Although it takes more than slimming creams to achieve a svelte figure, they can make a huge difference in the overall texture and tone of your skin! While regular exercise and healthy lifestyle choices contribute to weight loss, slimming creams can help to further enhance the contours of your body.

What are slimming creams?

Basically, a slimming cream is a topical treatment that you massage onto the skin on your body to give it a toned appearance. While slimming creams don’t actually help you to lose weight, they can be instrumental in reducing the appearance of cellulite and eliminating water retention for a slimmer and more contoured appearance. Hence, the de-puffing effect is what makes slimming creams a great addition to any body care routine. Since they help to lift, firm and tone the skin, they are especially suitable as a post-pregnancy and weight loss body care treatment.

How do slimming creams work?

Usually, body contouring creams are formulated specifically with active ingredients that boost microcirculation and stimulate lymphatic drainage. Examples of such ingredients include antioxidant-rich ginger, turmeric, caffeine and green tea extract. Additionally, these creams also contain hydrating and nourishing ingredients to thoroughly moisturise the skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and stretch marks. Moreover, the secret also lies in the application technique which we will get to in a moment.

How do I apply slimming creams?

Like regular body lotions, it is best to apply your body contouring cream right after a shower or bath when your skin is still damp. Since your skin is the most absorbent when it is damp, the cream will be able to penetrate more effectively into the epidermis. Thus, it will be able to deliver the active ingredients more effectively to your skin as well. Also, it is best to massage the product onto your skin using upward sweeping motions to stimulate microcirculation and lymphatic drainage. Taking time to massage the cream onto your skin will help to improve the overall efficacy of its active ingredients. On top of it all, remember that consistency is key. So establishing a routine to apply it daily (say every evening after your bath) can help to yield better results over time.
