It can be frustrating when you invest in a product, patiently and consistently use it as directed and see no results. I completely understand if you want to fight the air. Trust me, I get it. Been there, done that and got the t-shirt. Just like many women across the world, I was very aware of the cellulite on my thighs. I don’t even remember a time BC (Before Cellulite). I bet I was living a carefree life wearing teeny shorts.
I eventually learned about cellulite and the staggering amount of product dedicated to getting rid of it. Everything from “loofahs, special wash cloths, miracle ingredients in creams and lotions, herbal supplements, vitamins, minerals, bath liquids, rubberized pants, brushes, rollers, body wraps, and toning lotions to electrical muscle stimulation, vibrating machines, inflatable hip-high pressurized boots, hormone or enzyme injections, and massage have been claimed to be successful cellulite treatments.” Source: Paula’s Choice
However, there is little to no research proving the efficiency of such topical treatments in getting rid of cellulite. While we don’t know the exact causes of cellulite, there are leading theories about cellulite formation – and guess what, none of them are about weight gain. In fact, any amount of fat can show up as cellulite, and since we all need a certain amount of fat in our bodies to stay healthy, you’re likely to experience cellulite at some point in your life.
Since cellulite is body fat, I gathered that it can be reduced by processes that break down fat. A point that is backed by the Beauty Brains. I don’t think rubbing a cream or lotion on the skin can alter fat deposits and permanently get rid of cellulite. That seems far fetched, don’t you think? It’s best to just embrace the cellulite and move on to live a healthy well rounded life using the money saved from avoiding cellulite products!
