Alva Intensive Skin Refining Cream ( for cellulite & loose skin) 150ml
Statistics and beauty magazines tell us that two out of three women over 30 suffer with what’s been termed orange peel skin. Alva has succeeded in dealing with cellulite by combining three highly effective active ingredients, all of which have been tested and proven in clinical studies. The three-way complex smoothes the "orange peel" appearance of cellulite whilst tightening and regenerating loose skin.
Intensive Refining Cream is designed to help combat cellulite, helping to improve its appearance by firming and giving integrity to the collagen structures of the skin; it also promotes the detoxification of the skin, eliminating unwanted and potentially harmful toxins whilst helping to tighten loose skin.
Three self-supporting active ingredients tighten and regenerate the skin:
1. Caffeine from organic coffee purifies the tissues, at the same time activating the enzyme triacylglycerol lipase, helping to break down and metabolise fat. It also acts as an antioxidant, a diuretic and a vaso-constrictor. Caffeine helps to dehydrate fat cells by somehow energizing them which in turn causes the sodium/potassium component of the cells to vacate. Consequently, water disappears as well. Bottom line – skin on buttocks and thighs becomes smoother.
2. L-arginine optimises the modification of proteins, consequently tightening muscles and problem areas. The metabolism of L-arginne leads to the formation of nitric oxide, an important catalyst for the healthy dilation of blood vessels, circulation and blood flow. Other research indicates that L-arginine may support healthy lipid metabolism.
3. Wellmune builds up the skin’s immune system, regenerates the cells by activating fibroblasts, and optimizes long-term skin elasticity. The action of the fibroblasts gradually overhaul the skin, giving it a ‘spring clean’ from the inside and renewing the extra-cellular matrix.
The inclusion of controlled organically cultivated jojoba oil, shea butter and cocoa butter care for the skin and provide moisture.
