We all know that when you lose weight, it drops everywhere. And it’s also true that there’s no magic pill or even a specific exercise to lose inches in a specific area. Many of us struggle with achieving the look of a toned, tight stomach. While body wraps don’t give weight loss results, there are effective wraps that are formulated to help the skin appear firmer, minimize the appearance of cellulite and redefine your body contouring. Used along with a healthy diet and exercise, body wraps may enhance your efforts and give you an extra edge in getting a flatter stomach.
How exactly does a body wrap work to help lose stomach fat? It’s been said that belly fat is some of the most toxic-ridden fat on the body. Almost all belly fat is toxic. Toxin-heavy fat is estimated to be four times harder to burn than just regular body fat. A body wrap can pull the toxins and will let the body burn the fat much more efficiently. Body wraps work on the premise that what you wrap yourself in will be absorbed through the skin. Detoxifying ingredients work to expel unhealthy chemicals from the body. Additionally, your skin texture will be more hydrated and smoother in appearance. Eliminating toxins helps purify the skin for healthy tone and firming benefits.
Body wraps are a popular treatment in spas, but you may want to do a body wrap in the privacy of your own home for a fraction of what spas charge. While an internet search will give you a variety of at- home recipes to try (a lot of them are messy), I like the ease and effectiveness of the It Works! Ultimate Body Applicator. The wrap is a non-woven cloth that is infused with a powerful, botanically based formula to deliver maximum tightening, toning and firming. It’s made with natural ingredients, and the active ingredient will progressively work over 72 hours. By the way, body wraps on your butt, double chin, thighs, calves, back, neck, and arms can give you a lifted appearance in those areas. You actually can target any area of your body that you want to change. It will likely take several applications to each area to get the results you want, but they do come. Of course, results vary from person to person, but typically results last 2-4 months depending on lifestyle and health habits.
Consider body wraps a step towards improving your lifestyle with healthy eating and exercise. Fresh healthy skin, a hydrated body, and healthy cells free of toxins provide the perfect start to beginning lifestyle changes for a healthier you.
