Since the body is mainly made up of water, it makes sense that water plays a role in the formation of cellulite-especially water retention.
As we age, tissue becomes less capable of utilizing water properly. Our bodies are made of cells and connective tissue, and when there is damage to these tissues and the cell wall, the blood vessels become damaged and water cannot be held as well. As a result of weakened tissue, the skin is less firm, making cellulite more visible. Additionally, aged blood vessels, which impact fluid retention, can have an effect on circulation, too.
You can get rid of excess water, which usually gets stored in tissue, to alleviate part of the problem; but you really need to address circulation in order to tackle cellulite. The best way to do so is by building up depleted collagen and elastin by eating healthy foods. You may also need to take supplements and vitamins rich in glucosamine, amino acids, lecithin and antioxidants.
