According to some estimates, cellulite affects up to 90 percent of women. However, despite being extremely common, there is an alarming amount of misinformation available regarding the true cause of this condition and effective treatment options.
Cellulite develops due to an accumulation of fat cells and the inherent structure of your internal skin tissues. When fat cells grow, they push through the layers of collagen fibers that exist beneath the skin. The collagen fibers respond by pulling down, creating a tension that leads to surface dents and dimples. A number of factors can weaken the fibers and make them more susceptible to this process, including hormones, a lack of exercise, minimal muscle tone, excessive fat and poor circulation.
The condition tends to worsen with age because the body naturally begins to produce less estrogen. Without an optimal amount of this vital hormone, many women experience poor circulation, a decrease in collagen production and a breakdown of connective tissues – all major contributors to cellulite.
How to get rid of Cellulite
There is no shortage of cellulite reduction treatments available. However, some are more effective than others (and some simply don’t work.) The only ones that we recommend include:
Exercise has an undeniably positive effect on cellulite. Lifting weights and building muscle almost always results in smoother skin.
By losing weight and replacing it with lean muscle, less fat will push through the connective tissue. Thus, your cellulite will improve and the entire area will appear firmer.
