When it comes to the appearance of our legs, thighs, and buttocks one of the most noticeable things for others to is how they look. It can make us feel self-conscious and ashamed to show off our body. With summer in full swing there is no time to let cellulite get in the way of flaunting that new swimsuit or outfit. Cellulite is one of those things that can be the subject of ridicule as it is associated with negative remarks and criticisms.  Among the criticism are works like “cottage cheese”, “fat”, and “gross”. Cellulite is quite common especially if you do not move around enough or get enough exercise, but there are ways you can help reduce and prevent really bad cellulite from taking over your beautiful legs.

What is Cellulite?

Cellulite is something often ridiculed, but people do not understand where it comes from. So what is cellulite exactly? Cellulite is a result of several factors to include sedentary lifestyle, heredity, hormones, gender (although it can affect both men and women it seems to be more prevalent in women), the distribution of body fat, and your age. It is marked by a dimpled or lumpy appearance on your skin (for example the way an orange or lemon looks like on the outside). There are many theories as to how cellulite comes to form but it appears that it is a result of the interaction between the connective tissues between the layers of the skin and fat. Cellulite occurs due to lack of connective tissue and the skin’s inability to firmly and smoothly lay over this tissue. When skin has poor blood flow and decreased collagen it becomes thinner and less able to cover over connective tissues allowing fat to protrude between the connections and giving the skin that uneven appearance.

Ways Cellulite is Treated

Although it seems difficult to tackle, cellulite is quite treatable to help reduce the appearance of dimples and lumps. Treatments range from lotions and moisturizers to more invasive procedures. Although some of the treatment methods seem promising and do help reduce the appearance of cellulite they can be quite costly over time and may not completely resolve your cellulite. When you read through each treatment method that is used, some are either not proven to make much of a difference or there is a treatment for cellulite at the expense of bruising or other damage/stress to your skin.

One of the best ways to treat cellulite is to prevent it from taking over. Moving around and exercising can make such a nice difference as this will help promote blood flow and keep fat tissue from just sitting idle. Additionally, watching the foods you eat and not smoking are lifestyle changes you can make for a positive impact on your skin.

Another simple alternative to cellulite is to prevent and reduce the appearance by using a high-end product like DermalMD Cellulite Serum. It encourages the growth of healthy cells and encourage the production of collagen and elastin so that skin can become more firm and smooth and cover your tissues in such a manner. The serum works to improve the health of your skin by providing nutrients and does so without drying your skin or incurring additional damage. It appears to make a positive difference as it is rated positively and is a cost-effective alternative to its more invasive counterparts.
