Almost every woman is famil­iar with this prob­lem — an ugly “orange peel” on the skin, most often formed in the thighs and but­tocks. In addi­tion to a pure­ly cos­met­ic defect, cel­lulite can also indi­cate health prob­lems.

The fight against him is a long and demand­ing task, but still not hope­less. We have pre­pared a spe­cial guide for women, which includ­ed the most effec­tive ways to com­bat cel­lulite.

The preva­lence of cel­lulite among the fair sex in the world is esti­mat­ed by experts at 85–98%, depend­ing on the coun­try. This prob­lem knows nei­ther social, nor racial, nor age restric­tions. Despite the enor­mous preva­lence of cel­lulite, over the past 30 years, only a few sci­en­tif­ic papers have been pub­lished on this con­di­tion. Until now, sci­ence does not know either the exact caus­es of the appear­ance of the “orange peel”, which is formed in the sub­cu­ta­neous fat­ty tis­sue, or one hun­dred per­cent meth­ods of get­ting rid of it. How­ev­er, a great vari­ety of meth­ods of influ­ence have appeared, so that with the desire and patience it is still pos­si­ble to achieve smooth skin.

What is cellulite

What is cellulite

For the first time the term “cel­lulite” appeared in France more than a cen­tu­ry and a half ago. Since it does not car­ry any mor­tal dan­ger to a per­son, it is not a patho­log­i­cal con­di­tion. How­ev­er, it has become a cos­met­ic prob­lem for a huge army of women, because, despite all the pro­mot­ed body pos­i­tiv­i­ty, beau­ty stan­dards dic­tate that the skin should be smooth and elas­tic.

Why does he appear

The cause of this con­di­tion is not ful­ly known, but there are sev­er­al the­o­ries about this. Con­sid­er­ing the fact that this prob­lem con­cerns, first of all, women, it is sug­gest­ed that the cause of cel­lulite is the spe­cial archi­tec­ture of the female skin. Oth­er the­o­ries relate to the con­nec­tion of the “orange peel” with the state of the con­nec­tive tis­sue, vas­cu­lar dis­or­ders and inflam­ma­to­ry process­es in the body.

Unfor­tu­nate­ly, there are no meth­ods that guar­an­tee get­ting rid of cel­lulite. once and for all, how­ev­er, there are many ways to sig­nif­i­cant­ly improve the con­di­tion of the skin. They can be divid­ed into two blocks. The first relate to the fight against the caus­es of cel­lulite from the inside. The sec­ond — with its cos­met­ic man­i­fes­ta­tions on the out­side.

We fight from within

1. Maintain weight

Maintaining weight

The best way to keep the skin in beau­ty is a healthy lifestyle. Of course, it includes many com­po­nents, but the main thing here is main­tain­ing a nor­mal body mass index. Which is impos­si­ble with­out prop­er nutri­tion and sports activ­i­ties. There are a num­ber of prod­ucts that sup­port skin health, main­tain its tur­gor and pre­vent cel­lulite.

2. We nourish the skin properly

“The diet is very seri­ous­ly reflect­ed in the con­di­tion of the skin. There­fore, it is impor­tant to ensure that all the nec­es­sary com­po­nents are present in it: the cor­rect (that is, com­plex) car­bo­hy­drates, polyun­sat­u­rat­ed fats and pro­teins that sup­ply col­la­gen to the skin, ”says nutri­tion­ist Vale­ria Yank­i­na.

Com­plex car­bo­hy­drates are rich in cere­als, bran, veg­eta­bles and fruits. Healthy fats are found in sea fish, avo­ca­dos, seeds, nuts and veg­etable oils.

Pro­tein-rich foods — meat, dairy prod­ucts, legumes, eggs, fish.

3. Anti-cellulite vitamins

Vit­a­mins sat­u­rate the body with antiox­i­dants that pre­vent the aging process, main­tain vas­cu­lar tone and pre­serve the appear­ance of the skin. As Vale­ria Yank­i­na notes, the most use­ful vit­a­mins in the fight against cel­lulite are C, E, A, lycopene, lutein, and rutin. Sele­ni­um, zinc and man­ganese improve blood sup­ply to the skin, due to the slow­down of which cel­lulite increas­es, and car­ni­tine and tau­rine improve metab­o­lism.

4. Eliminate food intolerances

Intol­er­ance to indi­vid­ual foods has become one of the main prob­lems of mod­ern nutri­tion. Often, it is because of it that not only aller­gic reac­tions occur in the body, but also flu­id reten­tion, as well as an increase in the vol­ume of fat cells, which togeth­er lead to the appear­ance of cel­lulite on the skin. The most com­mon caus­es of food intol­er­ance are foods such as cow’s milk, red meat, cit­rus fruits, gluten prod­ucts. How­ev­er, it is bet­ter to take a spe­cial enzyme immunoas­say to find out which prod­ucts you should tem­porar­i­ly give up and which ones to use with cau­tion.

5. Drink more

Drink more

Water is essen­tial to sus­tain life, and if you don’t get enough H2O, your skin will be the first to be affect­ed. Per­haps this is not direct­ly relat­ed to cel­lulite, but a suf­fi­cient amount of clean drink­ing water (from one and a half liters per day) is an inevitable com­po­nent of a com­pre­hen­sive prop­er nutri­tion.

6. Stress management

Pro­longed chron­ic stress affects all aspects of life, affects health and appear­ance. Stress pro­vokes an increased pro­duc­tion of the hor­mone cor­ti­sol, espe­cial­ly in the after­noon, which push­es peo­ple … to the refrig­er­a­tor. Because of this, excess weight is often gained. And although there is no direct con­nec­tion between extra pounds and cel­lulite, it has been noticed that in women with cur­va­ceous forms, the orange peel effect is more com­mon. There­fore, reduc­ing stress to a min­i­mum is one of the impor­tant con­di­tions for main­tain­ing the beau­ty of the skin.

7. Good sleep

Sleep is one of the most impor­tant com­po­nents of a healthy lifestyle. As Mar­gari­ta Smirno­va, a car­di­ol­o­gist who deals with sleep prob­lems, says, when a per­son sleeps, the body works hard: “At this time, a num­ber of impor­tant bio­log­i­cal and chem­i­cal process­es take place that are impos­si­ble dur­ing wake­ful­ness. Few peo­ple know, but the process of split­ting fats occurs not only in sleep, but also exclu­sive­ly dur­ing the deep phase of sleep. There­fore, get­ting enough sleep is impor­tant, among oth­er things, in order to suc­cess­ful­ly fight cel­lulite. ”

Fighting outside

8. Wraps

Wraps with the use of var­i­ous cos­met­ics are a very com­mon ser­vice today. Var­i­ous mud, choco­late, hon­ey, red pep­per, cit­rus oils are active­ly used as anti-cel­lulite ther­a­py.

Wraps are cold and hot. The first are aimed at vaso­con­stric­tion and the removal of excess flu­id and tox­ins through the lym­phat­ic sys­tem. But with hot wraps, the ves­sels, on the con­trary, expand, and all of the above muck is released through the pores.

Hot wraps are con­sid­ered more effec­tive, but there are more con­traindi­ca­tions to them (be sure to con­sult a doc­tor before the pro­ce­dure). To achieve the effect of smooth skin, at least 10 ses­sions will be required, depend­ing on the stage of cel­lulite.

9. Creams and ointments

Creams and ointments

Exter­nal means to com­bat cel­lulite at home are sold at any phar­ma­cy. Like body wraps, some are based on a warm­ing effect, oth­ers are based on a cool­ing effect. True, doc­tors can­not say that at least some of the pro­posed reme­dies have a seri­ous effect. The max­i­mum that they can do is to slight­ly increase the tur­gor of the skin and give it a more well-groomed appear­ance.

A lot of mas­sage tech­niques and hard­ware pro­ce­dures have been devel­oped against cel­lulite.

10. Manual anti-cellulite massage

Any beau­ty salon today offers a man­u­al mas­sage against cel­lulite. All the actions of the mas­sage ther­a­pist are aimed at break­ing the orange peel with point strokes of the hands. Such a mas­sage leads to the break­down of the sub­cu­ta­neous fat lay­er. In addi­tion, meta­bol­ic process­es in the prob­lem area are accel­er­at­ed. It will take sev­er­al ses­sions, but you can hard­ly expect a long-term effect, espe­cial­ly if you do not fol­low a healthy lifestyle. Among the dis­ad­van­tages of the pro­ce­dure, one can also dis­tin­guish its sore­ness and side effects in the form of bruis­es on the skin. Con­traindi­ca­tions to such mas­sage are throm­bophlebitis, vari­cose veins, fibroids.

11. Vacuum Roller Massage (LPG)

This hard­ware pro­ce­dure is car­ried out in beau­ty salons or med­ical cen­ters. Mas­sage under the guid­ance of a trained spe­cial­ist is done by a spe­cial machine that kneads prob­lem areas with rollers and per­forms vac­u­um aspi­ra­tion. In the process, fat should be burned, and cel­lulite deposits should melt like snow. Some devices are equipped with an addi­tion­al func­tion of radiofre­quen­cy lift­ing, that is, they simul­ta­ne­ous­ly tight­en the skin. Some­one even com­pares this tech­nique with sur­gi­cal lipo­suc­tion. The effect is notice­able after the first ses­sions, how­ev­er, as with oth­er mas­sages, it does not last long. And again: ask your doc­tor about con­traindi­ca­tions.

12. Lymphatic drainage massage

Lymphatic drainage massage

This type of mas­sage is aimed at nor­mal­iz­ing the lymph flow. There­fore, the body is mas­saged with a spe­cial noz­zle strict­ly in the direc­tion of move­ment of the lym­phat­ic flu­id. As a result, cells are freed from excess flu­id, which, among oth­er things, con­tributes to the for­ma­tion of cel­lulite. First, the swelling will go away, and then, you see, the skin will even out. How­ev­er, this method is con­sid­ered not very effec­tive — it is rec­om­mend­ed to com­bine it with body wraps and oth­er cos­met­ic pro­ce­dures.

13. Pressotherapy

Of the advan­tages of the pro­ce­dure — a min­i­mum of con­traindi­ca­tions. How­ev­er, its effect is also, as a rule, min­i­mal (although you will be con­vinced that this is not the case). Pres­sother­a­py also improves the out­flow of lymph, which means it is aimed at elim­i­nat­ing puffi­ness. How­ev­er, unlike lym­phat­ic drainage mas­sage, the skin is affect­ed by com­pressed air, which is sup­plied to a spe­cial suit. Vac­u­um and pres­sure alter­nate, which ensures the removal of lymph stag­na­tion. The course should con­sist of 10–15 ses­sions, which will have to take place at inter­vals of 2–3 days. Some com­plain of dis­com­fort dur­ing the pro­ce­dure and the appear­ance of bruis­es on the skin.

14. Myostimulation

This pro­ce­dure is called “phys­i­cal edu­ca­tion for the lazy.” I installed the elec­trodes on the body, turned on the device, which gives them light sig­nals of elec­tric cur­rent — and the mus­cles them­selves work. A per­son at this time feels a slight tin­gling in the body. It is promised that the mus­cles as a result of myos­tim­u­la­tion will be pumped up as inten­sive­ly as as a result of exer­cis­ing in a fit­ness cen­ter. How­ev­er, in fact, such “lazy gym­nas­tics”, of course, can­not be replaced by such “lazy gym­nas­tics”. In the fight against cel­lulite, this rem­e­dy is also called aux­il­iary. And, of course, it is not worth count­ing only with its help to get rid of the orange peel.

15. Laser techniques

Plas­tic sur­geon Dmit­ry Skvortsov notes that the most effec­tive in surgery in terms of com­bat­ing cel­lulite today is the vas­er hard­ware tech­nique: “Dur­ing the pro­ce­dure, cel­lulite cells and fibrous cap­sules are bro­ken by ultra­sound, and the result­ing fat emul­sion is col­lect­ed sep­a­rate­ly (lipo­suc­tion is per­formed). Then the pre­pared fat is cleared of fibrous fibers and inject­ed back under the skin, that is, lipofill­ing is per­formed. The lost vol­ume is replen­ished by fat cells cleared of fibrous cap­sules, which give a smooth sur­face. By the way, the effect of this very orange peel is giv­en pre­cise­ly by fibrous cap­sules, which are destroyed under the influ­ence of a laser.

… In gen­er­al, there are a lot of meth­ods, but doc­tors do not get tired of repeat­ing that a long-term effect in the fight against cel­lulite can only be achieved by an inte­grat­ed approach. A healthy lifestyle and mod­ern meth­ods of cos­me­tol­ogy will help you become beau­ti­ful, improve metab­o­lism and blood cir­cu­la­tion, which will pre­vent the devel­op­ment of many dis­eases.
