Cellulite Guide

Say See Ya to Cellulite This Summer!

Oftentimes, it’s not the weight that keeps a woman from strutting her stuff on the beach, it’s her cellulite. Cellulite is defined as the dimpled appearance of the skin caused by fat deposits that are just below the surface of the skin. It’s most common to find cellulite on the abdomen, lower limbs, and pelvic region, and it usually occurs after puberty.

Causes of Cellulite

There are many factors attributed to cellulite, such as metabolism, physiology, dieting too hard or too much, even the types of food you eat and the amount of water you drink can play a significant role in causing cellulite. Let’s explore….

Diet & Habits

One of the best ways to diminish the look of cellulite is starting with you. Examine the types of food you’re eating on a regular basis. For instance, fried foods can wreak havoc on your skin and overall appearance. Also, how much water are you consuming a day? The right amount of water will make a big difference in the overall appearance of your skin. The more water you drink, the more supple your skin looks. Avoid these foods to reduce excess cellulite:

  • Excessively sugary foods
  • Excessively salty foods
  • Saturated foods
  • Alcohol
  • Junk Food

Instead, enjoy more of these:

  • Blueberries and blackberries
  • Cherries
  • Mangos
  • Oranges
  • Strawberries and raspberries
  • Cranberries
  • Grapefruit
  • Apples
  • Spinach
  • Tomatoes
  • Fennel
  • Bell peppers
  • Carrots
