Cellulite Gel and Cellulite Cream
Many consumers who want to buy anti cellulite products often wonder if there is any difference between cellulite gel and cellulite cream. The following paragraphs will elaborate on the various differences between these two products and also elaborate on which product works best.
Cellulite creams were earlier on preferred by many people since they were the only anti cellulite product that could be applied to the skin. However, after gels were introduced in the market, people slowly started switching over to gels since gels are not sticky and gels absorb into the skin easily. Since gets get absorbed easily into the skin, these anti cellulite products do not have to be rubbed down.
Gels also contain a special ingredient known as antioxidants that reduce the effects of harmful cells in the body. These harmful cells are potent cancer causing cells that are created through the day and night; however, anti oxidants prevent the creation of these harmful cells. In addition, many gels contain Vitamin E as a preservative to increase shelf life of the product.

Since these gels also contain various natural ingredients like Jojoba oil and Vitamin E, these gels improve the skin tone and make the skin supple. Gels are also available in many fragrances that mask the smell of anti cellulite ingredients.
Majority of the companies that create anti creams use Parabens to increase the shelf life of these products, and researches indicate that parabens are toxic compounds that can cause cancer and other health problems if used continuously. The main reason creams contain parabens instead of Vitamin E is because creams cost a little lesser than gels, and companies that produce creams try to lower costs by using cheaper preservatives that is parabens.
There is no doubt that anti cellulite gels work much better than creams and gels are safer as well. Consumers should remember that while selecting an anti cellulite product, they should not only consider the price of the product but also consider their own safety so that they can get a good product that will not harm their health in any way. Gels can not only be used by adults, but also by teenagers and senior citizens since gels are safe to use and effective.
Is Cellulite Gel The Quickest And Easiest Way To Remove Cellulite?
Since there are many cellulite reduction products available in the market, people often wonder if cellulite gels are the quickest and easiest ways to remove cellulite. The following paragraphs will elaborate on the various types of cellulite reduction treatments and help you understand reasons why cellulite gels are preferred by most people.
Liposuction is considered as a good way to get rid of cellulite but most people do not realize that one session of liposuction is not enough to get rid of these deep fat pockets. Moreover, once liposuction has been used to remove cellulite from the body, this medical procedure has to be repeated every few months to ensure that cellulite doesn’t build up again. Liposuction is not only an expensive form of cellulite reduction but it is also considered dangerous since if not done correctly then there can be scarring and other problems.
Deep massage therapy is another way to get rid of cellulite however; deep massage therapy is an expensive technique to remove cellulite since massages have to be done once or twice a week for a few months. Vacuum therapy is not ideal for most people since this is an expensive technique and cannot be accessed by many people due to a lack of places that practice this cellulite reduction technique.
Cellulite creams are not considered as the first choice for cellulite reduction since these creams are sticky and greasy. Many companies also use parabens to increase the shelf life of these creams. Parabens are a group of compounds that are cost effective but very harmful when used and can cause severe health problems.
Cellulite reduction gels on the other hand are not sticky or greasy. These gels are formulated in such a way that they get absorbed into the skin easily hence acting immediately. Cellulite gels effective not only because they have a high absorption rate but also because they have certain special ingredients that force fat cells to empty all the content into the bloodstream. These gels also contain Collagen which improves the skin tone and smoothens out the skin.
Ingredients such as Jojoba Oil, Tea Tree oil, Mulberry extract, cranberry extract, blueberry extract and Vitamin E improve the skin tone, skin texture and prevent the production of free radical cells.
Since cellulite gels are not nearly as expensive as liposuction, weekly massages, vacuum therapy and other forms of cellulite treatment, many people often prefer using cellulite gels. Also these gels can be easily purchased as over the counter drugs or through online stores.
