Sélection de gels et crèmes pour les jambes lourdes

Summer and the heat are definitely here, which can cause heavy and painful legs, especially at the end of the day. This phenomenon, which affects more and more women, but also men, is the result of poor blood circulation. With high temperatures, the veins dilate and the blood does not rise properly. To remedy this, many cosmetic brands have launched creams, gels or even oils with refreshing and toning effects. Indeed, the cold is known to improve venous return, facilitate drainage and relieve congestion. Once applied, the legs benefit from an almost instantaneous feeling of freshness and are much lighter. Selection.
