Even if you can manage to follow the example set by more and more people to accept your cellulite, that doesn’t mean you will like it. And if there is one place on our bodies where we don’t like to see cellulite the most, it’s our bums.
Why You Don’t Like Cellulite on Your Buttocks
What’s one of the first things you look at in the mirror when you try on a new outfit? You spin around and check your butt. Small, medium or large, your butt is sort of prominent, so cellulite’s orange peel skin may look worse there than anywhere else.
3 Ways to Reduce Cellulite on Your Buttocks
First, you know by now that there is no way to completely get rid of cellulite. Over 90 percent of women and more than a few men have cellulite to some extent. There are many things you can do, like losing weight and eating a healthier diet, that will help make your cellulite less noticeable. That said, there are some ways to help reduce cellulite’s unmistakable cottage cheese appearance specifically on your buttocks.
Don’t Sit for Extended Periods - Sitting in the same position for a long time can reduce the circulation in your butt. That blood flow brings healthy nutrients and oxygen that keeps your skin and its connective tissue strong. And it helps fight the effects of cellulite.
Use a Dry Brush - Massaging the skin is another great way to boost your circulation. Dry brushing affected areas a few times a week will help. These anti-cellulite shorts and leggings also massage your skin as you wear them.
- Tone Your Butt - Any exercise can reduce body fat everywhere on your body. But exercises focused on toning butt muscles will also help the skin above those muscles look smoother. Squats, lunges, and activities that use your legs, like hiking and bike riding, are great for toning your rear too.
