Why Most Women Have Cellulite—and How to Get Rid of It

If you’ve caught yourself examining your legs and wondering why you have cellulite, you’re not alone. The truth is, cellulite affects 80 to 98 percent of women! Though you’re not the only one dealing with these pesky pockets of skin, we’re sure you want some answers.

Why Most Women Have Cellulite

What Is Cellulite?

Contrary to popular belief, cellulite is not excess fat and having it does not imply you are fat. Cellulite is caused by the fat directly under your skin (subcutaneous fat), which everyone has to some degree! These layers of fat are held in place by connective fibers between your skin and muscle. Unfortunately, this fat can push through the fibers, which is what’s causing your skin to look dimpled.

So why does cellulite show up on more women than men? Men actually have thicker fibers under their skin—and more of them—preventing their skin from dimpling the way women’s skin does. Unlike women, whose fibers lay vertically, men's fibers are also arranged in a grid formulation, which prevents their layers of fat from “falling through.” And while you may have heard myths claiming that lumpy skin has to do with diet, exercise or age—that’s not the truth. No matter your body size, shape or type, you cannot fully prevent cellulite.
