Firmer skin in just a few minutes per day? by Bellabaci Esthetician and Cupping Expert, Nicolette - My Spa Shop

Firmer skin in just a few minutes per day? Yes, please!


Did you know that firmer skin will reduce the visibility of cellulite? The healthier and thicker your collagen layer is, the younger and smoother your body will be, simple as that. Read more on how skin resilience can be achieved with just a few minutes per day.

Skin 101 – How is the skin structured?

First, let’s have a look at the anatomy that runs skin deep. Your outermost layer of skin is known as the Epidermis, which consists of 6 layers, but all in all is actually paper thin. In these layers you have your immune cells, pigment cells and its main function is to act as a protective barrier to the elements.

The next layer is your dermis. This layer is filled with:

  • sweat glands
  • hair follicles
  • blood vessels
  • nerve receptors
  • connective tissue (collagen and elastin)

The layer beneath that is the first of three layers of subcutaneous fat. And it is here where those lumpy lumps form. These layers consist of “standing fat cell chambers, which are separated by connective tissue. The fat cell chambers also have protrusions of fat cells which connect to the dermis. When the subcutaneous fat layer is uneven, it gives that orange peel effect we have all come to know and despise..

How does connective tissue influence your cellulite?

When the connective tissue which is lending the support and structure to keep these fatty chambers upright become weak, your dimples become more prominent. This is the start of cellulite.

What can impact connective tissues causing them to become weak?  

Studies suggest that between 80% and 90% of all women experience cellulite at one point in their lives. So, hoping that it will not happen to you is unrealistic. You can develop cellulite on your skin because:

  • Fat cells enter the layers of skin
  • Hormonal imbalance
  • Weak blood circulation
  • Fluid retention
  • Aging
  • Low collagen production

One or more of these causes can damage the appearance of your skin, making your body look fat or unfit. Excessive cellulite may not only affect your looks but your self-esteem as well, as you envison your youthful attractiveness gradually fading away.

Did you know:  Poor circulation means there is a restriction in blood flow. Blood carries oxygen and much-needed nutrients to the connective tissue. A restriction of blood to the cells causes them to become weak and the process of degeneration begins.

How do you create firmer skin?

In one simple word, we can say MASSAGE! And by that, we mean deep, proper and result-yielding massage. This is why the Bellabaci Cupping Massage system has been such a success, for professional and home use. The application of a result-driven product (we recommend the Cellulite Be Gone Genie Massage oil) is reinforced by the process of reverse osmosis.

The cups also work up to 4 inches deep, and an immediate boost in circulation sees to the nourishment of all the cells, from the most superficial to the deepest of cells. This process creates firmer skin and also keeps your cellulite at bay. Isn’t it time you try what really works?

It’s our favorite part of a facial: those blissful few minutes when the aesthetician massages a serum or moisturizer into the face, gently releasing the tension from the temples, cheeks, jaw and neck. But while they might induce a few z’s, those deliberate massage strokes are designed to do more than just help us relax.
