Cellulite

beauty is in the eye of the beholder

Lumps and bumps in the world of beauty are like a bad word to be banned from our hips and thighs, especially when it is near beach and bathing suite season. Cellulite appears due to the combination of the fat, muscle, and connective tissue distribution. Fat deposits deeper in the skin push on the connective tissue and cause the smooth mesh to become distorted. This actually can be considered normal, and the appearance simply varies on the person’s gender, females have higher pre-disposition due to higher concentrations of body fat. However, other factors also include genetics, skin thickness, fat distribution, and age.

Eight out of ten women “suffer” from this seemingly insignificant problem. Although, our society and culture have shaped our view points to make it as though cellulite is unsightly, contributing to the booming so-called “anti-aging” industry, or my preferential name “optimal aging”. If we were to go back to the hunter-gatherer times, perhaps cellulite would be consider prized for a person to have, as those fat stores could be a source of energy to be used as fuel for the body in a time of famine.

Famine is over for many, and in America it seems to be feast at all times. Thus, contributing to our epidemic increased body fat percentages. Targeting the reduction of fat stores could possibly decrease the bumps that drive us nuts. Ways to do this aside from the infamous slogan of “diet and exercise” include at home topical creams and devices that help the appearance. There are also professional treatments that are available at medical spas. Depending on the severity, the combination of both may be the most beneficial.

From the holistic perspective it is best to have a multi-faceted approach to any problem, as well as choosing ingredients that are non-toxic. Refer to the Environmental Working Group’s Skin Deep Cosmetics Database at www.cosmeticsdatabase.com/ and The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics at www.safecosmentics.org for more information on product safety.

Take a moment, look in the mirror, and compliment yourself out loud on one thing that you see that is beautiful about your body. Remember, “beauty is in the eye of the beholder”, a paraphrased quote from Plato. Think, see, and be your beautiful self!
