Does Collagen Actually Work For Cellulite?

Everyone wants to get rid of cellulite, but few know how. Collagen can help in the fight against cellulite by strengthening connective tissues of the skin.
There are the tens-of-millions of dollars spent each year on topical creams that make outrageous claims about removing cellulite from the outside which is not where cellulite resides!

What is cellulite? All the things you need to know!

Cellulite is completely natural, and every body type has it. Some people associate cellulite with being overweight, which isn’t always the case. Cellulite refers to dimples or other textural changes in skin that develop when fat cells push through the second layer of skin, called the dermis. It often affects the buttocks, thighs, and abdomen.

Clinically speaking, cellulite is a fat globule under the skin that pushes the connective tissue out of shape, causing a dimpled, lumpy “cottage cheese” look.

As we age, our skin loses its elasticity. It stops stretching and starts rolling.

Research does suggest that certain bioactive collagen peptide supplements may have this effect in some people.

 

Cellulite damages collagen bands within the skin. Taking supplementary collagen may help repair these structures. How? Let see it below.

First of all, collagen works from within the body, where the cellulite is. It is not an invasive surgical procedure that goes hunting for cellulite. And it’s not a cream that you put on  your skin. Collagen is true “beauty from within!”

Secondly, collagen strengthens the connective tissue of the skin. And as you’ll recall, cellulite is primarily a problem of fat pushing the skin’s connective tissue out of shape. Plus, it helps to hydrate the skin from the inside. These two things add up to better skin elasticity, firmness, and plumpness (the good kind of plumpness). 

So you must include bioactive collagen peptides or oral supplements of collagen in your diet to reduce cellulite.
