I don't believe there are any creams or pills or magic wraps that work against cellulite. Maybe treatments exist that diminish the appearance for 24 hours but nothing that makes it go away. I do, however, believe that using a cream regularly can help make the area look more flattering. If you rub a cream in every night in circular motions, you are increasing the blood flow and circulation to the area. A few years ago I used a cream by Nivea that I really think helped my legs look smoother. I rubbed it in pretty hard every day. I think it took about 4 weeks and I noticed a difference. I bought it the other day and used it this morning. Its called Nivea Reshaping Treatment. It comes in a tub, not a bottle. It is on the thick side but it glides on very easily. I try to let it air dry for a bit but it doesn't absorb fully. I wish I could test it on one leg and see if it really works. But I am not crazy, why would I risk having one leg look worse than the other? I'll let you know how it goes.


  1. I may have to try that.. I feel like my legs always look better whenever I have a little color on them (real or fake, although typically fake because I don't really tan).

  2. Its not a self-tanner, its like a firming cream. It has no color to it.

  3. I think I'm going to have to try that! And I agree- cellulite always looks better tan than white! But after all of our weddings-we won't even have cellulite right? :)
