Inevitably, we become our worst critic, which is pretty unfair when you consider that cellulite is just one of those things you either have or don’t have.
It’s not about whether you’ve done something right or wrong either way, there are just too many contributing factors to the cause of cellulite that there’s no way to isolate just one.
Thankfully there are treatments that can improve the appearance of cellulite today, so that anyone struggling with self-esteem issues as a result of it, have a positive way of taking charge of these fat deposits under the skin, with the help of professionals of course.
The different grades of cellulite:
Grade 1: This grade of cellulite is only noticeable if your skin is pinched.
Grade 2: This is when cellulite appears when you’re standing but then disappears when you take the weight off your feet to lie down.
Grade 3: This is the tougher one, where cellulite is apparent any which way you look at it.
But what is cellulite?
First a reality check; almost everyone has cellulite, even those in awesome shape! Cellulite is very basically fatty deposits that lie under the skin and love to hang out on the hips, thighs and upper arms, for men and women.
Cellulite isn’t just an issue for women, men feel the appearance of these unwanted ‘dimples’ as keenly as we do!
How did it happen?
Well, there’s no one answer to this question, for anyone. There isn’t any one thing that can be to blame, but here are a few things that together, or separately may cause cellulite:
- Hormonal imbalances
- Toxins that accumulate over time
- Unhealthy diet
- Weight gain
- Sedentary lifestyle
This is cellulite that doesn’t attach itself to the muscle, making it more noticeable, but also easier to treat because it is closer to the surface than its harder counterpart. Soft cellulite also tends to affect larger areas of the body than hard cellulite does.
This is a tougher nut to crack and treat, because it’s harder to see due to the fact that it is closer to the muscles and doesn’t move the way softer cellulite does closer to the surface of the skin. This type of hard cellulite is often found in bodies that are more athletically inclined and is far more of a challenge to treat.
