Tips from our New York Laser Lipo Surgeons
Let’s face it. We like it when our bodies look their best. Men and women both are tied to their appearances, and each gender craves certain specifics, for the most part.
Because women are more prone to cellulite, they do well to incorporate certain habits into their daily lifestyle to learn how to reduce cellulite from reappearing following laser fat removal by our laser lipo NYC and Long Island doctors..
H2O for Better Health
Truth be told, there are very few cases where a person drank too much water and had life-threatening results. Most of us could benefit from a bit more water each day.
Although it is common knowledge that we should all consume at least 8 full glasses of water a day – that’s about 64 ounces total – most of us are lucky if we get two to three down. Instead, we reason that our morning coffee or tea is hydration enough.
Studies have shown, however, that caffeinated drinks, in particular, can actually deplete the body of necessary hydration rather than supply it with what it needs.
To avoid the dreaded “cottage cheese” thighs, drinking plenty of water should become old hat. If water is just too bland and boring for you, consider mixing it up a bit.
Some say that adding one part unsweetened cranberry juice to seven parts water actually works to help the body deal with cellulite.
- Adding apple slices and a cinnamon stick, lemon and cucumber slices, or strawberries and kiwi fruit to your refrigerated water container may also help you feel more drawn to getting hydration from your ultimate source. Look up “spa water” recipes online to get more ideas!
“Eat to Live Well” Advice
Contrary to popular believe, food is not intended to supply us with entertainment, comfort, or even pleasure. Although it is nice to enjoy the foods that you eat every day, it helps to remember that the primary role of all food is to fuel the body.
Approaching food with this in mind can help you to incorporate more of the foods that build health and beauty. To combat cellulite, in particular, you want skin to be amply hydrated and supplied with collagen, which supports the structure of this organ.
Because collagen production decreases as we age, and as a result of too much sun exposure, we need to eat in ways that help the body increase production of this necessary substance.
Foods that are high in vitamin C are essential, as this vitamin is a powerful aid to the retention and production of collagen.
The aim for all of us should be at least 75 milligrams of vitamin C each day, either through supplements are through colorful fruits and vegetables like:
- Bell peppers
- Dark leafy greens (kale, collard greens)
- Broccoli, cauliflower and Brussels sprouts
Of course, along with a healthy diet following treatment in our SmartLipo Manhattan and Long Island facilities, regular exercise is crucial to lasting results.
