Cellulite is fat that pushes through weakened connective tissue, giving skin a “dimpled” appearance. It commonly appears on the thighs and legs. Although there is no cure for cellulite, you can reduce its appearance by adopting lifestyle changes and undergoing cosmetic dermatological procedures.
Will Exercise Eliminate Cellulite?
Going to the gym consistently can help gain muscle and improve overall muscle tone to help reduce the appearance of cellulite.
Will Losing Weight Eliminate Cellulite?
The more excess fat you have, the more visible cellulite will be. Achieving a healthy weight will help minimize the appearance of cellulite, although it won’t completely eliminate it.
Do Certain Foods Cause Cellulite?
Processed foods, foods with excessive salt, and foods that cause inflammation like refined carbohydrates make cellulite more noticeable. Follow a diet rich in antioxidants and polyphenols, which reduce inflammation. The following foods reduce inflammation and are shown to produce collagen growth:
- Citrus fruits
- Olive oil
Does Drinking Water Reduce Cellulite?
Consistently drinking at least 64 ounces or eight glasses of water daily helps your body flush away toxins, including some excess fat cells that can appear as cellulite.
