WHAT IS CELLULITE?
When this fat pushes up towards the top layer of your skin through your connective tissue, it gives your skin the dimpled appearance, known as cellulite.
Cellulite is most common in the buttocks and thigh areas, but can also appear on your arms, belly and hips.
WHY DO WOMEN GET MORE CELLULITE THAN MEN?
It’s all down to the structure of the skin. Essentially, the connective tissue that connects the top layer of skin with the muscles forms differently in men and women.
- In women – the connective tissue forms in vertical columns resulting in the appearance of cellulite.
- In men – the connective tissue forms in more of a netting or crisscross pattern
The crisscross pattern contains or “holds back” the fat from the top layer of skin more effectively than female connective tissue does, reducing the initial signs of cellulite.
Another contributing factor that builds cellulite is the thickness of a woman’s skin. A woman’s skin is thinner than a man’s skin. Thinner skin provides less resistance to the force of the fat cells pressing against it.
Always read the label. Follow the directions for use.
