
With all the new diet fads going around such as banting, low carb, paleo etc, our new favorite is called The Permissive Diet. Forget focusing on what you cannot eat, or cutting out whole food groups, which is anyway confusing as what is good today is poison tomorrow, and rather focus on what you can eat. This will also help to make healthier choices and cut out the confusion of what is allowed and what isn’t. Making healthy choices is truly a diet that works and is more sustainable than making unrealistic changes. Continue reading

Myths about cellulite tend to create panic amongst body conscious women. The cosmetic condition affects nearly 90% of women at some point during their lives, even women who are otherwise slender and fit.
As common as cellulite is, there is also an awful lot of misinformation out there about what it is, what causes it, and how to get rid of it. Therefore, before placing blame, scheduling a cosmetic procedure, or spending a fortune on over-the-counter products, read up on the real story behind cellulite.
Myth: Tanning will get Rid of Cellulite.
Fact: Back away from the tanning bed! There is a long-held belief that tanned skin will mask the signs of cellulite. In addition, OK, sure, that is somewhat true, but, in the end, it will actually make your cellulite worse. Damaged skin is thinner and weaker — a recipe for disaster in the cellulite department
Myth: Only overweight people get cellulite.
Fact: Even rail-thin models and professional athletes can — and do! — have cellulite, but, thanks to the magic of Photoshop, you would never see cottage cheese thighs in a glossy magazine
Myth: It does not matter what you do — you are always going to have cellulite.
Fact: Of course, plenty of the reason women have cellulite has to do with genetics — but do not let yourself off the hook that much. Eating right, exercising often, getting enough sleep and laying off the smokes will all reduce the appearance of cellulite. Another reason to treat your body well!
Myth: Losing weight will get rid of cellulite.
Fact: Losing weight may reduce the appearance of cellulite in some people — but certainly not everyone. For some women, in fact, losing weight makes their cellulite look worse than it did before. There is no guarantee that weight loss will lead to less cellulite
If you show signs of cellulite, don’t panic, Bellabaci have an incredible innovative system, which can help you get rid of that unwanted orange peel effect. Moreover, this is no myth!

Diet changes to help reduce cellulite are an important topic this time of year. Spring is almost half way through; summer is around the corner, which means bathing suits, shorts, skirts and clothing garments above the knee. How confident are you this season to bare those thighs? If you are entering the winter season, now is the perfect time to ensure that you will be bikini-ready by next summer!
Try these natural tips for preventing or reducing that dimpled, orange-peel look on your thighs and other body parts.
Load up on anti-oxidants
Include plenty of antioxidant-rich foods in your diet, such as acai and other berries, red and orange fruits and veggies, and citrus fruits. Antioxidants are your number one defense against free radicals, which cause damage to skin cells and can contribute to cellulite formation.
Drinking green tea can help reduce the signs of cellulite. Green tea has been found to be effective for increasing energy expenditure and assisting with weight loss. It is also a powerful antioxidant that helps prevent free radical damage. Drink about three cups of green tea a day.
Replace saturated fats with healthy omega-3 fats such as oily fish, flax seed, fish oils, and nuts. These help with blood circulation. Poor circulation reduces the body’s ability to deliver nutrients to skin cells, causing them to clump together, which can compound cellulite problems.
Regular exercise is vital. It burns calories to reduce fat, boosts circulation and can help disguise cellulite by increasing muscle tone under the skin. Exercise also improves lymphatic drainage, which carries toxins away from cells. If drainage is sluggish, it will contribute to cellulite.
Cut out toxins
A build-up of toxins in the body can affect the dermis and contribute to cellulite formation. Remove or limit toxins such as tobacco, alcohol, coffee and heavily processed foods containing high levels of sugar and chemical additives. Make sure you drink plenty of water.
Try herbs. Dandelion leaf tea helps reduce fluid retention, as well as helping to flush toxins from the body. You can also use dandelion leaves in salads or fresh juices. Ginkgo biloba, a herbal preparation from the dried leaves of the ginkgo tree, helps boost circulation.
External treatments such as coffee scrubs can improve circulation and reduce signs of cellulite. Use a coffee scrub twice a week. Moisten your skin under the shower, turn the water off, rub coffee granules into the affected areas for a few minutes, and then rinse off.

Although it is great to focus on your diet and exercise in the battle against cellulite, one fact is for sure, you won’t get anywhere if you don’t look after your connective tissues.
How is the skin structured?
First, let’s have a look at the anatomy that runs skin deep. Your outermost layer of skin is known as the Epidermis, which consists of 6 layers, but all in all is actually paper thin. In these layers you have your immune cells, pigment cells and its main function is to act as a protective barrier to the elements. Continue reading
