Default Cellulite cream?

Do any of them help to reduce the look of cellulite?

I want to try it.

I know the Nivea one is good. There was Tyra show challenge, and all the people got cellutlite gone and thinner thighs. Also, exfoliating is key to getting rid of cellulite. You have to scrub hard with a scrubby (those little ones you use when you take a bath) to get rid of dead skin cells, and further reduce cellulite. Balanced diet, exercise. Hope I helped! Good luck with bikini season!

All cellulite creams are nonsense. Nothing topical will do anything, except maybe moisturize your skin a bit.

Yes, it's true.

Losing fat is the only way to get rid of cellulite. And some women simply cannot lose enough fat while still maintaining a healthy body composition.

Cellulite is largely genetic. There are female athletes with unusually low body fat and high muscle mass than most women...who nevertheless have cellulite.

Those creams work by plumping your skin so the cellulite is less noticeable. Otherwise, they're hogwash.

Actually, this is not true. Even the smallest of models can get cellulite. It's not about how large you are or how much weight you lose. Cellulite is mainly a genetics problem.

Oh wow, I was really confused about your post, since I thought I said the exact same thing. But I see that I meant to write, "losing fat is the only way to get rid of." In other words, cellulite is less apparent if you have lower body fat.

I've tried most of the creams at one point or another. They don't work. There are some spa treatments that supposedly work, at least temporarily. I've had cellulite since I was a teen. I like how I look mostly, but it really chaps my hide that I have never had, and likely never will have, a cellulite-free bikini body. I get so jealous of people who've never had it. It's just genetic for me.
