Can swimming get rid of cellulite?

If you’re one of the many people who fear cellulite, then it’s about time you hit the pool. Yes! You read that right! According to experts, swimming is one of the secrets to getting rid of those pesky lumps and bumps.

What is Cellulite?

Before we dive into how swimming can help reduce cellulite, let’s first understand what it is. Cellulite refers to subcutaneous (below-the-skin) fat that causes a dimpled or lumpy appearance on various parts of the body such as thighs, hips, buttocks and even arms.

You see ladies and gentlemen; our skin has three layers- Epidermis(the top layer), Dermis(middle layer), Subcutaneous layer(bottom layer). It’s when body fats are contained in these cells; they tend to push against connective tissue causing our skin’s surface look bumpy.

Now let’s talk about how exactly swimming can come to your rescue:

Swimming Helps Tone Your Body

Swimming involves numerous physical movements which tone different muscles in your body. Being a full-body workout, it engages multiple muscles at once with every stroke – helping increase muscle tone an giving Shrek  a run for his money!

However toning doesn’t necessarily mean losing weight there might still be some wiggly,jiggly,wobbly bits certain strokes could actually target!!! 🤯🙀

Breaststroke: The best-stroke-for-dem-legs?!

All swimmers out there know that kicking back & forth while crisscrossing legs like scissors may seem easier than running for Bruce Willis’ life but breaststroke swimsuits any age group with its therapeutic style & stance due to lesser strain compared to other exertions plus reducing stress levels.
It works like magic as it focuses mainly on leg(thighs)and butt muscles. So, you get that toned lower body with regular swimming.

It Improves Blood Circulation

Swimming is also an excellent aerobic exercise that gets your heart pumping – this leads to increased blood flow and better circulation throughout the body, which can help reduce inflammation and boost the production of collagen —-  a molecule essential as skin’s building block needed for connective tissues to maintain their elasticity!

Bonus point: More Blue in face = Less Cellulite? Well not literally but holding your breath underwater does work wonders even on those stubborn cellulite spots!!

Swimming Prevents Fluid Retention

Another bonus! 👀
Since our bodies are made up of over 60% water, fluid retention (edema) is a common problem affecting many people – particularly women. One symptom of edema is swollen feet and ankles or thighs. With routine swimming workout sessions, however,the pressure applied by water helps reducing swelling by draining liquids out thereby flushing excess fluids from our system.

Now let’s talk about some quick tips when hitting the pool:

Wear Proper Swim-Wear

It’s important to wear comfortable swimwear that fits well so you can move freely through the water without feeling restricted or uncomfortable.Don’t try squeezing into anything too small!!!

Keep Hydrated 😲👓💥🤯💩😴☕️

Even though you’re surrounded by water make sure to still remain hydrated!! Drink enough liquid during & after swimming as dehydration due excessive sweating could add-up more on dimply derierres (wink wink)

Opt for cocoGin:- Half CoconutWater + Half Gin = Milky Goodness!!! Yummerssss.. 💦💧

Showering before diving in—Just say YASSS Queen!

Shower before entering a pool; avoiding any moisture-ridden areas(swimsuits,damp towels,oily creams&such) rubbing against the pool’s edges could reduce spreading of bacteria whilst maintaining hygiene.

Get help from a Professional

Don’t be afraid to ask for swimming lessons or coaching, such as from your local swimming club! Different strokes work different muscles so a hand in getting that perfect posture does come handy!!!

In conclusion,adding swimming into your workout routine can do wonders – not just for cellulite but for your overall body health. So dive-in and make sure you get the most out of this incredible full-body workout!! It’s time to flaunt those gams like Angelina Jolie!!! (wink)
