Roughly 90% of women suffer from some degree of cellulite. Most of us can’t help but think that the condition is our fault and we could have done something along the way to prevent it, whether it is the things we eat, the way we sit or maybe the amount of exercise we do.
Myth Buster Alert!
Exercise alone cannot eliminate cellulite! While exercise and a healthy diet can tone the body, they fail to address the main causes of cellulite: genetics, hormones, toxicity and aging skin. Cellulite is a chronic microcirculatory disorder that affects the skin as well as fat. Skin therapists are experts in treating skin aging and with Pevonia’s Phyto-Elite® Intensive Body Corrector, therapists now have the ultimate tool to become the ideal resource for addressing toxin and fatbuild up, too!
* Cellulite doesn’t mean that you are overweight
If you have cellulite, it doesn’t necessarily mean that you are overweight, though excessive weight will make cellulite more pronounced. The weakening of collagen in the skin causes cellulite and anyone can get it, overweight or skinny.
* It’s More Common in Women Than in Men
How unfair is this? Women’s skin collagen is arranged in parallel rows, like pillars. This pattern lends itself to the compartmentalization of fat, which makes cellulite visible. Men’s collagen, however, is arranged in an X-pattern. This creates only very small fat compartments and doesn’t allow for dimpling of the skin.
* Losing Weight Doesn’t Make Cellulite Disappear
Yes, having more body fat ups your chances of having visible cellulite. But even when you slim down, the tissue is still stretched and damaged.
* UV Rays Worsen the Appearance of Cellulite
One more reason to use sunscreen religiously: UV rays can damage collagen, making cellulite more noticeable. Remember to slather on SPF.
* Myth: Cellulite only happens to older people
While cellulite does increase with age, even young people can shows signs of the dreaded dimpling. There is no age exception. Genetics, hormones, and body make-up—where you store excess fat—determine cellulite formation.
* Myth: You can remove cellulite by working out a certain area
Cellulite-targeting exercises are a fiction, but it is true that toning your muscles overall can reduce the cottage-cheese effect. Building muscle in your thighs, for example, can plump the muscle there and reduce cellulite somewhat, but your body burns fat at the same exact rate all over your body. This means cellulite or fat on your thighs will burn at the same rate as your belly. So, while you are helping the areas you’re working appear more toned, you’re not burning fat there any quicker than you are on the rest of your body.
