Cellulite is very common and affects both men and women. However, women get cellulite much more often than men: between 80 and 90% of all women who have passed puberty have cellulite. For men, the figure is less than 10%.
Genetics, gender, age, body fat percentage and skin thickness determine how much cellulite you have and how visible it is. As we age, the skin loses elasticity, which can make cellulite more prominent. Weight gain or pregnancy can also increase the appearance of cellulite. Although people with obesity have more pronounced cellulite, it is not uncommon for slim people to notice cellulite as well. Cellulite describes fat deposits that are pressing against the connective tissues under the skin. It often appears on the thighs, abdomen and buttocks. Cellulite causes the surface of the skin to look lumpy and uneven or have dimples.
Although cellulite does not affect your overall physical health, it is considered very uncomfortable because of the way it looks. While you can't get rid of cellulite completely, there are ways to improve its appearance. A combination of exercise, diet and treatments can reduce the appearance of cellulite. Regular exercise increases muscle mass, which flattens cellulite. It also increases blood flow to certain areas of the body, which speeds up fat loss. Activities such as running, cycling or resistance training can help improve the appearance of cellulite.
A high calorie diet that contains high amounts of carbohydrates, sugar, fats, preservatives and salt can contribute to the development of cellulite. So, it would be good to avoid these types of foods. In addition, dry brushing helps to stimulate the circulatory and lymphatic systems. A number of other benefits are attributed to the natural skin care method, including the removal of dead skin cells. When combined with a good anti-cellulite gel, waste products and toxins can be eliminated through the lymphatic system. This contributes to a finer skin texture and firmer thighs.

You long to find a remedy that really works against yellow teeth? Are you dreaming of a bright white smile? Then Beneva Black activated charcoal powder is just right for you. Because with natural activated charcoal it cleans the teeth, makes them whiter and is a real detox for your mouth.
Can yellow teeth become white again?
Yes, most discolorations can be removed from the teeth not only with professional bleaching treatments. Activated charcoal also helps to get rid of the annoying discoloration of yellow teeth. Our activated charcoal powder gently absorbs tannins and dyes, which helps against yellow teeth.
In addition, activated charcoal detoxifies your mouth. This detox effect naturally strengthens the oral flora and ensures fresh breath. Say goodbye to bad breath and yellow teeth once and for all!
However, you should also investigate the reasons for your yellow teeth. This way you can avoid future discoloration. The following factors can lead to unsightly plaque:
Your diet: certain foods high in tannins, such as red wine, can cause yellow teeth. One of the most common causes of tooth discoloration is the consumption of beverages such as coffee, tea and wine. These substances penetrate tooth enamel and can cause long-term discoloration.
Smoking: Smoking is one of the main causes of yellow teeth, and the stains caused by smoking can be very persistent. However, smokers can improve the color of their teeth by starting a comprehensive oral care routine of brushing twice daily with activated charcoal powder.
Illness: Certain diseases or medications can also cause yellow teeth. Certain types of prescription medications, including those for asthma and high blood pressure, can lead to discolored teeth.
Poor oral hygiene: Poor oral hygiene is one of the causes of yellow teeth. However, even the most diligent toothbrushers and flossers can get yellow teeth that simply appear with age.
Fluoride: Excessive exposure to fluoride is also one of the causes of discolored teeth, especially in children. Whitening of discolored teeth due to over exposure to fluoride must be done under constant dental supervision.
If any of these causes of discolored teeth have caused you to be unhappy with your smile, you should try Beneva Black activated charcoal powder as well as our flossing sticks. You will be amazed at how easy it is to fight yellow teeth!

Hair loss can have various causes. From hereditary alopecia to hormonal changes and diseases. But hair loss is also a normal part of the aging process. Whatever the reasons for hair loss, we have the solution!
Our award-winning anti-hair loss ingredient Redensyl stimulates hair growth with its innovative formula and helps you achieve thicker hair in 8 weeks. Our anti-hair loss products - Beneva Black Hair Growth Shampoo and Tonic - both contain this high-quality ingredient to help you achieve fuller hair.
The active ingredient biotin also helps to combat hair loss. Taken regularly in the form of a dietary supplement, biotin is a miracle weapon when it comes to hair growth. This is because the co-enzyme strengthens thinning, brittle and dull hair from the inside and gives it new life again.
In most cases, gradual thinning starts at the top of the head. This is the most common form of hair loss that occurs with age. In men, hair often starts thinning at the hairline on the forehead. In women, typically the parting will widen first.
Physical or emotional shock, as well as excessive stress, can also lead to hair loss. When combing or washing the hair, or even with light pulling, individual hairs may come loose. This type of hair loss usually results in a general thinning of the hair, but it is only temporary.
Whatever the reason for your hair loss, our hair growth products will allow you to regain your former hair glory to a certain extent.

Sensitive skin tolerates the use of cosmetics and personal care products less well than normal skin. In surveys, about 50% of women and 40% of men report having sensitive skin. You may not even know you have sensitive skin until you have a bad reaction to a cosmetic product, such as soap, moisturizers or makeup.
Conditions that cause sensitive skin are rarely serious. You can usually control symptoms with a few simple changes to your skin care routine. Here at Beneva Black, you'll find skin care products specifically designed to meet the needs of sensitive skin.
What causes sensitive skin?
Sensitive skin is exacerbated by dry skin. When your skin loses too much water and oil, it can cause the skin to itch, flake or flake, peel or feel rough, or even crack and bleed.
What can you do about sensitive skin?
You can treat dry skin by moisturizing the affected areas. With creams specially formulated for sensitive skin, you can restore your skin's moisture balance without irritating it with harsh ingredients. This will prevent your skin from drying out in the future. Use a fragrance-free moisturizer from our Beneva Black range.
Gentle cleansing: Use a gentle, soap-free cleanser that won't wash out healthy oils.
To moisturize: A gentle, fragrance-free cream-based moisturizer, such as our 24h Sensitive Face Cream, will help lock in moisture and protect your skin throughout the day. If you want to take your skincare routine to the next level, you can apply the 24h Sensitive Serum underneath to help the skincare ingredients penetrate your skin's layers even better. Once a week, it is also recommended to apply a face mask to really pamper your skin and restore its balance. For men, we recommend the Qaveman Sensitive face cream.
General tips for sensitive skin
When you have sensitive skin, it can feel like everything is irritating. But with a few lifestyle changes, you can see a significant improvement. Here are a few tips that can help anyone with sensitive skin:
Take short showers of 5 to 10 minutes with warm - not hot - water
Avoid harsh, coarse-grained facial scrubs
Use a gentle, fragrance-free cleanser, gel or lotion
Use a gentle, fragrance-free detergent
Always use a shaving cream or gel
Gently pat your skin dry after showering (instead of rubbing) and apply a moisturizer immediately
Test new products on a small patch of your skin for at least a day before trying a full application

Blemished skin can become noticeable through various signs. From pimples and blackheads to discoloration of the skin and acne. Blemishes on the face can be frustrating and emotionally upsetting, but they are usually easy to manage with the right skin care products.
Acne is caused when sebum (oil), bacteria or dirt clog hair follicles. Acne can in some cases leave dark spots or scars on the skin. These are also types of blemished skin. Hormonal changes are thought to play a role in the development of acne. Stress can also aggravate acne by increasing sebum production. Hair removal techniques such as tweezing, waxing or shaving can sometimes lead to ingrown hairs. These are hairs that grow back into the skin and become lodged. This can lead to the formation of a red bump. People with curly hair are more prone to ingrown hairs than people with straight hair.
Hyperpigmentation is another form of blemished skin. Overproduction of melanin can cause uneven skin tone or dark spots. Causes of hyperpigmentation include sun exposure and hormonal changes, such as during pregnancy. To avoid blemished skin caused by sun exposure, you should apply a sunscreen daily - yes, even in winter. However, the main reason for blemished skin is clogged pores due to the overproduction of oil from the sebaceous glands. Excess oil can mix with dead skin cells, dirt or bacteria. This leads to the formation of pimples and blackheads.
What can you do to prevent blemished skin?
Your pores can get clogged by products like makeup, hair styling products, sunscreens or moisturizers. So make sure to use products that are labeled as non-comedogenic. These are designed not to clog pores. Tallow is an oily substance made up of fats. However, sebum is not necessarily bad. After all, it protects the skin, moisturizes it, and keeps your hair shiny and healthy. However, too much sebum leads to oily skin, which in turn can lead to clogged pores and acne.
If you're prone to oily skin, you should wash your face twice a day to rid it of excess sebum. But be careful not to overdo it. Avoid harsh soaps or cleansing creams. Instead, use gentle products like our 24h Detox Facial Cleansing Pads. It's tempting to use heavy cosmetics to mask the effects of oily skin, but this can make the condition worse. When oily skin occurs, you should reduce the use of makeup, especially foundation. Choose water-based products instead of oil-based products.
To keep your pores clear, we recommend using a gentle exfoliator 1-2 times a week, such as our Beneva Black Mask or a balancing Purifying Face Mask.
Premature Skin Aging
The aging of your skin is a natural process, but it can be accelerated by a number of environmental factors. Visible signs of premature aging include fine lines, wrinkles, hair loss, and age spots that appear before the age of 30. But don't panic - we have the anti-aging solution to the physical signs of premature aging.
What is premature aging?
The main difference between normal aging and premature aging is the time frame. For most people, fine lines and wrinkles become noticeable in their early 30s, but for people with premature aging, it can occur even earlier. Premature aging is when the signs of aging begin to appear in the mid-20s. In scientific terms, premature aging occurs when a person's biological age is higher than their chronological age.
Signs and symptoms of premature skin aging
Fine lines, wrinkles and grey hair are generally the first things that come to mind when talking about aging. However, aging also includes other signs such as dry or itchy skin, hair loss and hyperpigmentation.
Causes of premature aging
As with many biological conditions, genetics play a role in how quickly we age. However, certain lifestyle factors can accelerate the rate at which we age or develop visible signs of premature aging. When it comes to our skin, sun exposure is the most important external factor in skin aging. Approximately 80% of facial skin aging is due to sun damage from ultraviolet (UV) rays. In addition, smoking has been linked to accelerated skin aging. While these are the biggest culprits, lifestyle factors such as diet, exercise, alcohol consumption and stress can also contribute to skin aging
Treating premature skin aging
Obviously, one should adopt healthy habits, such as quitting smoking to prevent DNA damage, getting enough exercise and eating a healthy diet to compensate for nutrient deficiencies, and increasing intake of antioxidants that can counteract oxidative damage. But there are also external factors that can help reduce premature skin aging.
Here's how to reduce wrinkles and aging skin
Dry or itchy skin: The first step is to properly moisturize your skin as soon as you notice the first signs of premature aging. The outermost layer of our skin, the epidermis, produces hyaluronic acid, a natural substance produced by the body that stores water and hydrates tissues. Unfortunately, production slows as we age, and the resulting dry skin can worsen the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid creams or supplements can help you balance your skin's moisture levels.
Can premature aging be reversed?
Lifestyle choices such as reducing stress, not smoking, eating a nutrient-dense diet and exercising can help slow the overall signs of aging. However, there are also targeted approaches to slow aging in specific areas that are prone to the signs of premature aging.
Retinol: Vitamin A (retinol) has been shown to improve cell turnover, which reverses some of the signs of premature aging by reducing fine lines and wrinkles.
Vitamin C: Vitamin C is one of the most powerful antioxidants. This skin care ingredient fights free radical damage and protects the skin from UVA and UVB rays. It can also promote collagen production, brighten skin, improve skin firmness and soften fine lines and wrinkles.
Sunscreen: since UV rays are a major cause of premature skin aging, protecting against their effects is one of the best things you can do to ensure normal skin aging and prevent skin cancer. Opt for formulations with an SPF of 30 or higher.
