Why Cellulite Creams & Scrubs Don’t Work!
With filters, airbrushing, photoshop and the picture perfect world of Instagram, comes billion-dollar industries that sell products to women with no actual proof of their effectiveness.
Chief being miracle anti-cellulite creams that forms a major chunk of the 6 billion dollar anti-cellulite industry!
Unfortunately, cellulite creams have zero evidence of actually working and at most they even out cellulite for a brief period of time.
Hard to believe?
Well, here are the definitive reasons why cellulite creams don’t help!
#1 : Cellulite creams & scrubs don’t get absorbed by your skin.
Cellulite creams are either marketed as ‘deep action creams’ that break down cellulite from within or as creams that reduce the appearance of cellulite.
Truth it, these creams will only ever be absorbed by your skins superficial layer and can never go deep enough to actually reach cellulite in your body.
#2 : Their limited effect only short-term.
Two of the most common ingredients in cellulite creams are caffeine and retinol. Retinol is a form of vitamin A, and it is also used in most anti-aging creams. These creams are intended to improve the appearance of cellulite by improving the condition of your skin. Retinol thickens your skin so that cellulite may appear lesser.
However, there’s no actual proof that your skin’s condition improves to the level that cellulite won’t be visible. And even if it does, it would take months to see any improvement.
#3 : It’s an expensive, non-solution.
Cellulite creams range anywhere from AED 70 to AED 680 for a bottle and most of them offer only minimal and temporary solutions, if any.
Cellulite scrubs are meant for superficial exfoliation and the creams for mere improvement in skin texture. Cellulite requires you to tone your muscles, which will genuinely lessen the appearance of cellulite.
Your best bet in this battle against cellulite would be to stick to a good exercise routine that helps build muscle mass in your troubled areas and invest in treatments that rigorously help tone your body.
