Proven ways to beat cellulite
First and foremost, what is cellulite?
Cellulite is the unpleasant result of subcutaneous fat, underneath the skin, protruding into the dermis, the layer of skin just below the epidermis (the outermost layer). Within the dermis lies a network of connective tissue that looks pretty much like a honeycomb. When fat cells increase in size, the connective tissue within this layer become weakened and fat bulges through, giving the skin a dimpled appearance.
What it all boils down to is the amount of body fat, distribution of fat, skin thickness, and the strength of your connective fibers determine the extent with which you will be plagued with cellulite.
What’s worse is that this is a case predominantly for the ladies. Men hardly get cellulite thanks to their hardier septae which keeps fat from pushing through.

Why does cellulite happen?
Some have alluded that poor circulation in the skin is the cause for cellulite especially for areas like your butt, thighs, and the back of your upper arms. Another theory is that the health of the skin itself has deteriorated and when combined with declining amounts of collagen (as one would expect as we age), our skin would slacken and become weaker, worsening the appearance of engorged fat cells.
All’s not lost
Although there have been limited studies to prove the effectives of topical oils and creams in effectively treating cellulite, patients have endeared to Gold Oil Retinol Vitamin A Anti-Aging Neck Treatment. Not limited to just the neck, active ingredients such as retinol, found in this product works to rejuvenate skin, with anti-aging and anti-wrinkle properties.
Body treatments such as Cellulite by Thermage has been a popular choice for many looking to smoothen out their dimply skin. Radiofrequency used in Thermage helps to restore the elasticity of the fibrous septae while strengthening the overlying skin at the same time. To better improve circulation in the tissue under the skin, volumetric heating used in Thermage can improve the metabolism of the treated tissue, promoting tissue repair. All in all, improving the firmness and appearance of the treated skin.
If you’re willing to put in a little more effort to reduce cellulite, consider an effective weight loss program. Strength training paired with a healthy diet (think healthy grains, lean proteins, fruits and lots of leafy vegetables and even healthy fats) not only help you to get back to a healthy weight, it can also improve the appearance of cellulite.
