How do I keep cellulite at bay?

From thighs to buttocks to arms, cellulite can rear its ugly head just about anywhere. Easily recognizable due to its bumpy appearance, cellulite makes some parts of your body appear untoned. Got cellulite? Find out how to get rid of it as effectively as possible.

1. Start by identifying what kind of cellulite you have.

To get rid of your cellulite, you need to start by identifying the type you have. There are three types of cellulite: adipose, aqueous and fibrous. To tell them apart, start by pinching your skin. If the pinched area doesn't feel painful and has the texture of orange peel, it is most probably adipose cellulite, the most common form of cellulite and linked to excess fat. If the pinched area isn't painful and very little orange peel texture can be seen on the surface, you have aqueous cellulite, which results from water retention. And finally, if the pinched area is painful, hard, and has an orange peel texture, then you have fibrous cellulite. This long-standing cellulite is caused by an overproduction of rigid collagen fibers deep in the adipose tissue.

2. Body Fit, your slimming trainer

3. Lifestyle: A key factor

Lifestyle plays a key role in keeping bumpy skin at bay. If you have aqueous cellulite, prevent water retention in your skin tissue by embracing a low-sodium diet with lots of plant proteins. Boost your lymphatic and blood circulation with aerobic activities. Drink enough water to encourage your body to eliminate excess fluid in your system. If you have adipose or fibrous cellulite, embrace a healthy diet by restricting your processed sugar and unhealthy fat intake and try aerobic activities to burn off excess fat.

And there you have it: All the tips you need to banish cellulite for good!
