Do you Know the Difference Between Stretch MArks and Cellulite?

whew this are just beauty tips peeps.. hehehe.. i just want to share what ive read in the magazine i bought this morning.
here's the differences between the two:

cellulite ----- is fat and fibrous tissue in the subcutaneous layer of the skin that gives off the appearance of lumps or dimples along the thighs, hips, buttocks, and sometimes stomachs. more women that men are prone to cellulite, making scientist believe it might be hormonal and it appears on the skin of both thin and fat women.

stretch marks --- are a form of scarring usually linked to pregnancy, obesity, bodybuilding and to a lesser extent puberty. they appear when skin is overstretched, disrupting, and normal production of collagen. they commonly appear first as lighter color. in darker women, they may actually stay darker than the skin tone.
