What are the causes of cellulite?

Very often associated with a poor diet, the appearance of cellulite can also be associated with other reasons:

Heredity creates fertile ground for cellulite. If a parent has cellulite, then the likelihood of having it is higher.

- The excess consumption of sugarsfats, and rich foods that are difficult to eliminate, increases the size of fat cells, and leads to their multiplication, thus causing this "orange peel" appearance.

Water retention, caused by factors such as food intolerance, overconsumption of salty foods, or even a hormonal imbalance.

Lack of physical activity, which "stagnates" water and fats in the body and prevents their proper circulation.

How do you know if you prefer water retention?

Swelling in the feet, calves or ankles,  unexplained weight gain that can exceed 2 kilos ... all signs that suggest that you are probably prone to water retention!

The hormones may also be involved in this phenomenon: a few days before menstruation, women sometimes have water retention with the symptoms swelling,  weight gain, and unusual sensitivity at the chest.

How to know if it is watery or adipose cellulite?

If you tend to retain water, and your period is often associated with swelling and heavy legs, chances are it is watery cellulite. In this case, the consumption of fruits and vegetables rich in antioxidants, aquatic physical activity, and a circulatory massage with essential oils of Juniper or Cedarwood is perfectly suited.

On the other hand, the appearance of cellulite following gradual weight gain is associated with adipose cellulite. Belly, buttocks, thighs, horse breeches ... this softthick, and painless cellulite is very unsightly. In this case, say goodbye to sugars, bad fats, and a sedentary lifestyle and make way for vegetables, products rich in nutrients, for regular enduring activity, and a massage reshaping with essential oils of Grapefruit for a firm and refined body.

What actions should you take to get rid of cellulite?

Whatever the type of cellulite, the palpate-rolling method is the gesture to adopt every day to fight against cellulite.

Body language? Pinch the skin between the thumb and the other fingers of the hand and roll the compressed skin between the fingers, slowly and from the bottom up. This gesture stimulates blood circulation and promotes the circulation of nutrients to the congested area, thus making the area more supple and giving it a more pleasant visual appearance.
