A female’s perception of her own body image is a delicate subject. Even if you eat healthily and work out regularly, we can still manage to find a flaw with our bodies and ourselves.
In addition to being women, we are Americans, and Americans love a quick fix for any and every problem we may encounter. Because of this combination, the body toning product industry is booming.
Multiple companies have released firming and cellulite control creams, but are they actually worth the hype? Honestly, on their own, you can’t expect for a ‘miracle in a jar’ type product to work.
In some instances, yes, products can be helpful. Take eye creams for example, they’re not only encouraged, but recommended to be used, but cellulite creams, not so much.
Companies even know this. Clarins’s new Body Lift Cellulite Control product is careful to say that the product will only work in conjunction with a good exercise program and a healthy diet.
Okay, so is the product even doing anything? If the company itself is telling you to eat healthy and work out or else their product won’t work, I’m pretty sure that it’s the exercising and diet that’s doing all of the work then.
Be careful not to rely solely on products for body toning, and do your extensive research before investing any money in products.
