When combating the "orange peel" can be used as a purchase of anti-cellulite products, and time-tested products of home production. For example, a remarkable result is observed when using cocoa butter. The uniqueness of cocoa butter as an anti-cellulite remedy is explained by the fact that it acts simultaneously in several directions. First, it softens and moisturizes the skin, making it firm and smooth. Secondly, the caffeine present in the oil, penetrating the skin, accelerates the process of fat burning and increases muscle tone, so that the "orange crust" becomes less noticeable. In addition, caffeine removes excess fluid from the body, so procedures using cocoa butter are indicated with a tendency to edema.
Cocoa butter can be used in a pure form (wrapping) and as a constituent of an anti-cellulite agent.
Wraps with cocoa butter
Take 2-3 tbsp. cocoa butter and melt it in a water bath (the recommended temperature in 40оС is 43оС). After the oil cool to 36оС – 37оС, if desired, enrich with one tablespoon of honey and apply anti-cellulite composition to the prepared skin. To enhance the effect, the body is wrapped with food polyethylene film and wrapped in a blanket. After 25-27 minutes, take a warm shower. After the first procedure, the skin will become moist and elastic. Carry out such anti-cellulite wraps are recommended twice a week 1,5-2 month in a row.
