Proskin 28 Day Blogger Challenge Week 2 Update

Hi everyone, this is a super quick post to update you all on my Proskin progress, or maybe the lack of there of!

I will be honest with you, I had a hard time wearing the leggings for 8 hours a day everyday! But then Debra posted an extremely helpful Q&A on our Facebook page, which said I can wear my proskins to bed! And that changed everything! (I did have some weird action dreams the first night, but that can be Elysium related as well 😉 )

I also haven’t been working out as much as I thought I would! Even though I got a Tracy Anderson workout, I’ve been really good at procrastinating, but did walk a lot, especially on Monday, when Sam and I went around Lake Harriet.

Now just so that we are all clear on where and what I am measuring, here is a handy chart:

Measurements

So let’s see:

Week 1 Week 2
Hips 35” 33”
Top of thigh 21.5” 21”
Widest part of thigh 21.5” 21.5”
Above knee 15” 15”
Below knee 12.5” 13”
Widest part of calf 13.5” 13”

As you can tell there’s been some improvement, some measurements stayed the same, and for some reason my “below the knee” area got bigger 🙂 I am still rather skeptical about the  challenge!

Let’s see what Week 3 will bring!

Proskin 28 Day Blogger Challenge: Week 1

A couple weeks ago I came across a #BloggerChallenge on Twitter, and not knowing what it was, decided to look into it! And it turned out that it was, well a blogger challenge, organized by Proskin! I have heard of that brand before, but didn’t know exactly what they were about. After looking into it, I found out that Proskin is a brand that makes leggings that are supposed to tighten your skin and help you loose inches off your thighs!

So I decided to give it a shot. I was always curious to see if such things worked (especially after reading all the claims on their website!). I applied for the program, filled out my social media info and got approved almost instantly!

The leggings shipped extremely fast and got here (US) from England in about a week, and of course I immediately put them on! They are not just nice looking, but nice feeling leggings too! They are incredibly easy to style and I know I’ll be wearing them a lot more in the fall with all my dresses and skirts:

What hooked me though, were the ingredients (info taken off their official US website  http://www.proskinus.com

How Proskins Slim Works

COMPRESSION FABRIC– A controlled level of pressure promotes blood circulation and lymphatic drainage, flushing fluid and toxins which would cause cellulite out of the body. The appearance of cellulite is reduced, giving a more even skin tone through the strengthening of connective tissues in the legs, buttocks and hips.

PATENTED MICRO-ENCAPSULATED YARN– The fabric is impregnated with microcapsules containing the finest active natural ingredients. These are massaged into the skin during wear, leaving the skin feeling soft and smooth. The microcapsules in the fabric are guaranteed to remain in the garment for at least 100 washes.

How Proskin Slim Works

What the Microcapsules contain:

Caffeine – A renowned active slimming agent that activates micro-circulation and promotes fat destruction.

Retinol – A skin regenerator, which stimulates collagen, giving youthful appearance to the skin.

Vitamin E – An antioxidant that helps the skin feel smoother and softer.

Aloe Vera – To help the skin feel smoother and softer.

Ceramides – Restores the skin’s barrier system providing an immediate tensor effect.

Fatty Acids – Natural ingredients existing in our skin. They are the perfect vehicles to improve the penetration of the rest of the active principles into the skin.

Slim by Proskins contain silver, an anti-bacterial treatment for extended wear and improved garment life. They also include a moisture management software that regulates body temperature to 37° degrees C.

So why not try it, and see if they work! I will be posting measurements once a week for the next four weeks to help track my progress (or maybe a lack of it). But keep in mind, I work out, and try eat somewhat healthy on most occasions ;)!

A representative of Proskin also told me that to reach better results it’s important to wear your pair of leggings for at least 8 hours a week. Which I am going to admit will be hard, but possible! So here we go!

Measurements – Week 1

Hips 35″

Top of Thighs 21.5″

Widest Part of Thigh 21.5″

Above knee 15″

Below Knee 12.5″

Widest part of calf 13.5

I hope you enjoy this project with me! And let me know if you think there will be any changes!

По-русски: Мне всегда было интересно проверить работают ли там всякие чудо штаны, ремни, пояса и так далее! Поэтому когда я увидела в Твиттере один интересный хештэг, я решила попробовать легинсы Proskin на себе! Это британская фирма, которая не так известна в США. Ну и пиарятся они засчет блогеров, это понятно! 

Чудо-штаны мне прислали на прошлой неделе, и я конечно же сразу в них влезла! Они очень удобные, черные, надписей, кроме как названия бренда на поясе нигде больше нет. Смотрятся с платьем очень даже ничего. Так что носить можно. Конечно же в наше жаркое лето их особенно не поносишь, а носить, как сказал мне представитель компании нужно как минимум 8 часов в день. Что в моем случае проблематично, но возможно. Сложнее всего я думаю будет на выходных.

Хочется конечно отметить, что кроме этих чудо штанов, я также занимаюсь спортом и пытаюсь (да, именно пытаюсь) правильно питаться! 

Ну посмотрим! Заказала я все это конечно больше из любопытства и потому что на халяву. А то что штаны пропитаны чудо микрокапсулами в состав которых входит кофеин, ретинол А, витамин Е, алое вера, керамиды и жирные кислотоы, не может не радовать! 

В общем в путь!
