Cellulite affects 9 out of 10 women, which is why it occupies the first position in the 'ranking' of body aesthetic problems
We are in the final sprint of quarantine. Little by little, everything begins to return to normal: we go out to do sports in the open air, to walk through the streets and to enjoy the sun. If we confined ourselves in the middle of winter, now we find spring days that imply a change of wardrobe to use summer clothes with which to show off more skin. That is where the problem may come, after these days of confinement, where we have been able to eat more and worse, our body needs an express set-up to face the summer season.
Cellulite is one of the aesthetic problems that affects a greater number of women. The accumulation of adipose tissue is particularly concentrated in the hips, thighs, abdomen and buttocks. Fighting it is not easy and one of the most frequent questions is to find out what is the most effective method to end it.
To reduce cellulite, you have to be very constant and fight from different fronts. From Vozpópuli we are going to focus on anti-cellulite creams. We will also emphasize those supplements to a healthy life, such as diet or exercise, that accelerate and improve results.
How to choose an anti-cellulite cream?
The cosmetics market is so wide that products from different brands come out every day that promise similar results. The way to choose the best one that really works is to make sure that the laboratory has clinical tests that demonstrate the results they promise, leaving aside the price and putting efficiency above all else.
Choosing a good cream is just as important as using it correctly. Only then will we notice the results. You have to use them all year round, once or twice a day. They must be applied with an ascending and circular massage and accompanied by a weekly exfoliation that improves circulation and helps the cream to penetrate better.
At this time, when summer is upon us, it is best to apply it in the morning and at night for two months, after showering, and on dry skin. Although you always have to carefully read the instructions of each manufacturer to follow their indications.
How to boost your results?
To achieve even more effective, fast and lasting results, the pharmacist Rocío Escalante, expert in dermocosmetics and nutrition and owner of Arbosana Farmacia, gives us the keys that we have to take into account as accessory elements of the use of creams.
Anti-cellulite creams help if they are combined with a balanced and varied diet, in which fruits and vegetables abound, which provide fiber and are antioxidants. Foods rich in vitamin C should not be lacking, such as kiwis, citrus fruits, peppers or tomatoes, the omega 3 present in oily fish and foods with an anti-inflammatory effect such as ginger or cinnamon.
Ultra-processed foods should be avoided because they are rich in sugar and fat. Forget sweets, precooked dishes, pastries or sausages and also reduce salt consumption because it increases fluid retention. Not only do you have to change meals, but also drinks. Reduce alcohol consumption while increasing water, herbal teas and diuretic broths.
If you want to see better results from your anti-cellulite creams, you can supplement your diet with nutricosmetics. Supplements help eliminate fat, improve circulation, fight fluid retention, and ultimately improve the appearance of cellulite skin.
You have to combine aerobic sport with specific exercises
Finally, for your anti-cellulite creams to work you have to do sports. The ideal would be to combine aerobic sports such as running, swimming, dancing, zumba, skating or cycling, with specific exercises such as squats or GAP classes. Exercise does not have to involve visiting a gym, it could be enough to walk at a fast pace or forget to use the elevator to go up and down stairs.
Anti-cellulite creams that we can choose
The new Somatoline Cosmetic range of anti-cellulites has an intensive action specifically formulated that helps fight the stubbornest cellulite, reducing its appearance and smoothing the skin. Its active principles help mitigate the alterations produced by cellulite while preventing the formation of new accumulations of fat through an "anti-relapse" action.
We can find a thermoactive cream with a heat effect that is recommended for women with cellulite in the thigh area, and a cryoactive gel with a cool effect that is perfect for cases in which there are also varicose veins. Both alternatives also favor the elimination of retained liquids.
Collistar presents anti-cellulite capsules that combine the two most effective active ingredients on the market, the reducing efficacy of caffeine and the draining power of aescin.
Its pure formula does not contain water, preservatives, alcohol, colorants or other aromas, so the capsules keep all the properties of their composition intact until the moment of application.
From their first application, these capsules provide softness and smoothness to the skin, which means an improvement in the appearance of "orange peel". Results that will be improved during the following days of treatment.
Cien, Lidl's cosmetic line, also has an anti-cellulite proposal. The brand recommends a body oil made with organic pomegranate seed oil, goji berry extract, Q10 and vitamin E. This combination manages to smooth the skin and improve its elasticity. Its composition from vegetable oils cares deeply for the skin and is suitable for vegans.
Babé offers us its anti-cellulite cream that has a reducing action that helps prevent the formation of cellulite and orange peel skin while firming the tissues. The joint action of its highly concentrated anti-cellulite active ingredients, together with its massage system, manage to shape the figure. In addition, its double action, lipolytic and firming, stimulates the elimination of accumulated fat, and favors microcirculation.
The Q77 + fat burner are capsules that make the body accelerate and stimulate fat metabolism and make it more efficient. These vegetable capsules contain a powerful formula with active ingredients, such as guarana, bitter orange, green tea, artichoke and wakame extracts, which increase energy expenditure, optimize the transformation of fats and accelerate the weight loss process.
The Beoxy house presents Body Firm, a body firming that also prevents the appearance of stretch marks. Its active ingredients, among which are soy, wheat, alfalfa and radish, work on the adhesion of tissues, enhancing the consistency and firmness of the skin. It is a perfect product to use in the most critical and punished areas of the body such as the thighs, arms, buttocks, belly or chest.
My Rebotica presents a unisex treatment with fat burning gels with a hot and cold effect. Ideally, you should use both gels together. The heat effect gel is applied first, the skin is left to rest for fifteen minutes, and then the cold effect gel is used.
The product with heat effect has a great reducing capacity, helping to eliminate fat and reducing orange peel skin, achieving smoother and firmer skin and recovering the silhouette. It is achieved thanks to a combination of active principles such as caffeine, fucus, ivy or guarana that enhance circulation. For its part, the gel with a cold effect is more suitable for soft cellulite due to its intense toning and draining effect that gradually replaces accumulations of fat with muscle tissue.
Shape Perfection body oil is an anti-cellulite body oil with white mustard that regenerates, firms and reshapes the figure thanks to its activation of circulation and promotes cellular metabolism.
Its formulation is completed with milk thistle, sesame and amaranth seed oils. This complex of ingredients provides a vasodilator effect while draining water deposits from cellulite tissue. In this way, the adipocytes are emptied and the stubborn fat deposits are transformed into brown fat that works by burning calories.
