InStyle.co.uk’s feature ‘7 Life Hacks To Get Rid Of Cellulite’ looks at what we can do about the troublesome condition so many of us – women in particular – struggle with.
As the article explains, cellulite is extremely common, affecting an estimated 80-95% of women. It is notoriously difficult to deal with.
“Here’s the science bit: cellulite is actually the result of irregular pockets sitting in the subcutaneous fats that connect your muscle and bone rather than fat itself.”
This means that creams, brushing and even weight loss aren’t necessarily going to shift the problem. It’s more to do with genetics, hormones, lifestyle and gender – as women’s collagen and skin are different to men’s and more prone to cellulite.

“Get Your Burpee On. Moving around will help to shift fluid retention, which will in turn reduce the appearance of cellulite, advises Dr Ross Perry from Cosmedics. Also, try lying down with your legs raised against a wall after a long day at the office to counteract the effect of time spent sitting at your desk – and reduce the appearance of thigh dimples by draining excess fluid.”
“Yep: we’re onto the fun stuff – manually pummelling skin is not only relaxing, but it also really does help to shift the pockets of excess fluid that make up cellulite. A good massage has the ancillary benefit of oxygenating your blood, which helps to up your glow and make skin look all-round better.”
