6 Ways to Reduce the Look of Cellulite

The good news is, most of us have something in common with supermodels. The bad news? It’s cellulite! Yes, even catwalk-strutting supermodels get cellulite, that dimpled, ‘orange-peel’ skin that shows up on our legs, butt, stomach and even the backs of our arms! While there is no ‘cure’ for cellulite - even liposuction doesn’t get rid of it – there are steps we can take to reduce its appearance and give our skin a smoother, more toned look.

1. Drink Up

Drinking water is essential for all areas of health and most of us don’t get enough on a daily basis. Avoid alcohol and caffeine-containing beverages which act as diuretics, and accelerate water loss.

Instead sip water on a regular basis to replenish levels of hydration and encourage the elimination of toxins and waste in our body that can contribute to the problem of cellulite. So, drink up – as long as it’s water!

2. Eat Clean

Just as water has a detoxifying effect, eating a clean, healthy, plant-based diet can do the same. Avoiding over-processed, high sugar, and trans-fat-filled foods stops the system from becoming a toxic stew which ultimately shows on our skin.

Steering clear of high sodium foods helps reduce bloating while chowing down on foods that are full of fiber encourages elimination and the removal of built-up waste, all of which contributes to the problem of cellulite.

3. Prevention Products

There are literally thousands of products on the market that claim to help get rid of cellulite and it can be hard to know which are actually worth spending our hard-earned money on. When shopping for an effective cellulite cream, look for a brand that not only helps reduce the look of cellulite but also prevents it from forming. Solvaderm's Cellmaxa does just this with its use of Adiposlim and Adipoless, two of the most effective, clinically-tested cellulite complexes available.

4. Work it Out

No amount of exercising is going to completely get rid of all cellulite – even Olympic athletes have it! – but there’s no doubt that toning the skin, increasing muscle and losing body fat can reduce the look of those lumps and bumps.

Cutting down on calories is beneficial too as long as the skin doesn’t become loose as that will actually increase the look of cellulite. Working out also has the added benefit of boosting the circulation, moving blood and lymph for healthier-looking, invigorated skin.

5. Massage Mania

One of the most effective ways of reducing cellulite is to massage the skin, especially when using a specially-formulated cellulite treatment such as Cellmaxa. The circular, higher-pressure movements of applying the cream help to increase blood flow, and just as with exercise, move lymph and trapped toxins from the affected areas. Exfoliating scrubs are also recommended as they rid the skin of dead cells, giving the area a brighter, healthier glow.

6. Maximum Moisture

While hydrating from within is a vital part of healthy, cellulite-free skin, using highly moisturizing creams and lotions are also vital. Look for ingredients such as Hyaluronic Acid and Squalane when choosing a product, both of which are included in the Cellmaxa formula, as they have the ability to attract moisture, smooth the surface, and plump the skin; giving it an even, lump-free texture.
