NIX SAD­DLE­BAGS

First For Women - - Style -

Sure, li­po­suc­tion can re­duce any mushy flab that droops down around the hips and tush—but for an eas­ier (and much more af­ford­able op­tion), con­sider a DIY guarana body mask. “The Brazil­ian fruit con­tains four times the amount of caf­feine as cof­fee and draws ex­cess wa­ter out of fat cells so skin ap­pears tighter,” ex­plains New York City der­ma­tol­o­gist De­bra Jal­i­man, M.D. In one study, women who ap­plied guarana to the area twice a day re­ported a 41% in­crease in skin firm­ness on the tush and 35% around the hips within 12 weeks—but Dr. Jal­i­man notes that it’s pos­si­ble to see re­sults even sooner than that. And when skin is firmer, the butt and hips ap­pear more lifted and youth­ful for an over­all fab­u­lous ap­pear­ance!

In a bowl, com­bine 3 Tbs. of guarana

TO DO: pow­der (like Moun­tain Rose Herbs Guarana Seed Pow­der, Moun­tainRoseHerbs.com) with 2 Tbs. of wa­ter and 4 drops of avo­cado oil (its vitamin E and omega-3 fatty acids boost col­la­gen pro­duc­tion for tauter skin). Ap­ply to the hips and butt; let sit 15 min­utes, then rinse. Re­peat three times a week for a firmer rear view and trim­mer hips within one month.
