Even though the scientific community may not agree with the benefits body wraps have, there are countless websites, spa treatments and online products that are available today because people have good results from body wraps. So, here are some wraps you can try in the comfort of your home.
5 DIY Body Wraps That Actually Work:
1. Body Wrap for Cellulite
First you should know that a body wrap will not melt the excess fat, but it can improve the appearance of the skin and at the same time get rid of the ugly bumps. Here’s a recipe with ingredients you already have in your kitchen:
Mix 1 cup of coffee grounds, 2 tbsp coconut oil, or if you don’t have any you can use olive and 1 tbsp of lemon juice. Warm this mixture in the microwave for 30 seconds and then just massage it into the problematic area. When this is done cover the area with plastic wrap and leave it to act for 30 minutes. Wash off with warm water and you’re done.
2. Body Wrap for Detox
To prepare this recipe you’ll need 1 cup bentonite clay, which you can find online or in some health food stores, 2 cup brewed green tea, sports bandages, or a cut up sheet, and a plastic wrap.
Put all the ingredients in a non-metallic bowl and mix them using a wooden spoon. The bentonite can extract properties from the metal that can be absorbed into the skin and you don’t want that to happen. Massage the mixture on the affected area, whether it’s the thighs, stomach, arms, or other. Secure the mixture with cloth wraps and cover with plastic wrap so that it stays on.
Keep the wraps on for one hour, while drinking water frequently, then unwrap and take a shower to clean the clay from the skin.
3. Body Wrap for Slimming
This recipe can be a little messy, so it is best if you stand on a towel or in the bathroom when you try it. Mix 2 tbsp coconut oil, ¼ cup Epsom salt or sea salt, 2 bags of green tea and 1 tbsp cacao powder to form a paste. Spread the paste on your stomach until all the affected area is covered. Wrap this part of your body with plastic wrap. You can add sports bandages over the plastic wrap to secure the wrap.
Put on an old t-shirt and relax for a couple of hours with a heating pad on your belly. It is very important to stay hydrated. Remove the wrap and massage it well before getting it cleaned with a shower.
4. Body Wrap to Reduce Stretch Marks
Camphor and oils in vapor rub will not only make your skin softer, but it will also reduce the dryness that makes stretch marks more noticeable. Before going to bed, try rubbing the vapor rub on your stretch marks, wrap your belly with a plastic wrap and put on a pair of leggings and a t-shirt and go to sleep.
It may be necessary to repeat this process a couple nights in a row, depending on the severity of the marks, but do not despair, the results will come!
5. Body Wrap for Loose Skin
It doesn’t matter if it’s post-partum or you’ve dropped some weight too quickly, most women have problems with sagging skin. This recipe is incredibly simple, and you only need one ingredient – Vitamin E oil. Just rub the oil on your belly and wrap it with plastic wrap. Keep it on for an hour and a half and then take a shower. To clean the oil more easily you can use sea salt or coffee in the shower. After the shower apply a good quality butter lotion on your skin.
