Unlike its scary name, cellulite is basically just fat deposits under the skin. The reason why cellulite looks uneven and bumpy is because it is a result of fat tissue pressing against connective tissues on the area. Some of the factors that contribute to cellulite formation include lack of exercise, dehydration, poor diet, slow metabolic rate and sometime it is hereditary.
Although it is not harmful and in no way an indicator of obesity, cellulite is not very aesthetically pleasing. Hence there are aesthetic treatment that can help solve your cellulite issues at a shorter time frame.
