Dr Oz: Soma Underwear for Cellulite
Dr Oz waged war against Cellulite today and came up with a list called Dr Oz’s Secret Weapons To Fight Cellulite which included Kelp Seaweed Capsules, Aminophylline Cream, Retinol Cream and Non-Elastic Underwear like Soma Underwear or Spanx to prevent Cellulite. He also did another segment on Cellulite Caffeine Creams & Cellulite Massage Devices. In your 20’s you have fairly smooth skin, but by your 30’s you may start to see some dimpling and by your 40’s it may feel like Cellulite has taken over your body. In fact, 9 out of 10 women have some cellulite either on their thighs, buttocks, tummy or arms. Nobody likes this “cottage cheese” appearance as Cellulite invades your fat and never goes away.
Dr Oz: What Causes Cellulite?
Dr Oz said that Cellulite forms when pockets of fat push up against connective tissue. Women’s tissue is more porous than men’s and women also have thinner skin, which is why women tend to see more Cellulite than men. Doctor Oz was joined by Dr Rovenia Brock or Dr Ro who said that researchers and doctors are dedicating their lives to smoothing over the problem of Cellulite. There are some things that we can do to minimize the appearance of Cellulite, which is why they did this show today to teach us about Cellulite Remedies to minimize the appearance.
Dr Oz: Kelp Seaweed Capsules Fight Cellulite
Dr Oz’s first Cellulite Secret Weapon was Kelp, which is a type of seaweed that contains a secret ingredient called Fucoxanthin. Kelp has been used in Japan for ages, and scientists are now studying it more and more to learn about all of its potential health benefits. Fucoxanthin helps your body to burn the fat so that you do not get the dimpling in your skin that you see with Cellulite. You can purchase Kelp as either Dried Kelp or Kelp Capsules. You can also buy Kelp Strips, but Dr Ro said that you have to cut these up and pop them into boiling water to eat them. Dr Oz mentioned that this is used in miso soup in Japanese restaurants. You have to eat a lot of Kelp everyday to help with your Cellulite though, so it may be easiest to take a 300 mg Kelp Capsule daily.
Dr Rovenia Brock also said that you want to avoid sugar and salt, because these increase your Cellulite. You should limit yourself to no more than 6 tsp of sugar daily and no more than 200 mg of sodium. Also, eat lots of vegetables, because these help you to stay hydrated so that your skin will be plump and fuller and you will see less dimples in your skin.
Dr Oz: Aminophylline Cream for Cellulite
Dr Oz said that Aminophylline Cream is a new Cellulite Cream ingredient that actually works. Aminophylline Cream has a chemical compound that is found in inhalable Asthma drugs and it coverts fat into heat. Aminophylline Cream breaks down fat and Doctor Oz said that it is probably one of the best ingredients to look for in a Cellulite Cream. Dr Ro said that you must use it every day to see results and to smooth over your trouble areas. She also said that you should supercharge your Aminophylline Cream by supplementing it with Vitamin C taken orally. You always want to fortify your body with nutrients inside to supplement your topical treatments. Some great sources of Vitamin C include kiwis and strawberries.
Dr Oz: Retinol Cream for Cellulite
Dr Oz said that Retinol Creams are another great Cellulite fighter! Dr Ro said that Retinol is a type of Vitamin A that fights free radicals and breaks down healthy collagen while stimulating collagen production. You should apply Retinol Creams 1-3 times daily. If you think of your cellulite as a cake with dimples in it, and your skin is the icing, the Retinol Creams allow you to apply a thicker coat of icing so that you can cover up the dimpled areas better. Dr Rovenia Brock told Dr Oz that you should look for 100% Retinol with at least 100,000 IU of Vitamin A per 2 ounces.
Dr Oz: Soma Underwear & Spanx for Cellulite
Dr Oz’s final Cellulite Secret Weapon is to wear Non-Elastic Underwear. Elastic causes bulges and accentuates the cellulite, so you do not want elastic around the leg holes of your underwear. Dr Ro said that she loves Soma Underwear because it does not ride up or bundle, and there is no elastic around the edge. Soma Panties have a smooth vanishing edge, so I am sure that they also look amazing under pants because you won’t see a panty line! Another great product is to use Spanx in either the capri length or the full length because it applies an even pressure to smooth over the Cellulite. When you wear a skirt, you can try the above-the-knee Spanx, and when you wear pants, you can go with the ankle-length Spanx.
