9 foods to get rid of cellulite

Orange peel, saddlebags … If cellulite affects 9 out of 10 women, the nutrients you put on your plate can reduce this phenomenon!

Often present on the back of the thighs or on the buttocks, cellulite gives your skin a rugged appearance. If nearly 9 out of 10 women experience it one day, it remains rarer in men with only 1 in 50. Female hormones such as estrogen and prolactin indeed promote the appearance of cellulite.

If it is still impossible to get rid of completely, you can correct its appearance and reduce it, including making sure that you put on your plate.

No need to inflict drastic diets on yourself: a varied and balanced diet is enough. For example, if your fiber intake is low, but you favor carbohydrates and lipids: this promotes the appearance of cellulite.

The right gestures

Cellulite generally lodges on the thighs, buttocks, stomach and arms. If it has no impact on health, it remains an aesthetic problem that is often poorly experienced.

However, techniques and tips exist to eliminate it depending on the place it is located. In the thighs, the important thing is to stimulate your blood circulation: adopting the jet of cold water after the shower can be a solution. Do not hesitate to massage this area and promote sports activity targeted on the lower body.

To reduce it on the buttocks or on the stomach, bet on a diet rich in fruits such as citrus fruits, rich in vitamins, and draining vegetables such as celery.
