We all know very well the dreaded orange peel, dimpled appearance of cellulite. Cellulite can affect 90% of women no matter their size or fitness level and is caused by the accumulation or enlargement of fat cells in between the connective tissue. The lumps and bumps you are used to seeing with cellulite are caused by the fat deposits below the connective tissue that are pushing upwards towards the top layer of skin. Unfortunately, cellulite mostly affects women and often presents on the buttocks, thighs and lower abdomen and occasionally on the breasts or upper arms. Men don’t usually experience cellulite as the structure of their skin is slightly different from women’s – unfair, right? Women’s connective tissue is structured vertically, which allows space for fat tissue to protrude upward, while men’s have a criss-cross structure. Factors that can impact the development of cellulite include hormones, such as estrogen, genetics, race, diet and lifestyle. One theory suggests as estrogen decreases as women age, blood flow to the connective tissues also does. This lower circulation can lead to less oxygen in the areas, which can affect collagen production and can contribute to the enlargement of fat cells.
DMK BODY SCULPTING
Nobody likes having cellulite, and it can often affect your confidence, body image and self-esteem – especially when heading to the beach. Take control of cellulite with DMK’s innovative Body Sculpting crème. This breakthrough treatment was specially formulated to smooth the appearance of cellulite by helping to firm, tighten and tone the skin through thermogenesis. Thermogenesis involves the production of heat through metabolic processes and takes place in the upper epidermis and lower subcutaneous tissue. It stimulates the blood and lymphatic circulation, which in turn increases the amount of oxygen delivered to the tissue by flushing out toxins. This can lead to a reduced appearance of cellulite. HOW
TO USE BODY SCULPTING
1. After a warm shower, apply a layer of crème onto the relevant area until only partially absorbed.
2. Wrap the area with plastic wrap and leave for 40 minutes then remove and massage the remainder of the Body Sculpting Crème in.
3. For best results, don’t shower for eight to 12 hours after application – so try using it at night before bed.
