If you’re looking to get one step ahead in banishing cellulite, here are a selection of our best hints and tips. They will help you to lose your cellulite and feel more confident this summer.

  1. There are different forms of cellulite. All cellulite isn’t the same! Noticing a firm, orange peel-like effect on your skin? This will be ‘Adipose’ cellulite. Contrastingly, Soft, fluid-like cellulite is known as ‘Oedematous’ cellulite. In contrast ‘Fibrotic’ cellulite is more compact while having a similar orange peel effect. 
  2. 95% of women have a form of cellulite on their bodies. Most women have cellulite on their bodies, even those who are ‘skinny’. Plus, cellulite runs in families. So if you suffer it, the chances are that some of your relatives will too. The good news is that there are many ways to reduce its appearance, which we explore below.
  3. Cellulite forms most in areas of inactivity. Cellulite develops mainly in areas of poor circulation and can be challenging to get rid of without exercise. Movements and skin warming exercises can help to increase circulation and break down fat tissues where stubborn cellulite won’t budge.
  4. Exercise helps reduce cellulite. Exercise not only helps improve circulation but also boosts metabolism. So you’re more likely to be able to shift cellulite with a regular routine rather than remaining sedentary. 
  5. Many ingredients can help reduce the appearance of cellulite. Keep an eye out for cellulite creams. They tend to contain a range of ingredients to rid your skin of stubborn cellulite. Just some of these ingredients include things like Centella Asiatica, Ginkgo Biloba and Methyl Nicotinate. 
  6. The best time to apply cellulite cream is after exercise. After exercising, cellulite creams tend to absorb into the skin better.
  7. Changes to diet can help with cellulite. Change your diet by consuming fewer processed or refined foods, or artificial foods that are high in sweeteners, additives and chemicals. Also, avoid foods high in fat or sugar as they can only make cellulite worse.
  8. Massage helps reduce the appearance of cellulite. Massage and skin movement can help improve circulation, which helps disperse fat if done regularly. Massage your skin towards the heart or give yourself an intense thigh massage for noticeable results.
  9. Sitting at a desk all day can make cellulite worse. Cellulite can be stubborn, particularly for those who sit for most of the day. This can make cellulite difficult to shift around the bum. Vary your routine by getting out of your seat as often as possible. Walk around the office every now and then. Or go and speak to a colleague rather than sending an e-mail.
  10. Cellulite can be controlled with lifestyle changes. Although dieting to some degree can help reduce cellulite, hardcore diets tend not to work for this purpose. Also, remember that hormones and a slow metabolism can cause cellulite.
