Body wraps can help firm and tone the skin, reduce cellulite, smooth body contours and make the skin feel softer. Used in conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise, wraps can significantly improve your shape!
Because they simultaneously compress body tissues and raise skin temperature, body wraps shrink fat cells, making skin appear tighter.
They are most effective on the upper arms, stomach, buttocks and thighs—all places where the fat can gather in the bumpy texture we call cellulite.
Body wraps are easy to do yourself. Measure the parts of your body you want to wrap. Then gently brush your skin using a downward motion to remove dead skin cells and stimulate circulation.
Apply an herbal body wrap cream or lotion and wrap yourself snugly using heavy duty Saran Warp. Many women have had great results from exercising while wrapped, which creates more heat on the wrapped areas.
You can also soak elastic bandages in a solution of herbs and minerals and essential oils, then wrap with Saran Wrap and lie down for an hour. If you have known plant allergies, check to make sure that none of the plant substances to which you are allergic have been used in the solution for your wrap.
Either way, once your wrap is complete, take a cool shower and towel dry thoroughly before taking your measurements again.
Most people experience some inch loss immediately after a body wrap. However, because toxins and excess fluids eventually re-accumulate in body tissues, repeating body wrapping periodically provides the best long-term benefits.
