Cellulite is the appearance of dimple-like formations on your skin. It is caused by fat deposits under the skin and generally appears on the buttocks and thighs, though it can appear on any part of your skin. Cellulite can afflict both men and women, though women are more susceptible to it because of their thinner skin and a different type of connective tissue makeupthan man.
The medical term for cellulite is OedematousFibroscleroticSuperficial Panniculitis (OFSB). It is defined as the inflammation of the fat deposits underneath the skin surface.
A majority of women aged over 19 years have cellulite. People who are over a normal weight level are at a greater risk of cellulite, though even thin people can get it. Pregnancy and other conditions which cause your appearance to change can lead to cellulite.
There are numerous causes of cellulite, including
- An unhealthy diet
- A sedentary lifestyle with lack of physical activity, especially when combined with a poor diet
- Lack of hydration
- Wearing tight clothes
- Hormonal imbalance
