Cellulite Treatment. Cellulite can be found on all types of women - slim and heavy, old and young - and over 90% of all women have it, even perfect-bodied celebs like Jennifer Lopez, Nicole Kidman and Pamela Anderson. Women spend hundreds of millions of dollars every year on cellulite treatments, everything from creams and gels to medical treatments and even anti-cellulite jeans!
For the most part, cellulite is hereditary. Dimples and ripples occur when the conjunctive fibers that hold fatty tissue between layers of skin are pulled taut or slackened, allowing tiny pockets of fat to poke through. And while a healthy diet, regular exercise, weight training and drinking plenty of water can diminish cellulite, there is no permanent cure. Even stronger measures such as plastic surgery and endermologie have only been shown to improve the appearance of cellulite, not get rid of it.
Hundreds of studies have been conducted on all the creams, procedures and products out there, and all of them have come to the same conclusions: you can't get rid of cellulite. However, there are a few things you can do to help improve it's appearance. Smoothing creams with special ingredients such as caffeine, which temporarily dehydrates the lumpy fat cells, can help. So can rich moisturizers that plump up dimpled skin. While both treatments produce only temporary improvement, they can make a woman feel better before heading out to the beach in a bikini. Two of the best things women can do are to eat right and exercise, (concentrating on lower body muscles from every angle) and applying a self-tanner, which gives the appearance of less cellulite.
