Cellulite – what is it?

So what is cellulite and why are 80-90% of women prone to it? Lucy Herring, senior skincare specialist at VOYA – the luxury organic skin and body care experts from the sea explains that cellulite is caused by fat showing through the skin: ‘Cellulite is persistent fat that causes dimpling of the skin,’ says Lucy. ‘It is formed when fat expands and is pushed up against the top layers of the skin, creating a dimpled surface.’

And it’s your lower body that tends to be the hardest hit she continues: ‘Cellulite typically occurs in women on their hips and thighs.’ And there are different types of cellulite, too. Who knew? ‘Adipose cellulite is an orange peel effect on the skin, but oedematous cellulite is fluid retention and soft dimpling,’ says Lucy. It also comes in different grades!

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

Grade 2: No visible cellulite yet 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.
