It is important to remember that cellulite is not related to being overweight. Average and thin people also get cellulite.
The exacta cause of cellulite is not yet known. Cellulite is an elegant name for collections of fat beneath your skin. This causes the surface of the skin to dimple and look lumpy. It is commonly found on the thighs, stomach, and butt.
No matter what the cause is, if you have cellulite, chances are you want to get rid of it. American women spend hundreds of millions of dollars each year on various products hoping to rid themselves of those ugly skin dimples.
Here are three exercises that will help you eliminate cellulite without spending a lot of money. Lying on your side, do ten repetitions of each of the following exercises:
- Bring your knees forward; your hips should be at a 90 degree angle. Straighten your top leg out in front of you; you should uphold the 90 degree hip placement. Lift the top leg slowly up around 3 feet off the ground and then lower.
