Let’s see how you can imitate the steps easily at home and feel as pampered and nourished!

Step 1: Exfoliate

It is important to exfoliate the area on which you are going to use the wrap. You can use a dry brush to remove the dead cells but there can be nothing better than homemade body scrub crafted out of natural ingredients.

One terrific recipe is:

  • Use 1 part of coconut oil
  • 2 parts of coffee or sugar granules
  • Few drops of essential oil of our choice
  • While coconut oil works best, you can also use olive oil or canola oil in its place. Neither coffee nor sugar granules should be big as they can tear your skin.
  • The mixture should be spread generously on the body and the intended body-wrap area particularly and gently scrubbed using a loofah or a bath mitt.
  • Cleanse the area well but do not moisturize at the moment because oil has already done the job.

Another alternative is to use a home microdermabrasion machine for top notch exfoliation. It is best to use the machine a day before the body wrap to avoid overwhelming the body.

Step 2: Wrap it up

Now get your ready mixture to apply on your body. We would be discussing various recipes in the next section.

  • A thin layer of this mixture needs to be applied on the area which needs to be wrapped like areas which need to slim down, lose cellulite, firm up etc.
  • Avoid the temptation of applying too much of the mixture as it would not lead to a better result but simply create a mess.
  • Another tip is to apply the mixture in one area and wrap it up with a plastic wrap or an elastic bandage before moving to another area. For instance, you can apply to one leg, wrap it up and then move to the other leg.
  • You must take care that the wrap is neither too tight nor too loose. It should allow easy breathing and should not cut away the blood circulation but should be tight enough to cause compression.
  • Instead of whole body wrap, you can also do part by part wrap each day. For instance, you can do legs and lower body one day, stomach another day and chest and neck the third day. This becomes more comfortable.

Step 3: Sweat it out

Now you need to get warm and cozy by wrapping yourself in a blanket or a heating pad so that sufficient sweat oozes out of your body.

  • This should be at least for 30 to 45 minutes though you get better results if done for an hour.
  • You can remove the blanket or heating pad after about 40 minutes
  • Just relax the rest 20 minutes by reading a book, listening to some music or even doing some light exercises to enhance the sweating.

Step 4: Unwrap your body

After about an hour, you can remove the bandages slowly and carefully.

  • Next, take a shower to cleanse yourself
  • Remove any extra gunk
  • Do not use soap on the body or do any other thing to the area which was wrapped.

Step 5: Moisturize the body

Finally, moisturize your entire body and especially the wrapped area well and feel the magical difference to your body and skin!
