Default Cucumbers Combating Cellulite?

Has anyone heard of this? I stumbled on a link in the Recipe Archive # 2 and here's what the page says, among other things:

If you’re going somewhere warm and know that you’ll be lounging by the pool or beach in your suit, rub a few cucumber slices along spots of cellulite on your skin to make the cellulite less visible. Cucumbers have a photochemical makeup that causes collagen in your skin to tighten, so it’s not only good for cellulite, but also for reducing eye puffiness and wrinkles. Forget luxury body creams; cucumbers are where it’s at for travel gear that’s sure to preserve your beauty while you’re on the go.

I must needs to research this more!

I have heard of putting cucumbers on your eyes to reduce puffiness but never thought about rubbing them on my thighs.. lol

I also heard that putting cold slices of potato on your eyes also reduces under eye bags and circles.

Carol~ Downside of the potatoes, I swear i'd have a hard time not eating the rest of the darned thing I want to find out if the cellulite reduction is temporary, like doing sit-ups RIGHT before going out and it tones your tummy a bit for a few hours, but then it goes back to normal. Had such a busy day yesterday I didn't have time to research it, and now my list of "research this" is getting so long I had to make post-its!

Chloe-

My personal trainer told me a few tips a couple years ago. I will put this on my list to research. Just finished my research on the raspberry ketone situation so am going to try them for exactly ONE bottle. I'll keep an eye on my losses and see if they stay the same, get better or worse, and will strive to not change my eating habits at all...
