What causes cellulite?
While the exact cause of cellulite is unknown it is likely a result from an interaction between the connective tissue in the dermatological layer that lies below the surface of the skin, and the layer of fat just below it. Regardless of the exact cause, we can all agree that this incredibly common condition is a pain to deal with.
Technical jargon aside, there are factors that contribute to the appearance of cellulite: genetics, age, lifestyle and gender all play important roles. Seriously: between 80-90% of women experience cellulite at some point in their life, while the percentage for men is significantly lower. This is because in women, the fat cells and connective tissue in this layer are arranged vertically (leading to visible dimples in the skin), while in men, the tissue has a criss-cross structure.
Luckily there are non-invasive ways to reduce the appearance of cellulite and restore your confidence:
