SPOTLIGHT 34 @dayspamagazine • June 2019 © GETTY IMAGES Elina Fedotova, CEO and formulator, Elina Organics: "Spices like cinnamon, clove, mustard seed and pepper can improve blood and lymph fl ow through problem areas, and help the client sweat more and detoxify. Concentrated coffee and caffeinated black and green teas are also helpful for improving circulation. These ingredients work best when encapsulated in liposomes for better penetration, or when delivered to deeper layers of the skin with ultrasonic or radiofrequency (RF). Protocols that feature vibration, suction, intense manual massage, infrared LED or cold laser devices, combined with specialty products, are all smart options. Education is important, as well—clients need to know that cellulite is caused by a lack of circulation and oxygen in the area, as well as a concentration of fat cells right underneath the skin. Recommend a diet lower in sugar, salt and starch, and higher in vegetables—along with exercise and regular massage. Even if clients can't get a weekly massage, they should use a massage chair or shaking platform to assist blood fl ow. Finally, before and after photos play a crucial role in marketing cellulite products and services." Ottmar Stubler, president, PFB Vanish: "A dual approach is important when addressing the appearance of cellulite. Below the surface, ingredients such as caffeine and plankton extract can stimulate and tone the skin, while nourishing topicals such as aloe, shea butter and coconut oil help hydrate, soften and smooth. Cellulite is very common even in the fi ttest clients, so rather than promoting products and services for detox or weight loss, we prefer a 'Love Your Body' mindset that includes healthy, active lifestyle recommendations. Get outside and enjoy nature with more confi dence in your appearance." u
