Cellulite

Cellulite is the abnormal storage of fat cells (adipolocytes) under the skin which causes the collagen layers to become thinner, giving the skin a dimpling effect. Although this sounds very medical it is in fact just ordinary body fat that appears to be bumpy because it pushes against the connective tissue beneath the skin, causing the skin above it to gather in small wrinkles.

Even though cellulite is fat, it isn’t harmful and having it doesn’t mean you are overweight.

What causes it?

Factors that influence the amount of cellulite you have:

  • Hereditary factors
  • Unhealthy diet
  • Alcohol & caffeine
  • Being overweight
  • Smoking
  • Not drinking enough water
