There are perhaps not many things as or more frustrating and disconcerting than cellulite. “Orange-peel”, “cottage cheese” and the slightly bemusing “mattress phenomenon” are just some of the common and unflattering terms used to describe its appearance.

Here’s a read on what cellulite is about to help you better understand the condition and take either preventive or remedial action, depending on your current state.

Cellulite facts

A key contributing factor to the appearance of cellulite is poor blood flow or circulation. The reasons behind this are plenty, and they include:

• Genetics

• Sedentary lifestyle

• Lack of proper or healthy diet

• Ageing

The above does not need further elaboration, but perhaps an interesting point is that being in a deskbound job constitutes a “sedentary lifestyle”. So do remember to get up from your seat, move around and massage your legs to promote better circulation.

As far as ageing is concerned - even though it is a natural process - you can take steps by adopting healthy skincare practices, good dietary habits, and a lifestyle that includes physical activity (and mental exercises). These can help reduce its harsh effects not only when it comes to cellulite but your overall well-being in general.

There are varying grades or severity scale when it comes to cellulite, and they are characterised for your easier understanding (visualisation) as follows:

• Grade 1 (Mild) – “Orange peel” appearance

• Grade 2 (Moderate) – “Cottage cheese” appearance

• Grade 3 (Severe) – “Mattress” appearance

Cellulite myths

There is a copious amount of myth surrounding cellulite. Some of which include:

• It only happens to women

• Only overweight individuals are affected

• Cellulite brush (dry brushing), Lotions and topical skin firming creams are effective

[1] Men do get cellulite. The only (slight) difference being that more women tend to be more affected in comparison, and this is because women carry more fat around the thighs and hips. Additionally, women have less connective tissue, and these, together with the fat cells, are arranged vertically as opposed to a criss-cross structure like in men.

[2] People who are not overweight are affected by cellulite. It’s just that overweight individuals carry more fat, especially under the skin, resulting in more visible cellulite.

[3] As for lotions and topical creams, while those that contain retinol do provide temporary “camouflage” (that’s what they essentially do), but that’s about it. It’s not a long-term solution.

So what can you do? If you need to, do more research on cellulite if you think a more in-depth understanding would help.

Also, apart from preventive measures like adopting a healthy lifestyle and habits, the Amaris B. Clinic Anti-Cellulite treatment is something you may want to consider.
