The fact is that about 90% face the problem of cellulite on the thighs and back of the body. A solution should be sought to remove or at least reduce the unattractive “orange peel”. Fighting cellulite is not easy. The causes can be genetically inherited, slow metabolism, poor circulation and hormonal disorders. This is why skinny and obese people have cellulite. The fact is, however, that by changing your lifestyle (changing your menu, exercising, rejecting bad habits such as smoking and alcohol consumption), cellulite can be drastically reduced and even completely eliminated.
Water – daily consumption of more than 2 liters of water, unsweetened teas (ginger, mint, chamomile, hibiscus). Cellulite is less noticeable on healthy and hydrated skin. Adequate fluid intake is one of the most important allies to improve the appearance of problematic skin of the thighs and back of the body.

They stimulate the secretion of collagen, which is an integral part of connective tissue. Vitamin C is found in fruits and vegetables. B6 is found in green leafy vegetables, legumes, fish and chicken. Vitamin C and B6 supplements help fight cellulite.
Antioxidants – Consumption of foods rich in antioxidants regenerates damaged tissue and neutralizes free radicals. It is good to consume berries, citrus fruits, green leafy vegetables, citrus fruits and carrots, which are rich in vitamins A and E.
Lecithin and fatty acids: Lecithin is found in tomatoes, soy, acrphiol, spinach. These foods should be on the menu often because they prevent the storage of fat on blood vessels and help rebuild damaged tissue. Flax, fish, nuts, peas and broccoli contain fatty acids. Fatty acids promote hydration at the cellular level. They regenerate connective tissue.
In addition to a healthy diet, physical exercise and stress reduction are important for removing cellulite. Massages, peeling of problem areas can help. They should be applied three times in seven days. There are a large number of preparations (creams, gels, lotions) on the market for the care of orange peel and hydration of the affected areas on the body and to improve circulation. These preparations should be used especially if cellulite is in the initial stage of development.
