If you’ve noticed these pesky dimples, the reality is you are not alone. An enormous 85 per cent of women over the age of 20 have noticeable cellulite. Here’s the thing though, cellulite has absolutely nothing to do with your body composition with some of the fittest and slimmest women still afflicted.
What actually causes cellulite?
Scientifically speaking, cellulite occurs when adipose (fat) tissue pushes through the connective tissue of the skin. Despite the enormous number of women walking around with cellulite, the exact cause is still not fully understood. Scientists believe there may be some association between ethnicity and genetics and the presence of cellulite.
The bad news is just because you may not have cellulite right now doesn’t mean you may not experience it later in life with hormonal changes that occur during menopause and pregnancy known to increase our susceptibility to cellulite. Hormones impact the amount of fat we store, the quality of our skin and connective tissue health, this is generally when we start to see more visible cellulite.
A number of lifestyle factors are also known to increase the presence of cellulite, including smoking, excess alcohol, lack of exercise and poor diet. These all affect the body’s healthy connective tissue structure, detoxification processes and circulation, which can all increase the appearance of cellulite.
