Cellulite - All You Need to Know - by Esse&Co
Cellulite is a very common, harmless skin condition that causes lumpy, dimpled flesh on the thighs, hips, buttocks and abdomen. It forms when fatty tissue deep in the skin pushes up against connective tissue.
All of us —regardless of weight, body fat percentage and fitness level below our skin level have cells that store energy in our body. Over time, they grow as a result of several factors, including our daily lifestyle, hormones and eating habits. The fat cells are inside compartments that connect the skin to muscles. When our fat cells are small, earlier in life, they generally fit well inside these compartments. As our body develops, the fat cells grow and those compartments pull down on the skin as the expanding fat cells push upward. That's what creates the uneven surface of cellulite.
Cellulite is very common. Approximately 85% of all women who've gone through puberty have cellulite. Less than 10% of men have cellulite.
Genetics, sex, age, the amount of fat on your body and your skin's thickness determine how much cellulite our body have and how visible it is. With time, our skin loses elasticity and it is more likely to show the appearance of cellulite. Gaining weight can also make the appearance of cellulite more prominent.
Although people with obesity have pronounced cellulite, it's not uncommon for slimmer people to notice the appearance of cellulite.
