Why does cellulite occur? A lot of women (even slim!) ask their selves when they look in the mirror. Most commonly found on the thighs, butt, stomach and hips.


In these parts of the body in the skin are located sensitive to estrogen receptors responsible for fatty deposits. When fat accumulates too much, it reveals as cellulite, otherwise known as orange peel.

This is why our body accumulates too much fat:

1. Genetics

One of the primary cause of cellulite. Hereditary tendency is passed on in the female line. A careful observation of mother, grandmother, aunt will help you to determine your own conditions. If they are not optimistic, you should fight the cellulite much earlier than it appears. Consider foods and exercises  reducing cellulite.

2. Age - Cellulite and Collagen Loss

Collagen is a protein responsible for skin elasticity and firmness. At the age of 25 (yep!) starts the process of the loss of collagen fibers.The connective tissue becomes too thin and full of holes, and the fat underneath your skin can poke through – this is the cellulite. In this case you need treatments improving blood and lymph circulation and boosting collagen production.

3. Hormonal changes

Hormonal changes leads to excess of fat cells on the hips and belly, because there are receptors sensitive to hormones. Increased  fat particles interfere blood circulation and cause small puffiness – the perfect conditions to cellulite occurs. 

4. Hypothyroidism

In this case, the exchange processes in the body (including the exchange of the fat), are slowed. It leads to excess of fat tissue and then to the cellulite. 

5. Dysfunction of the pancreas

Involve disorders of the digestive tract and liver. The fat exchange is unsettled. Disproportion arises between the processes of collecting the fat and burning the fat. In addition, the huge responsibility for the accumulation of fat cells in the abdomen and hips bears insulin.

6. Disorders of the blood circulation in the fat tissue

Tight pantyhose, tight underwear, and tight clothing can cut off blood circulation. This leads to a small local swelling and constriction of blood vessels and, consequently – to the blood circulation disorders. The tissues suffer from the lack of oxygen and the build-up of toxins. At the end, around the excessive fat particles develops cellulite in a hard fibrous form

7. Disorder of water - sodium exchange

This causes fluid retention, swelling and poor circulation. The effects - as described above.

8. Lack of exercise

Faithful friend of cellulite. Passive muscles causes abnormal circulation of blood and lymph. You may have guessed that cellulite increases with sedentary lifestyle. Consequences - the appearance of edema, the accumulation of toxins in the tissue and … the cellulite.

9. Bad Diet

Pickles, sausages, cakes, pies, chips, greasy meals, milk chocolate, white bread - all of these products are FORBIDDEN in the case of genetic tendency to the cellulite.

By the way, reduce the amount of coffee and sweet drinks, as well as strong alcoholic beverages. When you reach for another cigarette, remember that nicotine destroys vitamin C responsible for the condition of blood vessels and connective tissue. Nicotine causes also deterioration of metabolism.

10. Stress

It causes hormonal disorders and deterioration of  metabolism. Stress is a integral part of our live - you have to “manage” your stress.
