There are many people who would like to get rid of cellulite. Many women of all ages have cellulite on their stomach, buttocks or legs. Cellulite occurs when fat cells bulge through the outer layer of the skin, creating a rutted, dimpled appearance. In this article we will show you how to reduce the appearance of cellulite with skincare products, lifestyle changes and special treatments. Without further due, here are 8 steps to get rid of cellulite.

1. Understand it

If your mother has cellulite, chances are you do too. For example, bumpy skin is caused when fat presses up against the vertical connective tissue which surrounds fat cells in your thighs. This creates a bulging of the cells, which results in a dimpled effect. However, there are ways to minimize its appearance, even if cellulite runs in your family.

2. Healthy diet

In order to keep the signs of cellulite at bay, it is important to have a healthy diet. Eat a lot of whole grain foods, such as oat cereals, and fiber, since they help to remove waste and toxins from the intestinal tract, as well as vegetables and fruits. It is also important to drink plenty of water. Your body will begin to shed its excess fat, if you increase your daily intake of water, including the fat stored as cellulite. In addition, the water will also help strengthen the collagen in your skin, which helps to reduce the lumpy look.

3. Exercise

Excess weight can contribute to cellulite, since it is fat. That is why it is important to engage in physical exercise, such as swimming, yoga, jogging, walking, etc., a few times a week.

4. Massage the trouble spot

By massaging your trouble spot you will stimulate circulation, and also break up fluids beneath your skin, leaving a more even appearance. A product called Bliss Fat Girl Soap also exfoliates away dead cells and contains caffeine to help tighten your skin. It costs about $18.

5. Use an exfoliator

In addition to massage, spring for a caffeine-filled body scrub and pay special attention to your area of concern. A ground coffee exfoliant, such as Sea Salt, Two Coffee, Body One Lump, Tubinado, or B3 Barista Bath promises to break up fatty deposits as you massage it into your skin. It also hydrates and plumps your skin with avocado oil, and tightens it up with caffeine.

6. Smooth on a serum

Use a serum, such as Nivea Skin Firming Cellulite Serum with Q10, to blast cellulite. When used daily, this ultra-concentrated formula with lotus leaf extract, Coenzyme Q10, and L-Carnitine helps reduce the signs of dimpling in as little at 10 days.

7. Wear slimming workout gear

Form-fitting clothes can highlight cellulite. However, if you are working out, you can minimize the look of dimpling with slimming workout gear, such as Proskins Slim Cycle Shorts. They provide an instant slimming effect and they are also infused with ingredients, such as vitamin E, caffeine, and retinol, which help hydrate and tighten skin, leaving your legs looking less lumpy after you take them off.

8. Use self-tanner

There is no cure for cellulite, but you can still camouflage it. The quickest fix to camouflage lumpy skin is self-tanner. In order to disguise your dimples in a flash, slather on St. Tropez Self Tan Bronzing Mousse.
