Cellulite: how to fight effectively?


How to fight effectively?

What is cellulite?

Cellulite, also known as "dimples" or "orange peel skin", is the result of an inflammation of the fatty cells of the adipose tissue present in the body. It is a collection of fat cells that lie under the skin and reach maximum storage capacity, giving the skin a "bumpy" appearance, considered unsightly.


Cellulite is observed especially on the back of the thighs, on the buttocks, stomach and upper arms. This complex phenomenon results from the combination of several factors, including female hormonal variations . Considered a normal physiological phenomenon , cellulite mainly affects women, regardless of their age or morphology.


This is explained for genetic reasons, in particular, since the female body contains more fat cells than that of the man, in order to ensure the increased needs of the body during pregnancy or breastfeeding.


Nearly 9 out of 10 women are paid for it at some point or

another in their lifetime, compared to 1 in 50 men.

How does cellulite form?

Cellulite reflects a dysfunction of the adipose tissue of the hypodermis, that is to say fat cells.

Within the hypodermis , fat cells, or adipocytes, are housed in small fibrous and fairly rigid compartments. Adipocytes grow as storage increases. They can multiply their size up to 50 times. Thus, when we gain weight, the volume of the fat cell increases.

On the other hand, when we retain water, excess water accumulates within the tissues of the body and surrounds the fat cells.

These two phenomena impact the fibrous partitions of the hypodermis: they are unable to distend and are compressed since they are arranged in a grid. Thus, these “small compartments” swell and this affects the dermis and the epidermis. The surface of the skin then becomes bumpy, hence the expressions “orange peel skin” or “dimples”.

The combination and succession of several factors can explain the causes of cellulite:

  • An excess of fat

Adipose cellulite can appear in the event of excessive consumption of bad fats (cooked fats, saturated fats) and/or due to a lack of physical activity.

Excess fat swells fat cells (adipocytes), disrupts circulation and causes the accumulation of toxins creating tissue inflammation. Some areas of the body are more affected than others, simply because there are more fat cells there (hips, thighs, buttocks).

  • A circulatory or hormonal problem

Blood circulation disorders are due to the compression of the lymphatic vessels by excessively large fat cells. This leads to a buildup of fluid in the tissues causing swelling (edema) which aggravates the circulatory problem.

In women, normal hormonal activity, possibly amplified by puberty, pregnancy, menopause or taking the pill, creates fluid retention which contributes to reinforcing the problem.

  • Water retention and waste accumulation

The circulation, thus disturbed by the excess storage or the circulatory problem, reduces the capacities of drainage and elimination of waste and causes an accumulation of water and toxins in the tissues which will then swell and form an irregular aspect to the surface of the skin.

How to fight cellulite?

There is no miracle recipe to make cellulite disappear, but effective solutions to reduce it . Diet and sport help but are not enough since cellulite is fat trapped and poorly irrigated in a network of fibers where the lipolysis process is not very active. Our only trainer therefore cannot eliminate cellulite.

To fight against cellulite, you must:

1- Treat cellulite itself

The idea is to "break" the cellulite with massages to release the fat and make it mobilizable again via the lipolysis process. Massages and creams, anti-cellulite devices or sessions in a specialized institute you are pumping.

Massages stimulate the tissues, tone the skin, energize microcirculation and stimulate lymphatic circulation. You can use essential oils (lemon, rosemary, sage, geranium, etc.) or an anti-cellulite draining cream to amplify the effects.

An effective massage is practiced daily from bottom to top, ideally after a hot shower to facilitate the penetration of the cream. Palpate-rolling is an effective technique and consists of pleating and rolling the skin of the area to be drained with the fingers. Finish your toilet with a jet of fresh water from the ankles to the buttocks.

2- Treat the cause of cellulite or the aggravating factors

The idea is to promote circulation and venous return to promote the elimination of water, toxins and fat, and if necessary, limit the storage of fat or even destock it.

The following tips will help you treat the causes of cellulite:

  • Walk! Walking activates the plantar pump and the calf muscle pump which provide 80% of venous return.
  • Drink a lot . Water or green tea, known for its draining effect. Hydration promotes drainage and the elimination of waste.
  • Avoid smoking: tobacco clogs cells and disrupts blood circulation.
  • Choose carbohydrates with a low glycemic load (unrefined products) and, to limit their consumption, combine them with fibers (vegetables, legumes, cereals, fruits) and proteins.

The Action-Capitons Program : the natural and effective D-LAB solution

D-LAB NUTRICOSMETICS has developed a program specially formulated to treat dimples and their internal causes.

This ultra-complete program contains 34 active ingredients that act in synergy to drive out excess water, boost blood circulation and activate fat burning, for a firmer body and smoother skin.

The Action-Capitons Program acts on 3 axes:

1 - Promotes the elimination of excess water (Draining Detox)

Water retention traps fat and gives the skin a dimpled appearance. Thanks to depurative herbal medicine, excess water is drained to make room and be able to access deep fat. In this formula, fennel and bearberry extracts promote elimination through the urinary route.

2 - Promotes good blood circulation (Active Circulation Complex)

Thanks to the extracts of horse chestnut and sweet clover rich in coumarin, we will then relaunch the blood circulation compressed by the fat cells and strengthen the venous walls to prevent water from escaping again.

3 - Activates the burning of these released fats (Metabolism Activator)

To accelerate weight loss, it promotes the burning of fat released with kola nut, cayenne pepper and raspberry ketones. Day by day, the body becomes firmer and the skin smoother.
