Reduce both cellulite and liquid retention properly
Taking care of yourself and paying particular attention to triggers for liquid retention in your body should help you avoid or at least reduce some cellulite problems.
Indeed, liquid retention is one of the main physiological causes which contributes to creating this unsightly subcutaneous skin condition.
Even if the typical cellulite dimples are not apparent, water retention can cause other physiological effects able to create puckered tissue, better known as the orange-peel effect which is so detested by women, on one or more areas of your body.
When you consider that water is vital for your bodily function, and that excess liquids are expulsed as natural waste, it may seem strange that exactly that substance is one of the causes of cellulite.
Yet it’s true.
Let’s discover why together.
Physiological causes of liquid retention
There are many reasons for which liquid accumulates in various parts of the body.
For example, bad blood circulation or insufficient lymphatic drainage can cause muscle rigidity and the retention of liquids.
Here are some of the causes of liquid retention:
- weakening of the blood and lymphatic vessel walls
- blockage of the blood or lymphatic vessels in the upper body
- higher blood viscosity than normal
- cardiac or renal problems
- hereditary factors
- hormonal problems
- an accumulation of water between the cells and tissue, causing inflammation or infection
Triggers for these weak points in your body can vary widely.
For example a bad diet, a poor quality lifestyle, not enough exercise, the accumulation of toxins, bad body posture, incorrect use of medicines or even insomnia.
Even pregnancy can contribute to increased water retention in a great number of women.
