What is Arkopharma Lipoféine Gel 5% Anti Cellulite used for?
There are several methods to lose weight . A healthy diet and a minimum of training are the key to weight loss . Arkopharma Lipoféine Cosmetics Anti Rebellious Cellulite is a slimming gel that helps you lose those stored pounds. This gel is recommended for the treatment of localized subcutaneous fat deposits (cellulite).
Lipoféine is composed of 5% caffeine . Caffeine helps reduce fat storage in adipocytes. It also makes it possible to destock the fats already present in the adipocyte and it has the role of disinfiltrating the supporting tissue of the adipocyte. Another active ingredient in Lipoféine is macrogol 7 glycerol cocoate. Macrogol 7 glycerol cocoate is a derivative of coconut oil . This oil has the role of providing soft skin after the application of Lipoféine.

Your pharmacist's advice on anti-cellulite treatment
Sport and doping: If you are a professional athlete, you should check with your organization about this happening. Since Lipoféine contains caffeine, you may find traces of caffeine in your urine. However, in some sports, Lipofeine could be considered a doping product.
THE SKIN: The skin is the only organ of the human body in contact with both the internal environment of the body and the external environment.
It is composed of 3 layers: epidermis, dermis, hypodermis.
We can compare the structure of the skin to a house, as follows:
- The epidermis: protective tissue will correspond to the roof
- The dermis: part providing support, elasticity and nutrition will have the role of framework
- The hypodermis: fatty mattress can be compared to the walls of a house
ADIPOCYTES: Normally our body stores fats (or lipids) in specialized cells: adipocytes.
These cells located in the hypodermis, the deepest part of the skin, are grouped in small clusters bounded by support spans (connective tissue) like the meshes of a net.
This fat store is absolutely necessary. It is indeed our reservoir of energy.
Depending on the needs of our organism, our heredity and physical activity, these fats are transformed into assimilable fatty acids, under the action of enzymes (phenomenon of lipolysis).
It may happen that this mechanism is not enough to compensate the storage processes. This then results in an accumulation of fat in the adipocytes. Inflated with fatty acids, they increase in volume.
The support fabric, which is not stretchy, reacts and thickens and this is the reason for this orange peel appearance that your skin takes on.
Cellulite a typical female problem
- Hormonal causes (estrogen)
- Larger fat lobules
- Thinner skin
Important distribution of adipocytes: thighs/buttocks/hips.
Cellulite and chronobiology
Morning: Your body tends to break down fat at the start of the day.
Evening/night: The body spends less energy. Your body tends to store fat more easily.
Remember to adapt your diet to your biological rhythm: eat hearty in the morning, protein at noon and light in the evening.
Most women have cellulite from adolescence. Many factors favor its appearance and it is difficult to escape it completely. On the other hand, it is important to adopt good habits fairly early on, to limit cellulite and feel better about yourself.
Massages are part of the good habits to adopt, this sheet will allow you to understand why and to know how to proceed.
Why do massages help fight "orange peel skin"?
Cellulite is a fatty tissue composed of clusters of round cells (adipocytes) separated by fibrous partitions and strongly irrigated by blood capillaries.
- Orange peel skin is due to the existence of fat storage areas associated with the loss of elasticity of the skin.
- Improving skin suppleness is essential to fight against the orange peel appearance (note other measures must also be taken such as monitoring your diet and practicing physical activity regularly).
- The massage makes it possible to soften, restructure and decongest the tissues.
- The movement of the massage promotes drainage which helps fight against cellulite.
What is the point of combining an anti-cellulite cream with massage?
The application of anti-cellulite cream is done by massage; which helps to act effectively against cellulite.
Some products promote microcirculation, others stimulate fat destocking or both. The application of slimming products can be beneficial if it is regular or in several cures during the year.
How to proceed at home to apply an anti-cellulite cream?
- Massage daily by applying the product by light effleurage on the area to be treated, then perform deep kneading: on the stomach, waist, thighs, inside the knees or others.
- Perform a palpate-roll by grabbing a fold of skin using both hands and sliding it between your fingers, repeat this gesture at least 3 times for each area.
- Drain the lower limbs by positioning the hands in a bracelet around the ankle and go up towards the groin, gently but with light pressure.
