We are a little bit weight-obsessed in the western world. Which is not necessarily a bad thing, as long as
the aim is to look healthy, feel healthy and actually be healthy (as opposed to squeezing into tiny jeans!). Cell Slim & Tone Lotion, our newest product innovation, is specifically designed to support this aim.
It aids (rather than creates) weight loss, and helps to maintain a healthy body balance by drawing on powerful ancient raw organic molecules that penetrate the layers of skin to bring about positive, lasting change.
The benefits of using Cell Slim & Tone are twofold.
Firstly there’s the physical effect; the essential oils in Cell Slim & Tone have been carefully selected based on their ability to encourage healthy cell activity, aid elasticity, flush toxins and break down fat tissue, support circulation and deeply moisturise, nourish and visibly improve the skin's tone and texture.
Secondly there’s the psychological aspect; this particular blend of essential oils combines to give off a scent to make you feel uplifted, supported, affirmed and encouraged. Aroma works directly
on the brain to create a unique (and potent) memory recall. So over time, as you incorporate Cell Slim & Tone into your daily ritual, the feelings you attach to its scent will automatically reinforce your goal of achieving your ideal weight, and give you the boost you need to forge ahead with a healthy routine and positive life choices.
We know the lotion works, because in the development phase we had 100 customer volunteers (a cross-section of ages, genders and ethnicities) help us get the formulation right. These participants had the intention to lose weight, and they applied the product to problem areas twice daily (morning and night) in conjunction with a mindful diet and daily exercise.
Out of the 100, 65 people reported weight reduction within the first 2-3 weeks (some significant, ie. two inches off the waist, one inch off the thigh). 33 reported a visible reduction in cellulite, and 23 noted a toning effect (improved elasticity) following weight reduction. 23 people used the lotion during long-haul flights (rubbing onto feet, ankles and calves) and reported a noticeable reduction in fluid retention. Absolutely everyone had a positive association with the smell, and loved the feel on application.
It took six months of development and five rounds of fine-tuning before we were completely happy with the formulation for Cell Slim & Tone Lotion. But the result is worth it! And now we have an incredible new, 100% pure and natural, certified organic product added to our range that I know you, and the rest of our customers will LOVE.
Of course no lotion on its own is going to magically help you achieve your weight loss goals – there are other factors that need to come into play such as eating well, sleeping well, hydrating and excercising regularly. So, just while we are on the topic, here are a few quick tips you may find helpful.
Best time of the day to exercise?
Actually it’s any time. Find out what fits best into your schedule and make it a regular part of your routine. Myself, I prefer mornings – and there’s research to suggest that exercising first thing (before breakfast) taps into fat stores, gets you moving about more during the day and gives you a tendency to consume less calories. Excercising is great for sleep too, and studies have shown that people who are not getting enough sleep will eat more during the day to compensate.
Fad diets don't work...
but a good diet does. Healthful eating means consuming nutrient-dense foods in the right quantities from all the food groups (whole grains, fruit & vegetables, protein, dairy, fats and sugars). Monitor your portion sizes. Eat fresh and avoid processed food. Try not to add extra sugar and limit your salt intake. And choose unsaturated fats (found in oily fish and nuts) over saturated (animal) fats. Of course it’s ok to detox from time to time (go hard on the juicing) – your internal systems will thank you for it! But an intense clear out needs to be handled sensibly, and is not sustainable for too long.
Water is good for weight loss.
And staying hydrated is essential to maintaining a healthy body. The recommended intake is 15 cups a day for the average adult male and 11 cups a day for adult females. Water is 100% calorie-free, it helps curb hunger, it keeps your mind sharp, boosts metabolism, and allows you to exercise harder and longer – while helping you stay regular. H2O-yes!
Have you tried dry brushing?
If not, you really should – as it stimulates circulation, invigorates the skin and eliminates the build up of toxins (including cellulite). It’s also the perfect precursor to applying Cell Slim & Tone Lotion - as it unclogs the pores (allowing for optimum absorption) and enhances the tightening and smoothing effect.
Here’s what to do: using a loofah or natural bristle brush, start at your feet and brush upward towards the heart. Use firm, small strokes upwards, or work in a circular motion. Repeat all over for 3-5 minutes, then shower, then apply the Cell Slim & Tone Lotion. Incorporated into your routine (2x daily application for Cell Slim & Tone, and at least 3x weekly for the dry brushing), it won’t be long before you see improvements.
