Ask any woman on the street what the definition of “cellulite” is and you’ll get a confused variety of answers. From “toxic fat pockets” to “bands of fiber pulling down on the skin” and many things in between
Truth is: most people don’t know what “cellulite” actually is, or, what causes this odd appearance of the lower-body trouble-zones & problem-areas…
This is no surprise as there actually is no such thing as ‘cellulite’… So how do we get rid of something which doesn’t exist?
Here’s the answer:
The word, “cellulite”, was cleverly made-up several decades ago, in a European beauty-spa, to DESCRIBE the dimpled, rippled and shadowy appearance of skin in the mushy lower-body problem-zones of the female body. (butt, hips, thighs, legs, belly, etc…) [*1]
The beauty spas then started cashing-in and profiting big-time by marketing “beauty” services and products to get rid of “cellulite”. And if you’re like most women who’ve been challenged by this issue, then you probably already know all of those passive and superficial treatments do not get rid of the problems on your buns, legs, belly and thighs.
In order to get the skin of the body to become smooth, tight, lifted and attractive – there are 5 critical steps to take:
5 Steps to End Cellulite
STEP # 1: You cannot get rid of it by rubbing a phony lotion or “special” cream on your trouble zones and problem spots. So stop wasting so much money on them.
Despite the fact that there are dozens of supposed ‘cellulite reduction creams’ on the market, there is no possible way for any one of them, no matter how expensive, to get rid of your cellulite. Cellulite is not a skin problem. It’s an underlying structural issue, that is only corrected by reversing the hidden cause beneath your “cellulite” trouble spots. [*2]
Since the mushy dimples, ripples and saggy shadows are a superficial symptom of a problem below the surface; it’s impossible for the creams, lotions or gels to have any physiological impact on the issue…
“You won’t find a cellulite cure in cosmetic products or procedures… The more (________________) you create, the less of a problem it becomes.” — Dr. Jeffrey Sklar, assistant clinical professor of dermatology at Columbia University in New York City, New York
STEP # 2: Risky and expensive ‘medi-spa treatments’ can only reduce your bank account – not your cellulite problems. And there are many consumer reports about women being seriously scarred or injured as well.
So avoid these, no matter how much they are hyped-up or how hard they may be pushed on you.
Painful, dangerous and uncomfortable services ranging from lasers to body-wrapping have been proven to be totally ineffective when it comes to cellulite. However, advertising loopholes allow these services to be cleverly marketed to desperate women who are at wits end with the unwanted body problems.
We’ve heard from 3 former “beauty-spa” technicians over the last 7 years who were bold enough to tell us about how they were trained to lie to the women customers about “cellulite” and how to string them on for months and months of expensive treatments (promising the results will “eventually come”), fully knowing what they are doing CANNOT get rid of “cellulite”, and also endanger their unsuspecting customers, while costing them lots of hard-earned money. [*3]
You can avoid that from here forward though…
STEP # 3: The unattractive dimples, shadows and saggy ripples known as cellulite are not ‘genetic’ and you are NOT stuck with them forever.
So, do NOT believe this myth or it will block you from getting rid of your cellulite.These two ridiculous myths are often passed around by ‘neighborhood know-it-alls’ – and many women actually believe these 2 myths – especially if they haven’t found the right way to get rid of the cellulite. [*4]
Yes – it’s common to see a mother and daughter, both with the lower-body “orange peel” look, BUT this doesn’t mean cellulite is genetic – it simply means both women have not found a way to lift, tone and firm the muscle layers under the dimpled, saggy skin layers on the surface.
“With the right plan, you can reduce cellulite and make your lower body smoother and firmer… When we put 16 women ages 26 to 66 on a program for 8 weeks, all of them reported less cellulite in their lower body. And 70 percent of them reported a lot less.”
— Dr. Wayne L. Westcott, PhD., Prevention advisor
STEP # 4: You can get rid of cellulite, regardless of your age – or when you began to notice it. So don’t let anyone else tell you otherwise:
Since cellulite is a structural issue (atrophied muscle layer) – it can be corrected with simple and unique toning movements which target these areas.
“You won’t find a cellulite cure in cosmetic products or procedures… The more muscle-tone you create, the less of a problem it becomes.”
— Dr. Jeffrey Sklar, assistant clinical professor of dermatology at Columbia University in New York City, New York
STEP # 5: The only proven way to permanently get rid of the dimples and shadows of cellulite is through a series of simple, yet specifically targeted lower-body movements – which properly stimulate the muscle layers of the legs, buns, hips, belly and thighs:
These unique movements focus on lifting, shaping and toning the muscle layers so they gently push outward against the skin – to bring back the smooth, tight, lifted and sexy appearance.
This is how regular women reverse the cause of cellulite… AND, if there happens to be any excess fat in those zones – it will be burned off as fuel by the muscles. This bonus of losing any unhealthy excess body-fat is nice because it reveals a great body and it works wonders for your health profile.
BUT you won’t learn about these unique slow-tempo movements in the gym or your local health club. Because…
1 – These body movements are NOT done with typical weights and machine type exercises. Most regular instructors don’t even know about this type of targeted cellulite-killing method.
2 – These gentle moves can be done right at home, in total privacy.
3 – The female lower-body has over 90 muscles:
Picture those 90 muscles BENEATH your skin’s surface in your legs, butt, hips, belly, midriff and thigh zones. That’s where the magic happens in regards to true and visible improvements in the trouble-spots and problem-areas…
These are simple, unique moves you can start doing today, right in the privacy of your own home. And if you start this type of targeted muscle stimulation method today – you will start feeling results within 2 weeks and seeing results within 3 to 4 weeks.
EXTRA TIP – # 6: The Dimples, Ripples and Shadows of Cellulite Get Worse if They Are Not Taken Care of Properly. [*6] And the worse it gets, the harder it is to reverse. [*7]
So, follow the method to avoid further frustration, disgust and anger. It’s your body so just do the right thing for it.
