The orange peel peel and the effect of estrogen

“Orange Peel”, as it is called today; this is often thought to be a consequence of obesity; this is a misconception. Many people who are of average weight or even underweight suffer from cellulite. It is a phenomenon that mainly occurs in women because one of the main factors contributing to cellulite is estrogen. For this reason, young women often think that cellulite is part of the onset of puberty; cellulite is often made worse by taking birth control pills that contain high estrogen content.
