Welcome to Day 2 of the 30-Day Cellulite Challenge in which I attempt to get rid of my cellulite, and we all spend a couple of minutes a day contemplating the current state of my rump. After I announced this groundbreaking experiment yesterday, several of you made comments along the lines of, as meredith806 put it, “Pics or it didn’t happen.” Keep reading »
So, a while back, I wrote a post about how I was going to attempt to get rid of my cellulite, and let you all know what happened. In the interim, though, life got in the way. My butt wasn’t my primary focus; other things were. Now, I’ve got plenty of time to think about my rear-end. For the next 30 days, I’m going to be using Karin Herzog anti-cellulite cream to see if it really gets rid of cellulite, and I’ll be blogging all the while. After the jump, Day 1. Keep reading »
A while ago, we ran a post about a cellulite cream that a blogger at StyleList tried that she said works. After that, Karin Herzog, the company that makes the product, got in touch and asked if I wanted to give it a try myself. Get rid of my cellulite? Sure! I guess I’d say my cellulite situation is about “average.” I’ve got some on the backs of my thighs and on my butt. Can a skin cream get rid of my cellulite? I am dubious. Yet, I’ll keep an open mind while I try their Silhouette and Tonus B12 creams for a month. I can’t promise that I’ll post before and after shots of my butt (which is probably for the best, really), but I will let you know in 30 days if my rear end has more or less cellulite. [Karin Herzog] Karin Herzog sent me two free tubes of anti-cellulite creams, but my 30-day cellulite status report will be 100% influence-free. Keep reading »
When you hear that a certain not-yet-available-in-America skincare line is how famous English roses like Victoria Beckham and Kylie Minogue — along with in-the-know and often on-the-beach celebrities like Jennifer Aniston, Renée Zellweger — keep their cellulite under control, even the most jaded beauty editor snaps to attention.
When you hear it’s how 51-year-old Madonna helps keep her muscle tone as taut as someone half her age, you start slathering it on, fast and furious. Read more … Keep reading »
Everyone hates cellulite, which explains why the market for products that claim to rid your body of those unsightly spots is so saturated. But the sad truth is that while you can buy a million creams, it’s really exercise and genetics that determine just how affected you’ll be. The latest company to create an anti-cellulite product is Advantage Organic, which boasts a pair of undergarments made of neem oil, basil leaves, and pure silver. Neem is used in Indian skincare products to ease irritations, and claims to reduce cellulite on your body. So far, the design comes in a t-shirt and shorts, but the company is working on a line of lingerie for the Western world. Just how thongs will change the appearance of your thighs, though, is beyond me. [Telegraph] Keep reading »
It was kind of refreshing when Kim Kardashian posed for Life & Style and the photos weren’t airbrushed, following her Complex photoshopping scandal. In her L&S interview, Kim was all, “I have cellulite, so what!” and “I love my body the way it is.” This makes her just-announced project a bit hypocritical. According to a press release from Nivea, Kim is partaking in Nivea’s “Good-bye Cellulite, Hello Bikini Challenge,” a four-week holistic program that includes using Nivea’s Good-bye Cellulite Gel-Cream and Patches to reduce the appearance of cellulite. Kim, we thought you had accepted your cellulite. What gives? [Nivea] Keep reading »
This weekend, when I was in Atlantic City, one of my fellow ragers asked me if she could borrow my tweezers so she could pluck a nipple hair. A nipple hair? She had nipple hair? “Yeah, don’t you?” I honestly didn’t know. She also said she waxed above her lip. Crap, I’ve never waxed my lip. Have I been walking around with a ‘stache for years and no one has ever told me and that’s why I can’t get a rebound to save my life right now?!
On last nights episode of “The Hills” the female ‘stache came back to haunt me — Lauren Conrad had a very obvious dusting of facial fuzz about her lip. If Lauren Conrad has a mustache I must have it too. This morning, the grooming obsession continued when I discovered a horrendous ingrown hair bump, um, you know where. Eww. Maybe I should start listening to the lady mags and actually wax from now on. Especially since I am about to jump back into the dating pool — with that in mind, I decided to ask the dudes on my IM about what they look for, grooming-wise, in a bed mate. I didn’t tell them about my ingrown hair though. I’m hoping it’s gone by the time I sleep with any of them. Keep reading »
Call me obsessed with cellulite, but it’s certainly the bain of my existence — especially as we head into bikini season. I live up six flights of stairs and I still have it. Nothing can stop the indomitable dimples. I’m convinced cellulite and cockroaches are the two things that would survive an apocalypse. While I think the popular paparazzi shots of skinny starlets’ cottage cheese — like these of Mischa Barton — are cruel, I am so relieved that twigs have it too! My body finally has something in common with the likes of Cindy Crawford. It’s such good news, it’s the cover of The National Enquirer this week. I’m sure they think they’re being mean, but really, it’s about time someone spoke up about this natural phenomenon instead of just airbrushing it aside. (Perhaps this is even the first time the trash mag has shown the truth?) Maybe together, we women can make cellulite the new black! OK, that might be overdoing it. The cellulite poster girl Jennifer Love Hewitt was just named Sexiest Woman on Television, so there’s hope. [Dlisted]

While on vacation in Hawaii with her fiancÃ©e, a bikini clad Jennifer Love Hewitt got her cellulite snapped by paparazzi and then ridiculed on the internet by sites like TMZ and Perez Hilton. Jennifer â€œjust call me more to Loveâ€ Hewitt has fought back by openly admitting to liking her body and encouraging other woman to â€œput on a bikini â€” put it on and stay strong.â€ Hey, maybe she can Lance-ify this tragedy with a new Bikini Strong rubber bracelet. Thatâ€™s something we can all get behind, even if it takes our itty-bitty bathing suits a few more months to come out for beach weather. Keep reading »
