The Best Anti Cellulite Treatments 0
Almost every women from different walks of life, at some point in their adulthood, has to challenge with cellulite. When it comes to cellulite and stretch marks, there is no one-size-fit-all solution to the problem, but some tried and true diet, exercises and products that work wonders to reduce the appearance of uneven texture.
Cellulite (medically referred to as edematous fibrosclerotic panniculopathy) refers to the manifest of extra uneven fat in form of dimpled skin that usually appears on hips and thighs and is more common in women versus in men. When fat deposits unevenly within and around the connective tissues underneath the skin, cosmetic characteristic of skin changes and cellulite formation starts.
It is a no-brainer that healthy lifestyle is the key to excess body fat reduction, and redistribution, and on the other hand, a proven pillar of healthy lifestyle is regular physical activities and consumption of healthy food and drinks, which seems to be more elusive than ever in our fast paced modern life. Hitting the treadmill every now and then or swapping candy for carrots, is undoubtedly beneficial, but alone doesn't always lead to thinner thighs, and that’s why we often need some fast acting tricks to catalyze the process.
Searching for a product that actually works is not easy, there are so many creams out there, and when it comes to getting rid of stubborn fat, half of them make no difference. I have tried many different creams, serums, and lotions and recommended some to clients of mine, and after all found 3 creams that deliver the best overall result for the price.
1- Clarins Body Lift Cellulite Control
This Luxurious cream is one of my top choices among all different cellulite creams out there.
It is easy to apply, dries quickly, and smells really good plus it is very reasonably priced and has a nice combination of ingredients. This cream works really well over a longer term period, and that is the main reason that I prefer it over the rest. Women that I suggested this cream to, have reported smoother and better looking skin, after a few weeks of using this lotion. This innovative body treatment is powered by Quince Leaf extract, that helps reduce the look of cellulite with targeted refining and reshaping actions. After trying dozens and dozens of different cellulite creams, I have witnessed the overall best results with this one!
2- Murad Firm and Tone Serum and the Cream
Murad serum might not smell as good as most body products but it works good on body dimples .This firming serum contains caffeine, retinol and cayenne pepper, helping induce body fat burning (thermogenesis). The gel based serum should be applied to the affected areas twice a day after cleansing. Some women prefer keeping it in the refrigerator, since the cold helps firm and tighten the skin on contact. If you apply the Murad body firming cream right after the serum, you get the double benefits of firming and hydrating that leads to faster results. I got these creams as a gift and I loved the result but this cream is quite expensive and applying two creams twice a day is time consuming, but gain the result is rewarding.
3- Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream
At first glance, you may assume this firming cream is booty-exclusive, however, the cream works to tighten any area you desire. The secret is Guaraná, a native Amazonian plant comprised of the most potent form of caffeine on Earth, harmonizes with a blend of cupuaçu butter, antioxidant powerhouse açaí, and coconut oil to form this fast-acting cream that smooths skin surface and adds subtle Brazilian glow. I have not fully consumed my first trial yet but I’m already in love with the texture, smell and feeling of this luscious firming cream.
The conclusion is that these creams are very fun products to try. After trying so many disappointing products, I can finally announce these as my favorite cellulite treatments.

Magic of Facial Mists 0
Do you remember when you were a kid running to find a water sprinkler in a hot summer day? Facial mist is the grown-up version for spritzing your overheated skin without running around someone’s lawn. You may need to get a better understanding of why you need it and how to use one correctly.
Most of us would moisturize our skin twice; once in the A.M. and once again before going to bed, and then call it a day. But what if it’s not enough and we need more? That's what women have been taught in Korea, where practicing good skin care is practically a national sport! Instead of applying moisturizer morning and night, Korean women are all about 24/7 hydration. Sounds serious, right? This is where face mists come in.
Facial mists are the skin toners in shape of spray.They are convenient in spray form, and same as toners they restore skin's pH balance after cleansing, and increase hydration levels when followed by moisturizer on still-damp skin. But of course there is more into it. A good facial mist can keep your makeup looking shiny throughout the day and helps to keep your skin hydrated and glowing. For oily skin, facial mists can help balance out your oil production and keep your skin feeling fresh. I personally create my own facial mists which include essential oils, such as calming lavender or rose. Just an empty spray bottle can be used to store your custom made mist.
The concept of facial mists isn't new but new facial mist products have advanced to much more than a water spray! Some of the products are combined with serums, multivitamins, aloe and essential oils. Mists are also an easy way to improve the radiance of your skin. This toning and moisturizing facts of mists help enhance dry, flaky skin. Some type of mists even go further and contains anti-aging ingredients, that help improve wrinkles and fine lines which is much more than what we always thought about mists.
Just look it this way; how many times a day we need to drink a glass of water ,our outer surface of skin is also constantly in need of water and the fastest way to address this need is spritzing over and over. I personally like any type of facial mists, and have some favorites too, however, in my opinion purified water can be the best and safest toner for our thirsty skin. For someone like me allergic to a long list of things, with extremely sensitive skin, a good spray mist is a gem.
Kiss Me Nano Facial Mist is an amazing tool to be used on the skin. This tool should be filled with purified water and it can be carried in a small purse during the day. With this rechargeable spray mist you don’t have to carry a heavy spray bottle in your bag around. You can use it throughout the day and you can easily empty the spray tank if need.This is one of my favorite products I picked on Cosmoprof trade show in Hong Kong last year and I would recommend it to be used for a healthier, shinier and happier skin.
Do I Really Need to Use Face Masks? 0
I am obsessed with face masks .They’re fun to use and easy to apply with great and fast results. My favorite thing about applying a good face mask is the feeling of refreshed and hydrated skin after a single use.
The frequently asked question is if everyone needs to use face masks ? And the answer is absolutely yes. Face masks are the perfect skin care treatment to help you with your skin care concerns. The right face mask can help tighten the skin, remove excess oils and help to minimize the appearance of your pores. It is also an excellent way to help pull out impurities. Another advantage of wearing a face mask is the feeling of being pampered at a spa but at the comfort of your own home.
There are different skin care regimen but they all include daily use and weekly use products. You can use a face mask once a week, or you can use it more than that depending on your skin condition and concerns, and fortunately most face masks are unisex. If you think face masks are only popular among women, you are probably wrong.
Reasons to Use Face Masks:Detoxifying
We know daily cleansing helps to clean your skin by removing dirt, oil, makeup and pollutant from the surface of the skin. But did you know the correct masking takes the cleansing process to a whole new level. Only a good facial mask can help to detoxify impurities that hide underneath the top layers of the epidermis. Some people say that their skin goes through a “detoxing” when they use a mask, because they actually notice the changes in the skin while this is happening. Masks are fantastic at providing this deeper cleansing process, which results to an improvement in the beautifying of pores that you can deeply see and feel. Don’t you love that?Luxurious Feeling
Face masks not only make the overall appearance of your skin perfect, but also can genuinely be therapeutic and relaxing. When they’re soaked with aromatic essential oils like peppermint and rosemary, a face mask can lift your spirit by revitalizing your sensation. Using a face mask should be treated as a luxury. Prepare a bit of “me” time when you decide to give yourself a mask. Draw a hot bath, light some candles and let the magic of the mask begin to work. You’ll be melted into a wonderful, sensory episode that will not only relax the mind and spirit but will also leave you with fabulous looking skin.Glowing and Toning the skin
Usually masks contain more active ingredients compared to face creams in order to stimulate blood circulation. The process of the mask drying on your skin and beginning to harden, along with the removal of the mask, causes an expansion in the blood vessels in your skin. This ensures an overall improvement in skin tone. Your skin will feel softer and look smoother, and the best part is you’ll notice a radiant glow and more refreshed texture. So, close your eyes, feel the tingle, breathe in the minty aroma and wait for your skin to becomes glowing .
