"Is Cellulite A Skin Problem?"
The short answer is no.
Cellulite is also NOT:
- NOT something caused by excess body-fat
- NOT something caused by toxins or waste products trapped in the skin
- NOT a result of drinking coffee
- NOT a genetic trait passed down from your parents
- NOT a type of sub-dermal spongy tissue retaining excess body-fluids
However, most women don’t understand what cellulite really is, but they are willing to spend hundreds or even thousands of dollars to buy “anti-cellulite creams” or any other products as long as they can get rid of it fast.
The fact is that there are millions of women who tried this, and when one product can’t help them with cellulite, they are willing to pay another $30 or $50 or $100 on another “anti-cellulite” product. This happens again, and again, and again.
This vicious cycle happens because the anti-cellulite products are marketed very, very, cleverly. In addition, when women see them on the shelves they simply think it’s worth a shot spending $40 or $50 to buy a simple cream that might reduce her cellulite since she doesn't know any better.
They are willing to spend their hard earned money on some “wacky” things like liposuction and body wraps because they have been getting the wrong information.
They don’t know that most of the times, liposuction will actually worsen the appearance of cellulite.
It is because liposuction works by sucking the excess fat under the skin, and the problem is that you cannot get rid of the ugly dimples and shadows by removing something that is actually useful for the skin.
For women who are not overweight, liposuction will actually cause the cellulite to get worse because there will be less support from the fat underneath the skin.
Therefore, one key to really banish cellulite is this:
Addressing it at the source, which is the problem of muscle layers underneath the skin.
Generally, women don’t know that muscles can atrophy (they get mushy and softer) at any stage of life. When this happens, the skin layers lose the firm, smooth, and rounded base of support from the muscle layers underneath. Consequently, the orange-peel like dimples may appear.
For that reason, the proper cellulite removal is done by stimulating those muscles properly. Cellulite can be removed by reversing the cause of atrophy.
That’s it. No wacky creams and lotions required.
