Horse Chestnut Extract

The ingredient aescin, found in horse chestnut extract, is useful for decreasing small pores on the capillary walls and improving blood flow. Creams containing horse chestnut extract also reduce inflammation and fluid build-up and are available at health food stores.

Anti-Cellulite Clothing

Capri leggings made by Delfin Spa contain a bioceramic material that generates heat and helps break down cellulite cells. Delfin Spa capris and other apparel are available online.

Elastic underwear pinches on the cellulite, exaggerating its appearance. Switch to non-elastic undergarments made of smooth fabric with an invisible edge. You’ll create even pressure on the skin, increase blood flow, and prevent fat from being pushed up and deposited in unwanted areas. Thongs and capri-length undergarments that reach just below the knee are also good choices.

The Truth Behind Top-Selling Cellulite Products 

Most anti-cellulite products promise miracles in no time. But how many of these actually deliver? Here’s what you need to know.

Massage Devices

Massage devices actually DO work. Here’s why: Cellulite develops because fibrous connective bands between the skin and fat pull the fat to the surface, creating a rippled skin appearance. By creating friction, you can loosen or soften those bands temporarily. Massage helps by stimulating circulation and draining excess fluids. When the fat cells aren’t as “full,” the lumps appear smoothed. Try a massage product with battery-powered rollers.
