I'm evaluating a multi-media course on blogging from the folks at Simpleology. For a while, they're letting you snag it for free if you post about it on your blog.

It covers:

  • The best blogging techniques.
  • How to get traffic to your blog.
  • How to turn your blog into money.

I'll let you know what I think once I've had a chance to check it out. Meanwhile, go grab yours while it's still free.

Reduce cellulite


The rich and famous don’t seem be bothered but such things, cellulite thighs. This is accumulation of fat, fluid and toxins trapped into a hardened network of elastin and collagen fibers in the deeper levels of your skin. Even slim women can have it.

How to the famous do that? Well some just hide it well, 95% of women have it to some degree. Few men have it; their hormones help them out here. It’s caused by poor diet, stress, lack of exercise and surprise there are hereditary factors and hormones that factor in.

So how to remove or reduce it. The first part you probably know, eat a balanced diet, (especially avoid sugary snacks go for fruit and raw vegetables) drink plenty of water and of course get in motion. Swimming, walking and lots of stretching have emerged as the top cellulite fighters.

The drinking water, lots of it, flushes your system, removing toxins. Lots are 8 or more glasses. But avoid coffee and pops; herbal teas and fruit juices are a good substitute.

Massage the area with a brush or massage glove at least 5 min each day. This boosts circulation in the area.

Cellulite researchers recommend lots of vitamin C

There is no miracle cure; so don’t buy into any of those promises. Even surgery, liposuction, does not remove cellulite but does risk damaging circulation and the lymph system.

Two things that have been proven to help is Ionitheremei. An electric current in combination with plant and mineral preparation. Then there is Mesotherapy. This is an expensive medical therapy where drugs are injected into the cellulite lumps. It boosts circulation and stimulates drainage.

Go with a cream or oil based formula. In addition to hiding the lines, they hydrate your skin.Now if you are looking for the popular smooth, sheer finish only apply the foundation where you need it. Remove excess shine with blotting papers, not powder. When selecting your foundation look for antioxidants and vitamin A for skin protection for the elements.
