With the temperatures heating up, many of us are getting ready to swap our opaque tights for bare legs. But cellulite can be a massive insecurity for many pf us, preventing us from showing off our legs as the weather gets warmer. You're never going to get rid of cellulite completely – it's a natural part of being a woman – but there are several products on the market that smooth the skin and make dimples look a little less noticeable.
There are a number of clever products available which smooth the skin and make dimples less obvious
One of the most purse-friendly cellulite products out there is the Nivea Body Goodbye Cellulite Gel Cream. This product combines natural lotus extract with the skin's own L-Carnitine and aims to deliver results, smoothing and toning the skin, within just two weeks of use. The budget-busting price also means you can splash out on a few tubes of this to get ready for an upcoming holiday without worrying about breaking the bank.

Soap & Glory also have a result-driven option in The Firminator. The clever formula contains a “killer combination of actives” to help keep orange peel skin at bay. And, as an added bonus, there is also an arm-targeted lotion in the same range. So if you're less-than-happy about that area of your body too, you can invest in them both and see your confidence soar in a matter of weeks.
Etat Pur's Caffeine 5 per cent is another popular product. As its name suggests, the main ingredient in this is caffeine, which targets fat cells and therefore has a significant impact on cellulite. Most users notice that their skin is firmer and cellulite is reduced after a few weeks of regular application. However, the bottle doesn't contain a huge amount in it, so if you have a larger area to cover, you might be better going for a less expensive product.
Another option is to simply embrace your imperfections, and be safe in the knowledge that 9 in every 10 women suffer from orange peel skin on areas such as their thighs and bottom. Kim Kardashian recently flaunted her dimpled behind on her Mexican break and looked sexier than ever doing so. We'll have what you're having, Kim!
