Is cellulite normal? This video gives you more information on the facts and myths about cellulite.
What Causes Cellulite?
- Poor diet
- Fad dieting
- Slow metabolism
- Lack of physical activity
- Hormone changes

Cellulite tends to be less noticeable on darker skin.
If you have light skin and plan to be out in a bathing suit or shorts, applying a self-tanner may make the bumps and dimples on your thighs less noticeable.
The most effective way to get rid of cellulite is through exercising. Be aware that this is a high intensity workout, so if you are just starting with this thighs & bum challenge, begin with less reps at first and build up slowly. This workout will breakdown and burn the fat off that’s causing cellulite. Do this workout 2-3 times weekly on alternate days for best results.
