|Eccola, ma come si usa?|
When I looked for the first time the pink cup by Weleda to massage the skin in order to let the oil in against cellulite, I wondered if it was really necessary. Because, after so many years and so many creams, I prefer to use my hands to stimulate the circulation. Yet this cup, rather large, robust and flexible, if used correctly, vacuum on the skin, has its benefits. It acts in depth, the skin reddens a little, and works to drain fluids through an oil made from the leaves of birch (purifying), apricot kernel (regenerating), wheat germ (vitamin E), ruscus aculeatus (it contrasts the stagnation of liquids) and rosemary (it stimulates metabolism).

The oil is quickly absorbed and has no particular fragrance, it makes the skin soft. But this work needs to be done every day, it can be effective only if combined with a healthy lifestyle. Including movement (at least 30 minutes a day) and eating as much as possible fruits, vegetables and less preservatives, industrial products, sweets... This is not just Weleda's thinking (a bio company founded a hundred years ago by Rudolf Steiner, father of anthroposophy, and by the doctor Ita Wegman). It's also my personal belief: If you do not care deep in the body, you can not hope to achieve convincing results in the long term.

For this reason Weleda combines in a pack two complementary products, oil and decoction of birch, for a draining action. A herbal doctor explained to me last week that to be truly effective a treatment must last at least 40 days. During this period, breast-feeding, I can not drink decoctions. But I try to support the work of the cup+oil with a light green tea every night. The results are already visible :)

P.S. From anthroposophy has come also the Waldorf pedagogy with its gorgeous schools. I have visited one, in the Veneto region, surrounded by a giant park. Inside it was all wood, green out to the eye :)
Il pack completo di coppetta, olio e decotto di betulla costa 30 euro (prezzo speciale).
