can you get rid of cellulite?
what is cellulite?
Cellulite is the bumpy, lumpy texture on your skin. It commonly manifests in the thigh and buttocks area; and, unfortunately, it is more common in women than it is in men. Approximately 90% of women between the ages of 25-60 experience cellulite. Only 10% of men experience it.
What causes Cellulite?
The exact cause of cellulite is unknown, but many experts agree that genetics, weight loss, a sedentary or stressful lifestyle, and hormones/hormonal contraceptives are all factors. Cellulite also gets worse during times of high estrogen, especially for women after puberty.
Beneath the skin is a natural layer of fat and connective fibrous bands called ‘septae.’ When there is irregular tension on these bands, it causes the fat surrounding them to bulge. This is what creates the dimples, puckers, and dents in your skin.
There are a lot of treatment options out there that claim to cure your cellulite. Many websites suggest dry brushing for a cheap cellulite treatment option. Or suggest moisturizing, using a coffee scrub, or using bottle tan as ways you can cure your cellulite at home. While these suggestions may help reduce the appearance of your cellulite, they are temporary and must be repeated in order to keep up the results. Since cellulite is a structural issue, these ‘solutions’ are only going to help camouflage your cellulite but will be unable to create a lasting solution.
