Cellulite is the bane of every woman. Although you may see glossy photos of supermodels with perfectly smooth legs, the truth is that almost all of them have at least a little cellulite hiding somewhere. I mean completely removing your cellulite is wishful thinking for most women.
The key is learning how to hide your cellulite when wearing shorts and skirts so you can feel sexy and confident.
Use the tricks below to say goodbye to cellulite and hello to short shorts.
Sunless Tanner is Your Best Friend
Sunless tanning lotions can help you hide those lumps and dimples by darkening the skin and drawing attention to other areas of your legs. To ensure the product applies evenly, start out by applying a thin layer of tanner only to cellulite-ridden areas of your legs. Follow up by misting your legs with a sunless tanning spray.
Pantyhose have both a slimming and smoothing effect that will make your cellulite less obvious. Try a pair of black pantyhose when wearing denim or leather shorts for a trendy look. Nude pantyhose will create a more natural look.
Coffee Grind Scrub
Many women swear by the coffee grind scrub. This simple scrub is easy to make and costs you nothing but a pot of coffee. Using the leftover grinds from your morning cup of joe, add just enough water to create a thick paste. Apply the paste to areas of your legs where cellulite is most visible and wrap the area in plastic wrap for 15 minutes. The caffeine in the coffee is what helps get rid of the cellulite, while the grinds act as an exfoliator to remove dead skin. You can also find speciallty coffee scrubs online with extra cellulite reducing goodies.
Bronze Your Legs
Rather than trying to mask your cellulite, why not draw attention away from it? Apply a light, shimmery bronzer down the front of your legs. This will attract light to the front of your legs and make cellulite far less obvious.
Hiding cellulite may be a temporary fix, but it will give you the confidence boost you need to rock your favorite pair of shorts. For a long-term cellulite treatment, try incorporating more strength-building exercises into your daily routine and say good-bye to those dimples for good.
