Cellulite in children is becoming more and more prevalent in industrialized countries, and not many are sure why. As a fitness professional, I strongly believe that the problem is not something that is found in our food, but rather the amount of food that is consumed. If you’re still scratching your head, the problem is, in my opinion childhood obesity is becoming a pandemic that needs to be addressed. So is it normal for children to have cellulite? The answer now, compared to even a decade ago, is an unfortunate yes.
As mentioned, cottage cheese skin, a common way of referring to cellulite, is becoming very common due to obesity rates in industrialized countries. However, cottage cheese skin is not simply oily, and there is controversy in the medical field that cellulite is a sign of major health problems. Cellulite is basically the result of subcutaneous fat along with water retention herniating into the skin.
If you have noticed that young women have a greater or more noticeable amount of cellulite, you are correct. Women, children, or adult women have been shown to have honeycomb-shaped connective tissue. This is why you will notice that children with cellulite are more likely to be female. Men or boys have more horizontally structured connective tissue, making them less likely to have a noticeable cellulite problem.
Before following the conventional ways to get rid of cellulite, you may have noticed that not all people with a cellulite problem are overweight. Besides being related to subcutaneous fat, cellulite problems are also caused by water retention, as mentioned above, along with restricted blood flow that actually helps herniate connective tissue.
Let’s cover some of the ways to get rid of cellulite in your child. When looking for ways, the most common is that laser treatment is recommended. Personally, a laser is the last thing I would like to get near my son. Other than that, treatments like Cellulaze can cost you between $ 4,500 and $ 7,000 on the low end.
Seeing laser treatment is not necessarily the way we want our kids to get rid of cellulite, what else is out there? One thing that you can do that is much less expensive and not invasive at all is to use a body brush. Not only is body brushing less expensive than Cellulaze and related treatments, it is much less invasive and can be done by your child. Additionally, body brushing can also stimulate blood flow and lymphatic system while removing dead skin.
As I mentioned earlier, cellulite is often considered an obesity-related problem. Focusing on that, we can all say that the current generation of children does not have the healthiest diet. A thought process that intervenes in this is the toxins or unnatural elements that enter the body of our children. This way of thinking strongly advocates an organic or even paleo diet.
What we have to take out of this and realize is that although our societies are advancing, our personal health is declining. As a fitness professional, I personally say that our obesity epidemic is spiraling out of control. Implement the steps above and below. It should help you see a dramatic difference in cellulite reduction.
