What is Body Fit?

1. Fat and adipocyte cellulite

From thighs to buttocks to arms, cellulite can rear its ugly head just about anywhere. Cellulite is the result of excess fat that accumulates in adipocytes, the adipocyte tissue's cells. This is why this type of cellulite is referred to as “adipocyte.” As they swell to accommodate the fat, the adipocytes deform the surface of the skin, resulting in dreaded bumpy skin. When fat isn't burned off, it's often because calorie intake exceeds calorie output.

2. When adipocyte cellulite becomes fibrous cellulite

If your cellulite feels painful to the touch, you have the fibrous kind. This long-standing cellulite is caused by an overproduction of rigid collagen fibers deep in the adipocyte tissue. These fibers “trap” the adipocytes and harden your skin, resulting in tenderness and pain.

3. Water and aqueous cellulite

There's a third type of cellulite, too: aqueous cellulite. Aqueous cellulite is caused by excess water stored in your skin tissue. This occurs when lymphatic circulation is sluggish and not active enough to drain all excess fluid in the body. Aqueous cellulite isn't painful and isn't as visible when you pinch the affected areas.

4. Body Fit, the perfect gel cream for targeting all three types of cellulite

Clarins developed Body Fit to help fight all types of cellulite. When applied daily using the targeted massage techniques, this refreshing gel cream smooths and firms skin, leaving your figure trim and toned. Bumpy skin is smoothed away, whatever the root cause of your cellulite.
