Are you one of the many women who experience the threat of cellulite? You’re not alone! Approximately 9 out of 10 women will have some form of cellulite during their lifetime. But it’s not an issue that you can solve with lifestyle changes.
Regardless of your workouts and diet, which can have a positive impact on your skin and radiance, when it comes to tackling the dreaded cellulite, it only has a limited impact. So what can you do? Let’s show you exactly how cellulite forms, and what you can do to combat it effectively.
What Causes Cellulite?
The common misconception is that cellulite is a buildup of fat, but in fact, it has almost nothing to do with fat. And it has nothing to do with your diet or health. It is something that happens to your skin naturally over time.
As we get older, our skin starts to thin. This, in combination with fat cells enlarging and pushing against the skin, causes the fibrous bands underneath the skin to thicken and create tension.
This tension caused by the bands is what causes the dimpling around your problem areas, commonly known as cellulite.
