The fatty tissue formed in honeycombs presses against the connective tissue under the skin, which gives the dimpled appearance.
Cellulite affects not only the overweight and obese people. Even the skinny and slim are also affected, though being overweight aggravates this condition.
More women are affected by this condition than men because of the difference in collagen structure. The collagen structure of most men is firmer compared to women whose body is designed to better store fats.
Although various treatments are being commercially advertised for the treatment of this condition, none of these treatments are scientifically proven to be effective.
Cellulite is more common in women who do not move enough and tend to neglect their diet or whose diet is not balanced. Women in developing countries usually have less cellulite because they work and move a lot. These women, especially in Asia, eat calorie-rich foods for breakfast, but they are able to burn them because they work a lot and move.
In an industrialized country, women tend to move less and spend most of their time sitting in their office at work. The physical activity diminishes, so that fats are accumulated. That is why the need for exercise is a must in reducing the appearance of these bumps and unaesthetic appearance.
First and foremost you need to improve your blood circulation.
Proper physical exercise plays a big role in reducing bumps in your body. Some stretching and muscle building exercises can help as well. Move more. Refrain from sitting and standing for a long time, and change your position from time to time.
Pay attention to a balanced diet. Stay away from greasy and salty foods. High fiber foods are better. Include more fruits and vegetables in your diet. Eating fruits and vegetables not only makes your skin look and feel better, it also makes you healthier. Maintain a balanced diet, exercise regularly and change your lifestyle to reduce cellulite and keep it from coming back.
