Did you know that unbalanced estrogen levels can lead to cellulite? Estrogen stimulates the activation of an enzyme called matrix metalloproteinase (MMP). MMP causes collagen to degenerate and weaken, which then causes fatty tissue to break through the connective tissue “mesh” that keeps fat in place. Plus, excess estrogen levels stimulate the replication of even more fat cells in cellulite-prone areas, and interfere with normal metabolic breakdown of fat.
To reduce cellulite, use any of the hormone-balancing solutions I discuss throughout my blog. You can also try dry brushing and my “latte lather,” both of which reduce the appearance of cellulite from the outside.
