Cya Cellulite

Cellulite, aka orange peel skin, occurs when fat deposits beneath the skin push against connective tissue, causing skin to appear uneven and bumpy, often appearing on your toosh, thighs, and tummy. Although our wiggles, jiggles and bum dimples are beautiful, cellulite is a common concern for many women, especially those in the 18-34 age range. Despite what some may think, it is not a sign of being overweight or unhealthy, although these things can make it more noticeable. In fact, even women who live an active lifestyle and have a healthy diet can develop cellulite.

So, what causes it?
Here's the culprits behind cellulite, how they contribute to it's development and visibility, plus the role lymph fluid can play:

  • Genetics: Unfortunately, genetics play a big role in whether or not you will develop cellulite. If your mother or grandmother had cellulite, chances are you will too.
  • Hormones: Hormonal changes such as those during puberty, pregnancy, and menopause can increase the likelihood of developing cellulite - this as well as the different distributions of fat and muscle mass, is why it is more common in women than men.
  • Poor circulation: Poor blood circulation is another contributing factor - when blood flow is restricted, toxins can build up in the body. Additionally, poor lymphatic circulation can also contribute as the lymphatic system is responsible for removing waste and toxins from the body, but when it becomes congested or sluggish, lymph fluid can accumulate and contribute to cellulite.
  • Lack of exercise: While exercise alone cannot completely prevent cellulite, it can help reduce the appearance of it. Lack of exercise can reduce blood flow and lymphatic circulation, weaken muscle tone, increase fat deposits, and decrease collagen production, making cellulite more noticeable.
  • Diet: A diet high in processed foods and sugar can also contribute as these foods can cause water retention and inflammation in the body. Additionally, consuming an inadequate amount of nutrients, such as vitamin C, can also contribute to poor lymphatic function and the formation of cellulite.
  • Dehydration: When you are dehydrated, your lymphatic system can become less efficient, leading to a buildup of lymph fluid and therefore contribute to cellulite. Make sure to drink plenty of waster!
  • Smoking: Smoking can damage the connective tissue in the body, which plays a role in cellulite development. Additionally, it can constrict blood vessels and decrease lymphatic circulation, making it more difficult for the body to remove toxins and waste.

While these factors can contribute to the development of cellulite, they are not the only causes. If you are concerned about the appearance of cellulite, it's important to speak with your healthcare provider to determine the best course of action.

Now, let's get to the good part - how to say cya to cellulite:
Maintaining a healthy lifestyle through diet and exercise can help reduce it's appearance, support proper lymphatic function, tone muscles and tighten skin.
There are also a variety of health and beauty treatments and tools, as well as skincare products that assist to diminish cellulite, stimulate blood circulation, promote collagen production and give you smoother-looking skin.
