Creams containing caffeine are the newest weapons in the fight against cellulite. Cellulite is the body’s natural way of storing fat in women, and caffeine is helpful for cellulite because it opens airways while increasing blood flow. Applying caffeine-based products to cellulite-affected areas promotes easier cellulite breakdown and removal. Since caffeine works to tighten blood vessels, it can reduce fat and also enhance fat metabolism. Creams that contain caffeine can reduce some of the swelling that we get around the fat, which will make the skin appear smoother.
Massage is also an excellent home remedy for skin care because it improves blood flow, circulation, and breaks down fat cells. A massage has the healing power of touch, which eases pain, eliminates anxiety, and lessens the blows of life. Modern psychology and medicine confirm that reaching out and touching another person can frequently result in physical benefits such as decreasing blood pressure, slowing the heart rate, and speeding recovery from illness. People who are more comfortable with touch are less afraid and less suspicious of other people’s intentions. The bottom line is touching is good for everyone. One touch can comfort someone in ways that words never can.
