Can you really reduce cellulite?

If you’re like me, you’ll agree that the only place for orange-peel skin is on an orange! However, everyone knows it’s really difficult to get rid of cellulite, which is why there are so many different suggestions for reducing it. From simple dry-brushing, to topical creams and lotions, to paying for expensive courses of machine-based treatments, there’s a range of things to try from the inexpensive to the seriously-wallet-harming.
