Ever heard of the term 'Dimpled skin'? We all know about those cute dimples which stand by our smiles for sure. But this thing is different. A dimpled skin refers to cellulite.

Cellulite appear onto the areas of skin where the connective tissue lying beneath gets invaded by fat. Hence, the result of which is a skin that has depressions and elevations all around, making it appear quite uneven.

Cellulite tend to develop onto the fatty areas of one's body, such as the thighs, buttocks, hips as well as the abdomen. And this skin condition is known to affect the female gender more.


But what causes cellulite? Is it a disease?

Of course not. When cellulite appear on a part of the body, they actually indicate the presence of extra fat in that particular area. Though it is not a serious medical condition, but cellulite can make anyone conscious about their appearance.

Keeping aside the genetic and hormonal causes, cellulite most commonly happen due to some inappropriate lifestyle factors, such as wearing jeans that are tight at the thighs and hips. Tight clothing interrupts the normal blood flow to the particular part.

Moreover, sitting or standing in a position for long, such that a particular part of your body bears most of the weight, would make that side affected with cellulite.

Cellulite can also affect smokers.

Anti-cellulite massages can help one get rid of this trouble. Such massages aim at improving blood flow to the affected part, which would in turn remove those depressions from the skin.

Mild cellulite condition can also be eradicated by the use of some prescribed anti-cellulite creams which aim at dissolving the fat that has entered beneath the skin, making it appear dimpled.
