The truth is that cellulitis is not uncommon in men, but unfortunately women are more likely to suffer from it.
You may not notice that thin women are not immune from getting cellulitis, so it is not just fat related. Hormonal changes or imbalances are a further cause of cellulitis. Water retention is also an influence. But there are multiple things you can do to get rid of cellulitis.
It’s actually easiest to get rid of cellulitis if it’s fat related. You can get far by adopting nutritional changes and exercising on a regular basis. In other words, lower your carbohydrates intake. Especially from bread, cookies, pasta, donut as they are also high in fat. You should really increase your fresh fruit intake as well: apples, strawberries, kiwis and grapefruits are fantastic at encouraging the fat melting process and they are loaded with the vitamins, minerals and fiber needed to win the battle against cellulite.
If your cellulitis problem is founded from hormonal changes or hormonal imbalances, there are great things you can do to help. Exercise and good nutrition are a great starting place. Another tip is to use a cellulite cream and massage the affected spots with a circular movement that starts from the bottom and works upwards. Do this after your morning shower before bed.
Another recommendation is to massage your cellulite patches with bath gloves. This will encourage your circulation and your skin will become smoother and more toned. If you have the funds, another tip is to get a wrap treatment. This is a super procedure and the results are instantaneous. However this is something to get done in a salon and needs to be performed regularly in order to get results.
If your cellulite is a result of water retention, you should get away from salt and salty foods such as pretzels and potato chips (which are also high in fat so should be avoided anyway). It’s also essential to drink a lot of water and tea. This will help pass the extra water you retain, even if you have to make go to the bathroom more regularly. Massage your legs with bath gloves in upwards movements from the ankles and wear elastic pantyhose that put a little pressure on the entire leg.
This will encourage your circulation as well as the appearance of your skin. This is best done alongside an exercise program and a healthy diet. If you can afford it, get a professional massage every fortnight to help melt away that cellulite. Endermology (a special massage done with a machine) is also useful but requires at least 10 sessions in order to start seeing results and is rather more expensive.
