Cellulite: 5 Facts You Need To Know

Ugh, cellulite.

Those lumpy and dimpled fat deposits just beneath the skin can affect anyone – even the slender and fit. It is reported that nearly 90% of adult women of all shapes and sizes develop some form of cellulite somewhere on the body at some point during their lives.

But you do not need to rely on invasive cosmetic procedures to fight this pesky skin situation. There are other effective ways to reduce the appearance of cellulite safely and effectively.  

Here are 5 facts you need to know about cellulite:

1. Cellulite Is Not Your Regular Fat

Fat is just a component of what causes cellulite. Cellulite is the visibility of subcutaneous fat deposited just below the surface of the skin. Put simply, cellulite can be defined as the dimples and bumps that are seen when fat is pushed through layers of collagen fibers, or connective tissue, under the skin (most commonly around the hips, thighs and buttocks).

While regular exercise practice cannot cure cellulite, it can help prevent or minimize its appearance by expelling toxins through your skin and strengthening connective fibers.

2. Dehydration Can Make Your Cellulite Appear Worse

Dehydrated skin is more susceptible to imbalances that lead to cellulite.  The better hydrated the body, the plumper the skin cells are, the smoother your skin looks and feels. A well-hydrated body avoids fluid retention that can make cellulite appear worse. Drinking water flushes toxins,  improves circulation and increases skin elasticity. Hydrating your body also strengthens the collagen in the skin which is an important protein making up your skin.

3. Cellulite Is Exacerbated By Unhealthy Diet

Your diet alone does not determine whether you will or will not get cellulite but eating a well-balanced diet certainly helps fight unwanted cellulite. Processed food are the worst cellulite-promoting offenders. The good news is cutting down your sugar, fat, and sodium can lessen your cellulite in the long run. Swap your packaged foods such as potato chips and pretzels to healthier options such as sunflower seeds and oatmeal. You can also include in your diet natural antioxidants (such as fresh strawberries or natural pineapple juice) and healthy fats (such as nuts, avocado, and olive oil). 

4. Slow Metabolism Can Lead To Cellulite Development

Having a slow metabolism can cause circulatory problems making your body unable to “burn” your fats. If you feel you have slow metabolism or certain hormonal concerns, make sure you consult your doctor on what natural supplements you can take to boost your metabolism.

5. Non-Invasive Cellulite Treatments Can Be Effective
