Cellulite is simply fat.
Cellulite is hereditary.
Having cellulite means you are overweight.
It gets worse as you get older.
Drinking water will improve cellulite.
False. It won’t fix the condition. Most of us are more dehydrated than we think and it’s the outer organ, the skin, that goes without – as the water you do have is used by the vital internal organs first.
Exercise will smooth out cellulite.
True. Although it won’t get rid of it, as even athletes can have cellulite. the fact that working out improves circulation, removes excess fluid, and tones muscles mean that skin will look smoother, regardless of the cellulite.
To stimulate your circulation and boost lymphatic drainage, you need to think of your diaphragm and stomach muscles as a piston, so you need to aerobically exercise your whole body for around half an hour up to five times a week for best results.
A healthy diet will prevent cellulite.
Not really. of course, a healthy diet is always a good idea, but it doesn’t mean that you won’t get cellulite at all.
Anti-oxidants neutralize free radicals, which are implicated in the cause of cellulite and improve micro-circulation. Essential fatty acids like Omega 3 and 6 are also anti-inflammatory and reduce cells sticking together.
Lots of colored fruits and vegetables like broccoli and blueberries along with fish oil in your diet while avoiding junk food may help prevent cellulite.
Liposuction is the only answer.
False. Even if you can afford the hefty price tag, it is your last port of call for shifting areas of stubborn fat deposits and it may not even remove that cottage cheese-like cellulite. In fact, when done improperly by inexperienced practitioners, it is a traumatic procedure that could impair your circulatory and lymphatic system. It has also left many women with fewer inches but more lumps and bumps than before.
Lifestyle, diet, exercise, body brushing and massage with contouring products that contain marine extracts, caffeine or juniper oil may help minimize the appearance of cellulite. Read the free report on how to kill cellulite.
