Yes! A Natural Way to Reduce The Appearance of Cellulite!

One of my favorite parts of getting to interact with women from all over the world is the information that YOU provide me, and being able to share it with other women!

Below are some pretty interesting facts about cucumbers!  Yes, they do tighten the skin….just read below for more details!

*Cucumbers contain most of the vitamins you need every day, Vitamin B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, C, Folic Acid, Calcium, Iron Magnesium, Phosphorus Potassium & Zinc- ALL which are great for healthy younger looking skin!

*Want to avoid a hangover or terrible headache? Eat a few cucumber slices before bed & wake up refreshed!  The sugar, B vitamins & electrolytes will replenish nutrients lost while you sleep!

*Looking for a fast way to remove cellulite before going out or to the pool?  Try rubbing a slice or two of cucumbers along your problem areas for a few minutes, the phytochemicals in the cucumber cause the collagen in your skin to tighten, firming up the outer layer & reducing the visibility of cellulite!

*Cucumbers are a great way to fight off an afternoon snacking binge. Cucumbers have been used by explores for centuries to ward of starvation. I actually cut up a bunch on Sunday night and put them in baggies to grab as a quick snack throughout the week (I LOVE the Persian ones).

    Microcurrent Facial Toning

    This is great information on Spa 10’s #1 anti-aging facial and body toning treatment! A lot of you have had these amazing treatments and here is clinical information on all the benefits you receive during your hour-long appointment.

    Muscle re–education is most related to the term “facial toning”. There are 32 different muscles of the face that are manipulated during the average microcurrent treatment.

    Aside from muscle re-education and massive increases in ATP levels, microcurrent has other proven benefits for esthetic applications. Emil Y Chi, PhD, director of the University Of Washington‘s department of pathology, performed clinical studies using microcurrent equipment. He notes,” The fact that technology works in harmony with the body is evident. Examination of the skin tissue treated with microcurrent showed a 45% increase in the number of elastin fibres in the dermis, and the length if the fibres on average doubled. The collagen thickness in the connective tissues increased 10%, and the numbers of blood vessels increased by 35%. The application of microcurrent to skin and tissue produced a firmer and tighter feeling on the skin surface.

    Many of the studies detailing the massive increase in speed regarding wound healing refer to ATP as one of the attributing factors. The other attributing factor is an increase in blood circulation. Blood circulation has everything to do with the function, condition, color, and overall health of the skin, as underlying tissue.

    Chi’s 2003 study performed at the University of Washington further notes a 35% increase In blood circulation Limphatic drainge is a very overlooked treatment in esthetics, although it has been gaining momentum in recent years. Clinical studies performed using microcurrent at Hong Kong’s Tuen Muen Hospital in 1988 indicated that Limphatic by 28% on post-cancer patients suffering from lymphodema.

    Chi’s 1999 study also proved that the redness, irritation, and inflammation of surgically traumatized tissue could be decreased significantly when treated with microcurrent. Related to this, the buildup of hardened collagen that makes up scar tissue was noted to be 3 to 5 times less in tissue treated with microcurrent. Further studies also indicated an amazing dispersion of existing scar tissue when treated with microcurrent. This indicates that in the realm of plastic surgery, you can see the obvious place for microcurrent technology. By administering a series of treatments before surgery, muscle and tissue condition is maximized, inclusive of an excessive storage of ATP. Microcurrent treatment of sutures and trauma post-op decreases the down time by reducing inflammation, redness and irritation, while enhancing the healing ability and minimizing scar tissue. Post-surgery treatments also are vital to maintain the results of the surgical work.

    In terms of product penetration, microcurrent offers specific Iontophoresis that allows superior penetration of water based products into the skin. The idea that the electrical current emits from one probe and returns to the other allows specific focus on products penetration, Chi’s 1999 study also proved that the redness, irritation and inflammation of surgically traumatized tissue could be decreased significantly when treated with microcurrent.

    Related to this, the buildup of hardened collagen that makes up scar tissue was noted to be three times less in tissue treated with microcurrent. Further studies also indicated an amazing dispersion of existing scars when treated with microcurrent.
