Cellulite beyond exercise

If exercise isn’t enough, try other cellulite-busting solutions

 

The skin is made up of multi-layered tissue with connective cords that act similar to a net to keep your muscles, fat, and skin tethered together. When that fat pushes against the connective tissue, you get cellulite.

Cellulite is very common, most often found on the arms, lower stomach, breasts, and thighs. While many people associate cellulite with being overweight, even thin people and those who work out all the time can suffer from dimpling due to cellulite.

Is Exercise Really a Cure for Cellulite?

Believe it or not, not all types of exercise can help with cellulite. In fact, if you work out and still have cellulite, you may need to look at the types of exercises you are doing.

The American Council on Exercise says that people with cellulite ought to perform cardio activities most days of the week coupled with two to three days of resistance-training workouts. So, if you currently only do cardio, you might want to add strength training to your cellulite-busting regime.

The muscles lie underneath the skin. When you replace fat with muscle, you help your body to look more toned and reduce cellulite. Squats, lunges, bicep curls, and abdominal crunches are the types of spot-reduction exercises you can try.

But what if exercise isn’t working for you in your effort to deal with cellulite?

There are other options.

Smoothing the Bumps

Fortunately, there are ways to deal with those the unwanted appearance of dimpling skin, both naturally and with medical treatments.

There are a number of actions you can start doing right now to minimize or eliminate cellulite, such as:

  • Warm water and lemon – drink a glass of warm water with lemon as soon as you wake up to balance your body’s pH, hydrate the lymphatic system, and detoxify. On that note, proper hydration is important to keeping tissues and the lymphatic system clean, so make sure you’re drinking enough water throughout the day.
  • Quit smoking – every puff you take affects the blood supply to the skin, making it thinner and more likely to sag. This makes cellulite more visible, especially in the arms, buttocks, and thighs.
  • Dry brush – dry body brushing improves circulation and lymphatic drainage, reducing cellulite.
  • Get a massage – treat yourself to a vacuum cup and give yourself a massage. This method can be a little sore at first, but it can help to reduce cellulite.
  • Cut the salt – sodium leads to you retaining excess water and making your skin look even more dimply and lumpy.

At ENVY Skin Clinic, we offer a non-invasive and long-lasting solution in the form of Venus Concept. The treatment is designed to reshape your body and is successful as an alternative, non-surgical solution to liposuction. Not only can it help bust cellulite in problem areas, but it can also help get rid of muffin tops!

The treatment is designed in such a way that it uses several different clinically proven solutions, such as deep tissue heating, suction, and radiofrequency energy to distribute heat to the underlying fat below the skin. The energy pulses and vacuum then work together to contour your curves. Most people require up to 8 sessions, spread out over the course of 8 weeks, but you’ll notice slight improvements within your first few treatments!
