Body wraps are quickly becoming a very popular and effective way to shed excess inches and reduce the appearance of cellulite while cleansing the skin and opening the pores. The debate is still open as to whether these wraps work for prolonged periods of time or not, but, like many fads, it is mostly the opinion of the user that matters. If it works, people will continue to do it until it no longer works. If it does not work, they will normally not try the process again.
A cellulite body wrap contains many of the same ingredients as the average body wrap. This includes clay or similar substance, essential oils, seaweed or algae, aloe vera, and like substances. The ingredients are combined to form a paste that can be brushed onto certain parts of the body, such as the legs, stomach, arms and chest, or used on the whole body for maximum effect.
Cellulite builds up due to circulation problems, eating/drinking habits, and accumulation of waste products in the body due to various reasons. Women typically suffer worse from cellulite and cellulite-related problems than men, but the problem can affect anyone with excess fluids and waste products. Body wraps help remove inches and reduce the cellulite by flushing out these fluids and opening the pores of the skin. The wrap’s material absorbs the waste material and excess fluids, and inches are taken off the body in massive quantities. However, experts warn that improper diet and lack of exercise will cause the fluids to return quickly, necessitating another wrap.
Cellulite body wraps work by stimulating the blood flow and breaking down the fatty material that causes cellulite. Ingredients such as algae help remove toxins from the skin and create a healthier appearance overall for the area wrapped. Many spas combine the cellulite body wrap with a relaxing massage or aromatherapy session for maximum relaxation and results.
One warning has been issued for those seeking or considering a cellulite wrap: It is important to allow a professional to either supervise or complete the cellulite wrap to avoid complications.
