You can get rid of cellulite
Ah, if only there was a way to get rid of those pesky dimples. But unfortunately, nothing can be done to permanently eliminate cellulite. Not even liposuction! And believe it or not, cellulite has nothing to do with weight. You can be fat or thin and have cellulite. Your genes are pretty much what determine if you will or will not have them. The good news is there are temporary fixes and ways to reduce its appearance. Try a firming cream, like Bliss Fatgirlslim ($36), that contains ingredients like caffeine to help tighten and smooth the skin. Cellulite brushes also help to reduce the appearance of cellulite as they work to increase blood circulation which temporarily smoothes the look of spongy skin. Try Sephora Collection Cellulite Massager ($16).
