Thanks to this little daily activity, you can also increase the firmness and elasticity of the skin, which will look smoother.
Although the cellulite can happen to any of us, one of the factors that increase radically this probability is the sedentary lifestyle and lack of physical activity. That is why it is really important to choose the exercises that suit us most and spend some time daily on working out.
