Homemade Body Wraps Are Cheaper
Making body wraps for weight loss at home is becoming more popular these days because they are cheaper than the body wraps that you pay for at a spa. I personally like making my own homemade body wraps for weight loss because the ones that I make at home are a lot better than the ones provided at our local spa. If you also want to learn how to make your own body wraps at home, then you’ve come to the right place. Here you will find a short guide on making weight loss body wraps at home and how to apply them.
How Body Wraps Help You Lose Weight
I learned how body wraps work by reading various body wraps for weight loss reviews. According to the information that I read, body wraps can make you lose weight fast because of its squeezing action. While your body is wrapped, your body tissue will compress itself and make you look thinner. The body wrap also extracts water and other toxins that cause you to gain excess weight. When the wrap is applied to your body, your pores are opened up and allow toxins and water to seep out. The excess water and toxins are absorbed by the body wrap and you lose the excess water in your body. Excess water is one of the most common causes of weight gain, so using body wraps is a great way to lose weight quick. Body wraps also cleanse your body by removing the harmful toxins that causes health problems and weight gain.
Making A Weight Loss Body Wrap
To make weight loss body wraps for your own use at home, you must first get some powdered clay. Any type will do. The most common types of powdered clay used in body wraps are seaweed, French green clay, and bentonite. You can buy powdered clay from spa supply stores and health food stores. Mix up the powdered clay with water until it becomes a thin paste. Some of the body wrap recipes that I read online mention that adding a few drops of natural essential oil to the mixture will help you relax and make the wrap more soothing once it is applied. The best essential oils for body wraps are citrus, rose, and lavender oils.
Applying The Body Wrap
You will need a friend to assist you in applying the body wrap. First, get a large sheet of cloth and lay it on your bed. Next, get a shower curtain and lay it on top of the cloth sheet. Next, wear a bathing suit or underwear for your weight loss wrap. Get some ace bandages and dip them into the mixture. Have your friend start wrapping you with the dipped bandages from your ankles up. Make sure that your whole body is wrapped aside from your hands, feet, neck, and head. It is best to wrap toward the heart because it promotes lymphatic drainage. Lay down on your sheet setup and then have your friend wrap the shower curtain and cloth sheet around you. Lay still for about 30 minutes before you have yourself unwrapped. Take a warm bath to remove the powder mixture from your body. Congratulations! You now know how to make the best body wraps for weight loss at home.
