Do anti cellulite creams work?
As the new year gets underway many people will be turning their attention to holiday plans for the coming twelve months. There’s nothing better to get you through the cold, dark, winter days than to plan an escape to sunnier climes, but it’s also time to think about your summer wardrobe and what you’ll look like in your beachwear. If cellulite is bothering you, then now is a good time to find an anti cellulite cream to help restore your confidence in time for the holiday sunshine.
Causes of cellulite
Cellulite is caused by the fatty deposits under the skin pushing their way through the connective tissues and collagen fibres and up against the skin, resulting in a dimpled effect, particularly on the thighs, hips and buttocks. There are several factors that can cause the fat to push upwards including hormones, genetics, body type, thinning skin and poor circulation. Cellulite is much more common in women than in men, due to the way fat is distributed, and whilst an inactive lifestyle can make you more prone to cellulite it can affect anyone.
There is no miracle cure for cellulite. It doesn’t appear overnight so you can’t expect it to go overnight either. However, there is a lot that you can do to minimise its appearance.
How to minimise cellulite
Reducing cellulite isn’t just about targeting the affected areas but looking at improving your overall health. Eating a healthy diet, rich in fresh fruit and vegetables and low in fat and salt can help to reduce the layer of fat underneath the connective tissue, thus lessening the appearance of cellulite. Smoking can also contribute to reducing skin elasticity, so quitting the habit now will help you to avoid cellulite. You can also try a cellulite cream to help tighten the skin and smooth away dimples.
What to look for in an anti cellulite cream
When choosing a cream to help reduce cellulite it’s important to take note of the ingredients. Whilst most creams will only tackle the issue on a surface level, improving the texture of the skin to reduce the appearance of dimples, others will contain active ingredients that are known to reduce inflammation and encourage the breakdown of fatty deposits. Some creams will also contain parabens and other harmful ingredients, which may have negative effects on the skin. For this reason, it’s recommended you choose a natural product.
Our 5kind Natural Cellulite Cream has been specially formulated with 13 active ingredients, including seaweed, ginkgo biloba and vitamin E to improve blood circulation and burn fatty deposits. This deep absorbing cream provides instant firming, improving skin texture and tone to give an overall smoother appearance.
When using an anti cellulite cream you’ll need to have patience. It can take several months to see the real effects of using a cream to minimise cellulite and to maintain the levels of active ingredients in your skin you’ll need to apply the cream every day. If you start now, you’ve got plenty of time before your summer holiday to get your skin in tip top shape ready to show off your new holiday wardrobe.
