Information relating to Body Cellulite.
What is Cellulite? Do Cellulite remedies work to remove it? What can I do to conceal or lesson the appearance of Cellulite?
If you have cellulite you know what it looks like. It's the dimpled fatty tissue in the body that cries out to be fed energy (calories). The more an individual weighs, the more noticeable the cellulite.
If you suffer from cellulite (and who doesn't) (okay, besides Cindy Crawford and Goldie Hawn) (my role models) take heart that it's an extremely common cosmetic problem.
Try to think of cellulite as a sponge whose pockets hold matter. Or, because the skin is dimpled - think of it as having more dimples than at times, you know what to do with. And please keep in mind that while it may be unsightly, it's not the end of the world - and there are things that you can do to lessen its effect.
The most effective thing that you can do is to lose pounds if you are overweight. Just losing 10% of those excess pounds can produce stellar results in the areas of the dimpled skin.
Who Has Cellulite?
Everyone. Cellulite finds harbor on people who are both normal weight and overweight, but that is of little consolation when one is faced with swimsuit or short-shorts season and when one is experiencing an issue with very noticeable cellulite.
Cellulite collects in many areas on the body but the most common problem areas are the upper thighs and buttocks. The abdominal area as well as the upper arm area are other hot-spots for unsightly cellulite woes.
How to Lessen the Appearance of Cellulite
We've already mentioned the most effective method for ridding cellulite - losing weight.
Targeted exercise focused on the trouble spots may also be of help because toning fills out muscles and assists in concealing the dimpled skin. Weights will provide a much more effective exercise routine than one without; to demonstrate the impact that weights have amid exercise - strap a couple of two pound leg weights around each ankle and do a ten minute walk. Next, remove the weights and notice how you feel; more likely than not you'll feel as light as a feather.
Isn't it interesting how those two pound weights impact our movements? Think about all those extra pounds that are currently residing on your body; can you imagine having to carry that amount of weight all day long as you move about with it placed into your arms or in a backpack? Yet, the body does just that all day long and it is very strenuous on the skeletal frame as it wasn't built to carry excess pounds; it was constructed to support your recommended - or healthy body weight.
Because the weight is distributed throughout the body, a bit in the fingers, some amid the toes, the arms, hips, thighs, calves of the legs, upper back, along the love handle area, in the neck and shoulders - and chiefly in the abdominal area, the body manages to move and function throughout the day. But again - if those extra pounds over recommended weight were removed and placed into a backpack, how long could you carry them? How burdened would they make your journey be? This is yet another great reason to lose those unhealthy pounds - and to give the body skeleton frame a break before it totally breaks in an entirely different manner.
And while the weight comes off, those unsightly dimples will also diminish greatly.
On that note, another method for lessening the appearance of those dimples is to wear stockings or tights beneath shorts. Colored tights can work quite well with the shorter shorts. And as to the swimsuit issue - cover ups serve their purpose and never feel guilty about using one. They are available in all lengths and can be quite beautiful.
Commercial Cellulite Remedies; Are the Effective?
Certain cellulite creams, brushes, sponges, wraps and massages abound on the market these days, but the results are minimal and the cellulite remedies are very pricey. Another downside is that once the creams or other skin-applied remedies are discontinued from application, the cellulite returns in force. Again - results are minimal.
What about massaging the masses away? Unfortunately, cellulite cannot be heated or broken up or moved amid massages or other methods. These remedies are totally useless when it comes to losing fat which is the best solution for concealing cellulite, making its appearance less noticeable.
Another thing to consider that the manufacturers do not share is that everything that is applied to the skin - from shampoos to hand lotions, enter the bloodstream. No telling what some of us have floating around in there.
