5 Common Misconceptions About How To Get Rid Of Cellulite

Cellulite is in fact a very common physical condition that affects women and is constantly being talked about in fitness magazines, blogs, and forums. Pretty much everywhere you look there are companies selling different methods of cellulite reduction. This includes everything from lotions and creams, scrub brushes, laser, surgery, and many more.

This can often lead women to question the validity of many common methods of how to get rid of cellulite.

Furthermore, a lot of women want to know that the methods they are using are all-natural, as opposed to doing more invasive procedures such as surgery, lasers, and applying medicinal creams.

Here are 5 misconceptions and myths regarding cellulite reduction:

1. Cellulite creams, potions, and lotions are the best treatment option. This is not true, once you understand what cellulite actually is. Creams and gels that can be applied to the skin only help the skin and blood flow, as opposed to the muscle fibers that are affected.

2. Cellulite is Genetic. This is also false. Yes, some women who have cellulite will have daughters that have cellulite. However, many women with cellulite will have mothers that do not have cellulite, and vice versa. The truth is that many of these women have not found a sure-fire method of how to get rid of cellulite - so it is easier to make excuses and blame their family history!

3. The best way to remove cellulite is by visiting a med spa or surgical center. Since many women do not have the patience to see the proper treatment through from start to finish, many are looking for a fast fix. But just like with other medical surgeries, unless you change the habits, the problem will usually come back. Plus, surgery is very invasive and has many side effects including scarring and saggy skin issues.

4. I'm too old to get rid of my cellulite. Many women, regardless of age, have the ability to minimize and eliminate cellulite. As long as the proper movements and exercises are done, the results can be experienced by women of all ages.

5. Exercise just doesn't work! Hold on there, ladies! YES, exercise does work - IF you are doing the right exercises. In fact, most women do not know the correct exercises to do to help get rid of cellulite. Not to mention that many fitness instructors do not much about these exercise methods either!
