True there is no cure for it but some of the creams help alittle, I have been using avon's cellulite cream and store bought cream together recently I use them both 2x;s a day and I have seen a little diffrence which is good. Mosturize, drink tons of water and exfoliate all help

I came across this on the internet and just wanted to share. Take from it what you like and leave the rest. It is sad that with modern technology...we can put a man on the moon, cure fatal diseases and grow human tissue and organs (just to name a few), but can't cure cellulite...LMAO

 

Cellulite Alert!

Women of all ages can fall prey to those unsightly bumps. Here's what you can do

 

Q. Yikes! All of a sudden I see that my thighs are getting kind of bumpy. What can I do to smooth them out again? I'm in my late 30's and never thought I'd get cellulite so young!

A. Cellulite doesn't discriminate. It can show up on girls in their teens--or younger. That's because, despite what you've heard about cellulite being some mysterious condition linked to "trapped toxins" or poor circulation, cellulite is simply old-fashioned fat. It just looks different because of how it's arranged.

 

 

Everyone has strands of connective tissue that separate fat cells into compartments and connect fat to skin. In women, these fibers form a honeycomb-shaped pattern, so any increase of fat tends to bulge out like stuffing in a mattress. You see less cellulite in men because their fibers run horizontally, forming a criss-cross pattern that prevents bulging or dimpling.

 

 

Though cellulite can pop up any time, it is true that cellulite does seem to appear out of nowhere and get worse with age. That's because our tissues change. Those strands of connective tissue thicken with age, and our skin gets thinner, making cellulite more noticeable. More importantly, we gain fat with age. The average woman loses 5 lb of muscle and replaces it with about 15 lb of fat every decade of her adult life, says Prevention advisor Wayne Westcott, PhD.

 

 

"Because fat is exceptionally soft, it doesn't keep our skin taut like muscle does. It also takes up more space, so it bulges out," he explains.

 

 

With the right exercise plan, you can reduce your cellulite and make your lower body look smoother and firmer, says Westcott. "When we put 16 women ages 26 to 66 on our program for 8 weeks, all of them reported less cellulite in their lower bodies. Seventy percent reported a lot less."

 

 

The trick is working all your lower body muscles from every angle, reducing the underlying fat stores and replacing lost muscle tissue to give the area a taut, toned appearance throughout.

 

 

Perform 1 set of 10 to 15 repetitions of the following exercises 3 days a week. Lift slowly, counting 2 seconds to lift and 4 seconds to lower. Before starting, warm up thoroughly with walking, stationary cycling, or light calisthenics.

Kim K had Velashape done (I think mentioned it in my previous post)...It feels like a warm deep massage (about $100 - $150 per treatment).

 

Not sure how far one is willing to go to remove the cellulite but I saw an episode of Dr. 90210 with Dr. Manus removing cellulite from a patient.

Creams that are reputable are temporary - Cellulean, Coffee, etc. Diet and weight training, along with antioxidants , seems to work trmendously over a 3 month period to reduce the appearance of cellulite drastically.

But the esthatician said that I got great results and the Bliss products were helping! She went out and bought it for herself bc it is cheaper than the stuff you can buy at the spa.
Here is the link:

It is also available at Sephora. I like the stimulator... it is a little rubber brush thing that I use to rub on my thighs in the shower. Massage is known to reduce cellulite so this is cheaper than getting regular massages. Then I use the Fatgirlslim. I also started using their under eye cream and LOVE it for reducing dark circles and puffiness.
Working out and drinking water helps the most!!! But cheating is good when you are wearing a bathing suit.
Fatgirlism? Is this also at Sephora? I have always had dark circles under my eyes and lately I am just so fed up with them!!!!!

    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
