Cellulite is a pregnant woman’s nightmare. These are unsightly fatty tissues seen mostly in the belly and are hard to get rid of. This happens when the skin is being stretched as the baby grows and when the mother gains weight.
To prevent cellulite development, one must maintain a regular exercise, particularly cardio and strengthening exercises. This is a great motivation for pregnant women. Just think of how these cellulite's will look like after pregnancy and you’ll be good to go. If you can control your weight gain during pregnancy, then you have a better chance of reducing cellulite's.
Some people believe that rubbing apple cider vinegar in the cellulite gives great results. Another thing to consider is reducing the consumption of carbohydrates per day. Carbohydrates are one of the fastest to be converted to body fat. Your diet should include proteins, fruits and vegetables. These also help in improving the skin appearance.
If you’re one of those women who are very careful with your weight, then cellulite development might not be an issue for you.
Try target training exercises as well. Perform exercises that target your thighs, hips, buttocks, and stomach. These are the parts which are more prone to weight gain, and have a likely chance of developing cellulite's.
Here are some of the suggested exercises for each body part in case you’d like to try it: Hip Exercises include Step-Ups, Walking Half Lunges, Walking Knee Highs, and Side Lunges. For Thigh Exercises you can try Lunges, Bodyweight Squats, Side Lunges and Step – Ups. Butt Exercises include Lunges, Step-Ups, Bodyweight Squats and Walking Half Lunges. For Stomach Exercises, these are lying leg raises with an exercise ball, Walking Knee Highs, Hanging Leg Raise and Crunches on an Exercise Ball.
Some of these tips might be hard to do, but think about how these cellulite's will look like post pregnancy. Either control your weight gain or deal with the consequences later.
