Thalgo cellulite care

Cellulite is a condition that produces a dimpled appearance or orange peel effect on the surface of the skin. It is caused by a layer of fat under the skin that pushes against the connective tissue and beings to bulge. This bulging causes the unsightly appearance that is most commonly seen on the thighs and the buttocks. According to, “the cosmetic condition affects nearly 90% of women at some point during their lives, even women who are otherwise slender and fit.” Based on that number the odds of escaping cellulite are not in our favor but there are a few remedies that are considered effective.


1)    Creams or lotions: believe it or not, there are creams on the market that have proven results in helping to reduce the appearance of cellulite. It sounds like it’s too good to be true but clinical studies don’t lie. Take a look at Thalgo’s Intensive Correcting Cream for example, which fights and corrects the compacted (grade 3) cellulite-generating process at its source. This highly active cream features Thalgo-exclusive Oxy Active technology to help disperse pronounced cellulite. The skin’s resistance to unsightly dimples is reinforced, resulting in visibly smoother-looking skin.


2)    Scrubs: Although there are many options here, the one that has gotten the most positive response is the coffee scrub.  According to Women’s Health Magazine, “the caffeine and antioxidants in coffee are moderately effective to mitigate the appearance of cellulite in the short term. As a stimulant, the caffeine in coffee dilates blood vessels, which temporarily tones and tightens tissue. Plus, it increases circulation and reduces water retention, both of which may also help smooth the rumpled look of cellulite. The antioxidants in coffee may help to release toxins, which is not only helpful for cellulite, but for healthy skin in general.”


3)    Dry Brushing: Although it doesn’t sound convincing, the dry brushing technique has been a popular way to treat cellulite for awhile. explains: “In essence, dry brushing is a combination of exfoliation and massage that involves taking (brace yourselves) a dry brush and moving it over your body in slow, circular motions two to three times a week. The firm bristles of the brush give your skin a thorough exfoliation while the pressure helps to stimulate your circulation and, yep, lymphatic drainage, which in turn is supposed to help the body eliminate toxins.” While the the only investment here is time and a brush, beware that this technique can be rough on the skin, causing it to peel. Be sure to moisturize routinely to prevent this as much as possible. While the jury is still out on the effectiveness of dry brushing, one thing is for sure, your brushed body will surely be softer.
