We have bad news about cellulite (does anyone ever have good news?) Apparently all women have the ability to develop cellulite and you can watch it creep onto your thighs like fat wielding ivy in four stages.

The sharing of this information comes after an American TV presenter, Maria Menounos, revealed she had 'pre-cellulite' in an interview. This fear mongering sent women in America into a panic.

Thankfully the knowledgeable beauty folk at Into The Gloss did some digging to investigate was this even a thing?

They explain that pre-cellulite skin is just dimple and cellulite free skin, but the The Dermal Institute does identify four stages to cellulite.

Are you ready for this?

Stage 1
"Structural changes occur to the cells, including breaking down the skin's dermis, and fat cells swell to twice or three times their original size."

Stage 2
Hello dimples as "fat cells engorge further and clumping is more pronounced, pushing the much-needed blood vessels further away."

Stage 3 & 4
The cellulite becomes more pronounced in the final stages, setting up camp on your ass. By the end of stage four, it is game over for your youth.

The research continues that all women are born with the cellulite cell structure (men get off scott free. Those cheeky, no child birth giving swines). This means that all women have the capacity to have cellulite (and 90% of women do get it) - but it is down to lifestyle choices and genetics whether it actually happens.
