Getting rid of cellulite.
When you think of cellulite, you probably think of ugly ‘orange peel skin’ and ‘cottage cheese thighs.’ Cellulite is embarrassing, it’s depressing, and it’s unhealthy. The bad part is you don’t even have to be fat to have cellulite. Even thin and slender people suffer from this malady. Regular fat settles in all parts of the body, but cellulite gravitates towards certain areas, like
-Back and inner areas of upper arms
Cellulite is a potential precursor of other health problems like varicose veins and broken blood vessels. A simple test will help detect cellulite. Press the tissue between thumb and finger, or between two palms. If cellulite is present, you will see ugly ‘orange peel’ designs on the skin.
Formation of cellulite:
Muscles in our body are covered with a padding of fatty connective tissue. This is surrounded by a liquid, which nourishes and helps remove waste. When all systems work in harmony, waste products that collect in this liquid are removed efficiently. But when waste begins building up in this liquid, it thickens and hardens into pockets. This forms grooves that look like “cottage cheese.”
Certain contributing factors help the buildup of cellulite:
-Lack of exercise
-Constipation and digestion problems
-Insufficient intake of water
-Poor eating habits
Cellulite formation can begin during teenage years. Although cellulite is not hereditary, incorrect eating habits are usually passed down from parents to children.
