It’s true that more body fat can increase the appearance, but it’s not the cause. You don’t have to be fat or overweight to get cellulite. Skinny or thin girls are also affected by this condition.

For example, Diet, slow metabolism, hormone changes and dehydration will make cellulite more noticeable.
Can You Get Rid of Cellulite Without Surgery?
Liposuction is the most commonly known form of cellulite reduction, but do you really need to go to those extremes?
There is no such thing as 100% safe surgery no matter how routine the procedure is. It’s important to try less invasive techniques before resorting to surgery.
You don’t have to have surgery, you can try to get rid of cellulite at home first. There are effective techniques you can do at home to reduce the appearance of cellulite.
One of my favorite and least the expensive is using a dry brush to break apart cellulite.
By massaging the skin with a dry brush you can reduce cellulite, exfoliate the skin and ease stress.

What Type of Dry Brush Works For Cellulite?
First it’s important to use the right Dry Brush for Cellulite. The usual dry skin brush won’t work well for cellulite.
You don’t want a brush that’s made of bristles, or only bristles. The brush should have bristle that are like tiny fingers.
Regular bristle will not provide enough force to break apart the fat cells.
How To: Dry Brushing Cellulite
Dry brushing is easy and only takes a few minutes to do. You don’t have to do it everyday, but the more often, the sooner you will start to see results.
The most important part is to brush before you shower, not after and always brush toward your heart, not away.
Brushing away will increase pressure in your veins and may cause bruising.
Here are some tips:
- Brush towards your heart
- Start with your feet and work up
- Focus on cellulite areas
- Move in a clockwise motion
- Try to include your whole body, increasing overall blood flow
- Shower after, not before
- Moisturize after you shower
- Five to ten minutes is all you need
By dry brushing cellulite, you can really start to see some results right away. But they will be more noticeable after a week.
If your cellulite is really dense it may take more time, but you can definitely reduce its visibility.
