Cellulite Myths

Cellulite Myths - TheBlackPurple
If you want to get rid of your cellulite, you’ll no doubt have found a “permanent cure” somewhere on the web or in a magazine, only to have your hopes dashed after you tried it and didn’t get the results you wanted. In just two words, the term “permanent cure” tells two lies about cellulite. First, nothing you can do to battle cellulite will get rid of it permanently, unless you keep up the fight. Second, there is no “cure” for cellulite. Regardless of what you hear about miracle creams, diets and seaweed wraps, they will not eliminate cellulite. Many of the false promises are based on commonly-held myths about cellulite. The myths are promoted by an industry that makes millions of dollars by selling you the hope of a quick, permanent way to live life without cellulite – which is simply untrue. Here are just a few of the cellulite myths that you should be on the look out for:

1. You Only Get Cellulite if You’re Overweight

Cellulite is caused by fat cells, just under the surface of the skin, that push up between the tissue that connects the skin to your body. Everyone has that layer of fat to some extent, and cellulite can appear on bodies of all shapes and sizes.

2, Dieting Will Get Rid of Cellulite

Nope. Not true. Dieting may reduce the levels of fat in your body, but it won’t eliminate the dimples. In fact, by causing fluctuations in the levels of fat in your body, dieting can make the dimpling worse.

3. Liposuction Will Take Care of it Once and For All

Nice try. While it might seem to make sense that, if cellulite is caused by fat, sucking all the fat out will make it disappear. But, even if it was possible to suck all the fat out of your body (which it isn’t) your body would immediately produce more. And the liposuction could make the layer of remaining fat uneven, which could actually create larger bumps than what you had before.

There are ways to improve the appearance of your cellulite like anti-cellulite shapewear along with balanced nutrition and exercise, which put together help firm and skulpt your body.
