Contour Sculpt Body System By Marie France Bodyline

=&0=& Infused with Marie France’s signature potent plant and mineral blend, the compression of MF Contour Sculpt Body Wrap helps rid your body of impurities and fatty acids through the process of lymphatic drainage. It also helps to stimulate existing collagen and elastin fibers, enhance collagen secretions, and improve skin’s elasticity over time. Benefits of Contour Sculpt Body System:
  • Visible reduction and improvement in the appearance of cellulite.
  • Detoxification – designed to help cleanse the body of toxins and interstitial fluids trapped between small spaces of fat tissues.
  • Hydrate and improve texture and appearance of skin.
  • Helps activate the lymphatic system thereby promoting detoxification and a boost to the metabolism.
  • Promotes synthesis of collagen resulting in firmer and tightened skin tone
  • Brightens skin and protects against discoloration and uneven skin tone.
Active Ingredients Our Signature Proprietary Blend Actives includes:   Cupana Seed Extract (Paullina Cupana) Its high caffeine content and stimulating properties make Paullinia cupana particularly effective in weight-loss programs as it helps increase the metabolic rate and improves thermogenesis. Studies have shown that Paullinia cupana positively affects lipid metabolism, enhances weight loss, and increases basal energy expenditure. Aloe barbadensis (Aloe Vera) The soothing, mucilage-rich gel from Aloe barbadensis is obtained from the inner filet of its fresh leaves. Aloe gel contains polysaccharides and glycoproteins – active compounds that together reduce inflammation, stimulate cell proliferation and promote skin repair.   Centella asictica Centella beneficial effects on the venous system help in strengthening the capillaries and veins and in so doing assists with better blood circulation. With its effect on connective tissue great value is achieved with the synthesis of collagen, thickening of the skin (a great anti-aging property – as we age our skins become thinner), increasing the tensile strength of the flesh, wound healing and repair of damaged tissue.   Equisetum arvense (Horsetail) The horsetail constitutes one of the most diuretic species in all the plants. It possesses a great capacity to eliminate water from the body; in such a point to increase urination up to 30% more than what is habitual. Equisetum arvense effectively helps to reduce weight due to the action of several components, which includes equisetonin, potassium, calcium, magnesium, ascorbic acid and caffeic acid. As a diuretic it is particularly suited to metabolic or hormonal oedema during the menopause. The diuretic action is thought to be due partly to the flavonoids and saponins.   Arctium lappa root extract (Burdock root) Arctium Lappa Root Extract is an aqueous extract of the fresh roots of the Burdock plant. One of the benefits attributed to burdock root is its ability to cleanse the body. It offers a stimulating effect on the excretory systems, helping them rid the body of toxins.   Palmaria Palmata Extract (Red Algae/ Dulse) Dulse extract has been clinically proven to possess free radical scavenging activity, making dulse useful as an antioxidant. The seaweed has also been demonstrated to inhibit the growth of lipid (fat) cells. It also inhibits melanin synthesis, limits melanosome transportation and UV-induced pigmentation to brighten skin complexion.    Laminaria Digitata (Atlantic Kelp) Laminaria is used mainly in treatments against cellulite and obesity, either alone or combined with other extracts to enhance its activity.   The mineral salts and especially iodine stimulate the general metabolism and cause an increase in the osmotic exchanges thus bringing about elimination of the excess fluids. This phenomenon is made use of in the treatment of cellulite and obesity, hence the use of Laminaria extracts in our wrap preparations.   Rosa Damascena (Damask Rose Oil)  The Bulgarian Rose is a plant that’s packed with therapeutic benefits. It is a wonderful anti-inflammatory agent and tissue regenerator. High in antioxidants, it offers amazing properties of hydration to the skin and eases conditions brought on by stress, for example, insomnia and tension.   =&10=& Note: Clients will be unwrapped after 25 minutes if entire treatment is administered within our salon.

Fats We Eat

As I blog and share about 10 Diet Mistakes in my Fan Club in FaceBook (FB), some little details within my limited knowledge were still too extensive to be elaborated in the small note space in FB. I wish to jot them down in my blog instead, for my readers who are keen to read more about whichever I knew.

The No. 6 Diet Mistake I have jotted in my Note of FB is about Consumption Fat which has been a major concern by diet and health watchers.

In my note of FB, I mentioned about Fats – Saturated and Unsaturated Fat as well as Trans Fat. To my friends and readers, who wish to know what are those, in a summary of all, and some basic food items which contain these fats, here’s it: read more

Ways to Lose Weight Fast and Healthily

“Points to be remembered, to keep yourself healthy, with fit and good looking appearance!”

I have a cute reader met me in my chat box, cried out for some fast weight lose program from me. Hmm.. Not only for my reader, I guess. It’s for my own good, too.

I think I put on 1 – 2 kg recently (sob. sob). I want to shed some weight now! My latest resolution is to have weight reduction of about 2-3 kg in a month time!

Yes, to refresh my 7-day detox plan which I’ve posted last mid year, I am going to revise a 2nd edition weight losing plan here: read more

My ‘Flavoursome’ 7-Day Detox Plan

” Dieting does not have to be a chore, my 7-Day Detox Plan shares a felicitous diet life with you”

Who says body detoxification program must farmish or eat only bland diet snack bars?

If I go on diet, I’ll take less amount, less oil and less salt food, but definately normal meals. No doubt, we have to forgo some foods such as fried food, processed snack food and alcohol. However, to go with strict liquid or apple-only meals for days isn’t my option so far.

Some of the food are essential in detox diet to support increase of elimination from the body, for instances, yogurt which contains friendly bacteria (acidophilus) that helps to improve digestion and cleanse colon; lemon helps to flush out toxin in the body and aid disgestion; barley helps to reduce body water retention; and, green bean improves slimming effect. So, I included all these in my detox program. read more

No-Meat Diet

“No-Meat Meals for You and Me”

My colleague consulted me if having no-meat diets over a period will help in weight lose and slimming purposes. My answer is YES, to a certain extent (depends on its cooking method and ingredients mixed).

Just to share my experience and personal view with you here…

I had no-meat diet, for a period of 3-month long. It indeed helps me to slim down my body, in weight controlling and gain better health.

My initial intention for having no-meat (vegetarian) diet was due to religious purpose, at the same time, for slimming effect (chuckling). read more
