I’m good with coffee, no matter which way you present it to me. I do really prefer to be drinking coffee or eating something with its flavor, though. In the recent years, however, more and more applications of coffee have been emerging and one of these is the cellulite wrap offered by Pevonia, a spa consultancy and treatment service in the UK.
I actually heard about their coffee cellulite wrap from The Independent:
In theory: The health-conscious know that caffeinated drinks such as coffee are one of the main culprits responsible for the dreaded orange-peel. Applied topically, however, coffee has had the beauty world abuzz with its dimple-destroying ability. The latest salon superfood is green coffee, which skincare company Pevonia has used as the main ingredient in this body wrap that it claims stimulates the breakdown of fat while firming, slimming and smoothing skin tone and texture.
In practice: Therapist Roxanne cheerily buffed Dr F with a gentle exfoliator before applying a cellulite-busting serum and smothering her in green goo. Dr F was then wrapped in clingfilm and foil and given a soothing head massage while she gently marinated for 20 minutes. The cream is cold on application but heats up alarmingly after a few seconds (busting those pesky fat cells?) so prepare to sweat during this treatment.
In my book, anything with heat should be good for fat burning. Then again, I have been wrong about slimming down so many times! 😉
Seriously, though, I suppose that this treatment can help for short term purposes but I do not know if it will help in the long run. More so, the cost of a treatment would probably inhibit long term reliance on it for getting rid of cellulite. What say you?
