You do not need to wear long pants during the entire summer. We’ve collected tricks with which you can get rid of orange peel skin on your thighs – so that everything runs smoothly again quickly!
Our best exercises and tips against cellulite:
Get rid of cellulite with the right diet
Studies have shown that cellulite occurs more often in women whose bodies are acidic. On the other hand, the orange peel skin on the thigh can also be contained by foods that are rich in vitamins and have an alkaline effect.
Therefore, try to significantly increase the proportion of fresh foods (mainly vegetables) in your diet. Vitamin C-rich fruits and vegetables cleanse and increase fat metabolism, reducing cellulite. Also, make sure you’re getting enough protein, healthy fats, and whole grains.
These foods avoid against cellulite on the buttocks
Too much fat, sugar, and salt cause the skin to store fat or water, which causes dents. Avoid refined sugar, white flour, salty foods, quick meals, and fast food to reduce cellulite.
Caffeine is also suspected of aggravating cellulite since the body is dehydrated and acidification occurs. You should therefore significantly reduce the consumption of coffee and energy drinks. Cigarettes and alcohol are also taboo, as they promote the accumulation of toxins and damage the connective tissue.

Orange peel on your legs? Try contrast showers & dry brushing
Contrast showers have been a tried and tested remedy for cellulite for years. Alternating between cold and warm water promotes blood circulation and stimulates metabolism. The problem areas are first showered with warm water and then with cold water for about 1-2 minutes.
Always finish the process with cold water. Dry brushing is also a very effective method in fighting cellulite on thighs. The problem areas are treated with a special brush while they are dry. The stimulation of the lymphatic system, which is located directly under your skin, is stimulated, waste products are removed and the skin is supplied with more blood.
It is important that both the skin and the brush are dry. Brush with single, long strokes in the direction of the heart, so no hard back and forth scrubbing, that only irritates the skin. A gentle push is enough. It is best to do this three times a week before you shower.
Tip against cellulite: drink more water
In the fight against cellulite, drinking a lot is particularly important in addition to a healthy diet. It should be two to three liters of water or unsweetened tea a day.
Due to the high fluid intake, waste products and toxins are flushed out of the body. This makes the skin look plumper. Fruit juices or soft drinks are not recommended due to their high sugar content.
Pro tip: With our True Beauty Collagen Drink, you can also provide your body with highly effective collagen and high-quality hyaluronic acid, thereby replenishing your skin’s water balance from within.
Cardio training against dents on the thigh
The most effective helper in the fight against cellulite is clearly: sport! The dents on the thighs, stomach, and buttocks are often due to enlarged fat cells. Therefore, fat must be burned and muscles built at the same time.
A combination of strength and endurance sports is therefore ideal for making orange peel skin disappear. Jogging, walking, cycling, swimming, Zumba, and aerobics are particularly effective cellulite killers and should be done at least three times a week.
You finally want to get rid of cellulite? Then off to strength training
A lack of movement causes the muscles to relax and thus also the tissue. Blood flow also decreases, which in turn affects metabolism. Strength training builds muscles and tightens connective tissue.
In order to achieve quick and, above all, visible results, strength training should be carried out three times a week. The following are the most efficient workouts for reducing cellulite in the thighs, calves, and buttocks:
Squats against orange peel on the legs
Start position: Find a platform about 25 cm high, and 30 cm wide and stand on it.
Jump up and touch both feet to the ground.
Jump up and land on the platform.
The amount of times you do this exercise depends on your fitness routine.
