What is Cellulite?

Cellulite, a distinctive layer of subcutaneous body fat (adiposis edematosa), is a condition that affects an estimated 90% of post pubescent females.

The main cause of cellulite is poor micro-circulation, making it difficult for adequate nutrients to reach all areas of the body and skin, which in turn can reduce the body’s ability to process toxins, resulting in cellulite; also known as orange peel or cottage cheese skin.

Cellulite presents as uneven, lumpy, dimpled skin which most frequently appears on the bottom, stomach and thigh areas. Having cellulite doesn’t mean that a woman is overweight; it can affect women of all shapes and sizes.

There is no cure for cellulite, but there are a variety of treatments available to help reduce the lumpy appearance, ranging from evasive surgery to topical treatments. However, a change in lifestyle and the way you eat is essential to prevent the reoccurrence of cellulite.
