New You Beauty Tip: Incorporate essential oils and squats into your nightly routine to boost circulation and reduce the appearance of cellulite.

Regardless of weight, 8 in every 10 women suffer from cottage cheese on their thighs and buttocks. You can blame your mother (AKA genetics) or you can put up your best fight. Healthy Exercise World reports that poor circulation reduces essential nutrients to the area under the skin and weakens its connective tissue leading to unsightly dimples. Essential oils and squats are two great tactics to boost circulation and thus reduce the appearance of cellulite. Every other night devote 15 minutes to air or chair squats. We recommend two to four sets of 20 reps, adding weight for enhanced results. Then, before bed, apply Juniper, rosemary and lavender to stimulate blood flow, reduce puffiness and revitalize your skin. So forget about genetics, and take control of your cottage cheese.
