Cellulite is not dangerous for health, but it can be visually disturbing. Many women are affected by it – whether young or old, thin or fat. This is due to the nature of their skin and connective tissue: compared to men’s skin, the female epidermis is thinner, and the underlying dermis is more flexible. In addition, the fat cells in the subcutaneous tissue of women are larger and there are more of these adipocytes. In addition, women’s connective tissue consists of fine strands that run perpendicular and parallel to the surface of the skin. These connective tissue strands easily yield to the pressure of the fat chambers in which the fat cells are located. This creates the typical golf ball pattern on the surface of the skin. As if that were not enough, the effects of the female sex hormone estrogen are added. This causes fat to accumulate, especially on the thighs, hips, abdomen and buttocks – in other words, exactly where dimples can become easily visible. Many women are particularly bothered by orange peel skin on the buttocks. How you can get rid of cellulite on the buttocks, we tell you in this article.
Getting rid of cellulite on the buttocks: these tips can help
Eating healthy is always a good idea. Eating and drinking consciously can also affect the texture of cellulite in some cases, because: A healthy diet can support the metabolism of skin and connective tissue. It has been found that reducing carbohydrates, fat and salt in food intake can have a positive effect on the appearance of the skin. Accordingly, it can help to consume less carbohydrate foods and more vegetable oils and fats. It is also better to avoid sugar and white flour and focus on whole grain products. Fish should also be on the menu twice a week. Furthermore, it is helpful to eat fresh fruits and vegetables every day. Also save on salt, which can prevent unwelcome water retention. One last nutrition tip: drink enough water or unsweetened teas every day.
You can also counteract cellulite on the buttocks with exercise. In some cases, the appearance of orange peel skin can be alleviated by strength training in combination with endurance training. In this sense, it can be helpful to specifically build up the muscles on the buttocks as well as on the thighs and to lower the body fat percentage. Perfect exercises for this are e.g. jogging, lunges with dumbbells or kettlebells, sumo jump squats, abductor and adductor training on the pulley, high intensity training on the ergometer and training on the cross trainer/elliptical trainer.
An ally in the fight against cellulite is also treatment with special cosmetics. One example is the anti-cellulite cream from skin689®. With its exclusive CHacoll® complex of active ingredients, it stimulates collagen synthesis in the subcutaneous tissue. In this way, it can help to smooth the skin. The cream is available from us.

In this approach, we use radio/ultrasound energy to cause fat cells to die and new collagen to form under the skin.

This method can also make the skin on the buttocks firmer and tighter. To do this, we insert a small, fine probe into the subcutaneous tissue. There we place targeted heat points. This causes existing collagen fibers to contract. The formation of new collagen is stimulated.
