how cellulite starts

‘Adipose cellulite is the firm cellulite, orange peel effect on loose skin,’ says Haus. ‘Oedematous cellulite is fluid retention, soft cellulite often on loose skin. And fibrotic cellulite is hard, compact cellulite with orange peel effect

According to Haus, there are also four different grades of cellulite:

Grade 1. No visible cellulite, even when the skin is pinched.

Grade 2. No visible cellulite when lying down or standing. An orange peel texture can be seen when the skin is pinched.

Grade 3. Cellulite is visible when standing, but may disappear when lying down.

Grade 4. Visible cellulite when standing and lying down.

95 per cent of women have a type of cellulite somewhere on their body. ‘Even skinny people get cellulite,’ he says. ‘And cellulite is often hereditary, so it’s likely your family members will be suffering from the same problem.’

Cellulite forms in areas with the least circulation so it means that without activity, it’s very hard to budge,’ he says. ‘Everyday energising movements and skin warming exercises will have you saying goodbye to dimpled skin if you are consistent with it.’ Haus recommends running, swimming and a brisk walking. ‘These are the best form of exercises for increasing blood circulation and loosening the fat tissues from those hard to budge areas
