9 in 10 women have cellulite
9 in 10 women have cellulite on their body. In itself, cellulite is a cosmetic rather than medical concern. Apart from its unwanted appearance, it doesn't pose any health risk.
What is Cellulite?
Cellulite is a fat deposit that causes the skin to dimple with an orange peel appearance. It is a very common condition among women, even more so in women with overweight.
Why Women is more prone to cellulite than men?
While men have more muscles, women have more fat in their body. Due to hormones that operate the body, men tend to store excess fat around the belly. In women, the excess fat is normally stored in various parts of the body like thighs, hips and buttocks. Due to the difference in the fat distribution, women are more prone to cellulite than men.
