Cellulites in women!

Cellulites are the formation of dimples and lumps in the skin. It generally forms in the butt and thigh region. It can be in both men and women but mostly common in women. It is not a medical concern, it is generally seen in areas with more of fat like thigh, abs, butt, etc, but it is a general skin problem. It is caused by the interaction of connective tissue and the layer of fat. When this layer of fat bulge onto the skin, cellulites become visible. Factors that causes cellulites: 1. Hormones and age: Hormones like estrogen, insulin, thyroid hormones etc are part of cellulite production. Reducing Estrogen in women reduces the blood flow to the connective tissues which reduces the level of oxygen. This way collagen reduces, enlarging the fat cells. Age also makes the skin thin, which makes cellulites more visible . 2. Genetics: Genetics determine body type and skin texture and structure. It is influenced by genetic factors like fat distribution, Metabolism, circulation that affects cellulite distribution. 3. Dietary and lifestyle factors: People who eat too much, or people who eat unhealthy and have too much fats in their body are likely to have more of visible cellulites. People who exercise regularly and are fit are less likely to have it. It is a harmless skin condition that does not require treatment if you are comfortable having it. It is not fat but gaining weight and losing muscles can make it more visible. Even pregnancy can cause cellulites. There are various surgical options and treatments available but the results are not long lasting. Lifestyle changes like eating right and exercising regularly can help in losing fats and gaining muscles which makes cellulites less visible.
