Remedies For Reducing Cellulite

While there is no cure for cellulite, there are some treatments that can reduce it.

Cellulite is the word used to define the dimpled look of the skin that usually emerges on the hips, thighs and buttocks. It is caused by fatty deposits. Cellulite is not a disease that needs to be cured. It is a rather normal occurrence with the human body. We would, however prefer our skin was as smooth and blemish free as possible. There are many products out there that claim to eliminate cellulite, including creams, herbs, massage machines, lasers and many more. The simple and harsh truth is that there is no permanent cure - no miracle cream that will magically rid our skin of these cruel dimples. All hope need not be lost. There are some treatments that may help provide temporary enhancement.

Cellulite Treatments:

Exercise and Diet-

Good old fashioned exercise and diet are very important in helping reduce cellulite, and may be the most effective. You should exercise regularly, combining aerobic exercise and weight training for the optimum health results. A healthy diet robust in fruits and vegetables and low in fat is best to help minimize cellulite. Diet and exercise together will help keep your weight at a normal level, reducing the amount of fat in your body. Water is also important to staying healthy and maintaining a healthy diet. You should strive to drink at least eight to ten glasses of water every day.


There is a well-known treatment for cellulite known as Endermologie, which is a form of deep massage developed in France. It works with a machine that suctions the skin with a vacuum and massages it with a set of rollers. You will need to repeat these treatments of Endermologie. They are usually done on a weekly basis. Unfortunately, it is expensive. Each session can cost up to several hundred dollars, but may be as low as a hundred dollars.

The important thing to remember is that no one treatment is a guarantee for any one person. We all have different bodies, and what works for you may not work for the next person. Do be cautious when spending any of your hard earned cash on any treatment, especially any creams or pills promising a miracle cure. Shop around and talk to several professionals in the field. Remember, cellulite is completely normal, and is not a disease. Therefore, there is no permanent cure, but by continuously maintaining an overall health you may be able to reduce cellulite. Diet and exercise is the best method of doing so, but some people find that this doesn't even help reduce their cellulite. That's when they look to other methods, such as deep massage. You should keep exercising and eating healthy despite the outcome, and look into other treatments. Just remember to get second and third opinions from other professionals. Begin with diet and exercise, and then move on to trying deep massage if your wallet allows for it. If neither of these treatments seem to reduce the cellulite, ask your doctor for his or her opinion and go from there. There is no permanent cure, but you can reduce cellulite with treatments. It's just a matter of finding the right one for you.
