Cause Of CelluliteCause Of Cellulite

So many women wonder about the cause of cellulite. Who wouldn’t? Cellulite is this ugly looking “dimples” that start appearing on your arms, waist and thighs, the moment that you start aging.

No mater how much you try to prevent cellulite, it will just keep on appearing.

According to WebMD, 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 include:

  • Poor diet
  • Fad dieting
  • Slow metabolism
  • Lack of physical activity
  • Hormone changes
  • Dehydration
  • Total body fat
  • Thickness and color of your skin

Cellulite tends to be less noticeable on darker skin. If you have light skin and plan to be out in a bathing suit or short shorts, applying a self-tanner may make the bumps and dimples on your thighs less noticeable.
