Cellulite is often classified using three grades:
Grade 1 cellulite sees no clinical symptoms, but a microscopic examination of cells from the area detects underlying anatomical changes.
Grade 2 cellulite requires the skin to show pallor (pastiness), be lower temperature, and have decreased elasticity.
Grade 3 cellulite has visible roughness of the skin (like an orange peel) along with all grade 2 signs.
Cellulite is more common among women than men. If other women in your family have cellulite, there's a good chance you will too.
Other factors that influence how much cellulite you have and how visible it is include:
Lack of physical activity
Total body fat
Thickness and color of your skin
Cellulite tends to be less noticeable on darker skin. If you have light skin and plan to be out in a bathing suit or short shorts, applying a self-tanner may make the bumps and dimples on your thighs less noticeable.
Although there are many products and treatments that promise to get rid of cellulite on thighs and buttocks, there is little evidence that any of them work well - or for long.
Instead start nourish your skin with moisturising totally natural oils and creams such as coconut oil, olive oil or a gorgeous organic moisturizer,massage the areas,avoid too much salt and sugar, drink more water and workout about three times a week and you will reduce your cellulite .

Cellulite is a condition in which the skin appears to have areas with underlying fat deposits, giving it a dimpled, lumpy appearance. It is most noticeable on the buttocks and thighs, and usually occurs after puberty.
