You can disguise cellulite with a tan.
True – A little color can make the orange peel look less noticeable. But bottom line, cellulite is an under the skin issue and tanning damages your skin. So keep your golden glow fake. Try a self-tanning spray or lotion instead.
A low-fat diet can melt away cellulite.
False -No need to cut out carbs or stick to low-fat foods. There are no miracle foods or diets that can make cellulite disappear. The best “cellulite diet” is the same kind of diet that’s best for most everything:
- Eat lots of vegetables and fruits
- Pick whole grains instead of refined
- And choose lean protein
Almost all women have cellulite.
True -You are not alone! If you’re unhappy with your thighs, remember that about 80% of women have cellulite. Cellulite does tend to look worse as you age. To fight back, make sure you get up and move. Cellulite can be more noticeable if you don’t exercise. Working out can’t fix your skin or get rid of the “cottage cheese” look, but it can burn overall fat and boost muscle tone.
Losing weight can make cellulite look better.
True – If you’re overweight, dropping a few pounds can’t hurt. Extra body fat can make cellulite more obvious.
Men rarely get cellulite.
True – Cellulite is usually a woman thing. It’s a matter of hormones. Cellulite is basically the way a woman’s body stores fat to make sure she has enough to have a baby.
Special creams can cure cellulite.
False – Unfortunately, no cream can make you cellulite-free. If you’re looking to get firmer thighs for a new dress or bathing suit time, some creams can help — briefly. Anti-cellulite creams with caffeine may firm up your skin for about six hours.
There is an effective way to reduce cellulite and firm problem areas.
True – VelaShape is a FDA cleared device that effectively and safely reduces the appearance of cellulite and firms problem areas. This non-surgical treatment can contour and smooth areas such as thighs, buttocks, arms and stomach by shrinking the size of fat cells and fat chambers.
