If you suffer from cellulite, you know exactly what it is. Cellulite is that dimpled, orange peel appearance on the skin that usually shows up on the thighs, buttocks, hips, and abdomen in both men and women. Women are more prone to cellulite, mainly because they are more likely to have certain types of fat and connective tissue. Although cellulite is not a serious medical condition, it can lead to emotional scarring and self-consciousness that may be life altering.
Very little is understood about why cellulite forms in the first place. Dermatologists and doctors have several theories as to what causes cellulite including hormonal factors, genetics, diet, lifestyle choices, and clothing. Since cellulite usually appears after puberty when hormones are constantly changing, experts feel this plays a big role in its formation. Certain genes may also predispose someone to cellulite. Science has found that people who eat a diet high in fat, carbohydrates, salt, and too little fiber are more likely to have more cellulite than those who eat healthy. Lifestyle factors such as smoking, not enough exercise, and sitting or standing in one place for long periods of time may contribute to the formation of cellulite as well. Clothing that is too tight, such as underwear with elastic leg bands, can restrict blood flow and possibly lead to cellulite.
Regardless of the cause, cellulite is an unsightly nuisance that most people can do without, especially during the summer months. Wearing shorts and swimsuits when the weather is hot can be nerve-wracking for those who suffer this skin condition. Fortunately, there are anti-cellulite products and cellulite treatments that can help improve the appearance of the skin, so you can be confident in your summer attire.
