Diet poor in water and rich in saturated fat, carbohydrates, carbonated beverages, sugar, alcohol and salt favors the dehydration of the body and consequently fluid retention and cellulitis.

Lack of physical activity is one of the main factors causing cellulitis.

Hormonal fluctuations
Occurrence of cellulitis is common among persons taking contraceptives or during pregnancy.

Circulatory disorders
In cases of blood and lymph disorders, e.g. spider veins or lymphedema, the occurrence of cellulitis is common and for that the doctor recommends ultrasound examination.
