Cellulite, the unsightly fat around your thighs and hips which has made you reject a major chunk of your wardrobe, is the result of an internal dermatological fat accumulation. This fat protrudes into the dermis, which is the layer just below the outermost layer of the skin – the epidermis. In case of cellulite, the connective tissue within this layer gets weakened, thus paving way for the fat to protrude through, thereby giving you cellulite. The cause for developing cellulite can range from excess body fat to the uneven distribution of fat, or it could be simply genetic.
Cellulite is more common a problem among women because men tend to have thicker skin, therefore for the fat to push through the dermis and make way to the outermost layer is rare.
Cellulite grows more prominent in women as they grow older because the collagen store keeps declining. However, there is not a cause to worry. A considerable chunk of women globally are suffering from the condition, and cellulite can be brought down to a great extent by simple changes in your diet and lifestyle. A healthy diet aiming against build-up of fat and regular exercise, as well as some massaging can reduce cellulite effectively.
Here are some ways by which you can bring down cellulite and an even looking skin.
