Cellulite creams that work
Retinol cream is a proven cellulite treatment. It boosts collagen and repairs cell structure. And by encouraging this growth of collagen, it can help fill in those puckered areas. But, for a topical cream to work, it needs to be absorbed by the skin. This is why cellulite creams containing retinol also need ingredients like caffeine, to help penetrate deep into the fatty tissue.
Cellulite cream with caffeine
Caffeine is the most common cellulite cream ingredient because it works. Not only does it immediately tighten your skin, it improves circulation and shrinks fat cells. This is thanks to the antioxidants present, which penetrate the top layers of skin to break down the fat. The result? Smoother looking skin on the surface.
Homemade cellulite cream
You’ve read why caffeine is so important when it comes to combatting cellulite. So, obvioulsy, ground coffee is a great natural alternative to cellulite creams. Add 1/4 cup of ground coffee, 3 tablespoons of brown sugar and 3 tablespoons of melted coconut oil into a bowl. Mix well and then massage into your skin for 10 minutes. Then shower it off.
Cellulite cream for arms
The key here is to use a cellulite cream in conjunction with arm exercises. Look for a rich concentration of essential oils, like grapefruit and macadamia, to help eliminate toxins and excess fluids and reduce water retention.
Cellulite cream for thighs
For a quick fix, look for creams that contain particles of silica, a mineral that reflects light and gives the illusion of fewer lumps. Physical exfoliators will be your BFF too. Try body brushing every day for 2 weeks. You’ll notice the difference.
