Cellulite: 4 Ways To Get Over It
By Leanna Brittis
The reality is most women have cellulite whether they care to admit it or not. So, what are the facts on these not-so-cute dimples? Is it genetics, diet or a little bit of both? We've researched all you need to know, plus what you can do to say, "good-bye cellulite and hello smooth bikini legs!" When you gain weight, the number of fat cells don't increase (you're born with an finite number), just the size of the cells do. In order to store more fat in each cell the expanding cells, push up against the surface, causing a dimpled appearance. So, can we do anything about cellulite? While a lot of it has to do with genetics, there are other factors, such as diet and exercise or the lack thereof. Unfortunately, there's no magical cream that will permanently get rid of it . Those fancy creams usually contain a form of collagen that reduces the appearance only temporarily. If you can afford to fork over $5,0000 to $10,000, there are laser treatments that will help smooth the skin. We, however, we recommend the good old-fashion way: a healthy diet and workout regime.
