cellulite when i bend my legs

‘Adipose cellulite is the firm cellulite, orange peel effect on loose skin,’ says Haus. ‘Oedematous cellulite is fluid retention, soft cellulite often on loose skin. And fibrotic cellulite is hard, compact cellulite with orange peel effect

According to Haus, 95 per cent of women have a type of cellulite somewhere on their body. ‘Even skinny people get cellulite,’ he says. ‘And cellulite is often hereditary, so it’s likely your family members will be suffering from the same problem.’

Cellulite forms in areas with the least circulation so it means that without activity, it’s very hard to budge,’ he says. ‘Everyday energising movements and skin warming exercises will have you saying goodbye to dimpled skin if you are consistent with it.’ Haus recommends running, swimming and a brisk walking. ‘These are the best form of exercises for increasing blood circulation and loosening the fat tissues from those hard to budge areas

Haus says when buying cellulite products, look for the following ingredients: ‘Centella asiatica is the key ingredient in cellulite creams,’ he says. ‘This restores the macromolecules that give the skin its elastic quality. Ginkgo Biloba is a powerful antioxidant that effectively oxidises fat cells that are present below the skin’s surface and helps to increase blood circulation by strengthening the veins, which helps to rid the body of cellulite. And methyl nicotinate promotes the decongestion of tissues, reducing the amount of retained liquid. It also stimulates the drainage of liquids and toxins
