Reduce cellulite and risk of getting more

Q: How can I reduce cellulite and risk of getting more?
I'm only 17 and I'm 5'5'' at about 120lbs. I can't really tell if what I have on my inner thighs is cellulite or stretch marks but I'll assume it's cellulite. Either way, I don't want it. Ugh. Is there any precautions I can take to reduce cellulite already on my body (exercises or anything)? Also, what can I do to make sure I get as little as possible in my future?

A: First, you can check here do you have stretch marks or cellulite.
There's also advices for preventing and losing stretch marks and cellulite.

For reducing cellulite I recommend you to do these things:
  • Walk, swim, run, dance...
  • Exercise at least half an hour a day
  • Drink lots of water - improves blood circulation, makes cellulite less visible
  • Eat health food
  • Brush and massage - also makes cellulite less visible, helps removing it, boosts circulation and skin looks healthier
  • Moisturize your skin
  • Take cold showers
  • Relax - stress could also cause cellulite accumulation

And avoid these things:
  • Junk food - it has "bad" calories (your body is not able to use them up, instead it stores them in form of fat, and fat becomes cellulite if pushed away from cells)
  • Alcohol, cigarettes - generally they're very bad for your skin tone, and improve the appearance of cellulite. Alcohol also dehydrates your body.
  • Physical inactivity - less physically active you are more calories don't end up burned but stored. Also inactivity makes your circulation worse, and so cellulite can form more easily.
  • Tight clothes - those are not good for your blood and lymph circulation, so avoid them if possible.
