We should take a look at what cellulite is to get a better idea of how the cellulite cream works. First of all, it has to be mentioned that cellulite is not a medical condition. Once it was considered an abnormality and a medical problem. But further research showed that cellulite is a mainly cosmetic problem.
Cellulite is formed by inside skin fat deposits. Mostly, these fat deposits are located on the tights, buttocks, belly and arms. As it was already mentioned, women are much more subjected to cellulite, than men. These inside skin deposits are natural. They lay deep inside the skin underneath the two top skin layers. These fat cells start popping up and causing the orange peel effect on your skin, when the collagen conjunctive tissues stiffen up and start getting a stronger pull on the skin. Or, it happens, if your inside skin fat deposits grow too large.
How does cream work?
Most creams with anticellulite effect contain caffeine in combination with other chemicals. According to research caffeine possesses strong fat burning properties. These creams also have the ingredients, which help them to penetrate deep inside the skin. Plus, they have many ingredients, which make your skin smoother, tighter and more shining.
Myths and facts
If you compare the information on cellulite and on creams, you get an idea of what real effects these creams can have on your cellulite affected skin. Potentially, caffeine in creams for cellulite is capable of burning fat in your skin. But, since those fat deposits lay deep inside the skin, the creams are not able to supply any significant quantity of caffeine to really burn them.
That is the first anticellulite cream myth. Potentially it is able to burn the fat and smooth down cellulite look on your skin. But in reality it is not achievable. That is one reason why the effects of anticellulite cream application are not lasting.
Using creams can indeed tighten up your skin, make it smooth looking and shining. But, this effect lasts only a few days after the course of regular cream application. You should remember that creams are unable to treat the real cause of cellulite. They are not cellulite cures. And do not produce any lasting anti cellulite effects. Besides, their efficacy does not surpass 80 percent of cellulite appearance reduction.
As you may see now, using a cellulite cream may be quite beneficial, if you use it constantly over a long period of time. However, such creams are not cures for cellulite and cannot help you to get rid of it for good.
