Why do I have cellulite on my thighs?

The reason so many women, even slim women, get cellulite on their hips and thighs is due to the female hormone estrogen. The hormone naturally makes women more prone to acquire and storing fat in this area. What's more, is women store more of their fat just under the skin's surface; whereas men store their fat internally - underneath their muscles. 

As women become older, surface skin becomes thinner and less elastic, and the dimpling becomes more exaggerated. It's therefore a natural characteristic of the female body - and while it may be distressing for these women who have it - it does not cause any physical harm. 
It is worth noting that the dimpling effect may be made worse by sunbathing, since excessive exposure to sunlight is known to cause the skin to lose its elasticity.

Keeping cellulite from forming those ugly deposits should always be every woman's top priority. So apart from avoiding too much sun exposure, follow these tips to keep cellulite at bay:

  • Eat lots of fresh raw vegetables - especially green ones
  • Drink plenty of good clean water
  • Exercise regularly ie. by walking, cycling, yoga etc.
  • Use Celluvac daily

Foods to Avoid:

  • Fatty foods like meat, dairy products
  • Ice cream
  • Slap chips/deep-fried chips
  • Packet chips (crisps)
  • Biscuits
  • Cakes
  • Sweets and chocolates
