Find suggestions for cellulite creams below.

Use a good anti-cellulite supplement to start the process of breaking up the cellulite.  This makes it easier to externally fight cellulite with a cream or lotion as well.  Don’t neglect your strength exercises for you thighs and legs.  Cardiovascular exercise in itself will not effectively get rid of trouble spots of cellulite.  Strength and muscle training helps “lift and tone” the cellulite, and reduce it’s appearance.  Some of the over-the-counter cellulite treatments actually do quite a good job of significantly reducing the appearance of  cellulite.  In order to achieve maximum effectiveness with these products, it is imperative that you massage the affected areas vigorously for a few minutes when applying the treatment. 

In addition to the smoothing and tightening ingredients in the treatment, the massaging stimulates circulation and helps break the collagen bands that have constricted and resulted in the “puckered” look of the affected areas.  The most effective ingredients, and what gives these products their smoothing effects, are caffeine and aminophylline.  Many also add seaweed extract as well, but this is not the most effective ingredient in the product.  In addition to the cellulite creams, lotions and gels, there is a procedure called endermology that has many women reporting extraordinary results.  It is actually a large mechanical pressure device that uses a technique similar to the process of a rolling pin rolling out dough to make cookies. 

This action kneads the problem areas with substantial pressure to break down the aforementioned collagen bands, and smooth the sponginess and puckering out for an even and toned appearance.  Drawbacks are it is expensive and does require return visits for maintenance, it can be an uncomfortable and even slightly painful process, and it may result in some temporary bruising.  Another option is oral herbal or medicinal remedies for cellulite.  Beware though.  There have not been significant studies or proof verifying whether these products actually produce results.  I cannot recommend investing in or experimenting with these newer products until substantial findings or proof are published regarding their effectiveness.  So, what else causes cellulite?  This question is still the subject of scientific debate.  We definitely know that it mostly affects women, so there is much speculation that the underlying cause is hormonal in nature. 

Many other studies suggest it is related to age, diet, genetics, and fitness/level of activity.  It has been noted that strength and toning exercises, as well as steady weight maintenance will help with the appearance of cellulite.  Frequent weight fluctuation, high fat diets, and even excessive carbonated beverages have been some of the suspected culprits as well.  Whatever the cause, if you want to minimize these unsightly dimples, there are options out there for you that are effective and affordable.  New breakthroughs are being made every day in the field of cosmetic enhancement products, so we may soon see another product that blows them all away.  It may be tomorrow, for all we know!
