Skin Care

By Kimberly McDonald

Never have backsides been so…well, “in.” But before shimmying into short shorts or slipping into your mini, before going Brazilian with a thong…check out what Nuxe can do for you with it’s Spa Tonific line.

The folks at Nuxe have taken a purist approach to a svelte lower half. Using essential oils and Amazonian plants to stimulate and invigorate ‘the area,’ they’ve actually come up with a system that seems to work, on a cumulative basis, to reduce (if not eliminate) the appearance of cellulite.

Starting with the Spa Tonific Drainage Enhancing Massage Body Oil, you’ll work the botanicals into the skin. This product can be used in the bath or applied post shower (I recommend not drying off before using it, but applying it directly to steaming damp skin and massaging it in with some verve!). The body oil has Brazilian Ginseng along with Lemon (stimulating), Sweet Orange (toning), and Grapefruit (softening), all of which work together to help eliminate excess water in the area, which is what can cause that dimpled effect we all loathe and detest.

Next step is the Spa Tonific Intensive Firming Cream. Again, Nuxe turned to the Amazon for plants such as Brazilian Mimosa and Bamboo. They’ve also added a firming agent which comes from the Kigelia Africana tree, as well as extracts from the Japan Medlar tree…which have been shown to improve skin texture. There is even an extract that will help protect your skin from the sun, while Luffa oil replenishes the skin. This cream can be used all over the body, to improve tone and texture.

Finally, the pièce de resistance! This year, Nuxe introduced the Tonific Minceur Anti-Cellulite Cream. Yeah, I know, you don’t buy it…but you should!

The cream-gel is quite different from other empty promise tubes on the market because it uses ayruvedic medicine principals along with caffeine. The patented combination helps eliminate fat deposits and prevents new deposits from forming while the Amazonian plant extracts are at work toning the skin.

Applied twice daily with an upward motion to the affected areas, this product gives some pretty impressive results. Within about a month, approximately 80% of women saw a reduction in the appearance of cellulite, orange peel skin and sponginess.

Nothing is going to be a panacea. There is no miracle pill or cream. Diet and exercise play a key role in the appearance of cellulite, as does genetics. However, there is something you can do to stimulate the reduction or elimination of cellulite. It’s an ongoing process. Most of us spend the larger portion of our day sitting on our rear-ends and the back of our thighs…neither which promote circulation in that area. At least with the Nuxe Spa Tonific line you can do something to combat the results of that.

Spa Tonific and Spa Minceur, along with the rest of the NUXE line are available online at www.beautyexclusive.com
