Contrary to popular belief, cellulite is a skin problem, not caused by fat. It doesn’t have anything to do with weight, it is caused by fatty deposits of dimpled skin. This can happen on bodies of any size. Cellulite consists of fat cells that reside within the skin and they can’t be burned by the body, so diet and exercise won’t affect the area. Most cellulite cases are found in females over the age of 35. Many doctors suggest that hormones and genetics play a large role in cellulite.
