5 Myths About Cellulite That Need to End

We all want to look good, but it happens that cellulite spoils the whole picture. Sometimes, in order to get rid of the hated orange peel, we all start looking for information and ways to do it faster. And stumble upon… myths about cellulite.

Today we will examine the most common myths about cellulite, which for a long time were considered proven ways to fight cellulite.

Myths About Cellulite

Myth 1: Cardio workouts will help you defeat cellulite
Undoubtedly, physical activity is very important when you are trying to get rid of cellulite. But a treadmill or aerobics will not be the best helpers in this. In fact, strength training and stretching are better at fighting cellulite.

Cardio workouts will only help to reduce the appearance of dimples, while strength training will help to really smooth out the skin.

Squats and lunges with dumbbells should be your favorite exercises if you want tight and beautiful skin without cellulite.

Myth 2: Only overweight people suffer from cellulite.
Cellulite is a weakening of the connective tissue. This factor is influenced by muscle tone, hormones, overall fat mass and even a bit of genetics.

The only bit of truth here is that being overweight makes cellulite more noticeable. But that doesn’t mean that thin people shouldn’t be wary of it at all.

Myth 3: If you lose weight, you will get rid of cellulite.

Just losing weight will not be enough to get rid of cellulite. Fighting the “orange” crust is a complex campaign and revision of your habits. Even the amount of salt consumed or very tight clothing provokes the appearance of hateful lumps on the skin.

By losing weight with the help of rigid diets and intense cardio training, when the muscles do not have time to recover and simply “burn”, you can acquire not the body you dreamed of. A striking example of a girl with a “skinny fat” physique. Quite often, despite the thinness, the owner of such a body can notice cellulite in the buttocks and thighs.

Myth 4: Non-invasive procedures will get rid of cellulite forever.

Apparatus procedures only (even very expensive ones), unfortunately, will not get rid of cellulite permanently. These procedures have a temporary effect and require repetition. If you do not change your lifestyle, the effect of the procedure will quickly come to naught.
Nevertheless, in a complex of procedures in the fight against cellulite, which includes strength training, proper balanced diet and skin care, such procedures will certainly be a plus.

Myth 5: Toxin remedies are a great way to get rid of cellulite.

Cellulite is caused by weak connective tissue, poor circulation, lack of muscle tone, lack of exercise and long periods of sitting in one position, but not by toxins in the body.

You may have seen a lot of information that detoxing your body will help you get rid of cellulite, but the fact remains that there is no scientific evidence linking toxins to cellulite yet.
