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.
Should I be embarrassed about cellulite?
Today, the trend is to accept things, I want to say "finally"! We can finally accept that we are all perfectly imperfect, yet we are beautiful and strong women, with our qualities and our scars. Sport allows us every day to take back our bodies, understand them, and love them... But I don't think that acceptance should lead to resignation. Indeed, there are things that do not depend on us and our will... On the other hand, it is always possible to improve these small details that contribute to happiness! One step at a time, don't remain a spectator in your life, and become a real actress! There is no magic formula to getting rid of the charming "orange peel", so, why not stop worrying about it, and instead embrace it? You can decide not to worry about it at all, and at the same time make a beautiful arm of honor to the current diktats of beauty, or set up an anti-capital routine to try to dislodge the fat or water as much as possible.
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.
🤗 Understand yourself, accept yourself, be happy... Let’s do it here and now!
