On Saturday 1st June my Proskins 28 day challenge commenced!
Proskins (@ProskinsLtd) are a company specialising in sports compression wear and have developed leggings that claim to help the wearer slim by up to 2cm around the thighs and reduce the appearance of cellulite.
The technology behind the garments include:
- Caffeine – A renowned active slimming agent that activates micro-circulation and promotes fat destruction
- Retinol – A skin regenerator which stimulates collagen, giving a youthful appearance to the skin
- Vitamin E – An antioxidant that helps the skin appear young and fresh
They also include silver anti-bacterial agents to prolong the usage of the garment.
After reading a number of reviews (and the fact I needed new leggings anyway) I decided to step up to the challenge!
I opted to size down and I am glad I did as I think my size would have been a little loose and with prolonged wear perhaps sag – or at least do so when I have lost further weight. The leggings fit like a dream and are unbelievably light especially when you have to wear them for a minimum of 8 hours a day (you can even choose to wear to bed!) and when they say you can wear under jeans they really mean it – although I haven’t done so yet, instead opting for a tunic style top and even maxi dresses over the top seen as though the weather has been so kind.
So far the claims that they help smooth the skin seem to be realistic. Day 1 the skin on my legs can get unbelievably flaky and I am constantly exfoliating and moisturising, but after 8 hours in the Proskins there was no flaking of the skin and they felt silky to the touch. They also claim to help flush toxins out of your body in which you should find yourself visiting the bathroom more often – by Day 3 this seemed to be the case!
I’m currently on Day 4 and haven’t washed the leggings yet – they still smell pretty fresh, although I think they are going to have to go in the wash tonight. I just don’t feel that I can wear anything longer than 4 days without washing!
If all I get from these are smoother legs for summer I will be happy, but if the claims that they can help you lose cm’s come true I’ll be ecstatic!
I will be taking on the challenge with my existing healthy eating and fitness regime so fingers crossed they will help speed up the results!
At the moment, Proskins are conducting a #28DayChallenge where you can obtain a pair of the 28 Day Slim Leggings for £25 (50% off RRP).
