Best-Cellulite-Creams

Cellulite, the spongy, dimply, cottage cheese-looking skin that starts appearing on the thighs, hips and buttocks of girls at the onset of adolescence but refuses to go away, is a very common and highly embarrassing problem among many women.

What’s so unique about cellulite, is that it doesn’t discriminate. It can affect the thin, the overweight and even women with a perfect physique.

There are many cellulite creams and they very varied. Just like other products, there are cellulite creams that work and those that simply don’t. Today, the internet is awash with all manner of creams with almost every marketer purporting that their company offers the best solution. This has made the search for an effective anti cellulite cream taxing and tricky. Call it a paradox of plenty!

How to Identify a Cellulite Cream That Works
Many people will tell you that cellulite creams don’t work. I myself agree to a point, but not entirely because there are those that actually do seem to show visible improvements. There is a list on this page with the top three rated creams and some close runners up.

You should always look at the type of ingredients when deciding on a cream or similar treatment. A good anti cellulite product must contain ingredients with unique and proven properties which combat the underlying causes of cellulite.

A significant number of creams contain caffeine, ginseng and some antioxidants that are known for improving the skin texture and tone, but do very little to the underlying cause of cellulite. This is likely to get results in the short run but is a sure recipe for disappointment in the not-so distant future. Creams are applied topically. For this reason, there must be enough evidence to prove that the ingredients can penetrate the skin deep enough to reach the fat that causes the dimpled appearance.

Getting It Right
One ingredient that has a proven ability to penetrate the skin is retinol. It has unique properties that enable it to exfoliate the skin and increase collagen production which thickens the skin and hides the dimpling fat.

Since too much retinol dries out the skin, the correct portion must be used, and this is usually approved by the relevant accreditation authorities. Another important ingredient to consider is Dimethylaminoethanol, which is commonly known as DMAE. It is an oxidant derived from fish that penetrates the skin to combine with amino acids to stimulate the muscles to become firmer through contraction.

Before you use any cellulite product, ensure that it is accredited by relevant authorities. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the US and the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) in the UK are some of the bodies mandated to license medication through rigorous clinical trials.
