Everything You Want To Know About Cellulite
Cellulite is nothing to feel ashamed or embarrassed about because it’s a normal part of the human body. Up to about 80% of women have cellulite. Cellulite can appear anywhere on your body, however, it’s most common around the tush, thighs, and stomach area. Whether you love it, hate it, embrace it or you are trying to get rid of it, remember it’s your body, and only your opinion matters. For myself, I have cellulite and stretch marks on my hips, down my thighs, and on my tush. As I’ve gotten older I’ve accepted it and to be honest it doesn’t bother me anymore. That said - I’m all for trying new things that can help smoothen skin and make my cellulite appear less bumpy. With that said, let’s dive into all things cellulite.
What is Cellulite?
Let’s break it down. The external presentation of cellulite on the body can appear as lumps, dimples, or uneven surfaces. The lumps and bumps form from fat cells beneath your skin. A quick side note, everyone has these fat cells no matter what body shape or type you are.
Under your skin, you have these fibrous connective cords that connect the skin to underlying muscles. In between these cords, there are fat cells. As the fat cells accumulate, they push up against the fibrous connective cords which you guessed, results in cellulite.
