Get the bottom line on what causes cellulite and how to stop it -- just in time for beach season. From ways to get rid of cellulite naturally to exercises that stop cellulite, we've got you covered.

The Truth About Cellulite

If you're seeing bumps on your behind, you're in good company: About 90 percent of women -- and virtually no men -- have cellulite, fat cells found underneath the top layer of the skin that have squeezed between bands of connective tissue, or collagen, attaching your muscle to your skin. While the structure of women's connective tissue is vertical (like mattress springs), men's collagen is angled, which means that fat cells don't push through and pucker as much. Dermatologists believe that poor circulation, which is primarily genetic (thanks, Mom and Dad!), can exacerbate the look of lumps. "When blood flow slows, collagen separates, allowing fat to come up to the surface of the skin, creating an orange-peel effect," says Howard Murad, MD, a FITNESS advisory board member and author of The Cellulite Solution.

This puckering can mess with your confidence: In a FITNESS survey, readers ranked cellulite as their number-one beauty bummer (above acne, frizzy hair, and wrinkles). Fifty-seven percent of women have worn clothing over their bathing suits to camouflage it, according to a study commissioned by Nivea. While there is no cure (sadly!), derms believe it's possible to temporarily camouflage bumps. So before you grab that sarong, here's the skinny on the latest potions that firm.

One reason I wouldn't subscribe to your magazine is that your online articles, many of them, have titles that indicate, if I read them, I'll gain some knowledge, like "How to get rid of cellulite fast," but then don't answer the question. It leaves readers like me, well, annoyed that you've suckered me into wasting my time. So, no subscription for me.
