Wish There Were a Magic Potion to Smooth Cellulite? There Is! (Kind of...)

An expert dermatologist tells us exactly how to do it.

By Katherine Kluznik

You know those dimples that pucker your thighs and bum? Contrary to what the Photoshopped ads that clog your feed suggest, they are very much the norm — just ask an expert. “Cellulite is extremely common. Eighty to ninety percent of women have it,” says dermatologist Shereene Idriss, M.D. of Union Square Laser Dermatology in Manhattan.

Common as it might be, I’m not going to lie: When summer rolls around, I do like the thought of minimizing the look of my cellulite as much as possible. So I asked Dr. Idriss for the secret to defying genetics and making my skin appear smooth head to toe.

“There is no miracle cream that will fully get rid of cellulite, but creams can help reduce the appearance of it,” she said. The trick: finding products powered with caffeine — a quick-fix that temporarily shrinks fat cells — or retinol, a form of vitamin A that boosts collagen growth, thickening the skin that overlies fat cells and gradually smoothing lumps and bumps in the process.
