Cellulite

Recommended Posts

Hi ladies.... let me clear this up, DO NOT DRINK IT! lol What you do is grab 1/2 a handful of coffee grinds and then pour some lotion of top of that and mix it... or you can also just mix it in a small bowl, just enough to rub it on the areas.. Scrub away for about 2 minutes then into the shower... Do just enough for a one time cause you want to make sure you keep it fresh with the grinds.thewave.gif

I think the coffee + hand lotion cream makes total sense. The main ingredient in the expensive creams in caffine. I'm going to try this as well. Thanks so much for the idea!

Ladies, I saw Oprah today & thought of this thread. Today Dr.Oz was on & he was talking about beauty. Anyway, they got to the topic of cellulite. He explained what it is & how you get it. I DO NOT want to be a killjoy but figured it was nice to be informed and based on that I decided to post this. Now if you're using something or doing something & you feel that its working then by all means, continue to do what you do. But medically, this is what he said:

He said that THERE IS NOTHING THAT YOU CAN DO FOR IT. YOU CAN NOT GET RID OF IT AND PILLS & CREAMS DON'T WORK.huh02.gifwhat.gifsmile27.gifcrybaby2.gif

 

I was sooo not expecting him to say that & found it depressing. Then I thought about all of the things that are out there on the market for cellulite & realized that it sucks that so many products are labeled to "cure" when it can't be cured.

Here's the link from Oprah.com:

Dr. Oz's Beauty Book

 

"If there's one thing women want a magic pill for, it's cellulite. Dr. Oz is here with some bad news. "You can't cure it. There's nothing you can do about it," he says.

 

Cellulite is actually a collection of fat cells next to arteries that get larger when they take in extra nutrients, which increase as you age. "As those molecules of fat begin to accumulate in the individual fat cells, those cells become nice and big and plump," Dr. Oz says. As the cells grow, they suck more blood supply toward them, which helps them to keep growing. "They blow up like individual balloons.""

I know I caught the 7pm show and wanted to die crybaby2.gif I started to feel like everything that I have done so far was for nothing, But my FI insist that I keep up the leg exercises because he sees a difference.

Yeah, thats the time that I caught it too.

I really didn't want to post what he said but I thought that it wasn't right how the cosmetics industry has us thinking that all these creams work.

It was also the first time that I heard anyone give a "medical" explanation of cellulite. I don't know why I never thought to actually look it up myself. Cuz based on what he said I can understand why creams wouldn't work.

 

Anyway, I think you should keep up anything that you're doing especially if it makes a difference.

Hi Ladies! So my Mom saw the Oprah yesterday and was telling me the same stuff. The above mentioned coffee rub works, it's just a temporary solution though. I know alot of the vacations I have been on the spa's have a anti cellulite wrap. Here is how it works, they massage caffeinated cream in into problem areas and wrap you in some seaweed and other stuff. The seaweed and other stuff sucks the water out of your body while the caffeine swells the fat cells making the skin look smother, lasts about a week and you lose about 8-12 inches in that area. I remember it being expensive but worth it for the week in the sun. I have also heard that massage in general smooths the appearance, but there is no way to get rid of it ;(

I just saw the same episode. I am having a hard time accepting that there is nothing you can do. I was trying to figure out if hf was saying that there is no topical or oral cure and the only thing the cosmetic companies are ripping us off. But I surprised that he did not even say the appearance can be help with proper a proper diet and exercise (especially with his medical explanation of cellulite). For give me if I'm babbling but I am still in shock from hearing such a cut & dry no.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
