In order to get rid of cellulite, you need to first understand what it is. Everyone has the potential for cellulite because everyone has both fat cells and connective tissue. The strands of the connective tissue compartmentalize the fat, connecting it to the skin. In women, these fibers are in a honeycomb pattern, but in men, they form a criss-cross one. That criss-cross pattern prevents the skin from bulging and dimpling, unlike the honeycombed one that encourages it. The more fat you gain, the thinner your skin and the thicker the strands of connective tissue—which occurs with aging—the more prominent the dimpling and lumps become.
The right type of exercise program can help you reduce their visibility.
While you may never get rid of all cellulite, since it’s part of the body’s natural makeup, you will make it less visible and keep it in check with the right exercise program. Eliminating fat from the areas that are prone to the cellulite is the first step to having cottage cheese free thighs and a pucker free butt. Fat is softer than muscle tissue and takes more space per pound, working your body from all angles and insuring you use all the muscles in the area of cellulite can help reduce the fat and make the cellulite far less visible.
Eating right not only melts away fat, it reduces the visibility of the cellulite.
Eating fruits and vegetables can help you eliminate cellulite, but a tray of loaded fries certainly won’t. In fact, they may make it more noticeable. The healthier you eat, the more fat you’ll burn and some of it will be the lumpy, bumpy cellulite on your body. Eating healthier doesn’t necessarily mean following a strict diet, but definitely means making wiser choices when it comes to food. Sometimes small changes can lead to huge rewards, such as substituting Greek yogurt for sour cream or opting for an open face sandwich rather than one with two slices of bread. Both are minor changes but both save extra calories.
Massage can help eliminate cellulite.
You’ll stimulate the circulation just beneath the surface of the skin, where the cellulite lurks, with massage therapy and dry bristle skin brushing. It promotes circulation and helps release trapped toxins. It can also help break down the fat deposits to make them easier to eliminate, while providing a wonderful relaxing experience.
Getting plenty of fluid is a big aid in flushing out cellulite.
Adequate sleep is also important when you want smooth thighs and a the buttocks you’ve dreamed of having without all the lumps.
Some people are more predisposed to cellulite, so it’s harder for them to eliminate, but not impossible to see a great deal of improvement.
Using skin nourishing creams on the area with the cellulite can help build the thickness of skin, making cellulite less visible.
