How to lose cellulite on the back of legs

No woman is completely safe from the risk of experiencing cellulite. In fact, more than 80-90% of women have issues with cellulite.  Cellulite has the look of a dimpled surface or the surface of an orange peel.

Cellulite

When you eat foods that are high in fat and sugar, you run the risk of having cellulite because fat and sugar keep depositing toxins in the body.  But eating unhealthy foods is not the only reason of having cellulite. Some other factors, including hormones, play important roles in cellulite development.

If you have cellulite on the bum, or any other parts of the body, you should get treatment as soon as possible because untreated cellulite only gets worse as you age. Read on to know how to get rid of embarrassing cellulite on bum.

DIET FOR CELLUITE

A healthy diet may help reduce the appearance of cellulite. Though there is limited research available on this, most nutritionists and skin experts opine that a healthy diet can prevent the formation or severity of cellulite.

“Eat a healthy, balanced diet to achieve weight maintenance. Weight gain, particularly a gain in fat mass, will likely worsen cellulite due to increased fat cell formation,” says Jessica Spendlove, accredited practicing dietitian and athletic performance dietitian.

A high intake of antioxidants, phytonutrients and bioflavonoids reduces the risk of having cellulite.

“Antioxidants protect against free radicals, which cause damage to skin cells and can contribute to cellulite formation,” Spendlove adds.

Some researches suggest that foods rich in polyphenols, particularly anthocyanin (found in purple foods and vegetables) may help in the reduction of cellulite appearance.

Try to add red cabbage, purple sweet potato, red kale, blueberries, raspberries, pomegranate and beetroot to your shopping list.

EXERCISE FOR CELLULITE

The first step in reducing the appearance of cellulite is weight loss, because cellulite is caused by accumulation of fat deposits. You will be able to lose weight if you do cardiovascular workouts. Remember, you can reduce the appearance of cellulite by exercising regularly, but it will not completely disappear by mere exercise.

Running, cycling and swimming are excellent aerobic exercises. These exercises will help you burn calories and increase your metabolism. These types of workouts allow muscle cells to break down glucose for energy, because you utilize large muscles.

Squats are another form of exercise which helps you fight cellulite. These workouts target the lower body, primarily the quadriceps, buttocks and abdominal muscles and will enable you to build lean muscle.

Recent studies have sown that it is actually the muscle that gives fat its shape, and fat is the major determinant to the appearance of cellulite. Exercise helps fat spread in all directions and thus prevents cellulite to appear.

Other good exercises to get rid of cellulite on bum fast and naturally are:

  1. Clockwise lounge
  2. Alternating abduction squats
  3. Hip-lift progression
  4. Polymetric squats
  5. Dumbbell split jump
  6. Goblet squat

EXFOLIATION & CELLULITE

One of the easiest and beneficial substances to treat cellulite is a body scrub. Besides lessening the appearance of cellulite, exfoliating can give other healthful benefits to your skin. If you exfoliate the skin using a scrub, you will in fact improve circulation which will loosen up the excess fluid. You can purchase body scrubs or make in your house with easily available ingredients that you can find at your local grocer.

You will definitely save money if you make your own scrub. There are many options when it comes to making an effective scrub.

An exfoliant is the basis of a scrub. Sugar, brown sugar and salt are some great exfoliation base ingredients you can find around the house. Some people also use crushed aspirin as a scrub. But note that though crushed aspirin has some scrubbing characteristics, some experts warn that an aspirin might have some adverse effects to those with asthma.

Oil is another great scrub base. Besides thinning out the scrub, oil has its own beneficial properties. Some other options include orange, peppermint, rosemary, olive oil and coconut oil.

If you want a ready-made scrub, there are lots of pre-packaged scrubs in many different scents and styles.

HYDRATION & CELLULITE

Staying hydrated is a must to keep your skin healthy. But staying hydrated is not easy for many of us. With long and stressful days, we tend to forget to drink water.

There is a strong correlation between cellulite and hydration. To keep all the toxins in our body flowing freely, and eventually out of our systems, is one of the main reasons to keep hydrated. If toxins are accumulated in the body, we may end up with many diseases, including skin problems. Cellulite can be the result of a build-up of toxins in your body. Because of dehydration, the skin loses its elasticity. As a result, cellulite and wrinkles can appear on many parts of the body. If you want to keep the skin smooth and maintain its elasticity, keep it hydrated.

In fact, drinking water may be one of the simplest cellulite treatments available. Drinking water will help you keep your skin toxin-free and give cellulite an easier escape route.

But drinking lots of water is not the only way to stay hydrated. Eating fruits and vegetables is also necessary.

VELASHAPE CELLULITE TREATMENT

The technique of VelaShape combines powerful energies to target and heat within the treatment area. It is claimed that this technology uses bipolar radio frequency, infrared light, tissue mobilization and section to treat cellulite.

This procedure is good for those individuals who are already within their target weight range and maintain a healthy and active lifestyle. This procedure shrinks fat cells by heating them to a specific temperature, but it does not remove fat. The process will flush out toxins and excess body fluids, a lot of water should be consumed on the day of the treatment. Strenuous workouts should be avoided on the day of the procedure.

Most individuals begin to notice improvement by the third treatment, but the final outcome from this procedure will be most apparent 6-8 weeks after the final treatment session.
