The accumulation of fatty deposits under the skin gives an unsightly appearance.
Cellulite can affect anyone and all body types, but is especially present in women. Several causes are responsible for its appearances such as hormonal imbalance, genes or even stress. If you don’t know what cellulite is – it is actually a lumpy substance that makes it look like the skin on the thighs and buttocks like an orange peel. Although its name may sound like a disease, cellulite is nothing, but normal fatty deposits under the skin. This fat has a bumpy appearance because it is pushed against the connective tissues within the skin, causing the skin located above it to wrinkle. Although cellulite is not harmful, many women are keen on knowing ideas that can help them as the solution for getting rid of this and having smooth thighs.
Three Phenomena that Promote the Appearance of Cellulite
The Saturation of Fat Cells (Adipocytes)
Eating too much fat, sweets, salty that contribute to the production of fat or help in storing them under your skin, are the main culprits. Also, causes like stress, genetic factors, or hormones can lead to an internal imbalance. The result is a saturation of adipocytes , i.e. fat cells present in the subcutaneous tissue (lower layer of skin) and cellulite formation, which gives this aspect of unsightly skin.
The dimples are caused by water retention problem and cellulite occur when the internal fluids are not properly drained by the system lymphatic. This should normally help the body eliminate all toxins. One symptom of water retention is, for example, swelling of the limbs. The water is then trapped inside the fat cells resulting in cellulite.
The adipocytes compaction phenomenon and collagen fibers (glycation) is the final stage of cellulite, also known as fibrosis. It can cause pain when the nerves are compressed and undergo inflammation. If pain appears whenever you make a pinch at the area affected, you have a fibrosed cellulite.
How to Treat Cellulite Naturally?
Eat Healthy And Exercise Sufficiently
This may seem obvious, but a balanced diet rich in antioxidant helps prevent the appearance of orange peel. Overuse of fruits and vegetables, which are also rich in flavonoids and excellent for promoting good circulation. We all know, the practice of regular physical activity can prevent the appearance of cellulite. A regular use of moisturizing is also essential and for that it is recommended to drink 1.5 liters of water per day. You can also consume herbal plants with draining and stimulating properties.
Self-Massage to Effectively Remove The Orange Peel
The secret to eliminate cellulite lies in self-massage. We often speak of the method of “rolling massage” which is to pinch the bead on the treatment area and roll it between his fingers and thumb. This action will help to stimulate the lymphatic system and help eliminate toxins.
These creams are able to dissolve fat and smooths the skin. There is no scientific evidence that such creams are one hundred percent effective against cellulite, and for some people had negative and harmful experiences. Their apparent effect on the superficial lipodystrophy may be due to a narrowing of blood vessels, and the fact that they force the water from the skin, which could be dangerous for people with circulatory problems. Moreover, the aminophylline can cause an allergic reaction in some people. So, you need to very careful while using such creams.
Massage and Spa Treatments
Massages and other beauty treatments can have a temporary impact on the appearance orange peel skin, but they do not have the ability to eliminate cellulite. Any effect is short-lived and probably due to the removal of excess fluid (fluid retention). The lipocavitation the lymphatic drainage, the Hydro-Jet and rolling massage are examples of massage can contribute to improve the aesthetics of an orange skin and combat overweight. Endermologie and acoustic wave therapy are also other types of treatment acting skin contact (massage with a special machine in both cases).
Many say that Liposuction is a surgery to remove body fat deposits, but let me tell you, Liposuction is designed to remove deep fat and not cellulite (which is just under the skin). The American Academy of Dermatology warns that liposuction may actually worsen the appearance of this fatty deposit, creating more depressions in the skin. Regarding the anti-cellulite products to use, I recommend you pay attention to creams and anti-cellulite gels found in shops.Their composition is generally not optimal because they contain very few assets that can reach deep areas affected. It will also be vigilant on the list of ingredients because it contains chemical preservatives.
