Cellulite is a condition that usually appears a bit later in life for women, and it is something that most dread and would like to avoid at all cost if possible. The main issue with cellulite is its unattractive appearance that can lead to loss of self confidence or too much self awareness in someone who has developed cellulite on their thighs or buttocks.
What you should know however is that the causes of cellulite can be common things we do every day that may seem completely harmless but in fact are the leading reasons why you develop this condition.
So let’s take a closer look at 5 common things that cause cellulite and how to counter them:
If you’re fortunate to not have a job where you’re required to sit at a desk all day, then you are one of the lucky ones, because the rest of us usually have to sit at our desks for at least 8 hours per day, and this will eventually enable cellulite to form. You shouldn’t despair if you are in fact one of many who have a desk job, as there is a simple fix for it. Get up once every few hours, stretch, maybe even stand for a few minutes. If your job allows it, go for a small 2 minute walk around the office every day – this will immediately help greatly to prevent the development of cellulite.
Now, you shouldn’t interpret this as “Oh I have to get ripped now to avoid cellulite?” as this wouldn’t be accurate at all. All we’re saying is, you need to put a little muscle on your legs as this will not only prevent cellulite from forming on your thighs, it will also make you overall healthier. You don’t even need to go to the gym for this; you can simply do regular single leg deadlifts a few minutes every day to strengthen your back leg muscles just the required amount.
Make no mistake about it, hydration is very important in cellulite prevention, as is for your body’s general well being. If your water intake is low, this will lead to a weaker metabolism that in turn will have trouble eliminating toxins and excess fat from your body, eventually leading to small amounts of fat to instead be deposited under your skin, causing cellulite. Avoid sugary beverages if you consume them on a regular basis and try to form a custom of drinking quality water instead, your body will thank you for it.
Eating salty foods in excess will lead to swelling which will result in your cellulite to become more noticeable. Nutrition is very important and you should always avoid eating too much fast food that is high in salt and high in carbs. This will lead to thinner skin that will obviously make cellulite even more visible. In turn try a more balanced, healthy, vitamin rich diet.
Many women like to dress in tighter clothing to look and feel better, but this can also be a common cause of cellulite. Tighter clothing will hamper with blood circulation which will make it easier for those unattractive dimples to appear on your thighs. To easily counter this you should never wear tight clothing more than a couple of days per week.
Follow this advice and your thighs and butt will look great for years to come!
