I’ve been hearing and seeing so much about this detox body wrap that I just had to try it myself. Hearing it could immediately shave one to two inches off my waist sounded like magic! This body wrap will help you get some of the toxins out of your body and rid you of bloat, but it’s not a permanent fix though. It can last for a day or two, but if you want permanent results, you still need some good, old-fashioned healthy diet and exercise.
This would be great for a special event, though. If you need to look better or feel better for a special occasion, then this will work perfectly. So if you want to see how you would look and feel with one or two inches off, let’s start wrapping.
Detox Body Wrap | How It Works At Home
What You’ll Need for This DIY Body Detox Wrap:
- plastic wrap
- clay mask
- 2-3 ace bandages
- belly band
- a bowl of warm water
- paper towels
Step 1: Open Up the Pores with Warm Towel
Put warm water in a bowl and soak your paper towel in it. Apply the warm paper towel to your tummy to open up the pores. Let it sit for about 5 minutes.
Step 2: Prepare the Clay Mask Mixture
In a bowl, mix equal parts lotion and clay mask. The clay mask will detoxify your skin and the lotion will give it the moisture it needs. Once it’s all mixed together, heat it in the microwave for about 15 seconds.
Step 3: Apply the Mixture to Your Tummy
Test the mixture first to make sure it’s not too hot. Then apply a thick layer on your tummy and to your sides. Wrap it with your plastic wrap. Go around for about six times and make sure that it’s tight but not uncomfortable.
Step 4: Wrap with Elastic Bandages and Belly Band
Wrap the elastic bandages around, followed by your belly band, to secure everything together. And that’s it! Cover it up and leave it overnight.
Step 5: Remove Everything and See the Results
When you wake up in the morning, remove everything and see the results. I’d recommend measuring your waist first before wrapping yourself up so you can compare the numbers. Remember, this is just a quick fix. Achieving permanent results will require a lot of hard work and discipline.
