To look at me, you wouldn't think I had a problem with fat cells making that awful "cottage cheese" pattern on my thighs or rear. After all, I'm a petite 5'4" tall and weigh a healthy 115 pounds. But thanks to years of terrible eating habits, I have indeed built up a plethora of fat cells that create that highly recognizable, totally unattractive look whenever I sit down. I'll be the first to admit that it's disgusting, and there's little comfort in knowing that 90 percent of woman suffer from the same problem. All I'm interested in now is learning how to get rid of cellulite so I can enjoy swimsuits and summers again without hiding my thighs.
There are lots of theories about how to get rid of cellulite, but after searching the internet, I've come up with a handful that sound like the most effective and affordable alternatives. The first is changing my diet and exercise habits. No one wants to hear this, mostly because it amounts to a lot of hard work and is not a miracle cure. But reducing fat intake and engaging in regular aerobic activity such as walking, swimming, or jogging will help get rid of cellulite. My legs and rear will be toned and taut instead of dimpled, which of course is the goal.
Another way to get rid of cellulite is to visit a spa for special treatments. Spas have various massages, seaweed wraps, and body sculpting techniques that have been successful at improving the appearance of the skin in problem areas. Treatments range in price from $25 to $100 or more, so if as long as I stay on the lower side of the spectrum, I'll be able to remain within budget.
And finally, topical creams and skin brushing can also help get rid of cellulite. Creams work to hydrate the skin and keep it as healthy as possible, while skin brushing stimulates circulation and new cell growth, which is vital for that fresh-from-the-spa glow. Over time, these simple techniques can get rid of cellulite and leave me looking my absolute best.
I've checked out some before and after pictures of women who have tried these approaches, and I was quite impressed by how much better they looked after changing their lifestyles. Not everyone was able to get rid of cellulite altogether, of course, but the differences were immediately noticeable. If I can achieve even halfway decent results, I'll be thrilled!
If you want to eliminate those awful cottage cheese thighs, then I recommend investigating some of the options I've mentioned above. It's not easy to get rid of cellulite, but it can be done if you're persistent enough. All I can say is bring on the bikinis next summer!
