What Is Cellulite
We’ve all seen it and for many of us, it will have sneaked up on some part of our body at some point. But what is it? It is actually nothing more than normal fat beneath the skin. The bumpy appearance happens because the fat pushes against the connective tissue, causing the skin above to pucker. You should bear in mind and remember that it isn’t harmful, although many people use cellulite removal products to try and get rid of it. Generally, cellulite tends to commonly appear around the buttocks and thigh area. It’s not always appreciated on what use to be smooth toned skin!
What grade of cellulite do you have?
Some studies suggest there are 4 main grades:
Grade 1- it’s not visible, not even when the skin is pinched.
Grade 2- there is no visible difference of skin texture when you are lying down or standing, however when the area of skin is pinched an orange peel effect can be seen.
Grade 3- a pimpled effect can be seen when stood up, although disappears when lying down.
Grade 4- visible effects can be seen both standing up and laying down.
What Causes It?
There are multiple reasons why the dreaded pimply effect occurs and why we reach for cellulite removal products, the main factors include:
- Poor diet
- Fad dieting
- Slow metabolism
- Lack of physical activity
- Hormone changes
- Total body fat
- Thickness and colour of your skin
Cellulite appears less noticeable on darker skin tones. Therefore, its worth noting if you need a quick fix before baring all in that slightly daunting bikini, why not apply a bit of tan from our tanning range alongside your cellulite removal products and help reduce the signs for a while?!
Tips For Naturally Reducing Cellulite
Alongside using products, adjusting your lifestyle in specific ways such as eating a healthier diet and taking part in more physical activities can also increase your chances of creating a smoother skin tone. Of course, there are drastic methods of removing distasteful skin texture and quality. These include liposuction and plastic surgery, however these are not only expensive but dangerous too. Natural cellulite removal products offer the safest method by far and also one of the easiest.
Modern day life very often leaves us with limited time to take care of ourselves as much as we would like to, although this lack of time doesn’t mean we are less aware of any unwanted changes that can occur to our skin. Sometime speed, ease of use and effectiveness is key, which is exactly what our cellulite removal products at LéLuna aim to let you have the pleasure of experiencing.
