Cellulite causes that dimple-looking fat on your thighs, hips, butt, and belly! It is a condition that affects 90 percent of women and 10 percent of men. Cellulite is much more common in women than in men because of differences in the way fat cells, muscle, and connective tissue are distributed in men’s and women’s skin.
From 25 to 35 is when you start seeing the appearance of cellulite. It is tough to get rid of, especially because it can be a result of the genetic card that we were dealt with. But there are ways to prevent it, slow it down and improve the appearance. The best option to reduce the appearance of cellulite is exercise, and, if needed, weight loss. Firming and toning muscles will in turn tighten the skin, giving the illusion that cellulite is less noticeable!
How to control cellulite:
Building lean muscle in the targeted areas will decrease the appearance of cellulite in a significant way. We recommend squats, lunges, hamstring curls and single leg deadlifts. Having more muscle makes your skin look smoother and firmer. Replacing fat with muscle can also make cellulite less noticeable.
Eating a lot of refined and processed foods encourages cellulite to form. It is important to eat a diet of rich in nutrient-dense, natural foods like fruits, vegetables, and fibre to leave your skin glowing from within. Experts have concluded that eating a healthy diet can decrease fluid retention and improve the overall health and appearance of skin.
Do not sit or stand in the same position for a long time as it can affect the natural rhythm and flow of blood circulation. Get moving and boost circulation and detoxification. Changing position will also reduce the risk of developing varicose veins.
Since the human body is composed of about 60 percent water, it makes perfect sense that dehydration plays a big role in cellulite build-up under the skin. Not getting enough water can cause toxic accumulation in fat cells that is difficult for the body to metabolize and contributes to the cottage cheese texture of cellulite. Drinking plenty of water can help aid your body in metabolising fat, ridding itself of toxins and strengthen the skin.
