cellulite

Postby MerryA » Mon Mar 26, 2007 9:16 am

To have a body wihout any problem is the aim for every one but how can we have that if we have cellulite. I think it is a great problem that makes our body ugly. most of areas that are affected by cellulite can be found in thighs and sometimes in arms. If any one here had this problem and could overcome it successfully please tell us about her story with cellulite.

I have dark spots at the back of my knees due to the sweating caused by humidity in Vietnam, and I still wear skirts, shorts, etc. above my knees whenever I feel like it. I don't see it as a problem. I can't be sensitive about those spots when there are people who are blind, mute, crippled, etc.

It can be reduced, but I don't think you can make it disappear :roll: I read somewhere that we all have it (at least most of us) and that it's impossible to get totally rid of it! :evil:

As I suppose you can't have no cellulite at all if you a mature woman - it is an issue of our hormones

as a cure to reduce it - a very good one - is sauna, I was told many times that it is efficient, but you should keep in mind - it is only for those who don't have problems with heart, and the therapy should be rare - 2 a week maximum, moreover it's a brilliant relaxation :wink:

I think that is common in girls! I don't know very much about the cure or how to avoid them or cute down that situation. In my case, I have a few on my thighs too and it makes me angry because I'm too white and it doesn't look good :cry: :cry:

My thighs are pale also. I'm waiting for the summer to tan them. However, I might do it at a quiet nude beach. By the way, do you have a lot of white stripes on your thighs? I have a lot of those there for some reasons, especially the numbed area on my right thigh.

I just have a few but they look terrible and it bothers me :cry: .

I also think about taking a tan, maybe this April 14th that some students from California are coming and we're going to show them some Venezuelan beaches. I will take advantage of it and take the tan :wink: ; honestly I don't know why they have to appear, why we have to have them. What I know is that I've gotten them for a long time :?

It seems like we have those white stripes after puberty. I and my cousins didn't have them when we were little. However, we started to get them after puberty. That's what I remember. They don't seem to go away even we do running. One of my cousins runs like an hour or two everyday, and she still has them.

Yes! Unfortunately, they don't disappear! :cry:

I always go to the gym, I eat in a healthly way, etc.. and they stay there; I think they look worse :? but I have to live with it!!! I have no choice.

Ohhh girls!terrible all what you say. I´m 48, I´m fat, I´m on diet, do excersice, and almost do the same things of you and I don´t have any stripe in hips, thighs, etc.
Well I can´t say I don´t have any stripe, I have four in the low part of the arm, just next to the armpit. My sister used to say that it is because I get weight and suddenly I reduce, but this is uncredible, because I know girls as you that were all the time thin and suddenly they get those marks.
Here at México indian doctors said that the stress provoque the stripes, and they make a tratament based in wrappers with herbs, but I don´t have money to go to the mountains and be there some weeks.
:cry:

cellulite

Postby roses » Fri May 18, 2007 2:23 pm

Cellulite is caused by water retention that occurs in every menstrual period. Hence, it cannot be got rid of. I suppose that the sauna might work to some extent by reducing fluid levels. But creams, lotions etc can only have at best a cosmetic benefit.

Of course, I have never had cellulite and never will. So, for people of my chromosomal composition, can someone suggest a cure for accidentally bashing yourself in the testicles? :)
