Mar 20, 2008
Understanding the Different Causes of Cellulite

Cellulite is one of the most unsightly skin problems in the world, one that millions of people presently suffer with. Although it is much more predominant among women, cellulite can also affect men, and regardless of the gender it is affecting it can be devastating in terms of the person's self esteem and self confidence.

Causes of Cellulite

Before you can properly treat your cellulite you need to understand the different causes of cellulite. This way you can determine the specific causes of cellulite in your case and then avoid them in the future, if possible.

There are actually quite a few different possible causes of cellulite. Although some people believe it to be a myth, it is actually truth that diet plays a major contributing role to cellulite. By eating fatty and sugary foods you are causes an increase in fluid retention in the body and a blockage of fat cells, which is what results in dimpling and puckering of the skin.

Lack of exercise can also be responsible for causing cellulite, and so it is important that you get in as much physical activity as you can. Genetics also play a major role as cellulite has been shown to run in families. A few of the other causes of developing cellulite include insufficient water intake, smoking, tension and stress, medication, and a sedentary lifestyle.

Treating Cellulite

Once you have determined the causes of cellulite in your particular case you can attempt to cease or avoid as many of the contributing factors as you can, but keep in mind that often additional treatment will be required as well.

Hydrotherapy is one of the most effective methods for preventing and treating cellulite. You can achieve hydrotherapy through steam baths, saunas, and hydro massage, to name a few, all which help by increasing circulation. Steam helps by loosening the pores in the body and improving circulation. Liposuction is one of the more serious treatment methods for cellulite and is often only used as a last resort. It has shown to be incredibly effective however, and so most people would consider it a worthy option.

Regardless of which particular treatment you decide to go with, the best thing you can do is live as healthy a lifestyle as possible in order to not only deal with your present cellulite but also prevent it from recurring in the future. Eating a healthy, well balanced diet, getting plenty of exercise and drinking enough water, at least six to eight glasses of water a day is ideal, will help you to reduce overall body fat and decrease cellulite.
