Modern society is very demanding for women. They must have a career, be mothers and wives, and be beautiful at the same time. Society judges women who have a non-standard shape or for example dimples in their hips. People think that cellulite is a vice that needs to be hidden. But cellulite is a disease that appears in women as a result of metabolic and hormonal disorders. Looking at their skin covered with tubercles, women begin to worry, and they are shy of their bodies. Even though 80% of women have cellulite, this is considered an ugliness. This opinion arose under the influence of various marketing cosmetic companies, which imposed on the public the opinion of women of beauty. Also, it is believed that cellulite appears from excess weight. This is not true; many thin women suffer from this disease.
Most often, cellulite occurs on the buttocks, hips, and abdomen. But sometimes women find him on his shoulders, knees, calves, neck. Improper lifestyle and consumption of fatty and sweet foods encourage the development of cellulite even in adolescents. 75% of women aged 20-35 years have signs of cellulite, and after 35 already have 80% of women, and after 35 years, more than 90% of women have a second and third stage of cellulite. These stages have a pronounced aesthetic defect.
Cellulitis became a problem for women at the end of the 20th century. Before this, people believed that tubercles on a female body are a sign of femininity and beauty. Back in the middle of the 20th century, film actresses had magnificent forms and at the same time, they were considered the standard of beauty. Then the fashion world introduced new standards of beauty and thin women with a teenage figure became an example to follow. And since then, the fight against cellulite has become one of the main battles in the life of every woman.
After studying statistics, we noticed that about 95% of women of different ages have cellulite. However, it is rare in men. Scientists explain this fact by the presence of a high level of the hormone estrogen in women. This hormone plays a major role in the appearance of cellulite.
Reasons for the appearance of cellulite:
- hormonal disorders;
- thyroid disease;
- metabolic disorders;
- violation of the proper diet;
- sedentary lifestyle;
- chronic stress;
- chronic fatigue;
Stages of cellulite.
The first stage of cellulite does not bring aesthetic discomfort and a woman may not even know about its presence. Sometimes it looks like a few extra pounds or puffiness. The skin is still smooth.
The second stage of the development of cellulite is characterized by the thickening of body fat and impaired lymphatic edema. Oxygen does not enter the cells and tubercles begin to develop.
The third stage has more pronounced tubercles that spread over the female body. Moreover, if at first glance the skin seems normal, but if you fold it, you will see small balls under the skin. This is cellulite.
The fourth stage is the most difficult stage of the development of cellulite. It is visible on the body and it brings discomfort not only aesthetic. Cellulite-affected areas may hurt. This is explained by the presence of inflammatory processes in the tissues under the skin.
