3 Top Cellulite Stoppers
By NewBeauty Staff |
It may be cold where you are, but actress Amanda Seyfried set a London red carpet on fire with a shiny blue H&M short suit during the UK premiere of her new film In Time. While she held her own next to co-star Justin Timberlake in the hotness department, we couldn't help but notice her amazingly toned legs, a necessity when pulling off a short-shorts look.
Are you brave enough to give it a try or is cellulite keeping you covered up? When the columns of fibrous tissue beneath the skin are engorged with fat, small pockets of fat push up on the tissue, lending that dimpled look on the surface. It may not matter how much you weigh, but rather, the structure and amount of the fat cells. So how do you combat that to get smooth, sexy legs? Read on.
Endermologie is a machine that utilizes vacuums and rollers to manipulate the fibrous tissue, stretching them out. It's often used post-liposuction to ease any irregularities, but the results are temporary.
Caffeine is one ingredient used in many topical anti-cellulite creams for its ability to block the enzyme that prevents fat from breaking down. We were impressed with Biotherm's Celluli Laser cream, loaded with caffeine and ginseng, which showed results in 10 days.
A filler like hyaluronic acid can be an effective way to plump up cellulite dimples. Treating a large area can be cost-prohibitive, so it's best if you're concerned with just a small area. But you'll get long-lasting results: up to six months.
