Cellulite is a concern for many of us as our body changes. While cellulite doesn’t affect overall physical health and doesn’t cause pain,  its appearance can cause feelings of insecurity, especially as we age. It’s helpful to know what causes cellulite and what we can do to treat it. 

Learning about cellulite

Cellulite is a common skin condition that appears as lumpy, dimpled flesh on the hips, thighs, buttocks, and abdomen. It’s also more prevalent in women than it is in men. In fact, according to the Mayo Clinic, cellulite is prevalent in 80 – 90% of women and only 10% of men. 

Between genetics, gender, and age, the amount of cellulite that appears on our bodies differs. As we age, our skin loses elasticity and can make the appearance of cellulite more evident. Gaining weight can also make cellulite more noticeable. But it’s common for people of all ages and weights to see the appearance of cellulite. 

How to treat it

Cellulite forms when the fat cells beneath our skin push up against our connective tissues, causing our skin to dimple and pucker. Drinking water and prioritizing a diet high in fruits and vegetables can help reduce this effect by keeping skin moisturized. Exercising can help minimize cellulite as well. 

Aside from personal daily routines, we can use the right products to smooth and tighten our skin using safe ingredients. 

Skin care with unlimited potential 

Body brushes are helpful in minimizing the appearance of cellulite. Daily exfoliating with a body brushing can help jumpstart lymphatic drainage and help eliminate toxins. Following a dry brush in the shower, slather on a hydrating gel like RENU28® Revitalizing Redox Gel to help lock in moisture.  

RENU28 gel encourages thriving skin 

Our skin renews itself naturally over time. It’s a process of rejuvenation that our cells are already programmed to do. As we age, that process can slow down. RENU28® is a skin-priming, age-fighting, cellular-rejuvenating gel that generates 28 days of surface skin cell turnover. This delivers tighter, more nourished skin. 

When used daily, RENU28 gel helps improve the appearance of skin smoothness and reduces cellulite and wrinkles. It also supports skin cell renewal for visibly younger-looking skin. 

RENU28 gel is designed to work at the surface skin cell level. By using redox signaling molecules, which are natural to our bodies, it promotes fresh and youthful-looking skin while calming from minor irritants and easing muscle discomfort. This multipurpose gel transforms skin, empowering your potential to look and feel our best when used daily.
