Hi Lilly

Cellulite, yes, and skin, yes, but to a lesser extent. It certainly helps to lose weight through exercise, because it happens a lot less quickly, and it's that rapid weight loss that can affect the skin. Also, the toning type exercises, to firm the muscle, tends to help with the skin problem, so it's certainly worth doing. But whether it will ever take the problem away, unfortunately not.

For cellulite, yes, absolutely, exercise does help - another cellulite question was asked a little earlier, and you might consider that one in this forum - it's question 210 on this page.

Good luck
