Skin Care Solutions for Cellulite

Cellulite Cellulite is a dimple-like skin affliction that usually occurs on the hips, thighs and butt.

Condition overview

  • Affects 90% of adult women.
  • Weight gain can attribute to cellulite, but it affects even thin women.
  • Caused by fluid retention and fat deposits in the connective tissue that’s weakened by fluctuating hormone levels.
  • This results in a dimpled-like appearance that usually appears in the hips, thighs and butt.
  • Occurs more in women as a female’s connective tissue is less flexible
  • Can be diminished in appearance with the continual use of a cellulite-targeted product like the Weleda Birch Cellulite Oil that’s been clinically proven to firm skin.

Key ingredient to look for

  • Birch

    Birch

    Known for its purifying and detoxifying effects and encourages the excretion of fluids and stimulates skin’s metabolism.

  • Green Tea

    Breaks down fat cells with extremely high levels of caffeine.

  • Witch-Hazel

    Restores circulation while improving skin tone.

  • Juniper

    Juniper

  • Cypress

  • Ruscus

    Ruscus (Butcher’s Broom)

    Tightens blood vessels, improves vein tone and reduces swelling with decongestant and astringent properties.

  • Seaweed

    Seaweed

    Helps increase skin’s elasticity and aids in the absorption of water with vitamins, amino acids and other compounds.

  • Ivy

    Ivy

    Balances fluid concentration in tissue cells by reducing water levels.

  • Rosemary

    Relaxes muscle tissue while increasing blood circulation.

Alternative recommendations

  • Weight training firms the muscle underneath the fat levels to help reduce the appearance of cellulite.
  • Cardio exercise, like running, biking or swimming, burns calories to reduce the size of fat cells resulting in the reduction of cellulite.
  • When dehydrated, your body stores extra water, which results in higher levels of cellulite.
  • Although not proven, many believe a healthy diet high in fruits, vegetables and whole grains and low in processed and fatty foods can reduce the appearance of cellulite.
  • In addition to targeted body treatments, it is essential to exercise, drink plenty of water and eat a healthy diet when trying to reduce cellulite.
