Our body fat is a lovely lipid. We rely on our body fat for thermo-regulation, for cushioning in the body, and for energy storage. The female body is very efficient at fat storage, as we need it to sustain us and our babies through pregnancy and breast feeding, which require a massive amount of energy and calories. When food and nutrition are scarce, our fat storage efficiency is very handy. Today, most of us have plenty of access to food, and we are sometimes less than pleased with our fat stores, especially when it comes to cellulite.
The term cellulite was first used in the United States in 1966 in the April edition of Voguemagazine. And, thanks in large part to “beauty” magazines, there is a lot of clamor, confusion, and concern about cellulite today, even though about 80% of women have it somewhere on their bodies and it is considered medically normal and a purely cosmetic occurrence.
The best treatment for cellulite is to learn to love your body just as it is. Steer clear of critical thoughts and caustic comparisons. Appreciate the beauty of your unique form and gaze in amazement at the stunningly intricate functions going on inside your body.
There are a few lifestyle changes that may help to minimize the appearance of cellulite
Massage, excellent nutrition, pure water hydration, stress management, movement and sweating, and dry-brushing.
