Myth Busters: Cellulite IS Normal

Myth Busters: Cellulite IS Normal

According to Medical News Today:

“Cellulite can affect both men and women, but it is more common in females, due to the different distributions of fat, muscle, and connective tissue. Between 80 and 90 percent of women may experience cellulite at some point in their lives.”

That makes it pretty normal!!

The exact cause of cellulite is unknown, but it appears to result from an interaction between the connective tissue in the dermatological layer that lies below the surface of the skin, and the layer of fat that is just below it.

Cellulite is not a medical condition, it is purely cosmetic. Many believe that it only affects people who are overweight but that isn’t true.

Anyone can develop cellulite.

Diet and exercise can help but isn’t always the case.

The media wants us to believe that cellulite is not normal so they can get us to buy whatever new cellulite busting product or program they are selling.

The truth is cellulite is normal, it is just the body’s way of storing fat. 

According to the founder and medical director of Union Square Laser Dermatology in NYC, cellulite was depicted in famous paintings and sculptures celebrating the female form, before it became villianized in art and magazines. 

So make peace with your cellulite. Keep exercising and eating healthy because it is good for you, not because it is going to take away the cellulite.
