I recently went to dinner with an old high school friend I had reconnected with over Facebook. As often seems to happen with me, the conversation eventually turned to the subject of cellulite (would you expect anything less from your trusty cellulite analyst?).
A few years back, my friend frequented a particular tanning salon. One day, she was paying for her session as another customer was leaving. This particular customer had legs so flawless, my friend couldn’t help but notice them. Not an ounce of cellulite!
After the woman left, the salon owner told my friend the secret to her client’s stunning legs. How did she keep them in such good shape? She used a rolling pin! This woman woke up each morning and ran a rolling pin over her legs to keep them vibrant and healthy.
I have to admit, after I heard this story I was quick to track down my rolling pin and test it out. The rolling felt surprisingly good on the cellulite regions, much better than those little massagers on the back of some body brushes.
Has anyone else heard of the rolling pin treatment for cellulite? Do you think it’s worth a try?
UPDATE: Read this post about treating cellulite in the gym to learn why I think rolling pins are a useful part of an effective anti-cellulite strategy. They are basically a mini foam roller, which therapists and physical trainers have been using for years to improve circulation (a classic cause of cellulite formation).
Thanks for stopping by The Cellulite Investigation. Things are a little quite around here at the moment. I’m taking an extended break as I get married and settle into married life and a new home. Don’t worry, I’ll be back soon!
