Say the word "dimple" out loud - doesn't it sound cute. Dimples on chins and cheeks are always glamorized for how endearing and cute they are. And what's not to love?! These little crevasses make the skin look like it's smiling.
The positive connotation that the term "dimples" holds can/should also apply to the dimples that appear on the bums, legs, bellies and arms of over 90% of women; these dimples are otherwise known as cellulite. Cellulite should also be viewed as an endearing and cute little dimple that may come in larger packs around the body.
Whether you love it, hate it, embrace it or you are trying to get rid of it, it's important to know what cellulite is. Below, we will be doing a deep dive into all things cellulite.
What is Cellulite?
Let’s break it down. The external presentation of cellulite on the body can appear as dimple-like indents on the skin. The dimples form from fat cells beneath your skin. A quick side note, everyone has these fat cells no matter what body shape or type you are.
Under your skin, you have these fibrous connective cords that connect the skin to underlying muscles. In between these cords, there are fat cells. As the fat cells accumulate, they push up against the fibrous connective cords which you guessed, results in cellulite.
How to reduce the appearance of cellulite?
Again, there is nothing wrong with having it, loving it, or wanting to get rid of it. You should do whatever makes YOU feel good about your body. If you want to just soften the appearance of your cellulite, you've come to the right place!
