It's a problem even famous, beautiful women grapple with -- here's how!

Wanting to maintain a toned bottom and smooth and sculpted thighs is every woman's wish, and here to help are tips that celebrities received on how to get rid of cellulite.

Dermatologist to the stars, Dr Howard Murad has been advising celebrities on how to stay toned, and he explains in Body and Soul magazine why women as skinny as Kate Moss can still get cellulite.

"Cellulite is not a fat problem. It's a skin cellular problem, you can have total liposuction and get rid of every bit of regular fat and still have cellulite -- you can exercise till the cows come home, it isn't going to help," he said.

Murad goes on to explain why his methods work such wonders, and how you too can get rid of cellulite, by eating foods that will help rid your body of lumps.

"Foods rich in nutrients like lecithin, essential fatty acids, amino acids and antioxidants will reduce cellular inflammation, squeeze out excess fluids, and, most importantly, increase circulation which prevents cells from migrating to the surface and looking like cottage cheese," he explained.

The key to beating cellulite, he says, is to strengthen the skin through the food we eat.

Kate Moss takes her antioxidants in the form of white tea. She combines this with lecithin from eggs and soya and gains some essential fatty acids from nuts and seeds.
