Combat Cellulite!

Cellulite if often portrayed as an ailment, a horror, a get-rid-of-now affliction. One does not have to make an effort to read an article about the horrors of cellulite, there are enough, slap-on-the-face advertisements in almost each women's magazine that one comes across. Let us see what cellulite is.

The dictionary definition is ~A fatty deposit causing a dimpled or uneven appearance, as around the thighs and buttocks.~ The fat, which is very close to the surface of the skin, pushes against connective tissues in the skin to cause a dimpled appearance, called ~peau d~orange~ in France (orange skin).

People (male and female) of all ages can have cellulite. Somehow what is seen as adorable on babies is horrifying on adults. Tabloid magazines in the grocery store show close-up photos of actresses and their shockingly ~normal~ bodies.

There is a plethora of creams, lotions, and potions, promising to help you get rid of the undesirable accumulation of cellulite from your legs or thighs. What people do not remember is the simple cure called exercise. You can tone your legs and bottom and get rid of the extra cellulite by doing simple exercises like walking or biking. Very few people try to find out the reason for this problem. They are more interested in the result. Though, it is difficult to maintain a perfectly toned body at all ages, one must try to keep it in the best possible shape and health. It must be plainly understood that neither is cellulite a disease nor is it a sign of unhealthiness.

Cream, lotion or electrical appliances as a remedy will never be as good as a regular walk everyday to build up your confidence and a feeling of good health. The cellulite is just like any other fat tissue. Medical research papers have clearly brought out that cellulite is not unhealthy in itself unless you have too much of body fat.

There are plenty of offers like topical products, devices, supplements or spa treatments that claim to help you get rid of cellulite. You need to be very careful when choosing the correct product. Generally they are not effective and their safety record is nothing to write home about. The most suitable way is to follow a regular and hard exercise regime coupled with carefully choosing to eat food that are low in fats. Everyone may have a different problem area. You must realize that every individual is different and many a times we inherit a body pattern.

For the people concerned with cellulite the U.S. National Library of Medicine has the following recommendation:

~~Your diet must consist of fruits, vegetables, and fiber.
~~Fluids should be taken in large quantity.
~~Undertake exercises regularly.
~~Maintain a healthy weight with no wildly
~~luctuating dieting.
~~Quit smoking in case you do.
