Misija: Adijo celulit!/ **Mission: Godbye cellulite

V prejšnji objavi nas je Petra "potolažila", da imamo celulit skoraj vse ženske (80-90%) in, da se ga žal ne moremo povsem znebiti, čeprav lahko izgled močno izboljšemo. Razložila nam je tudi kaj ga povzroča, vendar...

**In the previous post Petra told us, that almost all (80-90%) of female population has got cellulite and that we can not completely get rid of it, but that we can make the appearance much better. She also explained what causes it, but...


..zakaj ga sploh moramo imeti? In zakaj ga moški (navadno) nimajo?
Tako je zapisano v naši DNK. Struktura naše (ženske) kože je drugačna, način kako se tkiva v podkožju med seboj prepletajo je drugačen, in ko se ženske nepravilno prehranjujemo in ne telovadimo redno, se začnejo maščobne celice in odpadne snovi (presnovki metabolizma+limfna tekočina) kopičiti v podkožju. To se pravzaprav dogaja pri vseh ljudeh, vendar se zaradi drugačne stukture kože, celulit (navadno) pojavi samo pri ženskah. Precej nadležno, kajne...
**...why do we have to have it in first place? And why men don't have it?
It's written in our DNA. The structure of our skin, the way the fibers are being interwoven between themselves is different, so when women are not eating healthy and doing their exercises, the fat cells and metabolites+lymphatic fluid starts to accumulate in the subcutaneous. This is actually happening to everybody (man or woman), but the structure of the skin tissue causes cellulite (usually) only at women. Pretty annoying, isn't it...


...in na kakšne načine vse lahko izgled izboljšamo?
Zelo pomembno je, da pospešimo mikrocirkulacijo podkožja, saj bomo s tem pospešili odplavljanje odpadnih snovi iz podkožja in s tem zgladili videz pomarančne kože. Mikrocirkulacijo lahko pospešimo s telovadbo (čeprav pri debelejšem sloju maščobnih celic, težje segrevamo zunanje plasti kože), z grelnimi kremami (segrevajo zunanje plasti kože), s hladilnimi kremami (telo mora ponovno vzpostaviti normalno teleso temperaturo,zato v podkožje pošlje več krvi), z različnimi tretmaji v kozmetičnih salonih (po več obiskih zagotovo učinkujejo, vendar so v primerjavi z ostalimi opcijami precej dražji), z limfno drenažo (odpadne snovi se odplavljajo iz podkožja), z infra rdečo savno (zunanje plasti kože se segrevajo-do 4cm globoko), z masažnimi pripomočki (razni valjčki, žogice, masažne rokavice... vsaka masaža povzroči rdečino, to pa pomeni, da smo pospešili cirkulacijo v podkožju) in uporaba masažnih hlačnih nogavic (imajo tako grelni učinek, ker so iz umetnih materialnov, kot masažni učinek, če z njimi telovadimo).


**...and what are the options to improve the appearance?
It's very important to accelerate the micro-circulation in subcutaneous, which helps us to accelerate elimination of metabolites and lymphatic fluid, and improves the appearance of cellulite. Micro-circulation can be accelerated with exercising (although when the layer of fat cells is thicker, it's much more difficult to heat the outer layers of skin), with anti-cellulite heating creams (they heat the outer layers of the skin), with anti-cellulite cooling creams (the body has to restore normal body temperature, so it sends more blood into subcutaneous), with different body treatments in beauty salons (the results can be seen after several visits, but this is in comparison with other options, much more expensive), with lymphatic drainage (the metabolites are drained out of subcutaneous), with infra-red sauna (the outer layers of skin are heated from outside-up to 4cm deep), massage gadgets (every massage causes flush of the tissue, and it means that more blood is in the subcutaneous), and usage of massage stockings (they have heating effect-because they're made of plastic materials, and massaging effect, if we workout wearing them).


Prav tako pomembno pa je tudi, da izločene odpadne snovi nadomestimo z zadostno količino vode, saj bo tako koža še bolj napeta.

**It is also very important, that we replace the drained fluids with fair amount of pure water, which also makes our skin look more tightened.


Načinov je torej več in vsak lahko najde sebi najljubšega. Nama pa je zagotovo (zaradi pomanjkanja časa in denarja) najenostavneje, če lahko za napeto kožo poskrbiva kar med vsakdanjo fizično aktivnostjo, s souporabo Afroditinih anticelulitnih krem/gelov in njihovih masažnih nogavic. In tu so najina opažanja po tretjem tednu:

**So there are many ways and we can each find our favorite. Petra and I (due to lack of time and money) definitely prefer to tighten our skin while exercising with massage stockings and anticellulite gels/creams by Afrodita. And here are our observations after third week:


Petra:
Nogavice so bile pretekli teden redno "v pogonu" :)
...in z njimi je prišlo tudi "sveže" počutje, bistra glava polna diplomskih idej;) in seveda IZBOLJŠAN (predvsem dosti bolj ČVRST:) videz kože na mojih "kritičnih" predelih!

** I was using my stockings regularly this week :)
...because of that I feel much better and I'm full of new ideas for my diploma:)
Also tone and firmness of my skin are visibly improved!


Sabina:
Z anticelulitnim gelom Cecropia (+masažne nogavice) sem se namazala skoraj vsak dan (samo en dan se nisem, ker sem nepričakovano prespala pri sestri in gela nisem imela s seboj) in skoraj vsak dan poskrbela tudi za fizično aktivnost. Opažam, da se je v tretjem tednu postopek odpravljanja celulita nekoliko upočasnil, vendar sem z rezultati vseeno vedno bolj zadovoljna. Koža je mehkejša in bolj čvrsta, videz celulita pa je še nekoliko izboljšan. Komaj že čakam, da vidim kakšen bo rezultat po četrtem tednu uporabe!

**I was applying anti-cellulite Cecropia gel (+massage stockings) almost every day (I haven't use it only once, because I unexpectedly slept at my sister's place, and I didn't take the gel with me) and I was also exercising almost every day. I have noticed, that in the third week the cellulite reduction has slowed down, but I am still getting more excited every day, with the results. My skin is softer and tighter and cellulite appearence has also improved. I can't wait to see the results after the fourth week of treatment!

Pomarančna koža/ **Orange peel skin


Nekatere ga iščejo z lupo, pri drugih se ponosno razkazuje sam od sebe ;)

Imamo ga skoraj vse ženske (80-90%)!
100% se ga ne da odpraviti, lahko pa IZBOLJŠAMO izgled naše kože!

** Some of them need magnifying glass to find it, and at the others he flaunts by himself ;)
Affects almost all women (80-90%)!
No treatment is proven 100% effective at eliminating it, but we can IMPROVE the appiarance of our skin!

Odvrzi svojo "pomarančno" kožo: 2.del/ 
**Shed your cellulate skin: part 2. :

Sabina:
Za menoj sta že dobra dva tedna uporabljanja Afroditinega anticelulitnega gela, Cecropia power.

OK, priznam...v projekt sem se podala povsem brez pričakovanj, ker je celulit pač take sorte nadloga, da je povezan z geni (predvsem z XX genoma) in načinom življenja, in tega pač ne spremeniš kar čez noč. Zato nisem, in še vedno ne pričakujem, da bo moj celulit izpuhtel tako kot madeži v reklami za kako čistilo, temveč se zavedam, da je potrebno vložiti kar precej truda in vztrajnosti, da bi dosegla spremembo. Vendar sem stvar vzela resno (mogoče zato, ker o tem pripovedujem na javnem blogu), sem ugotovila, da se nekaj dejansko dogaja. In to v (zame) pozitivni smeri. Koža se mi na otip zdi bolj napeta, k čemur zagotovo pripomore tudi telovadba, vendar tudi na videz opažam, da koža postaja bolj...enakomerna in gladka. Je to možno, ali bi potrebovala nov obisk pri okulistu? Sprememba je sicer minimalna, konec koncev tretma izvajam šele dobra dva tedna, ampak dovolj za motivacijo, da bom vztrajala do četrtega tedna (kot predvideva najin plan) ali celo dlje! :)


**I've been using Afrodita's Cecropia power, anticellulite gel, for over two weeks now.

OK, so I confess...I started this project without any expectations at all, because I know that cellulite depends on gens (especially the XX gens) and on lifestyle, and you don't really change that over night. So I haven't, and I still don't expect, that my cellulite will vanish like stains in some cleaner commercial, and I realize that it takes a lot of effort and persistence to make a difference. But I took it seriously (maybe, because I am talking about it on public blog), and I have noticed, that something is actually going on. Off, to be precised. My skin feels tighter, and I believe exercise is helping too, but I can also see that my skin is more...evened out and smooth. Is it possible, or do I need another appointment at opticians? Well, the change is minimal, but good enough for my motivation to hang in there till the end of week four (as our plan predicts) or maybe even more! :)




"Magična" formula/ **"Magical" formula:




Ne pozabite na najino  NAGRADNO IGRO !  
 **Don't forget on our GIVEAWAY! ;)


Petra:
Pretekli začetek tedna, me je "na skrivaj" opeklo sonce! :/

Zakaj pravim, da "na skrivaj"? Ker se soncu načeloma sploh ne izpostavljam (se ne pražim) in sem precej "obsedena" s kremami z zaščitnim faktorjem (o tem bi lahko veliko povedali moji prijatelji, ki jim kar naprej težim, naj zaščitijo svojo kožo;)!
Sem svetlolasa,  ZELO bledopolta, imam veliko materinih znamenj in drugih hiperpigmentiranih lis po celem telesu. Sonce me ne sme ujeti nepripravljene, kajti hitro "zardim" ;)
Kljub vsemu "orožju", sem naslednje jutro (na soncu sem bila dobri 2h) začutila žgoč občutek na predelu trebuha. Opeklo me je!! ! Še zdaj ne vem, kako se je sploh pripetilo, da sem (!očitno!) s kremo pozabila zaščititi svoj trebuh! Peklo in zategovalo me je in niti na misel mi ni prišlo, da bi nadaljevala z mojim tretmajem anticelulitne nege. Ko sem pomislila, na kakšen način bi koža odreagirala na izdelek (ki greje že sam po sebi) in kako si vlečem gor Afroditine hlače.. . mi je postalo slabo :S
Tako sem bila prisiljena za par dni prenehati z uporabo!
Po 4-ih dneh se je stanje toliko umirilo, da sem si namazala vse kritične predele (razen trebuha!) in odšla tečt. Nogavic za podvojeni učinek nisem oblekla, saj je bila ura 4:57 ko sem se odpravila od doma in jih med vsemi mojimi črnimi nogavicami nekako nisem prepoznala ;)
Reakcija kože na izdelek ni več tako močna, kot je bila ob prvih nanosih.. . A vendarle čutim, da se nekaj dogaja :D!

**Last week I was "secretly" burned by the sun! :/


Why do I say "secretly"? In principle, I avoid sun... and I am quite "obsessed" with creams with sun protection factor (my friends could tell more about this, because I always bother them how important is to protect your skin;)!
I am blonde and I have very pale complexion. I have a lot of birthmarks and other hyperpigmented spots all over the body. The sun can't catch me without sunblock, because there is no way for me to stop "blushing";)
Despite all the weapons I have against the sun....the next morning, I felt a burning sensation on my stomach....I GOT SUNBURNT! ! !
I still do not know how that happened... (!Obviously!) I forgot to put the sunblock on my stomach. And after the initial redness and irritation of the burn, I didn' t even think to continue my treatments with anti-cellulite treatments. When I thought about how the skin would react to the product (which heats itself) and how do I put on my Aphrodite pants .. . I felt sick :S  For a few days, I was forced to stop with treatmesnts. 
After 4 days... the situation has cooled so much that I lubricated all the critical areas (except belly!) and went running. I didn't dress socks to duplicate the effect, because time was was 4:57 when I went from home.. . somehow I did not recognize them from the other ;)
Skin reaction to the product is no longer as strong as it was at first drifts .. . Yet, I still feel that something is happening :D!



Run for the sun!



Kako pomembno se je kvalitetno obvarovati pred "nevarnimi" sončnimi žarki bova s Sabino govorili v eni izmed prihodnjih objav!


**The importance of quallity sun protection is important to everyone.. . We'll talk with Sabina in a forthcoming publication.










Run for the sun :)
