Cellulite is fat just beneath the skin that becomes dimpled and nodular, as it is trapped between tight bands of connective tissue, leading to an “orange peel” appearance. It’s most commonly found around the buttocks, thighs and tummy, and unfortunately affects most women.

What causes cellulite?

The most dominant factor is the female hormone oestrogen. Genetics and stress also play a part. Ultimately though in most cases, a part from having a normal healthy lifestyle, a good diet, drinking water and taking regular exercise, there may not be much you can do to prevent cellulite forming as it affects 80-90% of women.
