Cellulite isn’t your fault. It’s just a natural part of women’s biology.
Most women will have cellulite in their lifetime–about 9 out of 10 women, in fact. That means your tough workouts and healthy eating habits are fantastic for your fitness and overall wellness—but won’t do much to reduce your cellulite. If you really want to reduce cellulite, you need to understand what’s behind those signature dimples.
- Cellulite isn’t fat.
- It isn’t caused by what, or how much, you eat.
- Or because you aren’t exercising enough.
