5 Ways You Can Make Cellulite Look Less Noticeable Today
Cellulite is one of the most common aesthetic conditions for women, affecting approximately 98% of women. According to dermatologists, it is caused by fibrous bands that connect muscles to the skin. When fat deposits push against the skin, it creates a bulging, wavy effect -- aka, cellulite. And no, it doesn't only affect women who are overweight.
While the skin condition may be related to fat cells, anyone of any size can experience butt and thigh dimples.
As great as cellulite creams, squats, and laser treatments may be for reducing the appearance of cellulite, you need to be consistent in order to see noticeable results.
If you want to make your orange peel look less visible today, here are five quick tricks for reducing its appearance in a flash.
Exfoliating your lumpy parts won't get rid of cellulite altogether, but it will minimize its appearance. And it's definitely worth incorporating into your daily skincare routine to keep your skin smooth and glowing. Plus, it'll make those lush skincare products of yours work A LOT harder.
Exfoliation sloughs away dead skin cells, oil, and product buildup to reveal fresh, soft, and radiant skin underneath. It's an excellent way to improve skin texture.
If you have sensitive skin, swap body scrubs for chemical exfoliants like alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) which tend to be gentler on the skin. Some of the most common AHAs include lactic acid and glycolic acid. And they can help make your skin look and feel instantly smoother.
You'll find exfoliating glycolic acid + collagen-boosting bakuchiol in Rainbow's Glow Body Mask. While glycolic dissolves dead cells on the surface of the skin, bakuchiol (a very gentle retinol alternative) stimulates collagen production for plumper, firmer skin.
Moisturizing your skin can instantly make it look smoother, softer, and firmer. Look for a lotion made with nourishing ingredients such as coconut oil, hyaluronic acid, glycerin, and antioxidants. These will help plump up the skin and make it appear smoother.
Rainbow's Hydrate Butter is a great choice if you're looking for a way to improve the appearance and texture of your skin. Made with coconut and vanilla, these two ingredients work in tandem to moisturize, smooth, heal, and protect skin. Slather it on your lumpy areas instantly to make skin appear fresher, brighter, and smoother.
Of course, it won't make that cottage cheese appearance fade altogether, but it will give your skin a little boost.

- Dry Brush
Dry brushing can be very effective for addressing cellulite and fading its appearance. That's because it's a form of lymphatic massage that can boost blood flow and circulation, which has a positive effect on the skin condition. Plus, it can boost your overall wellness.
Using a body brush, massage the affected areas in circular motions for several minutes before taking a shower. For best results, do this 2-3 times a week or every day if possible.
To make things smoother and more comfortable for you, you can use an oil, lathered up body cleanser, or moisturizer when massaging the area. Alternatively, use it in the shower with wet bristles if dry brushing is too harsh on your skin. For sensitive skin types especially, it may be too aggressive.
- Self Tan
Self-tanner is a great trick for blurring the appearance of cellulite. This obviously isn't a permanent fix, but it's definitely convenient if you want to conceal your cellulite quickly and effectively. Just make sure you apply it properly otherwise you could end up drawing more attention to your lumpy parts if things are patchy and streaky. Nevertheless, it's an ingenious trick for making things smoother!
