Let’s take a second to think about Vicks VapoRub. This beautiful minty smelling mentholated ointment has been an American remedy for since the late eighteen hundreds. You probably remember those nights having the flu when you were a kid. You could barely breath out of your nose and your mom would come up the room with a weird looking blue bottle.
She’s stick her fingers in the Vaseline like substance and rub it on your chest. Within the blink of an eye you could breath again, and the minty sensation would cradle you to sleep. Apparently, Vicks VapoRub is more useful than the average person would assume. If you sit down to perform a simple Google search you will be presented with not only hundreds, but thousands of peculiar and unheard of uses for this Vaseline-textured mint rub.
From acne medicine, to removing splinters, to healing cracked heals, and even using it to get rid of those pesky insects, VapoRub has been there for us in our darkest of times. One unique and insanely beneficial use of Vicks VapoRub, that I bet you haven’t heard of before, deals with a little problem the majority of us just can’t help but deal with.
Believe it or not, Vick’s VapoRub can be used to eliminate belly fat and cellulite, while promoting firmer skin! Who knew these little blue bottles of cream could pack such a punch. Cellulite has been plaguing the appearance of humans forever it seems. In the next article we will go over how Vick’s Vaporub tackles these hard to deal with fat deposits on our bodies.
Cellulite, we all know about this monster. Cellulite is embarrassing, disgusting looking, and just an all around pain in the neck. It’s hard walking around knowing that it looks like somebody stuffed a bunch of tapioca pudding in your pants. We all know the feeling of walking around feeling like we have bean bag chairs for thighs while were at the beach.
The comforting thing about cellulite is that a lot of people have it. Having cellulite in general by no means indicates that your overweight. While cellulite can be a symptom of being overweight, it isn’t indicative of obesity, and is a common issue for everybody. Some obvious causes of cellulite are rapid hormonal changes, poor dieting, a lack of water in the daily routine, a slow metabolism, and an overall lack of physical activity. If the above list of causes sounds like you, then maybe it is time to consider changing some aspects of your daily routine.
This is where the hero of our story, Vick’s VapoRub, enters to a fanfare of trumpets and sleighs the evil dragon that is unwanted cellulite. In the next part of this article I will walk you through the necessary steps in order to reduce cellulite by using Vick’s Vaporub. The first thing you should do is diagnose the trouble areas in which your cellulite seems to center around. Cellulite develops in various places for different people.
No two cellulites are alike, that is to say we all develop it in different places. While most people have spread the rumor that cellulite is genetic, that is to say, that if your mother has cellulite on her thighs, then you probably have cellulite on your thighs, this rumor is false. Cellulite is hard to crack down and is not necessarily something that is caused by a genetic predisposition.
For the average person the main places to target cellulite are the chin and the face line, the underarms, hips, back, the stomach, and the thighs. This is basically anywhere where noticeable fat rests o your body when your in a standing position. If you can feel it shake when you move, than its probably a trouble area. Go to your local grocery store and buy yourself some Vick’s VapoRub. Apply a good layer of VapoRub to the trouble areas and rub it in slowly.
Once the fat is localized by the VapoRub it will start working by promoting hydration in the skin and fighting off unwanted fat accumulation. This remedy works best when the Vick’s VapoRub is applied before bed time. The smell of the eucalyptus and mint is also a natural remedy for anxiety. If you don’t have the time to perform this remedy before bed, then it also can be applied in the morning, or before a workout.
The key thing to be knowledgeable of at this point, is that you can get rid of cellulite and reduce it’s accumulation regardless of your age. People often think that as they get older that cellulite accumulation is just a sign of aging, but in reality it is just a structural tissue that is affecting the skin by visibly plumping it from the outside and giving it that orange peel aesthetic.
The same ingredients in Vick’s VapoRub that help to eliminate cellulite also work to remove belly fat. Obviously Vick’s VapoRub isn’t going to magically make you lose weight, but it will help to maintain a smooth and firm belly after its use which encourages balance fat growth. By using Vick’s VapoRub to eliminate cellulite you are also boosting the firmness of the skin around fatty areas on your body.
If you didn’t know, now you do know about the numerous wonders of Vick’s VapoRub and its ability to help deal with and eliminate the issues presented by trouble cellulite and fat. When dealing with cellulite we must remember that not all remedies are going to fix our situation. Vicks VapoRub is good for aiding the elimination of cellulite, but it is not a replacement for exercise or a good and natural diet. We can’t leave our faith in Vick’s VapoRub alone to take care of our cellulite. This remedy just discussed is best used in unison with a positive diet, and lots of exercise. By staying healthy and up to date with our bodys we can win the war against that disgusting looking cellulite on our thighs.
