So Long, Cottage Cheese

Ugh!  We get it!  It can be an issue for some women.  Cellulite – that bumpy appearance on the thighs, tummy and butt.  It’s NOT a sign that you need to loose weight.  It’s NOT a sign that you’re not healthy!  It’s NOT a sign that you’re doing anything wrong. 

It’s anatomy! 

I give you permission to LOVE YOURSELF right now!

FACT:  Women have different patterns of fascia in their skin than men.  Men have linear patterns of fascia in their skin while women have crisscrossed patterns.

This crisscross patterned fascia allows adipose tissue (fat) cells to herniate through, which causes the bumpy appearance.  So you’re not fat, or out of shape, you don’t’ have bad eating habits. Well, you may have bad eating habits, but who doesn’t love pizza and chocolate cake?  I mean, who, tell me! It’s more like you’re genetically pre-disposed to this, yes that’s it!    

No amount of dieting or working out will fix this.  You can’t “Get Physical” like Olivia Newton-John sang in 1981.

It won't help. 

Want to try and fight cellulite? You need to be strategic.  You need to understand the science of cellulite.  The goal is to shrink the adipose tissue (fat) cells.  This will minimize the appearance.  But how?  How for the love of all things that are holy do you do that? 

There are lots of options to treat cellulite.  Some people laser it, some get radiofrequency treatments, hell, some people even freeze it.  But there is an easier, softer way. 

Daily applications of anti-cellulite creams that work to reduce the volume of fat cells with all sorts of active ingredients, some as common as caffeine.  The goal is to stimulate circulation and reduce the size of those damn cells. 

We reached out to some of the most respected spa product lines in the country and asked for anti-cellulite creams that had some science behind them.  You’re sure to love what we got back. These products are rich in caffeine and trademarked ingredients that inhibit fat storage.  We even found creams rich in human stem cells!
