By Faeza

ABOUT 85 percent of women have cellulite. Whether large or small, young, old or gymsculpted, the vast majority of women are affected by dimpled thighs and hips.

Eating healthy, low fat foods such as fruits, vegetables, and fibre, exercising regularly,

maintaining a healthy weight and reducing stress are recommended to control the

development of cellulite

Causes of underlying fat deposits

HORMONES

Hormones have an effect on cellulite development as they encourage the body to

build up and store fat.

GENETICS

Gender, race, slow metabolism and distribution of fat underneath the skin may

incline an individual to particular characteristics associated with cellulite.

DIET

People who eat too much fat, carbohydrates, or salt and too little fibre are likely

to have greater amounts of cellulite in their bodies.

LIFESTYLE FACTORS

People who smoke, do not exercise and those who sit or stand in one position for

long periods are likely to have cellulite.

CLOTHES

Tight underwear, pantyhose and clothes may limit blood flow and

result in the development of cellulite.

Cellulite remedies that work

MASSAGE

Massaging your body is a simple way to reduce the appearance of cellulite. During the

massage, the fat in your body is broken up by the motion.

EAT SOME FISH

The good fats that you get from eating fish will strengthen your skin cells. This will make your skin strong enough to resist cellulite.

USE A CELLULITE CREAM

One of the fastest ways to reduce cellulite is by using a cellulite reduction cream.

SKIN BRUSHING

Get a good dry skin brush or stone to brush your skin. Dry skin brushing

stimulates the body’s circulation so that it can cleanse itself of the toxins which

cause cellulite.

MIX COFFEE WITH A LITTLE OLIVE OIL

With this mix you will have your own home-made cellulite cream. Coffee is

used as a cellulite remedy because it’s a stimulant. Caffeine increases the circulation

and extracts water from the body, which improves the appearance of cellulite. Also,

caffeine’s stimulant properties can firm and smooth the skin in a similar manner

as exercise, reducing the appearance of cellulite.
