Cinq Mondes Slimming Coffee Cream is a new product made from coffee beans that promises to banish cellulite by breaking down fat and draining away toxins.
While caffeine is better known for boosting flagging energy levels, the latest beauty product maintains that it can help boost blood flow and banish cellulite.
Cinq Mondes Slimming Coffee Cream is infused with caffeine to help drain toxins that cause fatty tissue deposits as well as breaking down fat cells in the skin.
The fat burning action of the caffeine combined with the green coffee, grapefruit acids and kola nut claims to effectively fight cellulite.
Experts recommend that you slather on the cream after exercise as this increasing the blood flow making the cream more effective.
Nataliya Robinson, of Nataliya Robinson Skin Clinic, said: “Yes, coffee can help to break down cellulite.
“Natural materials such as caffeine have firm scientific basis for use in cellulite treatments (topically only), as it can actually stimulate lipolytic activity (fat breakdown).
“Coffee contains xanthines (found in most human body tissues) which increases lipolytic activity.
“The key to using coffee products on cellulite areas is to use it during the time when you are not eating, such as early morning or hour before bedtime, when insulin levels are not active.
“When you consume coffee, this stimulates insulin production and shuts down fat utilization and lipolytic activity.”
