No matter how skinny you are, there is a chance that you may have cellulite on some random part of your body. We know we definitely do.

Simply put, every woman – regardless of size, diet or even fitness levels – has the possibility of having some kind of cellulite at some point in her life.

So instead of fretting about it, and wrapping yourself up in swathes of cloth, understanding the problem and finding the right solution to target it may be more helpful in ridding yourself of it in the long run.

Cellulite, is excess fat beneath a person’s skin which causes the surface of the skin to appear dimply and unsightly when said fat is pushed against the tissues under one’s skin.

As you put on more weight, fat cells in your body multiply and expand in size, resulting in even more “pushing” against the skin, thus giving rise to the “orange-peel” effect.


The latest Clarins’ Body Lift Cellulite Control aims to bust cellulite formation by disrupting the cellulite-formation cycle through the use of key plant ingredients namely aquatic mint and celosia extracts.

The Aquatic mint extract limits the multiplication of fat cells and stimulates collagen production for firmer skin, whereas the Celosia extract stops the production of fat cells.

When these ingredients are combined, they help slow down the expansion of fat cells and prevent the formation of cellulite at the source.

The formulation also contains escin which is obtained from horse chestnut and it works to encourage microcirculation, while sunflower phospholipids, hazelnut oil and glycerine, nourish and moisturises the skin, giving it a satiny-smooth finish.


The cream-gel texture of the Body Lift Cellulite Control is also highly refreshing while it’s absorbed by the skin almost immediately. It acts like a “tightening” veil which helps to refine the texture of the skin.

The best time to use it? Apply it in the morning right after your shower and massage in an upward direction from your ankle towards your waist to boost microcirculation.

So if you’ve been trying to get rid of your cellulite for the longest time, give this a go, and you may be pleasantly surprised.

The Clarins Body Lift Cellulite Control, $88, is available at all Clarins counters.
