You Can Sculpt Your Body like Clay with These 8 Body Wraps
6Use cocoa, banana, and honey to hydrate and nourish the skin
Using these ingredients in a body wrap can do wonders for the skin. Bananas are full of vitamin A and E, while cocoa is full of antioxidants and hydrating agents. Honey contains soothing and moisturizing characteristics which are excellent as well.
How to do it
Add 1 tablespoon of warm honey and 1 tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa (not hot chocolate powder) to mashed banana and mix them till it appears uniform. You can even add some milk so that it becomes a consistent spreadable paste. Apply this paste to areas of your skin, wrap it using plastic wrap, and leave it on for half an hour.
7Use clay to sculpt your body
Clay wraps are very effective for detoxing your body and can even make you appear a bit slimmer. However, clay can’t exactly burn fat. It only helps in removing excess water and the effects of it are short term. So, it can only be used for special occasions and such. After soaking a towel in hot water place it on the areas from which you want to lose fat and leave it there for 5 minutes, so that the pores of your skin open up. Now, mix an equal amount of clay and your preferred body lotion and apply this mix to those targeted areas and wrap it up with plastic wrap. You can leave it on for an hour, but for better results let it remain on overnight.
8Vaporub can make stretch marks less visible
Using vaporub can make stretch marks on the skin significantly less visible. Since vaporub contain ingredients like eucalyptus oil, menthol, and camphor which are very beneficial for the skin, it helps in improving the skin’s elasticity and even softens the skin. Stretch marks are the result of deep damage in the skin and doing the vaporub wrap only once won’t fix the problem. It has to be done several times, but you will definitely get the desired results of getting rid of those stretch marks. All you have to do is simple rub a thin layer of vaporub on the areas that have stretch marks and wrap it up with a plastic wrap. Leave this on overnight or at least for two hours whenever you do this.
