We have answered the five fundamental questions about the blemish most hated by women to help you get to know it better and reduce it effectively.

What are the causes of cellulite?

Skin blemish that mainly affects women – even if men are not immune to it – does not necessarily depend on age or weight, but is caused not only by a genetic predisposition, but also by an incorrect lifestyle, hormonal problems , related to periods or menopause, and poor nutrition. Wearing tight-fitting and constricting clothes, ingesting too much fat and sugar, drinking too little water or overdoing alcohol, spending a lot of time sitting and doing, in general, little physical activity are triggers that, by limiting proper blood circulation, increase the possibility of develop cellulite.
Some psychological aspects can also favor its appearance. Are you feeling down or experiencing a period of high stress? Your skin may be affected.

What cellulite are you from?

Not all fat is cellulite and not all cellulite is the same. To study an effective action plan that will help you recover the silhouette you want, it is important to be able to accurately identify your imperfection. Hips, abdomen and thighs are the areas most affected by cellulite in women: by observing, touching and squeezing the skin, you will be able to understand what cellulite you are.

First there is a phase of stagnation of liquids that makes the skin pasty and cold. It is the earliest stage and the good news is that it is reversible.

The dreaded orange peel, with small holes, is noticeable on the skin when it is compressed, and is caused by small nodules that form in the adipose tissue.

Advanced cellulite is noticed when the furrows are evident without having to compress the skin: the color is altered (skin discoloration), the pain to the touch is evident as if there were bruises. With commitment and the right products, even the orange peel can be improved. Except for the extreme and more serious cases of sclerotic cellulite, even advanced cellulite can be treated, preferably with the help of a specialized doctor.

How to prevent and fight cellulite?

In beauty, alas, there are no shortcuts! To be able to prevent the accumulation of liquids and the subsequent appearance of cellulite, the rules of common sense that even our grandmothers knew apply: it is important to eat healthy, preferring fruit and vegetables and limiting fats, fried foods, salt and sugars; you need to play sports, preferably aerobic activity at least two or three times a week; a sedentary lifestyle, between desk, sofa and bed, is to be avoided; one must strive to eliminate smoking and alcohol and drink lots of water.

What can we expect from an anti-cellulite cream or gel?

If it is true that a healthy lifestyle reduces the appearance of cellulite, it is equally true that using specific cosmetic products helps to improve blemishes, reduce localized fat accumulations, make the skin softer and silky, to the touch and to the view. Depending on the composition for which they have been studied, creams, gels, oils and muds have an adjuvant action in fighting cellulite and at the same time moisturize and nourish the skin. The secret to a truly visible result? Patience and constancy. Anti-cellulite products work when used following the instructions and applying them carefully for an extended period of time. There is no miracle solution that reduces cellulite in 3 or 4 days, except, of course, having a magic wand.

How to apply anti-cellulite products

Products in cream, oil or gel should be applied with care, twice a day, to stimulate a skin response. Take the right amount of cream and spread it on the area to be treated with a light touch. Then start massaging with circular movements, from the bottom up, first rolling the skin, with small pinches to reactivate the circulation, and then kneading to stretch the muscle mass. Finally, rub well to oxygenate the tissues and reactivate circulation.

If you have decided to try anti-cellulite muds, after having applied them with the usual massage with circular movements, keep them in place for the indicated time and finally wash off the product in the shower.
