There are many factors that can cause cellulite, including hormonal, genetic and lifestyle factors. Continue reading to learn more about the 3 common causes of cellulite.
Hormones play a dominant role in the formation of cellulite. Estrogen may be the important hormone in the development of cellulite. However, there has been no reliable clinical evidence to support such a claim. Other hormones, including insulin, the catecholaminesadrenaline and noradrenaline, thyroid hormones, and prolactin, are all believed to participate in the development of cellulite. Source: Wikipedia
Certain genes are required for cellulite development. Genes may predispose an individual to particular characteristics associated with cellulite, such as gender, race, slow metabolism, distribution of fat just underneath the skin, and circulatory insufficiency. Source: MedicalNewsToday
Even though cellulite is fat, having it doesn’t mean you are overweight. Even thin people can have cellulite. If you are overweight, however, losing weight may reduce cellulite.
Being a woman makes you more likely to develop cellulite. Genes also play an important role. If other women in your family have cellulite, there’s a good chance you will too. Other factors that influence the amount of cellulite you have and how visible it is include:
– Poor diet
– Fad dieting
– Slow metabolism
– Lack of physical activity
– Total body fat
– The thickness and colour of your skin Source: Boots
