Most people may not know this but stress can significantly increase the risk of getting cellulite or worsen the condition for those who already have it. There are two major culprits in this particular case namely catecholamine and cortisol which are naturally occurring hormones in the body. The more stressed you are, the more of these two hormones your body will produce. During periods of heightened anxiety, adrenaline production in the body also increases. All these hormones have been linked to increased cellulite production and generally accumulation of fat in areas one wouldn’t want to have fat accumulate.
