It’s amazing how many cellulite scams are out there. I can think of at least a dozen off the top of my head, but in this post I’m going to focus on a few of the most common cellulite scams.
If you’re trying to get rid of your cellulite, beware of these. Every one of them is a huge waste of money.
Anti-cellulite creams and gels: This is probably the most common. I see ads for these all over the place. Too bad they’re completely bogus. As I explained in my article about the Symulast Method, cellulite has more to do with your muscle fibers than with your skin. The reason so many people fall for it is because these lotions contain niacin and caffeine which cause redness and a tingling sensation, making people think the product is actually working.
Body Wraps: Another common cellulite scam. Body wraps can actually work for a few hours, but only because they dehydrate your skin. Once your skin is rehydrated, the cellulite comes right back.
Liposuction: If anything, liposuction could make your cellulite worse! Any plastic surgeon that recommends using liposuction to get rid of cellulite is lying. Besides, liposuction can be dangerous.
Massages: These feel nice, but I challenge you to find a reputable massage therapist that claims to be able to rub away your cellulite. Again, your cellulite isn’t a problem with your skin. It has to do with the muscle tissue beneath your skin.
Sneakers: People who push the anti-cellulite sneakers at least have the right idea, that you need to build up your leg muscles. Unfortunately, just walking around in these shoes won’t be enough. You need a variety of leg exercises if you’re going to make a difference.
Tanning: This isn’t a real solution. While it’s true that tanning can make your cellulite less visible from a distance, you’ll still be able to see it up close. Imagine a guy walking toward you on the beach then changing direction when he gets within ten yards.
There’s no easy solution. The truth about cellulite is that you will have to do some work to get rid of it. That’s the bad news. The good news is that there actually is a solution. You can learn more about Joey Atlas’ system on his website.
