With the help of modern day technology, we now know that cellulite is primarily caused by the simultaneous pulling of skin fibers just beneath your skin’s outer layer and the pushing of bulging fats trapped in these fibers.

Listed below are just some of the probable causes of cellulite, including the dimples appearing on your belly:

  • Genes
  • Sex
  • Drastic weight loss and weight gain
  • Starvation
  • Poor diet
  • Lack of exercise

Dehydration, chronic stress, lack of sufficient sleep, hormonal fluctuations, and pregnancy are other probable causes of cellulite.
