What is cellulite?
Cellulite is not the result of too much fat in your body. The actual cause of cellulite occurs internally with the weakening of the skin cells and connective tissue. As the skin sustains damage from a myriad of sources, such as aging and the environment, it loses its essential water and weakens. Cellulite and stretch marks are caused by skin that has deteriorated and dehydrated to the point where buoyant fat cells trapped just below the skin are able to push into the dermis, the middle layer of skin, and show through the surface.
If we are to repair cellulite and stretch marks, we need to focus on repairing the dermis, not on burning fat. By simply adding key skin hydrating, cell-fortifying nutrients to our diets we can rebuild, re-hydrate, and revitalize our skin, forcing stubborn fat cells back invisibly below the surface – and keeping them there.
Why do I have cellulite?
It’s not because you’ve been slacking off at the gym. Cellulite is not a “fat” problem – rather it is a “dermal” and “cellular” problem. The actual cause of cellulite is water damage, and weakening of the skin cells and connective tissue due to environmental damage, aging and hormones.
