The Battle Against Cellulite: Effective Creams and Solutions

Demonised by gossip magazines and feared by countless women, cellulite is an all-too common skin condition that can have a considerable impact on your confidence. 

It is commonly found on the legs, buttocks and abdomen and is often associated with being overweight. However, the reality is that it can affect women of all shapes and sizes, regardless of their BMI.

The characteristic dimpled look occurs when fat cells push against a layer of connective tissue closer to the surface of the skin. In women, these layers are arranged vertically, whereas men have a criss-cross pattern. This is thought to be why cellulite affects women more than men.

The exact cause of cellulite is unknown, but hormones and genetics are thought to play a role. And while this condition is completely harmless, this doesn’t stop countless women looking for remedies to help cure or conceal it.

Appetite for natural and effective solutions for cellulite shows no sign of slowing down, despite the rise of the body positivity movement. In fact, many see anti-cellulite creams and treatments as a form of self-love.

Understanding Cellulite

Although completely harmless, cellulite has been the cause of countless women’s body image woes for generations. It’s difficult to point at a single cause for cellulite, and there’s still a lot we don’t understand about it, but hormones and genetics are likely to be big factors in determining if a person suffers from this type of dimpled skin. 

It has often been associated with being overweight, but even very slender individuals can have the characteristic orange-peel skin. In this recent article, we explore what causes cellulite to form, which can help you to better understand how to treat it.

While there are surgical and non-invasive procedures you can try to banish cellulite, these are typically very expensive and the results are often short-lived. You may also need multiple treatments for these to be effective. 

This is why many women turn to cost-effective and home remedies to help reduce the appearance of cellulite, or get rid of it entirely. Anti-cellulite cream is a popular approach for tackling the problem head on.

Natural Solutions for Cellulite

Topical treatments for cellulite are nothing new. There are many cellulite creams available in the UK that claim to be able to banish cellulite or diminish the appearance of orange peel skin.

It is only recently that CBD has been explored as a potential ingredient to help tackle cellulite. This innovative approach to skincare is still in its early stages, and more research is needed to understand how cannabinoid-based treatments can help with various skincare concerns.

From our research into the antioxidative and anti-inflammatory properties of cannabidiol, we have found that topical CBD is safe and effective for a wide range of skin concerns. Although it is derived from the cannabis plant, it is not the same as THC. This means it is non-psychoactive and therefore cannot get you high. 

Instead, CBD helps to support the endocannabinoid system (ECS) which is a cell messaging system present throughout the body. This system helps to regulate a wide range of processes including pain response, inflammation and even some hormones. 

CBD alone isn’t enough to tackle cellulite, but as a powerful antioxidant, it’s a promising skincare ingredient that may help when paired with other powerhouse ingredients.

Introducing MotherSage Anti-Cellulite & Slimming CBD Gel

Combining skincare ingredients is one of the most effective ways to combat cellulite, and this is precisely why we love MotherSage’s Anti-Cellulite & Slimming CBD Gel

This unique formulation contains a clinically-proven active ingredient that helps to inhibit the development of adipocytes, which are the cells specialised for fat storage. This ingredient is known as Iso-Slim Complex™.

This is combined with other active ingredients known for their anti-cellulite properties. These include V-Complex™, which is a blend of essential oils which provide myriad benefits through their terpene profiles. Terpenes are the compounds in plants that give them their distinct smell. They also offer various health benefits.

The skin-loving credentials of this deeply nourishing cream are further amped up by the inclusion of hemp seed oil which is rich in fatty acids and phytonutrients. This sits alongside Vitamin E, which is a powerful antioxidant that is essential for cell health. 

And finally, MotherSage Anti-Cellulite & Slimming CBD Gel also contains caffeine which helps to dehydrate the fat cells which can help to diminish the appearance of cellulite while also providing a slimming effect.

Why Choose MotherSage for Cellulite Reduction?

Aside from the impressive list of clinically-proven ingredients and natural botanicals, this deeply hydrating gel cream is also a nourishing treat for the skin. The gel glides onto the skin with ease, absorbing quickly and leaving behind no greasy residue.

The gel also contains cooling ingredients that can help to refresh limbs that feel heavy after a long day on your feet. This is all thanks to the essential oil blend, which includes Lemon, Cypress, Lavandin Grosso, Mentha Arvensis and Cistus Ladaniferus. 

MotherSage Anti-Cellulite & Slimming CBD Gel not only helps to diminish the appearance of cellulite, but it also helps to achieve a slimming appearance. After weight loss, you might feel that your skin isn’t as firm as you might like, and that you would like to firm things up a little to feel more confident in your body. This is where this CBD slimming gel can really shine.

With the combination of caffeine to dehydrate the fat cells and the Iso-Slim Complex™ to help inhibit the production of new fat cells, you can reduce your thigh girth by up to 3.8cm after 56 days of regular use. 

Other Methods for Reducing Cellulite

Healthy and firm skin starts with consistency, and this MotherSage Anti-Cellulite & Slimming CBD Gel is just one part of the lifestyle changes needed to achieve a measurable reduction in cellulite.

You could also consider making small lifestyle changes such as making sure you get up and move around during the day. A fitness watch will give you a little nudge to remember to move around every hour. This will help to boost circulation to your limbs and can also help to contribute to weight loss.

Your skin cells also need adequate hydration to function correctly. If you are dehydrated, you might find that you retain water, particularly in your lower limbs. This can make your legs appear more “puffy” and this can make the appearance of cellulite more pronounced.

Alongside applying this MotherSage Anti-Cellulite & Slimming CBD Gel every day, you might also want to think about including massage into your daily routine. This can help to drain your lymphatic system, which will help to reduce fluid retention. 

Not to mention, it’s an excellent mindful practice that can help you to connect with and appreciate your body. Try MotherSage CBD Body Oil as a nourishing treat that you can pair with massage tools for an indulgent treat.

Enhancing Your Skincare Routine with CBD

CBD is great for more than just getting rid of cellulite. It’s growing in popularity in the skincare sector as an effective method for managing specific skincare concerns like eczema, psoriasis and acne.

CBD interacts with endocannabinoid receptors in the skin to support the optimum function of this signalling system. The fatty acids found in CBD also help to support the skin’s moisture barrier to help improve hydration and repair chapped or dry skin. Try MotherSage CBD Lip Balm for tackling chapped lips on the go.

CBD skin care products are safe and effective for the whole body. And since the CBD does not pass into the bloodstream, you don’t need to be as observant about your CBD use with topicals than you would with CBD oil or gummies.

Final Thoughts on Cellulite Treatment

Cellulite might not be dangerous or bad for your health, but there’s no denying the negative impact it can have on a person’s confidence. If you’re looking for natural and effective solutions for how to reduce cellulite, the best approach is usually to try multiple methods.

Small lifestyle changes coupled with skin care interventions can help to reduce cellulite and to diminish the appearance of orange peel skin. When choosing a cellulite cream, it’s vital to pick one with clinically-proven ingredients. It’s also important to look for solutions found in nature, as this will limit exposure to harsh chemicals.
