We have already learned how to fight excess weight, to build muscles, too, but few people still know the secrets of getting rid of cellulite. Irina Solomatina, head of the training department [comfort zone], told us what cellulite is and how to defeat it.
What is cellulite and where does it come from
Cellulite is a pathology of subcutaneous adipose tissue, in which individual groups of lipocytes (fat cells), catching glucose, accumulate “inviolable reserves for a rainy day.” They are usually deposited in characteristic areas – thighs, buttocks, abdomen and can increase in size by almost 40 times.
These conglomerates of cells (called cellulae) squeeze connective tissue septa, lymphatic vessels and capillaries. Part of the fat cells is literally “squeezed out” from the lower to the middle layer of the dermis, and bumps appear on the surface of the skin, the relief becomes uneven and resembles an “orange peel”.

Why Cellulite is Bad
Believe me, the external manifestation of cellulite is not as scary as the internal one. As a result of a violation of blood microcirculation, an imbalance appears between the synthesis of fat and its cleavage: cellulose does not participate (!) in metabolic processes in the body, i.e. cellulite is, of course, not a foreign body, but no longer adipose tissue with active metabolism. With cellulite, fat is “locked” in cells (there is no lymph and blood flow), and the body cannot use it, even when it is needed.

Cellulite as a result of modern lifestyle
Most of the women who turn to cosmetologists for the treatment of cellulite have “grown” it themselves: their lifestyle, habits, diet, chosen profession and so on, one way or another, the girls themselves contributed to the formation of the “orange peel”.
According to experts, the main factor in the formation of cellulite is hereditary predisposition. However, there are other reasons that provoke the appearance of cellulite on the skin, namely: age-related changes; hormonal imbalance; diseases of the thyroid and pancreas; circulatory disorders and metabolism in adipose tissue; a sharp fluctuation in weight (after rapid weight loss, cellulite already existing in a woman will simply become more noticeable); physical inactivity (sedentary lifestyle, lack of movement, etc.). But most importantly, excess weight is not the cause of cellulite. Doctors divide cellulite into 3 forms: fatty, edematous, fibrous.
In addition, there are five stages of cellulite:
“Soft cellulite” (there is a slight swelling and swelling);
Puffiness increases, and the skin loses elasticity;
“Hard cellulite” (an “orange peel” appears when the skin is taken into the fold);
The “orange peel” is visible all the time, the skin becomes pale and cold to the touch, pressure causes pain;
Gradual growth of cellulite and an increase in the degree of severity, cellulite appears on the forearms and hands.
It is believed that stage 1-3 cellulite is a cosmetic defect, and stage 4-5 cellulite is a pathology that requires qualified treatment. Depending on the type of cellulite and the stage of its development, cosmetologists offer patients a complex of various anti-cellulite procedures.

How to fight cellulite
Modeling creams. The best tools for modeling the waist area contain active ingredients – lipolytics (caffeine, carnitine, fucus, etc.) that accelerate the process of lipolysis (fat breakdown), they are the ones that fight excess adipose tissue. The funds should be applied with ascending massage movements (up) to cleansed skin – after a shower and scrub.

An integrated approach. In solving the problem of cellulite, the concept of “fighting on all fronts” is very important: a balanced diet, drinking, physical education, cosmetic procedures, massage and hardware techniques, home skin care.
Time. Cellulite correction is a long and painstaking process. As a rule, it takes from 4 weeks to 3 months. The achieved results will need to be constantly maintained (repeat the course of anti-cellulite procedures 1-2 times a year) and follow the simple recommendations of a cosmetologist and a nutritionist.
