Around 93% of women have cellulite, making this a skin issue that is much more common than you would imagine.
What causes it?
It is caused when the fat deep beneath your skin is pushed against the web-like structure of your skin’s connective tissues, causing them to bulge through. Cellulite is actually genetic, although weight gain does make this issue much more visible.
So, what can you do about it?
Unfortunately, not too much. You can’t completely clear it, but you can reduce its appearance.
Building up your muscles will help, as this provides your skin with extra support underneath, minimizing the amount that the pockets of fat bulge through.
Dry brushing can also help to redistribute these fat pockets and minimize their visibility. This is something that is so quick and easy to do, only taking a few minutes each day. Dry brushing also has a number of other benefits, from mildly exfoliating the skin to boosting your circulation.
Of course, there are also plenty of anti-cellulite creams you can choose from, but these will not make that much of a difference.
Dealing with various skin issues can often feel incredibly challenging, but it is important to persevere when seeking out a treatment, as leaving your skin problem untouched will likely only cause it to worsen. Whether you are dealing with cellulite, dark circles or fine lines, these tips will help you to bring your skin to a healthier and happier state.
