Let's talk cellulite

And also let’s keep it real, I’m very self conscious about myself, I know it’s not much but always makes me feel uncomfortable and insecure. I do what I can to keep it under control and I know I need to be more chill about but … Does anyone relate?

Some facts:

  • Cellulite occurs when underlying fat deposits begin to push through layers of collagen fibers, or connective tissue, under the skin.

  • Cellulite appears due to hormonal changes, genetic influence and, a fundamental factor, the LIFESTYLE.

  • It affects approximately 90% of the female population.

  • If your fat percentage is high it will be more noticeable, but women of all shape and sizes have it, even thin and fit women.

First of all. Don’t waste your money.

Despite what you might read on their labels, no topical creams—prescription or over-the-counter—have been shown to permanently reduce the appearance of cellulite.

What to do:

  • Strength training. Building muscle mass it is going to make a significant impact on how does dimples look, If your muscles are more defined, your skin will look smoother. So start focusing on strength training now

  • Running or other forms of cardio can help keep weight off, which may reduce the appearance of dimples and dents. But to really smooth out your skin, you've got to strength train.

  • Eat healthy. If you really want to make it go away (as much as you can) you need to eat very healthy and stay away from foods linked to water retention and weight gain: sugar, flours (high in carbs low in fiber), sodas, trans fats, saturated fats, foods with high sodium content, fried food and alcohol.

  • Stay hydrated, both by drinking water and by eating plenty of foods with high water content (like fruit and veggies), this will keep your connective tissue strong and supple and help with water retention making your skin look smoother.

Once cellulite appears it doesn’t completely go away. But making this changes will definitely help a lot!
