Although the last thing you probably want to do at the moment is show some skin, owing to the freezing weather and the excess Christmas weight, it's always a good idea to get ahead of the curve and get your body bikini ready.

If one of your New Year's resolutions is to get rid of cellulite, it doesn't have to take over your life.

Indeed, there are five easy things you can do to ensure that cellulite is kept at bay in 2013.

Stair climbing

Climbing stairs is perfect for melting cellulite.

It gives your thighs and bum a real thorough work out - burning the muscles in these areas to the absolute core.

As these are the most likely places where you will get cellulite, there's nothing quite like stair climbing for getting rid of the pesky bumps.

You can either do this by investing in a stepper, attending a step class or simply by opting for the stairs instead of the lift wherever possible.


Squats are great because they require no special equipment and can be done from the comfort of your own home.

According to health blog, Live Strong, to perform a squat you need stand up straight and bend your knees until your thighs are parallel to the floor. Keep your back straight and push your glutes backward as though you are going to sit down in a chair.

Using your leg muscles, slowly come back to a standing position.

Cellulite oil

Fushi's cellulite oil has been combined with stimulating and diuretic green coffee bean oil, vitamin-rich, nourishing wheatgerm oil, vitamin E, detoxifying sweet birch and cleansing grapefruit essential oil - all natural ingredients which help reduce the appearance of cellulite.

According to the Daily Mail, "Fushi’s cellulite oil shifts the orange peel look".

Not only will this make you feel truly liberated in the summer months, it will give you that extra special confidence boost all year round.
