Cellulite

It’s time to stop sugar coating and be honest. Cellulite is the worst! It’s worse than worse, it’s horrendous. For many it’s considered one of the top ten most frustrating body issues, especially for women. And for some, it’s not a matter of weight or size, it’s actually genetics, now that’s not fair. So now that the hate fest has begun, lets talk about how to tackle stubborn cellulite because not everything on the market works.

 

According to health.com, cellulite affects nearly 90% of women in their lifetime…90%! Let that sink in for a moment.  

So what causes this evil condition? Cellulite is caused by tissue hypoxia, which is fancy way to say that the tissue beneath the skin is lacking oxygen.  Essentially fat deposits push through the tissue of the skin weakening the connective tissue, thus causing dimpling. The problem can be exacerbated by lack of exercise, muscle tone, exercise and poor circulation. And guess what, the condition worsens with age, so we should work to minimize the appearance sooner rather than later.

 

Believe it or not there are some natural home remedies that help manage cellulite.

 

1)  Topical Treatments - According to Top 10 Home Remedies,  apple cider vinegar mixed with water has been known to help as a topical treatment:  1 part vinegar and 2 parts water. Apply to the surface, rinse after 30 minutes.

 

2)  Detox – Drain the skin and body by drinking warm lemon water every morning when you wake up. This will help the organs function properly and reduce excess fluid in the body. Try ½ lemon squeezed into an 8 ounce mug.

 

3)  Dry Brushing – using a brush with natural bristles, work up from the legs toward the heart. There are countless helpful tutorials on Pinterest to help you learn the proper technique.

 

4)  Diet – Although genetics often plays a role in cellulite, diet can have a direct impact as well. Eating a diet rich in avocados, bell peppers and cucumbers can help combat the development of new cellulite.

 

We could go on and on with suggested home remedies. And there are many that are proven to have positive results. The bottom line is and always has been: eat right and exercise. And apply products that have proven results to correct cellulite, tighten the skin and reduce the appearance of dimpling.
