HI Shiver

Unfortunately not, because cellulite is simply fat storage beneath the skin, and so rubbing an oil over it will not be effective. The only remedy for this instead is to burn fat, and this is done by exercising, and then to combine that with a healthy diet. As for stretch marks, those are quite difficult to sort out - the skin is connective tissue, which is able to stretch and then weight is rapidly lost, it often creates this loose skin appearance. Over time, the skin may 'recontract', but often not to the same starting point. Therefore, unfortunately, the remedy for severe loose skin and stretch marks may be surgical. However, for cellulite, regular exericse and a healthy diet will be the most effective means of combat.

Good luck
