Getting Rid of Folds

Ridding yourself of folds

Thankfully you might not need a tummy tuck after all, see these helpful tips below

1. Eat right: Eating a well-balanced diet (consisting mainly of fruits, veggies and whole grains and low in fat and refined sugars) plus exercising regularly, will help you shed not only subcutaneous fat (the surface fat that makes love handles), but also the deeper visceral fat.

2. Work out: Dieting alone will not help you rid yourself of folds and vice versa. Regular exercise not only helps you slim down your whole body, it actually shrinks the size of fat cells in your stomach and tones your abdomen and midsection.

– Exercise routine: pick a cardiovascular exercise (such as swimming, running or cycling) + an exercise aimed at the abdomen region(such as as stomach crunches, yoga plank poses and leg lifts).

-Exercise at least 5 days a week for 30 minutes at a time.

How to Prevent Dark Armpits

How to Prevent Dark Armpits
1. Avoid shaving: Shaving removes hair on the surface and leaves a stubble which gives the appearance of a dark armpit. Shaving also causes the skin to become rough and lead to pigmentation overtime. An alternative to shaving is waxing, this removes the hair from the roots and leaves you feeling fresh.

2. Reduce your use of shaving creams: Shaving creams contain harsh chemicals that can harm your skin. Frequent use of these products can lead to irritation, pigmentation, rashes and skin disorders. The safer alternative we advice again is to wax your underarms.

3. Have your bath regularly: Bath regularly especially if the weather is hot. Not taking a bath can lead to build up of bacteria that cause smelly sweat and pigmentation.
