with Founder and Medical Director of Cosmedics Skin Clinics’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. 

cellulite treatmentAs 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.


7 Cellulite Tips suggests 7 cellulite tips – number 2 is courtesy of Dr Ross Perry

  1. Body brushing – this should be daily, before a shower
  2. Exercise – say:

    “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.”

  3. Alternate blasts of hot/cold water in the shower can boost circulation
  4. Avoid sugar, salt and alcohol, which all contribute to cellulite
  5. Get a massage. say:

    “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.”

    Cosmedics’ Putney Beauty Salon offers full body massage with their team of trained therapists. A good massage can boost circulation as well as concentrate on trouble-spots like cellulite

  6. Book treatments before events to shift excess fluid and oxygenate the blood
  7. Try a home massage/serum roller tool to firm legs and drain fluid
