While cellulite is mostly an inside job, there are outside areas to address also.
I think most people would share this opinion, cellulite is gross and nobody wants to endure this!
While cellulite can be an issue for men and women, the simple known fact is that about 90% of women will experience this undesirable condition at some point in your life.
It’s just not fair…
Thankfully, you can do something about this.
First, let me discuss the inside job with the 4 main factors.
Estrogen is also a key hormone involved in healthy vascular circulation in women. When estrogen levels fluctuate, it reduces blood circulation to the connective tissues, weakening them in the process and these hormonal changes also affect lymphatic circulation. That leaves stagnant lymph trapped in weakened connective tissue and may increase the appearance of cellulite.
Estrogen can also contribute to cellulite by adding fat and I will discuss the role of fat deeper just below. Excess fat accumulation can be triggered by estrogen dominance, a common hormonal imbalance in which too much estrogen circulates in the body. Estrogen dominance can happen at any time in a woman’s life, even during perimenopause and menopause. So either estrogen dominance or fluctuating estrogen hormones can lead to the accumulation of cellulite.
Most often, women that have cellulite due to estrogen imbalances, this is driven by a stress hormone system that out of balance.

This is a huge factor due to the fact that both insulin and inflammation play a big role in cellulite, both of which are easily controlled by the food you eat.
Both insulin and inflammation play a big role in the accumulation of fat.
When your insulin levels are elevated, this contributes to the storage of body fat. You know that extra unwanted fat on the thigh, buttocks and belly.
Not welcomed at all, I get it.
And inflammation is another impact for you. Understand that when your body is inflamed, this leads to a rise in fat cells in your body. This rise in fat cells will then lead an insulin resistance and insulin surges. These insulin surges will then lead to…
Just the hamster wheel you do not want to be caught in.
Unfortunately, many are.
There are many ways to help insulin and inflammation from a food perspective. One avenue is to incorporate a ketogenic diet. If this is a new concept to you, I would suggest clicking here for a basic understanding of keto.
A ketogenic diet would help you with weight loss, insulin regulation and in reducing inflammation.

Another benefit nutritionally to help with busting cellulite is to increase your collagen.
Collagen is an important protein used to make the connective tissue in your skin, tendons, ligaments, and blood vessels. Structural changes in the skins tissues, including weakened collagen and elastin fibers, makes cellulite more apparent because the skin becomes thinner and less able to conceal the irregularities created by the superficial fat and connective tissue just below its surface.
This is a simple and effective way to help to bust that annoying cellulite. This is the collagen that we have not only in our office, in our home as well.

To wrap this up, keep your insulin low, reduce inflammation and increase your collagen.
Hydration is crucial for overall health, from digestion to your skin’s healthy glow and texture. Being fully hydrated can smooth your skin’s surface.
I recommend drinking approximately 32 ounces of water for every 50 pounds of body weight daily as a general rule of thumb. To me more appropriate for yourself, also pay attention to the color of your urine. If your urine is clear, you over over hydrated and likely wasting your electrolyte minerals. If your urine is a bright yellow or orange color, you are likely dehydrated. You would like your urine to have just a slight tinge of yellow.
Let’s make this simple. You’re toxic, I’m toxic and everybody we know is toxic on some level. This is a simple reality of the work we live in and the atmosphere that impacts you every day.
Your body prefers to store toxins in fat because this is the safest space to store these poisons.
So when you are toxic (likely) you have the extra bit of fat for the body to store toxins so the precious vital organs and body functions are less compromised by exposure to those extra toxins. The dimples and pockets of your cellulite are also storing toxins.
I do not feel that it is appropriate to make aggressive detoxification recommendations in a general way, so be sure to stay properly hydrated, eat your veggies and drink veggie juice to assist your body with this naturally.
You can also dry skin brush, jump on a rebounder daily, take Epsom salts baths, stimulate sweating and get in an infrared sauna to help your body to detox naturally.
And how about the outside of your body?
What do I mean by the outside job?
There’s so much on the market today that you put on your skin that claims to get rid of cellulite. To date, I have never witnessed a topical cream have any long term success.
There is an avenue for you to work on the outside of the body to help bust the cellulite though and this is a system referred to as endermologie.
What is Endermologie?
Endermologie is a non surgical procedure and is the first cellulite treatment to be approved by the American Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Not only does endermologie help improve the appearance of cellulite, but it can also improve circulation, relieve minor muscular aches, improve skin tone and skin radiance.
This machine was originally invented in Europe to be used to break down scar tissue and it was soon recognized to assist with health on other levels, such as increasing circulation and helping move the lymphatic system.
And the other celebrated benefit of Endermologie is it’s positive impact on helping your body rid itself of cellulite.
We have used endermologie at Depke Wellness for over a decade and consistently witness success in reducing and eliminating cellulite.
