You’re not alone: The cosmetic condition affects nearly 90% of women at some point during their lives.
Its name makes it sound like a medical condition. But cellulite is nothing more than normal fat beneath the skin. The fat appears bumpy because it pushes against connective tissue, causing the skin above it to pucker.
Cellulite isn’t harmful. Many people though, would like to get rid of it because of the way it looks. Having cellulite doesn’t mean you are overweight. Even thin people can have it. If you are overweight, however, losing weight may reduce cellulite.
Cellulite is more common among women than men. If other women in your family have cellulite, there’s a good chance you will too. Factors affecting cellulite are poor diet, fad dieting, slow metabolism, lack of physical activity, hormone changes, dehydration, total body fat, thickness and colour of your skin.
