It’s the end of April and it’s time when every girl starts thinking about their “summer bodies” and swimming suits. Women across the world complain about the same skin issue: cellulite. There are many factors that contribute to one’s susceptibility to cellulite development, those being: gender, race, age and body composition.
Women are more susceptible to cellulite development than men because men have more muscle mass. Moreover, studies have proven that caucasian women are more prone to cellulite than African American and Asian women; this is because African American and Asian women have dark skin tones, which means more melanin.
If a woman has more melanin in her skin, she has a stronger resistance to UV rays and a stronger resistance to cellulite development. A lack of melanin is what is responsible for red hair and freckles. So, ladies, it isn’t your imagination: redheads can have more cellulite than the norm.
Here are some of our favorite remedies for the c-word:
1. Coffee Grinds: Rub dry coffee grinds on the area 2-3 times a week. We recommend doing this in the bath tub because it can be a bit messy.
2. Special Lotions: We love Nivea’s Goodbye Cellulite. It really does a great job at tightening the skin and you’re sure to notice a big difference.
The only question left to ask is, how many more days until summer?
