Cellulite is one of the most annoying things women have to deal with. It doesn’t matter what size you wear or what body shape you are. It doesn’t matter how old you are either as it can affect you at any age.
What is cellulite?
Cellulite is that fat tissue usually around the hips and thighs. It tends to be lumpy in structure skin and because of that its visible at any angle when you’re trying to rock your bikini, new lingerie or simply shorts or dress.
Why do we have it?
It can occur due to factors like:
uneven fat distribution, hormonal disbalance, genetics, a higher level of insulin, prolonged inactivity or excess body fat.
drink at least 2 litres a day+ extra 400ml for every hour of exercise (don’t account teas and coffees just pure water)
high protein, low in salt, plenty veg and low-fat dairy like low-fat yoghurt, Skyr or Quark. Products like these included in your diet will help to minimise cellulite.
If your cellulite is an effect of excess body weight you will need a calorie deficit to lose extra pounds. ( to make sure you’re eating right calories for healthy weight loss check out my free macro calculator.

Any exercise that will activate your muscle tissue and stimulate circulation in the problematic zone will help. Developing some muscle will also smooth this area up and will help burn excess of fat stored under your skin.
Regular lower-body weight training will make a huge improvement.
My favourite exercises:

4.Dry brushes and massage
Regular massages and dry brushing helps the circulation and can help smooth up your skin.
5.Avoid sugar, caffeine, alcohol and smoking
All these break down or affect collagen in your skin. Collagen is responsible for tightness and elasticity ( youth ) of your skin. Lack of collagen can make cellulite even more visible.
