Via the “little holes”

Cosmetics – Even the arms can highlight the “holes” of the Orange peel. However, that of the upper limbs is a “false cellulite”: it is not caused by the fibrosis of the adipose tissue, but by the relaxation of the tissues which causes the skin to slide downwards.

To counteract the blemish, apply a twice a day draining cosmetic product, for example with St. John’s wort, arnica, witch hazel, rusco, red vine oil and with horse chestnut vegetable liposomes, which decongest; with biomimetic peptides, escin, extracted from turmeric and ginger, which are anti-inflammatory and disinfiltrant of the tissues, in addition to the inevitable caffeine and fucus, compacting
and lipolytics.

«In the evening, moreover, apply a skin firming cosmetic, for example with laminin (a new generation biomimetic peptide), or with ginseng, ginkgo biloba or with soy and echinacea, rich in compacting and elasticizing substances », advises dermatologist Leonardo Celleno.

The specific massage – Ring the thumb and middle finger of the right hand around the left wrist and go up, massaging and exerting moderate pressure, up to the elbow.

Repeat four times then, with the same fingers, start from the elbow and go up to your shoulder, always four times. When the sequence is finished, repeat it on the other arm.

Aesthetic medicine – «To mitigate the mattress effect of the arms, the carboxytherapy: micro-injections of carbon dioxide which cause the opening of the microvessels, stimulating blood flow.

Thus the tissues receive more oxygen, increases the lymphatic drainage, the more superficial fat cells dissolve and, like the toxins, are eliminated physiologically “, explains Giuseppe Sito. 10-15 sessions, one a week (around € 70 each).
