Cellulite is a normal fat under the skin that looks like dents or pits
. Wrinkling is caused when fat presses on the connective tissue, causing the skin acquires a characteristic "cheesy" or appearance of "orange peel".
It is believed that up to 90 percent of women and 10% of men at some point in life may face cellulite. In women, it occurs most often before menopause.
Hormonal changes at this time, particularly the decline in estrogen levels may coincide with changes in blood flow and a decrease in collagen production.Increasing the number of fat cells (and their size) in combination with a thinner layer of collagen can promote the appearance of tubercles on the thighs, buttocks, stomach and even knees.
But for cellulite all ages are equal. It can even occur in adolescence and are able to affect both thin and overweight people.
Technically, it's not dangerous – well, nothing, but for some people it can be aesthetically unappealing.
The beauty industry has made a fortune selling creams, lotions and potions, laser treatment and other types of "healing" from this aesthetic problem, but the fight against cellulite requires a more substantial approach, including physical exercise.
Exercises to combat cellulite1. Squats with legs wide apart
Usually you put your feet shoulder width apart, toes forward. BUT for this exercise, stand with your feet slightly wider that the socks were deployed to the walls: the left toe to the left wall, the right toe to the right wall. Body position and technique — as in normal squats.
But when you get up to the standing position, squeeze the inner thighs.
Try to make the movement of the buttocks and slightly inside to bring the pelvis up in order to work inner and outer thighs.2. Squats with fitness ball
Stand with your feet hip width apart, hold the ball over your head. Take the hips back and down, together with the upper part of the body. Dip the ball at shoulder level in front of him.
Although you are careful to keep the ball in front of him, try to keep knees behind toes and chest elevated. Exhale, return to standing position and again lift the ball over your head.3. The bridge
Lie on your back, arms down at sides, bend legs at the knees. Leaning on your heels, raise your hips up toward the ceiling.

Doctor of osteopathic medicine, Dr. Lionel Bissoon, author of "the cellulite Cure", believes that cellulite is the problem is relatively modern, which began in the late 70-ies, partly because women began to lead a much more sedentary lifestyle.
In an interview with "Scientific America", he said:"I've traveled in developing countries and photographing local women. When I photographed these women (who have little or no cellulite), you can see what they are doing, and what they eat.They eat all natural foods, and getting out of bed, constantly moving. They wash clothes in the river.
Water (in industrialized countries) means that you need to get up and go to the fridge or faucet. Women in developing countries go to the river and returned with a burden".10,000 steps a day is one of the strategies of an active lifestyle, especially if you lead a sedentary, office life. This is a basic requirement for optimum health, the same as drinking enough water every day. The third variable of cellulite: linen?
Bisson believes that a change of underwear models is also connected with the growth of cellulite in developed countries. Thick stretch fabric on the back surface of the body damages the blood circulation and the cellulite often appears where wear elastic underwear. Wearing more casual underwear or panties "Thong" can be one of the most important and available preventive strategies. In an interview with the magazine "Scientific America", he explains "To 1970-80 years, when I started to change diet and activity and underwear, cellulite problem arose.In 20-ies women wore long skirts and the underwear was loose almost like pajamas. Cellulite always occurs where wear elastic underwear, aliprosessi invisible line where the cellulite is, you will see a line of panties. I tell people: if you can't afford the treatment, then the most important preventative tool — to change the style of underwear — wearing models "Tong".Other natural strategies for cellulite
If you are wondering what else can help to keep the skin smooth and without cellulite, you can try the following:Rubbing a dry brush
Rubbing the skin with a dry brush can help to soften hard fat deposits under the skin and distribute them more evenly. It also improves circulation, helping prevent and reduce the appearance of cellulite
It is reported that rubbing the skin dry brushing helps to reduce cellulite by eliminating toxins that can destroy connective tissue, although some believe that this effect is temporary (and mostly skin the result is a raised, tender and somewhat swollen). But, in any case, the damage from this method will, moreover, rubbing of the skin with a dry brush has many other advantages.Grapefruit essential oil
One of the most recognized benefits of grapefruit essential oil and other citrus oils is their positive effect on the lymphatic system,
which plays a role in the mechanism of detoxification of the body. The use of grapefruit oil will help to increase the activity of the lymph glands, thus preventing problems such as poor circulation and cellulite.
To try it for yourself, mix one to two drops of grapefruit essential oil with a carrier oil and massage into cellulite areas.
To other healthy lifestyle habits are the quality of sleep and reduce stress
– they help to maintain a low level of cortisol in the blood. Cortisol is a stress hormone. If its level is elevated, then muscle tissue is depleted and fat is retained, which leads to stubborn cellulite. published
