Skin-smoothing tips to disguise dimpled imperfections.
Oh, cellulite. Why do you exist? It’s safe to say everyone wants to banish cellulite from their body. So, what is it anyway? The unwelcome dimples are fat cells found underneath the top layer of skin that have squeezed between bands of connective tissue (or collagen). It’s genetic and likely linked to circulation, so if your mom has cellulite then you’re susceptible to it too.
Since there’s no cure for cellulite, the best thing to do is accept it and then take action. We have a plan – the C’s of Cellulite: Control, Correct, Conceal.
Eating well plays a huge role in keeping cellulite in check. Fiber, whole grain foods, fruits and vegetables (lots of greens!) are key. These foods battle cellulite-causing toxins—a huge culprit. Some specific must-eats? Try asparagus (it contains anti-inflammatory properties), oranges (helps with blood circulation), berries (rich in antioxidants), fish oils (aids fat metabolizing) and spinach (good for collagen production)…to name a few!
Also extremely important? Drink as much water as you can. H2O helps your skin in more ways than one, including in your body’s natural detox process and improving elasticity. And lastly, don’t forget that fundamentally cellulite is fat. Keeping off excess weight, exercising and toning are direct ways to keep cellulite at bay.
Use beauty products, exfoliations (look for caffeine as an ingredient) and body massagers that help stimulate circulation, break up fluids beneath your skin and more.

When in doubt, reach for self-tanner. A quick spray tan equals instant camouflage. Many types of skin-smoothening shapewear are also designed to reduce the visibility of skin perfections by helping to smooth the silhouette of your legs, arms or buttocks.
