Cellulite is fat that collects just under the surface of the skin, and causes a dimply appearance. It appears most often on the hips, thighs and buttocks.
Here are suggestions to help prevent cellulite, courtesy of the U.S. National Library of Medicine:
* Include plenty of fruits, vegetables and fiber in your diet.
* Drink plenty of fluids to keep your body well-hydrated.
* Maintain good muscle tone and strong bones with regular exercise.
* Try to stay at a healthy body weight, and avoid frequently gaining and losing weight.
* Don’t smoke.
