Contrary to what most people think, cellulite skin condition is common. This is probably why more and more myths about cellulite skin condition are popping up. Among the abundant myths, the following are the most common:
Only Fat Women Get Cellulite
Even thin and fit individuals can have cellulite skin condition. It is true that 95% of women generally suffer from cellulite. There are however also thousands of men who also have the same condition.
Both men and women who have cellulite are also not necessarily fat or obese individuals. Even thin people can have cellulite. This is because there is some evidence that cellulite may be caused by genetic predispositions or increased estrogen hormone levels.
All I Need is Exercise
This is the most common misconception of people about cellulite. Exercise alone cannot eliminate cellulite that is already present. Some say this is because cellulite is a form of fat that is trapped and cannot be properly burned by exercise. Exercise however can effectively reduce your total body fat even before cellulite appears. Trim and fit people may have cellulite but the cellulite skin condition may be less visible in them and may be seen only by pinching cellulite areas.
The right training exercise program, as well as an active lifestyle can improve the blood flow necessary for toxic waste elimination. Having an active lifestyle therefore almost always beats a sedentary one.
All I Need is a Good Diet
Another common myth for cellulite condition is the diet. It is true that eating the right kinds of foods cannot erase cellulite. If you eat less fats and more grains, fruits and vegetables however, you will be able to reduce your body fat and clean up your system. Eating the proper diet can help you get more antioxidants that can fight free radicals that can make your cellulite skin condition worse.
Liposuction is the Only Solution For Me
It was once believed that liposuction is the only solution for the cellulite skin condition. This is no longer the case. Cellulite can actually get worse because of liposuction. Liposuction is also not for everyone. It is a surgical procedure that works best only among young patients. Liposuction is generally a shaping method and can only be used by people who are already more or less close to fit and would just like a little muscular or body definition.
There is No Solution for Cellulite
There is no need to just live with your cellulite skin condition. Eating right and exercising can help prevent your condition from worsening. The right lifestyle however needs to be supplemented by other treatments. Some topical cellulite creams for example have been proven to be effective. It is true though that there are really topical rip off products that cannot really bring about any results. Some natural products however have shown great promise as cellulite treatments. Product with caffeine, green tea extract, algae extract and retinol A may be good products to use as cellulite treatment.
