When we featured Proskin’s Magic Leggings back on Shoppersbase a few months ago, we were a tad dubious to the claims that they could make ladies legs slimmer and reduce the amount of cellulite. However, since then they have had a few celebrity endorsements, from none other than Dannii Minogue, Pamela Anderson and Kirsty Alley. But the latest lovely lady to step out in a pair and extol the virtues of wearing them is our very own Lisa Riley, who is currently competing in Strictly Come Dancing with Robin Windsor.
The Emmerdale actress tweeted on her Twitter account that ‘They’re amazing!’ and said that the magic leggings that helped her lose a stone in just one month. Proskins Slim leggings claim to shrink thighs, combat cellulite and rid body of excess fluid by stimulating the lymphatic system and Miss Riley certainly looked as gorgeous as slim as she’d ever been as she attended last night’s Pride of Britain Awards in London with her Strictly dance partner Robin Windsor. You might think that it could be down to her strenuous dance routines on Strictly that have helped her shed the pounds but Miss Riley is insistent that it is not just her fancy dance moves on the floor that have not only endeared her to the voting public, but her leggings that have helped her to get rid of a few pounds as well.
The leggings don’t come cheap however and retail at online for £50 from their website, Proskins.
Miss Riley looked absolutely stunning in a floor-length patterned purple leopard print dress, says that she has been wearing her leggings every time she rehearses with Robin and recently tweeted: ‘I ADORE my pro skin leggings, they are amazing and make my legs look a lot smaller than they are! I would recommend them xxx’ Makers of the Proskins Slim leggings say the compression fabric works in a similar way to high-tech sportswear, giving legs a steady, firm pressure which they claim improves blood flow. This helps stop fat cells from sticking to connective tissue in the thighs and bottom, a cause of cellulite, and fight fluid retention around the calves and ankles. Caffeine woven into the fabric smooths and plumps the skin, reducing the ‘orange peel’ effect, they add. Independent tests by French firm Dermascan found wearers lost up to 2cm off their thighs.
