Localized adiposity and cellulite: let's discover together everything there is to know!

Localized adiposity is an accumulation of fat tissue In particular areas of the body and varies depending on the physical conformation. A pathology that takes the form of a Increase in the volume and number of adipocytes , But without alterations of the cellular structure or local microcirculation. An increase in “healthy” adipose tissue which, however, involves neither pain nor skin changes.
If you think it's only a female problem, you're wrong.

Adiposity, although in different areas, Affects both sexes ..

In the woman the most marked parts are the hips, the belly, the thighs and the inner knee area. All those areas that make us opt for a nice comfortable dress rather than a tight sheath dress.

In humans, however, the fat deposits accumulate mainly to Abdominal level .. A concrete problem, especially for those who hope to arrive on the beaches with an enviable turtle.

If we talk about Cellulite We mean, instead, a real pathology which, unlike localized adiposity, mainly affects the female sex: an inflammation of the cells of the adipose tissue and local microcirculation, which leads to an increase in hyaluronic acid and therefore to a greater appeal of water. The causes: often genetic and hereditary, sometimes hormonal, in some cases linked to incorrect habits, such as smoking and a sedentary lifestyle, which sclerotic tissues.

As much or as little as it is, cellulite is one of the most hated and fought imperfections by women, feared precisely because of its “democratic” approach. Cellulite , In fact, Can appear even in thin and young people , With no exclusion, peeping after puberty and getting worse as the years progressed.

A phenomenon that is mainly localized on the buttocks and thighs and that tends to present with the typical "orange peel" appearance. With time, then, it can also come to form deeper irregularities, causing real "holes" on the skin, painful to the touch. A nightmare, especially in view of the summer.

Localized adiposity or cellulite? A complete identikit in three steps!

Now that we have defined localized adiposity and cellulite, we learn to recognize them, always paying attention to three factors: Appearance, localization And Compression ..

In the case of Fat accumulations It is good to remember that cells, even if full of lipids, are vital and reactive to stimuli.
Here is in detail What localized adiposity looks like ..

  • Appearance: the skin turns out to be smooth and toned with a normal temperature. There is neither an increase in heat, nor a cooling of the part.
  • Localization: it is generally placed in the area of the hips, belly, knees, but also in the thighs, on the back and on the arms. A widespread distribution that affects the whole body.
  • Compression: to the touch, by compressing the part, the skin does not have the classic orange peel and there is no sensation of pain.
  • In the case of cellulite, on the other hand, there is talk of a real inflammatory state of the cells which involves a reduction of oxygen in the tissues and the consequent accumulation of water and waste. Thus was born the water retention which, over time, generates inflamed bearings and stiffens the subcutaneous areas.

Here's how you recognize yourself.

  • Appearance: the inflamed tissue presents with a dull complexion, the skin is colder than normal and loses elasticity. The evident capillaries increase and the classic “orange peel” appears.
  • Localization: The typical areas where cellulite is formed are the thighs, buttocks and the inside of the knee. The points most feared by women and also the most exposed during the summer!
  • Compression: Compressing the part affected by cellulite results in pain, which can vary in intensity depending on the stage of inflammation. Furthermore, by rolling the skin between the fingers, you will notice the presence of nodules of different sizes.

Controlled nutrition and good habits: localized adiposity and cellulite are numbered

Well-being always starts from within: at the base of a healthy body, free from fat, water retention and consequent cellulite, a correct and balanced diet cannot be missing.
Fruits and vegetables are the best companions to declare war on imperfections , Because rich in mineral salts and vitamins. In view of the summer, bring diuretic foods to the table, such as asparagus and cucumbers, indicated to eliminate toxins from the body. Furthermore, rely on bean sprouts against localized adiposity: rich in vitamins and low in calories, they help the proper functioning of the liver and promote blood circulation. To lighten the tissue, then, Say goodbye to excess salt and sugar : The first increases water retention-and aggravates cellulite-the second overloads the liver which immediately turns it into fat. But not only! Water, preferably alkaline, is the number one ally Of our body to counteract water retention, promote drainage and eliminate slag from the body.
The table has been cleared, Take care of the lifestyle : Banned bad habits like the Smoke -Nicotine damages cells and produces free radicals- Don't overdo it with super spirits -Alcohol strains the liver and compromises microcirculation-and finally, You keep the stress away ..
