Your Cellulite Questions, Answered
The GeneticsDoes cellulite increase with age?
A. Not necessarily. After puberty, anyone can get cellulite. But as you age your skin loses elasticity and you're likely to reduce muscle and gain fat, all of which will increase cellulite.If your mom has it, are you doomed as well?
A. Genetics definitely plays a role, both in how likely your body is to store fat and how much the bands of tissue pull down on the fat. If you stay fit, you're more likely to have less fat on your body and more muscle, which means you'll develop less cellulite.
