Lose Inches with an at-Home Wrap

Are you looking to lose some inches but don't want to spend the money to go and get an expensive body wrap? Well, I have tried those pricey body wraps and I am here to show you how to do your very own body wrap right in your very home using things you may already have around the house.

What You'll Need:

  • Epsom salt,
  • Vitamin E oil,
  • an exfoliating glove,
  • clingy Plastic Wrap,
  • and some kind of heating blanket or heating pad.

What you'll need: Epsom salts, plastic wrap, vitamin E oil, and an exfoliator of some kind.

Time to Wrap!

  1. Before you do anything, go and turn on your heating blanket or heating pad on high!
  2. You might want to go to the bathroom and take care of any unfinished business before you begin because it takes 45 minutes and you won't be able to move much once you begin.
  3. Put your exfoliation glove in warm water for a minute, then put it on.
  4. Next, pour epsom salt into the glove—not a lot, just enough to cover half of your palm.
  5. Rub the epsom salt all over the area you will wrap. Make sure to rub it in good. It's okay to have a few visible grains of salt on you, but you shouldn't see many grains — it should all dissolve.
  6. Now, you are going to pat the area dry with a towel. Do not wipe—make sure you just pat.
  7. Pour on enough vitamin E oil to cover the area you are wrapping and rub it in.
  8. Okay! Time to become a plastic-wrap mummy. Take the plastic and wrap the area very tight. If you are doing your stomach, make sure to suck in. It should feel like you're wearing a corset. You want to wrap it as tight as possible because as you start to sweat, the wrap will get looser.
  9. After you have wrapped yourself, climb under your heating blanket or wrap the area with your heating pad and lie or sit still. You are going to be there for about 45 minutes, so make sure you have a book or something to do because you don't want to move during this for best results.
  10. After 45 minutes, remove your wrap and voila! You will have lost anywhere from 1 to 3 inches.

Do Wraps Really Work?

My answer: This is not going to make you lose weight. It works just like the wraps in a spa do, it helps you temporarily shed a little water weight. This is something you might do last-minute before an event or a get-together, but the results don't last. Maybe you have a friend's wedding coming up and you just need zip up that dress or those pants — this may work for that type of occasion. Nothing, and I mean nothing, replaces a healthy diet and exercise.
