Cellulite affects more than 85 per cent of women, representing all shapes and sizes. It is made up of free-floating fat cells that are deposited just beneath the skin. It has a distinct appearance, like the dimpled surface of an orange peel or cottage cheese. It is most common in the thighs, but it can also be present on the legs, buttocks or stomach.
Having cellulite doesn’t mean you are overweight. Even thin people can have it. If you are overweight, however, losing weight may reduce cellulite. Cellulite is more common among women than men. If other women in your family have cellulite, there’s a good chance you will too. Other factors that influence how much cellulite you have and how visible it is includes poor diet, fad dieting, slow metabolism, hormone changes, dehydration, total body fat and lack of physical activity.
