Cellulite is an age-old skin concern and one that tends to affect women far more than it does men.
Cellulite tends to appear on areas such as the buttocks, thighs and stomach most often but the arms can also be affected. While many people like to believe that cellulite is directly linked to weight, this isn’t always the case – even skinny women can get cellulite.
Cellulite is the result of pockets of fat pushing up through the supporting fibres under the skin, which creates a dimpling effect. This ‘orange peel’ effect can be highly noticeable and make you feel self-conscious when certain areas of your body are exposed. Thanks to advancements in cosmetic medicine, however, cellulite can be treated.
