Preventing Cellulite During Pregnancy

Many pregnant women worry about the development of cellulite, as necessary weight gain increases the likelihood that it will occur. While there are cosmetic ways to eliminate or reduce cellulite later, women can also take steps to prevent it.

Tips for Preventing Cellulite

These tips can greatly benefit women that are pregnant. However, they can help anyone prevent the development of cellulite as well.
  1. Cut out the junk food – fried, fatty foods and high-fat dairy products contribute to cellulite. Try and resist the pregnancy cravings for these foods.
  2. Stick to whole  grains – it is important to increase the fiber in your diet when you are pregnant. Instead of choosing white breads, cereals and rice, go for whole grain items.
  3. Remain fit – fitness is important whether or not you are worried about cellulite. If you are concerned about what activities are safe for you to do throughout your entire pregnancy, speak with your doctor.
  4. Go for massages – increasing circulation in the legs and other parts of the body where cellulite occurs with massage can help. It will also help to prevent the onset of varicose veins.
