What Exactly Causes Cellulite?
Hormones: The formation of cellulite is connected to the fluctuation of a woman’s reproductive hormones, particularly oestrogen. It generally occurs in the areas in which our bodies are programmed to store fat, like the hips, thighs, buttocks, stomach and upper arms.
An inactive lifestyle and incorrect diet: When it comes to healthy skin, it is important to follow a clean and wholesome diet. What you eat plays a big part in the formation of cellulite. Processed meats, sugary and fizzy drinks, coffee, carbohydrates and too much salt all contribute to the look of ‘orange peel’. Cellulite is also linked to poor digestion, which results in ineffective waste removal. This is largely due to insufficient water intake and not eating enough fresh fruit, vegetables and fibre-rich foods. Further to this, an inactive lifestyle can affect your blood circulation and lymphatic system, causing poor circulation and fluid retention. This contributes to cellulite formation and can also harden existing cellulite.
