Are slimming products truly an effective alternative to laser treatments or surgery?

1. Cosmetic products: a gentler approach

It goes without saying that slimming products are a less radical way of fighting cellulite compared to liposuction, tummy tucks, or laser treatments. But they are gentler on the skin and body, and are less invasive.

2. Choosing the right product for you

For a slimming product to work, you need to choose the right one based on the kind of cellulite you have. There are three types: adipose cellulite, linked to excess fat; fibrous cellulite, due to the overproduction of collagen fibers; and aqueous cellulite, triggered by excess water retained in the skin's tissue. Some slimming products may only be designed to target a specific type of cellulite. If this is the case, the product in question will only work on that one specific type, and you may not achieve the results you're hoping for. One good solution is Body Fit, Clarins' very own personal trainer in a bottle. This anti-cellulite cream-gel is effective on all types of cellulite, whether aqueous, fibrous, or adipose, thanks to its combination of plant extracts (quince leaf, celosia, baccharis, organic water mint, and blue button flower). Day after day, this gel-cream firms and sculpts the body, leaving skin smoother and softer than ever.

3. Boost the effects of your anti-cellulite product

Give the Body Fit anti-cellulite gel cream a helping hand by applying it via a targeted massage. The combination of slimming product and self-massaging will help trim down your figure in no time. You'll need to repeat the process several times every day. Clarins has developed a specific three-step self-massage technique for applying Body Fit: reduce bloating in the calves and thighs, trim down excess volume caused by cellulite by encouraging the elimination of retained water, and slim down the hips and backside by stimulating the body's natural lymphatic draining processes. An effective, in-depth anti-cellulite treatment for a flawless figure.

4. Work on your lifestyle

Whether you choose surgery or a slimming product, get your lifestyle up to speed. If you don't get into the habit of a healthy diet and regular exercise, your slimming results won't last - whether you choose liposuction or anti-cellulite creams.
