Cellulite is one beauty woe that can affect anyone – no matter what size you are. Even Beyoncé indulged in a bit of photoshopping the other day, which we can only assume was an attempt cover up a bit of cellulite.

While it would be one heck of a job to make sure your legs are 100% cellulite free, there are things you can do to reduce it.

Cut out salt
Salt is cellulite's BFF. It may make everything that much tastier, but it makes your body retain water, aswell as toxins, which cause cellulite. You can replace your normal table salt with Himalayan sea salt as it’s natural and aids in hydration and metabolism.

Purely losing weight won’t help you get rid of cellulite, but toning up will. Cellulite looks worse as muscles decrease and get further away from the connective tissue, so by building muscle and keeping it tight and lean, you can combat the dreaded ‘orange peel’ look. You’ll also be reducing fat and sweating out all those toxins too.

Brushing the skin
By investing in a body brush, and using it every time you’re in the shower, you’ll be stimulating the lymphatic system and aiding the elimination of toxins. Brush in circular motions on any areas with cellulite for about a minute to start with (as the brushes can be a bit rough and may cause sensitivity). When you get used to it, brush for a few minutes at a time.

Cellulite is caused by toxins, so a good detox goes a long way in helping to get rid of it. Try to eat more alkaline foods such as root vegetables, leafy greens, lemons, garlic and cayenne peppers. These foods attract out old acidic waste from your body, and improve the appearance of your skin.

Drink more water
Is there anything that drinking more water can’t help? Try to drink a glass of water in the morning rather than your tea or coffee as it speeds up your metabolism and gets rid of those toxins first thing. 



Whether you’re curvy or slim, no woman is safe from cellulite. Cellulite is fat beneath your skin and looks bumpy because it is pushes against connective tissue. It is not harmful but most ladies don’t think it is particularly nice to look at.

Here are top tips to get rid of the dreaded orange peel

Use a body scrub
To remove or decrease cellulite you need to get the blood flowing underneath. A body brush rubbed towards your heart will help to break it up.

Get moving
Cellulite forms in the areas with the least amount of circulation so get moving to increase blood circulation.

Get up off your bum
If your job requires you to sit on your bum all day make sure you take some time out to get up and move around. Sitting around all day is not good for your bum.

Use products after exercise
The best time to use cellulite cream is after exercise so wait until then for the ultimate effect.



Unlike women, men aren’t particularly good when it comes to details. Whether you’ve worn a pair of shoes a thousand times or not, he just won’t notice. So if he doesn’t compliment you on your new highlights, don’t hold it against him – he’s just being a man.

Here are some of the things you shouldn’t get mad about:

Shaved/unshaved pins
Unless your legs look anything like Big Foot’s, he isn’t going to notice a bit of stubble.

New shoes
As far as he’s concerned, all shoes are the same. As are bags, jeans and coats.

That’s far too detailed for him or any other man. They just don’t see what we do.

A new shade of lipstick
It’s almost like all your efforts of finding that new shade has gone right out the window, right? Red is red in his books.

No make-up
Don’t look so shocked, sometimes they don’t notice you have no make-up on your face. So if you’re planning to stay the night, don’t worry about taking off your paint, it really doesn’t make a difference to him.
