Why does it sculpt better? The fact of working the skin when applying the treatment can reactivate the functioning of skin tissue cells and this stimulates micro-circulation, that drainage. The formula's ingredients penetrate better and are more effective.
Gesture it is important to adapt it according to the zones. On the thighs and buttocks, a palpate-roll is ideal because it literally crushes the adipocyte (the fat cell) to help empty it. On the stomach, prefer smoothing movements clockwise to potentiate digestion.

Why does it sculpt better? The effects of active slimming creams operate 6 to 8 hours. If you want a permanent action, it is therefore necessary toapply morning and evening. Also note that the results displayed on the tubes are obtained with two applications per day.
Do I have to alternate a day formula and a night formula? Not necessarily, but know that the night is the moment when the body draws on its reserves. To help him, specifically nocturnal formulas so rely on specific assets, such as draining sericoside or anti-storage algae.
3 / Target the care formula

Gesture : the pros recommend to perform a first scrub a week before the start of treatment and another one the day before. Moisten the skin with lukewarm water so that the dead cells come off even more easily. massage a hazel of exfoliation on each area concerned by making circular movements.
5 / Use a suction cup
Why does it sculpt better? The suction cup reproduces the movement of rolling massage, which allows to restart the cutaneous micro-circulation, to oxygenate the tissues, and to revive the lymphatic flow. She is particularly effective on the buttocks and the inside of the knees. However, be careful not to hurt yourself: always use it with an oil or cream.
Gesture Apply the oil or cream to the affected area, place the suction cup, then pinch on each side to flush the air. Know that the more you pinch, the deeper the massage. Release the sides so that a fold of skin is formed, then drag the suction cup on the skin.
