Edited by Donna, Alma, Eng, SangeetaB
Homemade slimming creams can help you lose weight through the topical application of a mixture that you can make yourself using ordinary ingredients commonly found in your kitchen cabinet or drug cabinet. They are also sometimes called do-it-yourself fat burning creams or homemade cellulite creams
Method 1: Using Aloe Vera, Eucalyptus and Lemon
This homemade slimming and fat-burning cream works when applied topically because:
- Aloe Vera is a natural tightener and lifter of the skin, helping to shrink pores and make the areas that you treat look slimmer
- Eucalyptus oil is a very potent stimulator of the circulation, which helps your body to eliminate fat and fluids from your tissues
- Eucalyptus cools and heats the skin at the same time, inducing the release of toxins through the skin
- The lemon in this recipe is rich in Vitamin C and Zinc which reduces inflammation, bloating and helps to melt fat from your body
- The body cream is a moisturizer that also works as a carrier that can help deliver the benefits of the aloe vera leaf, eucalyptus oil and lemon juice beneath the skin where it works to dissolve fat
- 1Good choices are Curel, Cetaphil and Aveeno. These inexpensive unscented drug store brands are good for all skin types and also do not contain ingredients that could interfere with the fat-burning effects of the aloe vera gel and eucalyptus.Choose an allergy-safe body lotion to use as a base for the slimming cream.Advertisement
- 2The freshest, most organic source of aloe vera can be squeezed out of an aloe vera leaf, but if that is not available to you then you can also buy commercial versions of the gel in a bottle. Use a jar or a bowl with a lid or cap to store the finished fat-burning cream in so that you can save any excess to use in future treatments.Combine a cup of allergy safe body lotion, a tablespoon of aloe vera gel, 5 drops of pure eucalyptus oil and a tablespoon of organic lemon juice in a bowl and mix the ingredients together well.Advertisement
- 3Do not take a shower after rubbing this cream into your skin. As the aloe vera, eucalyptus and lemon are already mixed with a commercial body lotion, it should sink easily into the skin and not leave it feeling oily or greasy.Apply the slimming cream to the areas you feel need spot reduction and then rub the cream into your skin with firm pressure until it is fully absorbed.
- 4Be sure your skin is clean. Oily skin can prevent absorption of the fat-burning constituents in the aloe vera and eucalyptus oil.Apply this slimming cream to the areas that need slimming body twice a day, both in the morning ad at night.
Method 2: Using Cayenne Pepper, Almond Oil and Beeswax
This homemade slimming and fat-burning cream helps you spot reduce and lose inches because:
- Almond oil is an emollient full of long chain fatty acids that helps smooth the appearance of skin, moisturize it and dissolve fat

- Chili peppers contain capsaicin, which stimulates your circulation and creates a heat that helps your body melt fat and circulate it into your blood for disposal faster
- Cayenne peppers also make your skin sweat, helping to eliminate toxins and excess water through the skin, which may help you look slimmer
- The beeswax is mainly a carrier for the chili pepper, but also is an emollient and tightener that helps tone the skin, thus reducing the look of cellulite
Note that some people are very sensitive to cayenne pepper and can experience a burning sensation or have their skin turn red after applying it so it is a good idea to do a spot test by applying the cayenne pepper slimming cream to a small area of your skin. If your skin turns red, itches or burns, then do not use this type of slimming cream for weight loss. Instead, choose another option that is not so irritating to your skin.
To make a Cayenne Pepper, Almond Oil, and Beeswax slimming cream:
- 1You can also use ground cayenne pepper if you do not mind a cream with a bit more texture, but it is the ground cayenne pepper that will be absorbed more easily into the skin.In a double boiler, melt one cup of almond oil, ½ cup of organic beeswax and two tablespoons of powdered cayenne pepper.Advertisement
- 3This will result in a fluffier mixture with the texture of a real spreadable cream that can be stored for months in a jar or bowl that has a lid.

It is normal for your skin to feel hot or a mild burning sensation at first, as this is indicative of the slimming cream increasing your circulation.Apply the cayenne, almond oil and beeswax slimming cream to the body areas that need spot reduction and let it melt into your skin.
- 5It is best not to apply it just before a shower as the capsaicin could end up in a sensitive part of the body, such as the eyelids or genitals.

Questions and Answers
How to lose weight with strict office schedule with night shifts sometimes. Is there a way to lose weight very fast without exercise and diet?
Hi there, I would like to know the possible and feasible diet plan for a strict schedule at office with night shifts sometimes. I hardly get time to eat or exercise and still want to lose weight. I am a karate student but can attend classes occasionally. Is there a way to lose weight very fast without exercise and diet?
It seems that you cannot or unwilling to commit to the diligence in eating and 7 plus hours a week that you need to lose weight. Unfortunately losing weight in a healthy and natural manner is not possible unless you make time to eat slowly properly, exercise for a least an hour every day and get at least eight hours of sleep every night. If you cannot find a solution on your own to this life style issue, then you might consider visiting a plastic surgeon who provides liposuction and surgery, however keep in mind that this is also a quick fix and that you may continue to gain weight afterwards if you are not able to make some adjustments to your lifestyle.
