Belly fat makes it hard to fit into attractive pants, skirts or shirts. Belly fat also disrupts the way that your natural waist looks and makes you look heavier than you are. Help rid yourself of belly fat by coupling a good diet with a proper exercise routine and adding in cinnamon lotion to help your skin tighten. Cinnamon lotion is mostly used in cellulite massage, and according to Natural Fat Loss's site on Home Remedies for Cellulite, the massage with cinnamon lotion can help reduce the cellulite that adds to belly fat.
Make a cinnamon based essential oil massage lotion by taking a lotion base, like a plain, unscented and unflavored massage lotion, and adding one tablespoon of cinnamon for every 12 ounces of lotion. Or, purchase a cinnamon based lotion at your local department store or health products store. Add other essential oils, or purchase a lotion with cinnamon and other oils as you wish. Those that work well with cinnamon to reduce belly fat include clove, chamomile, germanium, sandalwood, rosemary and lavender. You can combine these oils with cinnamon and use liberally and freely to help promote a reduction in belly fat.
Use the cinnamon lotion with added essential oils to massage your belly and other areas where fat has built up. The cinnamon triggers your skin to tighten and firm by helping to rejuvenate your skin cells, break down dying cells and build new cells. Cinnamon acts as an accelerator, helping new skin cells to grow more quickly to replace cells that are old and damaged. As new skin cells grow, they use up the energy stored in the cellulite, or belly fat. As the energy is burned up, so is the fat itself.
Repeat the massage twice a day, being sure to massage all areas of your belly. Along with the rejuvenation of cells, cinnamon helps to tighten and firm your skin by causing it to constrict. Cinnamon naturally causes constriction, and as your skin constricts and become tighter, the belly fat or cellulite disappears.
Continue to use cinnamon lotion on your skin, and to infuse your massage with other essential oils that are also fat fighting. After six to eight weeks of massage, you will find a reduction in the amount of belly fat you have.
