Exercise and Cellulite
Friday, 01 February 2013 00:00

walking_on_a_treadmillAccording to research, a large portion of the weight lost by dieting alone is active tissue, such as muscle and connective tissue, while a smaller fraction is excess fat. Exercise has the opposite effect. It increase lean body mass and decreased this excess fat.

This is great news for cellulite sufferers.

Even though not all those who are obese develop cellulite, being overweight can really trigger the development of cellulite. This is because too much fat under the skin tend to push the connective tissue creating a strain on the skin. Thus cellulite forms. However, this is still dependent on the structure of the cells. If an individual's cell structure does not inhibit the tendency to bulge or expand even if fat deposits accumulate, then there will be no cellulite. So, the most important thing to remember here is to keep those connective tissues firm and strong and avoid accumulating excess fats so as to avoid the development of cellulite.

The way to make the skin not appear quite so dry, and along with that look younger, is to ensure that it is well moisturized.

It is also vitally important to ensure that it is well hydrated and that must come from within.
