Cellulite

Cellulite

When fat cells of the body gets trapped by the fibers and ends up forming a network it is called cellulite. These fibers are cleansed continuously by body fluids. This results in poor circulation that gradually slows down the cleansing process. Thus, waste materials get accumulated and thicken and turns into immovable and burdensome fat.

Thigh, hips and buttocks are mostly affected by cellulite. But sometimes upper back, arms and abdomen are also affected by cellulite. The body experiences tightness or heaviness when massaged or pressed. Cellulite is neither an illness nor a disease. You can say that cellulite is a barometer that says that the lifestyle you are leading is unhealthy. In the year 1973, this term was coined.
Compared to men, women suffers from cellulites more. This is because the distribution of muscle, fat, connecting tissues are different in men and women. Sometimes, female hormone also plays pivotal role in uneven distribution of fat. Men does not suffer from this problem as the fibers in their body stay in criss-crossed manner so that fat never gets accumulated quickly.
