Cellulite has been given quite a number of names, including cottage cheese, orange-peel skin, saddlebags, pruned legs, and even dimples. But cellulite by any other name is still cellulite and it is unattractive and unhealthy at the same time. Most women have some on their body somewhere and are unhappy about it. They would love to get rid of it so the search for the ultimate cellulite remover continues.
Even some celebrities haven't escaped the horror of cellulite. These include Mariah Carey, Jennifer Lopez, Scarlett Johansson, Sandra Bullock, and Elizabeth Hurley.
Cellulite is caused by clumps of fat cells that push up against surrounding fibrous connective tissue. This is what gives you dimples or the appearance of clumps of fat under the skin.
There are a couple of ways to combat cellulite and its negative effects but if you're genetically prone to the problem, its unlikely youll ever get rid of it. What you can do is reduce your overall fat intake to lessen the build-up of cellulite. Exercise can help you build muscle tone which in turn can make the contours of your body, including cellulite, look better.
Ever heard of flip flops that can reduce cellulite? A Manchester-based website called Love Those Shoes recently launched its own brand of sandals that will supposedly banish cellulite and tone the thighs as you walk.
These flip flops not only look great but are also heralded as a fantastic beauty treatment. Wear them and you'll be exercising all areas of your body where cellulite is normally found - your thighs, buns and stomach. The manufacturer added that you'll burn up to five times more calories with his product than you would with a normal pair of shoes or trainers.
Cellulite treatments like liposuction and mesotherapy are expensive and produce only temporary improvement. Some doctors advise against liposuction because it is designed to remove deep fat instead of cellulite which is close to the skin. For those who cant afford these expensive procedures, they can try flip flops or anti-cellulite creams like Celluthin. This popular product safely reduces cellulite.
