Chiara’s Reviews: Bye Bye Cellulite with the World Of Beauty box
* Angelic background choir *
I present to you in all its beauty this “treasure chest” of salvation signed World Of Beauty, which contains within it everything necessary to fight the enemy of all of us women, that we would like not to drag ourselves behind this summer: the much hated cellulite, specifically for this kit we talk about FIBROSA CELLULITE, one of the most critical types of all.
Before showing you the box in all its beauty, let’s take a brief look at the various types of cellulite (because yes, not only does one have to endure it, but we can be “carriers” of various stages and types depending on multiple factors that come into play). We first need to specify what cellulite is and why women are more likely to suffer than men.
Cellulite is nothing but an alteration of the panniculus (adipose connective tissue present below the skin) caused by an excessive accumulation of fat in the fat cells. This inflammatory process causes the swelling of the cells to make them cover a volume ten times greater than normal; the collagen fibers are compressed causing the formation of nodules and swellings, generating the so-called “orange peel skin”. The areas most subject to cellulite are thighs, buttocks and hips.
Why are men not subjected to cellulite? Male fibers are structured differently than female fibers. In humans, the collagen fibers are intertwined to form a sort of lattice, unlike the woman where the collagen fibers are parallel to each other, thus making the passage of fat cells on the surface easier. Furthermore, in man there are both estrogen and progesterone, female hormones, which slow down the elimination of liquids, thus generating retention. Alcohol abuse, smoking, physical inactivity, improper nutrition, hormonal problems, genetic factors and the habit of wearing tight clothing may also contribute to the formation of cellulite.
Let’s analyze together the most frequent types of cellulite.
COMPACT CELLULITE: also known as solid cellulite, it represents the most common type of cellulite among the young, it settles mainly between the hips and thighs, between the back and the inside of the knees. You can notice the orange peel only if you compress the affected part with your fingers (as shown in the image). Its “development” period can already come from adolescence. It presents itself with some “dimpled” features, but the skin remains compact and does not change position with the movement of the body. It increases the sensitivity of the area to the touch or even in rare cases, it can happen that it causes pain. It affects those women with good physical shape and who present toned and active muscles. The areas affected by this type of cellulite are more prone to stretch marks and bruising
EDEMATOUS CELLULITE: edematous cellulite represents the first stage of water retention and affects any type of woman without distinction, an accomplice may be an unhealthy lifestyle or genetic predisposition. Liquids and toxins “retained” in the subcutaneous cells, stagnate for a long time favoring the formation of real edema. Usually located on the thighs and buttocks, it makes the areas appear swollen and often painful
SOFT CELLULITE: is a type of cellulite that affects women who were previously subjected to constant physical activity but who, due to various causes or sudden changes in weight, adopt a rather sedentary lifestyle. Its second name is also flaccid cellulite and presents itself with the appearance of mobile sclerotic nodules especially located on thighs and arms. Unlike the solid one, the soft cellulite invades large areas, almost freely moving between muscles and skin, has a great mobility and can be lifted from the muscle, being this detached, hanging and dug into folds and gelatinous nodules. One of the main causes of soft cellulite is above all a drastic diet or the abuse of diuretic pills.
FIBROUS CELLULITE: second stage of edematous cellulite, characterized by an important lymphatic stagnation, more visible when compressing the skin (overlapping of the legs or wearing tight clothing). The excessive formation of connective tissue imprisons the adipocytes, swelling and hardening the skin, to create small palpable nodules. Compared to edematous, if compressed it can cause a lot of pain. It is also recognized by a change in the color of the skin when it is compressed, which takes purplish tones and settles more on the thighs and buttocks.
BONUS- SCLEROTIC CELLULITE: third stage of edematous cellulite, corresponds to the chronicization of the two previous stages. It occurs when there is a lack or absence of containment treatment of the two previous cases of edematous and fibrous cellulite. Recognizable because always visible, even without compression of the skin. Causes impaired lymphatic circulation, strong water retention and strong tissue stress. They lead to the enlargement of the fat cells up to a volume 10 times larger, to the creation of thickening of the fibrous tissues in addition to a huge bundle of fibers and nodules. Other symptoms are thickening of the skin and a colder and/or more rigid area.
This kit contains three products to be used in synergy with each other and with constancy, which promise to best counter (perhaps even make disappear!) Cellulite, in this case fibrous cellulite.
SLIM SHAPE BODY SCRUB 500ML
SLIM SHAPE 1 ULTRA DRAINING-LIPIOLYTIC FLUID PRO FORMAT 250ML
FAT BODY CREAM 100ML TRAVEL FRIENDLY – LIPOLITIC DRAINING CREAM
In the beauty bag, very comfortable to carry with you and with a beautiful blue color (a color that gives me so much joy and desire for summer!), I will test for you all three products for a total of 28 days (a month or so) and see if the situation will improve as the kit promises to do. I state that I am a person who has had numerous problems over the last 10 years; I have always suffered from a kind of allergy that has visibly made my skin full of imperfections (“chicken skin”), with cosmetic defects similar to folliculitis; for this alone I am so ashamed that I almost never show (or as little as possible … sometimes even in the summer I prefer to wear long pants and skirts so as not to show my legs!) legs and arms, which are the areas most affected by this aesthetic defect similar to a strong allergic reaction/folliculitis.
The increase and decrease in weight fluctuating over an average of 10/15 kg, hormonal dysfunctions (I suffer from polycystic ovary) and a not too constant diet, combined with alternating physically active phases with rather sedentary phases, have left their aftermath, all well recorded on my cellulite. From analysis with the company that kindly helped me to identify my stage of imperfection, I present perhaps the most serious form of cellulite: edematous-fibrous cellulite in the third stage, so it means that I have recently entered the sclerotic phase and I absolutely must try to improve my health (because let’s remember, cellulite is not only an aesthetic obstacle but also something more serious).
With a lot of embarrassment and hoping you don’t get scared, I show you in a collage my starting situation:
You can in fact notice the nodules evident on the sides of the thighs and under the buttocks even without the help of the compression of the skin, as some areas instead may be different also in color, where in some places the skin begins to look thicker, fortunately still not cold but sometimes I notice very painful pangs typical of fibrous cellulite, even without the need for me to compress the affected area.
The products that I will use specifically and test for you are:
-SLIM SHAPE BODY SCRUB 500ML
Body scrub suitable for all skin types, contains a base of essential oils and tropical salts. It is the first product to be used because it prepares the skin for subsequent treatments more effectively.
TROPICAL OCEANIC SEA SALTS, authentic thalassotherapy active ingredients. Thanks to its osmotic properties, it favors the disposal of excess liquids through work on the lymphatic circulation and helps reduce skin thickening.
AROMA COMPLEX PERFECT ESSENTIAL OILS, that is to say the most pure complex of Bitter Orange, Cypress, Rosemary Verbenone and Lavender, all known for their tonic, antiseptic, draining properties, improvement of lymphatic and general circulatory stasis. On an emotional level it contrasts depression and hypotonia.
Vegan product, not tested on animals and with natural essential oils.
– SLIM SHAPE 1 ULTRA DRAINING FLUID – LIPOLITICO FORMATO PRO 250ML
Activator fluid to be used as a second step to effectively combat the formation of fibrous and fatty cellulite; it has a lipolytic function, reduces the ability of pre-adipocytes (fat cells) to retain additional fats inside them, reducing their volume. The lipolytic action reduces the “mattress” appearance of the skin if associated with the third step of the Fat Body Cream.
Vegan product not tested on animals, contains very pure natural essential oils.
– FAT BODY CREAM 100ML TRAVEL FRIENDLY, LIPOLITIC DRAINING CREAM
Inside it contains extracts of White Birch and Ceylon Cinnamon, it consists of a cream to be used as a third step in the local treatment of fibrous cellulite (hard and cold). Spices known since ancient times for their stimulating properties of cellular and anti-bacterial metabolism.
CINNAMON OF CEYLON extracted from the bark with natural methods. Rich in phenols with anti-bacterial, stimulating, warming and tonic properties.
BETULLA BIANCA very purifying natural titrated extract, helps to counteract and reduce lymphatic retention, among the first causes of cellulite formation.
CYPRESS ESSENTIAL OIL extracted with the natural steam flow method, an essential element to stimulate the circulatory system, a good vasoconstrictor and always used in traditional Mediterranean medicine even in the case of joint pain.
Product not tested on animals, with certified organic ingredients and pure natural essential oils.
I started the treatment on May 1st and I must say that, from the first impressions, I liked all the products and my skin reacted quite well. The scrub smells a lot of orange and the microgranules of sea salt are very thin and delicate on the skin, also thanks to the combo with the essential oils that moisturize and reactivate the microcirculation. The scrub can be used in two ways: in the shower once a week on damp skin, massaging as much as possible (I try to get to a laying of about 10/15 minutes) with circular movements, or twice a week before showering with a pack that must remain in place for about 30 minutes, then applying the Fat Body Cream.
The method I use is that of a wet skin massage in the shower once a week, to allow me to use all the steps.
The Slim Shape 1 is rather liquid and has a slow release and slow absorption (so you will need a lot of patience … !!!), it has a strong enough odor but I don’t mind at all (it vaguely reminds me of the same smell of the syrup that they always gave me as a child when I had a fever) and for a good half hour the feeling of stickiness could remain on the affected area. I use it twice a day, morning and evening, before applying the Fat Body Cream, which instead is denser and with a strong smell of mint. When the products begin to work, you may feel a pleasant sensation of freshness over the entire treated area (peppermint effect).
My cellulite as previously shown has a very advanced stage, so I will try to be as constant as possible and fight laziness just to be able to compare the final result with you. I hope it can reduce the retention at least in an acceptable way, because in the last period I have found strong pains similar to pangs just in the areas with greater cellulite. I will update you with new photographs at the end of the treatment the first week of June.
See you soon and … we cross the creams 💚
