Cellulite is a harmless skin condition that occurs due to fat deposits under the skin. It appears most commonly on the thighs, hips, abdomen and buttocks and causes the skin in that area to look bumpy, lumpy and dimpled. Around 90% of women will experience cellulite at some point in their lives and the unfortunate reality is that neither a change in diet nor exercise can solely solve this problem. While it is a perfectly normal phenomenon it can drive a lot of people up the wall and make women feel self-conscious about their appearance. If you can relate to this feeling then look no further as this post will go through tips from beauty pros.
Here are 5 ways to quickly get rid of cellulite.
1. Use Cellulite Creams
One of the more inexpensive ways to treat cellulite is to frequently use cellulite creams. There is an abundance of creams available and so it is worth taking the time to research the options before committing to buying one. Check out reviews and if a cream is consistently getting good feedback then you know that you are less likely to waste your money on an ineffective product. Cellulite creams use ingredients from plants and some use caffeine to help tighten your skin quickly. For the best effects, you need to massage the cream into your skin and not rush the process. This will need to be done daily and you are likely to see results as quickly as in two weeks – but that is only if you stick to the moisturising and massaging routine properly. Also, as a side note, it is worth putting a small amount of the cellulite cream on your skin first before slathering it on just to make sure you do not have an allergic reaction.
2. Quick And Easy-Laser Treatments
Another quick and easy way to remove cellulite is to use laser or radiofrequency methods that use heat, massage and suction to smooth out any bumps on your skin. Treatments provide instant results and can last for six months and potentially even longer. There are several institutions, such as Medspa that offer cellulite treatments that are non-invasive so that you do not have to worry about pain or long recovery periods. It is likely that you will need a couple of visits for the best results and is also one of the more expensive methods for tackling cellulite, but that expense shows in the effective results laser treatments achieve.
3. Use Exercise To Target Specific Areas
While exercise alone cannot completely eradicate your cellulite, it can help to reduce their appearance. This is because stronger muscles under dimpled areas make your skin look more even. Consider doing a mixture of cardiovascular based exercises, such as swimming, running or cycling and combine this with some strength training of the problematic areas. So this will typically include working out your abs, legs and buttocks.
4. Daily Massage
Another easy and inexpensive way to reduce the appearance of cellulite is to spend a few minutes each day massaging the cellulite heavy areas on your body. The best time to do this is either in the shower with body soap or after your shower with body lotion. Be firm with it and make sure you cover all areas as this will improve blood flow and reduce excess fluid, which makes lumpy skin less noticeable. This method will only really work if you stick with it, there is no point doing it every once in a while as you will not achieve the goals you want. After doing it for a while this will quickly become a regular part of your daily routine.
5. Experiment With Suction Cups
Another common way women reduce their cellulite is by using suction cups, also referred to as vacuum cups. These work by stimulating circulation in the body which helps to break down the fat deposits that cause dimpled and bumpy skin. Women are often put off by this method because they are worried that it will cause bruising on their skin, however, cellulite specific vacuum cups are designed to avoid bruising while still being strong enough to suction the skin. You simply place oil on the affected area and rub the vacuum cup in circular motions around the skin. These are available at a wide range of prices with some as cheap as £5 and some as expensive as £100. Use these regularly and consistently for the best results but equally do not expect them to perform miracles!
Don’t let your cellulite get you down. It is a perfectly normal phenomenon and one that affects most women. If you are keen to reduce your cellulite then any one or a combination of these 5 methods will help you to achieve this.
