3 Ways the Summer Sun Can Worsen the Appearance of Cellulite

Posted by Nima Rafizadeh on

You’ve been waiting all winter to get outside to enjoy the warm summer sun and we have to ruin it by telling you the sun can ruin the appearance of your cellulite.

First, it’s not all bad news. You can easily enjoy being outside in summer without worrying about the sun making your cellulite look worse.

How the Sun Affects Your Cellulite

Well, it’s not really the sun itself, but the harmful UV rays in sunshine. And we can all tolerate some sun exposure without any ill effects, but that can be just a few minutes some days if you don’t use sun protection.

Over-exposure to the sun’s UV rays can harm your skin in the following ways that can make your cellulite appear worse than normal

1.Damages Collagen

Collagen is the most abundant protein in your body. Like all proteins, it promotes cell growth, particularly in the connective tissue throughout your body, including in your bones, muscles, tendons and skin.

Collagen makes your skin stronger and more elastic. UV Rays can damage the collagen in your skin, which weakens the skin and makes it more susceptible to the puckering of cellulite

2.Causes Uneven Thickening of the Skin

UV rays can cause solar elastosis, which is an uneven thickening of the skin due to overexposure to the sun. The thickened skin can appear yellow and bumpy. Even if you didn’t have cellulite, solar elastosis would make it look like you did.

3.Robs the Skin of Moisture

The sun dries the skin in a way that causes it to wrinkle and crack. Even worse, it robs the skin of the moisture that keeps the skin elastic and strong, so it can make your cellulite dimples look deeper.
You might need to do more than usual to keep your skin healthy and your cellulite minimized during the summer. Wearing anti-cellulite Mass & Slim shapewear that’s clinically proven to reduce inches and the appearance of cellulite can help.
