Orange peel skin is a very common aesthetic manifestation in women. The irregular appearance of the skin is a reflection of cellulite, which originates at a deeper level and is characterized by the accumulation of fat and fluid around the cells, especially in the hips and abdomen.
Cellulite, despite being an aesthetic concern for many women, we must accept it as something normal, especially because sometimes the causes that originate it are hormonal or genetic and are not directly related to our habits. This does not mean that we abandon ourselves, since cellulite is a progressive process that worsens if we do not stop it. That is why we are going to see how we can follow a diet that helps us not to favor its development.
In this article, we will show you a balanced diet with cleansing fruits and vegetables that will help reduce cellulite. In addition, we will give you tips on how to change certain eating habits to improve your figure and fight cellulite effectively.
