Cellulite is genetic. If your mom and sisters have it there are high chances you could start to develop it as well. The lumpy bumpy look of cellulite is caused when fat presses against the vertical connective tissues in our thighs and legs. This creates the bulging look and dimple effect. An example would be like your skin pushing through a fishnet stocking. This is how your fat is pushing through your skin’s connective tissues. Even though cellulite is genetic there are ways to reduce cellulite. Read on for the best ways to truly get rid of cellulite.
The cellulite in your legs is caused by pure fat that can not contain itself and has resorted to breaking through your skin’s connective tissue. Eliminate fat from your diet to totally get rid of cellulite. Avoiding fat will mean that your cellulite will not have anymore new fat coming in to add to the problem. A fat free diet is also a healthier diet for your whole body especially your heart. It is also recommended to use a collagen production vitamin. This type of vitamin will help your collagen. This is the connective tissue that keeps your skin firm and tight. By aiding your collagen through supplements you will help keep it strong and help it repair from the damage of the fat pulling through it.
Drink plenty of water. If you increase your daily intake of water, your body will begin to shed its excess fat, including the fat stored as cellulite. The water will also help strengthen the collagen in your skin, helping to reduce the lumpy look.
Shake your body and shake off the cellulite. Massages have become popular and are advertised to reduce cellulite. The best way to really reduce it is to shake your body with exercise. Running, jumping jacks and dancing are great ways to get your body in total motion. This will create blood flow to every part of your body and will take down the cellulite. This will also tighten your muscles and repair the connective tissue that has been damaged by the cellulite pulling through. Exotic dances, like belly dancing, are a great way to get a total lower body fat burning workout. Here are more tips on dancing for weight loss.
