The good news is that I’ve got a few tips and tricks up my sleeve to help you conceal the appearance of bum cellulite, as well as some tips and tricks for getting rid of it in the long term. So put that tiny bikini back into your shopping bag and get stuck into this article!

So, what is bum cellulite, and why do I have It?

Bum cellulite is just like any other form of cellulite – it’s caused by fat deposits under the skin, and these fat deposits create a dimply, often wobbly, appearance on our bodies. While cellulite might be wrongly associated with weight gain or a lack of physical fitness, bum cellulite is not a reflection of your health, wellbeing, nor a sign that you need to lose weight. Around 90% of women suffer from cellulite at some point in their lives, even the top athletes!

The truth is, women are simply more predisposed to cellulite than men; on average, women’s bodies contain higher body fat percentages than their male counterparts. This explains why we rarely see anti-cellulite products targeted at men, promising them a dimple-free peach with just one cream or gel.

How To Get Rid of Bum Cellulite: The Short Way

If you’re looking for some quick-fix solutions and want to feel good about yourself and your body – no matter how many dimples you have on your bum – I hear you! While there are no short term quick fixes to actually removing cellulite from the body, you can try your hand at these short-term options for concealing its appearance and gaining a quick body-confidence boost:

Anti-Cellulite Leggings

If you’re feeling self-conscious about fellow gym-goers seeing your cellulite while you’re working out, I highly recommend investing in a pair of anti-cellulite leggings. These leggings are unlike your traditional stretchy, see-through leggings; anti-cellulite leggings come with a dual-density fabric that not only covers up dimples but gives your bum a boost too! The honeycomb pattern gives your hips, bum, and thighs some volume while disguising any pesky cellulite at the same time.

Shapewear

If you’re wearing a skin-tight dress and worried about your cellulite being visible through the fabric, some high-quality shapewear should smooth out your silhouette and conceal any visible cellulite! While most forms of cellulite won’t be visible through most types of clothing material, shapewear can give you that little confidence boost that you need to wear the outfit that you want.

Can Surgery Help Cellulite?

While there are medical procedures that can help to improve the appearance of existing cellulite, using plastic surgery to counter your dimpled bum is not a battle that you’re going to win. First of all, our bodies and weight fluctuate all the time – especially if you’re a woman going through life changes such as pregnancy or weight loss. These fluctuations in weight mean that no anti-cellulite treatment would ever be permanent – you’d spend a fortune going back for top-up treatments.

However, if by surgery you mean a BBL (a Brazilian Butt Lift), the reality is that a BBL can actually give you more cellulite, not improve it. A BBL uses fat deposits from other parts of the body and inserts them into the buttocks – a recipe for cellulite and a super dangerous procedure at that!

How To Get Rid of Bum Cellulite: The Long Way

If you’re interested in improving the appearance of cellulite and looking for a long-term solution, exercise, lifestyle changes, and diet can all make a difference in the appearance of cellulite. While nothing can eliminate it completely, incorporating certain habits and lifestyle changes into your daily routine will make a noticeable difference to the appearance of cellulite.

Eat Clean and focus on fat loss

Your diet should be your very first port of call if you want to reduce the appearance of cellulite. While it might sound cliché, having a good diet remains important when it comes to improving the appearance of cellulite. You want to pack your diet with foods full of antioxidants and vitamins while avoiding fast foods, excess sugar, and ultra-processed foods.

Lift Weights

If you want to hide those fat deposits on the bum – or at least make them less visible – the best way to do so is by lifting weights. Exercise on its own is great for your health and your body, but when it comes to filling out the skin and concealing those dimply, wobbly bits of cellulite, strength training with weights is the best idea. Not only will you improve the appearance of cellulite, but you’ll also create a more lifted, toned bum at the same time – win-win! Lifting weights 2-3 times a week and focusing on your glutes is a great way to diminish cellulite and enhance your booty.

Dry Body Exfoliation

While it might sound obvious or overly simple, exfoliating can improve the appearance of cellulite. It all depends on how you do it: dry body brushing is a recommended method of exfoliation for cellulite because it helps improve lymphatic flow, increases blood flow, and increases skin radiance. Some claim that the improved lymphatic flow helps to reduce the appearance of cellulite temporarily, and can have long-lasting benefits if done every day. Even if it doesn’t completely conceal your cellulite, dry body brushing improves skin texture and radiance, so why not give it a go?
