Before we can talk about a Global Firming Concept, let's review some information about cellulite! Cellulite is a condition that presents as the "orange-peel effect" or "cottage cheese effect". Simply put the: dimpled, lumpy look of the skin. It does not discriminate and targets between 80-90 percent of women, regardless of age or race. Unfortunately for us women, we are more prone to cellulite than our male counterparts.
THE ADIPOCYTES ARE RESPONSIBLE OF CELLULITE GENESIS
Blame it on the adipocytes! These fat cells, located under the skin, stock up amounts of fatty acids (lipids) and water as available energy for the human body. Larger than a traditional human cell, an adipocyte is able to increase 50 times its size. When the adipocytes can’t grow any more, it develops a new storage cell called the PRE-ADIPOCYTE. This allows it to stock up even more fatty acids in the adipose tissue. This causes a change of the cell surface aspect of the skin: the « orange peel » aspect.
THE DIFFERENT KINDS OF CELLULITE
There are 3 main kinds of cellulite :
- The fatty cellulite: due to a lack of physical activity combined to with an unhealthy diet. This kind of cellulite is flabby when you touch but painless when pinching. Located on the hips and bottom.
- The fibrous cellulite: related to the development of reticulis fibers, it remains extremely sensitive and very hard. This kind of cellulite is the most difficult to remove. It is located on the thighs and can develop a purplish-blue aspect.
- The aqueous cellulite: due to water retention in the tissues, it is mainly located on the thighs, calves and ankles and is related to heavy legs sensation.

To top it all off, hydrolipidic defense barrier becomes more permeable at night which provides opportunity for actives to penetrate even deeper.
