Cellulite is a naturally occurring part of our body but still we work hard to eliminate it. We buy special creams, products online, and listen to the loud voices in infomercials all in hope of diminishing its visibility. Unfortunately those loud commercials don’t hold the answers. There is no miracle cure or fancy cream that can get rid of cellulite overnight. Instead, we have a few tips to help you get rid of cellulite and diminish its appearance.
4 Tips to Get Rid of Cellulite
Diet and Weight
Diet and weight can play a huge factor in your bodies ability to create cellulite. Cellulite happens when the fibrous cords holding your skin to the muscle become stretched. The layer of fat between the skin and muscle causes the cords to stretch. When cords become stretched they create a dimpled appearance on the skin’s surface. Keeping track of your nutrition and weight can eliminate the layer of fat or at least decrease it. A steady healthy weight loss is best for diminishing the appearance of cellulite.
Nutrition and exercise are two of the best ways to eliminate fat and build muscle. Proper exercise can help you decrease the amount of fat causing strain on your skin and help you replace it with muscle instead. Exercise also increases blood flow to fatty tissue helping minimize the look of cellulite. BOARD30 offers a variety of fitness classes for all levels that can help you work towards minimizing cellulite.
Get a Massage
Massage can have many healing effects on your body. While it may not be your first go to for cellulite it certainly should be on your list. While the effects of massage on cellulite are not well studied, it is known that massage can increase blood flow. A good massage can remove lactic acid and increase the body’s blood flow. This can increase the flow to fatty tissue as well.
Rebounding is a form of high-intensity cardiovascular exercise, which means it can help you burn calories and shed fat. Reducing fat will reduce the appearance of cellulite since cellulite is a type of fat, and some people find that with less body fat, cellulite disappears entirely. Rebounding also increases circulation to the lower portion of your body, reducing your risk of cellulite due to decreased circulation. For the most benefits, aim for 300 minutes of cardio per week.
Consult Your Doctor
If you are serious about removing cellulite, it is always best to consult your doctor. They can help you determine the correct nutrition and fitness regimen. If your case is serious, they may even be able to point you towards a medical procedure to help. While we always suggest natural methods first there are procedures such as cryolipolysis and even surgery.
