How to Do At Home Detox Body Wrap?
A detox body wrap can be used to detox the skin and remove all the toxins by breaking down the fat which is the major contributor for the accumulation of harmful toxins. Apart from these, at home body wraps are believed to tone up and firm the skin by increasing the production of collagen and at the same time decreases the bloat.
How to Prepare for the Wrap?
Before wrapping, take a hot shower so that the pores open up and also helps in increasing the absorption. With the help of a buff puff or a washcloth, exfoliate the skin. During the detox wrapping procedure, make sure that the room is kept warm as the body has to be kept warm. You are required to drink a mix of 8 ounces of water with 3 ounces of lemon before, during, and right after your detox wrapping procedure as it will help in flushing out the toxins.
Types of At-Home Body Detox Wraps
Here are two commonly used body detox wraps:
Coffee Detox Wrap:
A coffee detox body wrap will help in removing the toxins from the skin. The presence of caffeine in the wrap mixture will act as a stimulant and helps in releasing harmful toxins and at the same time encourages the blood circulation. To prepare the coffee detox wrap, brew coffee up to 60 ounces and wait till it cools down to room temperature. To this, add about 1 tablespoon of seaweed oil, one tablespoon of olive oil and another spoon of eucalyptus oil. Mix all of them to form a nice paste. Put this paste on a sheet of paper or simply put it in a large bowl. Now, starting from the ankle, apply the paste and keep wrapping up with a saran or any other cloth. Once you are done applying, wait for about 30 minutes.
Clay Detox Wrap:
A home clay detox body wrap can be made by combining two cups of bentonite clay with about four cups of water, four tablespoons of olive oil and a half cup sea salt. Add sea salt to boiling water and then stir it to get it dissolved. To this add the rest of the ingredients and keep stirring till the mixture gets thick. Once the mixture cools off, start applying this starting from the ankles all the way up to the shoulders. While covering each part, make sure you keep wrapping up with cloth or saran. Lay down on an old sheet or a towel for about an hour or so.
How to Remove the Detox Body Wrap?
Take a shower to remove the detox body wrap. While taking the bath, remove the saran or cloth wrapping. While having your bath, use a bath gel that would moisturize the skin and at the same time softens it. Rinse thoroughly with warm water and then rinse again with cold water. This will help in closing the pores. Once you are done with the shower, apply a nice moisturizing lotion to keep the skin soft and moisturized.
