Stop trying to hide that cellulite
Unsightly cellulite impacts as many as 90% of women at some point in their life. Hormonal changes, genetics, diet, and other lifestyle factors can all contribute to the appearance of cellulite. It’s clearly a common problem and many women are eager to address cellulite reduction without surgery or drastic lifestyle changes.
One of the more popular options to hide cellulite is anti-cellulite creams. Because these types of creams are cheap and easy to come by, many people turn to creams first, but with so many types out there, how do you know which one is best? Many of these creams contain caffeine which is used to dehydrate cells and make cellulite less obvious. To obtain and maintain results, you will have to apply these products every day. Other creams use retinol which can help thicken the skin to hide cellulite. Some women have reported seeing results, while others reported not seeing any change. Retinol products may take up to 6 months before seeing results. Additionally, creams that contain aminophylline to hide cellulite can lead to other health issues. Some users have reported becoming increasingly anxious, having a racing heart, etc. People using asthma inhalers are encouraged to avoid using any of these types of products as they can cause breathing problems as well. Be advised that all of these cream treatments are designed to hide cellulite temporarily and not reduce or eliminate it.
Another option for hiding cellulite is treatments that advertise the freezing of cellulite or using injections. Freezing can be effective at getting rid of small pockets of fat, but it cannot currently get rid of cellulite. Very few studies have shown any injection treatments to work and because each practitioner uses their own unique blend of ingredients including caffeine, hormones, enzymes, etc. there is no way to measure individual effectiveness.
