How to choose the most effective creams and treatments against cellulite? And whether so frantic to fight it? Advises and thinks Olga Tretyakov.
I have cellulite, and I’m struggling with it ever since, believed that it is bad. I think it was in high school. Then just appeared glossy magazines. One of the most popular titles was “Down with an orange peel”. Down means down. At the age of 16 involved in the war, not understanding who is right and who is wrong.
But it is in 16. Years of struggling with cellulite at some point I ceased to understand why they do it. Before everything was clear-clear smooth skin on the priest and the lack of dimples on the thighs are included in the standard beauty along with high growth, healthy hair and large Breasts.
Not to say that now it’s all stopped being beautiful. Just the boundaries of beauty has expanded. Binding was less – well, according to my personal feelings. Anyway, I don’t suffer, if I have a new zit appeared gray hair or a dimple on the ass.
Gradual departure from this requirement turned into an expression of concern. I do not RUB the cream because otherwise I would feel ugly and no I won’t like (after all the years of therapy felt). For me, this part of the program “love yourself”, which includes healthy food, reasonable physical activity, healthy sleep, and prevention of disease. And if the rest of the items turns out not all and not always, with the cream-you absolutely cannot screw up. Just need to open the jar and smeared. With this I have no problems.
To be honest, I don’t know if there’s a missing cellulite from what I all the time something was done to him, and all this time I was fighting with a windmill?
To answer this question I can not afford. As to the question about how much percent consists of memories of our own fantasies and ideas about the past. But since we already know that in my terminology, “cream” = “care” every day I open the jar and take care of yourself. That’s why I became much less appreciate means of a series of “pomocy themselves for the sake of beauty.” Why make wraps with red pepper, if you can do? Moreover, there is evidence that the more painful, the more effective.
What is your evidence?
From the lyrics to the facts. All our cellulite – exercise-in General, totally meaningless. According to the information portal huffpost.com there is no cream that is able to deliver us from what is commonly called “orange peel”.
Retinol tightens the skin, and it allows you to make the holes less noticeable. Caffeine, ginger, and extracts of black and green tea help improve blood circulation. It is believed that they can also break down accumulations of fat cells (adipocytes), which appear irregularities. But this is not proven.
But it is proved that with age the amount of cellulite in women is increasing because the body produces less estrogen and, therefore, collagen and impairs blood circulation.
There is also evidence that it helps in cellulite massage: it affects the overgrown connective tissue, which make the skin uneven. Self-massage for that too.
But if you think before to be smeared with cream, I have been studying the results of medical studies, it you are nothing. The quantity (and quality) of cellulite individually determined by age, hormones, genetics and gender – in women, this trouble happens more often than men (Yes, guys, she also happens).
However, here are 5 things I continue to do. Because you seem to see a result.
1. Drink a lot of water
On your place I would, too, then winced. Yes, it seems that in the following paragraphs I will describe the benefits of healthy sleep and life without stress. I promise not to do it. But water is important. According to the information portal Health.com if you drink enough and eat a lot of cucumbers, tomatoes, bell peppers and other vegetables consisting of water 90% or more of the cellulite is reduced. The question is: enough water is how much? Will not put links to mad calculators on the Internet that suggest me to drink at least 4 liters is still more than 2 litres I have to drink comes out. And I still think tea.
2. Strength training
If you are a Jock, cheers to you. And if you prefer running you alas! Because running does not get rid of cellulite. My favorite box too. Dancing – nope. But let me add to your favorite cardio at least 15-20 minutes of strength training every other day as the skin becomes more smooth. To hell with them, with training, well, I hate them. Therefore, dumbbells are my little cute friends. Of course, it all depends on the amount of cellulite, but I have enough push-UPS, squats and swings with these same weights. And, by the way, studies confirm that the use of force in this respect rule.
3. Weight loss
We all of course know that thin people also have cellulite. And that even liposuction is not able to deliver. But I don’t know about you, but I got it for much less in summer than in winter. In the cold I’m moving less and less, satisfying eat and drink less water, because the cold and don’t want to. So even with the training over the winter almost always gain a couple pounds. the Good news is that when they go out and cellulite. The bad – if they return, it is also not alone.
4. Massage apparatus
I did not dare to anti-cellulite massage – scared of the opinion of friends. Said it was not just painful, but very painful. But, of course, if you have the experience painless, but super effective anti-cellulite massage – share? I’ll go and tell about the impressions.
My experience – massage apparatus: LPG and R-Sleek (islik).
First I did a long time ago, the second this winter in the Studio Prograce.
LPG is a vacuum-roller massage, the second is due to the method of thermocompression. Simply put, LPG manipula device sucks the fat folds and massaging her, and in the case of R-Sleek specialist rolls problem areas pretty heavy device with rows of spinning rollers. Which in turn causes natural heating of tissue and lymphatic drainage.
Those and other procedures happen over a white space suit (individual, issued for a course of treatments, and it can be washed). For those who don’t like to be touched by strangers (I don’t like), this kind of massage is ideal.
The big difference of the course of treatment, I do not see, but feels nicer R-Sleek. But this, of course, individually. Both sensitive, but not painful. To endure is quite possible, moreover, that the intensity is governed by and at the expense of the switching speeds on the machine, and due to the pressure. Bruises does not remain.
Procedure R-Sleek it is recommended to undergo a course of 8-10 sessions in 1-3 days. The effect is after the first: lymphodrenage and loss water you blow on 1-3 see Further work on leather quality: the more often you do, the smoother it becomes. After 8 treatments of R-Sleek I was so pleased with the results that never even made it to the final two. Volumes decreased by 1.5 cm on the hands, 2cm to waist and 3 cm at the hips. But the important thing is that cellulite on the buttocks and rear thighs became completely invisible. So I think to finish the course, when the effect will fade.
Prices: from 2310 RUB per session (with the purchase of subscription) in the Studio Prograce.
5. The anti cellulite creams
If you jump ahead to a few paragraphs ago, you can read how I write: the cellulite creams are useless. The best scientific minds have done research, are able to grieve the global cosmetic industry. Why should you believe me instead of them? Because by itself, the cream can speed up your metabolism, make you drink water and exercise. He can’t change your genes, which may have an in-built tendency to cellulite.
But if twice a day after showering to do intense self-massage of problem areas with anti-cellulite cream at least five minutes, then after a month you will be surprised the results. I’m talking about cases similar to mine: I have never had hips in a terrible is from the “get rid of the orange peel in just three sessions”. But small bumps will disappear – you’ll see.
Here are my favorite creams. They do not make you any character of fairy tales “Morozko” (remember this — “if you warm, maiden?”), no chicken in the oven. That is, they are literally neither hot nor cold. But pleasant texture, leaves no oily sheen, moisturize and smell great. And, most importantly, work.

The most important thing I realized in pursuit of the best means against cellulite, that is a fight with windmills. Marketers (I suspect that it was they) who have turned a non-existent problem in a multimillion dollar profitable business of course, big well done. But demand for anti-cellulite programs forcing manufacturers to make tweaks to call good massage means “wheat” or to attract hardware procedure, ideal for lymphatic drainage and reduce muscle pain after exercise, a promise to eliminate the “orange peel”.
But even knowing that the main effect of anti-cellulite creams — massage, which is accompanied by its application, I will not cease to use them. After all, apart from the dimples and irregularities, there is still the density, smoothness and skin tone, which impact is possible. And the feeling of self-care for me is priceless.
And what means against cellulite help you?
