Body wraps have become one of the hottest new health and beauty treatments in the world. Everyone from Hollywood celebrities and athletes to normal everyday moms are using them to achieve a slimmer waist. After just a single wrap session, chances are you’ll notice a reduction in your waistline, but that’s really just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the benefits of body wraps. In order to truly reap all the wonderful benefits they offer, you need to follow a few steps. In this post, we’re going to reveal some important tips to achieve a more beneficial body wrap.
Arguably, the single most important tip to remember when performing a body wrap is to stay hydrated. Body wraps work by using a combination of heat, pressure and a blend of proprietary ingredients to pull toxin-filled water out of your tissue and fat cells; therefore, the more water you drink, the more toxins are removed. Unfortunately, far too many people go through their daily lives unknowingly in a state of mild dehydration. Not only will this reduce the effectiveness of your body wraps, but it can also lead to other health problems.
So, how much water should drink for optimal detoxifying benefits? There’s really no easy answer to this question, as it depends on your age, body type, chemistry, metabolism and levels of physical activity. However, a good rule of thumb is to drink around 70-80 ounces of water each day, and possibly even a bit more on the day of your body wrap. Listen to your body and drink water when you notice the signs such as dry mouth and fatigue. Of course, you should stick with good old fashioned H20 and avoid sugary soft drinks.
Make It Tight
Another key tip to follow is to place the body wrap tight enough so there no pockets of open air around your stomach. If there are areas where the body wrap is not touching your stomach, the unique blend of ingredients won’t be able to extract the toxins. The bottom line is that your body wrap must be correctly applied so it’s somewhat tight around your stomach with no open pockets of air. If you are having difficultly with this, don’t be afraid to ask a friend or family member for help. Besides, this will give you the opportunity to see if they are interested in trying a body wrap as well.
