Cellulite is a condition in which the skin appears to have areas with underlying fat deposits, giving it a dimpled, lumpy appearance.
It appears mostly on the bum and thighs, and usually starts to appear from late teenage years.
Cellulite is sometimes labelled as ‘orange peel skin’ due to its texture and appearance.
There are no clinical symptoms, but a microscopic study of cells from the area may show underlying physical damage.
The skin begins to show pastiness in colour, feels colder, and has less elasticity, in addition to underlying physical changes shown in the early stage.
There is visible roughness of the skin (like an orange peel) along with all the other signs apparent in the early and mild stages. Cellulite more commonly appears in woman, because they are more likely to have certain types of fat and connective tissue.
Having Cellulite doesn’t mean you are overweight as it can often affect thinner people too. If you are overweight, however, losing weight can reduce it.
Cellulite is more common among women than men. If other women in your family have cellulite, there’s a good chance you will too. Other factors that influence how much cellulite you have and how visible it is include:
– Poor diet
– Fad dieting
– Slow metabolism
– Lack of physical activity
– Hormone changes
– Higher levels of total body fat
– Thickness and colour of your skin
Eating healthily twith a diet that includes low fat foods such as fruits, vegetables, and fibre can help to avoid cellulite. Similarly, regular exercise, keeping a healthy body weight, and reducing stress can all help to prevent cellulite. In addition wearing thongs, shorts, or looser fitting undergarments can prevent cellulite that might form due to lack of blood flow. Additionally using a cellulite treatment twice a day together with a gently rubbing and massaging action to work the treated area will help to heat up the skin, stimulate blood and lymph flow and increase skin firmness and reduce the dimple effect.
