Although it is great to focus on your diet and exercise in the battle against cellulite, one fact is for sure, you won’t get anywhere if you don’t look after your connective tissues.
How is the skin structured?
First, let’s have a look at the anatomy that runs skin deep. Your outermost layer of skin is known as the Epidermis, which consists of 6 layers, but all in all is actually paper thin. In these layers you have your immune cells, pigment cells and its main function is to act as a protective barrier to the elements.
The next layer is your dermis. This layer is filled with sweat glands, hair follicles, blood vessels, nerve receptors and connective tissue known as collagen and elastin.
The layer beneath that is the first of three layers of subcutaneous fat. And it is here where those lumpy lumps form. These layers consists of “standing fat cell chambers, which are separated by connective tissue. The fat cell chambers also have protrusions of fat cells which connect to the dermis. When the subcutaneous fat layer is uneven, it gives that orange peel effect we have all come to know and despise..
How does connective tissue influence how your cellulite looks?
When the connective tissue, which is lending the support and structure to keep these fatty chambers upright become weak, your dimples become more prominent. This is the start of cellulite.
What affects your connective tissue to become weak?
Many factors play a role, but the most important reasons why connective tissue becomes weak is due to hormones, lack of exercise, reductions in muscle tone, excess fat and poor circulation. Poor circulation restricts fresh blood carrying oxygen and much needed nutrients to the connective tissue, and you can imagine when you don’t water a plant..it becomes weak and the process of degeneration begins.
What improves your connective tissue structure?
In one simple word, we can say MASSAGE! And by that we mean deep, proper and result yielding massage. This is why the Bellabaci Genie and Cupping Massage system has been such a success. The application of the correct product (we recommend either the Cellulite Be Gone or Skin Get a Life Genie) is reinforced by the process of reverse osmosis. The cups also work up to 4 inches deep, and an immediate boost in circulation sees to the nourishment of all the cells, from the most superficial to the deepest of cells. This keeps your connective tissues in top form, and also your cellulite at bay. Isn’t it time you try what really works?
