  • Contrary to popular belief, cellulite is not caused by excess weight. It's all in your genes, which explains why even skinny women can have it. Cellulite is caused by clumps of fat cells that push up against surrounding fibrous connective tissue. "The inherent thinning of skin's support structure makes fat cells more obvious," according to *David J. Goldberg, MD, in the September, 2007, issue of Elle Magazine. This is what gives you dimples and what appears to be clumps of fat under your skin.

    Lotions with caffine will force water out of the fat cells and temporarily reduce the appearance of cellulite.  Or you can camoflauge it with a tan.
