Last month’s Cellulite BOTM was written by a weight-training expert, so I thought this month we could select a book from the other end of the cellulite-guru spectrum.
Cherry Maslen and Linda Bird are British journalists with decades of experience writing and editing for various Women’s magazines in the UK. As you can imagine, they reviewed more than their fair share of cellulite treatments and products during that time.
While Bottoms Up! focused on weight training (with a hint of diet advice) for treating cellulite, Cherry and Linda’s approach runs the proverbial gamut. They cover everything from anti-cellulite creams and body wraps, to dry brushing and lipo.
They even include a chapter on those infamous cellulite knickers we’ve been hearing so much about. (After all, they are British.)
According to Cellulite Solutions, cellulite is essentially body fat. The only reason it looks different from other forms of fat is because the collagen fibers that attach the fat cells to the skin (septae) lost their elasticity. When a woman gains weight, which is usually in the butt and thighs, the fat cells swell and bulge out between the connective fibers.
“The truth is that cellulite is part of being a woman,” the authors lament. “There’s nothing disease-like about it.”
Chapter One starts with a reminder that fatness was once the epitomy of beauty, “just think of those Rubenesque lovelies, writhing about in the nude.” Yet despite their aversion to clothing, few (if any) of Rubens’s subjects seem to display the dreaded blight.
