What is Cellulite and How Do You Treat it?

Cellulite is a very common skin condition that causes the skin to appear lumpy or dimpled. It is mostly found in women on the thighs, hips, buttocks, and stomach areas. The dimpling is caused by pulling and pushing of fat and muscle tissue beneath the skin's surface. Cellulite could also be caused by hormonal factors or genetics. Your genetics determine your skin structure and texture which could result in cellulite to be more apparent. There is no cure for cellulite, however there are many different options of treatments to reduce the appearance of the lumps and dimples. 

The first suggestion most physicians will make to patients displaying cellulite is a change in diet and increase in exercise. Since cellulite is caused by fat cells and muscle tissue, losing fat and toning the muscles may help to reduce the appearance of the lumps and dimples. Your diet should focus on fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and fiber rich foods. You should also try to increase your water intake and stay hydrated. 

Along with diet and exercise there are some skin care products that could also be beneficial. Massaging the area affected by the cellulite will stimulate the skin to release excess fluid and break away fat pockets underneath the surface of the skin. When massaging, you can use a special brush or glove that is designed with bristles to more effectively stimulate the skin deeper than just your hands alone. Pairing the brush with specialized massage oil will create better results by using essential oils to hydrate and tighten the skin. 

Cosmetasa has some exclusive Anti-Cellulite products made to provide you with the best results in reducing the appearance of your cellulite. Some of these products are the Anti-Cellulite Massage oil, Hot Cream, Coffee Scrub, and Massage Brush. 

The Anti-Cellulite Massage Oil is a spa quality oil that stimulates firming, toning and hydrating of the skin using lemon, eucalyptus, and grapefruit essential oils in addition to grapeseed oil. Massaging can also be a great way to help relieve Varicose veins through the stimulation of the body’s circulatory system.

The Hot Cream is enriched with an abundance of different essential oils such as Juniper, Sweet Basil, Rosemary, Grapefruit etc. Each of its superior ingredients targets a different factor of cellulite- be it skin tightening, toning or removal of toxins. This luxurious cream’s unique thermogenic properties also allow it to absorb and penetrate the skin to effectively break down unwanted fat tissue.

The Coffee Scrub is made with caffeine rich arabica coffee and may help to reduce the appearance of eczema, stretch marks, and age spots along with cellulite. The caffeine in the scrub is known to help increase blood flow and reduce fat content within the skin cells, both of which greatly help to diminish the appearance of cellulite.
