A flat tummy is the dream of every modern woman. Unfortunately, many of the fair sex consider this part of the body to be one of the most problematic. Excessive volumes in this area spoil the appearance. To lose weight at the waist, you need to not only diet, exercise, but also take care of the dermis.
Belly masks can be made at home. Many of these procedures turn out to be much more effective than salon ones.
How effectively do belly masks help to fight fat deposits?
Fat deposits tend to accumulate in the waist and hips. Not all diets can help you get the desired shape. To achieve a certain result, an integrated approach to this problem is required. Many beauty salons offer various procedures aimed at increasing skin elasticity and reducing body volume. It turns out that all this can be done at home. It is permissible to do masks and wraps even with a flat stomach for prevention purposes.
For the procedures to be as effective as possible, you need to perform them correctly. To begin with, you should go on a diet. Body care will not lead to the desired result if you eat everything. Before applying the composition to the skin, it is required to clean it with soap and water.
It is also advisable to use a scrub. You can buy a finished product in the store or make it yourself. The dermis is perfectly cleaned from keratinized particles by coffee grounds mixed with sour cream. It is necessary to massage the abdomen with a scrub, then wash off the drug and proceed directly to the mask.
Recipes for the preparation of compositions for the skin
There are a huge number of belly slimming masks that you can make at home. The most popular are the following compositions.
With pepper. Hot pepper is the main component of masks for slimming and firming the skin of the abdomen. It can be used both fresh and crushed, and in powder form. At the same time, pepper powder is much more convenient to use. Various oils can be used as additional components of the masks.
For example, a very effective formulation can be prepared with the addition of olive oil:
- for this, 6 tablespoons of this product must be heated in a water bath, mixed with 2 teaspoons of pepper powder and applied to problem areas. Heating the oil is necessary to improve the penetration of the composition into the upper layers of the skin;
- to increase the effectiveness of the procedure, you should wrap your waist with cling film and wrap yourself in a terry towel. You can wash off the product after 30 minutes with cool water and apply a nourishing cream to the dermis;
- hot peppers can also be diluted in cocoa powder. A very effective mask is obtained by mixing chocolate bar melted in a water bath and a teaspoon of pepper powder. The drug must be applied to the stomach for 30-40 minutes and then washed off;
- to make a cocoa-based mask, you need to mix 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder with water until a thick gruel is obtained, and then add half a teaspoon of pepper. The product must be applied to problem areas, wrapped in foil and rinsed off the composition after 40 minutes.
If an unbearable burning sensation appears during the procedure, do not need to endure. It is better to immediately wash off the mask and in the future give preference to some other procedure. Products containing pepper should not be applied to damaged skin.
With honey. A mask with honey will help to reduce the volume of the abdomen and give the dermis additional elasticity. To prepare it, you need to mix 4 tablespoons of a beekeeping product with a tablespoon of coffee grounds and a teaspoon of pepper powder. The resulting mixture should be applied to the stomach, lightly massage, wrap in a film, wrap up for 30 minutes, and then rinse off the rest of the mask and use a nourishing cream. In this case, it is not at all necessary to use a scrub before the procedure.
With mustard. An anti-cellulite mask with honey and mustard is considered one of the most effective. It helps to remove fat and smoothen the skin.
To prepare the composition, you need:
- mix melted honey with mustard powder in a ratio of 1: 2 or 1: 1. The proportions must be chosen based on their own feelings. The more mustard in the mask, the more effective it is, but not all people can withstand such a procedure;
- for owners of sensitive dermis, this option for losing weight in the waist area is contraindicated. Mustard can cause severe irritation or even burns. It is better to pre-apply a small amount of the mask on the back of the wrist. If after 10 minutes there is no redness and itching, you can safely use a wrapping agent;
- the resulting composition is required to be applied in a thin layer to problem areas, wrap with foil, wrap up, and after exactly 15 minutes rinse off the drug with cool water. You cannot overexpose the product on the skin.
With clay. An anti-cellulite mask can also be prepared on the basis of black clay. The powdered product must be mixed with warm water until a thick slurry and a few drops of cinnamon oil added. The resulting composition must be mixed again and applied to the body, wrapped in foil, wrapped up.
You can wash off the mask after 40-50 minutes. The preparation does not contain burning components, so this procedure is tolerated quite easily. To enhance the effectiveness, you can apply clay to the stomach, wrap it with foil and perform a set of exercises. This helps to increase the rate of fat burning.
With yeast. An effective yeast-based mask will help to slightly tighten the tummy. To prepare it, you need to grind a pack of fresh yeast, mix it with warm water, 3 tablespoons of honey and 5 drops of lemon essential oil until a thick gruel is obtained. The resulting composition should be applied to the skin, wrapped up and washed off the drug after 50 minutes. The procedure should be completed with a light massage and applying a nourishing cream to the body.
With a decoction of nettle. To get rid of fatty deposits in the waist area, you should try an effective mask based on nettle decoction.
Rather, it can even be attributed to compresses:
- 4 tablespoons of dried nettle leaves must be poured with a glass of boiling water, boiled and allowed to brew, and then strain and soak a cotton cloth with it, which must be wrapped around the stomach;
- to enhance the effectiveness of the procedure, it is also recommended to wrap the waist with cling film and wrap yourself in a terry towel;
- after 2 hours you can take a cool shower. It is simply necessary to wash off the remnants of anti-cellulite masks, since they all have a warming effect, as a result of which sweating increases. At the end of the procedure, not only the active composition is washed off from the body, but also sweat with all toxins and toxins. If you do not shower on time, harmful substances will be absorbed back into the upper layers of the dermis.
How often to apply masks for skin elasticity?
In order for the result to exceed all expectations, it is necessary to carry out all home procedures as competently as possible and, importantly, regularly. If you just need to slightly tighten the tummy, make it elastic, you can apply masks no more than 1 time a week.
When it comes to a fairly pronounced degree of obesity, you need to follow a diet and apply masks to the skin every other day. Exercise is also recommended. After completing 10-15 procedures, it will be possible to switch to a maintenance mode and do masks 1-2 times a week.
Home care can be combined with salon care, and in most cases this can achieve very good results. But even without regular visits to beauty salons, you can see noticeable improvements after a few weeks. A competent approach to solving the problem allows you to reduce the waist by 2-4 centimeters in just a month. It is necessary to remember about contraindications to such procedures. In the presence of certain gynecological problems, as well as during pregnancy, warming compounds cannot be used.
Slimming masks in the abdomen are highly effective when done correctly. To get slimmer and get the shape of your dreams, it is also recommended to follow the advice of nutritionists and visit the gym or do certain exercises at home.
