What causes cellulite?

Scientifically known as Gynoid Lipodystrophy (LDG), cellulite is an alteration in the fatty tissue caused by the accumulation of fat, water and toxins in the cells. Together with changes in microcirculation and consequent increase in fibrous tissue, this whole process causes ripples and retractions in the skin, causing unevenness and nodules mainly in the buttocks and legs area.

The appearance of cellulite is caused by several factors, one of the main ones being genetics. However, sex, ethnicity, biotype, fat and weight distribution, skin flaccidity, lifestyle, circulatory changes, hormonal problems, poor diet and even stress, may be related to the development from cellulite.

How to eliminate cellulite?

Cellulite is not a serious medical condition, but it can be indicative of an unhealthy lifestyle. Therefore, the best way to prevent and treat cellulite is to have healthy habits. Some practices can help reduce or prevent the appearance of cellulite, such as having a diet rich in proteins and fibers, drinking plenty of water every day, having a constant practice of physical exercise, avoiding tobacco and maintaining an ideal weight.

Although it is not a health issue, cellulite can cause self-esteem issues. It is possible to considerably reduce the appearance of cellulite through minimally or non-invasive treatments.
