However, men are almost never seen with this problem. The most affected areas are generally thighs, abdomen and buttocks.Cellulite is frequently considered the consequence of obesity, though, in fact, it is not in the least so. Both fat and skinny thin women are able to develop cellulite. We have dermis and epidermis but underneath them there are three more fat layers. Subcutaneous layers are the ones that are prone to cellulite development. The structure of this layer is peculiar as it contains of fatty parts structured as chambers created by linked tissues around. In women these chambers are large and upright and there is plenty of space for a fat to be stored. In men, contrariwise, the chambers have different form – they are small and slanting and there is little space to store fat, so they are not predisposed for cellulite forming. Body’s metabolism in the subcutaneous layer evokes fat storage. But so do hormones. Estrogen and folliculine help out with the cellulite formation. Such hormonal changes as puberty, pregnancy, or menopause, as well as the periods of birth control pills administration are able to lead to formation of cellulite. As woman’s hormone play important role in blood flow, fat and lymphatic drainage regulation, certain imbalance can easily lend to cellulite. Complex physiological changes in the subcutaneous fat layer lead to cellulite. And it is not always possible to get rid of it with the help of workouts and diets and other means. But the neglect to the above mentioned can make things even worse. Bad nutrition, sedentary lifestyle with little movement, lack of fluid in the organism – these are factors that can aggravate your cellulite. Unlucky as it is, with aging the thickness and tonus of connective tissues deteriorates and therefore, those who want to look good and healthy should take a laissez-faire attitude. Nowadays the cosmetic market is able to offer a lot of different anti-cellulite products but it is not really possible to prove that they do really work or not. Therefore be wise and to not get fooled. Keep in mind one important thing – creams and balms alone will not be of great help. In order to reach any visible effect you need to fight cellulite in complex with the change of diets, workouts, and massage. The creams that are promoted can be only a part of your treatment complex. While choosing creams, pay attention to the ones that have herbs, antioxidants, minerals and vitamins as components. They will help to make your skin softer, healthier and smoother, which is a good thing in itself. Antioxidant and anti-inflammatory creams stimulate the blood flow and are most effective for cellulite treatment. But again, cellulite needs to be attended from the inside. Being treated only locally, it will not be removed effectively.
Getting rid of cellulite is not a matter of several days. It is a long process and needs patience. Besides, it is not always very much successful. That is why so many women opt for cosmetic surgery such as liposuction, as well as mesotherapy and endermologie. They are quite popular and also considered quite effective.
