Cellulite can be described as the little dimples on you see on your butt and on other parts of your body such as your thighs. It occurs when fat is deposit beneath the skin. For most women, cellulite doesn’t really bother them until they wear something really tight and all little bumps and dimples can be seen outlined. Quick reality check: there is no magic bullet for eliminating the dimples. Trying to get rid of cellulite on your butt is to set yourself up for disappointment. However, here’s how to have a crack at reducing it.
Resist the sugar
Overindulging in sugary food and drink is something we want to stay clear from if you want to get rid of cellulite. You probably know about the connection between sugar and cellulite: sugar becomes stored in fat cells, causing them to expand, which can increase the dimpled appearance of your butt.
Try to keep your circulation moving – although it can be tricky depending on your job, try not to sit down all day. Parking your butt in that padded chair, whether at home or the office, for hours on end is doing nothing for those patches of cellulite.
Sitting in the same position for extended periods of time can cause your circulation to become sluggish.
Step away from the salt
Salty foods are known for causing fluid retention, which is linked to the appearance of cellulite. This processed sodium can dehydrate the skin enough to make areas of cellulite appear much more noticeable.
However, I’m not condemning all types of salt here – just the highly refined table variety. Himalayan and sea salts are rich in beneficial minerals.
Some exercises can also help to tone down the appearance of cellulite on your butt. These include squats, lunges and glute bridges. Make sure to incorporate these in your workouts and watch the magic happen!
