A body wrap has one main goal, which is to make you super sweaty. The idea is to help you lose inches by sweating out toxins and ridding your body of bloat that can make you look larger than you are. The results of a body wrap are similar to those you experience after sitting in a sauna or hot tub, but are amplified quite a bit. The goal is to help you whittle inches and lose weight. You can get a body wrap done at most spas, but you can also make one at home. Make sure you understand the technique so you get the most out of it. You can find more information from myawesomebeauty.com regarding ingredients, method and more. In the meantime, try one of these homemade DIY body wraps and see how wonderful the benefits can be. Your basic steps are as follows:
Apply mixture to your entire body, from the waist down. Once applied, you can wrap areas of your skin with plastic wrap then bandages. Some like to use only bandages soaked in warm water to wrap the area, to keep it hydrated longer, it is also a good method. We prefer to use plastic because we think it tends to increase heat. Anyway, both methods work fine; it is only a matter of taste…
1. Cellulite Body Wrap
• 1 cup Seaweed Powder
• 3 tbsp. (45ml) of Almond Oil or Olive Oil ( use your favorite oil here )
• 2 cups of warm water (you can also substitute 2 cups of coffee)
• Optional: 2 drops of anti-cellulite oils (Rosemary, juniper, or fennel)
Mix everything together until you reach your desired consistency. You want it to look like a mud, not water. Add the essential oils if you desire.
