Horse chestnut, bye bye heavy legs.

Horse chestnut, buy bye heavy legs, because it helps greatly blood circulation. In fact, horse chestnut has many benefits including preventing varicose veins and phlebitis, and relieving, aching, painful legs, leg cramps and swollen Ankles. Another great benefit it fights cellulite. If you suffer from these symptoms, and you  love natural remedies, this is one for you. 

Horse chestnut to say bye bye heavy legs. The good weather arrives and if for some of us it means get tan legs and skirts For other, it is the beginning of sore legs. Indeed, for many heat rhymes with tired, heavy legs, pain, cramps and swelling.

Horse Chestnut seeds help to cool and relieve legs that feel heavy and uncomfortable. Thanks to its active ingredients the aescin and the flavonoid, horse chestnut tightens the veins allowing the blood to flow better. There are several forms; gel or food supplement, prefer well known brands (Vogel, …), A.Vogel Venaforce Horse Chestnut tablets.

This natural remedy is also good for cellulite. Cellulite is often accompanied by water retention. Water retention is usually aggravated by heat and it localizes inside the knees and ankles. In this case, we must treat cellulite as venous insufficiency, and horse chestnut  is perfect in his role. Massaging your legs with Horse Chestnut Gel greatly helps fighting water retention and therefore cellulite. It is a great product to use when you travel, for example for a long flight.

Horse chestnut also reduces dark circles. Horse chestnut was adopted by the cosmetics industry for its astringent quality; it tightens tissue. It is also very interesting in case of rosacea caused by veins’ fragility, as well as dark circles which are also a form of edema. Its active ingredient, the aescin inhibits the action of certain ensymes implicated in the degradation of acid hyalunorique constituting the veins and the dermis. Horse chestnut helps vessels and skin to regain their balance, so it reduces dark circles and rosacea.

Horse chestnut is a great natural product, but it is still considered as a medicine in France. It is not advised for pregnant or breastfeeding women, in case of renal insufficiency, and hepatic insulin dependent diabetes, as well as anticoagulants, lithium, and antidiabetics treatments. Otherwise it is full of virtues, and to prevent the poor circulation and bad legs symptoms starting, it is recommended to start a course of horse chestnut during the early summer, in fact now.

Tone up fast, summer is coming, prepare your bikini body now

Tone up now, summer is coming, prepare your bikini body now, hey chipies, here you will find tips, exercises to tone up.

Tone up, a toned and lean body is the dream of many of use, so I share with you my finding for a superb bottom. In ES Magazine of Friday 6th January 2012, a simple yet useful reminder on how having super glutes! Again the donkey kick is recognized as the best weapon to have nice glutes. On all fours, abs braced, kick one leg up in the (knee bent at 90 degrees throughout) Aim for 3 sets of 15 repetitions each side, and make sure your hips don’t twist round as you kick.

You will also find this exercise in my favorite Pilates DVD to tone up, Pilates For Life, Darcey Bussell. Many exercises aims at working your body to be toned and lean, be disciplined do your workout 3 times a week and you will soon see the difference.

In Harper’s Bazaar of May 2012, there are many advice to get toned.  One  of them given by trainer Simone de la Rue, I must admit I did not know her but she is apparently the new Tracey Anderson. Now, her secrets if you want to tone are: is to focus on resistance training. The trick to to getting toned is to work the muscles to exhaustion with 30, even 40 reps. Focus on the quality too, really feel your body. Again, she recommends the donkey kick, the best bottom firmer:

– Start on all fours, then bring one knee into the chest and kick it back, keeping the leg parallel to the floor, foot pointed and above hip level, and repeat. If you don’t have time or feel lazy, if there is one exercise to do, this is this one.

– Another good exercise, lie one one side, hip level, legs straight. With feet flexed, slowly raise the lower the top leg, making sure the ankles touch when the top leg lowers.

– And finally, lie on your back, propped up on your elbows with one leg bent, then raise and lower the other straight leg, point the foot when lifting and flex it when lowering to fully work more muscles.

Another very good DVD to pratice this type of exercises, is Yogalates 6 For Weight Loss [DVD] which incorporate pilates, yoga and dance, the secrets for a lean and toned body.

My tip, which a pro tip too, slow down your movements. Fast movements relies more on momentum than muscle effort. Slow movements help to get those lean, feminine muscles.

Carla Bruni beauty secrets

Carla Bruni beauty secrets. As promised Petite Chipie shares with you the secret of French women secrets.

Carla Bruni beauty secrets is the first of First of French women secrets.

Carla Bruni is a devotee of Caudalie Beauty Elixir. Inspired by the “elixir of youth” used by Queen Isabelle of Hungary, this treatment smoothes features, tightens pores, and gives the complexion a burst of radiance.

This product is for all skin lacking radiance. For an anti-dullness complexion, ideal for smokers. It is just magical, apply it between your foundation and powder to perfectly set makeup. It makes an huge difference.

Carla Bruni loves this product. I read she even personally called the company’s founder to rave about it.

Caudalie, this is the story of a discovery: grape seeds. Thus Caudalie was born and is the wine therapy. She is the daughter of an owner of the Bordeaux wine (vintage Graves) who with her husband creates Caudalie. Their mission is to formulate products from research on natural products in the greatest respect for the skin and the environment.

They are among the first laboratories to use a natural rather synthetic preservative paraben based products …… and that’s great!!

Caudalie Beauty Elixir is based on a six centuries old recipe. The story said,  it was given to Dona Izabella, Queen of Hungary, then aged 72, by a hermit. Thanks to this preparation, she healed and she covered her strength. She even claims that the King of Poland have wanted to marry her, lovely!

The original formula was to macerate 600 g of rosemary flowers in one liter of alcohol at 90  degres in a glass bottle and to exposure it to the sun for 5 to 6 weeks. In the meantime, you were supposed to stir the mixture every morning and evening. After this time, you could proceed by filtering through a fine cotton cloth.

But since I do not have time or inclination to get into the manufacture of this magic potion, I buy Caudalie Beauty Elixir. It is made of natural ingredients: grape, orange blossom, rose, organic balm mint, rosemary. I use Beauty Elixir as a pre-application for the Serum and Day Cream SPF10 .

French Doctor Love tips for dates?

This week in the French Grazia, Doctor Love, gave its recipe for to seduce a man during a first date.

French Doctor love tips for dates is based on the study of 437 men (theoretically French) and issued a non exhaustive list of behaviours which are “clinically” prove to stimulate men.

Now, to me it is really obsolete and prosaic. Woman smile, but not too much, express your cleverness and success but not too much in case…and above all flatter me, adore me…of course we want to adore you and admire you dealing! but with reciprocity! This “French Doctor love tips” reminds me of an extract from the manual good wife’s guide, from the 60s!
Anyway, this may be because Chipie is a rebel in the soul, because reality is I have indeed noticed that this list of behaviours pleasing our men ego, is true:

– Laughing loudly: 3.4%

– Shy smile: 78%

– Fiddling your hair: 66.4%

– Looking at him with admiration: 97.9% (really?)

– Compliment him about his cleverness or strength: 51%

– Compliment him about his clothes or haircut: 24%

– Professional Conceit: 29%

– Embarrassed silence: 53%

– Funny jokes: 32%

– Not so funny jokes: 32%

– Laughing at his jokes: 98%

– Gently touching his forearm: 89%

– Erotic confessions: 11%

– Familial confessions: 7%

– Clumsiness (shaking, blushing,…): 72%

– Clumsiness due to alcohol: 14%

– Pay the bill: 12%

A little food for thoughts…
