There are many anti-cellulite and body firming products on the market today. But cellulite (also referred to as orange peel or dimpled skin) is a very difficult condition to treat. The American Academy of Dermatology
defines cellulite as a hormonally based condition unique to women. It is caused by a herniation or rupture of fat through the fibrous tissue and the subsequent pulling back of this tissue that creates dimpled areas.
As a cosmetic chemist who has formulated a few anti-cellulite products, I can attest to the fact that products on the market do not permanently get rid of cellulite. But some of them can somewhat reduce the look or appearance of it.
We recommend the following products on the market because they have clinical data that shows that they do provide some improvement in the look of cellulite as well as test results that show that they can firm and tone legs, thighs and butt areas.
