The Easiest DIY Body Wrap You’ll Find(Lose Pounds and Inches in an Hour)
(first, a disclaimer: I am not a doctor, so I have no medical back up on this besides what I’ve found on the lovely internet. Results vary, obviously, there’s no guarantee this will work for you. Do not do this more than 1.5 hours per session and no more than twice a month, and do not if you are pregnant,nursing,under the age of 12, or have other serious medical conditions. Results are temporary if you do not remain hydrated,eat a healthy diet,and exercise.That is all.)
I’m sure you’ve all heard about the “It Works” Body Wraps that are selling out everywhere, and many other off brands, etc. I’m telling you not to pay the overpriced cost of those. You don’t need the at home versions with aloe, cayenne pepper, and 5 other ingredients either! You can do it right at home with two ingredients,and for less than $5! In an hour-hour and a half you could lose up to 3 pounds and 2-3 inches! (it really varies on the person and how much water weight you’re storing,honestly).
What you need :
- Any lotion (I used an old one from dollar tree. It really doesn’t matter which one, though the aim here is to sweat so a heavier one will do a better job (though make you more miserable,as mine did :P)
- Any cling wrap. I just used the $2.50 Glad from Walmart as that’s what we have around the house to wrap food/etc with. I don’t think a certain brand may be better than the other. But be aware that you will use a lot of this, so if you have food you need to wrap.. get an extra package.
How to Wrap :
-First step, coat the area completely with lotion. You want a fairly heavy load, so that the area will feel partially slick, but not too much(wouldn’t make wrap better or worse, it just feels gross honestly).
-Wrap several layers of cling wrap around the area. Some people like to just hold the tube and bring it around and around. I like to do individual large sheets. I circled mine about 4 times, but you can do more or less depending on what you’re comfortable with.
-Wait. A healthy amount of time is an 45 minutes-1.5 hours. Some people do overnight, but doing this for such a long period of time dehydrates your body, and especially if you’re not up to be drinking water while doing this=bad.
How to Maintain the Results :
-This is water weight. How to flush out extra waste/fluids in your body? Weirdly,by drinking more water. How much depends on you specifically, but make sure to basically just have water with you,and be (almost) constantly drinking. If it’s been an hour or two since you’ve had a glass of water, you’re doing it wrong.
-Continue to work out and eat healthy. If you don’t do this the results will be completely temporary!
Overall I was super happy with the experience! This was my second time doing it, and I think it’ll be a once a month thing, as it’s cheap and easy. I didn’t measure the first time, but this time I lost 1.5 inches and 2 pounds! It’s been a week and the weight hasn’t come back, so I must be doing a good job 😉 The first time I did my thighs as well,which was also awesome! I’m feeling pretty good about them right now, so they weren’t included in this batch.. maybe next time 😉 I hope you try this if you’re interested and absolutely let me know how it goes!
