My Fitness Journey Part 3: Body work
April 20, 2016
After sharing with you the tech help I have during my fitness journey as well as showing you some of my favorite items of training gear I thought it best to start pulling out the big guns and show you something that really helps me during this exciting journey – the body work my special toning products do. Thing is, I’ve done so much research during this whole process and I’ve learned so much that I’ve come to understand my body and what it wants or even anticipate how it’s going to react, really well. It is extremely important to use the correct body products when you embark on a weight loss or fitness journey – I cannot stress this enough. You don’t have to go all psycho Sid on it like I did, but just doing a small mount every day will guarantee skin health and you’ll thank me for it one day. Toning body products stimulate skin and helps it to stay supple and nourished in times of body changes like pregnancy, weight loss and even procedures. The products I have been using were hand picked and really did make a difference in my case. There are four products/ranges that I want to share with you, but because they all deserve huge credit, I’ve decided to split the Body Works edition of My Fitness Journey into two pieces. Today however I’d like to start with these very special ones – I’ve tried to divide it into areas where I found them most applicable, so lets take a look…
!QMS MEDICOSMETICS NECK & MORE – This pot of cream has been absolutely phenomenal. Special active ingredients target specifically the neck, decollete and bust area. Sagging and crepey looking skin due to weight loss and aging can be a bummer – this wonder cream however contains plant oils that keep skin supple, natural extracts to keep contours firm and intensely moisturizes to prevent premature aging. Skin is tightened and fine lines and wrinkles look less because of the high nourishment factor. Connective tissue is strengthened with exotic plant oils and the star of the show is the West African Kigelia plant extract that has a brilliant lifting effect especially around the breasts. All in all, this cream is great to firm skin, improve circulation, moisturize, stimulate metabolism and regenerate skin. For optimum results use twice daily by massaging it over the neck, bust and chest – the sublime smell will have you enjoy this cream to the max also!
NIVEA Q10 BODY FIRMING RANGE – This range always has me falling back on it no matter what. It is super effective, affordable and available just about anywhere. Containing the unique Nivea Body Energy Complex with Coenzyme Q10, Creatine and L-Carnitine to help metabolize fat cells into energy. The result is that skin is so much more toned in just two weeks of twice daily use. I’ve used this for years, even before the feature and it works really really well. The range really offers something for everyone:
- Firming Body Cream – comes in a tub and is used especially on bum, thighs and stomach
- Firming Body Moisturizer Dry Skin – comes in 250ml and 400ml – blue bottle
- Firming Body Moisturizer Normal Skin – comes in 250ml and 400ml – white bottle
- Firming Body Oil – firms in two weeks, reduces appearance of stretchmarks, evens tone, nourishes intensely with avocado oil, cottonseed oil and macadamia oil – I use this on wet or dry skin
- Goodbye Cellulite Firming Gel-Cream – firms skin and reduces the appearance of cellulite in three weeks without having to apply a special massage technique! This gel-cream formula has a cooling effect so it increases blood circulation, the lotus extract minimizes the forming of new fat cells and increases firmness in two weeks – this stuff really really works when you use it twice a day.
I THOUGHT I’D SPREAD THE NIVEA LOVE SO I’M GIVING ONE READER A WHOLE SET OF THE Q10 FIRMING RANGE, CONSISTING OFF ALL OF THE ABOVE PRODUCTS (WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE NORMAL SKIN BODY MOISTURIZER BECAUSE GOING INTO WINTER I THOUGHT THE DRY SKIN FORMULA WILL BE MUCH MORE APPLICABLE).
SIMPLY LEAVE YOUR NAME UNDER COMMENTS OF THIS POST AND I’LL SEND YOU THE RANGE IF YOUR NAME IS DRAWN BY NEXT WEDNESDAY 27 APRIL 2016. I’LL ANNOUNCE THE WINNER UNDER COMMENTS BELOW. YOU’RE WELCOME TO SHARE ON YOUR SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORMS – IT MAY INCREASE YOUR CHANCES
