      Shrinking Violet Lipo Pro Body Sculpting Treatment

      Shrinking Violet Lipo Pro Body Sculpting Treatment

      Combines Compression and Ice Therapy

      Cryotherapy has become a fairly well known treatment in the spa industry, being used both as a weightloss management and workout recovery tool. Shrinking Violet dove deeper into the benefits of ice or cooling therapy with the Body Freeze treatment they released, which also uses cold temperatures to tone, slim and sculpt the body.

      Body Freeze Treatment

      The treatment uses cooling temperatures and compression therapy to help slim and tone the body. This type of treatment could be an excellent option for spas that have been looking into cryotherapy, but have not been able to afford the machinery.

      The treatment uses products developed by Tibby Olivier to help in lowering inflammation, paired with body sculpting massage to stimulate and reshape the body.

      The treatment starts with the Double Deep being applied to the skin, its icy blast to help lower the body temperature. Then the body will be manipulated with the body sculpting massage, and acupressure massage will be performed on the abdomen to remove any blockages. Finally the body will be wrapped in pre packed compression bandages that have been pre-infused in Shrinking Violet Lipo Pro solution (cooled) to improve circulation while keeping the body temperature low to maximize calorie burn.

      Understanding Ice Therapy

      The Double Deep helps to bring down inflammation in the skin and prevent swelling from any sports injuries. More recently however, this type of "ice" or "cooling" therapy has also been shown to help with weight loss.

      For the Body Freeze treatment the Double Deep followed by body sculpting massage is applied to fatty areas of the body (i.e. abdomen, thighs, arms etc.). The cold therapy works to trigger the body into turning those fatty areas into calorie burning areas, and Shrinking Violet Lipo Pro solution is also formulated to tone the skin and reduce the appearance of cellulite.

      Adding in Acupressure

      Shrinking Violet acupressure massage is used in this treatment because it is a massage specifically designed to reshape and sculpt the body. While this massage is being performed the natural active ingredients in Shrinking Violet Lipo Pro Solution are released into the skin. The body sculpting techniques used in the massage help to stimulate the body thus making it work at a higher capacity for faster results.

      The abdominal acupressure massage in the treatment is an Ancient Chinese technique that involves palpating the belly to promote health and wellness in the body. This acupressure massage can help with pain and stress, but it also provides overall improvement of the digest track while aiding in metabolic function to reduce bloating and waste build-up.

      Finishing with Compression

      Over time, build up toxins accumulate in the three layers of fat in the body, which can cause poor circulation, water retention and weakening of the body's natural elimination process. The compression therapy used in the Body Freeze treatment aims to increase the pressure of these troublesome areas to stimulate the flow of lymph fluid.

      The Shrinking Violet Lipo Pro solution that the bandages are pre-soaked in helps to invigorate the body during the compression wrap. The Double Deep has a freezing effect on the body, dropping its temperature. This combination causes the brain to send norepinephrine receptors to the adipose tissue in the body to release its energy and generate heat, causing the body to burn more calories.

      I Dropped A Dress Size In An Hour

      I Dropped A Dress Size In An Hour

      Drop a dress size without breaking a sweat! Yes please! Losing inches and saving pounds I’m in, so when I saw Shrinking Violet Home Kit with an 20% off discount, I didn’t hesitate. These professional body wraps in beauty salons are around £80-99 each, the Shrinking Violet Home Kit was 10 full body wraps for £99. Absolute bargain!

      Dress size from a 16 to a 14!!!

      My Shrinking Violet Home Kit arrived and I could not wait to try it! I was advised by the customer care team at Tibby Olivier that:

      "The best way to achieve optimum results with Shrinking Violet Home Kit is by heat transfer, so we recommend always shaking the oil well before use, pour a capful in a warm bath and once dry but still warm from the bath then reapply 15-20ml to the whole body, massaging in very well and then put on the Shrinky suit.” The measuring cup is supplied in the kit.

      I preferred to lie in bed and watch tv under a duvet for an hour, after the hour I took off the shrinky suit and massaged any residue into the skin. I preferred to do this ‪around 7pm as I stay in bed and watch tv afterwards. Keeping warm. Showering lightly the morning after. I start by applying Shrinking Violet Slimming Solution from my double chin down to my ankles and massaging in well everywhere - it works better as a full body system. 

      I was advised not to have over indulged on food or alcohol before you give yourself the treatment, so your liver is not already over processing, no heavy meals or alcohol the night before and eat a light macrobiotic diet on the day, limit caffeine and no alcohol.

      I had eaten Shrinking Oats as a banana smoothie for breakfast and Shrinking Oats as porridge with fruit for lunch, I also sipped Shrinking Tea all day for a fat burning boost! Then had a healthy chicken salad for dinner.

      I measured myself before and after, with the tape measure provided in the kit, marking my body with a sharpie pen so I could remeasure afterwards exactly where I had measured before. I recorded my measurements on the client record cards provided. 

      The results from the first Shrinking Violet Home Kit session were an amazing 28 inches lost! I was blown away and I felt so slim the morning after, I performed the obligatory jeans test and yes my favourite jeans now fit perfectly, I previously was struggling to get them up my legs never mind fasten them!

      The Shrinking Violet Home Kit works best as a course of treatments, and combined with a healthy eating plan, I particularly enjoyed the Shrinking Oats and the ebook I received with lots of recipes in, which I am shocked at, as the oats made me feel really full all day, this is something I will continue daily, I loved the Shrinking Tea AM blend and will also start to combine this in my daily routine from now on, back to the Shrinking Violet Home Kit, which contains 10 full body treatments which are recommended for maximum impact. However if you’re short of time and for a last minute fix I’d totally recommend this and as you can see from my results, even a solitary session can make a significant difference. I’ve had all 10 now, have loved them all and have felt an immediate difference. After my most recent one I had to buy new smaller size jeans, my waist disappearing so rapidly. Combined with healthy eating I am now nearly a size 12, when I started I was a bulging size 16, thrilled is an understatement. 

      So whether you want a quick fix for a particular night out or a long term goal, Shrinking Violet Home Kit really gave me the boost I needed to start and stay on a healthy eating plan. I would highly recommend, in fact I would give Shrinking Violet Home Kit a 5* review. 

      64% of people unaware of blue light impact on skin

      64% of people unaware of blue light impact on skin

      Two in three (64%) people are unaware of the effect that blue light can have on their skin, has been found.

      We want to help people “beat the screen blues” by raising awareness of the negative impact that blue light has on skin – not just on our faces, but on the rest of the body too. Our Blue Venom anti-aging range has powerful & effective anti-ageing Protection with Blue Light Technology and Bee Venom.

      With 60% of people now spending more than six hours a day in front of a digital device, five working days can have the same impact on the skin as spending 25 minutes in midday sun without any protection.

      How blue light effects skin health

      The blue light emitted from screens not only affects the skin but can also disturb our biological clocks. Blue light can penetrate the skin far deeper that UV light, passing through the epidermis and dermis to the subcutis layer.

      It can induce both immediate and persistent pigmentation, which can still be present after three months. In addition, these rays can inhibit melatonin generation, increase stress hormone levels, and excite nerves, which in turn disturbs sleeping pattern and circadian rhythm. 30 hours of exposure to blue light from smartphone or laptop screens can increase the inflammation level in skin cells by 40%.

      “Long-term exposure to blue light has the potential to have a significant negative impact on people’s wellbeing, and we’re concerned people are simply unaware of the risks. It is highly likely that exposure to blue light has increased this year, as many previously office-based workers have increased their time in front of a screen, as face-to-face meetings have moved to virtual. People should be looking for skincare products loaded with antioxidants, as well as blue light protecting actives as found in our Blue Venom range. Limiting screen time also helps, not only for our overall skin health, but our general wellbeing too.

      "Across the world experts work to bring science and innovation insights to products which benefit people’s health and wellbeing, and we have a duty to let people know how best to protect themselves from the impact of blue light exposure.”

      How to Beat the Screen Blues

      To protect against blue light, We recommend using our Blue Venom anti-ageing products which include ingredients that minimise or neutralise blue light, as well as restore skin. Blue Venom skincare collection is a unique blend of Blue Light Technology and Bee Venom. Our Blue Venom range is high-performance skincare. Suited to anyone looking for an advanced skin care range, targeting the multiple signs of ageing combined with blue light protecting actives. Bee Venom works in synergy with a unique complex of plant stem cells combined in our unique blue light protection helping to restore conditions of chronological ageing and digital pollution, with hyper-pigmentation as the most visible effect, especially in darker skin types. The healthy-glow effect restored and the complexion radiance revived; a double deep formula that is then enhanced by Bee Venom helping to smooth out and also plump out fine lines and wrinkles, giving that immediate anti-ageing effect and lift.

      Shrinking Violet Body Wrap! Review

      Shrinking Violet Body Wrap! Review

      The lovely team at Shrinking Violet were kind enough to let me try out and review for myself their new product, which I think is on its way to revolutionising the weight loss world! Before I get into what the body wrap does lets talk about the packaging! I must  say I am a sucker for pretty packaging which looks clean and crisp and not too OTT. When I got this out of the box it came in I was so delighted with the look and feel of it ♥ Purple is such a pretty colour and the box cover felt so smooth and looked so neat, it did have a ribbon with tape measure detail on it but I was so excited I opened it before the photos 🙂
      What is it?
      The shrinking violet wrap is basically what it says! It is a wrap, well in this case a suit that you put on with the solution included which helps you to loose weight and get rid of bad toxins!  It is that easy right!? Yes indeed it is, you simply rub on the solution given to any areas that you think are a problem to you, pop on the suit and wait! You leave it on for up to an hour and can sit still, exercise and go about your daily business…..just remember to put the suit on AFTER the postman comes otherwise you may get some strange looks haha
      The suit helps to increase your body temperature which in turn helps you to sweat out the toxins and in effect lose weight a little at a time. The box includes a tape measure and measurement cards, so before you start do measure yourself and keep note to record how much you have lost! After my first time I saw immediate results and lost 3cm in some areas and 1cm in others! You also leave the solution on for 72 hours after rubbing it in your skin to see even further results!
      All the information is included in the booklet, with questions and answers. The solution smells so wonderful, a strong lavender smell which reminds me of relaxing!
      Does it work?

      The thing with all weight loss products that you must remember everyone is different so what works for one person may not work for another. Also it isnt' a thing where you can sit in the shrinky suit and eat burgers and fries and expect to lose weight. With anything it takes mental dedication in wanting to improve yourself but I think what is great about this is it helps to cleanse your body in a healthy way with you doing as little or as much as you want. Keeping hydrated is always important and using this product is a great way to keep on top of this as you are losing sweat and need to keep hydrated.

      YES
      For me it did work with immediate results, even it was only a little decrease in weight! For the best results it is recommended you take the 90 day challenge which I am looking to do and see what results I get then!
      I have read it can take up to 6 inches off your body!
      If you are really serious about weight loss and the health of your body I would really recommend this. Even if you are on a shake diet or reducing your meals I think this could be the next step.
      Much love
      Sarah

      53% of Brits wish they were more confident in their natural skin

      53% of Brits wish they were more confident in their natural skin

      53% of Brits wish they were more confident in their natural skin, survey finds.

      A new study, has taken a closer look at Brits' thoughts and feelings on body confidence.

      Out of 2,000 UK adults, the data found that a fifth had seen their self-esteem take a nosedive after being looked down on by a stranger.

      As a result of low confidence, more than a quarter of women don't leave the house without applying some form of make-up, and a fifth wear make-up in a bid to appear more confident to others than they are.

      In addition, the study revealed that 53% of Brits wished they were more confident in their natural skin and 43% of female respondents said they put make-up on to feel attractive – suggesting they would not without it.

      The research also showed:

      • 17% of UK adults have felt down on themselves after comparing themselves to a celebrity.
      • 14% don't feel secure in their own skin because their natural look is different to the image they portray on social media.
      • 28% lack confidence because they feel there is a lot of pressure to look a certain way.
      • 4 in 10 people agreed that editing photos before posting them is totally normal and that ‘everyone does it'.

      Tibby Olivier are surprised to find people care so much about what others look like – especially those they don't even know. At Tibby Olivier, we want to help everyone embrace their inner beauty and realise that what is seen on social media is often far from reality.
