Truth: Simply losing weight will not eliminate your cellulite. Rodriguez says women of all shapes and sizes struggle with cellulite. To give yourself the best odds of beating the bulge, she suggests getting fit and living an active, healthy lifestyle.

“Gradually reducing overall fat, increasing muscle mass, drinking plenty of wate, and eating healthy is the way to go,” says Rodriguez. “It’s an inexpensive method that doesn’t waste your time. By doing what works to get rid of cellulite, you’ll also achieve other health benefits.”

Myth: Cellulite is simply a physical problem.

Truth: Cellulite can affect more than your appearance. Getting your mind on board can help solve your cellulite dilemma. Rodriguez urges you to keep the following in mind if cellulite seems to be putting a damper on your summer fun.

  • Accept that cellulite is just fat.
  • Think about factors such as age, gender, and heredity that may play a bigger role in your cellulite struggle.
  • Learn how to best lose weight and tone your muscles so you can reduce cellulite in a direct manner.

“Once you’re living a healthy lifestyle, you won’t care so much about the tiny imperfections,” says Rodriguez. “Continue living a healthy, active lifestyle and don’t let cellulite rain on your summer parade.”
