“No one ever died of cellulite and it doesn’t have a direct correlation with any underlying disease.”
That quote is from dermatologist Brent Schillinger and it appears in a great article titled “The Truth About Cellulite”. Why do we think the article is so good? It’s one of the most honest and fair assessments of cellulite, and our current fascination with it that we’ve ever read. And it echoes what we’ve been telling you for years.
Cellulite isn’t bad for you, almost every woman has it, you can’t get rid of it and there’s a strong movement towards accepting it. That last point is interesting. Yes, it’s healthier to accept cellulite for what it is, which is that’s it’s nothing that anyone should stress over. But it doesn’t mean that you have to like it.
Like a mole in the wrong spot, or too-long toes, you can accept your cellulite, but it doesn’t mean you wouldn’t rather be without it.
Put Cellulite to Work for You
Unlike your toes, which would require expensive toe-shortening surgery, you can indeed do something about your cellulite. The ‘Truth’ article tells you that, while it’s not a treatment for cellulite, “lifestyle changes can reduce the appearance of cellulite” and “being active and eating healthy can reduce the chances of getting cellulite, or at least help improve the appearance of it.”
Great! You really can reduce the appearance of your cellulite. And that’s all you really want to do because we know, like long toes, cellulite isn’t bad or unhealthy, you just want to make it look better.
Except, what if you have a bit of a hard time with that “being active and eating healthy” bit. Let’s face it. If your cellulite has been a concern, you’ve probably tried dieting, jogging and gym memberships, or who knows how many other ‘remedies’, mostly without any long term results.
So, what are you to do? First, don’t give up. Second, use your desire to reduce the appearance of cellulite to help you start to make the healthy lifestyle changes that will be the difference. But we’re not talking about jumping on the latest fad diet or spending more money at a health club.
Instead, take the first small steps to eating healthier foods and slowly increasing your activity levels. When you give yourself more achievable goals, you give yourself more chance for success. So, while you used your cellulite to motivate your efforts before, this time you’ll be more likely to stick with it.
If you want to see results sooner, slip on some Mass & Slim shapewear which will immediately add flattering shape to your body. And, as you wear it, it’s massaging action will help reduce the appearance of our cellulite.
