Weight Loss Wraps – Lose Weight, Detox, and Fight Cellulite

A weight loss wrap won’t get you a body with ripped, toned abs like the ones you see on fitness magazines and TV. You also won’t dramatically lose all your weight within a few weeks of having a body wrap. It just doesn’t work that way. Sorry.

However, if you need to lose some inches fast to help you fit into an old dress, make your skin glow or feel better about yourself, a body wrap might just be what you need.

Here’s what a body wrap can do for you.

  • It can help you lose inches
  • It can help you get rid of toxins from your body (detox)
  • Tighten and make the skin look firm
  • Make your skin glow by moisturizing and nourishing your skin

SHOULD YOU MAKE YOUR OWN BODY WRAP OR VISIT A SPA?

Well, it all depends. If you’ve got limited time and some money to spend, going to a spa might be your best option. You get to meet a trained spa practitioner who’d made the process enjoyable and less stressful for you.

However, if you could spare a little time of yours to create your body wrap, then, by all means, go for it. Creating your own DIY body weight loss wrap is not only cheaper than visiting a spa but also more flexible  in terms of use.

Moreover, if you plan to do a body wrap on a regular basis rather than a one-time thing, then it’s more economical to create your own weight loss body wrap.

HOW TO DO A BODY WRAP AT HOME

  1. To get the best result out of a body wrap treatment, it is recommended that you exfoliate the skin where you’re going to use the wrap on.
  2. Once you exfoliate the area you want to use the wrap on, apply the mixture (find the recipe below) to the area. Follow this by wrapping up the area with an elastic bandage and a plastic wrap.
  3. Cover yourself with a blanket or heating pad to make your body sweat. You need to wait for at least an hour or more during this stage. If possible, engage in any activity that can help facilitate your body to sweat.
  4. Unwrap yourself by removing the plastic wrap and bandages. Follow this by a warm shower to remove the gunks on your body.
  5. Moisturize your body
