In men fibers of connective tissue that support the structure of adipose tissue by dividing it into the camera and connect it with the skin diagonally and vertically in women.
When the connective tissue fibers are elastic, regardless of structure, they can maintain normal skin appearance. With aging, the normal elasticity of the connective tissue decreases as a result of the aging process and leads to cellulite. This can happen at a younger age if the diet is rich in antioxidants that neutralize the harmful effects of free radicals formed in the body during normal metabolic processes under the influence of ionizing radiation, toxic substances, drugs in inflammatory processes .
Cellulite also depends on the number of connective tissue fibers. If they are less, it will appear earlier and will be more pronounced. Their number is transmitted genetically to offspring, so that cellulite is associated with heredity – if the mother has cellulite, most likely he will appear and daughter.
