Cellulite Prevention and Skin Improvement
Who has not heard of Cellulite? #Cellulite is the protrusion of fatty tissue through the skin’s fibrous septa, which gives the appearance of ripples and orange peel skin. They appear mainly on the lateral parts of the thigh, buttocks and abdomen.
What can I do to improve it?
Diet and Exercise
Performing these activities, they will help you reduce the amount of body fat, the protrusion through the septa will be less and it will help you to improve the appearance of cellulite. Also, remember that these two healthy habits will benefit many other aspects of your body and mind.
As much as we dream of magic creams to "burn fat" or erase cellulite, they do not exist. Several topical products based on caffeine, methylxanthines, retinol, ginkgo biloba, gotu kola and others have been evaluated, however the results are poor. Don’t waste your money in vain!
Science and Technology
#Scienceandtechnology are there to help us under different grounds, such as improving lymphatic circulation, collagen production and rupture of fibrous septa. Various products have been shown to be effective in treating cellulite, but remember that these require initial and maintenance sessions.
