Jacques Courtin-Clarins, the founder of the nearly 60-year-old company, was the first researcher to talk about "capiton," or dimpling of the skin, in 1956. This serum not only targets firmness on the surface of the skin, but works to slow the growth and expansion of fat cells, which “pull” on surrounding tissue and cause the appearance of cellulite. $65, clarins.ca.

Stuck on your butt all day? No worries. This targeted body firming serum contains microspheres of extended-release caffeine that work by applying pressure to the area (or just sitting around). The massaging applicator helps loosen up fat stores, but “you have to be dedicated and repeat the routine at least daily,” says Soap & Glory founder Marcia Kilgore. $38, shoppersdrugmart.ca.

Body brushing is one of the best ways to diminish the look of cellulite, because it loosens up fat stores while encouraging the body to drain toxins via the lymphatic system. Plus, it’s an excellent all-natural exfoliator, which means your skin will be smooth in more ways than one. $15, thebodyshop.ca.
