Find out how to reduce orange peel with targeted solutions
Cellulite has a marked preference for some parts of the body: thighs and buttocks are the areas where it is most common, but even the arms are often not spared.
Why does cellulite also come on the arms?
Cellulite on the arms has no different causes from that affecting the legs: the underlying mechanisms are always the same, such as inadequate microcirculation, stagnation of liquids, fat cells trapped in rigid collagen fibers that form nodules that are not very well supplied and slowly bigger and more visible.
However, some factors specifically contribute to the appearance of cellulite, such as:
– unfavorable genetics, which can favor the accumulation of fat in the upper part of the body rather than in the lower one: some women, those with a so-called android constitution, put fat especially on the bust and arms and this can favor the mechanisms that lead to cellulite;
– age, because after the age of 40 the hormonal structure gradually changes and approaching menopause, but especially afterwards, it becomes more likely that the upper part of the body will also accumulate fat and orange peel;
– the lack of training of the arms: we often only think about how to slim and tone the legs, but neglecting the muscles of the arms means letting them accumulate fat and, later, cellulite.
