  1. Mine happened when I became estrogen dominant. Get your hormones in check. Optimal testosterone levels will help it go away

  2. So if 90% of women have cellulite and It’s almost impossible to get rid of unless you’re a celebrity Why are we so hard on ourselves about it ? We need to love ourselves and not bring others down for things we can not control.

  3. the WIZKER Brush Cures Razor Bumps & Ingrown Hairs

    THE 10 COMMANDMENTS PREVENTING OF INGROWN HAIRS:

    1. THOU SHALT NOT PASS!
    Too many quick passes with the blade. One pass per hairy area – going 1-2 inches downward at a time – will prevent ingrown hairs. Always shave like you might cause damage, not like your mowing the front yard lawn.

    2. HONOR THY DELICATE SKIN!
    Too many blades! If you are prone to ingrown hairs then you don’t need 3 or more blades.

    3. THOU SHALT NOT PRESS!
    Pressing too hard on the skin with the blade. A gliding, light touch is all you need. This is likely your biggest issue. So follow #4

    4. DO NOT TAKE PREP TIME IN VAIN!
    You should be using a warm/hot water prep (5 mins). Then leave the shaving creme on for more than 3 minutes to really soften the hair. The hair stubble should literally fall away with little or no pressure at all. Pressing hard is the problem! Be gentle ya’ll.

    5. THOU SHALT NOT USE DIRTY BLADES!
    Using a blade that’s been used way too many times. Yes, this one may be obvious, but be sure to keep your used tools as clean as possible. Soap and rubbing alcohol will destroy bacteria.

    6. THOU SHALT NOT CLOG!
    Use of skin/pore clogging cremes or lotions. These keep hairs from growing up. After a shave, keep your skin bare; let the tiny army breath, and allow those newly shaved, really small, microscopic hairs to grow out just in time for the next shave.

    7. REMEMBER TO EXFOLIATE!
    Not enough exfoliation to remove excess layers of skin. Use a skin care brush for razor bumps as directed. Brushes also tease the hairs away from entering the skin.

    8. THOU SHALT NOT COMMIT OVER SHAVING!
    Shaving too many times. This rule is hard to follow especially if you have to shave for your career but if you are prone to ingrowns, try shaving with an electric clipper. The results are not super close but no one but you will know the difference. Ladies, try waxing.

    9. THOU SHALT NOT GO AGAINST THE GRAIN!
    Shaving against the grain. Shave in the direction of hair growth (usually down, but perform a face map to be sure).

    10. KEEP THE SKIN FREE!
    Avoid tight fitting clothing around the Adam’s apple (neck) and/or below the waistline region.

  4. I use a combination of Dry Brushing, Nivea Cellulite Gel, cocoa butter/coffee/coconut oil body scrub, and Nivea Moisturizer. I am constantly asked what I use to keep my skin looking smooth, young, glowing and healthy. That’s it! I lost 143 pounds 17 years ago and have been using this system from the beginning to keep my skin tight. I’m here to say that this works…try it!

    I dry brush my entire body twice a day and notice that my thighs especially looks more glowy and smoother looking.

  6. I have struggled with cellulite since I was a teenager, now 40yrs old. I was never very overweight but am short and feel like I have big legs. front of my leg from knee up had a lot of cellulite. I bought a $10 dry body brush and started body brushing faithfully at night and used that nivea cellulite gel afterwards and within few days I was amazed and could no longer see any cellulite. it comes back when you stop by I start doing it every late spring so my legs look good for summer shorts and skirts. I’m too lazy to do year around but think if I did it would make big difference

  7. Katie • Correct. Another one of those facts about men and women having different biological makeup. The reason on why cellulite is not common in men is because they have more testosterone and thus have more muscle mass. And is women have more estrogen which causes us to have for body fat than men this causing cellulite more common in women. And at the same time is ironic because as women, we are thought to reject and stigmatize body fat in order to have a “perfect” body. It’s like us women trying to reject our own essence of being women and our own biological makeup. I don’t get it.

  8. Thats not necessarily true. Lack of movement causes cellulite. So you need to exercise. My cousin has PCOS and thats a testosterone overload yet she still has cellulite on her bum and thighs. Cut out sugar from your diet.

  9. kind of true, back in 2003 i did exercises for my butt, legs and hips, and what i did was when i was laying down or sitting down i contracted my muscles while watching tv and kept doing it until i felt like hot like i just worked out. i did it every night, at a point it became a habit and in time i did not see the cellulite anymore. of course years later after i stopped and was a little sedentary it came back but i know what to do to get rid of the appearance. no dimples at all.

  10. Nivea skin toning and firming gel works wonders,, definitely recommend. helps tighten the skin! 🙂

  11. Tracee Johnson

    The lady said “I could feel the cellulite dripping off! ” You can tell she didn’t even believe her own lie as she was telling it!

  12. Thanks for making a realistic video showcasing these machines. Unfortunately, too many people think that these machines replace exercise and diet, which they of course, do not…they have to be supplemental. It’s very easy to fill these fat cells back up after undergoing the treatment if there are no lifestyle changes

  13. I first heard about the dry brushing on Poosh and decided to try it and was surprised that it really was a temporary fix for cellulite. So if heading 2 the beach dry brush legs prior to heading out and u will notice the difference.

    derma rolling is good for helping creams and lotions get deeper into the skin, also brings micro holes to make blood bring good things to heal the skin

  15. Sheambitious29 Lachelle

    Smh and not only that the more weight you have on you the more cellulite you have and there is no way it’s reduced when your still obese

  16. I have cellulite in my knees, and I feel like am the only one that has cellulite there. I don’t even know how I got cellulite there since I was only 12 when they first showed up, and I was a skinny 12-year-old.

  17. Also cellulite can form from processed foods, & alcohol. I had hardly any, & I hurt my body through water fasting & abusing the fasting by breaking it with litres of alcohol, I was in a really bad place, & this broke down everything in my body, collagen, muscle, kidney’s, liver, immunity, hello inflammation, over a course of just 5 months, & WHAM hello cellulite from head to toe, & stretch marks on basically a very healthy slim body…ironically due to severe shyness, I’d hid my body for years! & than I did that. Now, I was in complete hiding. I get what they say about cellulite, body fat, muscle but if you eat crap, & don’t take care of yourself in exercise, & proper hydration..I was a dancer for 12.5 years, the body just won’t be the same. As we age, we change & so must our self care. Balance is key & not every Body is the same.

  18. Same but it gone with panthenol 2% cream for 1 week 2 time daily and i have stretch marks but with very white skin is not problem with me

  19. Oh same! I have them in my knees and they appeared when I was in my early teens. But I’m skinny too and underweight even until now.

  20. Elizabeth Chwakanowski

    How on earth is a topical cream going to eliminate the fibrous bands way beyond the skin surface?! Get real

  21. I use a dermaroller on my skin and my scars and it really does work. For cellulite however… It is way too deep to affect cellulite IMO maybe one day I will try.
    Creams, lotions etc DO NPT WORK, not one of them, this is a fact. Losing weight helps in reducing the ammount of cellulite but it’s still there.
    The only thing that worked for me and that mkaes swnse to me is cupping, also iy is extremely cheap. You need to use oil so that the cups can move, so using the suction their create you are stretching your fascia and it really does make a massive difference. The cons are that in when you start using it it will hurt, you will get bruises all over your legs and your cellulite will look even more pronounced, however as you keep doing it you can feel your fascia stretch and as it stretches you will stop bruising and hurting and then your cellulite will look better than ever, it is also doing a lymphatic drainage so your legs won’t feel like you have edema in them anymore. The sad part is that fascia tends to go back to its previous form so if you stop cupping your cellulite will come back and you will have yo ho through all the pain and bruising again.
    Aome people like to use fascia rollers or the fasciablaster combined with cupping, the basis for this is thta theey believe the fascia gets tight bc it gets like knotted so those devices help break it/ detangle it.

    Personally I don’t believe thta and have seen no studies about it but Im sure using them a little will improve your bloodflow so as long as you don’t spend much time and money on it I guess it won’t harm…..

  22. Sure but that only affects the outer layer of your skin no the cellulite. However it is very good for beautifil and healthy skin since it exfoliates and helps blood flow so its definitely better than nothing!

    U are not alone hunney i have them too on my knees its even making them bigger even on my legs buttocks i feel so ashamed i wish i knew something to reduce them

  24. I was confident with my body until my boyfriend pointed at my thighs and asked me why it was wrinkly. I didn’t know what he’s talking about until I saw my cellulites. I lost my confidence since then.

  25. Hello
    Do you massage the area like using the cupp in circular or upwoad motions or just sucking the skin? How often do you do it?

  26. i’d say let him know that his comment made u feel bad about urself. if he still continues to point out these things and brings u down, dump him.

  27. @Hunni Bunni i don’t think he was trying to be mean, he’s just ignorant. But they definitely should let him know they’re not comfortable with it

  28. Because it exists in 90% of women does not mean we have to like it. If there is some way for me to safely reduce the appearance of something that I am uncomfortable with let me be. The last thing we need is self-righteous judgment for trying to improve or reduce the appearance something WE ALL wish we did not have.

  29. The dermaroller really really works and it works on acne scars and uplifts face skin and loose skin all together.

  30. Let’s just be honest it’s ugly. That said there is a treatment that you can get called Celafina. I found about out about it on a different video comment section on YouTube. It’s far more accessible at around $3500-$6500 per treatment and it lasts about 3 years.

  31. I just came across this sounds interesting and actually really good I like the fact using natural products coconut oil and The caffeine from the coffee grounds it’s actually very very good for you i’ve struggled with cellulite and stretch marks for so many years I have lost weight I am still on my journey and the more weight I lose the saggier my skin looks I wonder if I would be able to do something similar for under my neck I have that horrible turkey neck!! Horrible!!! would love to know your exact routine thank you so so much

  32. Is it just regular sugar you whip it with and what type of brush can I order just a natural bristle brush would do?

  33. My arms my legs and my neck so embarrassing especially my legs and my neck I am very very self-conscious of it

  34. @Cindy Alexis I use whatever I have on hand and the cheapest…white granulated sugar is sufficient.

  35. ícҽís թհօҽղíx

    @Katiri not true I move and walk EVERYDAY and I have cellulite I ordered celluaid

    @Moonlit Balcony to be honest a modestly dressed woman with skirts loose trousers is more appealing. It’s rarer nowadays.
