When it comes to cellulite, not even stars are exempt from this unsightly beauty issue (unless you're actress Malin Akerman who showed off her toned body while giving her cleavage a boost in a Victoria's Secret Miraculous Bikini Top in Miami on Tuesday.)

And sadly, even if you did lunges across the Atlantic Ocean you still wouldn’t get rid of those unattractive lumps. However, there are a few easy ways to effectively camouflage pesky thigh and butt dimples.

1. Buff it Away with Dry Brushing

"Regular brushing of the skin not only increases circulation, it stimulates elimination of cellular waste, softens, and smoothes," say the experts at Bliss spas. Using a firm, natural-bristle body brush start at your feet and slowly work your way to your shoulders using small circular motions. Be sure to hit all areas, including your spine, chest, and neck! Try Bliss fatgirlbrush available at blissworld.com.

2. Hide it with Self Tanner

If you can't get rid of cellulite, try disguising it with a fake tan, since bumps are less noticeable on a bronzed bod than on a pale, pasty one. Your best bet for disguising cellulite is an aerosol formula -- the easy spray will allow you to contour and get hard-to-reach areas. Try Sephora Tinted Self-Tanning Body Mist, $14 at sephora.com.

3. Reduce it with Creams

Khloe Kardashian announced in May that she'd be teaming up with NIVEA for their four-week "Good-bye Cellulite, Hello Bikini!" challenge -- and documenting her progress on the brand's Facebook page. If you're looking to embark on your own dimple-diminshing journey, opt for body lotions that contain caffeine, or in NIVEA's case, L-Carnitine, which stimulates fat metabolism. Try NIVEA Good-bye Cellulite Smoothing Gel Cream, $13.99 at walgreens.com.
