Cellulite Cream that Works – Buying Only the Best

Ask ten regular cellulite cream users which product has worked best for them and you’ll no doubt get ten different answers. This is because the cellulite cream that works for you may not work for someone else, and vice versa. Most cellulite creams generally have the same basic ingredients designed to draw water away from the fat cells under the skin and firm the outer layer of the epidermis. One of the main ingredients used in many anti-cellulite products is caffeine. Others include various herbal extracts and antioxidants as well as shea butter and oils to keep the skin moisturized.

Cellulite Cream that Works

When looking for a cellulite cream that works it’s important to have realistic expectations. Anti-cellulite products do work, but they are not miracle workers. Only invasive plastic surgery can completely remove cellulite, but serums and creams can reduce the appearance of cellulite, even if it doesn’t get rid of it completely. Because of this, don’t feel discouraged in thinking that you have to spend a lot of money on the most expensive cellulite treatment. Products on the higher end of the price scale do tend to work better, but an affordable cream with good ingredients can firm and tone skin nicely with regular use.

No matter which cream you choose, be sure to apply it properly and follow the directions. Generally, any cellulite cream that works will require two applications daily. For most women, this means applying it both in the morning and at night. How you apply it is also important. Use a firm circular massaging motion to rub the product into the skin. The massage helps break up the toxins and water retention in the fat cells, helping your body to flush these away. Contrary to what you may think, the skin actually absorbs products better when it’s moist, so try to apply the product right after a hot shower or following exercise.

Although cellulite has more to do with hormones and genetics than anything else, a cellulite cream that works can only do so much. Be sure to watch what you eat, and eat foods that help with water retention. Drink at least eight glasses of water per day to flush out toxins from the body and keep yourself hydrated. Avoid high fat foods, get enough fiber, and quit smoking. Exercise is also important, and regular strength training can help tone cellulite-prone skin, reducing the dimpling.
