Whilst exercising has helped tremendously with the firmness of my skin I do still find that I need an extra push. I know a number of “beauties” who are against cellulite creams and say they do nothing but I have actually found that they do work. Especially for the initial stages of cellulite or poor lymphatic drainage. For three weeks now I’ve been using Clarins Lift Cellulite Control in conjunction with regular exercise and have seen a vast improvement.
I still use and swear by ELANCYL Cellu-Slim night cream and dry brushing. I use a dry brush from The Body Shop. However, I needed something extra. Clarins Body Lift Cellulite Control (R550 for 200ml) uses an unique combination of active ingredients, protected by four patent applications:
-Extracts of Celosia Cristata, Baccharis and Aquatic Mint slow down the appearance of new cellulite and help to maintain previous slimming results.
-The caffeine in extracts of Blue Button Flower (Scabious), Geranium and Cangzhu helps to minimize even the most persistent cellulite.
-Escine (a molecule obtained from Indian Chestnuts): optimizes the draining effect with the Self-Massage Body Contouring Method.
-Sunflower phospholipids and Hazelnut oil boost hydration.
The Clarins Self-Massage Body Contoruing Method is something I’m going to use when applying any body cream or lotion. It really helps with ensuring that the actives in the product can be well absorbed. See the video below:
