iVillage: Getting Rid of Cellulite: What Works -- and What Doesn't


Next time you consider an anti-cellulite gel, cream or other topical product, look at the ingredients. Most likely caffeine -- a known diuretic -- is on the list. Murad explains that in an area of weakened circulation where cellulite tends to appear, extra fluid can build up. "Caffeine helps minimize the fluid, but does not relieve the problem of fat migrating to the surface," he says. "Caffeine can help, but only on a temporary basis." Murad says when picking a topical treatment, find one that contains capsaicin (the active component of chili peppers): "It encourages circulation to the area, so look for that in products."
