When you have cellulite, the skin on your thighs and buttocks, instead of appearing smooth, tends to appear pitted with tiny dimples all over it. There is visible excess fat on your abdomen, hips, thighs and buttocks, giving you a generally bulky appearance allround. Yet, one does not have to be overweight to have cellulite. Those with a fairly slim figure can also suffer from it. It is basically a type of fat tissue existing just below the outer layer of the skin. There are 2 types of cellulite – hard and soft. The hard variety has been there a long time, and has more or less attached itself to the muscle tissues, whereas the softer type tends to sag but is easier to get rid of. This problem is more common among women than men.
The layer of cellulite which exists below the skin consists of several bands of connective tissue containing fat cells cushioned by a liquid which may have some toxins in it. Trapping of these toxins under the skin thickens the connective tissue, giving rise to the pitted surface on the skin. Another factor which thickens the connective tissue is age, which also makes the skin less elastic. The elasticity of the skin is also reduced by overproduction of hormones which, apart from depositing fat in some parts of the body, also tear apart the collagen fibres. Older women are more likely to suffer from cellulite than their younger counterparts.
It is simple to see that a sedentary lifestyle tends to promote cellulite.
Hence, a moderate exercise regimen, undertaken daily, will go a long way in getting rid of this problem. Even a daily walk in the park for 20 minutes will work wonders for the skin.
Having a higher proportion of proteins than carbohydrates in your diet is another way of reducing cellulite. Carbohydrates tend to accumulate in the body as fat, whereas proteins help in muscle building and promoting healthy tissues. Overall, a well-balanced diet combined with an active lifestyle is necessary in order to keep cellulite away. Drinking plenty of water to clear the toxins out of your body, abstaining from smoking, alcohol and caffeinated drinks, will all help to bring back the elasticity of the skin and remove unwanted cellulite.
Another enemy of a slender figure and firm skin, is stress and tension. It causes blockages in muscle tissues, preventing elimination of toxins and fats, of which cellulite is formed. Go for meditation, 20 minutes a day if you possibly can.
The herb gingko biloba is superb at improving circulation and metabolizing fats. A couple of tablets taken daily will give you good results in a short time. If you are suffering from high BP however, consult a physician before commencing on this form of treatment.
The versatile apple cider vinegar is another remedy for cellulite. Mixed with olive oil and applied over the affected areas, it will work towards reducing the unsightly appearance of cellulite.
