Cellulite is nothing more than normal fat beneath the skin. The fat appears bumpy because it pushes against connective tissue, causing the skin above it to pucker. Cellulite is most common in adolescent and adult women around the thighs, hips, buttocks and abdomen. Fortunately, there are several exercises you can do to get rid of cellulite around thighs and butt.
