This is an excellent question that many women ask. Unfortunately, most of them receive the wrong answers. Let’s examine if a detox cleanse is really necessary for you to banish that awful cellulite from your body.
First, we need to look at what detox cleanses claim to do for you. There are several detox cleansing products on the market that make bold claims that they will flush out the toxins in your body.
Some of these products even claim to have ‘liver flushing’ capabilities. The general idea is that the body is full of toxins and other harmful substances and these cleanses will help remove them.
Before going any further, we need to take a look at what cellulite is. The detox cleanse products will have you believing that cellulite clumps are actually pockets of toxins in the body.
They will say that these pockets of fat are hardened fat that cannot be removed through normal methods. So, you’ll need to resort to cleanses to get to the bottom of the problem.
The only problem here is all the lies and misleading information surrounding cellulite.
Cellulite is fat. Nothing more, nothing less. It is not pockets of toxins or trapped particles beneath the skin that can’t be removed.
It is just normal fat and the same rules apply when dealing with cellulite as you would normal body fat.
You may be wondering why cellulite looks so different if it is just normal fat. Shouldn’t it be smooth and thick rather than clumpy, dimpled and ugly to look at?
To understand why cellulite looks this way will require having an understanding of your anatomy.
There are several bands of tissue that connect our skin to the muscles beneath it. These bands are known as septae. For women, these fibrous bands are connected in a vertical, perpendicular manner. For men, the bands are connected in a cross hatched manner. This is the main reason why men do not have cellulite.
The perpendicular bands create spaces that are used by the body to store fat. There is very limited space with the male’s cross hatched pattern.
Women definitely have it tougher in this area. Once the fat spaces are filled out and carry on getting bigger, the fat will push up against the skin. The clumpy appearance is due to the fact that the fibrous bands are between the fat stores.
So why does cellulite only appear on the thighs, butt and legs? The answer to this lies in the fact that for the majority of women, the skin is thinner there. Men have thicker skin than women.
In order to deal with cellulite, we need to deal with the body fat percentage of our bodies. The more fat you have on your body, the more cellulite you will have. Heredity and luck may mean that some women have fewer tendencies to have cellulite than others. Nevertheless, the principle holds true.
So, in order to lose this fat, you will need to adopt a healthy, clean diet and exercise program to eradicate the fat stores. No detox cleanse can achieve this.
There is no detox product on the market to remove cellulite that is effective. If you wish, you may go on a short three day detox plan and then follow up with a healthy diet and exercise program.
That would be the best way to go about getting rid of cellulite.
