Question

Anon asked:

What is cellulite - I can find lots of claimed 'cures', but no information about what it actually is ?

Answer

Cellulite is nothing more than just a localised collection of fat. The dimpled appearence is produced by the fat bulging out between the fibrous tissue and is merely a reflection on the normal female fat distribution.
