There has been much speculation lately about a new craze in the fat-loss world regarding caffeine and cellulite. In recent times, studies have shown that caffeine taken orally (i.e. from drinking caffeinated beverages like soda and coffee) can lead to excess cellulite formation. However, studies are now showing that you can use caffeine as an instant cellulite eraser in the form of a topical ointment or skin cream.
Where does cellulite come from?
Before we discuss the effects of caffeine and cellulite and using caffeine-based skin creams as an instant cellulite eraser, let’s first discuss what cellulite is and how it is formed.
Cellulite is formed by fat spreading unevenly to the surface of the skin, resulting in a dimple-like appearance on the skin. Most doctors tell cellulite sufferers to stay away from fatty foods, nicotine, and caffeine, and the cellulite should slowly go away. However, this is not always the case. Cellulite can stick around for years and years if one does not combine proper diet with adequate exercise.
Why the difference?
So if drinking caffeinated beverages causes cellulite, then how could rubbing caffeine-based skin cream be an instant cellulite eraser?
Drinking soda, coffee, and tea are known to possibly hamper blood circulation causing excess fat to rise to the surface of the skin. Skin creams with caffeine in them, on the other hand, applied directly to the area of the body containing cellulite, tighten blood vessels, thereby tightening the skin cells as well. This method is very effective as an instant cellulite eraser. However, though the manufacturers claim that the caffeine in the skin creams help flush out fat, toxins, and cellulite, no clinical studies have proven this truthful. Also, the reaction between caffeine and cellulite in this case is only temporary and does not provide a permanent solution.
Your next step in the fight against cellulite is to do a search for “caffeine-based skin cream” or “cellulite cream” using your favorite search engine and you will see the wide array of products available to you. After all, the best way to find out if caffeine-based skin creams work for you is to try some out for yourself!
