How To Camouflage Your Cellulite At The Beach

Last updated by Katie M.

You were well on your way. You were holding on, motivated by the idea of finally having a bikini body this year. But then the lockdowns and the laziness all hit you at once... That’s right, your cellulite is still there and not ready to leave just yet. But guess what?! Cellulite is like a little pimple, either we own it, or we resort to using tricks to camouflage it.

How to hide your cellulite when you’re in a bathing suit

Although it’s not exactly a great fact, cellulite is 100% girly and a girl’s problem at that. In fact, 9 out of 10 women have cellulite, compared to 1 out of 50 men. In fact, the female body contains twice as many fat cells than a male’s, and these are naturally stored in the body in anticipation of pregnancy and breastfeeding. Cellulite is natural, but it’s true that nowadays, with the influence of social media and the pressure to look like a goddess, it is often frowned upon.

1. Use self-tanner and shimmering oil

Self-tanner not only gives our skin a nice, sun-kissed glow, but also an even skin tone, which makes cellulite much less visible. The self-tanner acts as a foundation that blurs orange peel skin and gives the illusion of toned and smooth skin. As for the oil, it moisturizes and enhances our body. By pearlizing the skin, it reflects the light and helps camouflage cellulite.

2. Strike a pose

If you find it hard to deal with your cellulite in a bathing suit, you can make sure you stay lying on your towel. In fact, you should avoid standing cross-legged, for example. This position compresses the thighs and the stomach, so cellulite will immediately come out.

3. Choose the right bathing suit

The best trick to camouflage your cellulite at the beach is to tie a sarong around your waist, but frankly, it's not the best. Try to choose the right swimsuit instead. If you have cellulite on your hips and stomach, choose a one-piece swimsuit. If it's more in the thighs and buttocks, you can go for a shorty shape.

➡ If cellulite is a real problem for you, you can make proactive changes by modifying a few of your daily habits. When it comes to your diet, replace sugar and saturated fats with fiber and protein. As for your workouts, choose endurance sports such as walking, running or cycling, which will also improve blood circulation. Water sports are also very effective for building up the lower body.

The editor's opinion: Enjoy it and nothing else!

Cellulite, fat rolls, breasts that are too small, too big, stretch marks, strange toes... We all have a little something that makes us uncomfortable at the beach! And you know what? We shouldn’t care! We go to the beach or the pool to ENJOY ourselves and nothing else. It's not a small mark of cellulite that will prevent you from enjoying the warm sand! And if this cellulite is so complexing that it prevents you from putting on a bathing suit, you need to start accepting yourself for who you are.
