I have always had a bit of dimpling but since getting sick and gaining weight, its everywhere. I’ve tried toning creams but they dont do much more than make my skin soft. Does anyone have any home made or tried and tested salon treatments? I can live with it. But I don’t much like it.

Sorry, but like anything with weight, fitness, and skin there is no “Miracle cream”. No cream will elimitate wrinkles, stretch marks, or cellulite. Weight loss is pretty much the only way to “lose” cellulite but it will possibly/probably always be there to some degree.

Unfortunately the only thing that works is cardio excercises and moisturizer together. I’m thin and I’ve always had some dimples the only time I noticed them getting less and less noticable was when I was working our regularly. Seriously they’re a pain in the butt.

The only thing that has worked for me in reducing cellulite is weight loss coupled with dry brushing.
Here’s a reference piece: http://www.mindbodygreen.com/0-12675/a-step-by-step-guide-to-dry-skin-brushing.html
I got a brush without a long handle (from The Body Shop) and try to do it twice a day. I found that when I am diligent about it, my cellulite definitely appears less visible.

I have read many times that cellulite can not be lost through weight loss. Very thin people can have cellulite (even if they were never overweight) because it’s a genetic skin condition and something that many, many people simply just have. It’s not a reflection on a person’s weight or health.

My mom always told me vitamin E helped with stretch marks/scars, maybe it would help with cellulite in combination with regular exercise? I have a vitamin E cream I use after each shower and I really like it. Haven’t tried it on cellulite but I think its helped the appearnce of my few scars.

Yipeebee: The only way that works to reduce it is losing weight and toning up. I don’t think there’s any way to totally get rid of it though… I always have some cellulite even when I’m very fit (I’m 5’3″ and fluctuate between 110 – 115 lbs). I think some people are just prone to it, and I’m one of those people. The most I’ve ever weighed was 125 and at that point I even had cellulite on my knees :\

Yipeebee: If you want to look toned, no cream is going to do that for you. You need to do strength training to gain muscle and cardio to lose fat. That will give you a toned look guaranteed.

Yes, I second the dry brushing and then applying coconut oil! Make sure the cocout oil is organic virgin n cold pressed! It works for me!

I”ve found that when I’m eating well, drinking lots of water, and working out my cellulite is dimished, but even when I was a skinny minnie I had it, it was just less noticable!

Cellulite is all about blood flow so I recommned the MELT method with a foam roller to increase circulation in the area.

Eating well, diet, exercise, lots of water..
Those are the only ‘cures’ I’ve heard of, hard work and self-discipline.

Yipeebee: Cellulite is caused by uneven distribution of fat beneath the skin’s surface. Everyone has fat beneath their skin so it has nothing to do with body weight. You can replace some of that fat with muscle by working out and that should help. Nothing topical will have an effect. Don’t be fooled by “caffeine creams” and the like. They don’t get absorbed and melt away the fat. Supposedly massaging the area helps a little but you’d have to do it a lot.
