photolibrary_rm_photo_of_woman_pinching_cellulite If you are a woman, there’s an 80% chance you’ll have cellulite on your body at  some point in time.  What is cellulite? I’m glad you asked; its  those fat deposits that look like cottage cheese, lumpy, loose, unattractive skin, that seem to frequent your thighs, booty, stomach, and arms.  Fortunately Skin PhD has come up with something to help us get rid of it, but first,  lets go over the cold facts!

What Is Cellulite?

Cellulite is technically just fat;  however, specialists  say that  the protrusion of underlying fat within fibrous connective tissue is what causes cellulite’s lumpy appearance.

What Causes Cellulite?

There are several factors that cause cellulite, but  what seems to be most popular are:

  1. Genes: Most likely,  if your mom doesn’t have it, than neither will you!
  2. Hormones: Specialists speculate that women are more likely to develop cellulite because of estrogen; men hardly ever develop cellulite.
  3. Lifestyle: People who eat fatty,  salty foods and who don’t frequent exercise, are more likely to get cellulite.
