Cellulite

At some point in our lives, most women – and some men – are bothered to a degree by cellulite, the lumpy substance that makes skin on the thighs and buttocks look like cottage cheese. Although its name may make it sound like a medical condition, cellulite is nothing more than normal fat beneath the skin. The fat appears bumpy because it pushes against the connective tissue beneath the skin, causing the skin above it to pucker.

Cellulite causes

Even though cellulite is fat, having it doesn’t mean you are overweight. Even thin people can have cellulite. If you are overweight, however, losing weight may reduce cellulite.

Being a woman makes you more likely to develop cellulite. Genes also play an important role. If other women in your family have cellulite, there’s a good chance you will too. Other factors that influence the amount of cellulite you have and how visible it is include:

  • Unhealthy diet
  • Fad dieting
  • Slow metabolism
  • Lack of physical activity
  • Hormone changes
  • Dehydration
  • Total body fat
  • The thickness and colour of your skin
