Why Bazaar’s beauty director swears by Endermologie
BY KATY YOUNG | AUG 10, 2018
Tell someone that you work in beauty, and you will usually be met by one of three responses: What’s the best face cream? Does Crème de la Mer work? And, finally is there a cure for cellulite?
Firstly I couldn’t possibly name just one cream. Yes, Crème de la Mer works, but there is better for cheaper. As for the third, have you tried Endermologie?
In case you hadn’t heard, cellulite is a skin issue, not a weight issue. Case in point, those incredibly slim models with that orange-peel skin, and women carrying extra weight with porcelain-smooth thighs.
The cellulite you can see is caused by a weakening in the mesh network of connective tissue and collagen fibres, thereby allowing fat cells to protrude through and show themselves to the world like marbles in a net bag.
What that means for the 90 per cent of us who have it, is that diets don’t work. Frustratingly, no treatment has even been proven by scientific research either.
So for now I, and the other nine out of 10 women who suffer with cellulite, have to navigate our way around dozens of procedures on a bit of a hope and prayer.
There are all sorts of sound waves, cling film wraps, lasers, as well as chemical and carbon dioxide needles, touting themselves as smooth-talking remedy for lumpy, bumpy skin on our thighs and derrieres. And then there is Endermologie, which just makes old-fashioned, non-intrusive, non-aggressive sense to me.
