Why Do I Have Cellulite and What Can I do About It?

Some common (although unsavory) names include orange-peel skin, hail damage, cottage cheese, and even the mattress phenomenon. A few interesting facts about cellulite:

In 2009 a scale that ranks cellulite in three different grades was published. Grade one (mild) classifies the condition as an “orange peel” appearance with a slight sagging, accompanied by between one and four shallow depressions in the skin. Grade two (moderate) is classified by a “cottage cheese” appearance with moderate sagging, accompanied by five to nine medium-depth depressions in the skin. Grade three (severe) is classified by a “mattress” appearance, accompanied by severe sagging and ten or more deep depressions in the skin.
