More women than you think have a problem with cellulite. From actresses to singers to many of the women you see on the cover of magazines it. But, unlike you they have the power of the almighty “Photoshop” and its paintbrush tool. In other words unlike them you can’t just paint your cellulite away.
What is cellulite Anyways?
Cellulite is fat cells that have broken through the cell walls into the middle layer of the skin. Once there they pull on the surrounding connective tissues and end up creating an unpleasant, unattractive, appearance of dimples (cottage cheese look) on the surface of your skin. It is the result of too much body fat and usually forms in high fat areas such as a woman stomach, butt, and/or thighs.
Can You Get Rid of Cellulite?
Well not completely! See just like any other fat in order to get rid of cellulite you are going to have to watch what you eat and exercise. In other words say away from too processed and fast foods. Limit your daily caloric intake to a healthy size and combine it with an active lifestyle. Proper diet (just better eating choices and sizes) combined exercise it the key to getting rid of the unwanted dimples.
What Doesn’t Work
Some people will have you believe that deep tissue massages get rid of cellulite and this is absolutely false. All that happens in a deep tissue massage is that all the pressure being applied to that area will simply reduce the appearance of cellulite temporarily. See what happens is because they are massage so hard you skin simply puffs up and it temporarily looks like the cellulite is gone.
There are no quick ways!
OK well, there are quick ways but I wouldn’t recommend them. The most common is liposuction and most doctors’ claim that it will eliminate cellulite. The problem is that fat can never truly disappear with some possible health issue. Another fact is that even though liposuction could work in the short-term, remember that fat is directly related to your eating and exercise habits. Therefore, if you changed nothing prior to liposuction it will just come right back and you’ve now entered a cycle!
