About Cellulite

Cellulite is a build up of subcutaneous fat, which causes skin in the affected area to look dimpled and unsmooth. Many fear getting into a swimsuit on holiday precisely because of cellulite, and often opt to cover up instead. This is not necessary, however, as there are a number of treatments that can dramatically improve the appearance of cellulite, leaving you looking better than ever.

Causes of cellulite

The severity of cellulite ranges from being visible when skin is pinched or only when sitting down, to being visible all the time. It is a condition that is hereditary, and that is worsened significantly by a lack of exercise.

However, thyroid and hormonal imbalances, hormone shifts during pregnancy and a slow metabolism all contribute to the build up of fat and cellulite. A common hormonal imbalance is polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), which affects one in every five women in the UK (according to the NHS). There are five main symptoms of PCOS: irregular periods, ovaries becoming enlarged and containing fluid-filled sacs, acne, unwanted hair growth and weight gain - including the build up of fat and cellulite.

Another widespread hormonal imbalance is when the thyroid gland does not produce enough thyroid hormones, called hypothyroidism. Thyroid hormones are instrumental in regulating the metabolism, and if there are not enough of them being produced in the body, the metabolism slows. This makes weight gain easier and the build up of stagnant fat that develops into cellulite a lot more common.

The best way to reduce cellulite at home is by exercising regularly and maintaining a healthy diet. Keeping active naturally rids the body of toxins, including excess fat.
