What is cellulite and how does it form?
Cellulitis is a term to describe the appearance of bumpy looking fat on the body. There are three layers of fat in the body. The topmost layer close to the skin is called cellulite. It is also termed as orange peel skin.
When the swollen fat cells press on the connective tissues that surround them, the bumpy fat becomes visible on the skin.
As you grow older and your skin becomes thinner the cellulite becomes more prominent.
Cellulite is a genetic condition. So if your parents have it, you are most likely to get it. If you take it as an early warning signal and start taking action before it appears on your body then you can avoid it.
If you are overweight or slim, your chances of getting cellulite are the same. So, don't be complacent if you have a slim body.
There are two types of cellulites. One is called lose cellulite and the other one is hard cellulite.
The loose cellulitis spreads across large areas and is easy to remove, however the hard cellulite which gets strongly attached to the muscles is more difficult to remove.
Exercise can help but does not remove cellulite.
Proper diet and hydration are the real solutions to get rid of cellulite.
A diet rich in Vitamin C and Essential Fatty Acids (ETF) and antioxidants is a suitable diet for getting rid of cellulite.
