At last… Cellulite and Stretch Marks Relief
Cellulite (also known as orange peel syndrome) is considered a normal skin condition affecting 80-90% of all adult women. Cellulite is often found in the pelvic regions and is characterized by herniation of fat underneath the skin with connective tissue resulting in skin dimpling and modularity. While cellulite is a form of fat, it has nothing to do with diet, but is influenced by hormones, genetic factors and stress.
The female hormone estrogen plays a major role in the development of cellulite. Other hormones that are believed to play a role in the development of cellulite are insulin, catecholamine hormones adrenaline and noradrenaline, thyroid hormone and prolactin. Being overly stressed can result in an increase in the levels of catecholamines.
Stretch Marks are a form of scarring of the skin with a reddish-purple hue. Stretch marks are formed when glucocorticoid hormones prevent fibroblasts from forming collagen and elastin fibers, which are necessary to support rapidly growing skin. As the skin is stretched too fast, dermal and epidermal tearing result. The tearing of the skin will diminish over time, but may not disappear completely. Women who are most at risk for developing stretch marks are younger women who are pregnant and women with a high body mass index.

L-Carnitine has an ability to play a major role in fat breakdown and has beneficial effects on the skin itself. A recent study looked at how L-Carnitine can prevent and alleviate skin conditions such as varicella scarring, sunburn peeling and wrinkle formation.
