Cellulite Reducing Cream – Ingredients that Work

When shopping around for a cellulite reducing cream, it’s important to read the ingredients list. Some ingredients tend to work better than others do while some are natural and others are derived from chemicals. One of the main ingredients you can expect to find in the majority of anti-cellulite products is caffeine. Caffeine is an active ingredient that helps reduces cellulite by drawing in blood to the applied area. It tightens blood vessels, giving your skin a softer appearance, and has a diuretic property that draws water away from the fat cells, reducing the appearance of cellulite.

Vitamin A is another common ingredient because it can rejuvenate the body’s connective tissues just under the skin. When these connective tissues end up being depleted, cellulite can begin to build up. Aminophylline is widely used because it reduces the orange peel look of the skin, helping to turn reduced fat cells into fatty acids. Retinol is often referred to as a type of vitamin A, and it also helps improve the look of your skin. When using retinol in a cellulite reducing cream, it’s important to stay away from the sun or use UV protection since it makes your skin more susceptible to burns.

You may find that your cellulite reducing cream contains something called AHA. This is alpha hydroxyl acid and is used to exfoliate the dead skin cells from the surface, giving you a more radiant look. Vitamin C is sometimes used in anti-cellulite products because it tightens and firms the skin as well as reduces pigmentation. You may also discover DMAE listed. This is an antioxidant that works to tighten muscles. Coenzyme A is another ingredient cited to reduce fat cells. Although any of these ingredients can be beneficial in combating cellulite, some women choose a more natural alternative.

A good natural or organic cellulite reducing cream will most likely contain caffeine or CoffeeBerry as well as a variety of antioxidants and herbal extracts. Acai berry extract is particularly popular because it is considered helpful in weight loss efforts due to its ability to metabolize fat cells. Creams containing this extract tend to be quite expensive, so you may need to find a cheaper alternative based on your budget. Other natural ingredients to look for include Shea butter, olive oil, jojoba oil, horsetail, green tea, seaweeds, and grapefruit oil. No single cream will contain all of these ingredients, so look for one that has the most beneficial active ingredients.
