Cellulite on my thighs really stresses me out! I never, never wear anything above my knee as I can't stand the way my legs look. There's so much pressure on looking 'perfect' here (Italy), I am ashamed of showing my legs off really. This article gives me some food for thought anyway!
Thanks for this article and for stressing that cellulite is mostly genetic and not a health problem. It amazes me how many people still think that cellulite is just a sign of being overweight or unhealthy, or lazy and that somehow if you have it it's "your own fault" (it's often those lucky people that don't suffer from it and want to give themselves a pat on the back that say this!). Obviously anything that encourages us to work out and eat well is good news, but thank you for writing an honest article rather than promising the impossible! Hopefully people feel better about themselves after reading this.

DRY SKIN BRUSHING! Some health food stores sell them; look for a big wooden brush with a long handle to get the hard to reach places and hard all natural bristles. Use it all over your body; rub in circle motions until your skin goes cherry red, but concentrate in problem areas (butt, thighs, abdominal) It will hurt a bit at first but if you do this BEFORE every shower it will help with cellulite, It takes about 5 minutes to do head to toe but I swear it will help with cellulite as well as you will glow and be so smooth. I am constantly being told i have the smoothest skin.
Well darn. I guess I'm stuck living with it! Thanks for the great article!

Cellulite unfortunately runs in my family big time. It is the one thing about my body that I'm really embarrassed about. I won't wear shorts or skirts shorter than my knee. Thanks for the informative article. Guess I need to learn to deal with it!
