In the advent of the modern times, we have welcomed many new medical technologies that claim to solve numerous health and cosmetic problems, and one of these is anticellulite technology. With this kind of discovery, we now have learned to deal with various health and cosmetic concerns easily and in less time. Now, let us take a closer look at how anticellulite creams fare against the traditional exercise.
First, let is clarify the basics. Both creams and exercises are considered solutions to the problem of cellulite. It is just that the two solutions differ in how they solve the problem of these fatty pockets that lay beneath the skin’s surface.
Creams and Exercises
Anticellulite creams work simply because of what they contain – ingredients that can do wonders for the skin cells and tissues, thus, giving you less dimpled skin on the surface. For example, a popular anticellulite cream that is sought after by many in the market today contains two important ingredients – retinol A and caffeine. Retinol A, a vitamin A derivative helps promote healthier and more supple skin tissues. Caffeine, on the other hand, helps increase the flow of blood which in turn reduce cellulite appearance on the surface. These two ingredients are mostly found in many modern anticellulite formulations like creams, ointments and lotions.
Looking at the second option, exercise remains to be on the top list of people who are serious about doing away with their cellulite problems. There are specific exercises that aim to tighten the skin as well as its pores. There are exercises that aim to burn the excess fats just below the skin’s surface, thus, also eliminating cellulite fatty pockets. For many, exercise will always be on the list of effective anticellulite solutions.
The Pros and Cons
Of course, any suggested solution has its pros and cons. It is the same with the anticellulite methods we have mentioned above.
As for creams that fight against cellulite, its top advantage is that it can reduce or even eliminate cellulite without subjecting the person to any physical effort. The person simply applies the cream over the cellulite-affected area and changes can be expected in a few weeks’ time. Exercise on the other hand requires the person to exert physical effort so determination must be present to start, maintain and continue the anticellulite exercise program.
Cellulite creams are often costly. Each tube of cream must be bought and it is quite common that a person purchase more than one tube or bottle to achieve the desired results. Exercises, on the other hand, are totally free. You do not need to spend a penny to do exercises and to reduce your cellulite.
The pros and cons mentioned above are just a few points to mull over when comparing anticellulite creams and exercises. To sum it up, it can be said that creams that fight the appearance of cellulite are practical for those who want an easy and convenient solution to the problem. However, the person must be willing to spend for it as these creams do not come free. Anticellulite exercise, however, can be done by any person as long as he or she is willing to put in time and sweat out a little but can be impractical for those who seek convenience and ease.
