Did you know that there are two types of cellulite? Embedded cellulite is deep-set adipose cellulite that creates a rigid, quilted appearance under the skin. Infiltrated cellulite is linked to water retention and creates a bubbly, thickened appearance under the skin. We don’t like either type, or even the word ‘cellulite’, and we’re sure you don’t enjoy it either. Good thing there is research, scientists, and help from NUXE Paris!
Body-Contouring Serum for Embedded Cellulite is a lightweight quick-absorbing serum that leaves the skin feeling incredibly soft and smooth. The product helps to reduce the appearance of orange peel skin with its potent concentration of caffeine and cocoa polyphenols. Furthermore, yacon extract helps to reduce the appearance of embedded fat and dimpled skin, while Brazilian mimosa and glaucine extract help to improve skin elasticity and overall appearance. In a 56 day dermatological study, 74% of participants agreed that the appearance of orange-peel skin was visibly reduced, 100% of participants agreed that their skin felt smoother, and 72% of participants agreed that the thigh circumference appeared more refined.
Body-Contouring Oil for Infiltrated Cellulite contains ten essential oils that help to diminish the dimpled appearance of the skin, caused by engorged tissues. Sesame, hazelnut, and macadamia oils combined with cocoa extract help to improve skin firmness and elasticity, while increasing skin smoothness and tone. In a 28 day dermatological study 100% of the participants agreed that their skin felt smoother, and 85% of participants agreed that their skin looked and felt better toned.
If you’re looking for powerful, effective results combine both serum and oil to combat cellulite. Use both products morning and night for effective results, and for better product absorption make sure to exfoliate with the new NUXE Fondant Body Scrub!

Want to know an insider tip that will dramatically decreases wrinkles, stress and improve your health? The best part is, it’s free to everyone! It won’t cost any of us a dime, but maybe an extra hour or so of your time. The trick is getting a full 8 hours of sleep. Seems simple right?!
Studies have proven time and time again that during your sleep cycle you skin naturally repairs itself due to the growth hormone (A.K.A the youth hormone) that is released during sleep. Also, during the hours of 11pm- 7am (or whatever you time of slumber may be) levels of cortisol are lowered that were most likely heightened during the hectic daytime hours. High levels of cortisol will; increase body fat, cause depression, thin the skin, and are toxic to the body. Falling into a deep sleep causes your body to release more melatonin in the body which has positive effects on your skin and immune system. Melatonin helps regulate the body’s internal clock to keep the body in rhythm trying to balance out any negative levels of cortisol. So its best encourage this process at night by applying hydrating moisturizes to support the repair process.
Anyone of us can testify that when we do not get a good night sleep it shows. It’s more difficult to focus and we become easily stressed which in turn causes those bad levels of cortisol to rise. Just remember when those levels increase your only aging yourself, so it’s important to take time to relax before bedtime. Receiving an adequate amount of sleep will restore the glow and luminosity in your skin and you wake feeling more alert and recharged.

Stretch marks appear when the skin has been stretched to the point of breaking down. When the skin becomes weak and the support structure begins to separate, the result is grooved and discolored skin. Collagen is normally damaged at the dermis level and a scar or stretch mark is left behind. The skin will normally have a red or purplish color at first which over time will fade out to have a silver or white appearance. Common causes are pregnancy, rapid growth and/or hormones.
Over the counter products will help to reduce the appearance of stretch marks. They normally do not entirely go away. Stretch mark creams will help to fade the discoloration of the scar and some will help to stimulate collagen reproduction.
Lips are one of the most common areas of our bodies that we tend to neglect. Lips do differ from the skin on other areas of our bodies and this means they need special attention. Lips are composed of very thin skin layers and do not contain any oil glands.
Lips are one of the most sun exposed parts of the body and are very vulnerable to dryness and damage. Since the lips do not contain any melanin, they do not have any natural UV filters. Make sure to get a lip treatment with a good SPF. The sun can also damage the collagen in lips, leaving them wrinkled and thin.
There are lip treatments available that contain beneficial exfoliants. Make sure to use a product specific for the lip area since lip tissue differs greatly from the skin on other areas of our bodies. Exfoliation can help to increase lip volume by plumping the skin and it can help with hydration by removing dead skin cell build up.
Our lips help define who we are. Be ready for all the attention you will receive with a new, improved, beautiful pout.
Keratosis Pilaris (ker-uh-TO-sis pil-AIR-is) or KP is a very common skin condition that mainly occurs on the back and outer sides of the upper arms, however, it can occur on other parts of the body such as the thighs, cheeks, back and/or buttocks. This skin condition affects 50% of the entire world’s population, most commonly found in adolescents.
KP causes small, acne-like bumps that are painless and normally have a reddish coloring. KP has also been referred to as “chicken skin” or “permanent goose bumps”. Though this skin condition is not so attractive, it is harmless. KP is normally worse in the winter months when the climate is drier. It has also been noted that KP may worsen during pregnancy or after childbirth.
Though treatment is not medically necessary, most people seek treatment for cosmetic reasons. The most common treatments to lessen the appearance of KP are exfoliators and moisturizers that are targeted to hydrate dry skin types. Some common ingredients and products that help to treat KP are Lactic Acid, Urea, Vitamin A treatments, microdermabrasion products, Salicylic Acid and Glycolic acid. Since KP is a chronic condition, treatments are recommended to be done continuously.
One of the most dreaded body issues is cellulite, and the difficulty to banish it. Cellulite can create unsightly dimpling that usually forms on the upper part of the legs. It is caused by irregular fatty deposits below the skin’s surface. Unfortunately cellulite can affect anyone; it does not discriminate by age or by weight. Cellulite has more to do with the composition of fat cells, our level of collagen and the surrounding tissues.
There are several known treatments for cellulite. One of the most common ingredients used in topical products is caffeine, which helps to stimulate the skin, increasing blood flow and reducing the fatty deposits. When applying a cellulite treatment, such as Bliss Fat Girl Slim, be sure to massage it into the skin for 30 seconds to a few minutes. This will stimulate blood flow in the area and promote even more circulation. Another form of treatment is Endermologie which uses rollers to help stretch out the fibrous bands of tissues and helps to release localized fat cells. For this form of treatment, take a look at the Wellbox Machine.
