A Simple Technique to Get Rid of Cellulite
WHAT IS CELLULITE?
First of all, cellulite is not a disease. This term rather describes the fat tissue under your skin which usually is present your in thighs and butt. It is mainly women who suffer from cellulite pockets in their skin. But why is it mostly women struggling with the so-called orange-peel skin? Because they have a thinner skin compared to men. Fat cells and collagen fibers are intertwined in a net-like structure in a man’s subcutaneous tissue. Those fibers are parallel in women, making the tissue less stable. Therefore, fat cells can emerge at the surface by passing in between the collagen fibers. And this is what we perceive as uneven “orange-peel skin.” However, men can also show signs of cellulite when suffering from a lack of androgens, the male sex hormones.
REASONS FOR CELLULITE
