Cellulite is when the fat beneath the skin pushes against the connective tissue. This is what causes the skin above it to look dimpled and bumpy – some people even say it looks similar to orange peel. There are varying degrees of cellulite and it can range from being barely noticeable to more severe and spread out over a larger area.
Although the formation of cellulite is natural process and won’t harm you, a lot of women don’t like the way it looks and want to get rid of it or at least minimise its appearance.
It's sometimes difficult to know what causes cellulite, as there are often different factors involved, including:
An unhealthy diet
A slow metabolism
- Not being physically active enough
- Changes in hormone levels
- Having a high body fat percentage
- Certain genetic make-ups
