When it comes to making the body look the best that it can look, money is no object. Even if you’re struggling to make ends meet, it can still be awfully tempting to spend what you don’t have on the search for the elusive cellulite busters.
1) Cellulite Creams
Body beauty is a huge business. Or maybe instead of body beauty it should be called what you believe about your body is huge business. Because manufacturers play on your beliefs about your body.
They tell you that if you only bought this or that, you could finally get rid of that unsightly cellulite and then you’d be happy. They advertise beautiful people with no cellulite of course, frolicking in their beachwear laughing and having a wonderful life.
That’s the subliminal message they’re sending you. See? If you got rid of your cellulite, then a beautiful life awaits you, too. These companies are sending women by the droves to buy expensive creams that promise to help them kick every last vestige of cellulite out of their body.
So women buy the cream that doesn’t help.
2) Loofahs and Cellulite
Then loofahs are next on the list. If you’ll just buy one of these and scrub your skin, it’ll look as smooth as it once did before cellulite showed up.
That’s a lie. You can’t scrub your skin smooth and free of cellulite.
3) Body Wraps
Body wraps become the next big “beat cellulite” product. Just try it and watch all of that dimpling disappear.
You try it and lo and behold, the cellulite is gone. It’s a miracle! No, what happened was that the body wrap dehydrated your body. When you get wrapped up like a mummy and told to exercise (like is practiced at some salons that specialize in body wraps), you sweat out your body’s excess water.
A claim of cellulite loss through this procedure is not only a lie, but a dangerous lie. Within a couple of days, that water loss is recouped by your body. You didn’t lose any cellulite.
You lost time and money. The cellulite will show back up, but the time and money you won’t get back.
On the other hand, the Naked Beauty Program isn’t one that keeps reaching into your pockets for more and more cash every time the cellulite makes a return appearance. You learn the system once, and it works long-term.
4) Tanning Away Cellulite
Some women are buying into the belief that tanning can make cellulite disappear. So they head out to the beach or lay out in the sun as often as possible so that the cellulite won’t show. Cellulite, whether tanned or not, is still cellulite and tanning doesn’t fool anyone into not seeing what’s there.
Plus, you’re putting your body at further risk. Not only could you get skin cancer, but getting a tan can give your skin a leathery appearance – which makes cellulite more noticeable.
The “tan in a bottle” lotions that promise you a healthy glow look abnormal, especially in the colder months when no one else looks tanned. Some people might tell you that tanning lotions make your skin look even, which makes cellulite disappear.
While this tanning cream can hide uneven skin tones, it can’t hide what’s below the surface where cellulite resides. Retinol cream is touted as a help for cellulite. While this cream can help minimize the look of cellulite, it doesn’t completely take away the fact that the cellulite is noticeable.
5) Liposuctioning Cellulite
There are numerous liposuction procedures performed in the quest to get rid of cellulite. This procedure is costly, risky and can make your cellulite look much worse than when you first went in to have the liposuction done.
When you have this procedure done, you’re essentially having the fat deposits sucked from your body. While in theory, this may seem like the ideal route to go, it’s not – and not just because it can make the cellulite look worse.
The reason that it can look worse is because the surgeon can’t control how the clumps of fat are suctioned out of the body. The area gets vacuumed as a whole rather than individual fat deposits being targeted.
So your doctor might get some of the fat, but leave some behind. When the healing is done, you could end up with an area that looks even lumpier. Worse that not getting the improvement that you wanted, you’re out thousands of dollars.
Numerous people, some well known, have suffered complications and some have died during liposuction. The FDA lists the risks associated with liposuction. Besides infections that can put your life at risk, you could get an embolism, suffer a puncture wound, develop necrosis or even die.
An attempt to get rid of cellulite should never put your life at risk.
6) Cellulite Massage
Cellulite massage has been touted as a non-invasive procedure that can rid the body of lumpy cellulite. There are claims that it can make you look cellulite free and images of beautifully toned bodies often accompany the ads.
This is another cellulite lie that preys on a woman’s desire to have a great looking body. Using this method, the deep tissues of the body are vigorously massaged. During some of the massages, only hands are used while at other times, certain tools are used.
When tools are used, they’re maneuvered over the body with some pressure. The massage can be painful as this force is applied. Once the massage therapy is concluded, those dimples are supposed to be history.
This method claims that with a few (expensive) sessions, any woman will suddenly see a new, cellulite free body that she can be proud of. While at first glance, it does look like that dimpled skin has been smoothed out and the cellulite is gone for good, like the body wrap method, this is just a temporary fix.
The pressure of the massage can be so forceful that it’s causing the skin to swell slightly. When the outer skin swells, it’s covering up the cellulite dimples. But when the swelling is gone, the dimples will reappear.
Best Way to Rid Your Body of Cellulite
Cellulite is part of everyone’s body. Nothing you do is going to stop the factors already in play that determine who gets what degree of cellulite. But whether or not that cellulite remains noticeable is in your control.
You don’t have to waste money on procedures that don’t work and you certainly don’t have to put your life at risk to get the smooth looking body that you want. First, you want to make sure that you’re not starving your body of the hydration that you need.
When you stay hydrated, it shows on your skin. You end up with skin that looks a lot smoother – and that can help lumpy areas look better. Secondly, you need to turn that fat into smooth muscle so that you burn up the fat inside your body.
But you really do need to know how to do this because some methods don’t work. If you’ve been going to the gym for awhile now, you probably haven’t noticed a change in how your cellulite looks.
That’s because some methods you’re trying to use to turn fat into muscle just don’t work. But that’s not your fault. You may have believed the myths out there that tell you what you need to do to get rid of cellulite.
Just because what you’ve tried hasn’t worked, it doesn’t mean that you should give up trying. There is a great way that you can get your body to the point where all you see is smooth, great looking skin and the cellulite can’t be seen.
There isn’t going to be a magic pill, potion or cream. There are no shortcuts to looking good when you have cellulite. It’s going to take some effort on your part. But if you’re committed to getting your body to the point where you’re happy with the way it looks, then you can do this.
You can eliminate the unsightly cellulite that makes you cringe when you think of putting on a bikini. You can reach the point where you’re thrilled with every opportunity that comes your way to show off how great your body looks.
