Cellulite looks a bit like an orange peel, only it's not very appealing. It is actually fat that appears under the skin, more often in women as they age. The upper arms are one of the areas that cellulite can be found.
Things You'll Need
- Exercise equipment
- Diet plan
- Loofah or body brush
- Firming creams, gels or lotions
Exercise to help improve the appearance of cellulite. Doing weight-bearing routines--like yoga or push ups--can help firm up the arms and improve the appearance of cellulite. Lifting weights and building muscle in the area can also help.
Eating a well-balanced diet is a good way to help decrease cellulite. Foods low in fat and high in vitamins can aid in keeping arm cellulite from becoming prominent. It is also important to try to maintain a healthy weight.
Massage and brush the skin on the arm to help improve circulation. This may have an effect on the amount of cellulite in the area.
Smooth on firming creams, gels and lotions to help minimize the appearance of cellulite on the arms. Try a few to see how they work--many people find the right type only through trial and error. Sometimes it takes a few weeks before there is any change in appearance and some work better than others for a particular person.
