Wrap for weight loss has become not only fash­ion­able, but also very pop­u­lar in recent years. You can eas­i­ly make a wrap at home. What is it and how does it work? Read our arti­cle.

Wrap for weight loss

The pur­pose of the wrap is, of course, weight loss. But how exact­ly is the effect achieved?

Wrap­ping is pri­mar­i­ly the acti­va­tion of blood cir­cu­la­tion, strength­en­ing the work of the seba­ceous and sweat glands to remove excess flu­id and tox­ins. It is this effect that is achieved by wrap­ping prob­lem areas with plas­tic wrap.

To enhance the effect, a spe­cial cream or algae, hon­ey and oth­er com­pounds are applied to the skin before wrap­ping.

As a result of wraps, the skin becomes smooth, its con­di­tion improves, vol­umes decrease. Usu­al­ly the pro­ce­dure is done in beau­ty salons. But at home, its effect is no less!

How to do body wrap at home

Some­times you just don’t want to go to the salon — lazi­ness or no extra mon­ey, the rea­son is not so impor­tant. The main thing is your desire to make a body wrap at home. We will tell you how to do it.

  1. 2 hours after eat­ing or even on an emp­ty stom­ach, we begin to pre­pare for the pro­ce­dure. It is ide­al to do this at night, and spe­cial anti-cel­lulite creams are suit­able for this.
  2. Take a show­er and mas­sage the area where you want to do the pro­ce­dure with a dry brush. Thanks to this, the blood will cir­cu­late bet­ter, and the wrap will work for sure.
  3. A very good idea is scrub­bing before wrap­ping. Along with the mas­sage, the scrub will not only help improve blood cir­cu­la­tion, but also exfo­li­ate the skin so that all the right sub­stances can pen­e­trate the skin.

Wrap types

There are many types of wraps. And it’s hard to say which is the most effec­tive. We will talk about the most pop­u­lar recipes.

Honey wrap for weight loss

Hon­ey is a well-known ingre­di­ent in many folk recipes, and body wrap is no excep­tion.

This recipe is suit­able for wrap­ping the legs and abdomen. Here’s how to do it at home:

  • Take some nat­ur­al hon­ey and apply in a cir­cu­lar motion to the prob­lem area (waist, hips).
  • Wrap this area with cling film.
  • Keep no more than 40 min­utes.

Hon­ey wrap helps the body burn fat, relieves swelling, strength­ens the immune sys­tem. The skin not only improves exter­nal­ly, but also inter­nal­ly — it is smoothed, mois­tur­ized and becomes more elas­tic, its col­or evens out.

In addi­tion, dur­ing the pro­ce­dure, ben­e­fi­cial sub­stances con­tained in hon­ey are absorbed into the skin.

Such a wrap is con­traindi­cat­ed for those who are aller­gic to bee prod­ucts.

This pro­ce­dure is the most effec­tive for cel­lulite. How to make a wrap:

Take mus­tard pow­der, mix with hon­ey and, just like with hon­ey wrap­ping, apply to prob­lem areas and wrap your­self in a film. Mus­tard pro­vides an even greater warm­ing effect. There­fore, keep such a “com­press” for no longer than 30 min­utes.

The skin after such a wrap becomes smooth and elas­tic. The man­i­fes­ta­tions of cel­lulite dis­ap­pear.

berry wrap recipe

Vit­a­mins and antiox­i­dants con­tained in berries slow down the aging process. Acids renew the skin, pro­mote the regen­er­a­tion of its cells, the pro­duc­tion of col­la­gen. Berry wrap sat­u­rates the skin and the body as a whole with min­er­als and organ­ic acids, vit­a­mins and antiox­i­dants. Has a tight­en­ing effect.

This wrap is also effec­tive for cel­lulite. The recipe is sim­ple:

  • Apply a nour­ish­ing cream to the skin, then juice or puree from berries.
  • Wrap the area with cling film.
  • Hold for 20–30 min­utes.

Atten­tion! Use only if you are not aller­gic to berries.

Chocolate wrap against cellulite

One of the most effec­tive for weight loss. For choco­late wrap­ping, ultra dark choco­late is used. Although it can be replaced with cocoa pow­der. Melt the choco­late in a water bath, apply to the desired areas.

This wrap also has a ton­ic effect, relieves stress.

Seaweed wrap

For a sea­weed wrap, you will need kelp or crushed brown sea­weed. Whole thal­li have the strongest anti-cel­lulite effect.

Take 400–600 g of kelp, pour 4 liters of water. Apply swollen algae to pre­vi­ous­ly cleansed skin. Mucus on the sur­face of kelp enhances the effect of absorp­tion of trace ele­ments. Crushed brown algae can also be used.

Dry crushed algae should be poured with water in a ratio of 4: 1, mixed with a whisk and let it brew for 15 min­utes to swell.

The result of sea­weed wrap­ping is vis­i­ble after the first pro­ce­dure. Full course — 10 wraps every 2 days.

Wrap with cocoa: for the whole body

Wrap­ping with cocoa will not only help get rid of extra pounds. It will give mois­tur­iz­ing and nour­ish­ing effects to the skin. Antiox­i­dants, which are full of cocoa, increase the skin’s resis­tance, it begins to age more slow­ly, and flavonoids help blood cir­cu­late bet­ter.

For wrap­ping with cocoa, you need to dilute 2–3 table­spoons of the pow­der with 1 table­spoon of any veg­etable oil. The com­po­si­tion will need to be ground and mixed until a homo­ge­neous mass is obtained, and we rec­om­mend doing this on a steam bath.

Cool the mass to a com­fort­able tem­per­a­ture and add the fol­low­ing ingre­di­ents: 2–3 drops of orange or lemon essen­tial oil, half a tea­spoon of gin­ger pow­der. Mix the mass well again and cov­er the prob­lem area with it.

Wrap with cling film, and then sit under the cov­ers for up to three hours.

Clay wrap: for cellulite

Anti-cel­lulite wrap with clay helps to improve meta­bol­ic process­es in the skin. If you want to detox your skin, choose blue, red or green clay for the pro­ce­dure. Ide­al for wraps — blue clay, reviews about it are the best.

Blue clay should be dilut­ed with warm water and mixed well until a creamy mass is obtained. Do not use met­al uten­sils and con­tain­ers, oth­er­wise the clay will oxi­dize. A glass bowl and a wood­en spoon are best suit­ed for this.

Add your favorite essen­tial oil (but no more than five drops).

Apply the mass to the prob­lem area, wrap it with cling film and sit under the cov­ers for an hour. The main thing is to keep no more than an hour, oth­er­wise the skin will dry out. Wash off the clay, take a hot show­er.
