Although there are a litany of anti-cellulite creams that claim to contain active ingredients which reduce the appearance of dimpled skin, very few of these products are effective while finding a long-term solution to cellulite in the form of a cream is exceedingly rare. At Cellulite Talk, our goal is to expose so-called cellulite solutions that are a waste of time and money while discovering genuinely effective products. Amid the hundreds of ingredients you may encounter when choosing an anti-cellulite cream, there are only a handful worth bothering with. We take a closer look at the best cellulite cream ingredients below.
This is a type of Vitamin A that is found in a range of top quality anti-aging products. It is an antioxidant and reduces the damage caused by free radicals which are known to speed up the rate at which skin ages and sags. Retinol can also boost your body’s existing collagen production which may lead to smoother skin and a reduction in the dimples caused by cellulite. One issue with Retinol is that it should not be used by pregnant women.
This is similar in nature to Retinol as it is an ingredient commonly found in skin creams. Medical experts say that copper is found in every single one of your skin cells and when it is applied to the skin, it can dramatically increase your skin’s healing rate. Again, collagen production is promoted by this ingredient which is also effective when it comes to fighting off damage to the skin caused by excessive exposure to sunlight.
This doesn’t just give you a welcome boost in the morning! Products with caffeine in them are known to constrict the surface of your skin. The tighter your skin is, the less noticeable lumps become. It also increases blood flow thus flushing more toxins from your body. A downside is the fact that this effect is only temporary as the skin loses its tightening effect. Therefore, anti-cellulite creams containing caffeine as an active ingredient needs to be applied on a regular basis.
As well as improving the body’s immune system, Vitamin C acts as an antioxidant, increases collagen production and reduces the appearance of wrinkles.
Believe it or not, this drug is actually used to cure asthma but it can also reduce fat cells when applied to the skin. If you purchase an anti-cellulite cream containing this ingredient, keep it away from heat and use as quickly as possible after opening the container. Forget about ‘secret’ ingredients or other such nonsense. The best anti-cellulite creams contain the above ingredients which aid collagen production, act as an antioxidant and tighten the skin thus reducing the appearance of cellulite.
