Is Cellulite Gel Effective?

By Candace Martin

You are not alone if you are battling cellulite somewhere on your body. Lots of people have that dimply skin on their thighs, hips and buttocks, and sometimes on their stomachs or arms. Cellulite gel is a treatment for cellulite that is becoming increasingly popular. But how well does this product really work?

Cellulite gels work by tightening the affected areas of the skin. The ingredients in the gel make the skin more elastic, which enables it to pull tighter over the fat and muscle underneath. When this happens, lumpy, furrowed skin essentially goes away. It’s likely that if you follow the instructions for the cellulite gel treatment, your cellulite will appear to be less noticeable, at least to some extent.

The only problem is that you have no means of knowing if the gel is going to work until you use it. It helps some people more than others, which you will see if you read reviews by customers who have used cellulite gel products. Some people get terrific results so they are thoroughly satisfied with the product. Other people are really disappointed because the gel did nothing for them whatsoever. And some people find that they get decent results, but if they stop using it the problem quickly returns.

The reason for this is that all cellulite creams, lotions and gels merely increase the elasticity of the skin. Certain components of these gels, like collagen, can fill out skin cells and thus smooth out the cottage cheesy-looking patches of skin. It’s really just a temporary fix for the problem, so the products will have to be used on a long term basis to keep the skin smooth.

Are cellulite gels superior to lotions or creams? They’re very similar in many respects, but the consistency and texture is different. The ingredients will likely be the same, but there are those who just like the texture of gels more than the feel of creams or lotions. Some claim that gel absorbs into the skin more easily, or it simply feels less oily.

The truth is, to truly overcome your cellulite problem, you’re going to have to manage your weight and exercise regularly. Cellulite is fat, in the end, and no cream or lotion or gel that is applied on the surface will eliminate it. So long as you understand that, cellulite gel might help you in the short term by improving your skin’s appearance so you look and feel better immediately while working on a lasting program to fix it permanently.

If you want to lose your cellulite, you’re going to have to work out. However, you need to make sure you’re doing the right exercises to eliminate the problem. Click here to learn about exercises for cellulite that really work.
