Cellulite: Questions, Causes, Myths, And Ways To Minimize It
While cellulite is common, not harmful to your health, and it is not the same as fat (like some people assume), there is no single answer as to why it appears and how to get rid of it once it is there. According to dermatologists, it is so common that about 90% of women have cellulite (which is probably actually closer to 100%), and some men (about 10%) as well. It looks like it's inevitable if you’re a woman — but why?
Cellulite results from fat cells pushing up against the fibrous connective tissue that surrounds them.
