What causes cellulite? It’s a cruel and unusual punishment but almost  90% of women have of some form of cellulite. There are various factors that cause it including genetics, hormones, dehydration, lack of exercise, drinking caffeine, smoking, and poor or crash diets. There are three stages of cellulite, which can be determined by performing a simple pinch test on yourself then treating accordingly.

Are there ways to prevent it? While avoiding contributing to factors that you are in control of that cause cellulite is a good way of prevention, there’s also a simple exercise you can do to help reduce cellulite as well. By massaging prone areas with your hands in a circular motion towards your heart, you can increase circulation and break down pockets of fluid retention.  Depending on your stage of cellulite, you can see results in two to four weeks with just a simple daily massage routine using products like my Beyond Bionic Body Balm!

For beginning stages, using products like my Exfoliband silicone loofah, with my Beyond Bionic Body Buff, you can gently exfoliate away those nasty beginner dimples. Intermediate stages can begin with an exfoliating regimen and be enhanced with products like my Beauty Stamp, which makes microscopic impressions in the skin to enhance the delivery of product which helps increase collagen and elastin production for a smoother, more youthful appearance.
