Cellulite creams promise to work miracles, but the truth is that not all of them deliver what is claimed. It can be heartbreaking to spend dozens of dollars on a product that claims to “make cellulite disappear” and, in the end, the famous orange peel is still there… In all its splendor and proudly prominent.
It is almost inevitable not to think that we are doing something wrong, or that there is no longer a way to mitigate the body changes. In that sense, we are here to say:
There are Cellulite creams that really work!
So, the ones that actually WORK allow us to attenuate the dreaded orange peel, stretch marks, localized fat, as well as flabbiness. But beware: they attenuate the appearance, but they do not perform miracles… We also have to do our part.
Read the article and discover the different body modifications and their characteristics. Also, learn about our top 3 anti-cellulite, localized fat reducers, and firming products. Finally, learn about our extra tips for tailor-made body solutions.
Although we believe that body changes should be normalized, since they affect most women and men all over the world, we well know that the search for an improved appearance remains a constant. It’s not that we don’t like our bodies, but there is always a little extra fat that could go away… Especially in time for spring and the heat of summer! After all, how many of us don’t like to show off a more toned body in a freshly bought bikini? Or, just to improve our image and feel even better?
To mitigate or delay body changes, we have to first understand the source of the problem. Therefore, we start by explaining why body changes happen. As well as their main characteristics.
Unfortunately, there is not just one reason that causes them, but several factors. Such as, for example:
- Hormonal factors (as well as abrupt changes in weight);
- Genetic predisposition;
- Life habits (smoking, alcoholism, among others);
- Poor diet;
- Sedentarism. In other words, little physical exercise.
So if you want to reshape your silhouette, reduce fluid retention, or firm your skin and make it more toned, the starting point (after understanding the origin of the body affection) is to adopt a set of customizable solutions! Here are our suggestions…
Cellulite creams to reduce cellulite!
Cellulite affects 85% of women over the age of 20. To varying degrees, the famous orange peel appears when there is a change in the structure of the skin, which, in turn, is the result of fat accumulation and leaves the skin with a wrinkled appearance. It is common in the buttocks, legs, and arms.
- Grade 1: hard or compact cellulite
In short, in the first grade, cellulite exists, but it is only visible when you press on a certain area of your body. It is the easiest to treat, and may even disappear completely.
- Grade 2: soft or flabby cellulite
The second type of cellulite is characterized by a clearer irregularity of the skin. Here it is already visible to the naked eye and may even cause some pain, and is accompanied by a degree of sagging of the skin.
- Grade 3: edematous cellulite
The most advanced stage. In the third grade, the cellulite presents hard, painful nodules due to atrophy of the nerve endings and is evident in the eye. In addition, it can be noticed when wearing thin clothes/fabrics.
The 3 best allies against cellulite

Reducing creams for volume and localized fat
Also known as adiposity, localized fat is nothing less than the accumulation of fat in a certain area of the body. As a result, it causes an increase in volume.
It is common in the hip and/or belly area as well as considered difficult to treat. Therefore, when it comes to choosing the aesthetic treatment that will best reduce body volume, opt for care with a strong lipolytic effect (fat reducers). Especially for the abdomen, inner thighs, knees, and back.
The 2 really powerful products
Specially developed for reshaping the belly area, this intensive treatment works during the night – a period in which the fat metabolism is particularly active. Therefore, by applying it before you go to sleep, you inhibit the assimilation of fat by the adipocyte cells. As a result, the skin becomes firmer and smoother.
It also highlights the new generation of Mesosestetic body solutions. Considered an excellent body serum, the intensive mist is a biphasic concentrate, with lipolytic and remodeling action. As such, it has highly effective stimulating properties thanks to the [meso]adipoactive complex™ which increases lipolysis and reduces localized fat.
In addition, caffeine and L-carnitine increase firmness as well as tone.
It is perfect for use before exercise to boost results in rebellious areas: the abdomen and hips.
Firming care for combating sagging
After presenting its first signs at age 25, sagging may intensify (for women) following menopause. In short, it appears when there is a decrease in the capacity for fibroblast synthesis, which causes a decrease in collagen and elastin.
In other words, the progressive loss of dermal support induces a decrease in the quantity, as well as in the quality, of structural elements, and thus causes a sagging appearance of the skin. Particularly on the back of the arms (the so-called “bat wings”).
4 products to consider
Suitable for sensitive skin and pregnant women, Vinosculpt body balm restores firmness and tone to the four main areas of the body. That is arms, chest, abdominal area as well as buttocks. This is Caudalie’s ideal 4-in-1 solution for the body.
With visible results from the first month, body contours are redefined by 82%. In addition, skin is firmed and smoothed while gently nourishing and perfuming.
To achieve this, apply at least once a day – in the morning and/or evening – using a massage with upward circular movements.
Suitable for all skin types, Sesderma daeses firming milk combats while preventing body sagging caused by weight loss. But also by aging and/or pregnancy.
Thus, it has a light texture, is ultra pleasant, rich in innovative ingredients, which should be massaged with circular movements until total absorption of the product.
Firm up is a firming cream from the Bodyshock Range for flabby areas. Mainly arms, breasts, abdomen, and thighs. It consists of an innovative formula and a roller massager that enhances effectiveness as well as firmness and elasticity of the skin.
With an incredible cocktail of ingredients, Collistar lift HD body cream is one of the secrets to a well-defined body. Thanks to its melting and sensorial texture it fights the main signs of skin aging by attenuating the loss of tone and firmness. As well as irregularities.
Thus, it is especially indicated to combat the signs of aging that progressively appear on the inner arms and thighs, knees, and/or décolleté.
Reducing creams to reduce stretch marks
How are they formed? What are they?
Stretch marks are skin atrophies in the form of whitish sinuous lines (in the case of the older and more difficult to treat ones) or purple ones (the newly formed ones). They are associated with distensions caused by a rapid increase in body volume and, although they can appear anywhere on the body, they are most common on the belly, arms, and hips.
Because we know that they can cause discomfort, we advise that to reduce the appearance of these marks or scars, it is essential to keep these areas of the body hydrated. By being consistent you can prevent them from appearing or even make younger stretch marks disappear.
We recommend a powerful moisturizing cream enriched with repairing active ingredients that not only attenuates and prevents the appearance of stretch marks but also provides a feeling of freshness and softness immediately. – The Mesoestetic Bodyshock essential cream.
It is an anti-cellulite cream of quick absorption that has encapsulated active ingredients to enhance its delivery and release in the intended target.
To sum up…
To reveal a remodeled and more confident silhouette next season, you should first understand the factors that trigger and influence the development of body changes. Then combine state-of-the-art formulas, sensorial textures, and application systems with healthy lifestyles. That way, you’ll be maximizing your desired results.
Extra tips for attacking body changes:
- Practice regular physical activity. Weight training combined with cardiovascular exercise is indicated to mitigate body changes. However, get advice from a personal trainer on what is the best plan to obtain your desires.
- Balanced diet. We recommend cutting down on the consumption of carbohydrates (namely bread, pasta, rice, and potatoes) at late meals. Also, limiting the consumption of sweets (especially at the end of the day when you won’t be as active) is important.
- Ingest plenty of liquids. That is at least 1.5 liters of water per day. You can mix the consumption of water with, for example, green tea, hibiscus tea, or Caudalie’s draining organic herbal tea. They are great for combating fluid retention and eliminating toxins.
- Avoid very tight clothing as well as tight fabrics. Since they will compromise normal blood circulation.
- The massage we perform when applying the product favors circulation, achieving fat metabolization and favoring drainage and the elimination of toxins. Therefore, perform energetic circular movements.
