Knowing how to get rid of cellulite naturally is a top question that I receive as a women’s fitness and health expert. It is no doubt that with our busy, sedentary lifestyles and on-the-go fast food diets, that weight gain in women is more abundant now than ever before.
And consequently, this increase in weight gain for women has led to increase in the unsightly dimpled-skin known as cellulite.
What is Cellulite?
Cellulite, or sometimes known as cellulitis, is a condition of the skin where the subcutaneous (beneath the skin) pockets of the hypodermal layer become oversaturated with adipose tissue (fat).
The unsightly dimpled skin is the result of the fat pockets being overstretched, and the connective tissue walls, which are still connected to the upper layers of the skin cannot hold the fat any longer so the smooth skin becomes dimpled.
To explain this, imagine a room filled completely from top to bottom with baseballs, which will represent fat cells, and the ceiling is a tight sheet of plastic wrap.
Now imagine that instantly these baseballs expand to the size of basketballs. The walls and ceiling of the room will begin to expand and create dimpling on the ceiling, as it stretches to hold the larger baskeballs. Understanding this analogy is key in knowing how to get rid of cellulite.
3 Steps How to Get Rid of Cellulite Naturally
- Increase Weight Loss. The main thing that you can do help eliminate cellulite is to lose fat in these unsightly areas. Now, some women can lose weight, however the cellulite tends to stay. The key is however, to target the affected fat pockets beneath the skin.
- Perform Targeted, Body Specific Exercises. As with weight loss, if you are trying to get rid of cellulite naturally, you should try to target your exercises to these specific, cellulite laden areas. Unfortunately though, most women do not know which exercises are best for accomplishing this.
- Avoid Expensive Non-natural Spa Treatments. This may seem like a quick, easy solution to the problem because it is. Similar to surgery to remove unwanted fat cells, getting surgical and spa treatments using non-natural cellulite removal methods will solve the problem temporarily, but you could increase your results ten-fold and save a lot of money by changing a few habits.
In conclusion, follow these steps to know how to get rid of cellulite naturally. Yes, it may involve a little effort, but most women are already doing exercises and eating properly for the most part.
You will just need to change a few things to put your cellulite reduction in overdrive.
