My body is what people term a classic pear, boasting a small upper torso with huge ass and thighs. Life ain’t always fair. *sigh*
I think huge ass and thighs are things I can live with, but the cellulite that comes with it almost always makes me cry. Some people are fat, but their skin is still firm and smooth. I’m not that fat, but I’ve got tons of cellulite. The dimpled appearance of the skin makes me feel really conscious about how others will look at me.
Yepp, that orange peel skin is every girl’s nightmare.
Susy got me a lifesaver gift two Christmas ago, and I’ve been hooked ever since. The Clarins Tonic Body Treatment Oil is my absolute holy grail when it comes slimming and cellulite treatment. I have used 6 bottles so far and can’t get enough of it!
What in the world is cellulite?
According to WebMD, cellulite is nothing more than normal fat beneath the skin! The fat appears bumpy because it pushes against connective tissue, causing the skin above it to pucker. Cellulite isn’t harmful but many people would like to get rid of it because of the way it looks!
Don’t be judgemental and think that only fat people get cellulite alright… you get them whether you’re fat or skinny! Other factors like poor diet, fad dieting, slow metabolism, lack of physical activity, hormone changes, dehydration, total body fat and thickness and color of your skin etc can determine if you have cellulite too.
I’m definitely guilty of lack of physical activity. I think most office ladies are.
Cure for cellulite
Cellulite has no cure at the moment, but there are some methods that works to improve them. Weight loss, creams, massage, and laser machines at the doctor’s office. There’s also a surgical treatment for cellulite called Cellulaze that’s used by Plastic surgeons but that one cost like thousands of dollars. Not everyone can afford it.
Clarins Body Treatment Oil
Upon opening the cap to the glass jar, it’s like entering a magical garden full of herbs and flowers. A really peculiar scent which I have grown to love over time. The scent is invigorating and energizing, giving an immediate lift and takes the stress right away.
The oil texture is thicker than your usual face oils, but surprisingly not oily on the skin once it has been fully absorbed. I massage this in an upwards motion, from my ankles upwards to my hips, and leave it on overnight to work its magic.
I seen amazing results within one month of diligence. The cellulite is improved and my thighs and hips are firmer. My lower body is also less prone to water retention after doing a daily massage with the oil. Definitely recommend this oil to pear-shaped ladies who are finding it hard to slim down your bottom half and are not that keen on exercising.
The Clarins Body Treatment Oil comes in Tonic and Anti-Eau and retails at S$80 for 100ml at all Clarins counters and Sephora Singapore
