Cellulite is a common concern for many, presenting itself as a dimpled, lumpy and textured skin in areas such as the thighs, hips, buttocks and abdomen. Whilst it is completely normal and affects people of all sizes and shapes, many seek ways to reduce its appearance. In this blog post, we’ll explore various methods to reduce cellulite, from professional treatments to lifestyle changes and more.

How does cellulite form?

Before diving into various treatments, it’s important that we understand how cellulite forms and what it is. Cellulite occurs when fat deposits push through the connective tissue beneath the skin, causing the dimpled, textured appearance that many of us are familiar with. It can be caused for numerous reasons, some of them being factors such as genetics, hormonal changes and diet.

Treatment & remedies

Healthy & balanced diet

A healthy and balanced diet is not only vital for one’s individual health but can also reduce the appearance of cellulite by improving circulation, reducing inflammation, supporting collagen production, and aiding in fat reduction. Consuming a variety of fruits and vegetables, lean proteins, whole grains, and healthy fats helps improve skin texture and elasticity while preventing fluid retention. Combined with regular exercise and a healthy lifestyle, these dietary choices make cellulite less noticeable

Staying hydrated & moisturised

Staying hydrated and moisturised is important for reducing cellulite because hydration maintains skin elasticity and firmness, making cellulite less noticeable. Proper hydration ensures that the skin remains plump, reducing the dimpled appearance of cellulite. Additionally, well hydrated skin supports circulation and lymphatic drainage, which can help prevent fluid retention and toxin buildup that exacerbate cellulite. Moisturising the skin externally helps maintain its suppleness and can enhance the overall texture, further diminishing the visibility of cellulite. Together, these remedies improve skin health and appearance, making cellulite less prominent.

Dry brushing

Dry brushing can reduce the appearance of cellulite by improving circulation, stimulating lymphatic drainage and can even exfoliate the skin. The brushing motion enhance blood flow, reduce puffiness and smooths any uneven skin texture. Exfoliation is vital when reducing cellulite as it promotes cell renewal, making the skin softer and less dimpled in appearance. For best results, use a natural bristle brush and start at the feet and work upwards. Brush in circular motions for best results and be gentle on the skin to reduce any irritation or inflammation.

Aqualyx improves the appearance of cellulite by using deoxycholic acid to break down fat cells, which the body then metabolises and eliminates, reducing underlying fat deposits. This process smooths the skin’s surface, enhances lymphatic drainage to remove excess fluids and toxins, and stimulates collagen production, improving skin elasticity and firmness. Multiple treatment sessions are typically required, and while temporary swelling and bruising may occur post-treatment, the overall effect is a reduction in the appearance of cellulite.
