All Buttercup Skincare Cosmetics Firming products will contain Licorice as an active ingredient from now onward. Why was licorice added to my firming products? Licorice helps to reduce fat. How? Licorice helps to reduce the availability of cortisol. When there is stress in the body it releases more cortisol and cortisol causes fat storage beneath the skin and this aggravates cellulite. So therefore a body butter that contains licorice will help to reduce fat and fight the appearance of cellulite.
Licorice can also fight edema which also aggravates cellulite.
Licorice also has anti-inflammatory properties. The anti-inflammatory properties will help to protect the connective tissue of the skin and will therefore suppress enzymes that will degrade collagen. This helps the collagen in the skin to stay firmer. Keep the skin firm and help to fight fat. Two great reasons to add licorice root into my firming products.
