They have it all – fame, fortune, and cellulite! Yes, that’s right, fascinatingly enough, one of the largest afflictions to affect celebrities, next to drugs and alcoholism of course, is cellulite. Surprised? You shouldn’t be. Cellulite is an affliction that affects everyone, regardless of status and money. Some of those that have been known to be ‘cellulite-prone’ are Paris Hilton, Felicity Huffman, Mischa Barton, Kim Kardashian, and Britney Spears.
Perhaps the fact that cellulite affects everyone should really ease the mind of the average woman. The average woman seeing those dimples on the backside of Britney Spears should have a smile on her face. She should be telling herself “If Britney has problems getting rid of it, then maybe my problems aren’t so bad!” So, what do celebrities do to solve that pesky cellulite? Normally – they airbrush it out! Unfortunately, for most of us in real life, a simple air brush won’t work. We need something that effectively reduces the appearance of cellulite and apparently, when celebrities aren’t on camera – so do they.
So what causes cellulite exactly?
Cellulite is essentially an accumulation of fats, toxins, and stretched dead skin cells. It’s a sign that the dermis (the layer below the epidermis) isn’t bringing oxygen and nutrients successfully to the epidermis, resulting in poor circulation and fat buildup. Cellulite is so common that between 80% – 90% of women have some form of cellulite somewhere on their body.
With all the money that celebrities have; the desire to stay young and fit; and the cutting edge cosmetic surgeries that they often implement upon themselves – why are so many of them afflicted with common cellulite? It’s not simply because they’re lazy, normally it’s because cellulite affects people regardless of the amount of money they have. Meaning – money can’t cure cellulite. There aren’t any ultra-expensive, effective, cellulite-removing techniques out there that celebrities implement. What this means is that celebrities have the same fears that you have about their bodies.
But still, take a look around your average room and take a look around a room full of celebrities and you’ll notice that cellulite affects celebrities drastically less. So if it’s not expensive procedures, what is it? They use the common techniques meant to treat cellulite effectively! And luckily, these techniques are all available to you! The average celebrity has so much pressure to look and appear a specific way that they will take the time to implement any and all effective techniques that they can get their hands on. What this means is that if you want to learn some of the most effective, common techniques that are out there – that you can look at the ways of celebrities.
Celebrity Cellulite Techniques
Skin Brushing – Skin brushing is the oldest and most well-known of the anti-cellulite treatments. It consists of brushing the cellulitic area with a specially designed skin brush. In order to effectively skin brush, you should purchase a skin brush, which can be bought online or in health and beauty stores. Then proceed to brush your cellulitic areas 3-4 times per week.
Focus on brushing with long, smooth strokes. When focusing on your abdomen, focus on circular strokes. The best time of day for skin brushing is when you get out of bed or right before a shower.
Anti-Cellulite Creams – The best known artificial cure to directly impact the appearance of cellulite are anti-cellulite creams. They are creams that contain many anti-cellulite ingredients such as caffeine, herbal extracts, collagen, and anti-oxidants. All of these combine in an effort to improve the circulation of the skin, resulting in healthier, revitalized skin. For the majority of those people out there with cellulite, these creams will have a beneficial effect; however, the cream will have a tremendous effect if used with the other techniques mentioned.
Exercise & Healthy Eating – Although many celebrities are often times chastised for being unintelligent, one thing we can give them credit for is proper exercise and healthy eating. This has one of the most tremendous effects upon our appearance. If you choose to ingest healthy foods within your body and then choose to exercise effectively, which works to regulate hormones, then you will not only look healthier, but feel healthier as well. Effective exercise means that you at the bare minimum run at least 20 minutes per day for 4-5 days per week. All this time added together totals less than 2 hours per week, all you have to do is sacrifice one or two days of TV to accomplish this goal.
Eating healthier is probably the more challenging to regularly accomplish. You should avoid the foods that are high in fats. Also avoid any snacks or foods that are high in sugars. Avoid processed foods and attempt to eat more organically. Focus on wholegrain foods, fruit, and vegetables. If you can ingest these types of foods into your body, typically appearances in your skin will change within 3-4 weeks, and we haven’t even mentioned how it will make you feel healthier!
Home Remedies – The home remedies that have been rumored to be used by celebrities are more of an optional step. There have been numerous methods tried upon cellulite; however, only a few have stood the test of time.
One home remedy that is commonly used, specifically for the ingredient of caffeine, is coffee grounds. This focuses upon brewing a pot of coffee and then taking the grounds and mixing them with a body lotion. After you’ve mixed the two, then massage the newly formed ‘coffee lotion’ into your skin and wrap the lotion on your skin by using a plastic wrap – then leave for 30 minutes. Of course you can avoid the messiness by simply purchasing an anti-cellulite cream…which all generally have caffeine as a main ingredient.
Celebrities Will Go To Any Lengths
You can believe me, if celebrities didn’t have anti-cellulite creams to choose from nowadays, they would be packing on the coffee grounds day after day; however, fortunately for them, they don’t have to go through that embarrassment. Fortunately for you, you don’t have to as well. You are suffering from the same things that many of those people that you’d kill to appear like, are suffering from as well. Now that you know the celebrity secrets to curing cellulite, you should give them a shot – they might just work better on you than what they work on many celebrities!
