As I woman, I’m always concerned about how I look and how other perceive me. It’s important to look your best so you can feel your best everyday as you move about the world. I wanted to share some of my thoughts with my readers about the topic of cellulite which is near and dear to my heart.
I’ve asked a lot of women about the top physical concern which they have regarding their appearance, the answer in most cases is “cellulite!” In case you do not know about cellulite, its fatty deposit which makes your skin appear dimpled. Mostly it shows up on buttocks and thighs. Almost all the adult women have cellulite of some degree.
In case you are feeling bad about your looks because of cellulite, it’s about time that you take action to find cellulite treatment which will give you more confidence and make you feel more attractive. Many women have discovered that cellulite is one stubborn problem which isn’t easy to solve. Cellulite cannot be eliminated, but its appearance can be altered. Following are some treatments which help in reduction of the cellulite appearance.
The body wraps are a very popular method used for the reduction of the cellulite appearance. The anti-cellulite wraps can draw the toxins and fat from skin through physical wrap which is wound around problem area.
It’s not possible to remove the cellulite, so the wraps do not remove cellulite, but they do make the problem area look little better. Often the wraps smooth ones skin and leaves the area moisturized, thus helping in reduction of cellulite appearance.
Massage therapy has been sought out as treatment of cellulite by many sufferers of cellulite. Some massages are carried out by hand and others by using the machines that are geared specifically towards reducing cellulite appearance.
The massages which are targeted towards those areas which have cellulite have proven effective, however their effectiveness is only for short time period. The massages help in the redistribution of the fatty cellulite deposits. But massages don’t remove these deposits. In order to have continued results, the massages have to be done on regular basis
While considering laser therapy for the treatment of cellulite, make sure that person performing laser treatment has proper training and laser devices are FDA approved. Short term effects are provided by laser therapy which decreases appearance of the cellulite.
Just like massage therapy, the laser therapy also has to be done regularly in order to maintain results. It is a very costly treatment of cellulite and health insurance does not cover it.
Diet and Exercise:
Two of the most important was of combating cellulite appearance are to eat healthy diet and to get regular physical exercise. Diet that is rich in the high fiber vegetables and fruits is very helpful while trying to make the cellulite deposits to disappear.
It’s important that you limit sodium consumption, and increase amount of fluids that you consume. Cellulite appears worse when one has a dehydrated body. It is very important that you stay hydrated, not only for reduction in cellulite appearance but also for overall health.
The appearance of the cellulite is also reduced by physical activity as the muscles are toned and the skin becomes tight giving an all-around better look. Whether it is gentle yoga, light weight lifting or high impact aerobics, body is sure to benefit from physical activity. Best treatment of cellulite is to take good care of your body. Staying active and eating right will help in the cellulite’s physical appearance and will also lift your spirit.
Gels and Creams:
Many topical creams and gels are available in market which claim that one can get rid of the cellulite. What these creams actually do is that they moisturize skin in order to make it appear that the cellulite has dissipated.
Quite similar to body wraps which we discussed above, creams and gels only affect skin of the areas affected by cellulite. It’s not possible for these creams and gels to penetrate below layer of skin, so they cannot actually get to those areas where cellulite resides. The appearance of skin might be improved by them, thus making dimpled appearance of cellulite less noticeable.
It’s unfortunate that a person can feel poor about their appearance and suffer from low self-esteem because of cellulite. One should remember that being an adult woman, its normal to have cellulite. One should not feel bad about it or guilty about it. There are many treatments available which you can have to lessen cellulite appearance. After you have examined these options for treatment of cellulite, talk to your friends in order to find out the treatments which they’ve tried, you might just find the answer which you’ve been looking for!
