Know About Cellulite and Their Removal

Cellulite are deposits of fat in pockets just below the skin and they appear as ungainly bulges of fat that are uneven and are considered a cause of embarrassment by many when the skin tends to have the “orange peel” look.

There are many causes of cellulite. The degree of fat deposits depends on genetics, the age and the type of skin. Ill health and poor blood circulation also result in fat deposits. Poor diet and lack of exercises contribute to the increased chances of celluloid.

Smoking has been considered as a major cause too. Smoking not only is a health hazard, but also causes the skin to get dried and contributes to reduced blood flow, thereby resulting in celluloid deposit.

Estrogen is a hormone, because of the imbalance in the secretion of which can cause this fat deposit. This is also the reason why pregnant women have fat deposits on their bodies.

There are cellulite creams that are available in the market that help in reduction of the excess fat. Liposuction is also an option. However, removing the cause of celluloid has twice the benefits. If you regularly exercise, you will help reduce celluloid and also will have a leaner and a better body that is good in shape and health. Aerobics and exercises like tennis, jogging and swimming are of great help.

Giving up smoking will help in the reduction of cellulite by better flow of blood in the body. This will also ensure that the other body parts also get benefited by the regular supply of oxygen and nutrients that come with blood. The overall health will improve. The skin also gets more supple and healthy because of the reduction of toxins.

Drinking a lot of water coupled with the right diet always has a positive impact on the metabolism and helps in better digestion of food and assimilation of energy.

The water in the body helps the skin get more elastic and hence there is a bonus while exercising as the body tends to get back into normal shape with the skin tightening around the bulging celluloid. These simple habits will help you get rid of all that ungainly fat.

What are those nasty lumps on your thighs and hips? Well don’t be alarmed because it is just cellulite which is traceable in almost 90 percent of the women. And when I say women, I mean women only because men are lucky that way and you will hardly ever find a man who has got cellulite. Cellulite is the fat stored around the buttocks and thighs giving them a dimpled or lumpy look. So now you know why your thighs and hips feel so cushiony.

Inspired by those sexy models in advertisements, some of you would have tried almost anything from using creams to using electronic gadgets to exercising to get rid of those unsightly fat lumps. There are lots of causes such as hereditary factors, low physical activity, binging on sweets and fried foods, and going scarce on water which lead to cellulite formation.

But if you’re serious about getting rid of cellulite, leave the causes and all other things aside and get on to a healthy diet and regular exercise program. Crash diets are no good, because they make you splurge too often and specially on weekends and holidays, so just drop the idea. You don’t necessarily need to be fat to have cellulite, even thin women have it. And believe me when I say cellulite is more like your faithful companion (or call it your enemy) who sticks around you through your “thick and thin”.

So by now that you’re convinced that crash dieting isn’t the way to go, how about taking the initiative to plan a healthy and well balanced low fat diet to combat cellulite. Leave all the fried foods and sweet desserts out of your diet plan, and replace them with lots and lots of water and green veggies. And as we said losing weight isn’t enough, how about getting onto an aerobics program to tone up your muscles. For exercises, cardio and weights training also have a wonderful effect on shrinking cellulite. Do ensure a minimum of 30 minutes of exercise thrice a week, and remember exercise means exercise and it cannot be replaced with your everyday household activities.
