Although I am not overweight, I have noticed that the back of my thighs are starting to have a slight resemblance of cellulite. What can I do about this, to prevent it from forming fully?
Health expert Dr Graham Duncombe from Skin & Body Renewal responds:
“It is important to remember that cellulite is not simply connected to weight gain. It is influenced by diet, circulation, poor lymphatic drainage, hormones and lifestyle. So there isn’t simply one quick-fix when it comes to this condition. All of those factors have to be taken into account. So the ones that are completely in your control are your diet, exercise, sufficient water intake and avoiding things that cause toxicity in the body (such as smoking, for example). Where we would be able to help you professionally is with your hormonal profile and with the appearance of the cellulite that is already there, by doing treatments that will improve your circulation, lymphatic drainage and skin condition. Treatments such as Velashape, Exilis, Titania and Carboxy Therapy can be considered.”
