What is cellulite?

There are several types of cellulite: cosmetic cellulite and infectious cellulite (bacterial: staphylococcus or streptococcus).Infectious cellulite is in fact a bacterial infection caused by staphylococcus or streptococcus. The pathway is a skin infection. The management of this cellulite is essentially medical (antibiotic treatment). It manifests itself in 4 inflammatory points: redness, heat, pain and swelling.

Cosmetic cellulite consists of 3 types:

      • fat or fat, insensitive to pinching is due to excess fat combined with a lack of physical activity
      • watery mainly results from poor blood circulation
      • Fibrous. or installed cellulite depends on genetic, vascular, hormonal, dietary and nervous factors

Cellulite affects 9 out of 10 women and 1 in 50 men at some point in their lives.

Factors that promote cellulite

  • Ethnie: Women with dull skin or Asian type is less likely to have cellulite than women with fair complexions for reasons that are still unknown.
  • Sex: Cellulite particularly affects women. Women have twice as many fat cells and male fat cells are twice as small.
  • Hormones: Cellulite does appear due to hormonal fluctuations and metabolism, which occur at certain periods of life, including puberty, menstrual cycles, pregnancy, heavy weight gain, pre-menopause and menopause. Estrogens, produced in female skin cells from testosterone, and prolactin, increase lipid biosynthesis, the accumulation of fatty acids in adipose tissue and decrease the flexibility of connective tissue. This appearance of cellulite in the form of orange peel is accentuated by oral contraceptives, pregnancy and breastfeeding.
  • Heredity: Mothers who have had a long history of cellulite will therefore have girls who are more at risk of developing cellulite as well.
  • Venous insufficiency: Poor venous circulation also promotes water infiltration into adipose tissue and the development of edema

How can I avoid it?

Adapt an anti-cellulite diet: Opt for a fibre diet and finally reduce your intake of salt, carbohydrates (fast sugars) and fats (fat) to avoid causing or worsening cellulite.

  • Hydrate a lot, drinking two to three litres of water, herbal teas, sugar-free fruit and vegetable juices
  • Wear appropriate clothing and footwear: Regular wearing high-heeled shoes and clothing that tightens the legs and calves too much also interfere with good blood circulation and actually promote cellulite.
  • Exercise: Sedentary lifestyle and lack of exercise ultimately promote the development of fat or fat tissue at the expense of muscle mass. On the contrary, sports and exercise increase your heart and respiratory rhythms, thus promoting blood circulation and tissue oxygenation.
  • Fighting obesity: Excess weight exacerbates the problem of cellulite.
  • Fighting smoking: Nicotine decreases tissue oxygenation
