13 Cellulite Treatments That Are Almost as Good as Hitting the Gym
Cellulite creams were once the joke category of the beauty industry. These new dimple destroyers aim to change that
So it makes sense that cellulite cream has been around for years. But do cellulite products actually get rid of cellulite? The truth, unfortunately, is no. However, they do hydrate skin -- making cellulite appear less obvious. And many are loaded with caffeine, which has an instant tightening effect -- a 2012 study showed that it also helps prevent the accumulation of fat in cells, and protects against photo-aging.
But the new crop of anti-cellulite products and treatments rely on so much more than a jolt of caffeine to temporarily reduce cellulite -- instead, they're packed with plant extracts, peptides and amino acids. And in-office treatments promise even longer-lasting results. Here, the best anti-cellulite products and treatments that actually do something -- whether you're looking for a quick pick-me-up before hitting the beach in your swimsuit or want to invest in a long-term solution that could just eliminate cellulite for good.
