Cellulite Treatments

  • Share on Facebook

We all know cellulite is, it’s that unpleasant area on our body that keeps us from wearing shorts or taking off the towel at the beach.  If you are looking for a cellulite treatment than you already know the what it is, you just want to know how to get rid of it.

The most talked about cellulite treatment from average people to professionals was healthy living. This seems to be the fix all for everything. Who would have thought? What it boils down to is that you have to eat healthy, drink healthy and exercise. Don’t worry I will give you more details.

Exercise

 

When you exercise you will lose weight which will help get reduce cellulite. Also when you build muscles you can reduce the looks of cellulite by replacing the dimple fat area with firm muscles. Now you have to use common sense. If your area of cellulite is on your thighs then doing biceps curls isn’t going to help. Be sure to do exercises that will target the zone needing the improvement. The most common part of our body that will be come subject to cellulite is the thigh and buttocks. So to target the fat in these areas you could do some of the following exercises.

Squats-to do a squat you simply lower yourself into a sitting position as low as you can go without actually sitting. Lower yourself down into the position and hold that position for as long as you can, then stand back up. You can also pulse while you are in the lowered position to help intensify. This simply means to slightly raise and lower the position.

Lunges-start in a standing position and extend one leg out in from like you are taking a step and then lower yourself  (similar to squatting). Be sure not to extend your leg over your knee so you don’t injure yourself. Now stand back up and put the other leg in front and lower yourself again. Just like the squats you can hold the down position or pulse.

Leg lifts are down on the floor. Start off in a crawling position and then extend one leg straight behind you and also extend the opposite arm in front. Now repeat this with the other leg and arm.

Now there are many other exercises you can do, too many to list. I use the Turbo Jam videos and on one of the DVDs there is a Turbo sculpt workout. (in case you want to buy this here is the link (Turbo Jam Turbo Sculpt)This workout is great for targeting the thighs (inner and outer) and the buttocks. I’m sure there are lots of videos that can help you get a great workout in these areas and you probably already have one. If you don’t exercise already you will want to be careful starting out this type of workout. Although I could do lots of lunges when I started out, I found out quickly that I could hardly walk the next day. A newbies over eagerness to achieve (ha ha)

Drinking Water

 

There was a lot of talk about healthy eating and drinking a lot of water  for cellulite treatment. What it all seemed to boil down to was that the cellulite area is full of toxins and that you should get rid of any meals that included process foods, deep fried foods or fast foods (which is basically a combination of the first two). However, I didn’t not find any legitimate site that had any background information the toxin angle of cellulite, but what could it hurt to cut out those types of foods. It may not be the best cellulite treatment but I would be willing to try it. I know it’s not going to cost me a fortune and I know that there will be lots of beneficial effects even if it doesn’t get rid of cellulite.

Cellulite Creams

 

Next I found that cellulite creams were a popular choice for getting rid of the dimples. There are an overwhelming amount of products available. There are a lot of people that say they worked great in a little amount of time. Some said they worked great if you use them over a long period of time and some said they don’t work at all. The most talked about cellulite creams where by Revitol and Nivea.

Revitol Cellulite Solution is made by a company that offers a product made with natural ingredients. The company is a member of the Natural Products Association. They do offer a satisfaction guaranteed program and will refund your money if you aren’t happy with the results. On there website there was lots of people that praised the product as an effective cellulite treatment. But don’t all companies have that. I searched to find if any real person had results and found that there were bad and good comments. However most of the negative comments came from people who had never used the product. Those that had used the Revitol Cellulite cream found that it did have good results but you have to use it for a long period of time (4-5 months). Here are some of the reviews I found from real product users (amazon)

“Last pump solution they sold seemed too clumpy and didn’t smell that great.. although I believe it did work. This stuff is
much better quality and works best (unfortunately) along with exercise and a low fat diet. Got tips from Cellulite Creams [...] Finally!”

“I really haven’t seen any results on the cellulite yet but at least it keeps your skin tight! Will continue to use since I have two tubes. I am using as directed twice per day and more so after a shower where I think the skin is more open to absorb the cream.”

This product works as described. I lost an inch off my waist & it tightened my skin quite qell. It’s all gone now.

“One thing I didn’t like was that the pump did not work well. Maybe it should come in a jar you can open instead of a pump.”

Nivea is a familiar name because they sell products at Target, Walmart and Walgreens. They have two products, one is the Goodbye Cellulite Gel/Cream and the other is the Goodbye Cellulite Fast Acting Serum. There wasn’t a lot of information on their site as to the ingredients but they do say the products contain 2 natural ingredients. Bottom line, does it work. Here is what I found from actual customers (found at yahoo answers)

“I have noticed a big difference in the way my thighs look after using this gel. They look smooth and feel much firmer. The Cellulite has not gone away, but it looks much smoother than it did before using this product.”

 

“Nivea Goodbye Cellulite works wonders!!! It is definatly worth the money!! I watched the 30 day challege of women of all sizes on the Tyra Show and it was encredible…so I went and got it and good bye cellulite!!! It doesnt work in just a week though..you will notice a difference but after a few weeks it looks amazing!!!”

At Amazon.com I found that out of 9 reviews 4 gave it a 5-star and 2 gave it a 1-star and the other two were in the middle.

1- star customer: “Good thing this product was not OVERLY expensive, but I did invest quite a few bucks on it for the couple of months that I used it. I’m a young healthy 20 year who exercises regularly. HOwever, I’ve been damned with bad cellulite on my inner thighs that has prevented me from EVER wearing shorts or anything that shows off too much of my thighs. I saw this product online, and decided to try it because of some convincing reviews. I bought the patches, gel and the pills. I did all three for no less than 3 months. It did nothing for me. I will continue to exercise, and maybe try another product in the future. BUT THIS DID ABSOLUTELY NOTHING FOR ME.”

5-star customer: “As a nurse and a skeptic, I was sure that this was going to be a lesson learned to not try things that seemed to easy, HOWEVER, this product does work. Give it a couple of weeks, but you will see a difference!”

(I love Amazon.com. Before I buy anything I always check out their reviews. Even if I’m going to buy it in town.)

From what I read on how the creams work and the reviews from the people who use them, the creams don’t eliminate cellulite but help to fade the appearance. The products repair tissue and tighten the skin giving it a more firm look. Some say that this helps but that you have to keep using the product or the look of the cellulite comes back.

Massage Treatment for Cellulite

The last treatment for cellulite that I found was massage. There were those who felt that the use of the cellulite cream was working because of the affected area getting a massage twice a day. But that apparently not the only way to massage the area, there are products for this as well. There are skin brushes and a machine called the Verseo Roller cell massage system. But the roller got mostly bad reviews and very few people on the web claim to use it at all.

 

Best Cellulite Treatment

So, from all the information I gathered, the way to get the best results is to exercise, targeting the affected areas. Also use the creams to get an improved appearance (not actually cellulite removal) by repairing the tissue and firming of the skin.
