The nose too pronounced, the hips too wide, little breasts, orange peel skin: every woman, looking in the mirror, would be able to find any kind of “defect” in the reflected image. All those small imperfections are just the peculiarities that make us who we are.
Taking care of your body is something that must always be done with love and only to please yourself, not out of duty towards the image that society would like of us. Happiness also passes through the acceptance of one’s body for what it is, including imperfections. Those same imperfections that we do not spare even the stars that we follow every day on social networks, some of which have made the body positive a mission.
This is also the mission of Cristina Fogazzi, known by all as the Cynical Beautician, who is also a recognized authority on cellulite. In his blog he shows us that localized fat deposits (the common “fat”) are not edematous cellulite real and not even orange peel skin is, even if there is a lot of confusion in this regard and we often tend to label everything we “don’t like” as cellulite.
Edematous cellulite: what is it?
There edematous cellulite is closely related to stagnation of liquids, a buildup that slow circulation cannot drain properly. To aggravate it then there is a lifestyle that is not exactly healthy and correct, but also genetic factors. And against the latter, unfortunately, there is no revolutionary drug or massage that holds.
What does edematous cellulite look like?
There edematous cellulite to the touch it is rubbery and pasty, with a spongy appearance. The fibrous one is harder, touching it makes you feel a rigid tissue underneath and requires more targeted and “aggressive” interventions.
There is cellulite and cellulite, it also depends on whether the subject is overweight. In fact, when there are several excess kilos it is also likely that more than edematous cellulite, the real problem is a lipoedema.
It is also necessary to dispel the myth that cellulite does not affect women with a thin build: in reality, they are not spared either.
Edematous cellulite: treatments
The remedies that are good for one woman may not be good for another, also because sometimes at the base of cellulite there can be a hormonal problem or a genetic predisposition. Then certainly many bad habits can aggravate the problem or make it emerge more clearly.
These differences must be taken into account in the choice of treatment, but also that miracles do not exist. And then we must not target unrealistic models such as those proposed by social networks and advertising, images that are obviously the result of repeated retouching.
Massages and mud treatments can be of great help, as can the roller technique and other treatments such as draining bandages, pressotherapy, lymph drainage.
On the market there is no shortage creams of all kinds, which also promise surprising results in a short time. The truth is that by themselves, they are of little use and often they are not even products of real quality, as they are presented, so better not be fooled by the hoaxes that these advertisements hide.
Edematous cellulite: diet and nutrition
A Proper nutrition and a balanced diet play an important role in the fight against cellulite as well as on many other fronts, to keep the body healthy. The foods to be preferred are those with low salt content, the number one enemy of cellulite.
And the ideal would be to combine a constant physical activity. Even a simple walk can do a lot, because walking reactivates the circulation, just as aerobic activity favors the drainage of the liquids deposited (against water retention).
And since the key word is “drain” it is indispensable drinking lots of water, perhaps also integrating with herbal teas. The most suitable are those with extracts of birch, red vine, black currant.
