Women of all ages can fall prey to those unsightly bumps. Here's what you can do
Q. Yikes! All of a sudden I see that my thighs are getting kind of bumpy. What can I do to smooth them out again? I'm in my late 30's and never thought I'd get cellulite so young!
A. Cellulite doesn't discriminate. It can show up on girls in their teens--or younger. That's because, despite what you've heard about cellulite being some mysterious condition linked to "trapped toxins" or poor circulation, cellulite is simply old-fashioned fat. It just looks different because of how it's arranged.
Everyone has strands of connective tissue that separate fat cells into compartments and connect fat to skin. In women, these fibers form a honeycomb-shaped pattern, so any increase of fat tends to bulge out like stuffing in a mattress. You see less cellulite in men because their fibers run horizontally, forming a criss-cross pattern that prevents bulging or dimpling.
Though cellulite can pop up any time, it is true that cellulite does seem to appear out of nowhere and get worse with age. That's because our tissues change. Those strands of connective tissue thicken with age, and our skin gets thinner, making cellulite more noticeable. More importantly, we gain fat with age. The average woman loses 5 lb of muscle and replaces it with about 15 lb of fat every decade of her adult life, says Prevention advisor Wayne Westcott, PhD.
"Because fat is exceptionally soft, it doesn't keep our skin taut like muscle does. It also takes up more space, so it bulges out," he explains.
With the right exercise plan, you can reduce your cellulite and make your lower body look smoother and firmer, says Westcott. "When we put 16 women ages 26 to 66 on our program for 8 weeks, all of them reported less cellulite in their lower bodies. Seventy percent reported a lot less."
The trick is working all your lower body muscles from every angle, reducing the underlying fat stores and replacing lost muscle tissue to give the area a taut, toned appearance throughout.
Perform 1 set of 10 to 15 repetitions of the following exercises 3 days a week. Lift slowly, counting 2 seconds to lift and 4 seconds to lower. Before starting, warm up thoroughly with walking, stationary cycling, or light calisthenics.

Not sure how far one is willing to go to remove the cellulite but I saw an episode of Dr. 90210 with Dr. Manus removing cellulite from a patient.

But the esthatician said that I got great results and the Bliss products were helping! She went out and bought it for herself bc it is cheaper than the stuff you can buy at the spa.
Here is the link:

It is also available at Sephora. I like the stimulator... it is a little rubber brush thing that I use to rub on my thighs in the shower. Massage is known to reduce cellulite so this is cheaper than getting regular massages. Then I use the Fatgirlslim. I also started using their under eye cream and LOVE it for reducing dark circles and puffiness.
Working out and drinking water helps the most!!! But cheating is good when you are wearing a bathing suit.
