Anti-cellulite

According to many studies, as many as 95% of women over age 30 develop some form of cellulite in their body.

What are the causes of cellulite
Cellulite is caused by little overfilled fat pockets right under your skin.

These are fat cells that have become enlarged causing these cells to take up more space between the skin’s connective tissues than normal, the fat then expands in these spaces resulting in the overlying skin dimpling in.

The following factors are thought to contribute to the development of cellulite:

Being overweight
Though cellulite also appears on thin people, excess weight makes cellulite worse.

Pregnancy
Cellulite problems get worse with each successive pregnancy.
During pregnancy, estrogen and progesterone levels are high. As a result, pregnant women have increased fatty deposits, weight gain, water retention, and weakened fiber structure.

Aging
As women age, skin sags and wrinkles. In addition, the body’s energy requirements are lower, thus, there is more fat accumulation.

Poor blood circulation
When there is impaired blood flow to the fat-storage area, collagen fibers are damaged due to lack of oxygen and the accumulation of toxic wastes. The fibers shrink and thicken, resulting in the quilted appearance of the fat chambers.
Poor blood circulation is often caused by sedentary lifestyles, smoking, and high caffeine consumption.

Poor lymph drainage
The lymphatic system acts like a sewage system, filtering out and carrying away cellular wastes and toxins. If it is impaired, toxic products accumulate and inflate these fat cells, causing cellulite.
