While we may think cellulite is only found in people who are overweight, Dr. Nancy Snyderman explains that even skinny women can experience cellulite. So what is cellulite? Simply put, cellulite is comprised of fat cells that push through the fibers that hold your skin to your muscle. While there is no cure, losing weight and cutting out fats from your diet can help. However, genetics and estrogen can play a role in the development of cellulite so take Dr. Snyderman’s advice and give yourself a break!
