Causes & Symptoms

Cellulite can affect both men and women of all shapes and sizes and is most likely to appear around the hip, buttocks, stomach and thighs, but some people also experience it on the arms, back, breasts and neck. Cellulite is a term used to describe the dimpled appearance of skin cause by a layer of fat beneath the skin that pushes against connective tissue, causing the skin to pucker around it.

Cellulite usually springs up just after puberty, for a wide variety of reasons. Your hormones play an important part, as oestrogen actually breaks down collagen fibres, which are responsible for keeping your skin looking plump and youthful. Without as many collagen fibres to keep them in place, fat cells begin to move towards the surface of the skin, which then forms the cottage cheese appearance. The effect can be worsened by having a higher percentage of body fat, smoking, or having a poor diet.

Frequently asked questions

What should you avoid?

Although cellulite plagues so many of us, there are things you can do to improve the look of it. A healthy diet and exercise regime is a fantastic place to start. Not only does it improve your overall health, but reducing overall body fat and strengthening muscle fibres beneath the skin are hugely beneficial when it comes to reducing cellulite. Smoking reduces blood flow to your skin cells and destroys collagen, which makes cellulite worse, so it’s best to quit if you’re serious about improving your skin.
