Ice Cellulite Buster
Do not be fooled by the deliciously presenting picture of ice cream. I can see how many women and probably many men salivate when seeing them. Unfortunately, after eating them we will not get rid of the female and male, contrary to appearances, ailment which is “orange peel ”, the hated cellulite, or unnecessary fat, but just the opposite. So what’s going on? Where is the trick? Where is this buster, savior of feminine buttocks and thighs? His name is “ice”, but not the creamy one, but the crystalline solid state of common H2O. Why he deserves this title?
Cosmetics supporting the fight against cellulite uses different preparations and substances which are aimed at topical warming up or cooling skin directly affecting the metabolism of our body. In case of warming up substances or directly stretching the blood vessels “caffeine, cinnamon cream”, their rupture may occur. The situation is different in the case of ice, or precisely ice massage. Ice massage causes the body’s defensive reaction. In response to cold, the body tries to create an additional portion of heat. Body reactions to this stimulus can be divided into two phases. In the first one the narrowing of blood vessels and decrease of blood flow occurs. Our body gets the signal “SAVE YOURSELF”.
It begins to look for an additional source of heat, energy. And where the energy is stored? Each bear uses this tactic and knows that before winter and cold, it should eat a lot for the fat to help them survive this harsh season. Yes, yes, it’s fat. One can now tell about the second phase of the body’s response to cold. It increases blood circulation of the body, it expands blood vessels and capillaries also in adipose tissue in order to obtain a further dose of energy to heat a cooled body. By increasing cellular metabolism, not only we reduce our volume of the fat, but also increase oxygenation and nutrition of our cells, while intensifying the detoxification processes that remove by-products of metabolism. And these are not all of the benefits brought by ice, but more on that another time.
Before applying any ice treatment, you have to get to know the contraindications. These are among others: intolerance to cold, diseases of the heart and circulatory system, unregulated high blood pressure, purulent skin lesions, hypothyroidism.
