Adonia LegTone™ serum claims to cure cellulite in 9 minutes. That sounds too good to be true. Women have been praying for this breakthrough for centuries, could it now be a reality?
According to the latest feedback on the internet, it really works. Hurrah!
The catch? It’s not cheap at over $107 for a 60-day supply and is yet to hit Australian shores. Even then, the cellulite fighting product seems to sell out faster than it can be restocked — it sold out in 7 days after its launch in March this year.
So for now, let’s put away our credit cards and review the facts. According to the makers of Adonia’s LegTone™, the product uses the latest Greek plant stem cell technology combined with 23 organic Greek botanicals to tone weak skin cells. In clinical trials, it demonstrated a 47 percent decrease in the appearance of cellulite within 9 minutes. After 6 weeks, there was a 72 percent decrease.
But what if you don’t have a spare $107? Well there’s also:
Magic anti-cellulite shorts:
Women on Amazon.com are raving about the Delfin Spa Bio Ceramic Anti-Cellulite Shorts. The manufacturers swear these shorts reduce cellulite and water and toxin retention using far infrared rays. Combined with regular exercise, these shorts are said to break down cellulite cells, improve circulation and revitalise tissue. The only complaint from one Amazon reviewer was they were too expensive (one pair retails at around $44).
Cheaper cellulite cures:
If $44 is in the outer limits of your budget, don’t fret. There are cheaper cures still, as well as simple strategies to conceal cellulite. On the hit Australian TV show, 10 Years Younger In 10 Days, grooming expert Will Fennell used Sally Hansen’s Airbrush Legs (only $24.95) to disguise cellulite and veins on contestant Julie’s legs. Before this quick-fix treatment, Julie was afraid to wear a skirt, but this reasonably priced, readily available product gave her pins to be proud of.
Experts believe that you don’t need expensive cream or devices. In an article in The Age newspaper, dermatologist Anne Hundgeburth said, “lots of exercise, a proper diet that includes a lot of fruits and vegetables, carbohydrates that metabolise quickly, little fat and sufficient fluids are the most effective measures against cellulite. These steps will increase circulation in the connective tissue, reduce waste deposits and shrink fat cells.”
Massaging and dry brushing the skin regularly is also said to work wonders. According to the Natural Therapy Pages, dry brushing has the following benefits:
- removes cellulite
- cleanses the lymphatic system
- removes dead skin
- tightens the skin
- stimulates circulation
- increases cell renewal
- stimulates the hormones and oil-producing glands
So whatever your budget, there’s a cellulite remedy available. Personally, I’m keeping my eyes firmly on the 9-minute remedy, Adonia LegTone™. Hopefully a friend buys a bottle and I can steal a drop or two (probably worth $5!).
