How to Get Rid of Cellulite


What is cellulite? Cellulite is made up of fatty deposits trapped in pockets just below the skin. As a result, the fat cells are squeezed into small bulges that give the skin that unsightly lumpy, dimpled or ‘orange peel’ look.

Cellulite is typically located on the thighs, buttocks and pelvic region, giving skin a cottage cheese-like appearance. There are many causes that lead to cellulite formation, some of which are hormones, diet and lifestyle. It is primarily seen in women during their hormonal changes such as puberty, pregnancy and menopause. Cellulite also occurs when additional toxins and waste products remain in the body. Here are some of the solutions on how to get rid of cellulite.

Diet and Exercise

You need to remove as much saturated fat from your diet as possible to fight cellulite. Eliminate deep-fried food, limit your intake of processed and sugary food and avoid caffeinated/alcoholic beverages. Eat fresh fruits and vegetables and drink lots of water to flush out toxins. Focus on specific cardiovascular and anaerobic exercises that target the cellulite area affected area. Massaging improves lymph flow and is very good for reducing the appearance of cellulite.

Topical Products

Many popular cellulite treatment products today include ingredients which have proven to be helpful in reducing the amount of excess fat being stored by skin tissue in those areas. While a select few topical products for cellulite can help in reducing it over a period of time, immediate results may be achieved through professional cosmetic treatments.

Cosmetic Treatments

These treatments provide safe and effective cellulite reduction options when performed by qualified doctors. From among the non-surgical options available, the best one is the body shaping treatment. Endermologie and Laser lipolysis are two promising non-invasive treatment modalities used for treating cellulite.
