Since we know cellulite is more common in women, what is the relationship between cellulite and pregnancy?

Many women develop cellulite or worsening cellulite during pregnancy because of the physical changes that happen to their bodies. The amount of cellulite you have, as well as its visibility, is determined by a variety of factors, including:

  • Weight gain and increased body fat
  • Natural aging and elasticity of the skin
  • Genetics
  • Bodily fluids
  • Hormonal changes
  • Lack of exercise
  • Poor diet

Here are a few ways you can naturally reduce cellulite during pregnancy!

Exercise Regularly

Many moms fear exercise during pregnancy, but research shows that it is one of the best things you can do for yourself and your baby. Walking or light aerobics can tone muscle tissues and reduce cellulite formation. Additionally, sweating while exercising also flushes out toxins from the body and cleanses the skin.

Stay Hydrated

Increasing your water intake helps reduce cellulite's appearance by preventing fluid retentionStaying hydrated also helps control excess calorie consumption and prevent early contractions.

Eat a Balanced Diet

Including foods high in protein, low in sodium, and processed sugars helps prevent water retention and excess weight gain, which contribute to cellulite. Eating healthy foods and making simple changes, such as swapping fried foods for lean meats, can make a huge difference in your overall health and skin appearance. It’s best to avoid extreme diets which can eliminate essential nutrients that are important for both you and your baby during pregnancy.

Try Collagen Supplements

Collagen protein can help improve your skin's elasticity and strengthen your connective tissue. A collagen supplement can help prevent stretch marks during pregnancy and postpartum and improve cellulite appearance and joint health.
