Does cellulite ever go away?

I have cellulite and thought that exercise might rid me of it. But now I have noticed that even the skinniest of girls can have it too. Is there anything to do about it that's not invasive?

I don't know if it works but Arbonne has a new product that's specifically made to get rid of cellulite. I love all the Arbonne products I've ever used so I expect this one to work pretty darn well, too. Check out the link.

I've heard that the cells that give the appearance of cellulite are permenant, but you can make them less noticable by general toning and fitness. Topical products are just a gimmick.

I'm sure it's different for everyone, but I found that when I was in my best shape - had toned up my muscles and greatly reduced my body fat - the cellulite was almost entirely gone. Mine is mostly visible on my upper legs, so it took a lot of work to get rid of it - that is where I lose weight last.
The truth is, it's the same as most other weight loss issues - a healthy diet and regular exercise are the best solution. But, yes eventually the cellulite may decrease significantly - it did in my case.

It doesn't go away for most people, even when they lose lots of weight.

thighs and butt are the most stubborn places for cellulite but all it takes is hard work on your part, and if you ask any trainer or even people who have tried creams or anything for it they are gimmicks, so don't waste your money.

I think it's "always" there, but you can make it less noticeable or even totally unnoticeable if you tone up, eat right, and drink enough water (I think stored toxins add to the appearance of cellulite - so flushing them by drinking enough water is important). I had a little bit of cellulite that you could see if I crossed my legs, under my thighs. Now that I've toned up, I can't see it anymore.

This is my own interpretation, based on no science whatsoever - just how I invision cellulite. It looks, to me, like a string that's attached to the inside of your skin and also to something inside you (I think of it as running to the bone), so it sucks in your skin where it's attached. It's a fixed length. If you lose the flab, then all of your skin will be that same distance away from your bone, rather than pushed out further by fat. So, even though the spots are still "attached," you can't see it b/c the skin gets to lie there, flat.
