EDITOR’S NOTE: This article is by no means an endorsement or recommendation of any specific cellulite cream or anti-cellulite lotion listed below.
Nor is it an indication or hint that any cellulite cream of lotion will actually get rid of your cellulite.
Because they can’t and won’t, no matter what’s in them.
Twisted Claims and Strange Ingredients of Cellulite Creams and Lotions
If you were to analyze all these cellulite products individually – you would find a bizarre array of ingredients ranging from horse-chestnut to dimethylaminoethanol to aminophylline (an asthma medication).
You would also see an assortment of claims ranging from “removes waste and toxins in the skin” to “speeds lipolysis of fat stores and tones skin as result”. Which might make you wonder “Which of these claims is actually tied to cellulite removal if they are all different?”
So, here are 22 of them; in no specific order:

Why So Many Cellulite Creams and Anti-Cellulite Lotions?
So, Why are there so many?
Here’s the reason: Since none of them work, women keep trying the next one, and the next one, and the next one. All out of desperation, thinking “one of them has to work for me and get rid of the cellulite…”
Here is an eye-opening quote from an ABC News review on various cellulite treatments:
Professor of Plastic Surgery Exposes the Truth
“Women who believe that they can eliminate cellulite through creams are likely to be disappointed. So-called cellulite is the natural anatomic characteristic of many women’s thighs and buttocks, (especially women who have let their muscle structure become atrophied and saggy)” Brody said.
“It is unrelated to weight gain or body-fat loss, or the skin. There is absolutely no surgical or medical solution to women’s dislike of this bumpy and dimpled appearance except for the psychological self-deception of wanting to believe the ads and deceiving claims.” said Dr. Garry S. Brody, a professor of plastic surgery at the University of Southern California.
Some Women See Improvements, If They Eat Right and Exercise While…
Now, here is the sneakiest move of them all (besides the fake before and after photos) – some companies will sponsor studies where the users of the product are also “prescribed a healthy eating plan and an exercise routine to follow during the study period” … and when these women see any kind of improvements at the end of the study, the company claims the changes came from the product.
Crazy, but true.
Your Solution Isn’t In a Bottle–It’s In Your Muscles
What this all points to is certain exercises can work to get rid of the appearance of cellulite (the bumps and dimples of the skin). But what most women, and even medical and fitness professionals, don’t know is this:
There are exercises and movements which are specifically targeted at reversing the muscular atrophy, flatness and mushiness in the lower-body trouble spots and problem areas of the female body.
When these unique and gentle exercises cause the muscles under the dimpled, rippled and shadowy skin to get lifted, sculpted, firmly toned, strengthened and healthy they push outward against the loose and bumpy skin, making it smooth and tight.
Firm, smooth and tight skin is what you want to see when wearing shorts, a skirt, a bikini and most of all—when naked.
This CANNOT be achieved with any cellulite creams or anti-cellulite lotions.
This Is About Your Physiology–Not a Superficial
It’s scientifically and physiologically impossible. A cream or lotion placed on the skin has no effect on the muscle layers under the trouble spots and problem areas.
The only thing which works are the right muscle stimulating movements. These exercises must be combined in a precise way in order to create the synergistic effect. And they must be done with proper Form, Tempo and Sequence.
These gentle, multi-dimensional body movements are NOT done with typical weights and machine type exercises. Most regular fitness instructors don’t even know about this type of targeted cellulite-killing method. (click to watch video)
