As it is always said, ‘prevention is better than cure’. It is always better to prevent yourself from cellulite other than treat it. This is by engaging in healthy eating habits, engaging in physical activities, dressing appropriately through avoidance of tight clothes, avoiding lifestyle factors such as smoking, among others. However, cellulite may occurs accidentally as a result of genetic and hormonal factors.
In the event that cellulite occurs some therapeutically although not scientifically proven methods can be used to deal with it. These are for instance;
- Radial Waves therapy
- Magnetic therapy
- electrical simulation
- Heat Therapy
- Pneumatic Massages
- Lymphatic Flow stimulation massages
However, apart from the therapeutically measures, some drugs have been manufactured to act on fats in our bodies. “These drugs have been used to fight cellulite and have proved effective to a greater percentage.” These pharmacological agents include;
- Ginkgo biloba
- Beta-agonists and adrenaline
In addition, some women with cellulite have adopted unique clothing habits. This is by clothing in compression garments with an aim of reducing the appearance of cellulite. However, these garment tend to compress arteries and veins hence interfering with the smooth running of blood in the body. If not effectively used, these garment worsen the situation other than treating it.
The effectiveness of anti-cellulite creams have been questioned on different grounds. Many people claim that they are effective while equally a number of people claim that they are not effective. Dermatologist from different universities have shown that there is no scientific proof to show that anti-cellulite creams work. In fact, some claims that it is a major disappointment to women who claim they can fight cellulite using anti-cellulite creams.
Bearing in mind that there is no scientific approved treatment for cellulite, the best way is to avoid it. The most effective way to avoid cellulite is eating low fat food for example vegetables and fiber. Many people across the world have shifted their lifestyles to junk food such as sausages, cakes, hot-dogs, and hamburgers, among others. These foods have exposed them to cellulite to a greater extent. They should thus avoid them. In addition, people should exercise regularly to maintain weight in a stable condition. Finally, people should watch their dressing habits. They should avoid tight pants and choose loose fitting garments. Adherence to these factors will drastically reduce cellulite among many people.
