Lets talk about Cellulite….

What is cellulite?

You know those horrible bumps that start appearing under your skin and it begins to look like cottage cheese or orange peel. The worst part is that it can appear on your upper thighs and arms and some other places and it does not matter what size or shape you are, or even how old you are… you wake up one day and it’s there! Kind of like the aliens have landed and replaced your beautiful smooth skin. So here is how it works. Underlying fat deposits push through connective tissue causing it to pucker. Diet, exercise and water all have a role to play in how severe cellulite can appear.  Of course there is also the hormones in food and hereditary factors. If it is hereditary, it can still be reduced.

What causes cellulite?

Cellulite can appear due to hormones, genetics, slow metabolism, fad dieting and more commonly due to diets where there is too many fats, carbohydrates and salt, and not enough fibre in the diet. There is also the lifestyle reasons to take into account such as smokers, people who are inacive, and perhaps office workers who sit for long periods of time.

How can I prevent cellulite?

Eat healthy, exercise, get plenty of fibre, have lots of low fat foods and veges.

What can I do to improve/remove the cellulite I have?

Eat healthy, exercise, get plenty of fibre, have lots of low fat foods and veges. Having regular massages can also help to soften the fatty tissue which can then be broken down. Doing regular body brushing ie a loofah in the shower each day can help stimulate the circulation so it can help you move the bulge. Or you can use some great products to help you.  We have a special on our new Guam Treatments. The image below shows an actual before and after photo of a client after using Guam.
