FLATTEN THE BELLY
The latest cosmetic breakthrough for a trim tummy involves freezing fat cells so they burn off their fat stores as they work to warm up. For an at-home approach that works in a similar way, experts recommend a chilled seaweed wrap. An ice pack delivers the chilling effect while the iodine in seaweed increases circulation to help flush out trapped fluids and increase the activity of fat-burning enzymes.
TO DO: paste with 1⁄2 cup of seaweed powder (like Starwest
1⁄3 cup of water and 5 drops of peppermint essential oil (its menthol draws out fat-promoting toxins). Apply to the belly, loosely wrap plastic wrap around it, then place two ice packs on top of the plastic wrap. Let sit 30 minutes, then remove the plastic and rinse skin. Repeat twice a week for results in 30 days.
