Cellulite and pregnancy

Could pregnancy induce more cellulite? Well, you'll surely gain some weight - that should not worry you; 80% of that newly gained weight you'll lose in the first few months after the birth. The good news is, you have no reason to think that you'll be more prone to cellulite during pregnancy than in any other period of your life.

However, pregnant or not, cellulite is something that is easier to prevent and cure.

While pregnant, many diverse methods of getting rid of cellulite can not work for you - you can not go on a diet, use any kind of "magical" pills (which I would not recommend anyway), go to arduous treatments, etc.

Here's the list of things you could do, easily at your home, for preventing and reducing cellulite while pregnant:

1. Walk. If there is no complication with your pregnancy, or not advised by your doctor otherwise, walking is a good way of preventing and reducing cellulite. It's recommended to walk for at least half an hour a day, but if you have enough time, even 2 or 3 hours a day would be great.
2. Massage. This specially goes for those areas already affected with cellulite.
3. Relax & enjoy. It's seriously considered that one causes of cellulite is stress. Pregnancy might be stressful for some, so try to enjoy in good sides of it. For relaxation you might use some steamy baths with salts, oils and essential oils like lavender, orange, grapefruit, rosewood, ... . Here you can check the list of home made cellulite remedies!
4. Eat lots of fruits and vegetables. They contain necessary vitamins and minerals, as well as dietary fibers. Some of the best fruits for preventing cellulite are grapes, banana and pineapple.
5. Drink lots of water, unsweetened tea, juiced fruit like orange, grapefruit, yogurt.

These might sound a bit simplistic, but the hard part is making it all a habit. Simply said, there is no miracle, sophisticated, complicated way of preventing and getting rid of cellulite, but simply doing your best to adopt these habits as much as possible.
