The Real Skinny – It’s Time to Talk About Cellulite

Mar '22

It is profoundly discouraging to eat well, exercise, and respect your body but still be plagued with unchanging dimples on your skin – especially around the hips, thighs, buttocks, and abdominals. The truth is, cellulite is a very common problem, and while it is harmless, it can be a cosmetic nuisance for some people and one that often resists your efforts to combat it.

The Hows and Whys of Cellulite

First, it is entirely normal to have cellulite at any age. It is simply your body tissues response to fat stores. Your skin connects to the muscle by way of fibrous tissue and since fat resides between your skin and muscle, its this fibrous connector that causes the dimpling associated with cellulite. As fat cells grow, they push the skin further away from the tissue connectors, creating visible dimples on the skin known as cellulite. Imagine the buttons on a sofa cushion and you get the idea.

However, the physiology of this connective tissue isnt the same for everyone. Many factors contribute to whether the average person will develop cellulite throughout their lifetime. Men, for example, dont experience cellulite as often as women, mostly due to genetic differences as women tend to store more fat in the hips, thighs, buttocks, and abdominals.

Did you know that roughly 90% of post-pubescent women suffer from cellulite?  As women get older, their estrogen levels begin to decline, causing a lack of blood flow in the body. Since collagen production requires adequate blood flow, this decreased circulation reduces collagen levels, causing the skin to lose elasticity.

Controlling Cellulite with Weight Loss

Unfortunately, a common misconception is that women who struggle with cellulite are not dieting and exercising properly. And while a nutritious diet and weight loss can significantly benefit your overall health and may lessen the appearance of cellulite, in most cases, losing weight will not rid you of cellulite. Dramatic weight loss may even make your cellulite more noticeable than it was before.
