9 Things That Are Definitely Causing Dimpled Skin
Well, You're not alone.
95% of women get cellulite at some point of time in their lives and it doesn't matter if you're skinny or not, cellulite affects us all and those lumpy skin dimples on your thighs, hips, arms etc. are NOT easy to get rid of.
So get down to the root of it, what's causing it in the first place?
Here are 9 things that you didn’t know were causing or worsening your cellulite problem, and what you can do to fix it ASAP!
1. Sitting at your desk all day
If you’re amongst us unlucky ones, and your job requires you to sit at a desk for 8-10 hours; you’re already fighting a losing battle against cellulite. Sitting all day makes you lose flexibility, reduces circulation and numbs your muscles, especially in the hips, butt & thigh region. And that’s precisely where cellulite is most visible.
BUT, it’s not all bad news.
A few minor changes to your work routine such as stretching every 30 minutes and taking the stairs or regular walks around your building can be ground-breaking, for both managing cellulite as well as your overall health.
2. Poor Nutrition
This one’s a complete no-brainer! Indulging in carb-laden sugary foods and not enough nutritive foods such as fruits, vegetables and even proteins can shrink your muscle mass and increase fat deposits, a major contributor to cellulite! So sticking to healthier food options is your first step to getting rid of that cellulite for good.
3. Lack Of Muscle
One of the main and easily tackle-able causes of cellulite is excessive fat deposits under your skin and too less muscle mass. Great news, all you have to do is hit the gym, indulge in some cardio to reduce the fat deposits and take up strength training, for a firmer and more toned body, significantly reducing the cellulite in your body.
4. Too Much Salt Intake
Ever felt that terrible bloated feeling after eating fast food or for that matter, any food with high salt content. Well, it boils down to this. Too much salt causes water retention in your body, which also is a major contributor to cellulite.
Which leads us to our next point...
5. Not Eating 'REAL' Food
It’s simple science. What you put into your body is what keeps your body healthy and fit. Nourish it with nutritious food and you lower the onset of problems like cellulite.
So cut back on those loaded cheese fries, tacos , processed food, packaged ramen and you better your chances of never seeing that pesky cellulite again.

More than 60% of your body is made up of water. And sure, you’ve heard the 2L of water a day mantra, but did you know how much of an impact it has on cellulite? Not drinking enough water can cause toxic buildup in the fat cells that contributes to the 'cottage cheese' texture of cellulite. Also, dehydration causes thinner, weaker skin—and when skin is weakened, it has a much greater tendency to show cellulite. So, drinking plenty of water can aid your body in metabolizing fat, ridding itself of toxins, and hiding cellulite via thicker skin.
7. Genetics & Hormones
Sucks, but it’s highly likely that you’re a victim of bad genetics. If your mum and grandmums have always had cellulite then the likelihood of you having it is pretty high.
Plus, female hormones are known to play a large role in the body’s production of fat and cellulite. So if you’ve tried every possible method to tackle cellulite to no avail, then it’s likely that you’re affected by hormonal issues or genetics.
8. Smoking & Alcohol
Excessive smoking and alcohol consumption aren’t causes of cellulite but can worsen the appearance of it as they constrict flow of blood to your body and weaken the layers of your skin, thereby making your cellulite more prominent. Smoking and alcohol can also inhibit the production of collagen in your body which is absolutely necessary for skin & tissue repair.
9. Try Dry Brushing & Anti Cellulite Massages
Sometimes, you can do all the above mentioned methods and still not see desired results. Well, then it’s time to pull out the big guns.
Dry brushing your skin can improve circulation levels and improve the overall appearance of your skin. Include dry brushing into your self-care routine for more effective cellulite management.
But if you want something to give you more immediate results, then opt for professional Anti-cellulite Massages that are proven to be effective in reducing the appearance of cellulite.
Here’s a little tip: Stay away from pricey cellulite creams that promise to get rid of cellulite, they don’t work!
If you’re serious about getting rid of cellulite, then you’ve got to make a few lifestyle modifications that will not only better your cellulite problem but your overall health as well.
And if you’ve been doing all the above and you still don’t see any progress, then try going a level up and getting some professional treatments that will definitely reduce the appearance of cellulite without blowing a massive hole in your wallet!
