Science, research and advances in technology, have made it easier than ever to rid yourself of the annoying manifestations of cellulite on your body. There are so many different anti-cellulite creams on the market that it can be difficult to pick the best ones unless you know what ingredients make up a truly good anti-cellulite cream.
There are anti-cellulite creams that contain a lot of natural ingredients, chemicals, or a mixture of both. Many of these creams are really helpful in fighting the emergence of cellulite and in keeping your skin toned and supple. Simple research is required to determine which anti-cellulite cream is best for your cellulite problem. The Internet is a great tool for doing this research, and you can also get good advice from your physician.
Because of the many creams that are available, you can expect to see a wide range in the prices of these creams and lotions. Do not fall into the trap of thinking that the more expensive the cream, the more effective it will be. That is simply not the case. You will find expensive creams that work well and you will find inexpensive creams that work equally as well.
If you do your research and find the ingredients that are required to produce the results that you seek, you will also be able to find the right cream that fits into your budget. Do a basic Google search and you will have more than enough to read through that will enable you to determine the ingredients that have to be in the cream in order for it to be effective.
Everything is in the ingredients and some of the main ingredients are universal and will be found in all of the anti-cellulite creams that really work well. Probably, the first ingredient on every anti-cellulite cream list is caffeine.
Research studies have confirmed that caffeine works exceptionally well in reducing the formation of cellulite deposits in the skin. Caffeine stimulates blood circulation to the areas affected by cellulite, while aiding in the breakup of the large fat cells in the dermis that push up on the outer layers of the skin causing that “cottage cheese” look.
Users of anti-cellulite creams contain caffeine report experiencing a lessening in the amount of cellulite in their upper and lower thighs. This is very important for female users of anti-cellulite creams because most women tend to have more fatty tissue in the thighs, buttocks, hips and the lower abdominal area.
Anti cellulite creams that contain 7% caffeine in their makeup have been verified to be incredibly efficient in the management of cellulite. In addition, they showed an overall slimming in the area of the thighs.
Retinol is another important ingredient that is found in the better anti-cellulite creams. Retinol works to repair the connective tissues which bind the cells of the dermis, the layer directly under the skin, which contains the fat cells, together.
When there is weak connective tissue, cellulite tends to build up quicker because of the lack of resistance in the cells. Retinol is also an ingredient that is used in wrinkle treatment creams because it helps to develop the thickness of the epidermis and promotes blood circulation in all layers of the skin.
Vitamins E is comprised of tocopherols and tocotrienols, which have antioxidant properties that stabilize cell membranes by preventing the oxidation of their unsaturated fatty acid components. The most potent of these is “a-tocopherol”, which slows down the aging process. It has a recommended dosage of between 400mg and 800m per day. Vitamin C is essential in maintaining healthy connective tissues and for maintaining the integrity of cell walls. Vitamin C is necessary for the synthesis of collagen which increases the strength and suppleness of the skin. Collagen works to reverse the damaging effects that nervous tension and too much sun exposure can have on the skin. The recommended daily intake is for an adult is 30mg.
Aminophylline is a more recent addition to anti-cellulite creams that may be the most important ingredient of all. It was originally developed to control asthma as a bronco-dilator. When applied topically to the skin as part of an anti-cellulite cream, it has proved to be very effective in diminishing cellulite deposits in your body. It is a potent ingredient, with no reported side-effects, and because it is applied topically, it does not necessitate a prescription.
These ingredients should be in any anti-cellulite cream that you purchase. As you research the various products, you will find that these ingredients are in all of the creams that are highly rated. Good luck with your research and say goodbye to your cellulite!
