You’ve got it, I’ve got it, just about all of us have it someplace or another – cellulite. Those wrinkly, uneven patches of skin are the bane of anyone who’s ever been bikini shopping. But, what exactly is cellulite? How do you get it? And is there anything you can do to save yourself from a lifetime of “cottage cheese thighs”?
Experts estimate that 80 to 90 percent of all post-pubescent females have cellulite somewhere on their bodies. It most commonly appears on their stomachs, hips or lower limbs. Hormones and genetics play a role in causing the appearance of the rough, dimpled skin, but diet – specifically, a poor one – can worsen the condition. Be sure to take care of yourself if you want to prevent existing cellulite deposits from worsening.
Of course, there is help! Body firming creams, which contain anti-inflammatory properties, can lessen the appearance of dimples and create smoother, sexier skin. Slather it on now and you’ll be beach-ready by the time the warmer weather is here.
