How do I help my 3-year-old daughter lose her cellulite?

My daughter eats healthy for the most part and she seems like she is pretty active, so I don't know what the problem is. She has it on her stomach and but and upper legs areas. Any ideas??

  • OH IM SORRY I READ THAT WRONG! i thought she was older...
    a 3 year old.... she might just have to wait it out and may grow out of it! Dimpled skin forms when fatty tissues in certain parts of the body accumulate fluid and wastes. i would make sure i gave her vitamins and lots of fluid to flush out toxins. i have two different type of vitamins for kids under the children tab and i can still research and see if there is something else of you want!

  • She might be headed for a growth spurt. I have a chunky one and know what you are saying. Happened with my first one too. Be patient. She'll end up shooting up like a weed but her weight will stay close to the same. Don't give her any meds or cremes... you never know what repercussions will come of it. When in doubt seek the advice of your pediatrician. Good luck!

  • Do not worry about a 3 year old having "cellulite" That'll put the thought in her head TOO EARLY that you have to be skinny! Just let her grow up! if she's not overweight for her height or age (find out from your DR) do not take any action!

  • Don't worry about cellulite. If shes eating good and healthy and shes active it will go away on its own, just keep her active and hydrated. My 4yr old looks a little chubby, but she is so active I have a hard time keeping up with her and I work out!!! I walk everywhere and I take her with me, she runs most of the way and sometimes its a lot (15 blocks!)

  • You can never fully get rid of cellulite but you can reduce the appearence of it. Try to massage the areas where it is or salt scrubs to help break up the fat deposits
