Summer – the time of year we realise that our “cellulite” is still there! By understanding the causes of cellulite, we can help ease the problem.
- Hormonal imbalance
Cellulite is purely a hormonal disorder, derived from female hormone estrogen that favors fat storage as opposed to male hormone, testosterone that stimulates metabolism, thus increasing fat burning. Also, progesterone, another hormone, favors fluid retention and as a result contributes in creating cellulite.
For many women, it may be a matter of heredity. There is a strong predisposition for families with a history of phlebitis, spider vein and obesity.
It is well known that sedentary life, poor nutrition, reduced sleep, alcohol consumption and many other exogenous factors affect our body and react by worsening the appearance of orange peel in the skin.
Although cellulite is a hormonal issue, there are ways to improve its look but not to make it disappear completely. The combination of all the following tips will bring out the best result in your skin.
- Proper diet
Sugar, salt, oily food favour cellulite because of the accumulation of toxins in the body. We must select food rich in antioxidants that provide nutrients to the body. Water is also one of the most basic elements to help digest food, eliminate toxins, etc.
- Regular exercise
By toning the muscular system and increasing circulation we can prevent the undesirable orange peel look.
- Anti-cellulite creams
Anti-Cellulite creams have shown that regular usage and correct application (massaging them correctly to activate our lymph) helps improve the appearance of our skin.
