kulit seakan-akan kulit oren, selulit
Explanation:
orange-peel here is a noun that is used as an adjective to the noun skin. Both peel and skin are translated as kulit in Malay, therefore, it is unnatural to repeat the term 'kulit' before one another. Thus, I use orange-peel as a simile - skin that resembles the orange peel.
