Exercise cellulite into submission

Exercise is remarkably effective in taming cellulite. Combining a good cellulite lotion, vigilant moisturizing, and exercise can make your legs and thighs look fabulous. So don’t bemoan not having money to toss away on pricey mechanical treatments at a salon, just get down to it. 

 
Remember, massage helps break down cellulite, and you can do it yourself. Be sure to spend at least two to three minutes kneading and twisting the offending areas as you apply a nightly moisturizer or cellulite lotion. This site that gives excellent instructions on massage: http://www.massageforailments.com/anti-cellulite-massage.php
 
To exercise your cellulite away, try walking, tennis, or intense yoga, or a Pilate’s class. Choose any activity that uses your legs. Squats, plies, and leg lifts can work more quickly than you can imagine.
 
Callanetics, developed by Callan Pinckney in the 1970s, remains one of the most effective cellulite busters, according to mavens. It has devotees around the world. Ms. Pinckney still looks fabulous. She remains her own best salesperson. Callanetics uses small intense muscle movements to reshape the body. The moves are similar to those recommended by top experts in spas. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MJbFRQHzFtg. For more information about Callanetics http://callanetics.com/index.php
 
If you are a more active type with no patience for mat work-outs and micro movements, try Hemalayaa’s Bollywood Booty for a fun workout that will target and tone hips and thighs. http://acaciacatalog.com/product.asp?pn=51618&name=Hemalayaa:+Bollywood+Booty&bhcd2=1241387751
 
If broken blood vessels and other small imperfections mar your legs, use a gradual self-tanner to mask imperfections –then forget about it! We like Jergen’s Natural Glow, Olay Body Quench with Touch of Sun, and Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Natural Bronze. These are all moisturizers with just a small amount of self tanner. It takes a few days for your bronze glow to appear, but you don’t have to worry about streaks or an even application, as you do with self-tanners. Do exfoliate your legs before you use one. And wash your palms afterwards. They are painless, inexpensive, and foolproof — and your legs will look flawless with little expense or effort.
