An Understanding before Getting Rid Of Cellulite

Beach season is coming pretty close. And aside from worrying about your wardrobe, your next concern is how you’re going to look on it. If you want to be daringly sexy on your bikinis, cellulite should be out of the picture. It is the last thing you really want to worry about when you’re lying half-naked on the beach. But before you start getting rid of cellulite, let us first know more about it.

Cellulite is a normal fat beneath the skin, best describes as the orange peel or cottage cheese-type dimpling of skin seen most commonly on the thighs, arms, hips, buttocks and abdomen. It is caused by fat deposits that push and distort the connective tissues beneath the skin, leading to the characteristic changes of skin’s appearance. It is prevalent in women than men because of differences in the way fat, muscle, and connective tissues are distributed in men and women’s skin.

Aside from the fact that it is genetic, several factors include food diet or fad dieting, slow metabolism, lack of physical activity, hormonal changes, and dehydration – that influence how much cellulite you have and how visible it is on you.

One common misconception about cellulite is to relate it to the bacterial infection known as cellulitis. Cellulitis is an acute inflammation of the dermis and subcutaneous tissue, usually complicating a wound or other skin disorders. In short, cellulite is just a skin condition, whereas cellulitis is an actual infection of the deep layers of skin.

Though cellulite is not a serious medical condition, it can be unsightly and might cause you self-conscious about wearing shorts or swim suits. There are products and treatments that promise to get rid of cellulite like creams, laser or light treatment, liposuction and a lot more. But why go through on these expensive treatments if you can get rid of cellulite naturally.

Here are 5 Natural Ways on Getting Rid of Cellulite

#1. Eat a Healthy Diet

Eating a healthy diet plays a vital role in keeping the signs of cellulite at a bay. Stock up on fruits and leafy greens. It is not necessarily for you to starve yourself to lose cellulite; you just need to choose your food wisely. It is also important to eat food with plenty of fiber and whole grain like oat cereals that help to remove waste and toxins from the intestinal tract.

#2. Keep yourself Hydrated

Always reach for a glass of water. Increasing your daily water intake can help to control calories. The effects of water can help your skin elastic and supple, reducing the cellulite that develops. Dehydration makes cellulite worse over time.

#3. Exercise Regularly

Cellulite is a fat in the body. And losing that excess weight involves workouts. Any type of inactivity is going to increase the fat deposits in your body and decrease muscle mass. Sitting around for long periods of time is going to make your fat deposits bigger and more noticeable.

Evidently, women in desk jobs are more likely to suffer from cellulite since sitting prevents sufficient blood flow to the bottom and thighs. But don’t worry, you don’t need to get a gym membership on getting rid of cellulite and to attain the figure you want; a simple 20 or 30 minute walk each day can do the trick.

#4. Wearing Loose Fitting Clothes

Keep in mind that good circulation is important in getting rid of cellulite. Tight clothes may be working against you. Notice the deep marks left on your skin when you wear tight pants or undergarments? That’s a sign that blood flow is impaired in those areas. Try to wear clothes which are a bit loose and check on the improvements of your cellulite prone regions.

#5. Skin Brushing and Moisturize using natural oils

Skin brushing stimulates skin cell rejuvenation and helps improve lymphatic flow. Use firm, circular strokes to brush the parts of your body with cellulite for a few minutes before shower. Moisturize with natural oils such as olive or coconut oil instead of topical creams.

These are simple ways to get rid of cellulite, but keep in mind that proper discipline makes all of it work.
