What is cellulite?
Generally, people will say that cellulite is a condition when there is fat or toxin trapped under the skin. However, there are also others who have absolutely no idea about what cellulite is.
The truth is that the word “cellulite” came up several decades ago from a European beauty spa. It is not a type of disease. The word “cellulite” first came up only to describe the condition when there are dimples and lumpy appearance on certain body parts like buttocks, abdomen, and legs.
The beauty spa then started to make money by marketing various products and services they claimed to be able to get rid of cellulite.
Cellulite is actually a problem of muscle structure that you can prevent and get rid of. If you want to banish cellulite, knowing the factors causing it is the first necessary step.
So what causes cellulite?
Obviously, genetic factor is not the main cause, even though the level of one’s muscle tone can be genetic. Also, anyone can have cellulite, women or men, young or old, even though women are more prone to it (about 90%).
For a young girl with cellulite, this can be caused by the muscle structure under the cellulite that has the
|skin with cellulite versus normal skin|
For older women, they will also experience muscular atrophy during the aging process. So when the muscles get weaker and one does not regularly exercise, the muscle layers under the troubled area can cause cellulite.
So, the cause of cellulite in younger or older women is the same: weak muscle layers.
So how do you get rid of cellulite naturally?
Obviously, using “magic cream” won’t solve the problem of weak muscles, and so won’t pills to flush out toxins from the skin. Many people just want an instant way to get something.
If you really want to get rid of cellulite for good, you should know the appropriate way.
To solve muscle problem, one thing you can do is to practice the proper cellulite exercise regularly, so you can make your muscle fiber layers become stronger and firmer. To make your exercise more effective, getting the proper nutrition for the muscles can also help (instead of doing a diet to lose weight).
