Do you know that cellulite is a metabolic disease that affects many women and It is characterized by functional and physiological changes in fibrous tissue, circulatory disorders and enlarged fat cells.
Cellulite is the dimpled-looking skin that commonly occurs in the thigh region. It forms when fatty tissue deep in the skin pushes up against connective tissue. It’s estimated that more than 85 percent of all women 21 years and older have cellulite. It’s not as common in men.
Cellulite can develop on the thighs because the area naturally has more fatty tissue. Other risk factors for the development of cellulite include:
- family history
- tissue inflammation
- increased fatty tissue caused by weight gain
- loss of collagen
- poor circulation (a common issue in the legs)
- poor lymphatic drainage
- thinning epidermis (outer layer of skin)
In terms of your overall health, there’s nothing wrong with having cellulite. However, many people wish to reduce its appearance. In addition, it does not imply a serious risk to health, although in some cases it may trigger other ailments. It is best known for being an aesthetic problem that causes many discomforts. It can even affect your self-esteem.
The lack of physical activity aggravates the situation. The practice of physical exercise helps the blood circulation and the metabolism of fat cells. An excessive diet of calories leads to an increase in the weight of the fat cells. This makes the process of cellulite worse.
