What Causes Cellulite?
Cellulite happens when underlying fat deposits begin to push through layers of collagen fibers or connective tissue underneath the skin. The process happens primarily in the buttocks, thighs, arms stomach, and other common trouble spots. Over time, connective tissue can be weakened by changes in hormone levels, lack of exercise, excess fat, poor circulation and reduced muscle tone. A lot of over-the-counter products may claim cellulite is formed by an increase in impurities and toxins in the body. However there is no evidence to support this claim.
