I am going to have to be honest here and just tell you that the explanation is so complicated and hard to explain so I am for the first time, going to have to quote them word by word or I would screw the whole thing up trying to come up with my own explanation that my head started hurting just thinking about it. So, forgive me this one time for quoting the sponsor on how something works:
Cellulite is not simple fat, but a way in which your body reacts to a build-up of toxins in the connective tissue in the skin. This then manifests as a honeycomb web of waterlogged and toxin filled tissue. Circulation of the lymphatic system and of the venous system, blood flow and capillary integrity are crucial to improve the situation.
Phyto*Lite scrub is a combination of sugar and salt enriched with plethora of not only skin smoothing ingredients but also flub busting extracts. Blend of Caffeine, Ivy, Horsetail, Paprika, Butchers broom, Bladderwrack and Horse chestnut are well known to draw out toxins proven to increase circulation and also improve skin tone, therefore fighting cellulite. The blend also stimulate collagen biosynthesis, increase the incorporation of proline, thus modulating the metabolism of connective tissue. Juniper berry helps to detoxify and clear congested skin, making it an excellent aid to help clear cellulite and to return the tissue to normal functioning.
Its safe yet dependable diuretic effects help to clear the skin, not only from unwanted toxins, but also from excess water in the tissue. Ivy Extract contains Hederin (Hederine) - an active saponin that is responsible for blood vessel protection and helps to reabsorb the edemas present in the initial stages of cellulite. It furthermore has great anti-inflammatory and pain killing properties as well as assisting with circulatory which helps other components to be absorbed by the skin. Scent blend of citrus and peppermint will aid as pick-me-up for your senses and skin.Did I not warn you that it would be very technical? So, I hope you can see why I decided not to even go there and try to come up with simpler words. None came to mind and thus I broke my own rule by quoting. But, hopefully, at least you understand exactly how it all works together to give you great looking legs and thighs, which is where my main problems are. I love scrubs as evidenced by what is in my bathroom. I love them as exfoliators for the face, feet, hands and body. So, when I had the chance to try out this new scrub, well, I just had to!
I have been using Sweetsation Therapy's products for awhile now and I really love their facial masque alot along with their eye cream so I knew this would also be a great product and I wasn't wrong. I wasn't sure what to think of the paprika part but knew that it wouldn't be in there if it didn't help do something extra special. And they were really on target when they said it smells like a citrus/peppermint.
When you get the product in the mail, it will be a separated a little because the oils have risen to the top, but don't get too excited. Just take a spoon or other kind of stirrer and mix it all together before using. Then take a small amount and start rubbing gently in a circular motion paying special attention to your problem areas. Then rinse off and follow up with Sweetsation's Svelte Pro Anti cellulite treatment. Which I don't have! So, I guess that means I will be getting a jar of it soon. Don't know how it would work if I did not have it so I will have to write it down as we go along and see what happens. Then I can report back to you on what I think.
Sweetsation Therapy has so many more wonderful products to tell you about including their wonderful toner to their organic foaming cleansing agent to their nighttime moisturizer. I think that they are all good and I loved the feel of sheer lightness that it goes on with. You know, some lotions/creams are so heavy from over-processing the creams that they feel like you are wearing a mask all of the time. I can't stand that feeling. That is one of the best things about Sweetsation Therapy, the lightness and how well it absorbs into the skin. Can't find anything that even compares to it so when I think of cleaning my face, Sweetsation Therapy is the one that pops into my head first. Now here is something I just read that I did not even know about until now and I am kicking myself all over because I had plenty of these to get some free samples or money off! That's what happens when you don't read it all!
