Cellulite, a condition where the skin has a dimpled appearance (typically on the stomach, buttocks, and thighs), is a result of the fat cells pressing up against the vertical connective tissue (or fibrous bands) beneath your epidermis. This creates a bulging of the cells, causing the bands to pulled and pushed against the bands, resulting in the dimpling the skin.
Follow these 5 Ways To Get Rid Of Cellulite:
1. Eat a Healthy Diet
A healthy diet plays an important role in keeping the signs of cellulite at bay, and moderation is key, Engelman says. Eating food that’s high in salt, for example, will cause your fat cells to swell, making your cellulite more pronounced. She suggests watching your sodium intake while eating plenty of fiber and whole grain foods (such as bran and oat cereals), since they help to remove waste and toxins from the intestinal tract, as well as fruits and vegetables.
2. Drink Plenty of Water
“You want to stay adequately hydrated because in a dehydrated state, cellulite can appear worse,” Engelman adds. “Dehydration can the skin to become thinner and weaken, and when the skin is thin, it tends to show cellulite more.”
3. Exercise Regularly
Since cellulite is fat, excess weight can contribute to it. So, if minimizing the appearance of cellulite is your goal, it’s important to engage in physical exercise like walking, jogging, swimming, yoga, etc., several times a week
4. Try Compression Tights
Whether or not you’re wearing a swimsuit, form-fitting clothes — especially Spandex — can highlight the appearance of cellulite in a real way.
So, if you usually notice dimpling whilst wearing workout tights, opt for compression leggings, which help smooth the lumpy appearance. Compression tights also help keep your circulation moving back up to your heart, keeping fluid from pooling and exacerbating the look of your cellulite.
5. Massage Your Body Dimples
These body massagers incorporate multiple nubs on them that allow you to massage the fat pockets (aka cellulite), stimulating circulation and breaking up fluids beneath your skin, encouraging a smoother appearance over time. “Daily body brushing and massaging can also jumpstart lymphatic drainage, which helps to eliminate toxins that can accumulate in the fat layer, which can result in inflammation and ultimately worsen the look of your cellulite,” says Engelman.
