A remedy against cellulite? Try Basil!
You know him as a great ally in all recipes, but face it: you never expected that basil could also become the magician of anti-cellulite remedies?
This highly fragrant ingredient is highly versatile, suitable for many dishes in the kitchen, not only due to its delicate and typical flavour, but also for its many beneficial properties. Used regularly it counteracts inflammations and helps digestion; purifies and detoxifies the skin, helping our body to eliminate water excess. Is it’s draining action that makes it particularly effective in the fight against cellulite.
It can be used in herbal teas to be consumed cold two or three times a day, mixing the basil with a few mint leaves to enhance the refreshing, as well as detoxifying action. If you use this constantly you can note (perhaps first with a little surprise!) the improvement of your skin.
To counter water retention and facilitate the disposal of liquids, basil can also be employed in the form of essential oil. To combat orange-peel skin specialized massages with basil oil are very useful, to be done daily by treating the area with slow movements from the bottom upwards.
Basil is a very good partner, but of course the problem of cellulite has to be fought on many fronts in a harmonious way. Remember always to follow a healthy and active lifestyle. Drinking lots of water and eat fruits and vegetables, in season as well as movement every day revitalizing your path ... always carrying with you a pinch of basil.
