WHAT IS CELLULITE?
Did you know that studies have shown that cellulite affects nearly 80% of all women? But what is cellulite?While cellulite is easily associated with being overweight, that’s not actually the case. Cellulite is not fat. Cellulite is caused by fibrous tissues that connect the skin to the underlying muscle layer. Between the skin and the muscle is a layer of fat. This fat can push against those connective tissues, causing them to pull the skin downward, resulting in the dimpled or“cottage cheese” appearance of cellulite. There are lifestyle and health factors that contribute to how much cellulite you have and how visible it is. By managing these factors, you may be able to reduce the appearance of cellulite. These factors include:
- Poor diet or fad diets
- Lack of exercise
- Slow metabolism
- Hormonal changes
- Total body fat
