We ask the expert - is it really possible to eliminate cellulite?

Orange-peel skin plagues some 98 percent of women on this planet - regardless of body shape and size.

On the weekend, former model and mum-to-be Claudine Keane revealed that her top tip for keeping her skin healthy is a bargain beauty product that won't break the bank.

The pregnant mum-of-one claimed that Bio Oil, which comes in at a mere €7.50, is her go-to formula to keep her body hydrated and glowing.

In fact, the readily available oil remains an international bestseller, and is routinely cited as a bathroom cabinet essential for women of all ages.

The market is inundated with products that claim to literally work miracles - whether it’s evening skin tone, reducing the appearance of scars, or most dubiously - combating cellulite.

With toning gels and firming creams costing up to €200, and invasive laser procedures and ‘fat blasting’ treatments being cited as the answer, we were keen to see what really works when it comes to eliminating cellulite.

Who better to ask than a personal trainer and fitness instructor - someone whose job requires them to know the ins and outs of the human body.

TRX mastermind Nejia, of TotalFIT, maintains that there is no quick fix for getting rid of dimpled skin, as it is reflective of your overall lifestyle.

However - readers will be glad to know that her “hero product” costs an affordable €13

Nejia says she “swears by” Nivea Goodbye Cellulite Gel-Cream, which she has been using for years. The product comes in at affordable €6.66 in Boots.

Lotions and potions aside - she insists that there are only three failsafe ways to reduce the likelihood of pesky cellulite.

*Clean eating and a wholesome diet

*Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate - start everyday with hot water and lemon, which has a myriad of benefits including weight loss.

*Move - exercise increases lymphatic drainage which eliminates toxins from the body, and it's these toxins that create cellulite.
