What causes cellulite

Weight and fat are not factors in cellulite. It can appear on women of any weight or fitness level. Although cellulite appears on the surface of your skin, it forms below. Under your skin there are fibrous bands referred to as ‘septae’ that attach your skin to the muscle below. There is a natural layer of fat that surrounds those bands. When those bands tighten irregularly, the fat bulges out and creates the bumpy texture on your skin.
