First let’s get the bad news out of the way: There’s still no easy cure for cellulite, a condition that plagues roughly 85 percent of women over the age of 20. That said, there are some things you can do to downplay its appearance.
What Is Cellulite?
Under your skin, there’s a network of connective-tissue strands, called septae, that hold the fat in place. If the septae aren’t strong and tightly woven together (which may be determined by genetics), the fat can bulge out between them, creating ripples on the skin’s surface—a.k.a. cellulite. Women are more likely than men to have cellulite, since they have fewer and less tightly arranged septae. Women also have thinner skin, as well as hormones that can affect the size of fat cells and the strength of the septae.
The Weight-Loss Factor
Because half the cellulite equation is fat, it would seem that losing weight through diet and exercise would help. And it might—but that depends on your skin’s elasticity. If your skin bounces back after weight loss, you may notice a reduction in cellulite. However, if your skin isn’t quite so resilient (hormones and aging could be partly to blame), it can sag, which can make bumps look worse.
The easiest short-term way to improve the appearance of cellulite is with a lotion or a cream, which fall into two main camps: those that contain caffeine, which has a temporary tightening effect and help bumps look smoother, and those with a vitamin A derivative, which over time can thicken the outer layer of the skin and make lumps less visible. These ingredients can be combined with others, such as gingko and vitamin C, both of which may improve circulation to minimize bumps and tighten the skin. Two good choices are AROMADERM CELLO GEL EXTRA 5.08 OZ. and AROMADERM CELLO GEL STRONG 5.08 OZ
For best results, massage the cream on vigorously—this helps plump up skin.
