Cellulite (orange peel skin): Causes and treatments

  1. An orange peel skin is a condition in which lumps and dimples have formed in the skin (especially the buttocks and thighs). This gives the skin a dimpled, bumpy appearance reminiscent of the appearance of an orange. The skin condition occurs when fat deposits penetrate through the connective tissue under the skin. Several risk factors are known for this, including lifestyle factors such as smoking and an unhealthy diet. Various treatments are available, but in most patients the effect is only temporary. Some lifestyle changes also usually reduce the incidence of orange peel skin. Finally, the relatively harmless condition only causes cosmetic problems but no other health problems.


  1. Some people confuse cellulite with cellulite. However, this is not the same, because cellulite is a subcutaneous bacterial skin infection that causes fever and pain

Epidemiology and risk factors of cellulite

  1. Sex


  1. Cellulite is a harmless but often cosmetically disturbing condition that causes dimples and dents in the skin. Often the orange peel skin develops on the buttocks, thighs and / or hips and sporadically also on the arms and / or knees. Mild cellulite is only visible when the patient squeezes the affected skin, such as the thighs. More severe cellulite causes the skin to have a creased and bumpy appearance with areas of mounds and dimples (the appearance of an orange)

Healthy Lifestyle Treatment

  1. An orange peel skin does not result from the intake of toxins (poisons), but a healthy lifestyle does improve the condition. This means that it is best for people to limit their intake of fat, carbohydrates and salt, but they should take in enough fiber (healthy and balanced diet)
