Most women are delighted to have fat – in the right places. Above their clothing, it looks very pleasing to the eyes, but beneath sometimes it might be a bit unsightly because of dimples and bumps resulting from cellulite.

Let’s talk about cellulite and how you can treat it!

WHAT IS CELLULITE?

Cellulite affects areas of the body such as the thighs, the buttocks, and the stomach and is caused by a buildup of body fat under the skin. The fat pushes out through layers of the fiber under the skin to create a dimple effect often known as “cottage cheese effect” on the skin. Though not a disease, the cosmetic condition does not take sides and can affect both full figured and slim women.

CAUSES OF CELLULITE

There is no particular cause of cellulite as it can come as a result of a myriad of thing which include but are not limited to:

  • Unhealthy lifestyle

  • Pregnancy

  • Hormones

  • Weight gain (which was initially thought of as its only cause)

  • Accumulated toxins

  • Sedentary lifestyle

Cellulite is more common amongst women than men as research show that 80-90% of women are inflicted with dimpled skin after puberty. And as they get old and their skin gets loose, the condition is more noticeable.

PREVENTION

Just as a sedentary lifestyle causes it, an active and healthy lifestyle is a sure way of keeping cellulite at bay. Do your daily workouts to keep fit, drink lots of water and eat healthily. Also, note that taking care of your skin and staying away from tobacco and its substitutes are also good ways to make sure that you don’t end up with a cottage cheese skin.

TREATMENT

Research has shown that most times, you cannot totally rid yourself of cellulite but it can be reduced drastically to make it invisible with the use of topical methods like creams and scrubs, or medical methods like liposuction.
