One of the worst enemies of women is cellulite, also known as orange peel. This accumulation of fatty tissue in certain parts of the body forms small indentations in the skin of the affected area, making it look uneven and unhealthy. The areas that have cellulite end up accumulating more and more fatty tissue, water and toxins, which means that the more advanced it is, the more difficult it is to treat it. But what can you do to combat cellulite?
"Prevention is better than regret," says the old saying that is usually true in most cases. On average, 98% of women have some degree of cellulite, so it is important to start taking measures to prevent it from an early age. Regular aerobic exercise, constant consumption of foods low in saturated fats and sugars, choosing fresh fruits and vegetables as a constant part of our diet, and consuming at least 6 glasses of water a day can make the difference between developing or not the so-called “orange peel”or cellulite.
In general, any type of aerobic exercise that increases your heart rate and encourages accelerated blood flow will help treat cellulite. Of course, performing exercises focused on strengthening the muscle mass of the affected area are another very good alternative. The legs, tail, stomach and arms are usually the most common parts for the appearance of cellulite. Swimming, tennis and aerobic walking are within the group of exercises that make all areas of the body work. At home, going up and down stairs and squatting will help you strengthen your leg muscles. In this same measure try to maintain a stable weight.
