We all know those supposed anti-cellulite remedies that claim to smooth out our cottage cheese thighs as if by magic! But our skin needs more than just creams to get rid of those lumps. Your best bet? Picking up a sport and leading an active lifestyle. Read on and get moving!
Cellulite is a natural phenomenon. Genetics, lifestyle and hormonal imbalance can all play a role in cellulite’s appearance.
Be warned: no woman is immune to it. 90% of women, even thinner ones, have had cellulite on their thighs, butts and bellies. Having orange peel skin doesn’t necessarily have anything to do with being overweight.
How does cellulite form? It is when your blood circulation is compressed, leading to inefficient draining of water and toxins from your body. This engorgement creates changes in the structure of the adipose tissues (where fat is stored). Then comes the lumpy texture on the skin.
Begin your workout
While your weight doesn’t itself cause cellulite, an active lifestyle helps limit its appearance.
Think aerobics! For a workout to help fight cellulite, you need to increase your heart rate. This stimulates blood flow, bringing oxygen to your cells and helping lymphatic drainage. Note: muscle-training exercises don’t reduce the appearance of cellulite. However, muscle-toning during a cardio workout can refine your silhouette.
