Just what title says really . I'm after some anti cellulite cream which actually works and it would be best if you can use them once a day ,not twice . Did any of you naice mumsnetters have any good results ? Did you used just cream or in conjunction with diet and exercise?

cellulite cream does not work. sorry. save your money and spend it on something else.

cellulite is subcutaneous fat - no cream is ever going to help.

Sorry. No cream is going to shift it!

Cream will be beneficial to firm the skin up if massaged in properly using a proper technique, as will dry skin brushing upwards towards the heart. However to improve cellulite it's got to be done with exercise and good diet, plenty of water, fruit and veg, cutting out alcohol, fizzy drinks, sugar.

It's my summer project grin I've used Nivea, sanctuary and clarins when more flush. Also Dior svelte. The creams really only improve the appearance of the skin though, rather than getting rid of the cellulite underneath. Fake tan helps with appearance whilst working on it though! (And I'm sure I got a fake tan with firming in it last year can't remember the name, but it would be one of the main ones in boots/ supermarkets Nivea, garner etc).

I got rid of most of my cellulite with running and circuit training. That's why skinny people can get cellulite, if it's not toned it can appear

Body brushing has definite effect on mine when I can be arsed to do it Good strong brush strokes upwards before showering is a great way to start the day and I saw a marked improvement on dimples and the overall condition of my skin (did my upper arms too). I need to take my own advice and get back into the habit!

you can improve the condition of your skin with body brushing, exfoliating and moisturiser but not actually treat the cellulite. As others have said, exercise will help but actually its largely genetic as to how you store the fat on your body.
