Cellulite is a type of fat tissue
in the subcutaneous layer of the skin that contains constricting
bands of connective tissue. This connective tissue, which
diverges in thickness and is laced with fat cells, is held
in place by a system of fibers that protects our body, cushioning
our muscles and organs; it is surrounded by a liquid that
both nourishes it and provides it with an effective waste
structure. When all is working well in the structure, waste
products are removed and smooth curves result; when toxins,
fats and fluids are ensnared deep in the skin (below the epidural
layer) though, the connective tissue solidifies and hardens,
giving a dimpling appearance. As we grow older, the layer
of skin thins, ensuing in the rippled effect of cellulite.
It is something similar to wrinkles that form on the face
as you age.

fat inside the cellulite is identical to the fat in other
areas of the body. There is no distinction in the fat. So
the presence of cellulite is not an issue of any difference
in fat. It is more a problem of how the fat is positioned
inside the body, below the skin in the thighs and buttocks.
Though everyone has a smooth layer
of fat, individual quantities depend on genetics, weight and
lifestyle. This fat deposit is an insulator for the body and
acts as a pillow to the muscles, organs and nerves.
Cellulite, in contrast, is lumpy
and offers no padding at all. It only happens in specific
areas of the body: the abdomen, breasts thighs and buttocks.
Hormones play a major role in cellulite formation because
men rarely show cellulite. When men get cellulite (if they
ever do), it tends to show on the neck and abdomen.
is not necessarily a factor of body weight. Though most women
carry their excess fat in thighs and buttocks, cellulite does
not depend on weight. You need not be overweight to get cellulite.
As we mentioned before, it is more a problem of aging. Though
diet and lifestyle affect cellulite development, a large part
of it is made of toxins and fat that accumulate in the body
and can affect women of any size, weight and body structure.
