Cosmetic products against cellulite are very diverse today. Therapeutic anti-cellulite preparations are sold in various forms and for every taste - creams, gels, lotions, scrubs, oils.
Advertising magazines with cosmetic products promise to get rid of cellulite with the help of this or that cream in a matter of days. Is it possible?
Anti-cellulite cosmetics can only support the skin in a tone, make it more elastic, and it will rather be a preventive effect than a therapeutic one. However, in the early stages of cellulite, such drugs can stop the development of the disease.
The composition of anti-cellulite cosmetics most often includes the following components:
- vitamins and enzymes , silicon, which smooth the skin, promote its renewal
- Caffeine to break down fats
- Essential oils and extracts of medicinal herbs (ginkgo, ivy, tiger grass, horse chestnut, seaweed), which strengthen the blood circulation of the skin and improve metabolism.
We advise paying special attention to cosmetics containing brown seaweed (kelp and fucus). Algae contain all the necessary trace elements for the skin, improve blood circulation in problem areas, remove toxins and excess fats.
It is desirable to carry out the procedure in two stages. First, you should do a peeling of the problem areas of the skin with a special scrub.
Anti-cellulite scrub removes dead cells, which will improve the saturation of the skin with oxygen. Apply the scrub to the skin and gently massage for 5-10 minutes. Excess fluid and fats dissolve and begin to be excreted through the pores of the skin. Wash off the scrub with warm water.
After such a peeling it will be effective to apply anti-cellulite cream to the skin. It has a warming effect, so it dissolves and removes excess liquid from the skin.
It is best to apply the cream method of wrapping: lubricate the skin with the drug, massage the body from the bottom to the top, then wrap yourself in a special film or cellophane. You can cover with a blanket and relax (from 15 minutes to 1.5 hours). After the procedure, you need to remove the excess cream from cellulite with a napkin.
Anti-cellulite oil (as well as lotion) has a preventive effect, tightens the skin, enriches vitamins and prevents the formation of fatty deposits in the cells. Oil (or lotion) is best applied after taking a shower on cleansed skin 1-2 times a day.
