My cellulite has been a plague on my miniskirt – and short-shorts – wearing habits since I gave birth to my third child and starting pigging out on every processed foods in site.

While I haven’t exactly made it my life’s mission, finding effective ways of removing cellulite is becoming something of a preoccupation of mine. Despite the fact that there are a great number of products that claim to be completely effective at reducing cellulite, I haven’t really found whatever can cheaply and painlessly remove it -ALL of it- instantly. On the other hand, I have had some pretty good results.

Here are some points to consider when working on reducing or removing cellulite though:

Cellulite is Fat

Despite that, obesity or carrying excess fat doesn’t necessarily mean that an individual will automatically have cellulite. Sure, plenty of obese folks have cellulite, but if you’re among those lucky types, you won’t have to add orange peel butt to your weights woes as well.

Cellulite is fat cells in the skin’s connective tissue which have accumulated and pushed against it so the skin in your community ripples and puckers. Like an orange. Or like the skin of a freshly plucked chicken. Or a badly made sponge cake.

In the event you’re wondering, no, I don’t actually spend time thinking up unflattering similes for cellulite. It’s that my cellulite really annoys me.

Cellulite Can be Found on Various areas of the Body

Like most women, my cellulite was on my butt and thighs, in which a lot of my own body fat appears to have accumulated. Having cellulite in these areas might limit my summer clothing and swimwear options, but I guess I’ve still got it good compared to various other folks.

Some people have cellulite in other areas, too: like their arms and bellies – that means no sleeveless shirts and no bikinis or low-cut jeans. Some people have much more of it than others – eep!

Forgive me if I enjoy a bit of schadenfreude here, but I’m glad I only have a little bit of cellulite on my butt and thighs, rather than all over, like a few unfortunates I know.

Anyone Can Get Cellulite

You don’t necessarily need to be fat to have problems with cellulite; I was actually pretty skinny at nineteen, but that didn’t change the fact that my backside looked like an irate golf ball even then. In fact, I’ve taken some rather… unscrupulous pleasure in discovering that minus the protection of a graphic artist’s airbrush, even supermodels and Hollywood starlets can have cellulite.

In my research though, I came across, much to my envy, that men are a lot less inclined to have cellulite. There aren’t any solid scientific known reasons for this, but it’s still the way it is. Lucky boys.

Ah well, at the very least we girls can still get multiple orgasms.

We Still Don’t Know What Really Causes Cellulite, or How to Completely Eliminate It, Short of Surgery

Sure, modern science has brought man to the moon and found ways to create glow-in-the-dark pet fish using recombinant DNA, but it’s still puttering around looking for ways to cure cellulite or eliminate cellulite’s orange peel ass effect without needing to slice a person open.

We’re not even completely sure about how cellulite starts in the first place.

Some experts think that cellulite is caused by toxins in someone’s body; others think that it’s a hormonal – and for that reason, a gender – issue, since women appear to comprise the bulk of cellulite’s unfortunate victims. Maybe it’s a combination of both.

Whatever the case may be, not knowing just what causes cellulite in the first place implies that completely and reliably preventing or removing cellulite still is not a scientific reality.

السيلوليت There are Options for Removing Cellulite or Reducing Cellulite

Even if we can’t quite make cellulite go the way of smallpox or the dodo yet though, hope isn’t completely lost. These procedures won’t always work, and some will be more effective for several people and a complete waste of time and money for others, but at the very least they’re out there that you can check out:

Liposuction: Cellulite is fat. Therefore, eliminating the fat

will get rid of your cellulite. The good thing about liposuction is that it removes the fat cells themselves, meaning that it’s a lot not as likely for the liposuctioned area to obtain fat again. Therefore it’s also much less likely to get cellulite there as well. That is the most surefire ways to get gone cellulite permanently.

Check with your doctor first though; liposuction is probably not the best option for you personally and does come with some side effects.

Exercise and diet: Yes, yes; a healthy diet and exercise are good for you. The dietary plan and exercise combo solves a great deal of problems; and it can play a big part in reducing cellulite. Keeping as of this can get rid of any extra, unhealthy fat you might have in your body, that may, in turn, eliminate cellulite – since, like I’ve mentioned before, cellulite is fat.

Also, vegatables and fruits – like berries, spinach, and carrots – are great antioxidants and can really improve your skin and your circulation.

Moisturizers and Cellulite Creams: Even though cellulite happens below that top layer of the skin, a little moisturizer really can nourish your skin, which could actually go quite a distance in reducing cellulite – or at least, making it less visible. This is about all that most of these expensive cellulite creams can do. Even if these creams will claim to work in removing cellulite completely, try to take their claims with a grain of salt; they are able to only go so far.
