Cellulite is one of the most difficult things to get rid of in your weight loss program. There are several miracle treatments and creams available, but they actually do not help in hiding your dimpled thighs, hips or arms. Cellulite is mainly caused due to immense fat deposits in specific areas of the body ( thighs, hips, arms) which actually distort the connective tissues of the skin. Cellulite looks ugly and appears like an ‘orange peel’. There are a few exercises which are known to help in getting rid of cellulite. Try these for yourself and understand how effective they are.
