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 a favorable ground for cellulite . If a parent has cellulite, then the chances of having it are even higher.

- The excess consumption of sugars , fats , and rich foods that are difficult to eliminate, increases the size of adipose cells and causes them to multiply, 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 causes water and fats to "stagnate" in the body and prevent their proper circulation.

How do you know if you are actually retaining water?

Swelling  in the feet, calves or even 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 to water retention with the symptoms  swelling  weight gain  and  unusual sensitivity  at the  chest .

How do you know if it is watery or fatty cellulite?

If we tend to retain water , the period is often associated with swelling and feelings of heavy legs , there is a good chance that it is water cellulite . In this case, a consumption of fruits and vegetables rich in antioxidants, an aquatic physical activity and a circulatory massage with essential oils of Juniper or even Cedarwood are perfectly suited.

What steps to take to make cellulite disappear?

Whatever the type of cellulite, the palpate-roll method is THE daily gesture 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 to the top . This gesture stimulates blood circulation and promotes the circulation of nutrients to the congested area, thus making the area more flexible and giving it a more pleasant visual appearance .
