You are not alone! 90% of the female population world-wide suffers from cellulite.
Women have these honey comb-like fat cells in their connective fat tissues called as cellulites. These fat cells separate from the muscle and create a dimple like effect on the skin.
“There’s no cure,” says Neil Sadick, MD, a Manhattan dermatologist who recently reviewed the science behind some of the most popular treatments. “But there are definitely solutions out there that can help.”
This problem is not solvable with tanning salons, special skin creams, or regular exercise, because these treatments address the symptoms, not the root of the problem. To get these areas smooth there are several facts that you need to know first:
Facts About Cellulite
Fact 1: There’s no way to remove cellulite by using gels, creams, lotions, or other beauty products, it simply won’t work.
These may actually make your problem of cellulite worse. There are tons of creams on the market that are said to be “cellulite reducing creams” but there’s no way for these to actually work and you’ll end up spending tons of money on products that do absolutely nothing.
Fact 2: The cellulite you have isn’t some skin problem.
The problem is atrophied muscle fibers and you need to address this issue to remove cellulite from your body. The cellulite is a problem below the surface of the skin it’s not on the skin itself so creams and lotions do nothing to remove it.
Fact 3: The cellulite marks and bumps you have are not some genetic problem.
You don’t have to suffer from this problem for the rest of your life.
While two women in a family may have cellulite that looks the same the problem isn’t a genetic one but you may be led to believe that it is some sort of genetic problem. Some doctors even believe this to be true which only compounds the problem and the falsehood. If two women in a family have cellulite they just haven’t learned how to tone this area to remove the problem altogether.
3 Home Remedies
The truth is YOU CAN get rid of cellulite, regardless of your age – or when you began to notice it. Since cellulite is a structural issue (muscle) – it can be fixed with a few simple and unique body movements which target the cellulite areas.
1. Drink More Coffee
Caffeine is the classic cellulite-cream ingredient because it immediately tightens the skin, but studies have shown it works even better when used with retinol, says Francesca Fusco, M.D, an assistant clinical professor of dermatology at Mount Sinai School of Medicine. The thinking: Caffeine spikes circulation and temporarily shrinks fat cells, creating an immediate improvement and a lasting smoother appearance in about a month; collagen-boosting retinol plays the long game, repairing the structure of your cells over time (it can take up to 12 weeks to work).
2. Increase Your Heart Rate
One of the simplest ways to combat cellulite is to stimulate the lymphatic system. This is because the lymphatic system serves as a drainage system to rid the body of toxins and if running efficiently prevents the fibrous tissue under the skin from hardening and therefore causing the dreaded dimpled cellulite effect.
Get exercising and breathing heavier. It really is that simple since studies show exercise can increase lymph activity by 10 to 30 times its activity at rest.
3. Fight It With Fat
Science shows eating fat could help with cellulite. Yes, really. But not just any fat – a special kind of fatty acid known as CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) that’s found in beef.
In a study conducted in Beverly Hills, California, 60 females were given CLA for 60 days and ‘in as many as 75% of the women, the appearance of the skin improved significantly, and thigh circumference was reduced by an average of 0.88 inch
