The constant application of an oil rich in arnica extract will help you relieve heaviness in your legs before and after exercising. To enhance the toning effect, just after exercising and before applying the product with arnica, take a quick contrast shower—changing the water temperature very quickly: hot-cold-hot-cold—and apply the cosmetic massaging with movement. ascending, always promoting blood circulation.

Arnica helps reduce the discomfort caused by contractures, so we recommend applying your cream or oil rich in arnica after a warm shower, on the contractured area just before going to sleep to promote rest and relaxation of the muscles.

8. Frequently asked questions:

Can I use arnica if I am pregnant?

The answer is no, but we recommend that you consult with your doctor, midwife or dermatologist.

Is it effective for acne?

Yes, a cosmetic with arnica helps you in case of acne due to its anti-inflammatory properties, relieving heat, swelling and redness. Keep in mind that acne is a chronic inflammatory disease where the sebaceous gland is affected and therefore, we should not put all our hopes on a single product and much less on a single ingredient.

How to use arnica for joint problems or when you have suffered a blow and the area is swollen?

With a warm poultice, which you can make using pink clay, rose hydrolate and arnica extract. Once you have everything mixed (it should be a semi-solid paste) you leave it on the area to be treated for 20-30 minutes, you would put a gauze on it and wrap it with osmotic film so that it penetrates more easily. Once the time has passed, rinse with plenty of warm water.
