Cellulite- and Wrinkle-Zappers For the Body

By Erin Donnelly

Q. I’ve got plenty of wrinkle creams to keep my face looking young—but what about my body? What are some anti-aging body lotions that will help me firm up and ward off wrinkles? 
 
A. If you don’t have the money or the inclination to get a body overhaul at some Beverly Hills plastic surgeon’s office, anti-aging bodycare—supplemented with the occasional spa treatment like Endermologie—will help you look young and slim from head to toe.
 
Sound too good to be true? It’s not. Today’s body treatments are infused with advanced nutrients that provide intense moisture, boost the skin’s elasticity, and firm and tone the skin. Slimming ingredients like caffeine, meanwhile, break down fatty deposits and boost circulation, resulting in a sleeker, more cellulite-free appearance. Go on, eat that last cupcake.
 
Rub on these body helpers for a full body lift sans surgery.
 
Institut Esthederm Bio-Svelt Body Shaping Multi-Target Cream: Cellulite gets the heave-ho with this intensive cream, which uses caffeine, liposterol, and horse chestnut extract to break down fatty tissue.
